Anarcho-Syndicalism declares class warfare and organised struggle to be central to their cause. Look to any other idea on the libertarian left and you’ll see an adoration for the working class.
Never mind the fact that many anarchists today seem to be creeping into the lower-middle class. Then there’s the fact that many (not all) anarchists will never make their career in the blue collar workplace. Never the less their love for the working class remains.
The first thing anarchists worry about when the latest cuts come from government bodies is how the working class will fare. Most anything is an “assault on the working class” when it comes to cuts (unless their defence related).
This gives the average person another good conversation starter if conversation slows between you and an anarchist. You only need to know what EU country is currently facing austerity measures, and drop that into conversation. They’ll list off all the “assaults on the working class.” Don’t overdo this though, you could get them too excited.
