During the protests that have shaken the sterile “Gaullist order” the people have become aware of the immense force they represent, while at the same time assessing the real weakness of the state.
10 years of the Gaullist regime have proven to the total ineffectiveness of traditional forms of struggle.
The bosses and the government are stunned. Panic-sticken Capitalism entreats the “representative leadership” of the working class to take things in hand.
It knows that in times of profound social crisis the reformist leadership are the best and ultimate bulwark of the regime.
In the trap of their negotiations, these leaders divert workers from total victory in favor of interim financial benefits quickly offset by the increased cost of living.
The workers and students do not want their fight to end up like the movements of 1936 and 1945.
It must go all the way. WE HAVE OCCUPIED THE FACULTIES, THE ADMINISTRATIONS , THE FACTORIES …
we will stay there
Let us make them function by us and for us, showing that workers’ management has the ability make things better for all, rather than the benefit of the few that the capitalists scandalously used them for.
Do not let the bourgeois politicians or the social democrats negotiate a return to order with a sitting cabinet.
We insist on the departure of De Gaulle and the creation of a workers’ government. The state which we want must institute direct democracy within a socialist framework, established through the directions of grass-roots committees.
These committees will have the duty to ensure its effective implementation.
WE WON’T FALL INTO THE TRAP OF FUTILE DISCUSSIONS
power is to be taken
