March 8: For a revolutionary proletarian feminism!

We women in today’s world are still sexually harassed (in the street and at work); Raped, beaten and abused by our spouses, by our relatives or by our bosses; sometimes without daring to denounce our rapists since it is obviously “our fault”; our bodies are reduced to the state of commodites; we face unpaid work, domestic work; for an equal work, our wages are not. Patriarchy was born with class society, which oppressed both semi-feudal, semi-colonial countries with feudal traditions and modern imperialist countries with capitalist exploitation with the transformation of the body into commodities.

State of emergency: Trial of a Maoist worker in Clermont-Ferrand!

As he was leaving the town hall of Clermont-Ferrand following the mobilization in front of the municipal council, a comrade was arrested by the police. He tried without success to take refuge in the bar close to the town hall.

The cops waited him for him in two cars, one on each side of the street of the town hall. Why did they arrest him? They claimed that he would was “wanted”. (more…)

Pierre Overney, always present in our struggles!

affiche overney 2016pcmTribute to Pierre Overney at Père Lachaise Cemetery on SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 11 AM. Meeting point at the station Père Lachaise (line 2) at 11am.

44 years ago, on February 26, 1972, Pierre Overney, a Maoist worker and activist of Gauche Prolétarienne, was shot in front of the Renault Billancourt factory. In the midst of a wave of racist crimes of that time, he was distributing a leaflet for an antifascist demonstration at Charonne metro station in commemoration of the protest repressed in blood by police 10 years earlier.

La Cause du Peuple, which announced his death, pushed the slogan “Stop Fascism ! “and denounced the killings of Arab workers. The parallel with current events is striking. In Calais, the fascist militias, hand in hand with the cops, attack migrants fleeing those countries, in which the imperialists, including France, have wreaked havoc and set fire to consolidate their domination. Last year, Rémi Fraisse was killed by government watchdogs. Cops murder in the suburbs, multiply provocations and humiliations. Our neighbours’ doors are smashed for no reason. The climate of the Emergency State opens the doors to repression. The State, at the service of the bourgeoisie and the bosses, breaks into the homes of trade unionists at 6am and hands out prison sentences to workers struggling to keep their jobs. With 7 million unemployed, we are still told that we are lazy and cared for by the government as we struggle to find work. That’s when Myriam El Khomri, Minister of Labour [sic], proposes an anti-worker bill. which transcends every other one introduced in the past since the CPE. The government desires to serve the bosses to such a degree that it is willing to impose it even without a vote in parliament according to Article 49.3. (more…)

The El Khomri Law: A New Attack on Workers!

For a long time now we’ve known that the Socialist Party (PS) government is totally subservient to the interests of the bourgeoisie; since its taking power the reactionary offensive of the bourgeoisie has only intensified. After the National Interprofessional Agreement (ANI), the “Responsibility” pact and the Macron Law, the announcement of the El Khomri bill rings out as a new and even greater attack on workers’ rights. Employers are not calling out favorably for nothing after the announcement by the minister of his project to reform the labor code. (more…)

Meeting for the Liberation of Georges Abdallah – Saturday, March 19th

Saturday, March 19th at 7 pm, CICP 21 rue Voltaire 75011 Paris

FREEDOM FOR GEORGES ABDALLAH!

HE IS PART OF OUR STRUGGLE! WE ARE PART OF HIS BATTLE!

The year 2015 was a year in which the civilian population in metropolitan France suffered massacre attacks. The French State used this particular situation to intensify its repressive system internally and its military system externally.

Our response to this extraordinary situation must be the convergence of resistance implying: the fight against imperialism and state terrorism (especially that of the Zionist state); against state violence (military, police, administrative), state racism, repression and fascisation of the state in general, directed against peoples and the popular classes of districts in particular; fight for the just and legitimate right to revolt and emancipation; fight for the liberation of revolutionary political prisoners.
