(en) France, This is a message from french/english/italian/german anarchists living in the Paris region

Date Sun, 26 Mar 2006 19:36:09 +0200

This Message is destined to all of our sympathizers all
around the world. We are independant from but friends with the
French Anarchist Federation hence we will not speak in their name.
We would like to clarify the situation here since it seems to us that
many foreign medias seem to qualify the struggle as a purely
conservative "we don't want to change anything" type of protest, just
as they did when we proudly said !FUCK YOU! to Pascal "WTO"
Lamy, Bolkenstein and all those heartless fucks at the European
Comission and in french politics&medias. Our NO wasnt a racist no,
it was an anti-liberal no whatever the medias try to say. First we
would like to thank all of those who supported us and the student's
movement that's been shaking this decaying conservative country
for more than a month. A special THANKS to the italians of
"Contropodere" who organized themselves in less than 3 days to
have a bus from Rome, Torino, Genoa and Bologna (i think) come
up to Paris to help us in thursday's very sucessfull protests.
Tomorrow saturday 18th of march 2006 there will be a very big
protest throughout France to have the neo-conservative government
of mr chirac and villepin cancel the modifications they passed,
without debate in the assembly, to our work code. These
modifications intend to create a new working contract called the
CPE (that means 1st employment contract) which is going to allow
companies to fire employees without any justifications
WHATSOEVER. It is, for now, aimed at the 15-25 years-old
category which the government knows is so nihilistic that most
won't even take position against them being fired. Just as in
november they used old laws to "speed" (read : bypass) the (of
course pseudo) democratic process in order to pass laws that comply
with their capitalistic allies and vision of the new world order. We
had massive riots this autumn, which weren't manipulated or
controlled by anything (this needs to be known; the french
intelligence services themselves said it wasnt religious nor mafia but
a population fed up with their lives) except the desire for giving back
the violence poor people in the suburbs face everyday with the
police, the workplace and the society in general. France is no heaven
; Paris may be nice to spend a few days in but it's a hard place to live
in because we've got too much envy and too many people
surrounding it, all wanting the supposed parisian golden life of
before. We anarchists are trying to broaden the struggle which is
being diverted to reformism by sold out student unions (UNEF
mainly which is the youth branch of the "socialist" /yeah right!/
french party) and to some extent autonomization has increased a lot
in a month. As of march 16th about 3/4 of the 80+ french faculties
are on strike, high schools in Paris, Rouen, Caen, Toulouse,
Marseille, Bordeaux, Limoges and many more are also joining the
fac students. Strikes are decided by assembly voting and propositions
for the strike usually amount to 3 to 1 for. We managed to unify the
movement to some extent with immigration rights groups who will
also be victims of this piece of crap, just as will the unemployed and
the poorly educated. The worker's union, just as in 68, are scared by
the autonomization of the various movements but according to many
polls 65+% of the population wants the text cancelled.We hope that
union members BY THEMSELVES will help the movement with
logistics and their experience because the union directions will not
declare general strikes for the youth. We have also rediscovered the
joys of fascism, for about a week now between 50 to 100 extreme
right (UNI-RED-FNJ : Uni is a rightwing student union, RED is
very badly named ;-) because its a racist/homophobic union and FNJ
is the youth section of the Front National ie the pigs) activists have
been patrolling the small streets of the Latin Quarter, more or less
ignored by the cops, with bats and helmets, beating all anti-cpe
people they cross. Needless to say we beat them up badly but they
are quite motivated and scare the first comers. For a week now more
and more people are fed up of union leaders calling them to protest
from 2 to 5 and then thanking them for coming and telling them to
go home, that it was a good protest. We do not want negociations
concerning this CPE we want its total retrieval. Thursday more than
a thousand people bypassed the union's call and carried on
protesting, attacking police and trying to infilter the fortified
Sorbonne faculty to regain control after we were ousted at 4am 8
days ago, long after the collaborating union leaders had gotten home
and had their nice little tea, satisfied that their union's logo would be
shown on all tv channels ; those people are what we call here
socio-traitors, just like the communist, green, socialist and
revolutionnary parties (PC, Les Verts, PS, LCR) and the workers
unions directing bodies (CGT, CFDT, CFTC mainly). We know that
many smaller europeans countries's politics are aligned on those of
the big three euro-states and that is why you must understand that
we are trying our best to let people know that we need to
internationnalize our struggle against global State oppression and
everyday precarity. For now it is difficult to find ways to broaden our
revendications because most students innocently think that it is just
the CPE which is the problem. Anyone who went to Genoa, Seattle
or Geneva knows that a mere work contract is in reality nothing
compared to the oppression of the World Bank, IMF and all those
fucking Bilderberg/SkullsnBones/whatever elitist societies which
plannify the coming of their all seeing all hearing New Order
powered by constant oppression meant to wear combativity down
and technological superioty/elitism. We know we're not alone, we
want you to know you're not either. Tomorrow we will be dedicating
the fights of the day to all the freedom loving people of the world
who face 20x more harder repression and living conditions than we
do, people in the US, elsewhere in Europe, the peasants, students,
women, children who fight everyday in China, Korea, Asia, South
America, Africa, Iran, Irak, ALL the people who fight against
religious, economical and political obscurantism, oppression and
tyranny. ONE YOUTH. ONE WORLD. ONE LOVE. May, with the
help of everyone, freedom and justice reign! Amor por los Chiapas
companieros! :-)
