(en) France, UCL - A hit against one of us is a hit against all of us (ca, de, it, fr, pt)[machine translation]
Thu, 6 May 2021 10:22:12 +0300
During the Paris and Lyon manifestations of 1 stMay, the CGT union processions
were physically attacked and throw acid products. Recall that on 1 stMay is not
the "Labor Day", but since 1887 an international day of claim and struggle of our
class tribute to our union comrades murdered by the Chicago police on 1 stMay
1886. Despite health and social context that more complicated, the mobilization
of the 1 stMay throughout France should not be overshadowed by the unacceptable
violence. ---- These attacks have an unequivocal political significance: the
hatred of the self-organization of workers in trade union organizations. This
contempt for the tools, certainly always imperfect, forged by our class to build
class consciousness through struggles appears to us to be a strategic error.
Political differences exist in our camp on the organization of the proletariat.
But here it is something else in question. Physically attacking, injuring,
mutilating workers guilty of organizing to fight against their exploiters is a
characteristic feature of the extreme right and directly serves the interests of
our class enemies: the state and the bourgeoisie.
Those who attacked the CGT the 1 stMay are, whether they realize it or not,
accomplices of power. Unfortunately, this is not the first time that the union
procession has been the target of this kind of aggression. During the
demonstration against the "comprehensive security " lawand the reform of
unemployment insurance on December 5, 2020, fellow trade unionists had already
warned about this kind of practice .
The insults uttered in Paris and Lyon, sexist, racist and homophobic, against the
activists of the CGT who ensured the serenity of his procession are intolerable.
The nature of the attack and the insults that accompanied it put those
responsible for it on a different camp than ours. Individuals and collectives who
claim political autonomy must denounce these unacceptable events. For years,
their propaganda has indeed contributed to devalue the trade union tool. It
should not now be the justification for this kind of aggression.
These attacks against activists and trade union organizations are, like those of
the police to which we are unfortunately more accustomed, attacks against our
class and must therefore be treated as such.
Libertarian Communist Union, May 2, 2021.
 Cops in front, assailants in the back: the demonstration of December 5 as
experienced in the union procession , published by libertarian communists
unionized with the CGT and Solidaires on the Paris-Luttes site.
