(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL Septembre - compulsory civic service: regimentation and exploitation (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Sun, 25 Sep 2016 10:42:11 +0300

An amendment to the bill "equality and citizenship" passed by the National Assembly could increase the vulnerability of young people. It plans to introduce a compulsory civic service of nine months, between 18 and 25, which would consist of three-month government propaganda followed by a compulsory period of work paid below the poverty line. ---- Neither vacation or summer job, but three months forced into "Days defense and citizenship." It is expected that the first phase of compulsory civic service is going from 1 July to 1 October of the year of 18. Now this is a crucial period, between the end of school and the beginning of the upper and / or wage labor studies. ---- During the three months of "republican classes" during which the "symbols of the nation" and the "fundamentals of the Republic" will be praised, going one speak of the bombing by France in Syria? Will we speak of the state of emergency that eliminates judicial supervision to strengthen the power of government to better suppress and stifle social protest? Will we talk about police violence against demonstrators and protesters opposed es to work law or committed against his people and inhabitants of neighborhoods, including the racist murder of Adama Traoré in July in Beaumont-sur- Oise is a terrible illustration? Will we talk about the sexism of the political class? No, it will be a speech about "commitment" and "inclusion" while all this rhymes with indoctrination and exploitation.

24 to 48 hours per week paid 470 euros per month

Then we do the studies, whether one is unemployed or work, six months will be taxed precarious youth. This period will be a time of "national interest missions" in associations, utilities, enterprises of the social economy. This means having to work without salary protection (unemployment, retirement ...), 24 to 48 hours a week and paid 470 euros per month, or about half the poverty line in France. During these six months, the interruption of studies or employment will be imposed. The poorest will find in even more precarious es. This compulsory civic service serves the interests of employers in forming and providing a docile and disposable labor.

Moreover, the bill "equality and citizenship" also provides a "citizens' reserve" in sectors such as the army, the police, local authorities or national education. This reserve can be used by the government in an emergency. With no doubt, it will be requisitioned to break strikes. This "citizens' reserve" under the pretext of national interest is a tool against the social movement.

As early as March last youth had worked intensively against the labor law, the fight must be intensified against all this legislative arsenal fostering exploitation and precariousness. In early July, a petition was launched against compulsory civic service, collecting thousands of signatures. General meetings will allow us to continue to decide together to protest, to block, to hold and to strike against the labor law and the compulsory civic service!
