Removal of social contributions, dismantling of the Labor Code, pension reform: the Macron government is there to complete the destruction of the social rights conquered by the workers. So let's learn the lessons of the past struggles and push for an extended general strike to block the economy. ---- 40 years of austerity ---- Confronted with a weak growth that does not exclude profits important for the employers, the governments of right and left (except the interlude 1981/82) faithfully apply the program of the bourgeoisie: austerity. It is the name given to the policies which aim to take from the workers the social and trade union gains struck by the struggles since the Liberation. ---- This necessarily unpopular policy has provoked the quasi-automatic right / left alternation, voters putting their hopes in the promises of change. The repeated disappointment ends up weakening the whole political system: rise of abstention, vote Le Pen ... the Fifth Republic is a field of ruins. If the wealthiest have benefited from the period, they are now worried that popular anger is no longer channeled into the ballot box. The most enlightened strategists of the bourgeoisie then invented Macron. Neither right, nor left, nor even the center: modern !

Macron, the joker of the bourgeoisie

Elected with the relative success that is known, Macron is mandated to contain social explosions and complete the destruction of social gains. Indeed, if resistance, strike days, and monsters were not enough to push back governments, they have also slowed down the implementation of ultra-liberal policies. From this point of view, France is late, it is a matter of finishing it ! The abolition of social contributions announces the death of solidarity protections ; the decay of public education announces the victory of private education from primary to university ; the destruction of the Labor Code and the right to organize; the reform of pensions expected for January 2018 announces the worst ... And the introduction of the measures of the state of emergency in the banal law announces the aggravation of the repression against trade unionists, militant ecologists, solidarity with the migrant -es

Macron is already collapsing in the polls and the promising new transparent policy becomes the secret construction of prescriptions ! Never has the term "social re-entry" been so true. Let's ensure the success of the meeting on August 30 against the Summer University of Medef and the day of strike of September 12.

But let us learn the lessons of past struggles. The unions that are still fighting prepare us for three days of mobilizations scattered in September. Better than nothing but insufficient to win. Even if it means losing three days of salary, it is a three-day call for a general strike that unions and employees must build. Three days of blocking the economy, industrial zones and neighborhoods, high schools and faculties. Then we will be in a better position to decide the consequences on the morning of the fourth day and to increase the forces of the anti-capitalist rupture !
