Subject: Sweden-More Social Democratic Betrayals!
In an unprecedented bluff the Social Democracy, in answer to the
rising massive movement against their governmental policy of
dismantling the welfare state with its bougeois partners in the Center
Party, have come up with a so called
secret plan to
50,000 new jobs in the public sector. And the mass media appears
to have been completely sucked into this big bluff. Naturally the
Social Democratic press is hoping for anything at this point to
present to the Swedish working class in order to try and defuse the
growing rage against the party and the open split between the party
and its historic base the trade union movement.
In every major channel on TV and Radio and in the press they were
talking about the
50,000 new jobs. And the whole thing is a big
lie! A big bluff! And an attempt by the Social Democracy to make even
more (!) cutbacks and higher taxes. Every Socialist, Communist,
worker, or person must throw these lies right back in the faces of the
Social Democratic government. Openly and clearly say that in fact the
so called 50,000 new jobs that they are proclaiming is nothing other
then a party leadership who is lying in our faces and trying to do
another hat trick with numbers!
What this in reality means is not 50,000 new jobs-but quite clearly a declaration by the Social Democratic government to reduce unemployment payments even more, and to raise taxes! And No new jobs at all!
Because in fact the new jobs that the Social Democratic government is
talking about do not exist! They say that this package in reality is
to stop the local governments from laying off 40,000 to 50,000 workers
in the public sector this year! In other words jobs that exist now! So
this is not
new jobs. But old jobs. And in order to pull off
this hat trick they are saying that we will
have to go in and
reduce unemployment benefits even more! That is the whole gist of
this operation! No knew jobs just new excuses to impoverish the
unemployed even more then they are today.
Every trade unionists, every unemployed person, must throw this
garbage right back in the faces of these
Thanks for nothing! And we must even go futher. We must bring down
this present Social Democratic government and its bougeois
partners. They are liars and have deserted both the trade unions and
the hundreds of thousands that now are on the dole. Our demand must be
for putting forth a independent list of trade unionists, socialists
and communists on a indepentdent program that will not only roll back
the dismantling of the welfare state but extending it!
Our war cry should be. No political support to these
Break with the Social Democratic Party!
For a *real* workers government of independent trade unionists, socialists and communists!
On a program that rols back the dismantling of the welfare state and extending it!
Naturally this would be a great *real* step forward. But the present
attacks on the welfare state here in Sweden and the criminal politics
of the Social Democratic Party traitors who have deserted the trade
unions and the working and not in the least International solidarity
with the third world is in reality a part of the general attack on the
poor and working class Internationally all along the line. The central
reason is that it is not any longer
Communism that is the main
enemy after the disintergration of the former Soviet Union under the
treacherous leadership of the Stalinists. The main enemy for the
bougeois Internationally is the trade unions and the working class in
their *own* countries. Thus they have declared war on all of the gains
made by the workers movement since the end of the second world war.
Only by understanding that we are once again witnessing a confrontation of two fundemental classes in society the bougeoisie and the proletariat. And the bougeoisie is well organised and attacking all along the line. The working class has been left in a vacum of polical leadership with the destruction of the Stalinist parties and the desertion of the Social Democracy into the camp of the bougeoisie. Only by going forward and creating a new leadership, can really solve this crisis. And this leadership must be forged in the daily struggles going on today Internationally.
A party with the most militant and determined Working class vanguard must be created and armed with a program which will not only be able to fight the defensive battles -but can when the time comes go over to the offensive and make a desperate struggle for political power. And this must be done in every country of the world.
Thus only by creating a revolutionary International that can once again can take the lead can the future of a working class victory be made possible. All other ways can only lead to great new historical defeats!
Forward to a class concious working class vanguard.
Forward to the reforging of a revolutionary International
