Build the foundation of future struggles autonomy

The interlude electoral dissipated, the offensive against the lives of workers and the unemployed will be able to continue with more bitterness. The expected report of the Court of Auditors, the Socialists say fear, they will begin the austerity they are called to carry on the theme of "return to growth". And already the tone. After Holland during the presidential campaign, it is now the turn of Ayrault re-clarify things: "It will be more difficult than expected, everyone should make an effort." We know reality behind the figure of the "man in the street" ...

Of course, part of the electoral clientele receive a few crumbs he agreed to circulate in the circumstances. It announces the return very partial to retire at age 60 and a "reasonable" increase in the minimum wage. In the same tone is trumpeted job creation and deletion of certain administrative provisions in the education sector, such as the renewal and development of precarious jobs, etc. .. In short, the old recipes from the left at the beginning of the mandate, in total, will not cost much. However they offer him the benefit certify that this time it is not the middle class and the classes will be affected but "rather large businesses and households higher ..."

Yes, but here, the workers, they have not waited for the return of the Socialists business to undergo a new explosion of unemployment associated with multiple redundancy plans in progress. In recent months, nearly 150 boxes closures have followed without interruption. And this is only the beginning, the worst is yet to come. Thousands of job cuts ahead already in many sectors of production and services: automobile, steel, transport, food, retail, etc.. Before the nearly three million officially unemployed and the decline for years, the level of wages, the political will displayed during the presidential under the theme of "re-industrialization" does grugera person. It is a vague rehash stirred in a period where workers without power / knowledge to create real balance of forces on the ground still look for the moment to the state. How long will it last, there is the question ...

Lucid, a union site Aulnay threatened Peugeot recently stated: "Arnaud Montebourg did not give the impression of having really intend to put a spoke in the wheel of Peugeot". And for good reason ... As a remedy, it will first be to ensure the profit rate of industrial groups who make the law, including organizing the labor market reform demanded by the European employers. Because despite what they suggest, the Socialists will indeed commitments made to the European Commission. Employers know and enjoy the context for further pressure on wages. Thus, in response to the closure of boxes, Natixis bank already offers to transfer the payment of the famous "charges" corporate taxpayers through increased CSG ... It is therefore in this light that one must understand the recent announcements of the Minister of accents colbertistes "Productive Recovery": repatriation of call centers. While at first glance the proposal does not pack the employers, it is no objection from the time the State offers a guarantee of more flexible working. In this case, rotate the trays 7/7 and 24h/24 ... Already a union adds: "If employers are willing to pay more for Sunday work, why not, everything is negotiable ..."

Illuminating on another folder that covers this period in the return of the "made in France", one of SeaFrance. Subject of numerous dealings with the PS during the presidential campaign, the project will finally see Scop day under the control of Eurotunnel Group. And already now, the CEO sets the tone: "The Scop is quite understood that the ships could be made in terms of productivity equivalent to competition (...) I think that it will not the coefficient of SeaFrance which will not allow the company to survive. " Translation: wages and working conditions will be seriously revised downwards, and again, we can count on a union leadership that has proven itself to carry out the operation ...

And now? The crisis is global and no longer focuses exclusively in the heart of the old historical centers of capitalism, those in the euro zone and the United States. Now, the downturn hit in the same way that new regions held a dynamic role in the process of capital accumulation: India, China, Brazil. The times ahead will be no doubt those tensions and social and political confrontations. In response, the struggles grow everywhere either in Spain or Greece in Quebec; necessarily different in their content, forms, and their goals, but they all share, for the time being, the inability to stop the march capital into chaos. This is the case in France, where since 1995 workers have consistently given the conduct of struggles in the hands of unions with the success that we know.

In times to come, one of the issues crucial to the outcome of the struggle between classes is the ability of workers in particular and the proletariat in general to organize, lead and control their own struggles. For this, new forms of doing and living the struggles yet to be invented. Whether from basic trade union sections can still be used to support, and beyond, of course, in wide spaces collective scale of a city, neighborhood, region. .. In an extremely marginal attempts embryonic grassroots organization and self emerged in recent conflicts, natural plants that have neutralized without too much difficulty. As the crisis will intensify, the balance of power could be reversed, it is in all cases why we must move.
