(en) France, Manifesto of the Union Communist Libertaire UCL - Values for a new world (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

The advent of a libertarian society would not mean the end of history and the establishment of an "earthly paradise" ; relations of domination could subsist or resurface. It will remain important to put forward values, to continue to question operations, practices, and probably struggles. ---- Observations of newts during the victory demonstration at Notre-Dame-des-Landes, in February 2018. ---- cc Daniel Maunoury ---- Libertarian communism aims to articulate as harmoniously as possible our need to belong to a collective and our aspirations to be recognized and respected in our singularity. What we are aiming for is a society where everyone for himself is replaced by cooperation and mutual aid. A society where there are no longer those who own, and those who have nothing or little. A society where there are no longer rich or poor. A society where the orders of the ruling minorities are swept away by the collective, free and assumed choices. A society where the individual, the local, the particular and the collective, the social, the cultural: an egalitarian and libertarian society are balanced and mutually supportive.

Equality and freedom can only be effective in a real democracy that prevents the reconstitution of a new power and new oppressions, which allows each and everyone to assert their choices and aspirations. Libertarian communism is horizontal and direct democracy ; the sovereign people self-institutes society, self-governs its policy, self-manages its production and more generally determines its collective needs and ways of responding to them.

Self-management of production, freed from the imperatives of productivism and the race for profit, can finally put at the service of individuals research and technical advances. Respectful of the environment, it opens the way to a new relationship reintegrating the community of humans into the balance of ecosystems.

Because it satisfies collective needs and is rid of the exploitation report, the work can make sense, lose its alienating character, allow everyone to gain control of their activities.

Individual and collective emancipations are inseparable
The egalitarian satisfaction of the needs expressed in a society founded on the emancipation of individuals and basic communities does not mean leveling or standardization, and respects the multiplicity of lifestyles, tastes and aspirations.

Libertarian communism is the fight for a society where individuals are free, equal and responsible. Free in a world of material necessities, and in a society where we participate in common tasks and collective responsibilities. Free to express themselves, to create ; free from their lifestyles, their sexualities, their cultures. Responsible, masters of their work, participating in the side of all and all self-management of production and society. Equal to all, and therefore equal with everyone in the distribution of labor products.

To foster this empowerment, a self-managed society must make access to education, information and culture effective on an emancipatory basis.

Libertarian communism is the end of a certain order of the world. The end of colonialism and imperialism, in favor of an egalitarian and united relationship between all peoples, based on the productive autonomy of each region, and the sharing of wealth between rich and poor areas. The end of the state order, in favor of a free federation of self-managed regions. The end of borders and the threat of war, for a world without barriers and totally demilitarized.

Defend an ethics
The advent of a libertarian society would not mean the end of history and the establishment of an "earthly paradise" ; relations of domination could subsist or resurface. It will remain important to put forward values, to continue to question operations, practices, and probably struggles.

All of these values imply a coherence between means and ends without which there is no hope of living libertarian communism. This is why, without waiting for a revolutionary change, we are trying to make its goals live here and now, in our actions and our commitments, in our living and struggling spaces.
