Paradigm Shift 4zzz fm 102.1 friday 20 Nov 15
On the 100th anniversary of Joe Hill’s execution, Andy and Ian discuss his legacy.
Andy interviews a local wobbly, Asger who says that the Industrial Workers of the World are revolutionary, grassroots, international, working class organisations. They resist hierarchies and work among the casualised and fast food workers.
Ian read out their an excerpt from the IWW constitution:
“The working class and the employing class have nothing in common … between these classes a struggle must go on until the workers of the world organise as a class, take possession of the earth and the machinery of production and abolish the wage system.”
They play a collection of Joe Hill Songs.
