(en) Brazil, [FAG] VIEW ON FAG conjuncture OF THE STRUGGLES OF THE LABOR MOVEMENT AND OF THE POPULAR (pt) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 17 May 2014 18:57:47 +0300

National mobilization against the World Cup in Brazil worries governments and puts the Low on the offensive. Since 2013 Brazil lives an adverse scenario with gigantic mobilizations of the streets by force questioned the order of the system imposed by governments and their allies at national level and international. ---- The country is going through a favorable climate for the organization of the oppressed, creating a sense of hope for the people's movement. In 2013, the unions came timidly to the streets, in large part because of the feeling of rejection of the masses, who saw themselves not represented by these structures of workers' organizations, since during the last periods, most of these were co-opted by governments and their leaders became bureaucrats on call, ready to pull the brake bases outraged by so much class conciliation; not to mention the fragmentation of the working world as an element that characterizes this period. However, it must also be said that many resist and followed combative.

But this year, the struggles of a number of categories mobilized from the base is showing another way of doing trade union struggle. The role of the workers themselves, who make decisions over the heads of union leaders; mass assemblies in which decisions are ratified and offices away from shady deals made beforehand. It is the resumption of a personal experience of revolutionary syndicalism blossoming within the sectors of the oppressed, in which the popular movement takes the tool of direct action as a strike against the employers and governments. History tool is true, but that is now taken with another intention, going beyond merely gaining corporate agendas and political expressions. Most of the strikes have questioned not only the working conditions, but in general, the direction of the country, both economically and politically. A good portion of the oppressed classes shows that are no longer to accept decisions from the top down, despite the control measures that governments have at hand. There is an early, but alive maturity between sectors of Low.

There are already several cities that rise in strikes and demonstrations challenging the mega event that is about to happen in the country. Large urban occupations, dozens of categories on strike and protest by all sides to the streets to say they do not want more oppression and repression on account of an event that benefits the political-economic groups involved in this world.

The strength of the streets in 2013, the context of large mobilizations with an immense variety of agendas, often dispersed, also showed the weaknesses of a movement with no organizational base. If on one hand the June days put us firmly on the political scene, also put us face to face with the inadequacies of the popular movement. Most people who participated in the protests in 2013 were not referenced by unions or popular movements, which helped in the evacuation marches and mobilizations. After the whirlwind, the masses without political references or organization based out of the streets; but the effects of large protests remain alive and broth to give this year, we can without a doubt be more likely to result in the background. This new configuration of the fights on the streets again placed the country, departing from unions and popular movements, has created a more fertile setting for the projected demands are guided by movement of the Low in March from a perspective of accumulation of forces and construction of popular power.

It is apparent desperation of governments in relation to the possibility of uncontrolled during the World Cup games. What is at stake is to maintain order or succumb to the possibilities a convergence of the trade union movement called for a general strike, which can indeed endanger the World Cup and the Olympics. This does not mean that the games will not happen, but what will be the weather for this is the big question! It is known that there is no appeal of the world's population, the appeal is contrary to repudiate spending on games and structures that do not benefit the population. Politically it can be asserted that the World Cup in Brazil is a failure, however the government's measures in collusion with FIFA is to contain, at whatever cost, protests and so will use brute force to silence the voice of all that are rising in struggle. There is already a strong wave of criminalization triggered by political activists in the demonstrations are organized, as well as strong criminalization of poverty that remains strong in the country and this time finds an open path to put into practice his plan of social cleansing.

Is need to encourage reporting internationally, the laws and ordinances that are coming into force, all of them to curtail freedom of speech and expression, as is the case of this law to be voted on in Congress criminalizing protest as terrorist act . At this time we have cities in the country that are being besieged by National Security Force (NSF) as is the case of the city of Recife. The army is already installed in the cities hosting the World Cup and today, May 15th, is the day that his intervention is authorized, if deemed necessary. In some cities the fact locked streets is already banned and we know that the strikes that are in place will be harshly attacked 'return to work and the order established by the same leeches ever (employers and governments).

If voltage is time for Angle is because the Low are offensive.

We need to articulate an increasingly combative drive to the popular sectors and the labor movement, because we know that there is still a government allied base within these spaces, always ready to shield the forward movement of the workers against the government in place, further in an election year. But it is crucial to go leveraging an independent from governments and political bosses, direct democracy, breaking centralism, bureaucracy, putting into practice values vital to a movement of class and combative nature, with broad class solidarity and autonomy, always seeking the basic work as a form of organization, with political training to prepare new subjects capable of being protagonists of their demands, be aggressive in advertising from below, is to expose our ideas or to counter the ideas of the elite and governments.

There is only one way for the conquest of the oppressed that is the relentless struggle against our oppressors, and popular direct action without recoil of numerous offensives that we suffer, keeping the direct link with social inclusion, seeking to strengthen the social field organizations , plotting ways to advance levels of struggles in which the environment can offer us, always attentive and organized.

Against repression promoted by Angle, struggle and organization of Bass!

Next in the struggles and strikes!

Strengthen the union and popular movement with direct democracy,
class independence and governments!

By force of streets and grassroots organizations!
