(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - social movement, And now: block everything! (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 30 May 2016 13:22:49 +0300

Unionists Call "They block all! 'Meeting held Thursday, May 19, the evening of a new day of strikes. In the great room Croizat the Labour Exchange Paris are 200 militant.es are venu.es discuss mobilization underway. Impressions. ---- Launched on March 22, calling the union "is blocking everything! " Participate today undoubtedly the social movement underway with over 1,500 signatories ... including 100 union structures as such (CGT, CNT, CNT-SW SOUTH Partners for the most part). ---- With a website and a Facebook page active, sending thousands of stickers at the four corners of the hexagon, regular contributions animation collective that marked the news of the fight (on the punishment, reappointment strike ...), now the call is a thread that runs hundreds of union teams beyond their organizational labels.

In some cities (in Marseille, Nantes ...) local collective gathering militant.es CGT, CNT, CNT-SO, FSU and SUD-Solidaires were even born. We can therefore consider that the call has helped anchor the economy's blocking of perspective as a condition of a winning move. That, more or less, which gave all its interest in the mobilization meeting of Thursday, May 19

Two interventions "thematic" a crackdown on the movement, the other on inter-linkages from the example of Saint-Denis (93), launched the meeting. A series of interventions on the state of mobilization by SUD and CGT trade unionists from different professional sectors followed - SNCF, Computer, Aerial, education, étudiant.es, Commerce - which helped to better measure the difficulties ... but also the will to fight!

Interprofessional structures clôturaient the "party meeting" the CNT, CNT-SO, the Inter trend Emancipation and the Union syndicale Solidaires thus spoke. Finally, a quick summary and some proposals were made before giving the floor to the room for interventions that stressed the need to build convergence strikes and organize the blockade of the economy.

What can we learn from this meeting?

First question, sensitive, resistance to repression remains highly topical: at the meeting were announced putting into custody five comrades Solidarity étudiant.es in Rennes and Lille, search of premises Solidaires Ille-et-Vilaine, and, worse, incarceration in preventive of a comrade from the CGT Valenciennes . We have to organize more and more necessary inter-union solidarity.

Other ads of the evening, that she blockade of refineries sparked applause from the audience. Especially as the economic blockades in many cities are now part of the repertoire of action, strategy driven by the call "It blocks all! "Fully sticking to the reality of the struggle.

There remains the question of the strike. Few interventions have demanded an incantatory call for a general strike 'directions' union, as it is clear that the strike "push-button" is not a possible scenario (or even desirable) ... and this, simply because it remains to convince at the base and on the ground to stop working for even a few hours!

However, for everyone, the strike is not a step that we can remove. It is simply to do as much as possible with the reality of the mobilization on our workplaces and articulate strike action and mass blockades of self-organization experiences.
