Against Charest : Pissed Off and Precarious!
The unemployed, part-timers, the untrained, youth, the
non-unionized, women, immigrants, all of us, are
precarious workers. And when we are fired,
rationalized or sub-contracted, we become pissed off.
Tommorow, in solidarity with the participants of
national day of workplace disruption called by the
CSN, we also want to voice our discontent with the
Charest government.
But precariousness rimes before anything else with
insecurity and isolation. No wonder there are 5-6
suicides every week in Quebec related to distress from
work. Working more, always faster, to be paid less,
performing and adapting to a production rythm that
must run around the clock; this is our daily toil. And
now that the cost of labour is the main point of
competition between employers, any return to a period
«full employement» is impossible.

We say NO to an uncertain future, to a future without
job security, without social benefits and without
hope. This is the future being offered to us by the
Charest government. Let us not kid ourselves : with
all the new laws being proposed (article 45, bill 8,
etc.) it's cheap labour, destructured workplaces and
busted unions that the State and the bosses want to
insure. To put things in perspective, the last time a
Quebec government removed union accreditation was with
Duplessis some 50 years ago in a time of war on
organized labour.

Thus for us workers, this means the lowering of our
working conditions. In a society where work remains at
the center of our preoccupations because without work,
there is no possiblity of a decent income and in turn
a decent life, we refuse this «march towards progress»
that will bring forward lay-offs, flexibility,
delocalisation and misery. Obviously, we will be the
big losers in this process.

We intend to show the Liberal government that, in a
consumers society where everything has a price, we are
not merchandise to be sold!

Be there this Thursday December 11th at Berri Square,
10:00 am. And, as it seems the government is decided
not to concede easily, this is only the first step of
our determined stance to refuse to destruction of our
social gains.


(Montreal) Rally and Demo against Charest : PISSED OFF

Charest and the Liberals want to scrap everything.
They're busting unions,
forcing the unemployed back to work and trying to
destroy the public daycare
system. On December 11th, as workplaces are disrupted,
the Liberal state
machine will be disrupted as well!

Thursday December 11th 10:00
Berri Square

A call by the Northeastern Federation of
Anarcho-Communists (NEFAC)
