Obviously, when the conditions of retirement and the expected amounts of income are strongly challenged, claim that we want to live without work and therefore not contribute to his old days is utter an enormity. The vast majority of the hundreds of thousands of people demonstrated on May 27 did so for reasons exactly opposite to what is stated on these bands: they want a stable work properly paid to an age enabling them to benefit a healthy retirement for as long as possible.

The ideal of capitalism, human redistributing part of its profits to maintain social peace that has prevailed for decades in rich countries is not at all what is today to those who conduct the affairs of the world. They came back to the basics of capitalist exploitation: the workforce pay the least, precarious jobs, reduce payroll taxes, raise profits through speculative financial. So what if tomorrow will most proletarians nothing to get a full pension: 25 years unemployable (except apprentice art that are cheap and students free), disposable 50, how could they justify 43 years of contributions even pushing the legal age of retirement? To maximize profits, it is even very interesting to abolish the wage system: self-contractors keynote speakers are the new ones to suffer. Submitted to outsourcers in reports of commercial type, they they will be forced to work more to earn the minimum (see the article by Christopher). Their situation is similar to that damned jobbers or day of the 19th century.

Their "crisis" is not ours, but we are facing yet more and more. Not only the number of payroll jobs decreased in stable Western countries (in favor of less expensive jobs in the "emerging" countries, precarious contracts and statutes in fake) but also banks, rescued recently by the States bankruptcy due to their hazardous speculations, now impose draconian measures to reduce public spending (see the article by Sylvie). We will work more to earn less, we will be (and are already partially) subject to the laws of the market for former public services (transport, energy, telecommunications ...) and in the bargain, the State will give us more the same quality of service for what he has retained or assigned to local authorities (education, health ...).
There is little that the police and various tools of social control are not likely to see their resources diminish, so it is necessary in times of crisis to maintain order and to subdue the rebels. It is more necessary than ever to show our solidarity with the victims of police and judicial repression, but also to denounce and oppose the practice to new ways of flicage populations. (See folder solidarity and Big Brother)

But if we live in difficult times, is also an opportunity for us to sit key issues. The slogan "it does not work at all" returns us to the fundamental place of work in social relations. The refusal is declared is that of implied subordination of wage labor and involved as much the business relationship of self-contractor. Obviously, this does not live at the expense of others as do the capitalists. This is what each e-book and thought to be consumed as part of other social relations. based on cooperation, respect for others and our common property (our planet). Even if we live in a society where human relationships are the opposite of what we want to establish, it is necessary now to think of different social relations, Alfredo Gómez what Muller calls "the ethical life of anarchy." Capitalist society is based on the partitioning and exploitation. Already, in person only operating and fighting collectively for better living conditions, we can achieve a little loosened the stranglehold of the machine. If you think more relationships with others in a logic of keeping-with all our strength to be singular, rather than the cons, we can take a big step.
Brecht has expressed something very close in Art and Revolution: "As long as we can not live by seeking the best deal, as long as they will say" you or me "and not" you and me " as long as it will not make progress, but ahead of other, as long as there will be war. As long as capitalism exists, as the war Prolonged exposure exists. "
We still live in this situationof permanent war, even if armed conflict were territorially distant from Europe, it is always involved. We are still experiencing economic war is what is called "crisis". Finally we are also always in a position of ideological war, the enemy "red" being replaced by "Muslim" or migrant "undocumented". It is important to reaffirm and demonstrate concrete solidarity with their wars are not ours, that all the exploited are our equal, and all the exploiters our common enemies.
