(en) France, Union Communiste Libertaire AL #298 - An anchor of the movement against climate change (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

The global march of 20 September has seen unprecedented mobilization. This is a sustainable turning point in environmental struggles. The public authorities, not being able to challenge capitalism, can do nothing but embellish the chorus of technological solutions, and send the CRS. ---- The global march of 20 September 2019 against climate change was an unprecedented event, with an organized mobilization at the international level. This is a sustainable turning point in environmental struggles. As for him, the government played thoroughly the repression map and sought to hinder the march organized on Saturday, September 21 in Paris. Despite this and some other difficulties, the convergence of struggles is on the way. Among the novelties of this mobilization, it should be noted the participation of unions in the mobilization of Friday [1], including teachers who support the youth. Saturday is a mixture of groups between yellow vests, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), protest against pension reform. This famous " convergence of struggles "is being realized. Retreats, climate, end of the month same fight ! Yellow, green vests ... organizations, citizens ...

Of course, the state looses its cops to divide and sow disorder among the organized people, opposing the " bad " black blocks to " nice " pacifists .... This arbitrary state is there to try to mask the legitimate claims and leave room for the speeches of experts. These experts in ecology are ubiquitous on the state media. Saturday 21 September on France Inter (economic issue) an " expert " of Credit Agricole states that the free and healthy competition will automatically resolve the ecological problems. The next day on France Culture, we talk about the expertise of the IPCC, a technological breakthrough, the merits of nuclear power plants, and the fact that the solution is not political but technical.

Divergence of tactics
But the government's divisive maneuvers only work partially. We can not read these articles denouncing three types " hooded " that caused the wrath of 7,500 cops. The cops were not there by chance. Criticizing the strategies of others creates a lot of inaction and undermines our solidarities. A common axis of struggle has been found on an ecological and social basis. It remains to accept the diversity of tactics, citizen actions, non-violent actions, or not ...

The different components of the movement need once again to sit down at the table to build together an effective collective action, lasting, neglecting the action of anyone.
