(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL Décembre - Action Day of November 16: For twenty-four hours ... and more! (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Fri, 22 Dec 2017 08:52:26 +0200

A reflection on the protest interpro of November 16, held despite the difficulties to mobilize. An excerpt from the blog " To those who struggle and resist " held by Theo Roumier on Mediapart. ---- Whether one is at the CGT, at Solidaires, or even partisan of collective Social Front ... we are many and many to question us: what happens, why it does not take, why the strike, frank and massive, does it not impose itself in the social landscape of this early five-year macronized ?[...] ---- We can blame the form of the protest since September 12, the days of 24-hour " leapfrog " strike , and their organizers, the " union leadership ": it would be to believe that all the causes of our difficulties would come from " above ".[...]

Corporatism can also be torn up, for example, unions of public servants who, with the strike day of October 10, came to strike at the inter-professional mobilization: but the challenge was not to denounce, but to build on this mobilization, corporative yes, to converge other claims. This is what several departmental inter-unions have tried[...].

However, it can be argued that strong initiatives taken by a somewhat more dynamic national union would help to give some confidence: some trade union groups are putting forward the idea of calling for two or three days of consecutive strikes. Why not, we must discuss this idea and there is no reason not to propose it within our organizations.[...]

The establishment of a national strike fund, as the union Infocom-CGT is trying to do, raises questions that must be looked at sincerely: if the objective is to generalize the strike, who will give money who ? Are we not running the risk of a proxy strike ?[...]What the refinery strikers said in 2016 is that they especially needed a strike as much as possible, everywhere. However, it should not be denied that the help given to thousands of employees through this, as well as the high transparency of the operation are eminently appreciable.[...]

Let's continue, without letting go, to build these days of 24-hour strike, any " leapfrog " they are ... but, like days of anger, revolt in the workplace. Let's use them to make speech free at work, that employees express themselves. Let us use them to organize in the regions, demonstrations, actions that are out of the ordinary of the demonstration of downtown and which are useful for the framework of mobilization which we chose: parades, strikers and sections trade unions CGT, SOUTH or FO in the areas of commercial and industrial activities, invite to disengage, regain the taste of ad hoc blockages, targeting again economic interests.[...]

We must express loud and clear claims that can have a scope equivalent to that of 8 hours for the CGT 1906 (that of the Charter of Amiens, you), which combine both immediate improvement - and seen as such by the employees - and the project of society, here releasing the time of the employer rapacity. Support and publicize self-management experiences, such as those of Scop-Ti or Vio.Me, which demonstrate that wealth is indeed produced by those who work.[...]
