(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL n° special - Call "They block all": A first assessment (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 20 Aug 2016 14:33:04 +0300

Launched on March 22, calling unionists "It blocks all! "Gathered more than 1,600 signatories - including more than 120 union structures as such. Featuring debate renewed strike, he especially helped popularize Economic blocking objective. ---- When the call "It blocks all! "Is launched, the social movement has taken off with the demonstration of 9 March [ 1 ]. The goal is then to strike while the iron by placing the outset a simple question: if we want to win and so how is it done? ---- We did not leave anything. The experience of previous major movements helping, then it is obvious that it is blocking the economy that must be sought. And there is no blockage of the real economy without a strong strike rooted, widespread and extended massively. Throughout the fight against Labour law is what it is endeavored to share the call "It blocks all! ".

By the number, geographical origin and organizational diversity of its signatories - although activists and Solidarity structures represent more than half and those of the CGT more than a quarter - it can be estimated that these are tens of thousands of anti-unionists discussed, exchanged, shared the terms of the call. It has seen the logo "It blocks all! "Flourish on leaflets, banners, web pages ... doing rallying cry office for more determined to give nothing to the government and employers. No doubt that the dynamics of the call was not out of breath and able to adapt to the real movement.

Blockages without the strike?

The existence of the dynamic "It blocks all! "Was undoubtedly helpful. The website and Facebook page were sounding boards for many actions. Regular contributions punctuated the different sequences of the fight and tried to address different aspects (of repression, the link Night stand for example ...). We have seen in some cities create collective "we block all! "(Grenoble, Marseille, Nantes, Pau ...) a national meeting was held on April 23 and the Paris meeting on May 19

However, the difficulty in anchoring the strike and more to renew has sometimes led to retain the appeal that the issue of blockade of the economy, favoring activism ... the risk of disconnecting from the search for a relation of forces pressed the strike action. Other aspects of the appeal are somewhat remained in the shadows: around the autonomy of the social movement and claims (including 32 hours).

One thing is certain: this call will be allowed to step in the affirmation of a unionism contemporary struggle necessary to restore the sense and taste of collective action to the greatest number.
