(en) [France] What does the Anarchist Federation want By ANA (pt) [machine translation]
Thu, 27 Feb 2020 09:43:14 +0200
In the face of the coming social rupture, we must fight against this social security project imposed by Macron and inspired by capitalism.
---- Since 1993, the suppression of counter-reforms that directly threaten the rights of employees has forced us to systematically adopt a
position of resistance in the face of repeated attacks by employers and the State against our social security. ---- However, bear in mind
that the current social security system is the result of the post-war "commitment" that enshrines the failure of the proletariat in its
fundamental objective of abolishing social, class and income inequalities. In fact, at the end of World War II, the working class's fear
that the ruling class in Western countries had led to this "compromise". If he agreed to abandon the idea of a radical change in the system,
he could enjoy a wide range of social benefits. It is not a question of minimizing these social benefits, but it should be noted that, since
the early 1980s, the content of the "compromise" has changed with the neoliberal offensive. Its objective - and its result - was to
reformulate wage relations and break the framework of negotiations with employers and the State.
At this moment, the only possible horizon is a social and political shock, an incessant struggle against capitalism and the State, because
the foundations of a compromise between the capitalist oligarchy and the world of work have disappeared, if they ever existed ...
It is, therefore, a matter of elaborating a political project to overcome present wage labor and industrial production, eliminating the
duration of useless and harmful activities, in order to free up free time to dedicate, individually, to our real desires and, collectively ,
to the self-managed organization of our society, getting rid of socially and ecologically destructive economic imperatives.
The Anarchist Federation aspires to a society free of all coercive political and social institutions that hinder the development of a free
humanity. It aims at the immediate improvement of living conditions in the world of work, aiming at essentially political struggles,
precursors of a future society without capitalism, a form of social organization absolutely equal, since social injustices are clearly
derived from capitalism.
We don't expect anything from the state. Our needs are clear: the emancipation of workers, the abolition of social classes, absolute
equality, social justice and the self-organization of society.
If we strive to abolish existing capitalist exploitation, we are also working today within the state to reduce the rate of profit and
increase the share that returns to workers. From this point of view, the struggle against capitalism must be at the same time a struggle
against coercive political institutions, because the political power of the state is only a consequence of the capitalist monopoly and the
division into classes of society. The State is the guarantee of the unequal social order that we want to destroy.
For the Anarchist Federation, this horizon of struggles must increasingly take the form of direct action and, in particular, a general strike!
