(en) Portugal, Colectivo Libertario Evora: For a May 1 fight and battle! (pt)[machine translation]

Date Tue, 30 Apr 2013 17:44:25 +0300

Tomorrow, May 1st, many anarchists, again, will take to the streets across the country in demonstrations own or joining the demonstrations called by other collectives or other associations of workers. Anyway, this is a day of struggle and revolutionary statement in tribute to the dead anarchists in Chicago at the hands of the State. In recent years, Setúbal has been the point of concentration, this day, for many libertarian and anti-authoritarian doing Sado city, on the 1st May, a space of struggle and fight against capitalism. Also this year will be one for sure. But wherever we are is the important thing is expressing our indignation and show that it is possible another fairer and more egalitarian. ---- The latest economic data, lead by the Constitutional Court of some measures which were in the state budget and its replacement by cuts in various sectors, but especially in the Education, Health and Social Support foresee an economic accentuating the difficulties of the poor, the After many months in a row to tighten their belts and with successive cuts in their income, are totally debilitated and economically no choice but to remain in the acting, organized and strong resistance to joint offensive of the state and employers.

The austerity has led to growing unemployment and precariousness that already reaches most Portuguese workers. The real unemployment now exceeds 20 percent and the number of unemployed, without any social support is steadily increasing.

While this drama is spreading to large sectors of Portuguese society, political parties remain entertained with local elections scheduled for later this summer, touting candidates and programs are always more of the same - a perfect uselessness, mostly, exchanging popular aspirations of well being and happiness for seats in return for political favors, corruption and nepotism.

If that were not enough, the parties of the left system, PCP and BE and some sectors of the PS seem possessed of a malady and the only solution that comes to the "crisis" is the resignation of the government and call for elections. Entangled in this jig-plays electioneering, in a speech blocked and stuck, PCP, BE and some movements associated with them, such as What is Sand Troika, make the game PS already hastens to return to power - whether now or in 2015, it is anticipated that the next Parliament elections.

Despite the little electoral weight they have in society, PCP and BE, but especially the communists, caught in a nationalist discourse patrioteiro, with few differences from the discourse of the extreme right as the defense of "national independence", still retain influence zones important in the labor movement, paralyzing him and depleting its ability to fight in little ridiculous, as are the manifestations listed without purpose, just to show they are "alive", and strikes a day or a few hours, only wear workers and do not bring any advantage.

Against this background - and being the libertarian movement and anti-authoritarian minority still in Portugal - urges focus efforts on creating spaces where the fight is more radicalized, creative and where they can gain visible: creating committees against evictions; advance occupations whether collective or individual spaces; encourage wildcat strikes and successive acts of civil disobedience, etc. ..

Only daring new forms of struggle and showing that through direct action, self-management struggles and mutual-aid you can win, we can create the conditions for returning the anarcho-syndicalism and anarchist organization of workers on the agenda.

For a May 1st libertarian and emancipatory!

No manifestations of make-believe!
