Our comrades in Russia (you need a browser with Russian characters to visit)
Our friends in Italy...
and our other friends in Italy!
mcspotlight Quite simply it is to
anti-McDonalds sites what Pele was to football, Ali to boxing and Richard
and Judy to day time TV. With millions of hits and almost as many pages, it's
the ultimate source of information on our employers. "An image conscious corporations
www.mcdonaldization.com is run
by an individual and has lots of interesting information and links.
www.fuckmcdonalds.co.uk it does
exactly what it says on the tin.
Most folk get out of McDonalds with a few burns and cuts but things can be
a lot more serious for coal miners. Many former miners suffer from pit lung
and other conditions. Having screwed folk out of their jobs, the government
want to screw them out of the pitiful compensation they are entitiled to as
well. www.minersadvice.co.uk offers
advice on making claims for compensation and loads of other stuff. Lots of
people have wanted to shut this site down, check out why.
Have a look at the great Italian based workers site at www.chainworkers.org,
they've been involved in organising protests and demos around McDonalds workers
The IWA is an international group of anarcho-syndicalists. Unlike many trade
unions, this organisation is not hierarchical and is controlled by the ordinary
workers. Members of the IWA have been a great help to MWR. Visit
their web site!
Another organisation that has helped us is the legendary Industrial Workers
of the World (IWW) or Wobblies. One big union
for all the workers in all the industries all over the world! Like the IWA,
IWW campaigns are controlled by the workers, not by another set of bosses.
And if these ideas sound good, then check out www.anarchosyndicalism.org
McJobs are part of a general trend of employment where jobs are more temporary,
less secure and workers are less well trained. In the building industry this
leads to an increase in accidents. Casualisation Kills! Simon Jones was killed
on his first day at work on a building site. People like Simon Jones get killed
at work all the time and little gets said about it, but the Simon Jones Memorial
Campaign decided to kick up shit. Here's
how they did it.
www.retailworker.com is a US based
site for anyone working in the retail industry. A really great and helpful site whre they don't shy away from controversy
Fight Poverty Pay Campaign, sounds pretty relevant doesn't it? Visit
their web site for more.
One week your wanting a few pence more an hour and to get the managers off
your back, before you know it you're worried about all sorts of things: peasants
displaced from their land by cattle ranching in Brazil, the conditions dairy
cows live in, rainforest depletion and climate change... There are tens of
thousands of campaigns like ours going on all over the world, and we've all
got a common enemy- capitalism. Many of these diverse struggles are linked
together by a network called Peoples' Global Action (PGA)

Drugs, politics, football... Urban 75
it's the way forward
Apparently some people read things called books, if this appeals then where
better to get them than AK Press? They've
got all sorts of books, although not enough have pictures.
If a meaningful life and an end to exploitation sounds a wee bit distant
then perhaps you can find romance and/ or get laid while we're waiting. Try
Love@Lycos, you can claim
that you work at something less embarassing and maybe escpape the misery and
pointlessness of it all for two minutes of intense physical pleasure.
