"We celebrate today the first of May, the international workers day; but the real workers' day is the one on which all workers of the world are liberated from slavery and when they become partners instead of wage workers.
I have presented what I have said before you so that you shoulder the responsibility. I assure you that my duty and the duty of my colleagues who have led the revolution are only to participate with the people in order to liberate themselves and live a happy life." ~ Muammar Qaddafi.
"On this day we call on the workers of the world who are suffering from deceit, exploitation, oppression and slavery, to rebel against cruel social relations by seizing factories and production units to control their rights over production and form their people's congresses and committees. ('No democracy without popular congresses...Committees everywhere!') The outbreak of the workers revolution shall sweep the world, destroying forces of exploitation and oppression and raising the banner of the dictum "Partners in production not wage-earners", guided by the second chapter of the Green Book."
