How to Defeat NACT's Attacks

Redrave warns against relying on the Labour Party to save us from National/Act's attacks on unions, wages and benefits. They say that in the current capitalist crisis National needs to cut wages benefits and social services to save the bosses' profits; Labour has always existed to reconcile workers with capitalism; and increasingly, both parties will sacrifice our needs to meet the demands of Chinese imperialism.
Instead they say, we need to break with the Labour Party and union bureaucracy and fight for what we need now: including living wages and benefits, unions on every job site under control of the membership with recallable delegates, workers committees in every city, a general strike to smash NACT's austerity programme, nationalisation under workers control without compensation, and a revolutionary party for a socialist Aotearoa.
