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

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

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