France lives very important fighting hours. The French people have risen, like so many other times in recent times, to put an end to the neoliberal advancement. On this occasion, an unpublished movement such as the "yellow vest," arisen as a result of rising fuel prices and their impact on rural and peripheral areas of cities, mobilized hundreds of thousands of people a month ago, blocking routes and developing actions throughout the country. Calls were growing and the most visible mobilizations were given in Paris, on Saturdays, affecting the tourist circuits and registering a great deal of clashes with the police. ---- Before that, the repression was Macron's only response. Voted by a lot of citizenship as a "minor evil" in the face of the advance of the National Front of Marine Le Pen, is the direct representative of the great financial capital; Moreover, Macron himself directly belongs to this field. And once it has joined the government, it has launched a new wave of neo-liberal advancement with privatizations, rebates of rights and tax increases for the bass but with an exponential increase in the profits of the rich.

This movement is the expression of the discontent and discomfort that the population feels about such measures, in the face of the de-structuring of health and education systems, social and municipal services, factory closures, unemployment and the crisis, while the Transnational capital devastates with all its voracity and wants to take control of everything that is of use and social benefit.

Initially, the main French trade union center -CGT- and the "France's unsubmised" party of Mélenchon looked with some suspicion of the movement, while the extreme right led by Le Pen tried to capitalize on it. With the active participation of the SUD unions and various combat sections of CGT and other trade union centers, and along with the emergence of the student struggle, the movement gained a clear popular and critical dimension of the government and crucial aspects of the system The calls in the demonstrations and the fighting platform were extended to include a sharp increase in wealth tax, industrial promotion policies and generation of wealth employment and distribution.

This changed the attitude of the CGT, which along with the remaining union leaders called for a general stop on December 14. For his part, Mélenchon is worried to capture votes of these mobilizations towards his party in the next elections and his proposal is to lower the decibels to the fight and channel it through institutional channels. But this does not seem easy, because the movement has multiple spokesmen and various nuances that enrich it, and that is precisely what is verified in the various pickets and demonstrations.

This nationwide movement that has massified and sustained an important level of mobilization, infecting other regions of Europe such as Belgium, has the potential to extend this rebellion to other parts of the continent and perhaps beyond. It is striking for its extension throughout the entire French territory, in the ring road and the crossroads of routes, where the people really occupy the public space and take control of the circulation. In this union of a new movement with the union movement, student and popular in general, there is a solid foundation for the construction of a popular alternative, articulating various social actors from below. As we say, the construction of a Front of Oppressed Classes advancing in the construction and development of Popular Power.

Repression has killed a death in Marseille, thousands are detained, injured and have suffered the consequences of repression. We demand the end of the repressive policy and the freedom for all the companions and the detained colleagues and that they are taken care of the popular demands.

It should be clarified that repressive policy occurs throughout Europe; adjustment, austerity and repression is the triad that the governments of the European Union apply to their peoples. We saw the case of Greece. It is in sight of the politics of migration with a strong racist character. Just in Greece, on December 18, he was detained for 17 months, although without a prison, his colleague, Lola Gutiérrez, to help an 18-year-old Kurdish man meet with his family, joining Europe. This is the "Strength Europe", Europe that punishes solidarity.

The French people are giving an exemplary lesson. Our colleagues and companions of Alternative Libertaire and CGA (Coordination of Anarchist Groups), who are traveling through a process of union of the two organizations, are embedded in all popular mobilizations and organizations, with a good level of participation And organizational impact, practicing a methodology of direct action, forging the role of the people and promoting self-management. Organized anarchism has much to say and contribute in a situation like France.

From now on all our support to our brothers and sisters from both organizations and the French people, which again gives the peoples of the world a fighting experience, which is already the heritage of the history of the down.
