IT'S TIME TO NEXT! Strengthening our organization. Defending our rights! ---- The week that followed the announcement of the increase in bus fares in Porto Alegre was marked by a popular reaction is unprecedented times. After years of protests against the abusive increases that were just small demonstrations of outrage with little or no repercussions still of great importance, thankfully things started to take a novocontorno since early this year. Far from being virtual demonstrations, this reaction is frutode hard work of countless comrades, where we have contributed our modest contribution. ---- Upon resumption the constitution Block Fight for Public Transport, organizational space that spurred the fights over the last year, but by numerous factors dissolved amid various disputes, the movement has managed to accumulate a maturity odd forces in a plural organizational space.

The need for a larger unit, with the establishment, implementation cobrançae agreements, secured the permanence Block, streamlining actions and leveraging an important unit that developed with road workers in struggle against the bosses and the corrupt bureaucracy of their union.

We had important moments along the road workers. Shoulder to shoulder with some garages locked this worthy comrades category, an act of class solidarity that was reciprocated ready in our mobilizations, when it was a clear manifestation of the class struggle in support. A drive around the block, so it was something beyond streamline the relationship with numerous student organizations and groupings, forged this important unit with / the workers / the industry, an unprecedented achievement not only in the struggles against rising Pass and the free pass student and unemployed, but for the whole of social struggles in our city and state. In practice, we demonstrate the principle of class solidarity and that can accumulate and advance against our enemies when unify and coordinate the fights.

Beyond the Block, our activists was also involved in the joint space of another important organization, the Autonomous Front (FA). Organizing mates / the non-partisan and from / the most distinctive aspects of libertarian, AF was an important area to ensure greater organicity this sector coherence and charge ahead to agreements made in conjunction with other forces.

A drive around the block, so it was something beyond streamline the relationship with numerous student organizations and groupings, forged this important unit with / the workers / the industry, an unprecedented achievement not only in the struggles against rising Pass and the free pass student and unemployed, but for the whole of social struggles in our city and state.

In addition, it also streamlined the execution of certain basic jobs with greater autonomy, as the occupation of important bus terminals, where we leafleting and discussion with the people present there.

All this long work of ant manifest una last week, following the announcement of the increase. Strong organizational work and agitation, coupled with an increase outrage over abuse, said that this year even with the Court's rejection of State (ECA), which pointed overpricing rate, indicating the value of $ 2.60, resulting the popping of the largest demonstrations against the increase that the city has ever seen. Logo on Monday, 19/03, there were 2 simultaneous and coordinated actions that blocked two of the main avenues of Porto Alegre: the Avenues Bento Gonçalves and Ipiranga, the respective heights of the Valley Campus UFRGS and the PUC. Repression of shock upon the PUC and the constant provocation of the Brigade marching in Benedict failed to stop the acts who joined PUC in front, extending the blockade of Ipiranga until 22h.

IN DEFENSE OF PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION! BY REDUCING THE PASSAGE!!
-------------------------------------------------- ---

We demonstrate the strength of the movement in the streets. On Wednesday, the acts peaked. Thousands of fighters (as) saying NO to the increase concentrated in front of the city hall and demanded the reduction of the tariff. After a pushing and shoving in front of the door of the building, where he tried to force some "bombs" are flung ink, reaching the municipal secretary for policy coordination and governance, Caesar Busatto. Busatto is the same as when the head of the home civil government Yeda (PSDB), was accused of heading the looting of funds from the DMV for organizing slush. When struck by paint, Busatto came to making a public scandal, as if he had been shot by bullets fire and accusing us of damage and losses to public coffers.

Amid this tension, a companion was swept to power by security officers into the hall and handcuffed. It was the spark that was needed to lift the spirits of fellow / asexaustos / much of the humiliation and disrespect promoted by an alliance between the government, transport companies and mass media. The answer was immediate and to the point, when started up, spontaneously, we stress, stoning the windows of the city hall and some vehicles of the municipal guard. The riot squad was fired, firing stun grenades and advancing sadistically toward a fellow who was standing. The result: the companion thrown head over a curb, trampled and seriously injured. So far we have no information on this fellow and we fear the worst.

Even with the strong repression of the shock, the movement took another resounding show of force, accumulation and disposal to move on, no matter what. Maintained its unity, not scattered across the cowardly attack of shock and went on the march to the palace of the police to properly claim the release of detained fellow. It is important to emphasize that, as class solidarity that we have developed with / the workers / the road / as, solidarity with mates / the prey / is also the principle. If you touch a / a, all ring / as, and this conviction must be ingrained in all of us when we asruas.

It's time to reinforce the spirit of occupying the streets below, exerting direct action, not intimidating with the repressive action of the brigade and much less with the smear campaign that then develops the mainstream press. In this psychological warfare, plays a special role to $ RB and his gorilla on duty, Lasier Martins. We must not confuse public opinion with the excitement of these means that more than ever, play the role of the ideological apparatus of the bus companies and the administration Fortunatti (PDT). We know, and we have witnessed the acts and bus stops, in our places of work and study, those / who actually need the bus, the vast majority are supportive / us and them, this is the view that interests us, an opinion of class, of / the workers / as, unemployed / as, of / the oppressed / as this city!

The fight against the increase, therefore, enters its decisive moment. It is important to strengthen the organizational spaces Block Fight for Public Transport to coordinate future actions, think about the use of different strategies, intensify the groundwork and be prepared / the time to respond to the smear campaign and repressive already unleashed against our struggle. Probably will try to weaken us with the legalization movement. We must be very well organized around the block to turn this game around in our favor. The moment is favorable ànossa fight
so try to criminalize us.

We must respond with struggle and organization, ensuring the block while a broad and democratic space, with respect to the most distinguished forces, without rigging and forging unity in the struggles. This is how we turn the tables, defeating the reactionary bloc in the press (which operates as an agent of ideological increase) by prefecture (ensuring that operates politically corrupt bodies to approve the increase) by companies (which charge a historically true to the people of extortion Porto Alegre, providing a poor service and imposing a regime of extreme exploitation to / the workers / as) and accumulate forces to defend a public transport truly free and popular control.
