(en) France, Alternative Libertair: "Shock competitiveness" - when the employers are writing the government program (fr) [machine translation]

Date Thu, 08 Nov 2012 17:07:11 +0200

With the measures announced Tuesday, November 6 by Jean-Marc Ayrault under the name "National Pact for growth, competitiveness and employment", the collusion between the government and the capitalist puppet appears clearer than ever. These are workers, women workers, retirees, young people will pay the piper. No wonder that the UMP and the MEDEF welcome this loud and clear: "The corset encloses the company will be released," a boastful Laurence Parisot, president of MEDEF. ---- And there are actually for the capitalists to rejoice as they will benefit from tax breaks of $ 20 billion per year! These gifts will be offset by a decline in public spending (less welfare, less public services) and price increases through the increase of VAT: the VAT rate increased from 19.6% is 20%, the intermediate rate of 7% to 10%. However, VAT is the most unfair tax because it affects the same way the poorest and the richest.

These measurements are made, if you listen to the government to restore the sacrosanct "competitiveness" and to "ensure" continuity of employment for the greater interest of the workers and the workers themselves. This policy is in line with that of previous governments, which are in no case have prevented layoffs, outsourcing and social misery. In reality, it is simply to restore the profits of capitalists blunted by the crisis at the expense of those who produce wealth: the workers.

So what will be implemented by the government allegedly left is nothing but a vast movement of redistribution of wealth in favor of those who already have the most: the capitalists. Faced with this type of criminal policy which is already considerable damage in other countries (Greece, Spain), which overwrites the wealthy people, we can only rely on ourselves: everywhere in businesses, neighborhoods , places of study, let us unite to build the strength and solidarity. Stand the prospect of change and self-managed capitalist society.
