The problem with gesture politics and single issue protests is that the Bourgeois State simply ‘meets’ and ‘contains’ each flare-up, keeping one disaffected group from another (with the false propaganda that each special interest group has nothing in common with one another). This is the working class disunited by the Bourgeois System – and kept disempowered in that state. This is the opposite process to unionism. Instead of protesting this issue or that issue from a one dimensional perspective, all protests should be presented for what they are – a concerted bourgeois attack upon the working class! Bourgeois attacks on the homeless, Muslims, Jews, poor, unemployed, homosexual, Black, White, Asian, animals, housing, healthcare, work, benefits, sexuality, gender, defence, science, technology, sport, art, travel and general culture, are all important issues in their own right, of course they are, but they also indicate different aspects of attacking the samething – namely the working class! We should ‘unite’ around our differences to become stronger in the face of bourgeois attack. In this way, if we respond ‘together’ as an organic whole, the bourgeois class would have to tread very carefully as it faces the possibility of losing all its dominance over us – which should serve as the premise for all united working class protest. We must ‘take’ our rights because the bourgeoisie will never give them freely away.
