(en) France, Coordination Groups Anarchites CGA IAL 93 - Balance of the first month of socialist governance (fr) [machine translation]
Mon, 24 Dec 2012 13:33:18 +0200
At the outset it should be noted that we do not expect major changes, let alone miracles.
-- Credited to "socialist" just a few little things that were announced during the
presidential campaign: the end of the exemption on Overtime, increased allowance for
school, light - very light - boost the minimum wage and some changes /-reforms from the
Department of "Justice". ---- Rigor to visit ---- Besides that, we were invited es to
tighten our belt, but we were already doing before. We can say that we are led to es. ---
Jean-Marc Ayrault strives to lead the recovery of our country, "in justice," he wanted to
tell us. ---- From the beginning of the mandate, it is true, the report of the Court of
Auditors presented by Didier Migaud, proved the most alarmist. ---- 33 billion savings or
additional tax revenue, is the challenge that has set social democracy to redress the
country, hoping for a 1% growth. But now, the growth would be close to zero as a ...
Rigor "left", twin sister of the severity of right, that the choice is offered.
The retreats tax
The Socialists had announced changes to tax scales, with higher taxation on high incomes
of the rich and big business ...
But the first warning shot of some pattern of start-up, grouped under the label of
"pigeons", Bercy has declined. The new regime of taxation of capital gains will be
arranged for entrepreneurs who are separated from their company.
Pierre Moscovici is committed to change the taxation of capital gains on disposal of
businesses in the case of people who have created their company. " What we want to tax, is
the pension, no risk , "is he justified.
And to those who are surprised by this retreat in the countryside, he argued that the left
" was for ten years in opposition ... "and so she" did not hand over the statistical
apparatus State . '
Education "National" in the service of Capital?
Vincent Peillon, we just want to bring confess education institutions and businesses from
the 6 th . He wants to strengthen the links between schools and businesses ... Vincent
Peillon prepares a plan to " create real career information and guidance, to discover the
company and trades in the sixth, and that to the university . "
Minister wants companies " to mobilize more by raising awareness in their business
classes so that young people are better informed about the opportunities . "
It defines Education, a primary task " ... to prepare young people for employment. "
The left wants to offer food to a youth Employers pre-formatted and adapted to the world
In a bit ironic, we could advise the Minister heretofore, to teach "the benefits of wage"
Meanwhile the Interior
Manuel Valls abandoned project of receipt in case of passport control, burying a promise
of the candidate Holland.
As a result, the Minister of the Interior gave a speech on the urgent need to restore the
link between police and population .
Of the voting rights of foreigners, Manuel Valls did not consider this claim to be fairly
" strong in French society . " The President recently told (and private) will keep this
promise own "to cross to France a cultural stage irreversible." But his friends do not
seem to want to venture to mention any timetable.
Roma expelled with "firmness and humanism"
Since the beginning of August, the management of " file " Roma show much more strength
than humanism. The dismantling of the camps, deportation undertaken by the police about 7
000 Roma on a population of 15 000, this is a human management akin to that previous
governments had accustomed us.
As humanism, rather we have a political rhetoric intended to deceive; indeed, it is the
firm that outweighs, confirming a large part of public opinion favorable to the expulsions
Closures - layoffs - unemployment
Business closures, some at the onset of the presidential election results known, returned
to cruising speed. And what do you Arnaud Montebourg could do? Nothing, of course.
During the campaign, we would see what we would see! Well, we have seen. Nothingness.
At Sanofi , a plan to reorganize the company expects about 900 layoffs by 2015 and, we are
told, to cope with the loss of patents on drugs very profitable .
The company can boast of huge profits that run into billions of euros. But will lay still
as it hopes to increase its profit margins.
And Montebourg , Minister of Relief productive , what can he expect him? A new (?) Down
the direction he says. As if the direction had already started to decline ...
At ArcelorMittal, the "tussle" have begun between the government and the steel group on
the future of Florange, threatened with closure. This is what this minister said the
group's employees ... a bit wary.
We know that the negotiations between the group's chairman, Lakshmi Mittal , Chairman and
François Holland head-to-head at the Elysee, do nothing. The steelmaker's decision has not
changed. But ... in doing so, social democracy proves it can be found in the position to
"manage" capitalism as it can, without intentions to eradicate it.
Unionists received by A. Montebourg said they were " disappointed ", even if the principle
of law raised by the Minister, namely" organize the recovery through the courts a viable
industrial site , "could provide some illusions CFDT. As for the CGT and FO, the
nationalization of the factory would be the solution, which does not seem to be considered
by the Government.
The last but not the least, Montebourg went to the Council of Ministers Renault Zoe
electric pledge its support for the electric car ...
PSA Peugeot Citroën side, however, is the catastrophe. The manufacturer prepares to remove
8 000 jobs in France, the Aulnay plant closing and downsizing in Rennes.
Frédéric Saint-Geours , managing director of brands and board member, number two PSA,
reported on the group's strategy, while the Paris Motor Show is open to the public
Saturday, September 29 in Paris.
He justifies the choice of the group not throwing cars at low cost.
Asked about a possible tripartite negotiations involving the government, he suggested that
the process of social do not provide.
He said that the alliance with General Motors does not increase its stake in PSA.
For their part, employees of the PSA Aulnay and those of Ford Blanquefort, near Bordeaux,
have raised their voices loudly in late September at the public opening of the Salon de
l'Automobile in Paris Arnaud Montebourg which gave up to go, when there was announced. The
Minister of productive recovery, was renamed for the occasion, "Minister unproductive" by
protesters who waited in vain .
Europe liberal or social democratic same fight ...
The European fiscal treaty, much maligned by the Socialists before the presidential
election is not over today many critics (except at the margin) and it is sure to be voted
by the right and left together in Parliament.
The revival of growth, the absence of the "golden rule", while this is only a very poor
concessions to the French Socialists, but in the end nothing really substantial, the
evidence is that the vote on the right text!
On all sensitive issues, the balance is negative. But could it be otherwise, when the new
rulers agreed to lead the country without modifying any of the basic rules that govern our
The exploitation of man by man, the wage, the market and capitalism as impassable
horizons, the democratic system padlocked any hint of change in depth etc..
Thus, even before the review, and as always, activists anarchists were not (and are) no
illusion about the relevance, validity, or even the legitimacy of the electoral system and
We have not been surprised by the weak government deal with all the crap that capitalism
Whether liberal or ultra although a little soft, capitalism is not a system call
"humanist". It puts the profits of business owners and those financiers over all other
The rulers are in his service, accompanied by measures to "social" bad beats perpetrated
against employee-es and the "masses."
Socialists spend their time painting in pink that their predecessors had painted blue. But
if the wall color change "now", the walls of our prisons are well up.
