1,000 Injured – 3 Dead – CS Gas

“LET’S GATHER OURSELVES AND TOMORROW…”

WHY?
Because students refuse to become management cadres, accessories to and profiteers from the exploitation of workers.
Because they reject the so-called “dialogue” which only reflects decisions already taken in high places.
When this rejection changes from words into action (occupation of lecture rooms, showing banned political films, boycotting of exams, etc…)
When for workers this rejection has but one means of expression:
VIOLENCE.

The bourgeois State has onIy one answer:
REPRESSION:

Blackmail via grants,
Threats of expulsion,
Blacklists
Interventions by cops in university premises
massive arrests
imprisonments
Threats of dismissal for workers.

WE DENOUNCE:

The decision to re-open the faculties with the sole aim of having exams taken. We do not want to be capital’s watchdogs.
The diversion of a worldwide movement of confrontation, by the usual bureaucratic devices, into a reformist movement fitting the framework of the imperialism of the bourgeois university.

LET US TAKE ACTION:
Let us reject the normal functioning of the university until foreign students and workers are freed. From today masses of students will occupy university premises in order to impose on it:

THE POWER OF POLITICAL CONFRONTATION
THE IMMEDIATE LIFTING OF SANCTIONS AGAINST ALL THOSE STILL THREATENED WITH PENAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE MEASURES

WE WILL NOT GIVE WAY TO BLACKMAIL.

(page 2)

– Let us not be divided, faced with an escalation of repression, let us oppose it steadfastly.
– Let us organize in order to carry on the battle in our own neighbourhoods and places of work.

WE WILL DEMONSTRATE FRIDAY 10 MAY AT 10:30AM PLACE DENFERT ROCHEREAU

“LET’S GATHER OURSELVES AND TOMORROW…”
