(en) [Argentina] Chronicle of May 1: An iron will to want to change everything By ANA (pt) [machine translation]

Date Wed, 15 May 2019 11:17:12 +0300

"A strong will for wanting to change everything." "The revolutionary fervor to transform society." "Solidarity and mutual support make us invincible." Often all these words are written or read, but rarely have any real meaning. Yesterday was one of those moments. ---- The act[in Buenos Aires]began a little later than usual due to the delays that we had many times to get to Place Eleven. But we arrived. The team mates redoubled the bet and we did not let them steal us on May 1st. ---- A fair claim, but operated by the UTA union bureaucracy, could not stop our attempt to remember the martyrs of Chicago and claim the "martyrs" of today. We saw each other's faces again to hug and raise our fists together. We do not come together to shout empty or unrealistic slogans, nor to try to unify claims with authoritarian sectors. We come together to scream at the imperative need we have as workers to end this system of exploitation and oppression. We reflect on the concrete and everyday problems of our class, how to be the same, about the murders of workers, the long hours of work; and the traps of democracy and all its parties, hoping to govern and squeeze us. We reflect on the role of the State in all its aspects as a player and guarantor of capitalism. We denounce the patriarchal structure that maintains injustices so old that we often do not see them, and expose them aloud against the macho prejudices we also have. But as one fellow said well, "the class struggle must be gender-conscious, and the gender struggle must be class-conscious." Nowadays there can not be one without the other and it is our task to promote this ideal.

On this day we realize that there are many more things that unite us than those that separate us and that our enemy is before us. But we also emphasize the small, horizontal, federalist organization in the workplace. We encourage participation and revolutionary militancy in the world of the union, not reproducing a banal quantitative logic, but because we really need to be much more to confront the state and capitalism. We need to be much more to tilt the balance to the working-class side. We need to be much more organized based on our anarchist principles of equality, solidarity and direct action.

We reflect and shout. We merge into our greatest desires and dreams. Some, addicted to clientelism, populism and verticalism, will underestimate the nearly 200 comrades who made this day intense. However, for us, the participation of all these people is invaluable, and we often do not see each other in the day-to-day, already demonstrates the love of freedom and passion for wanting to change the world. Activists and militants of different generations, with different languages, different processes and very diverse experiences, we unite in this day of resistance and struggle.

It was a day to nurture passion and increase conviction. It was a day to remember that we are not alone. It was a day to take another step in the battle for social emancipation.

Each May 1st makes us more invincible and we must continue on this path. It costs us a lot to agree, but we go together, following and growing.

Patience is as fundamental as impetus.

So many companions and companions did not fight in vain. We continue to remember and today it is our turn to keep the flame burning so the fire does not go out.
