In the Phocaean city, all and all the militants know this famous local. The lowering of the contributions and the suppression of a departmental subsidy put him today the knife under the throat. Faced with this situation, the association launches a call for support. ---- Since its creation in 2000, Mille Bâbords is an essential association of the Marseille social movement. His local rue Consolat is a point of support for local struggles, whose list is long after 16 years of existence. It is also a place of reflection, confrontation and information open to the " 1000 left " at the origin of his name. The local allows to organize public debates, work meetings, militant aperitifs, to make banners, to hold permanence, etc. There is also a lending library and a newspaper library. Mille Bâbords is also a very useful source of information with its militant agenda distributed via a weekly newsletter sent to 2,500 people, and via its website [1].

Self-management at the heart of the principles of the association
Membership in the association is open to individuals and organizations from diverse political backgrounds. However, in order to avoid divisions, the parties running in the elections are not accepted.

At present, there are 25 member organizations, trade unions like the CNT, SUD Education and Solidarity, associations such as Attac, RESF, UJFP, policies like AL and the FA. Self-management is not just a principle, it is a concrete practice, all the more exemplary in that it concerns people and groups of different political cultures.

Today, Mille Bâbords calls for help, the state of its finances puts its existence in danger. This is the result of a gradual deterioration: on the one hand, rent and operating costs have increased over the years, on the other hand if the number of members has remained stable, their incomes have decreased, leading to a decrease contributions. Then new alternative places have opened in Marseille, which is a very good thing, but suddenly the local Mille Bâbords is less used, which means a decrease in revenue from the rental of the room. This slow financial erosion has been overshadowed by an annual grant from the county council of approximately € 4,000. This year, the departmental council, passed right in 2015, did not renew the grant,

Call for support
Mille Bâbords contributed a lot to the social movement in Marseilles, its disappearance would be a blow for local struggles and freedom of expression. To remain a point of support for the convergence of struggles and the expression " 1000 left ", for this self-management experience to continue, Mille Bâbords needs support. You can donate online via the helloasso website [2], or by sending a check to Mille Bâbords 61 rue Consolat 13 001 Marseille.
