(en) France, Organisation Communiste Libertaire: What we want is not more bosser for bosses! (fr) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 14 Sep 2013 10:53:12 +0300

The vast majority of people who will show September 10 will do so because they want a stable work properly paid to an age enabling them to enjoy a healthy retirement for as long as possible. ---- This ideal of a human capitalism redistributing a portion of its profits to maintain social peace that has prevailed for decades in rich countries is not at all what is today for those who lead world affairs. They returned more openly bases of capitalist exploitation: paying the labor force as little as possible, precarious jobs, reduce payroll taxes, increase profits by financial speculation. So what if tomorrow the most proletarians have nothing to get a full pension : unemployable for 25 years, disposable 50, how could they justify 43 years of contributions even pushing the legal retirement age until at least age 65 in 2040 ?

In 2012, the CAC 40 companies have $ 41 billion distributed to shareholders, and tax evasion is estimated at $ 60 billion per year. The tremendous productivity gains for decades only serve to increase the fortunes of Bettencourt, Arnault, Pinault, estimated respectively at 23, 22 and 15 billion euros in 2013 ranking, while the pressure on labor income s ' increases.
This means that the MEDEF, the social- environmental government will grant it : extending the contribution period required for a full pension, de-index pensions to inflation, calculate the pensions of the public service of more than six current month are considered in the tracks Moreau report.
ANI ( national agreement ) of 11 January 2013 which resulted in the so-called " job security " law has already established within companies a real blackmail accept flexibility, lower wages and mobility on pain of dismissal.

To those who say that the class struggle is for the " old days ", we say that currently it is the bosses who openly lead and it is high time that we may live our turn !

Their "crisis" is not ours, but we nevertheless suffer more. Not only the number of employees decreases stable jobs in Western countries ( in favor of less expensive jobs in "emerging" countries, precarious contracts and statutes in OCD ), but most banks, there is little saved by States bankruptcy due to their hazardous speculations, now impose drastic reductions in public spending.
We will work harder for less money, we are subject to the laws of the market for former public services (transport, energy, telecommunications... ), and on top of that, the state will give us more of the same quality of service for what he has kept or given to local authorities ( education, health...). There is little that the police and the various tools of social control that not too may find their ways down, so it is necessary to maintain order and to bend the rebels.

But if we live in difficult times, it is also an opportunity for us to rest the fundamental question of the place of work in social relations. The refusal bosser for patrons is the relationship of subjection involved wage labor in a market economy. It is not to live at the expense of others as do the capitalists, but the means of production and exchange are not managed by their current "legal" owners or by state bureaucrats, but by people involved in the foreground, and what each one produces and consumes is thought and decided collectively through social relations based on equality. This is what we call communism. It is necessary now to think different from those that oppress us social relations.

Bertolt Brecht expressed something very similar in the Arts and the Revolution :
"As long as we can live in looking for the right deal, as long as they say" you or me "and not" you and me " as long as it will not move ahead but others, as long as there will be war.
As long as capitalism exists, as long as war exists. "

We still live in this state of permanent war, the news reminds us. We are still in an economic war is what is called "crisis."

Finally, we are also always in a situation of ideological war, the enemy "red" being replaced by "Muslim" or migrant " undocumented ". It is important to reaffirm and demonstrate through concrete solidarity that their wars are not ours, that we are all equal and operated all exploiters our common enemies.

One war should we, the class war !
