(en) France, Union Communiste Libertaire AL #297 - Red and Black Summer Meetings 2019: Au vert avec l'UCL (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Fri, 4 Oct 2019 09:14:58 +0300

"I am an interim storekeeper in a medium-sized box in the suburbs of Tours. I am 29 years old, I have no children: in short, I have a lot of free time that I spend in particular to campaign within the group UCL Tours. I contacted the CGT section of the box, I was told that without a stable work contract, I would not be interested in exposing myself, because the bosses' crackdown is boasting. What can I do ?" ---- This little speech and six others of the same cask, fictitious but reflecting the proletariat in its diversity, served as a basis for reflections in small groups, during a workshop organized by the Labor Commission of UCL. It was for each group to think about ways of activism in wage situations where unionism is not obvious (precariat, self-entrepreneurship, SMEs ...). The form, playful and interactive, was much appreciated.

It was the same for the training organized by the Anti-Patriarchate Commission on the different currents of feminism, in the form of a role play allowing about fifty participants, divided into teams, to become familiar with the different speeches. , before a critical debate.

The techniques of popular education are increasingly finding their place in the Red and Black Summer Days, which this year have welcomed a hundred people - a lower number than last year, which is not the case. surprising just one month after the June AL-CGA joint congress, where 200 delegates converged.

Like last year, it was the beautiful hamlet of Bécours that hosted this self-managed event, open to UCL activists and to subscribers and Friends of Alternative Libertaire . Meeting time, training and conviviality resolutely non-decision-making, these Red and Black Summer Days are nevertheless an important milestone in the life of the organization.

The program was full. Each day was held in parallel 2 or 3 appointments in the morning, as well as a plenary session and an AG of self-management of the stay. Training (drafting of a leaflet, history of the French libertarian movement since May 68, collective action in demos ...), conferences ("The economic crisis that comes", the situation in Palestine, by Pierre Stambul), debates ("Libertarian municipalism, a possible strategy in the affected territories ?", A review and outlook of the website Reportsdeforce.fr, a brainstorm around the logo proposals for UCL), workshops ("For a good use militant social networks », Operation of the monthly AL...), book presentations in the presence of the authors (Laelia Véron, Marc Faysse, Benoît Bohy-Bunel). In plenary session were discussed, among others, the movement of yellow vests, political issues of the return (pensions, unemployment insurance, privatization of ADP, universal national service ...) and "risk of collapse and revolutionary project." A "special anti-patriarchy" day was set at the beginning of the week, and a festive evening the day before the half-day off. See you next year, for the red and black summer days 2020 !
