ON THE PRODUCTION OF DEATH [DECLARATION OF A DEATH STRIKE ON 28TH JULY 2010]
Written by DAMTP
We join the actions today, in support of the lecturer worker of Chosun University Dr. Seo Jeongmin, who comitted suicide. However rather than pray to Jesus, Isou or any other dead worker we hereby announce the
formation of a Dead Workers Union with whom we join forces to target the bosses.
This is an extension of the working class cultural practice of celebrating life and death, something targeted by right wingers as 'qabar puja'. This is because they have contempt for working class culture. Communists in the Sindh, whatever religion they are from and in rejecting religion, organized at shrines against imperial rule.
Since the death of Mohammed marks the end of the Age of Prophets it also opened the Age of Saints. It was the Lettrist Fazlallah who opened the Age of Divinity which was closed by the death of Isidore Isou in 2007.
Capitalists aim to have control of the all ages and therefore the production of life and death through converting death and life into cultural capital. They will also use cultural capital as a basis for the production of life and death. Workers however, disrupt this by taking control of their own labour - their life and failing that, death. Both life and death are a product of our labour and our labour a product of our lives and deaths. We must similarly subordinate culture to our labour - something that capitalists of course oppose.
The first members of the Dead Workers Council, are the Foxconn employees who, unable to form a union in life will haunt their murderers, their bosses until death. Writers have identified Apple as a major part of Foxconn's control but the fact that Dell and Hewlett Packard also are responsible for the Foxconn factories means that most of the international world wide network of comuting is now permeating with the reverberations of our comrades actions.
We also open our union to those army workers who are dying in imperialist wars around the world. Contrary to sections of the so-called left in England, we do not call for bringing the troops 'back home'. Rather, we
call for the control of troops to be put immediately in the hands of workers councils. Army workers and indeed police workers are denied the power to unionize. But the Capitalist bosses cannot control the Dead
We declare a death strike on 28th July 2010 - on the anniversary of the end of the Age of Divinity.
THE DEATH OF ONE IS THE DEATH OF ALL
