(Translation – Fisera 23)

FOR THE CREATION OF THE
REVOLUTIONARY YOUTH ORGANISATION

MEN AND WOMEN WORKERS

YOUNG PEOPLE – SCHOOL STUDENTS – APPRENTICES

– STUDENTS –

    For the first time since 1940 a vice-chancellor has dared to call the police into the university!

    Only the Gestapo and Pétain, in their time, closed down the Sorbonne.
 MEN AND WOMEN WORKERS, YOUNG PEOPLE, SCHOOL STUDENTS, UNIVERSITY STUDENTS, APPRENTICES,
    the freedom of the university is an integral part of democratic freedom and workers’ freedom. 

 THEY ARE LYING TO YOU , when they tell you students want to defend their privileges. 

OUR FREEDOM ARE ALSO YOURS

    If the bourgeoisie wipe out our freedoms, they are also wiping out yours.

 WHY ARE STUDENTS FIGHTING? 

    The Ministry and the Government want to expel from the university 2/3 of the students whom the Gaullist vice-chancellor has described as “scum”. 

 MEN AND WOMEN WORKERS, YOUNG PEOPLE, SCHOOL STUDENTS, STUDENTS APPRENTICES,
 THE FER SAYS: 

    In order to ensure the survival of the profit régime, the bourgeoisie and the state have established a whoIe series of structures aiming to impose unemployment and dismissals, the end of Social Security and pension schemes, to destroy workers’ organisations and freedoms.                       

 FOR CAPITAL AND ITS STATE
    – There are too many workers in the factories,
    – There are too many office employees, 
    – There are too many peasants,
    – There are too many schoolchildren in the schools, too many apprentices in the technical colleges, too many students in the universities!

—–

The students say NO! 

    to selection, to repression, as the CAEN workers said no on 26 January, whilst fighting against unemployment and sackings.

  This is why at Nanterre, at Halle-aux-Vins, at Censier and at the Sorbonne, gardes mobiles, guards helmeted, with shields, clubs, rifles, and tear-gas grenades, savagely attacked male and female workers who were demonstrating FOR FREEDOM, FOR THE RIGHT TO STUDY, FOR THE RIGHT TO LIVE.  

 MEN AND WOMEN WORKERS, YOUNG PEOPLE, SCHOOL STUDENTS, STUDENTS APPRENTICES,
THE STUDENTS FIGHT IS YOURS TOO

 In solidarity, students, lecturers, pupils’ parents, young people, ALL ORGANISATIONS UNITED

  CAN MAKE THE GOVERNMENT STAND DOWN 

 We, the revolutionary students of the Federation of Revolutionary Students, have proposed the following objective to our trade-union organisation, UNEF: 

  A GENERAL STRIKE OF STUDENTS AND TEACHERS, for the respect of freedoms, against sanctions, against police despotism in the university.

We, the revolutionary students of the FER, stand
– against the expulsion of students from the university                    
– for the right to study
– against unemployment
– for the defence of university, democratic and workers’ freedoms.

WE ASK ALL MEN AND WOMEN WORKERS to impose on their managers:

A CENTRAL DEMONSTRATION OF WORKERS, YOUNG PEOPLE AND STUDENTS

MEN AND WOMEN WORKERS, it depends on us, and we shall accept our responsibilities, it depends on you, and you will accept your responsibilities so that resolutely, in a united battle, our legitimate demands will be satisfied.

THE DESTINY OF YOUNG PEOPLE IS TO BE DECIDED.
THE DESTINY OF YOUR CHILDREN IS TO BE DECIDED.
YOUR FUTURE IS TO BE DECIDED.

EVERYBODY TO THE RALLY OF THE F.E.R., FRIDAY MAY 10, at 8:30 p.m. ,


        At the Mutualité.
