While the world of work is traversed by waves of layoffs, privatization and outsourcing, the government encourages us to "tighten our belts," including questioning our pensions. It is high time to reverse the vapor in engaging in battle with the employers and the right. ---- A frontal attack against the unfunded pension ---- Whether the UMP, the PS and the Greens all agree that the lengthening of life must be followed by a lengthening of the contribution period for pension. They only discuss what form this should take longer. However, we choose to extend the contribution period or delay the retirement age, the consequences will be the same. Many employee-es, especially women, fail not already contributing 40 and must leave before retirement or incomplete.

This system will generalize with lengthening the contribution period and eventually only a portion of employee-es can supplement their pension with private pension funds. Lengthening the contribution period is thus indeed a challenge to the PAYG system.

Note head

However, other solutions are possible. There are many more resources at the time of the creation of retirement in 1947. The real problem does no politico is the distribution of wealth. It could very well today reduced working time, reduce the contribution period and increase wages and pensions. But it must address the capital income.

The employers and the government did not hesitate themselves to address the labor income. While they are fully responsible for the crisis, they are choosing to pay for the classes. The situation is already very difficult for workers and workers: dismissals, restructuring multiple public and private sectors, increasing insecurity caused suffering to work more and more. However, it does not prevent employers and government to demand that we worked longer for them. The situation is the same everywhere in the world. In Greece, they no longer hesitate to reduce pensions and salaries and to redeploy staff. This is what awaits us if we did not note his head to say stop to spit capital to impose a different distribution of wealth and other social organization.

Our weapon is the strike

To organize the mobilization, we know on which counting or not. The PS and his underlings have already capitulated. The CFDT is streamlined for reform, as in 2003. The leadership of the CGT refused to consider an Inter without the CFDT, then refuses an Inter that fights against the reform.

It is futile to expect that the union leaders engage in a real mobilization. We can only count on ourselves to take this fight. Many of us, its not resign ourselves, then we regroup! Now, we must gather inter-union struggle and general meetings in each company, the defense committees of pension in each district to organize the response.

The regional elections showed that the government was weakened and no longer has the support he had in 2005. We can do it backwards. And a victory would completely change the scale gives the following series of defeats that we have collected in recent years. If we win, it shows that collective action has a meaning, that the redistribution of wealth is possible, it should not be resigned.
