(en) France, Organisation Communiste Libertarie - Mobilization of 5 March - Competitiveness, flexibility ... stop the capitalist offensive. Now! OCL Reims (fr) [machine translation]
Tue, 12 Mar 2013 12:44:20 +0200
"There is indeed a class war, but it's my class, the rich class that makes war and we
win."[*] ---- [*] Warren Buffett, billionaire capitalist, fourth fortune in the world,
November 26, 2006, New York Times ---- Jan 11, 2013. Following a process worthy of
Guignol shows media apparatchiks of three minority unions dare to affix their signatures
to an "agreement" with the employers called "job security". 6 March 2013. parliamentary
majority, godillot good is about to transcribe the text in stone laws, with instructions
imperative to take up any point to meet the requirements of the chieftain and MEDEF rating
agencies that capitalism has erected in economies such as judges States. March 5, 2013 .
BiberonnÃs by 40 years of structural crisis of capitalism, mesmerized by repeated
financial crises since 2008, beaten by the new dogmas debt and competitiveness, fooled by
a new government employees in France are FINALLY called to action by the unions ...
In contrast to any "job security" bill in parliamentary debate tomorrow aims to enhance
the mobility and flexibility of employees - in short, their precarious - and to legalize
blackmail employers to use - the boss of Renault golds already heard. The only thing that
is truly guaranteed by this agreement is greater freedom given to employers to dismiss.
This text is a step in the deconstruction of labor law. Nothing else. This labor law, even
if it is the legitimation of state power relations within the production system should not
be used as an adjustment variable.
This text once voted the bosses have any leeway, for example, and always in the name of
"job protection" impose wage cuts for workers earning more than â 1,300 net per month -
barely more than a minimum wage - without having to guarantee the absence of layoffs two
years later ... It would be offered to require their employees geographical mobility
across the country, and the privilege to dismiss for the simple reason that staff refuse
this change ... A boss might even happen to dismiss a "Plan for the Protection of
Employment" - this beautiful Newspeak euphemism for capitalism! Opportunities for
employees to challenge a dismissal would be made more difficult. Moreover, the right to
appeal to the Labour Court would also be launched, including a limitation period for
unfair dismissal reduced to 2 years.
Increasing numbers of layoffs
In winter 2012-13, it happens almost not a day that finds the multiplication layoff plans,
plans job cuts or closure of sites. The automotive industry, such as metallurgy,
industrial sectors at the forefront of the restructuring of capitalism appear
restructuring plans among the heaviest: 11 000 job losses at Peugeot PSA, with the closure
of the historic factory of Aulnay, 7500 deletions Renault-Nissan, and how many hundreds or
thousands of jobs at risk in outsourcing? This winter employment is still the threat of
liquidation of the Goodyear plant in Amiens where workers have been struggling for 5
years. But above add companies whose projects destroying jobs have the luxury of being
publicized: Arcelor-Mittal, Sanofi, Virgin, Candia, Soft, Alcatel-Lucent, Petroplus, etc..
What's less surprising when reviewing workers despised resort to the threat to blow up
their tool for working with gas cylinders to be finally heard? Public service and public
enterprises are not spared, with 150,000 jobs lost last 3 years, the Socialist Party
government pursuing the same political project than its predecessors right.
Unemployment or poverty or barbarism of exploitation!
Without even the benefit of this "agreement" may soon be made ââlegislation, the
steamroller spares no sector employers in the project to enhance the increasingly
impoverished capital and still more work.
's army reserve of unemployed workers already 5 million people in its ranks, magnified a
thousand each day, while in the factories, on assembly lines, in offices, on construction
sites everywhere, work organization , productivity gains are always against the workers.
"Down with infernal cadences" is a slogan of the day. Too often, this distress leads to
suicide of employees at the place of their exploitation. You get to see now unemployed
themselves on fire. Here capitalism. Here is the real face of a society where apathy
social movement can only consider the benefit of a minority. was dying too often expect to
work PÃle Emploi, you die too often have too much work to grind. Admittedly we still have
the freedom to die of misery in the street.
Against the blackmail of capital, do not rely on our own strength.
To build an autonomous social movement!
To listen to the capitalists and their lackeys in politics, too many paper pushers who
populate the media or among the yellow unions, we should accept without flinching, to
"save jobs," the increasing use of partial unemployment, lives broken by layoffs, further
deterioration of working conditions, wages down, retreats of misery, of social trimmed.
And even say thank you when all allowances due are paid, and having the kindness to
integrate all these reactionary discourse on "welfare" and "immigrants." That's blackmail
of capital, and government propagandists "dialogue social "or" German model "their"
competitiveness agreements "and their" plans job security " . This is what we see in their
"agreements" January 11!
Finally - it was time - trade unions call on all those who prefer their mates to grief
profit rate of capital, to strike, to protest. " He would not have had to wait for their call!
The Socialist Party has once again shown as installed in power, he had no project to show
good manager, reforming the service of capital against the interests of his constituents.
Now that the orphans were left once again became aware of this social function of PS, the
more we are, the better it will be - of course.
The 5th of March, all together in the street, however, can not be anything but a step in
the construction of a social movement independent, strong mobilization of all its places
of living and working in all fields of control options, in an attempt to converge with the
comrades already in combat, PSA Peugeot-like Virgin or Notre-Dame-des-Landes.
Built around power relations. Expect nothing powers up. Never delegate its struggles. Take
rather than wait.
Spring is the best season for large social explosions!
