(en) France, Union Communiste Libertaire AL #297 - Education: In Bobigny, "be a teacher and shut up !" (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Tue, 17 Sep 2019 09:54:35 +0300

Since the beginning of the mobilization against the Blanquer law, everyone has in mind the extraordinary anti-union repression suffered by four teachers of the college Republic, Bobigny (93). To defend them, the mobilization was exemplary, even if it was not enough. ---- "Be a teacher and shut up": anyone who participated in the mobilization against the Blanquer law could see many T-shirts, stickers or cloth bags stamped with this slogan accompanied by a drawing showing the minister gagging a teacher. It is in particular the committee of support to the repressed staff of the college Republic in Bobigny (93) which distributed this material. Thanks to him, the repressed of the college Republic - victims of an exceptional repression - have imposed themselves in the landscape of the mobilization against the law Blanquer.

To understand what is happening, you should know that the Republic College in Bobigny, ranked REP + (highest level of priority education), has for several decades a very strong anchor in social mobilizations. The college was thus among the spearheads in the mobilization for an emergency plan in Seine-Saint-Denis in 1998. In recent years, it has been the scene of multiple strikes, strikes and actions under the right to withdrawal.

However, since the winter of 2017, the administration has decided to clean up this college too hectic. Begins then a hallucinating gears, culminating in the spring of 2018, a visit of several weeks of the General Inspectorate (top of the hierarchy), at the request of the Minister. Then, after a period of latency, the chopper fell in March 2019: two teachers subject to disciplinary procedures, and two by transfers "in the interests of the service" - that is to say without the should justify them.

Solidarity Fund, 10,000 petitioners ...
But it was, on the part of the hierarchy, to attack a strong and reactive team, well inserted into the union network. The response has been up to par: public meetings, support night, rallies in front of the rectorate, solidarity fund, campaign on social networks, 10,000 petitioners in support. A forum on Mediapart has been signed by many academics, trade unionists and politicians. The inter-union CGT-CNT-FO-SNEP-SNES-SOUTH of 93 supported the mobilization end-to-end.

And yet, that will not have been enough ! Admittedly, the two disciplinary procedures have been reduced to mere blame ; on the other hand, the two mutations "in the interest of the service" were validated by the rector in July. The mobilization was exemplary, but it was not enough, for the time being, to block the institutional steamroller.
