(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #243 - Social traitors popular Riposte against capitalist puppets (fr, pt) [machine translation]

Date Thu, 06 Nov 2014 13:43:35 +0200

The change of government only reinforces the social war that the "left" power leads against the popular classes. To break the despair and finally raise its head more than ever it's time to fight, to unite and bring a revolutionary alternative. ----
Face the change of government most editorialists questioned whether the government had taken a liberal or social democratic turn. But these parrots have beautiful bourgeois chatter, the caravan passes. The eviction of Montebourg and others do not change much on the merits of government policy. ---- Right policy uninhibited ---- Since the Socialists are in power, they have a policy that goes in the same direction: tax breaks to the richest destruction of labor law, etc. Not to mention racist and security policy. Provided the declaration of love Valls companies, at the University of MEDEF, before an audience of cheering patrons, shows that time is accelerating. The political line does not change, but how to do so. Now it is a policy (right) totally uninhibited. Openly against political workers, precarious and youth.

A throttling policy that people claim European and French capitalists for their profits. Reactions rejoiced MEDEF show well, the bosses will get the jackpot and now have a free hand to ask what they want: 35 pm, Sunday work, minimum wage, attacks will multiply. The Socialists have understood that they could not rely on any form of political legitimacy to govern. The unpopularity breaking records and anger is brewing in the country. The class is completely discredited politicians. Open with the capitalists and the many "business" complicity demonstrate every day that clientelism and corruption are not exceptions but the daily ransom at all levels, a crumbling system. But regardless, the politicians will stop at nothing to enforce their policies. Passages in force at the National Assembly, opportunistic political realignments, increased against those who fight repression, all means are good as long as it is "in the right direction." Most governments have little legitimacy, the greater is their authoritarianism.

Uncertain development plan

The regime of the Fifth Republic based on bipartisanship through a strong institutional arsenal, cloisonné, which a party can represent 30% of the vote and have only a few members (in the same way that it allows a party which is 2% have 20). This institutional stability is a guarantee for the capitalists, allowing them to establish their dominance while playing the game of "representative democracy". The bourgeoisie's interest that things do not change and that the fatal game of the Fifth Republic continues. But things can change when the country is no longer governable because of social or institutional instability. The question now arises: traditional parties be able to govern in the usual institutional game? Nothing is less certain. The application of a policy of "austéritaire" by a political class became unstable and fragile, may require a change in the regime. The most likely scenario is that of an authoritarian trend, already underway, that the Plan is in the form of a technocratic government or a return of the "hard right" business. There is also the risk, more palpable, a rise to power of the extreme right whose ideas are gaining ground.

But the camp operated, the time for action is now in a situation that requires paradoxically act in both the urgency of a worrying situation, while building the medium-term foundations for a genuine alternative policy. Despair is not appropriate. The priority now is to give hope to all those who suffer capitalism. But it must be clear about the deadlocks in which not falling. Since 2005 successive redials the "left of the left". Often solutions "from above" that lead only a few election results before breaking figure in the logic of alliance that look good opportunists. Priorities lie elsewhere in strategies "political moves" that lead to the same disappointments and weaken the camp operated es. The land struggles is obviously a priority. These are the best antidote to the influence of the extreme right. They are the breeding ground for class consciousness and without a higher level of intense struggle, the question of an alternative policy is unrealistic. For it is not the policy that creates struggles but they that create the policy. Many demonstrations were held and / or develop (railway, intermittent and precarious, etc.). All signs of an anger that rises and asks only expand. In this sense, the convergence of struggles is an important issue. Although the prospect of a "central conflict" seems distant, convergences have already been implemented in some cities such as Toulouse and Marseille.

Unity around the struggles and emergency claims

In this regard the pursuit of unitary initiative began on April 12 is paramount. On two conditions. On the one hand the making of the centrality of the social movement organizations, the only way for the initiative to be connected to the dynamics of struggle and it is not hostage to issues politicians. On the other hand, is constituted a common set of emergency claims to federate beyond activist circles and fleshing out the next day mobilization.

A political project for tomorrow

In this period of political confusionism revolutionaries must not only be in the movie struggles but also need to wear a political alternative. It is therefore important that the anticapitalist make their voices heard to the reformist face. It is in this sense that AL initiated in different cities, anti-capitalist fronts, who want flexible convergence tools in action and claims of individuals, organized or not, identifying with a combative anti-capitalism, ecological , self-management and egalitarian. Develop this type of convergence, in a logic of mobilization without any electoral perspective should allow to be asked questions of alternative policy, the construction of popular power, based on both existing struggles but also act on alternatives.
