(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - Yellow Vests: Who Sows Misery Reap Anger (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Fri, 7 Dec 2018 08:12:32 +0200

A little everywhere in France, the same anger, the same determination and the same desire not to let it go. Everywhere, wild processions that defy police supervision. Everywhere, protesters and demonstrators who express their rage at the repression. ---- In Puy-en-Velay (43), police violence overheated a crowd of several thousand people who eventually attacked the prefecture. ---- In Paris, the police locked the Champs-Élysées and caused a dispersion of yellow vests in all the bourgeois neighborhoods of the capital that were literally stormed. ---- Although the forces of repression could use the major means (tear gas curtains, water cannon, grenades), the angry workers showed that the street belonged to them: boulevard Haussmann, Tuileries, rue de Rivoli, place Vendome, yellow vests roamed the road, taunted the police and sometimes attacked symbols of power and wealth. Thus, showcases of luxury department stores were broken while groups were trying to attack the stock market.

Paris, 1 st December 2018.
Yann Castanier / Hans Lucas
In Martigues (13) or Vichy (03), the yellow vests and trade unionists marched together, in a beautiful class solidarity, but in too many cities, it is regrettable that the combative trade union organizations have not yet been visible and did not further reach out to the yellow vests.

Yet it is one of the essential steps towards victory: it is necessary that the combative unions, which really organize the resistance against the bosses in the companies, put themselves at the side of the yellow vests in the face of a contemptuous government, which multiplies the gifts to the richest and let the rest of the population sink into misery. Saturdays of anger must be transformed into a strike on Mondays, on Tuesdays, on Wednesdays.

" Yellow vests: Anger is there, what now ? " AL release of 20 November 2018
Faced with a government that remains deaf, faced bosses who benefit more and more employees, we must continue to put the pressure and it passes through a complete blockage of production.

The government and the bosses understand only the law of money ? Well, let's put them in the wallet: block transport, block businesses, block public services. We are the ones who make the economy run, they are nothing without us.

Take back what the capitalists stole from us
Anger is there. We must now organize to allow it to last and build a balance of power that will win. But to win what ? The main slogan that was taken from Paris to Marseille and Rennes to Toulouse is " Macron resignation ". Because Macron symbolizes all the contempt of the bourgeoisie towards the workers, because it is he who controls the attacks against the employees. But it's not by blowing up Macron or blowing up the government that we will actually make a difference.

What needs to be put forward are concrete demands, which make it possible to get out of the infernal spiral to take back all that the capitalists have stolen from us and to conquer new rights.

For this, we must organize ourselves at the base, build assemblies that allow us to discuss our demands without leaving others to propose them for us. Our solutions, we will not find them in the promises of politicians who already want to recover the mobilization. Our solutions, we will find them by exchanging, debating and coordinating to be stronger all and all together.

Macron is scared and he is right to be scared. Fifty years after May 68, the bottom of the air is red.
