       The capitalist system we live under always shows its true colours when it is up against those who fight for workers rights. The more active the individuals or groups become in defence of their conditions the heavier the system comes down. It will always go as far as it can legally and then resort to other more covert actions if the legal ones don't work, but they will do their damndest to eliminate all opposition to their grasp for profit.
     Too many ordinary people pay with their lives just trying to improve their living standards. The following short extract from Labourstart, says it all:
       The annual survey of trade union rights was released today -- and I'm sorry to say that the news is not good.
       According to the International Trade Union Confederation, 101 trade unionists were killed last year.
And that represents a 30% increase on the year before.
That even a single human being dies because they are members of a trade union is a tragedy.
That 101 are killed in a single year is a moral outrage.
   Only when the workers control the means of production and distribution will this moral outrage stop. as long as the interests of the corporate world hold sway over our lives we will have to defend ourselves against the violence inherent in this system of exploitation and repression.
