(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL n° special - Universities: Like a missed opportunity (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

The student mobilization against the Labour Law is fast and hard part since March 9. Although blown quickly fell, the key is there: apathy is broken, the alarm is possible. ---- On March 9, at the initiative of Trade Unions (Solidaires-Etudiant.es and UNEF), general meetings were held in fifty institution of higher education. For the first general assemblies, they were exciting with investments away from the ridiculous (400 in Nantes, 600 at Paris-VIII, 120 in Poitiers ...). ---- The national action days on 17 and 24 March led to a generalization of the AG in the universities ... but without quantitative scale change. Outside of Paris-VIII and Rennes II, no massification. Most facs have rarely exceeded 400 people AG, and the movement has not expanded beyond the core initiator.

Of course, school holidays have not helped to maintain a national dynamic and the exams have caught us-es in mid-May, when the blocking actions began to multiply. Yet it would be too easy to see the reasons for this failure to expand. It will discuss the balance sheets collectively to advance and interrogate activists practices once the final movement.

Administrative closures and CRS

In most facs, the AG quickly became the place of organization of the fight. As well as mobilization committees involving students, union members or not. The first coordination francilienne, March 17, has been the scene of tension with the UNEF, who tried to sabotage the self-organization. Nevertheless, on March 19 universities throughout France were able to meet in Paris-VIII for a first National Student Coordination, which has set up a Spokesperson's Office, in order not to let the door be Unef Floor-proclaimed movement.

Soon, at Tolbiac, Bordeaux, Rennes and Lyon, among others, university presidents have responded with their new favorite weapon: the administrative closure of sites, to deter blockades and occupations. These closures are emptying the facs, preventing students and students consolidate it. Sometimes under the guise of emergency rule, the university authorities have involved the police, as in Lyon-II, Strasbourg or Tolbiac, where she was particularly violent.

Hot this fall?

Once again, the need for struggle and self-managed unionism obvious. To promote the fight, to provide students and students tools to keep control of their movement to converge with other sectors. But also to organize those who are determined to continue fighting every day!

After years of apathy, the facs finally stirred, thousands of people participated in street demonstrations. Even if it was only a flash in the pan, it demonstrates a willingness to dissent. And if the fall was warmer than expected?
