CGT of blocking a fuel depot, the secretary of the UD-CGT which threatens to call the cops, workers who go on strike, the arrival of mobile guards ... story. ---- During May, we all have fed these events repeatedly that we only walk, before everyone goes home. We must move on. After a morning broadcast tracts, we talk over coffee between activists, mainly from the local union CGT Cournon (63) and unlabeled. Decision is then made to communicate during the demo to mount a blocking action in stride. ---- On May 17, at 14 hours, fifty people set off to block the oil depot Total Cournon. Night People standing Clermont-Ferrand join us fairly quickly, which keeps blocking several days and promoting the convergence of struggles. ---- Forty-eight hours later, all of the Deposit operators went on strike to support ... the blockage! A historical event, its scale, because it never happened. It must be said that, contrary to refiners, employees of oil depots are almost never strike. These small structures where we are rarely more than ten people, and very little to be unionized.

Based imposes his will

This departure strike is more than welcome for blocking, well than led by UL CGT is not without difficulties ... Quite astonishing way, the office of the UD CGT of Puy-de-Dôme, instead of supporting , trying to stop the action, the Secretary-threatening us even send the CRS! Yes the secretary of the UD ... But what is the basis which imposed its will.

After three days, the impact of blocking becomes really sensitive: much of the corner of stations has more than diesel, and quite squarely Total stations are closed, contrary to what can say the press.

The blockage will last for six days in a great atmosphere: CGT, libertarian, night deboutistes without labels ... Alas I will be the only striker of the site to participate in daily AG blockers. Too bad, because the discussions are rich and establish prospects for the coming struggles - I reflected the aftermath colleagues.

The gendarmes break the blockade on May 23 But the site staff will continue the strike even for a week, preventing service stations to be supplied. And mobilization does not fall: it is a site Atac Logistics which is then blocked and an oil depot Bolloré, then the Aulnat airport.

The upshot of this kind of action? Moral pumped. The desire to fight again, without resignation. Because it is possible, we met people from different backgrounds, able to unite in a single struggle. And the feeling that if this practice becomes commonplace, it can block the economy on the occasion of a great social movement, and it will be an unstoppable means to be heard.
