Austerity, Austerity, Austerity


The triple-A, totem of the bourgeoisie, nothing less than the symbol of the war that Capital is carrying our on us. And it is in the name of its reconquest that we are being promised new austerity plans!

It is done. Standard & Poor's has downgraded France.

No more triple A! Yet it was for the sake of protecting us from this "note" that the government had stepped up its attacks on the workers by imposing two separate austerity plans. A triple A which has in fact only one meaning for workers: Austerity, Austerity and more Austerity.

What can one say about the "Social Summit" on 18 January which brought together the State, the bosses and the CGT, CFDT, FO, CFTC and CGC trade unions? It was only a masquerade of alleged dialogue between "partners". We have no interest in common with those who profit from our work!

At a time when there are 5 million unemployed and 3 and a half million precarious workers, for trade unions to prefer the gilding of the Élysée Palace to labour mobilizations says it all with regard to the moribund state of the "big" confederations. The "radical" camp - made up of Solidaires, certain combative sectors of the CGT and the FSU - are trying to rebuild a real social re-mobilization.

There can be no doubt that we do indeed need to trace out the path of struggle. Step by step, even.

textThe Gaz de France-Suez merger 17:33 Thu 06 Sep by Alternative Libertaire 0 comments

The planned merger of French energy firms Gaz de France (GdF) and Suez has been kick-started again by the French government. The privatization of GdF is thus well and truly on the way, contrary to what Nicolas Sarkozy had announced in 2004. This government is completely at the service of the French employers federation, the Medef, and it is to the Medef alone that it keeps its promises.

imageThe useful myth of "chancers" (workers on sick leave, the unemployed...) Nov 29 by Boris 0 comments

Sarkozy the candidate and the UMP (Union for a Popular Movement) had guaranteed that they would have no trouble in attacking all those who dared to abuse the French social welfare system. A promise made is a promise to be kept: in these times of economic crisis it is now a priority to act against workers on sick leave and the unemployed. [Français]

imageAnti-retirement pension reform in France Oct 29 by Cuervo 1 comments

The battle against the pension reform started 6 months ago, came to an apex during the last 2 months, and according to the government is winding down.
We still don't want that reform, and the fight is not over, but has reached a new phase. The "getting rough" phase most likely.
