In this demonstration of France insoumise of 23 September, we want to address the activists gathered in Paris to discuss the construction of the balance of power indispensable to win. Make proposals and point out an error. ---- Lessons from defeats ---- Nothing worse than denying the difficulties. The weight of unemployment and precariousness weighs on the vitality of the trade unions in each company and hinders the extension of strikes. The retreat of combative militant traditions also weighs. In order to restore confidence in the strength of collective struggle, we must learn the lessons of our failures in 2010 and 2016. First of all, let us admit that large massive demonstrations and repeated strike days are no longer enough to win. ---- The challenge is therefore to build a permanent contestation, carried out every day until victory. But how to reach the general strike in today's conditions ?

Strike, blockage, sabotage

The day of strike is all too often wasted trampling behind the sandwich trucks. On the contrary, it must be useful to reflect on the follow-up, the reinforcement and the acceleration of the mobilization, service by service, company by company, city by city. GAs in industrial zones and cities provide an opportunity to meet employees in other sectors and other unions. It is also the means to associate the precarious, the retired, the youth in actions complementary to the strike. And when the balance of power is too weak to declare the strike renewable, the most energetic teams must imagine other modes of action: blockages, filtering, slowing down and sabotage of economic activity.The self-management of struggles as close as possible to the people to allow everyone to find themselves there.

Unity and trade union independence

Often, it is also a matter of reconstructing the tools of our struggles, unions, associations, collective ... This implies a constant effort to ensure respect for the independence of these tools. For it is this independence which is the condition of the broadest gathering, of the unity of the camp of the workers and workers beyond the inevitable political divisions, sometimes the hatreds, forged in the electoral competition.

We have suffered too much from the hegemonic behaviors of the PCF in the time of its splendor so as not to be vigilant to the return of such aims . Political parties and their elected representatives can provide useful support for social struggles. They are welcome as long as they do not seek to impose their objectives, leaders and schedules.

Thus, for September 23, it was up to the unions to decide whether or not a Saturday demonstration against the Macron Orders was a good idea at this time of the mobilization schedule . But to impose September 23 by force could only aggravate the divisions in the unions with the militants of other parties ; and to undermine the construction of the strike by replacing the easier but somewhat vain prospect of a weekend walk in Paris.
