(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - AL Tract, Vests of all colors: Unite us ! (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Mon, 4 Feb 2019 09:51:22 +0200

After three months of revolt of the yellow vests, the call to strike for February 5 should be an opportunity to weave more solidarity between yellow vests and Vests red, pink, green or other, and increase the pressure on Macron and the bosses for our demands for social justice, equality and democracy. ---- For 35 years and the liberal turn of the first Mitterrand government, it is the same anti-social and liberal policies that are applied by the right as by the left. Like Macron, Le Pen claims neither right nor left, seductive formula but false: he and she are both right ! Both are against the increase of the SMIC ! Precarious jobs, part-time work, delirious hours, uberisation, self-exploitation are the lot of those who work hard but who remain poor. Suffice it to add to this the destruction of public services and the tax giveaways made to the richest so that social anger will burn out !

Generally, it is the wrestling unions that organize the fight. But weakened by a succession of failures, they struggle to mobilize in companies where collaborative unions are gaining ground. Result: unprecedented social revolt moved out of the business, and arose on the roundabouts.

Taxes and social contributions
By mingling with the yellow vests at the beginning, the little bosses tried to mix the question of taxes with the question of social contributions. It must be clear on this: it has nothing to do.

Social security contributions are a part of our salary pooled to protect employees from the vagaries of life: sickness, unemployment, old age ... The more our salaries increase, the more contributions fi nance our social protections. So do not touch the social contributions, on the contrary !

As for taxes, we need them to fi nance schools, roads, hospitals ... The real problem is their unfair distribution: the bosses, even the little ones, are the first to cheat by playing with VAT and concealing recipes. For the biggest, it is massive tax fraud and tax havens. As for the VAT on consumer goods, which relates to the state, it is also the most unfair tax because, rich or poor, we pay exactly the same tax for the purchase of a rod. Even the homeless pay this tax !

Repression: capitalists tremble
Police violence is at the height of the fear of bosses and annuitants. While inequalities between workers and capitalists have never been greater, the rich will fight tooth and nail to intensify exploitation, demolish public services, and open up markets to private interests, including schools. and health. This is why we must strengthen the mobilization to disarm the fl ics, to refuse the new law " anti-breakers " and to obtain a general amnesty for the demonstrators condemned.

But the best defense is the attack. This is why, from February 5, we must combine all energies, beyond the differences, to block the country and bend Macron. Strike and blocking are complementary as the color of our vests because, whatever their color on roundabouts or in companies, they are on the shoulders of workers and workers revolted !
