(en) France, UCL - New "confinement": faced with the bankruptcy of the rulers, let us impose socialization (ca, de, it, fr, pt)[machine translation]
Thu, 8 Apr 2021 10:00:50 +0300
Once again, the announcements of March 31 made by Macron, in disaster, are far
from satisfactory. It requires individual efforts, especially hospital staff,
already saturated, while claiming to appeal to solidarity and the collective. He
thus sets up, without any consultation, authoritarian measures which serve only
one interest: that of the bourgeoisie and the capitalists. Faced with the
bankruptcy of this system, let's organize solidarity. ---- Macron improvises and
it's the workers who drink ---- Contaminations explode. The situation is
worsening rapidly and is in some ways more worrying than last spring: more
extensive in terms of geography and age.
Hospitals are overwhelmed, resuscitation services are at their maximum capacity.
The 10,000 beds in intensive care announced are only an emergency measure and are
not intended to last. Beyond the places in intensive care, the personnel are
lacking: yet another proof of the improvisation of the government.
Macron continues to favor shareholders and employers to the detriment of workers'
health. The call for the goodwill of the bosses to set up teleworking is
ineffective, this strategy implemented since the beginning of the crisis has
turned out to be a failure. In addition, it is not possible to set up teleworking
for all trades. The state offers nothing for those who are not concerned.
For the unemployed, nothing is set up even though the return to employment over
the period is almost impossible. Likewise, many people are homeless, at a time
when the state is still evicting people, requisitioning empty housing remains a
Rather than massively vaccinating and testing the state is implementing coercive
measures on life - outside of work.
While Blanquer explained for months that schools were not a place of
contamination, they are now closed in the face of the obvious. The government
worries about the education of students when it keeps the economy going but
continues to destroy the school with absurd reforms. He reacts only when forced
and forced rather than listening to the demands of staff, unions and parents'
associations which could have made it possible to break the chains of transmission.
Immediately, let's organize solidarity.
Let us put in place solidarity in our villages and in our neighborhoods. Let us
watch over each other, especially the most vulnerable.
Intra-family and conjugal violence exploded during periods of confinement. Let's
organize to stop violent men from happening again.
Let's get ready for a new wave of facies checks and police raids in popular
neighborhoods. Let us oppose our united determination to the police.
By the struggles and for our class from now on we want
Socialization of the health system:
socialization of clinics and other private health pharmacies and end of the
regime for liberal doctors ;
overhaul of the health system as a whole ;
requisition of pharmaceutical factories, prevent closures and relocations of Big
Democratic planning of vaccine production:
cancel the patents of vaccines for mass production without having to pay
royalties to laboratories already stuffed with public funds ;
requisition and socialization of laboratories and production plants ;
organization of a mass vaccination campaign for all, taking into account all
situations (medical, epidemiological, social, etc.).
The abandonment of anti-social reforms aggravating precariousness and the
implementation of strong solidarity measures:
requisition of empty housing ;
access to social minima for all ;
abolition of the unemployment insurance reform.
It is not for us to pay for their crisis, neither with our health, nor with a
debt to repay !
