Cluttering the margins are examples of some of our inspirations from history and today
Direct action means that we take matters into our own hands, immediately. We do not wait for politicians or bureaucrats to give us permission, we do not allow for capitalists to give us excuses.
We are an organization of organizers, what this means is that our membership, as members of the community themselves, go out into their community and organize the people to fight back in various strategic ways. To become a member of the IWR is to become a working class organizer and to have the support of a committed cadre of fellow revolutionaries behind you as you fight for what issues matter to you and your people.
The IWR uses multiple simultaneous, complementary strategies, orchestrated by the same party, or in coalition with other like-minded groups, in order to bring revolutionary change. We are not being assaulted in a one dimensional manner, so we must not fight back in a one dimensional manner.
By revolutionary change we mean abolishing or subordinating capitalism, one workplace, or one community at a time.
1. Healthcare for all regardless of ability to pay.
2. Universal housing.
3. Universal employment and living wages in environmentally beneficial or sustainable industries.
4. Workplace democracy through either unions or cooperatives.
5. Gradual dissolution of the fossil fuel industry and comprehensive retraining of all its workers in renewables or fields of their choice.
6. An end to overutilization of the earth's resources, such as
deforestation and overfishing. Large scale rewilding (meaning the protection of our forests and water), wherever possible, and strategic, reasonable degrowth of all industrial/post industrial economies, as much as necessary for human thriving.
7. An end to the system of factory farming and the implementation of environmentally beneficial farming practices and an end to agricultural monopiles.
8. Downscaling of all armies', but most especially, of the American Military Industrial Complex, and total global nuclear disarmament.
9. The dissolution of the police state in all its forms including: the total eradication of racist and classist police violence, the end to punitive justice systems, in favor of systems oriented toward rehabilitation, and public safety.
If we can increase worker organization and radicality we can use that leverage to bargain for whatever is in the interest of the working classes. Through worker militancy we can achieve things like universal healthcare, because if the factories shut down, and the drivers quit delivering, the warehouses quit sorting, the railroads screech to a halt, and the minerals quit coming out of the ground, politicians and capitalist will have no choice but to come to the bargaining table.
Our focus is organization of the workplace, but we do not stop there. We believe in organizing the workplace and then moving to organize the community of workers in other ways.
To move towards achieving our goals and building membership we are going to create an app as an international forum for conversation between chapters. The best way to begin to build membership is often to do strike support for workers and unions on strike. Also, effectively helping communities in crisis can build membership so that we can begin implementing more ambitious permanent institutions.
Other novel parts of our party include that we establish permanent party affiliated worker cooperatives as well as party affiliated labor unions in order to build a broad and powerful coalition of working people. These institutions may elect to share a small portion of dues with the party in exchange for party resources and support in times of need.
Chapters aim to take as much power for themselves within their local communities, as possible. Our legitimacy to power issues from our direct democratic nature, combined with effective leadership. The goal is to build power, to challenge the union of state and corporation. Part of this power building necessitates the creation of coalitions with radical labor unions, radical factions within sluggish unions, and coalition and other like minded organizations.
One joins the IWR to become a revolutionary. There is moral urgency to defy the powers that be, and create a better world, if you do not feel this urgency, the IWR is not the organization for you. People are dying, we are dying, make no mistake, class war is underway whether we like it or not. This said we do realize that their are different extents to which people can participate, if you're overwhelmed as it is, there is still a place for you in the party. Join to FIGHT back.
