On March 22 the appeal "is blocking everything! "Was launched by 100 trade union CGT, Sud-Solidaires, FSU, CNT, CNT-SW LAB ... A little less than a month later, in mid-April, he collected nearly 1300 signatories over 70 union structures and as such participated in the mobilization dynamics. ---- In the context of the fight against labor law brings over a union call? Initiated by activists of Solidarity and CGT mostly already invested es in 2010 calls for a general strike[1] "It blocks all! "[2] seems to have achieved its goal: to be a kind of" public contribution to the debate "of anti-union, regardless of their organization. ---- A blow to the profits of the bosses ---- The social movement that began March 9 is the time accompanied by the National Inter-CGT-FO-FSU-Solidaires which notably called the strike days on 31 March and 28 April. However, there is a blind spot in the national inter (mainly related to cautiousness and procrastination of FO and FSU): the generalization and the continuation of the strike. It is precisely these issues that are central to the call "It blocks all! "... Since these are the conditions without which there can be no real blocking the economy.

Or block the economy is a blow to the profits of the bosses, the very ones that dictate the laws that the government Hollande-Valls-El Khomri is quick to implement. So to get the full withdrawal of labor law, it is this goal that must be set. Knowing that it is not within the evidence for wage earners and previous losses (2003 and 2010 in particular) weigh on trade union strategies that often struggle to articulate anchorage ground and radicalism.

In that, far from being an incantatory call for a general strike, the approach of the appeal is precisely to build this economy the blocking objective by the debate in collective work in teams activists in professional union structures (section federations) and inter (local unions, state ...). Generalize and extend the strike, it can not be symbolic: it must be brought and shared by wage earners, and massively.

And this is also local claims from sectoral need to link with the fight against labor law: whatever our bosses make us suffer, the project El Khomri worsens and promises new threats to the rights of working people.

And to make stronger this approach, the Inter-context, at base, is undoubtedly the most relevant. This is not to build a kind of "super-oppositional trend-Inter" which would contradict the federal conception of unionism where debate is built democratically in organizations (even if it is sometimes difficult ). Provided why the debate could it not be public and inter-union? This is what is wanted by the call "It blocks all! "Which, suddenly, makes visible and credible union power to the struggle. Among the signatories, there are activists from many organizations and professional sectors. If the signatures emanating mainly activists and structures Solidaires (a good half) and CGT (more than a quarter of the total), then finds the FSU signatures, CNT, CNT-SO, LAB, and, more symbolically, the CNT-AIT, the peasant Confederation, the STC, the UTG ... and even the CFDT and CFTC! The participation of students and student union Solidaires, CGT, but also of the UNEF or Fidl, is also worth mentioning.

All that to say that from a clear, public and assumed to intersyndical debate also helps dispel sectarianism. By opening up to the signing of union structures (which was not necessarily the case calls from 2010), the call "It blocks all! "Is somehow based on" pact "strategic to the base. It is well reproduced and relayed on several sites and pages unions of various organizations, magazines and newsletters ...

He has also been the basis of meeting as was the case in Nantes on April 14 where 85 Solidaires union, CGT, CNT, FSU exchanged on mobilization, pointing obstacles, seeking to draw the best tracks of convergences , reflecting the relationship to maintain with the local Night standing, the fight against repression and they have ... They also agreed to meet again to take concrete and useful initiatives in motion. This is also what is sought with the national meeting of signatories scheduled Saturday, April 23 at the labor exchange in Paris (which has not yet taken place at the time of this writing) during which moreover speaking time should be reserved for the General strike Committee of Night standing.

Strike up!

"It blocks all! "And takes its place in the social movement in progress. Finally calling to "strike up" to raise their heads and break with the everyday to start the offensive. The call features eg to register the claim of 32 hours a week "without reducing salaries or flexibility without scam the key as were in many sectors the" 35 hours-Aubry. ' " Because fighting "qualitatively" on time and working conditions, it is also ... and do it for this a victory against the bill El Khomri is necessary to revitalize the struggle unionism, restore full confidence in the camp work in its collective strength. Because the heart of the call "It blocks all! "There is still affirmed this reality: Workers are everything, without them and them, nothing gets done.
