(en) Spain, Interview with Social Student Front and Zaragoza (FES) (ca) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 15 Dec 2012 19:46:08 +0200

"It is urgent opposition to the projects of privatization and commercialization of education" ---- What is the difference you FES and other student groups? ---- The Social and Student Front is an organization of students and young working-class aspiration and libertarian socialist politico. What sets us apart from other student groups is a proposal for direct action and self-student organization, contrary to mentoring and class collaborationist reinforces bourgeois institutions, seeking emancipation from students on their own. ---- What is the status of the student movement? How do you think should be directed and what tasks lie ahead? ---- Currently the student movement is in a phase of building structures in assemblies, something visible in many Spanish cities. We believe that the way forward is to encourage proliferation, settlement and coordination of these structures, so that they become tools of struggle and organization for the student body.

For homework, we consider it urgent opposition to privatization projects and commercialization of education, either through reforms such as those proposed by the current and previous government and by European plans as Bologna or Strategy 2015 . We think that this opposition should be done, since the student movement without leaving aside the class perspective, considering that these reforms are clear benefit current operating model and, at the same time, building a popular education alternative, this is managed and to serve the interests of working people.

- Your organization works in Zaragoza, do you have contact with other similar groups or expandiros expect in the future?

We are currently in contact with a few groups from the rest of the Spanish state, with which we are trying to accomplish building a federation focused on building a social student organization and as we've driven in Zaragoza, we consider it necessary in these moments creating an organization of this kind in the entire state. We would like to seize the opportunity to offer us invite any group interested in this federal process to contact us through our e feszgz@riseup.net

- What is your reading of the draft education reform?

We recently conducted an analysis, available on our website, the latest draft of the Law for the Improvement of Education (LOMCE) announced by the ministry of education and we can say that we have a new reactionary reform focused on the privatization of education the detriment of the quality of public education, especially in cultural, religious indoctrination that puts the same level as, for example, to philosophy and which is in line with the construction of a model based on the work farm precarious, temporary and controller, rather than to the human, truly scientific or professional.

- Education is a way out of this crisis, as some feathers usually defend the power bloc?

There are some traps in such statements. Currently, from the institutions and, in particular, from the European Space for Higher Education, we are seeing is promoting a model that aims to make education, not the law should be, but in a business, something they achieve various ways: by increasing rates, competition between schools and universities, the share of corporate interests in the governing bodies of teaching, scholarship-loan facilities or provide interns to companies (which in practice skilled labor is very cheap for them). In short, private capital economically benefit from public education, while at the same time this teaching is dedicated to educating people to meet the interests of that private capital. This speech, which are terms like "knowledge society", "lifelong learning" or "employability" is that, from power, is being promoted for some years.

We believe, on the contrary, that the solution to the crisis of capitalism is only possible ending capitalism. And in this task if that education can play an important role. Conquering education, just as they can conquer a factory, to focus it towards the development of a new economic paradigm, towards the construction of libertarian socialism and to the triumph of the working class, is how we can turn it into an actual output to the crisis .

- What is your relationship with the labor movement?

We understand the students, mostly as the training sector of the working class. Training is another phase of the production process, which currently ensures the reproduction of the system itself. That is why we believe that the student struggle and the workers' struggle must go hand in hand.

The main link between the student and the worker can find in the precarious young. That is why we are now beginning to develop work in the area of ââjob insecurity especially youth suffering of the working class, attacked by high unemployment and the devaluation of their working conditions through proliferation and pseudocontratos microcontratos. Task that we carry out in collaboration with formations of revolutionary syndicalism.
