In rural areas and small cities, standing Nights were able to find an audience and play a catalytic role. Example Fougeres. ---- Ferns, old industrial city of 20,000 inhabitants and inhabitants 50 km from Rennes, is one of the localities where Night Stand could flourish. Bringing in its early days, twenty participants and participants each week, the event still attracted about 140 in late June for a projection Thanks Boss. The movie theater was twice too small to hold all these people! ---- In April, during the first meeting, the issue of labor law was soon complemented by a review of representative democracy and a reappropriation of political issues (education, security, emergency, ecology ...). ---- If the issue of labor law could sometimes be evaded, it is also because the space has been invested, in part, by those excluded from work, or too insecure to live the fight in a company. This finding is, in a sense, reassuring the people furthest from employment that can not fit in a traditional activism, including union, reinventing struggle spaces.

Sustaining these places public debate

However, avoid the question of the social struggle in favor of a democratic experiment is to ignore the links between work and the organization of society. Also, Fern Stand has asked about ways to strengthen the mobilization, while experimenting direct democracy. In Lannion (Côtes d'Armor), Night stand organized economic blockades, becoming a place of organization of the fight. In some localities, the night deboutistes were able to shake a little too low to spur trade unions, only the agitation.

The main limitation of Night Stand is the turnover. Sustaining these places of public debate, propose concrete actions while allowing a political career are major issues. The junction between a self-determination to the fight and territorial autonomy is allowing, in Fougeres, to overcome this difficulty in part. Like other ferns standing tied theory to practice (distribution of leaflets, film projection ...) to more easily integrate new people without having to repeat some zero debate with each new deadline.

Night stand can be questionable in many respects, but the collective will to reclaim public space and democracy worth the pitfalls that these initiatives can always meet.
