The Dye workers and Silk workers of Paterson and Lodi have given their answer to the bosses' slavery codes of the National Recovery Act. You have carried through a general silk strike against the N R A attack upon your living conditions!
THE COMMUNIST PARTY GREETS YOUR STRIKE and PLEDGES ITS SOLIDARITY AND FULL SUPPORT IN YOUR FIGHT FOR HIGHER WAGES AND DECENT LIVING CONDITIONS!
The COMMUNIST PARTY SUPPORTS THE FIGHT of THE NATIONAL TEXTILE WORKERS UNION, LEADER OF THE DYE STRIKE, for UNITY of all WORKERS, ORGANIZED and UNORGANIZED, to WIN THE GENERAL STRIKE.
The slave codes which the government is trying to put thru for the silk and dye workers is part of the National Recovery Act. The N. R. A., was passed by the Roosevelt admistration to guarantee the bosses' profits in the crisis, and make the workers pay for this. The N. R. A. which masquerades as a prosperity act, is in reality wage-cutting, price-raising act, outlawing strikes, increasing political terror to force the workers to accept the slavery codes.
The N. R. A. was passed to prevent the struggle of the unemployed and the employed workers for unemployment and social insurance. The N. R. A. is a war measure of the government, which at this very moment is preparing for intervention in Cuba to crush the Cuban workers and save the profits of the American sugar and railroad bosses.
Moffet, the U. S. labor "conciliator," who calls your great and heroic strike, - "tresson," is meeting behind closed doors with the dye house bosses and the A. F. of L. officials to decide on how to break the strike. Moffet is threatening terror in Paterson -- a sample of which was given in the tear gas attack in Lodi.
The bosses and the government which represents them, fear the Communist Party. The Communist Party is the only Party which exposes the true meaning of the N. R. A., and of the strike-breaking schemes of the National Labor Arbitration Board. The A. F. of L. leadership fully supports the Roosevelt program. The Socialist Party which considers the wage-cutting, strike-breaking N. R. A. a "step towards socialism," is trying with radcal phrases to win the workers for it.
Only the Communist Party leads the masses in struggle against the Roosevelt hunger and war program. The Communist Party supports the struggles of the workers for increased wages to meet the rising living costs, for unemployment insurance, agains political reaction, against the preparations for the bosses' wars. The Communist are in the front ranks of the workers battles, leading the fight against hunger!
DYE WORKERS and SILK WORKERS of PATERSON! SUPPORT YOUR PARTY, THE COMMUNIST PARTY, THE ONLY PARTY OF THE WORKING CLASS.
Close your ranks. Stand firm and united for your demands. Resist all attempts to weaken and break your heroic fight. Only thru militant struggle can you win. GO FORWARD TO VICTORY.
COMMUNIST PARTY, U.S.A., Paterson Section,
