(en) France, Alternative Libertair: The change? Impose it! (fr) [machine translation]

Date Sun, 10 Jun 2012 18:17:19 +0300

Sarkozy has emerged, raising high hopes among the popular classes. ---- Yet on the evening of his election, Holland began to blow that given economic conditions, it would have to be "realistic". The economic crisis current will therefore rapidly lead us to the moment of truth: austerity or left real change? ---- The change is when? ---- There were not many commitments already in the program of Holland. He talked a lot about justice and education, but often in vague terms. Or just his government appointed, he already hears back on its commitments regarding the retirement at age 60. It was already half-measure that did not repeat the "Haircut", introduced by the UMP, which reduces the pensions of employees who are less-41 years of contribution. Today in Holland intends not to take more account periods of unemployment and maternity leave in the calculation of these annuities.

Other flagship commitment: the non-accumulation of. Finally, it is restricted to
mandates municipal mayors or deputy. Phew! The notables of the PS will be able
keep their jobs and benefits that come with it. Manuel Valls goes well
to remain interior minister, mayor of Evry, president of the community
agglomeration Centre Evry Essonne while running for legislative. What
"Exemplary"! Similarly, when Holland says "the French troops leave
Afghanistan, "one must understand" 1550 on 3550 present military
remain in place. "

Austerity: it resists or people submit!

Beyond that, it is necessary that we remain clear about what is coming. Patterns
are being carried out social plans during the campaign
Presidential. Air France plans 5,000 job cuts, Crossroads 4000, PSA
6000, not to mention countless jobs at risk in the subsidiaries of these large
groups. What will the socialists against the dismissals? Oppose
frankly to corporate power? Or declare that "the State can not at all" and
let, as Jospin during the closure of Renault Vilvoorde in 1997?

Financial markets seem in any case have an opinion on the matter: they
quite imagined the election of Holland and are betting that it will comply with their
requirements, or better, he's going to sweeten the pill. In fact, the example of
forced resignation of Papandreou in Greece, after it has dared to propose a
referendum on the austerity plans, shows that markets and technocrats
Europeans in their service do not hesitate to put pressure on governments that
come out of nails. The half-austerity is not possible or is broken
with it, it is organized.

Let the pressure!

The future is not written. Which will be essential to invent another company,
this will be the resistance that we can oppose the dismissals and
austerity policies. And that does not expect these to be built
resistances. The Dutch government will soon be faced with contradictions and
we must now put pressure on him, without being indulgent with es-
half-measures it proposes. In all cases, this government is only
transition. Either he capitulates to the demands of the bosses, bankers and
European technocrats and then it opens the way to the right and the extreme right.
Either we can impose our demands and then it will grow more
far in the break with the austerity policies: Challenging the
direction of the economy by employers and by blocking financial dividends
and imposing a veto of the worker-to-s on layoffs,
develop public services and put under control of user-es, open
borders to the movement of people and not only of goods.
In short, bring out an alternative to capitalism.
