(en) France, Anarchist Federation (FA) - For the self-energy, against nuclear power, manifest October 15, 2011! (fr) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 25 Oct 2011 19:14:44 +0200

Saturday 1st October 2011 ---- For the Anarchist Federation, the output of nuclear power also implies out of capitalism. - Getting through the NUCLEAR MANAGE OURSELVES ENERGY! -- The issue of production and access to energy is a key issue for global capitalism to modern states as well as for human communities. The depletion of fossil fuels and announced nuclear, technological developments, the pressure exerted by the environmental disaster of global warming, the need to decrease consumption, changes in state policies that regionalize a liberal economic perspective, the end of state monopolies in the energy sector...bring a new position on these issues. In France, the forced privatization of the companies EDF, GDF and RTE, the aid granted by the state, the forced march of Europe's energy mix to a CO2-free, the potential for decentralization of energy production ... encourage speculation which makes the production of renewable energy a new vein through the introduction of the carbon tax.

Small farmers or multinational firms, oil or nucleocrats French or foreign, all these people dream of transforming the natural free energy of the first environmental movement in El Dorado speculative and politically correct. The wind, solar, methane, ... are no longer free. It encourages individuals to reduce their credits by producing and selling renewable energy. Everyone at the smallest scale, is encouraged to speculate, however, an energy heritage, as well as water: this is a real commercialization of what is a common and inalienable .

This contradictory development of renewable energy should be the opportunity to innovate politically for a nuclear-free energy production, clean, decentralized, accessible and self-managed as a public service where users (individuals and communities ) and workers in these sectors would be involved. Already, in addition to the water sector, we see communities organize themselves into regulated to produce at least part of the energy consumed. Many associations working for a decentralized energy production, as close to the places of consumption, and public opinion seems to be sensitive to these issues that are as much political as technical.

Autonomy seems to be a target for production and consumption of energy, but it is not always possible or desirable. In addition to climatic conditions make human communities unequal, self can not be expressed except through solidarity, complementarity, and a production level that can bring about collective responses of scale without prohibit small-scale technical solutions. Can be produced locally, and without a state that centralizes control and without bosses who appropriate what belongs to us, but we must also build and provide a network of joint regional dimension and beyond.

The network privatized "Electricity Transmission Network" can become the network of public service units of a federation of renewable energy. These production units managed by communities, through regulated utility or cooperative ventures, non-profit, must involve employees, customers (individuals or enterprises) and communities to become a public service without nuclear energy, and self-directed. Its proximity to consumer should be able to reduce costs and losses in power transmission over long distances, facilitate awareness of energy savings and decrease their consumption, and facilitate the interest of the people for its management associated with it.

In this struggle, the personal services of energy networks as well as antinuclear associations should be informed and requested. The issues are essential and are based on three tracks:
1 - Creating a public-run production and distribution without nuclear proximity,
2 - Prevent the commodification and speculative nature of renewable energy production,
3 - Conduct the expropriation of private firms in this sector to impose the form of regulated products or production cooperatives self-managed, non-profit.

Without strong pressure from public opinion in this direction, the fight against new nuclear build and decommissioning of old ones, regardless of its radicalism, has virtually no chance of success.
