(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #248 - Together! The Return of the PSU? (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 27 Apr 2015 09:10:27 +0300

Constitutive General Meeting Together! formalized the constitution of the third leg of the Left Front actant in the merger of its components. What future for the self-management and anti-capitalist group in a coalition on the verge of explosion? ---- 31 January and 1 February, the General Assembly (in fact the delegates departmental AG) Set! was held at the labor exchange in Bobigny. Main issue? Record the merger of its components: unit Communists, the Fase, the Alternative, the anti-capitalist Left and various activists from the LCR (United Left, Convergences & Alternative). ---- Two days without a vote operation consensus, the debate subsided, the adoption of a political agenda, appointment of national leadership, the postponement of the points that upset since the process can not stop (!) Secularism , contributions, operation and renewal of management, reporting to elected officials, pooling of safes in each group ...

The official census shows 1,960 members (800 contributors) with 105 collectives present in 63 departments; 63% of members are over 50 years; 17% secondary teachers, faculty and among the 29% of retirees, the majority comes from the same environment. A number of founders and the founding of Solidarity showed a discreet but watchful presence.

End of election hopes

There are the survivors of all attempts, since the death of PSU, build a force electorally secured to the reformist left, but deploying intellectual pursuits sometimes relevant to "do politics differently." This is also Aminot Louis, former executive of the PCF Brest (veteran communist movement renovators) and one of the few workers in the room who was alone, ask the right question: "We welcome everyone to take a step forward today but n 'Would it not first necessary to take stock of our past failures?»

No popular base

So it is quite eloquent Pierre Zarka, former director of Humanity , on behalf of unit Communists were to double everyone on the left regretting too institutional aspects of the Left Front and dreading at the German example , that Ensemble! disappears in the Left Front as the Wasp was digested by the Left Party.

Another surprise: the introductory general report, the report on "Building Hope", the financial report and the presentation of the new management were presented by the leaders of the anti-capitalist Left. Probably the youngest activist network and better structured, its hegemony is nevertheless striking.

Several speakers expressed their dismay at the collapse of electoral hopes around a Left Front which is only a label on an empty jar. So far no action to take stock of the social struggles. The "Building of Hope" officially postponed due to departmental elections where the Greens and the Left Front depart in all configurations, including the most surprising. Yards supposed to give hope to the militants and an electoral outlet for social struggles. An outlet to allow, from the regional next fall, the union of the Left Front and the Greens, with a scent of Syriza in French ...

End of the AG. A new PSU was born but without popular support nor the political impetus of the old. No International vibrant and a huge mess sensation of militant forces merged here.
