(en) France, Alternative Libertaire: Tract AL - Extend and generalize the strike (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 23 Apr 2018 10:01:18 +0300

To stop the breakage of the public services, to block the liberal offensive, to get rid of precariousness and misery it is possible. The general strike is the only way to win today and to repair the defeats of the past years. And to prepare a future free from the rules of capitalism. ---- It is now necessary to accelerate ---- It is with demonstrations with no tomorrow that we lost in 2010, 2016 or 2017 despite beautiful mobilizations. It is with the extended and renewable strike that we will win. Capitalism has reached a stage of savagery where more than one crumb seems negotiable: then we will take all the cake ! The magnificent effort already made by the railway workers, the courage of the students facing unparalleled police violence, the mobilization at Air France, the successful days in the public service and in particular in health can not be ruined.

AG of cities and collectives
The renewed strike, voted in AG of strikers, coordinated at the branch and local level remains the most effective way for workers to maintain control of their strike. The inter-union and inter-professional associations in the cities are also bodies which allow the extension of the movement, the mutual solidarity, the mutual aid between employees in struggle. And then all groups of users, local collectives that arise and support mobilizations can also bring a plus to comfort the strikers. Activists of Libertarian Alternative will not neglect any space useful for the extension of the strike.

The strike remains at the center of the challenge of capitalism by stopping the production and circulation of goods, destroying the hope of shareholder appreciation. But other actions are also possible to block the operation of the machine and here also the activists of our organization are available.

The strike, school of communism
Democracy, in the construction of the general strike movement and generalized social subversion, is not a little more than prettier. True democracy, the control of the movement by the strikers themselves, voting in regular GA is the guarantee that the movement is not betrayed by any "leader" whatsoever. But it is also the practical exercise of direct democracy that we build in the perspective of a society free from the demands of private ownership of the means of production and the return on capital.

We are not only struggling to better distribute wealth, but to abolish the very possibility that some accumulate through the work of others. The authoritarian-led strike is the school of authoritarian socialism. The strike, animated by everyone, is the school of self-management communism.
