(en) France, Alternative Libertaire leaflet AL: electoral circus or social war? Do not let bury the battles of 2016! (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Sun, 4 Dec 2016 13:37:13 +0200

The year 2016 will be a great year of social struggles. Strikes, demonstrations, blockades, a determined core of salarié.es remained highly mobilized despite police repression, despite the 49-3, despite support from the CFDT to government attacks PS. Do not let our anger get bogged down in the electoral swamp! ---- 2016 stopped Sept. 15 ---- rhythm, or not having attempted an appeal to three consecutive strike days we will of course blame the National Inter for not having enough drive. We can make the same reproach to many union structures (federal, local, dishes) played qui'ont not always win. But the fact is, disturbing and frightening: if there 's been no progressive development of mobilized fringes, this is indeed due to the demoralization of the majority of salarié.es and their organizations.

In 2010, leapfrogging days very distant from each other have exhausted in vain a really massive mobilization leading to a big demoralization of salarié.es. This is what we paid in 2016: we are a minority resté.es, strong, determined and active minority but nevertheless still believe in the collective ability to reverse a government.

This year nothing prevented salarié.es to seize the signs given for the generalization of the strike and enter into a renewed strike dynamic. However note that neither the brutality of the police and judicial repression, nor the necessary solidarity campaigns have broken morale combattant.es, quite the contrary: the pride of standing up in the storm makes less heavy defeat while keeping the morale. Valuable asset for appointments 2017!

After September 15?

While the quality of mobilization on September 15 showed intact the will to fight again, the national inter refused to organize later. It was a mistake, a questionable policy choices. Because even without enlargement of the fight, stop the mobilization was to open the way to illusions, divisions and electoral impasses. Dare do we still sing us that the PS is "less worse"? Is the emergency politicians fighting or reconstruction of the union tools on a class-struggle orientation, preparing the consciousness to great needs: expropriation of capitalist socialization of the means of production, business and self-management of society?

The path of struggle

The enactment of the El Khomri law under the simplified procedure: it is time to show that we are still able to say stop in the strike and in the streets. We must make the first opening of trading at a large company or a branch of agreements derogating great day of action to restart the machine. These are today's struggles against the PS government that will allow us to build those of tomorrow against new attacks we promise 2017 bourgeois politicians, Macron FN.
