But isn't the idea "one world - one working class - one slogan - one size
fits all"?

Maybe we should have had a 'shoot your children in the military' leaflet for
the Bud Billiken parade, but in the event we settled on a leaflet that said
"Bring the troops home now - end the occupation of Iraq", with some other
text.  The idea is that we should actually organize workers instead of
horrifying and enraging them.  I guess that makes us right opportunists :-(
