(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - Europe facing employers, international solidarity (fr, pt) [machine translation]

Date Sun, 04 May 2014 14:49:26 +0300

Across Europe are employee-fight against the austerity policies of the ruling elite. Everywhere in Europe, capitalists have the same strategy we put in our free competition to take down. Facing Europe patterns, we must take advantage of May 1, international day of struggle, to remind us that our only weapon is the solidarity of working people! ---- The European Union es tau service management. ---- The EU is antisocial. Bosses benefit from the EU to take our social gains permanently down. The EU allows for example the French employers to bring in workers applying its Bulgarian-Bulgarian law. These worker-his so-called "detached-es" and are paid a pittance and French patrons benefit to blackmail the French employment employee-es. Our enemies are not working class people foreigners, are the bosses who exploit us!

The EU is undemocratic. In 2005, the people of France and Ireland says NO to the European Constitutional Treaty in referendums, but the same text, renamed the Lisbon Treaty was adopted, this time without asking our opinion. The EU is a rather arbitrary decision where technocrats and lobbyists representing the interests of capitalist rule.

National governments are responsible. The EU has the power that our governments are willing to give him. It is often an excuse for antisocial conduct reforms ("imposed by Europe"), while these reforms were negotiated between states.

For Europe of the bosses, the only law is that of profit. For them, our salaries are "obstacles to growth" and public services markets to conquer, to be privatized. Step further: They now trade in discreetly with the United States a Transatlantic Partnership (TAFTA), which remove all "obstacles" (tariffs, social rights, health conditions or environments) free trade aims.

Protectionism is not the solution

Faced with these fanatics of free trade, some to the left and right, propose to break with Europe and carry out protectionist policies in France.

Leave the euro? For protectionist, leaving the euro would devalue the currency ... but it would increase the price of imports. Proponents of this solution say that this would be offset by an economic recovery, but nothing is less about! Anyway, the real problem is not the euro, is capitalism.

Close the borders? Protectionist want to restore customs border barriers but nothing says that such a policy will not result in price increases. The only winners, it will be the French bosses, with whom we have no common interest! This is in solidarity we will change things, not letting himself bamboozled by speeches against "the Greeks" or "the Germans "If wages rise in EU countries where they are lowest, then it becomes more difficult for French employers to put pressure on our social achievements.

Nationalism is a dead end

The far right shows his account these proposals to better fit the employee-es against each other. She verbally attack multinationals but by chance we never hear criticism of the French employers, yet first in line for our wages down and destroy our pensions. Indeed, the National Front will be the last bastion of national capitalism to maintain profits French bosses while watching the social movement.

Relocate production, that is to say stop importing products from across the world, is a social, ecological and democratic necessity. But this means breaking with the capitalist economy and therefore solidarity with the employee-es other countries.

Our only weapon is the international solidarity of the working class people

The EU is a weapon of the capitalists. It is illusory to try to transform it from within. must get rid of uniting our forces.

Day to day, it is in each country is leading the fight against the capitalists. But capitalism is international and must therefore build solidarity between the peoples of Europe and the world to fight. Such solidarity can come that down because we are all and all in the same boat facing the capitalists.

Across Europe, mobilizations against austerity held yesterday in Greece and Spain, in Bosnia today ... tomorrow in France? There's interest to develop the trade union struggle and type all together at the same time to bring down the EU and capitalism.
