The law "work" presented by the government represents a massive attack against the workers. It is part of the offensive by the governments of right and left, in the service of the bourgeoisie, to break more than a century of workers' conquests. ---- The labor code is in fact historically the state of the balance of forces between the classes, it is an indicator of the minimum level of rights snatched from the bourgeoisie by the struggle of workers. ---- Even if employers regularly crowd the foot is a support on which the employees, particularly in small companies, but also in industries where qualifications and / or the level of collective organization is small, can use to limit the level of exploitation that their imposes the employer's dictatorship. ---- the law presented by attacking the "hierarchy of norms" is to break all the collective, class, replacing it corporatism, individualistic atomization in which employees, employers face the dictatorship, are still losers.

the first victims are the proletarians of the most marked by precariousness sectors including sectors dominated by women, so women will pay a high price for this law.

The government project thus promotes the logic of the referendum to establish less favorable agreements that the labor code. Now these referendum will necessarily be carried out with the "employer knife" on the throat.
This is to break the resistance of combative syndicalism - which managed eg to defeat the Sunday of Labor widespread in a number of commercial enterprises - by opposing a parody of him "plebiscitary democracy" for imposing employer requirements: employees, atomized, individualized, without collective organization, are much more vulnerable to employers who knows resort to coercion and blackmail to impose his law where no collective resistance exists.

The state, far from being a neutral instrument of the general interest, confirms once again with this new attack against the working class, its role of defending the interests of the dominant classes. At the same time it seeks to liquidate what the bourgeoisie and himself had to concede as a result of workers' struggles, it criminalizes activists and trade unionists, as shown as the repression of the Goodyear workers, employees of air France, or in Lyon, union activists Jtekt, Mac Donald ...

After Macron law, the multiplication of gifts to bosses in the form of exemptions from social contributions and tax exemptions, this law is in the offensive that led the bourgeoisie and governments internationally against the workers.
the defeat is an absolute necessity and should be the first step towards the overthrow of the balance of power to recover the power to decide our lives which deprives us the state and the bourgeoisie, and to retrieve the fruit collective of our work that the bourgeoisie appropriates exploiting us.

Facing this juggernaut, the solution is therefore not in nationalism who offers us the sacred union with our exploiters, nor in a hypothetical "recomposition of the left", but in the reconstruction of a powerful labor movement in internationally, on class and mass bases, but also independence from the state and the bourgeoisie.

In this reconstruction, the class trade union movement has a central role to play as a tool of collective organization, if he can reconnect massively with its origins: the umbrella organization of mass, federalism and union democracy, independence facing the state and politiciens.Retour automatic line
this, it is we, workers, the build investing again in these mass resistance by wielding tools and a combative voice.

Today, we need to build a massive power struggle by strikes and collective action to roll back the bourgeoisie and the state by requiring the withdrawal of the "work" law.
For this, we must foil the maneuvers government is to co-opt organizations "union" such as the CFDT and UNSA making them some concessions to preserve the essential. It is each and everyone to work for the extension and progression of force report from March 9, working to block the production and trade by the strike and collective action of any kind.

What to build the balance of power?

Workers and remote workers: organize collectively seeking receptive and responsive colleagues to collective action.
Rely on local trade unions that include workers of a locality.
Workers and workers on strike, militant trade unionists develop contacts with the surrounding business workers, activists between combative and militant trade unionists.
Developing mutual aid to organize flying pickets or strikes at the entrance of industrial sites and business parks, shares of collective mobilization (leafleting) or to disrupt the flow of goods.
Organize meetings gathering basin unionized and non-unionized, to unite the local collective actions.
Develop militant strike funds and organize collections for a prolonged struggle.
Workers and unemployed workers, retirees, homemakers: Join collective initiatives by basin, collective action in the employment center to mobilize workers and unemployed workers.
Workers and workers in training (apprentices, high school, student): Blocking CFA, High Schools, universities ...
Targeting employers institutions (MEDEF, CCI ...) for collective action of blocking and / or occupation.
We absolutely must organize to demand the withdrawal of this law.
This mobilization could be the start of a convergence of struggles beneficiaries to all.
