(en) France, Manifesto of the UCL - A self-managed activist organization (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Fri, 2 Aug 2019 08:31:01 +0300

UCL is a self-managed federation, under the collective responsibility of all its activists. Without denying the necessity and the importance of the activities of coordination and animation of the organization, we seek to establish a framework of debate and intervention horizontal and decentralized. ---- UCL is under the collective leadership of its members. ---- cc Azagra ---- The Libertarian Communist Union is not a party: it is not intended to seek the votes of voters. The essential activity of the organization is the development and self-organization of the struggles against all the systems of domination: by its politics and by its propaganda, by its collective reflection, by training, by the help it brings, by the action of its members. ---- It works for the emergence of a counter-power of the base of society and a break with the capitalist, patriarchal and racist order.

Solidarity, struggles, self-management
We also want to make UCL a privileged space of solidarity and mutual aid, especially in the face of repression.

The organization rests, until the adherents and the adherents decide otherwise, on the present Manifesto. Neither historical program nor immutable declaration of principle, this manifesto is indeed only a moment of a theoretical, practical and organizational process, which itself contains a potential dynamic of overcoming.

A statutory contract lays down the operating rules of the organization and binds all and all freely associated members. The strategic orientations of the organization, its positions, its decisions are subject to debate, collective decision, votes of the entire organization. It thus constitutes a field of experimentation for the self-management and federalist democracy, in coherence with the libertarian communist project: we want an egalitarian society, without leader, and we strive to make it live within the UCL.

This alternative in action allows activists to have a real experience and a self-management practice. This gives them the opportunity to infuse with greater ease and confidence these practices within the struggles and social movements, in the collectives, unions and associations in which they and they campaign.

A functioning consistent with our goals
The organization is therefore a self-managed federation, placed under the collective responsibility of all its activists. By reversing the traditional image of the hierarchical party, but without denying the necessity and importance of coordination and animation activities of the organization, we seek to establish a framework for horizontal and decentralized debate and intervention.

The practice of the mandate makes it possible to reconcile collective development and efficiency ; the mandates are defined, controlled by the members of the organization who can, if necessary, revoke the mandated persons.

Organization is a plural place where, on a common political basis, a wide variety of opinions can be expressed freely. While it is natural for it to give itself a majority orientation, it none the less scrupulously guarantees the rights of minorities and local groups to expression. This in the internal debate of course, but also in the press of the organization, according to the terms established by the statutory contract.

The organization seeks the convergence of the actions of its members in an obvious concern for efficiency. Activists are bound by their mandate when it comes to speaking or acting on behalf of the organization but, apart from that, everyone can act according to their personal choices.

The organization refuses any report of direction or substitution towards the struggles of the workers, the workers and the population. It can participate in the organization of initiatives and mobilizations. The activists of our current can take their place in these struggles. But the direction of the social struggles must remain under the collective control of those who make them live. Our fight is international as is the structuring of the current we will build.
