Extract the last Common Cause express produced during the protests against the austerity of October 31, 2014 (2 of 3) ---- The major unions such as the FTQ and the CSN have done very little to combat austerity in the past decade, when it is not downright ignorant of the struggles. How to collect their desire to launch a united front on their own bases and platform claim? Recall that a coalition already exists, the opposite pricing and privatization of public services (which the Union Libertarian Communist sympathizer was also a member) Coalition. This went much further in terms of claims and was significantly more active. ---- Central propose to postpone the zero deficit and suspend payments to the bottom of generations - just to accommodate flexibility for the next " round "of negotiations on the public sector. For a social front that seeks in principle to unite around the central community movement, the student movement and civil society, it is as thin proposal. Nothing about social justice! And even less about the redistribution of wealth!

Push further reflection. It is not evil in itself seek to unite activists across the political spectrum, but is critically needed on asymmetries of power that have historically played in such fronts. Are we talking about a leader and front without recognizing the diversity of its members and their tactics or talking about large organizations that are in your head? Is that large organizations will give each other their material resources and organizational capacity to activists in other struggles of the popular classes and workers? Or will they simply retreat into the deepest of the fear of poking the angry fringes of their workforce rightmost corporatism? We have reason to be skeptical and begin to think about alternative paths.

For our part, we believe that the only possible social front is one that would go directly to the bottom, by people who struggle upward. That activists can work to build solidarity and popular autonomy without being subject to anything by big machines and their union incomparable lot of resources.
