(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - International, Algeria: For the popular classes to express their aspirations (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Thu, 14 Mar 2019 11:03:16 +0200

Popular upsurges of 22 February and 1 st March inaugurated a new situation in Algeria not only because of their size but because they have already pushed back a government whose undemocratic arrogance is matched only by the Antisocial rigor. ---- In his message of March 3, President Abdelaziz Bouteflika commits himself in the event of reelection - which does little doubt in the eyes of his entourage - to organize an " independent national conference " which would set the date of an early presidential election in which he would not take part. ---- For their part, the French authorities, through the Foreign Ministry, say they have " taken note " of this candidacy for a fifth consecutive term that tramples on the choice of the Algerian people that French diplomacy is nevertheless mine to respect.

If the Algerians, in their overwhelming majority, remain determined to refuse this umpteenth masquerade, many illusions remain. These are maintained by the opposition parties who want " everything to change so that nothing changes ", except for their particular interests.

The Secretary General of the Workers' Party, Louisa Hanoune, calls on the one hand for the self-organization of the masses through " popular committees " and, on the other hand, for the holding of a Constituent Assembly where " the businessmen broken by the oligarchy will have their place ". How to understand ?

In such a framework, the slogan Constituent Assembly, which has long been worn by the Democrats, would ultimately be used to give a second wind to the men of the state, the bourgeoisie and bureaucrats of the General Union of Algerian Workers to be " Saved ".

Instead of " rebuilding a national and popular consensus ", as proposed by the Front des forces socialistes, it is more up to young people, workers, artists and intellectuals to build a new balance of power, to federate freely and manage their own affairs.

Only the general strike would allow the popular classes to express their aspirations, test their own strengths and gain self-confidence, without wasting precious time in political combinations that would only benefit capitalists, praetorians or fundamentalists.
