(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #241 - Meeting of June 21: Unitarian against austéritaires (fr, pt) [machine translation]

Date Fri, 12 Sep 2014 10:24:52 +0300

Saturday, June 21, one hundred and fifty associative activists, trade unionists and politicians from twenty to five different organizations [1] have gathered-es to the labor exchange to Paris for a single meeting. This wide arc strengths can help to support a strong response to austerity policies and the extreme right. ---- The purpose of the meeting unitary forces left 21 June in Paris was to provide suites in the demonstration on April 12, which was attended by 50 000 people and was the first act of opposition to the liberal capitalist policies of the tandem Valls- Holland after municipal elections were a defeat for the Socialist Party, like most of the left parties and saw the far right win in fourteen municipalities. The event was directed against the austerity policy PS wanted by the MEDEF, against the rise of the extreme right and the redistribution of wealth.

If it was a success in a context marked by a worsening of attacks against the working class and a great difficulty to collectively oppose it, she met mainly echoes in militant networks, which was not enough to draw prospects for a meaningful confrontation with the state and capital. On the other hand the overrepresentation of the Left Front and the mobilization halftone associations and unions have been a real factor imbalance.

Unitary framework unpublished

The meeting of 21 June had three objectives: to work in the development of emergency preparedness and an alternative to austerity policies, drive an action process within the period (struggles, solidarity actions, events) and develop the territories collective combining employee-es, unemployed, Retirees and young people, but also members of associations, trade unions and political organizations.

These objectives will be the heart of a new call saying what we want to do in terms of emergency response, alternative and mobilization process against the FN, MEDEF, the government and in support of struggles. A date will be proposed mobilization to federate initiatives against the austerity policies of the PS that will culminate this fall with the parliamentary debate on the Budget and Finance Act social security threat to liquidate the financing of health insurance as we know it, with serious consequences for social insured es.

This unified framework is unique in that it brings together a wide enough arc forces with targeted social as well as political. If the meeting of June 21, helped contain the hegemonic pretensions put forward by the Left Front on April 12 and increase the weight of associations and unions, while opening opportunities, much remains to be done to expand this gathering in other areas of struggle (youth organizations, anti-racist movement, anti-fascist networks, collective control...). This gathering has meaning and thus the future if it is a more to support the struggles, help them develop without substitute and without exploit frameworks struggle.

The other challenge will be to appoint more precisely what these organizations want and embody not only progressive opposition to the policies issued by the MEDEF, the State and the European Union, but also assumed a rupture with capitalism, otherwise it is smoking out of the anti-system rhetoric of the extreme right which impose increasingly.
