(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #283 - Youth: Coordinate, yes but how ? (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Wed, 16 May 2018 06:56:12 +0300

Faced with the selection and the other elitist measures closing even more the higher education to the popular classes, the end of the academic year is marked by an acceleration of the mobilization in several facs. ---- Despite the period of exams, high school and high school students continue to coordinate between institutions such as Paris or Rennes, distributing leaflets, organizing high school AG, filter dams, blocks. Support from students is always helpful in dealing with the difficulties of organizing, as long as it does not replace it. Many high school students will have no assignments when Parcoursup starts giving the results on May 22, the date of mobilization of the public service. ---- A student mobilization that is growing ! ---- Almost all the universities in Paris are now mobilized and coordinated among themselves. In response, facs were closed administratively, and the police expelled, wounded and arrested students, as in Nanterre and Tolbiac, the director having let her in. The " free commune of Tolbiac " (Paris-I) which voted for the occupation until the withdrawal of the ORE law allowed to gather in AG nearly 800 students, organizing workshops to make live this open university. In Saint-Denis (Paris-VIII), in addition to the occupation of an amphitheater to house exiles for three months, 1,000 people voted to block the college until April 20. And the Sorbonne was occupied by 400 people following the AG interfac, for the first time since 2006 !

It is in Toulouse that the movement was massified the earlier, because it is in the continuity of a fight against the merger of the University Jean-Jaurès (Mirail) with other facs Toulouse. The project was expected to result in degraded working conditions, job cuts for staff, higher tuition fees for students, increasingly opaque boards of directors, increased private interest, and valorization of " excellence " sectors and laboratories To the detriment of what does not meet the needs of the market economy. The strike was initiated from December by staff, supported by unions such as CGT Ferc-Sup, Sud Educ and FSU, and was joined by students. Several boards of directors have been invaded and the movement has begun to assert its opposition to both merger and selection. The AGs then began to grow and the mobilization hardened in early 2018. In early March, the GA student-staff voted the blocking of the Mirail campus, and the following MAs were massive, sometimes culminating at 2,000 people, and renewing the lock at each GA. The continuation or not of the blocking must be voted at the next GA, after the holidays. The threat of police intervention is in everyone's head. The local bourgeois media did everything to discredit the blockage and occupation of Mirail. This is why the mobilized have fought their way by invading the premises ofLa Dépêche du Midi to impose the publication of a non-modifiable press release.

For a democratic student coordination
In Lyon, as in Grenoble, while the students against the selection and the student unions struggling to get the mobilization started, the field work began to bear fruit, with 1400 students in Grenoble voting blocking buildings. This burst later comes also from the desire to fight against the repression and disgust following the media coverage of the fascist attack at the university of Montpellier. The extreme right reveals its true role in attacking the social movement, as in Strasbourg, Paris or Lille. The best answer to fafs, beyond the self-defense of our mobilizations, is to continue to expand our movement, to be ever more numerous and determined.

Faced with the repression, other sectors in struggle support us, as in Marseille, where the CGT port union says it will respond with a strike to any police or fascist aggression against the occupation of Saint Charles University !

Mobilization is struggling to coordinate nationally. Although the National Coordination of Struggle (CNL) or the National Student Coordination (CNE) have set dates for national mobilization, they are not free from reproach. The CNL operates without mandates, so without democratic control over the decisions that are made there. The CNE, it was initially controlled by activists of the UNEF who, instead of respecting the mandates of their AG, acted according to the instructions of their union, including being mandated by phantom AG, gathering only a handful of students whose goal is to give more voice to UNEF during the coordination. By increasing the difference of voice between small and large AG, these maneuvers have less weight. For us, libertarian communists,

As partial and holidays approached, in mid-April, nearly half of the schools were blocked, with massive AGs like in Rennes-II on April 16 with 4,000 students, of which more than 3,000 voted renewal of the block until April 30th. In faculties where highly-attended GAs are held, preventing the holding of examinations is possible. Convergence with staff and teachers is therefore important for students to get their year. The challenge is also to include students who have just entered the mobilization so that the occupations are alive, and that the actions outside the facs are widely followed, in order to support the railwaymen, teachers, hospital staff, employees on strike at Carrefour, in the air sector, or at the Post Office. The only way to win is to converge the mobilizations. It is a movement of magnitude that we need, a general strike and renewable that is not to invoke but to build methodically. The youth must be at the rendezvous, continue to organize ourselves self-management, convince more and more people to mobilize and go to meet the workers in struggle !
