(en) France, Coordination of Anarchist Groups press release - ANI, Pensions and ... Social insecurity! (fr, pt) [machine translation]
Sat, 04 Jan 2014 14:19:26 +0200
The year 2013 brought us a lot of felonies and low cowardice. The Social Democrat
government has shown itself the equal of his Liberal predecessors: ---- After ANI
(National Interprofessional Agreement) dated 11 January 2013 and 14 May 2013, the adoption
of the law transposing the agreement on securing employment is December 18 that pension
reform is be finally adopted a reform "key" of the quinquennium F. Holland, law considered
shy by international institutions, including the European Commission. ---- A final law
which transposes into domestic law all the requirements laid for decades by the MEDEF.
---- A bill passed in parliament without any real opposition and a relative indifference.
The reform provides a lengthening of the contribution period in the private and public
sectors to 43 years by 2035 and an overall increase of 0.3 percentage points in four years
of employee and employer contributions. The European Commission ruled that the law would
reduce " the deficit of the pension system but not enough to eliminate it by 2020."
A flexibility of employment, occupational and geographical mobility become somewhat rule,
dismissal facilities for businesses, is now added the disastrous consequences for the
quality of life of employee - es, working increasingly and contribute more...
As for the guarantee to receive a decent pension will require ironing. There are yet no
matter where to amaze us!
Historically governments, whatever their political color, have made ââtheir choice, taking
into account only the interests of the capitalists. Note for example that if employer
contributions will also experience an increase, governments have already announced that
contractors will recover in 2014 all or part of this new spending through a significant
decrease in other employer contributions, including financing social protection.
When such abuses of this new reality, the deficit in the " Safely " which is in the tens
of billions of euros are brought together, it is legitimate to say that liberalism, social
democracy and other political offer gorge themselves on the back producing and producers.
Diversions to the financiÃre1 bubble, entrepreneurs payers - including state - these are
the real reasons for the collapse of the welfare system. Political caste, financiers and
speculators steal money from those who toil and squander their remaining the greatest
Responses hoped from the unions did not come away from it. Whatsoever about the
casualization of the pension reform, the precariousness of the social " safety"... the
union leaders did not mobilize the expected level.
The only events in Nantes, Paris and some other cities and unit call (CGT, FSU and
Solidarity ) to December 18 " Pension Reform - We let go anything! " Also the effect of a
promise that certainly will not be held, have only strengthened with employee - es, of
retirees and those who are private - es of employment, printing a rout against the
employer arrogance and historical complicity of successive governments.
When a union leader of a large central finds nothing else to do but to invite members to
"show courage", it appears obvious that he is not ready to mobilize beyond the endless
days strike 24H (when it is no less !), unnecessary and ineffective. He is not ready to
embarrass the caste politician ne s and MPs who contrefoutent social crisis, the
impoverishment of the majority of those who toil and misery engulfing France.
It is useful to recall that the extreme right National Front head and all the fascist
pharmacies, make their honey and the successive delays arise in use for so-called stem
social and national collapse...
Obviously, these tartufferies should not fool anyone, both of these proposals sorcerers
apprentices strong state, retrograde ideas and use of authoritarian and violent solutions
are obvious and inappropriate. Yet it must be said that this fascist propaganda feeds on
proven and subsequent abandonment of proletarian organizations.
Before such a finding, social regressions imposed by the employers and the state, use
mobilisations and struggles often ridiculous, and finally, the rise of far-right ideas, it
is urgent to restore the centrality of social response that she would never have lost.
Needless to be fooled any longer by the political and media discourse.
The largest number of us think it is absolutely unbearable suffering layoffs, precarious
contracts and working conditions and degraded life without flinching, without answering.
Union divisions, we have seen, and strategies for strike days 24H not involving
mobilization but resignation and failure, it appears that the construction of a strong and
independent social movement of the various institutions seems necessary. This may seem
difficult to achieve but it is the only way to fight for a glimpse of something other than
At first, reduce government and employers and subsequently create the conditions for a
change in depth, this is the road we think, the CGA be good.
Fight today against poverty and social collapse with the prospect of creating an
egalitarian distribution of wealth is the only way to break with capitalism and statism.
Let's finish once and for all with the economic and political domination of a few - es and
operation of many.
