Socialist revolutionaries, Che Guevara part of Chicago teachers strike
September 11, 2012
On Monday, teachers in Chicago went on strike, but a post at EAG News says the strike looks more like a rally for socialist revolution complete with Che Guevara t-shirts and anarchist flags as "a supportive collection of political radicals" joined the teachers on the picket lines.
According to one flag-bearing protester, the banner represented "revolutionary unionism, which, according to a post at the International Workers Association, "aims to unite all workers in combative economic organizations, that fight to free themselves from the double yoke of capital and the State."
"Its goal is the reorganization of social life on the basis of Libertarian Communism via the revolutionary action of the working class," the IAW explained.

'The Obama administrations pose of neutrality in the Chicago strike is a fraud.'
The teachers work for "the State." If they don't like it, they should quit.
Isn’t the head of the CTU a former Weatherman terrorist, Ayers buddy and CPUSA member?
I hope you all see that the Teachers Unions are platform to kill the constitution and insert communism in our lives. Overthow of the government is its aim.we need reform now..
‘Social anarchism or anarchist communism, or again libertarian communism, is a doctrine of social revolution which speaks to the proletariat whose desires it represents, whose true ideology it demonstrates - an ideology which the proletariat becomes aware of through its own experiences.’

A common Anarcho-Syndicalist flag.
In the early 20th century, anarcho-syndicalism arose as a distinct school of thought within anarchism. With greater focus on the labour movement than previous forms of anarchism, syndicalism posits radical trade unions as a potential force for revolutionary social change, replacing capitalism and the state with a new society, democratically self-managed by the workers.
Anarcho-syndicalists seek to abolish the wage system and private ownership of the means of production, which they believe lead to class divisions. Important principles include workers' solidarity, direct action (such as general strikes and workplace recuperations), and workers' self-management. This is compatible with other branches of anarchism, and anarcho-syndicalists often subscribe to anarchist communist or collectivist anarchist economic systems. Its advocates propose labour organization as a means to create the foundations of a non-hierarchical anarchist society within the current system and bring about social revolution.
Bill Ayers: "I considered myself partly an anarchist then and I consider myself partly an anarchist now. I mean, I'm as much an anarchist as I am a Marxist which is to say I find a lot of the ideas in anarchism appealing."
