(en) France, Alternative Libertaire #224 - Unemployment Gard organize solidarity (fr) [machine translation]

Date Thu, 14 Feb 2013 10:52:45 +0200

At the initiative of Solidarity, a protest against unemployment took place on December 15 in Nimes. Used mobilization unit, it is also a prerequisite for the organization of practical solidarity. ---- Having seen a context of class struggle lethargic, Partners Gard made the proposal in mid-October, all the forces of social movement Gard, organize a protest against unemployment, insecurity, social exclusion and redundancies. ---- It is, first of all, to break the gravity of a social truce declared by the union bureaucracies since the advent of government in Holland meaning that change - true - only come mobilization-operated are themselves. It is, then, to give local echo in the national demonstration of the unemployed in Paris December 1, in a department that has an unemployment rate of 15%.

Meeting unitary unit meeting this demonstration initiative takes shape over the weeks. The list of participants is growing (CNT, Attac, The Indignant-es, postcode, anti-capitalist Left, Alternative, Left Party, FA, Alternative libertarian Collective unemployed Cévennes ...). Broadcasts and leaflets collages multiply. We target in priority to agencies Pôle Emploi and neighborhoods.

Create dynamic autonomous ...

Saturday, December 15, 2012, at 14h, we are between 200 and 300, to walk under a bright sun, the streets of the city's less fortunate Nîmes. The slogan of the banner at the top of unit train is explicit: "Organize solidarity and resistance." Generally positive despite the low mobilization of the inhabitants and residents of neighborhoods.

This event will also have been a real challenge: to live and build an initiative deliberately boycotted by large traditional organizations of the social landscape Gard namely UD CGT and the PCF, 50 to 70% of usual militant forces in demonstrations in Nîmes or Ales. This is important: it stresses the importance of providing autonomous initiatives without relying systematically calendar activist "decision makers" social movement.

Practical solidarity

In this process, a collective unit will soon be created. Issues of the right to decent housing and evictions of tenants will likely be among our priorities. Requisitions may emerge. In Ales, a city where 500 people were in trouble housing, a group already working on creating a welcoming place for families in precarious situations. The issue of redundancy plans and actively support employee-'re struggling with a topical on this subject in many factories Gard (Jalatte, Salins du Midi, among others), will be another focus of mobilization.

A final objective could be, finally, the project of creating a House of the People (on the model of Italian social centers or experience in the late 1990s to Paris House sets). The House of the People, Self social center, a place of convergence activist and open to the neighborhood, will offer rooms for associations, unions with legal hotlines, a concert hall, the development of literacy and academic support , a popular canteen, etc.. In a word, a true alternative project to build and especially refined.
