The debate on the Jasic Struggle

17th January, 2019

Last July, 89 workers at the Jasic company in Shenzhen applied to found a workplace union but their application was refused and later their leaders were temporarily arrested. This escalated the confrontation between workers and the local authority, and several dozen Maoist students from all over the country came to support the workers under the umbrella organization of the Jasic Workers’ Support Group.

Last August, after the first arrest, there were already some debates outside Mainland China, involving those who are in solidarity with the Jasic workers but who hold different views over the issue of the evaluation of the situation and tactics chosen.

試解釋流氓無產階級一詞

文:梁寶龍

前言
左派人士的最大的缺點是口號高於一切,進而是教條主義,如無産階級、工人階級和流氓無産階級等詞我們理解有多少呢。更有的是隨意指駡人是右派或法西斯主義,部份提出這些言詞的人,其談話內容與這些名詞對不上嘴,故龍少試整理有關文獻解釋這些名詞,更冀望左派人士能回應,一起深入討論這些名詞,不再空喊口號。 Continue reading 試解釋流氓無產階級一詞
