(en) France, Alternative Libertaire press release: Goodyear: the media and the PS always the same side of the baton (fr) [machine translation]

Date Wed, 13 Mar 2013 15:31:31 +0200

The ritual is known: when the oppressed revolt, and they are labeled as "extremist" "violent" and are patronized by journalists. The rogue bosses, cops ripoux, men or women corrupt politicians are not entitled to the same treatment media, far from it!
March 7, took place a manifestation of employee-es the Goodyear plant in Amiens corporate headquarters in Rueil-Malmaison, where stood a central works council on the future of 1,173 jobs concerned. It is now nearly six years that these employees live under the threat of closure of the site, buffeted by promises of recovery. Pressure on employment, deterioration of working conditions, stress, are their daily lot. ---- The event quickly turned into a confrontation with the police who gave the tonfa, flash-ball and tear gas. Ensued one media outcry against trade unionists from the factory. Many journalists showed their contempt class.

The same evening on RTL, the hilarious Marc-Olivier Fogiel, Mickaël Wamen summoned, the CGT "condemn" violence. Shortly before it was Pascale Clark who thrashed France Inter http://www.acrimed.org/article4003.html, describing the behavior of workers 'warlike'. This servile attitude is reminiscent of David Pujadas http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56WjT1mqYvs, which recalled the law Xavier Mathieu, militant CGT Continental plant in its newscast.

Yet anger is legitimate Goodyear. As is legitimate anger of thousands of people laid off each month, while corporate profits remain windfall . Violence is that these patterns of their shareholders who throw people into poverty after enjoying their work until the end. Violence is the police always there to defend the rich and the justice always there to condemn the rebels. This violence is the violence of capitalism.

What does the "socialist" government response to this violence? Nothing more, nothing less than Sarkozy and his clique. Goodyear, ArcelorMittal, Sanofi, PSA, Virgin: the strategy is the same. We made a little fuss in front of cameras for government communications then soaped the plank for employee-'re fighting, and if they persist, they send the CRS, and dragging unionists justice

Following the demonstration on March 7, the government's response was to condemn the workers and the workers of Goodyear. On RMC and BFM-TV, the secretary of the ruling Harlem Désir, said in a tone stuffy "understand" their reaction, but "condemn violence". Worst first cop of France, Manuel Valls said, between two strokes chin, that justice would be entered .

The workers and workers of Goodyear are right! Against redundancies and arbitrary employer:
veto Workers;
blocking shareholder dividends
requisition / self sustainable sites
