(en) Montpellier - Another Future c-g-a.org: Thursday, February 7th, 2019 - 19:15 - 22:30 -- Next act: Direct democracy? (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

At the beginning of July 2018, everything seemed to be going well for Macron, in Jupiterian form. After a standoff, he had just undergone a strong strike movement at the SNCF and the Universities, with the bonus of a world cup in the key. A bright future seemed promised to the golden boy of finance. ---- Yet today, Emmanuel Macron, weakened by the Benalla affair, seems charred. His presidency exploded in flight, largely thanks to the movement of the Yellow Vests. This social movement, born November 17, 2017, has so far managed to defeat the government, and to pose a very strong renewal of the social question, of the class struggle, but also of the modalities of actions that take the struggles in France.
This movement also recalled that when the established order feels threatened, it shows the teeth and that cops and magistrates are his guard dogs. An unprecedented (recent) crackdown on the Yellow Vests: heavy penalties, mass arrests, and mutilations at random in the crowd with flashballs and grenades.

On the other hand, the movement has been able to question the established order at a high speed: gasoline taxes, social demands, social demands to the RIC (citizens' initiative referendum) and for some of the RIC to the revolution. What to think of these revolutionary aspirations to direct democracy? Can they be limited to the RIC or do they not rather pose the global question of popular control of the economy and of everyday life?

Moreover, as we have seen, women have played a leading role in the movement, including the Women's March. How to think their implications? What are the demands for women in Yellow Vests?

We would like to discuss all these questions with you on Thursday, February 7 at 19:15 at the Gerbe, 19 Rue Chaptal in Montpellier.
