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