    Aperiodic Mixed political news

    France/Fashs: On the 4th of May, a comrade from the FA (Anarchist Federation) working in the anarchist bookstore Publico in Paris has been grievously hurt by a knife attack that was explicitly targeting the FA. It would appear the comrade is still shocked but his life isn't threatened. France/Yellow Jackets/Repression/1rst of May: The french mainstream medias are all about the polemics on Castaner lies about the Pitié-Salpétrière hospital refuge-seekers called "intruders" after having been called "attackers" on the 1rst of May (a march rather than a protest usually! The kind where you take your kids!). We shall remember who is Castaner's ally on this hospital affair: Martin Hirsh, former Sarkozy minister. We shall also recall that before being president, Sarkozy at Castaner's place, the Interior minister, called the cops Minister, and his period is rememembered to have given birth to several mistreatment of people by the police, who could say "we can do what we want, we are protected", partly thanks to the use of the law: outrage and rebellion have since then skyrocketed - every time a police officer is suspected to have used violence, he would attack in court the victim for "outrage" or "rebellion". Note again who was the political godfather of Sarkozy: Charles Pasqua, the shadow man of the SAC, service d'Action Civique, reknown for several murders, arsons, torture of leftists, for bank robberies. Pasqua was the man behind the "voltigeurs", the quick response police unit responsible for Malik Oussekine's death, unit banned for years and that has returned... under Macron. This scenery can then explain the following: On the first of May, those who were blocking the access to public health was... the police in Toulouse, forcing ambulance to make a U-turn rather than saving lives... the police in Paris, attacking in court a disable woman for a scene where a policeman toying with a wheelchair against its disabled owner's will launched it against a police wagon. She's prosecuted for assault with weaponry (the weapon being the wheelchair!) against the police. Another upside-down affair took place in March in Nizza, where a 50 year old peace-flag-waving woman has been battered. She partly lost conscious and several senses (seeing, audition, balance) and is now prosecuting the police, after tries to falsify her testimony by sending 6 police officers to her hospital bed and accusing a journalist of the deed, then forbidding the room to the press. She has been pu under the spotlights after Macron said about her " “When your are fragile, when you can get easily shocked, you don't go to forbidden places, and you don't put yourself in such situations.The government still says the police did was nothing, like it's said about the death of Zineb Redouane in her appartment following a teargas shot, after she declined an invitation in order to avoid danger! France/Work/unions: Ten years ago, the country was shaken by the chain suicide of France Telecom workers (several of them on their workplace), the former state phone operator just recently privatized. It could be a big progress for unionism, the process is now pending about the responsibility of the firm in the deaths and deaths tries of 40 persons, prosecuted for " moral harassment organized by its leaders at the scale of the enterprise» . The CEO Didier Lombard was a cost killer known for the formula: "through the door or through the window". The usual liberal mantra is still followed by the CEO: "sad" for those who died "because they couldn't support the change", the enterprise met a "media crisis", not a social one... Back in 2009, he said suicide was "trendy".

    SO, I promised a while ago to do a bimonthly post about actuality (mainly) from France. It was apparently not meant to be true, so here I go with a first one for this aperiodic tribune. Feel free to discuss it under, or to add your own batch of news! As I'm quite sure I can't manage to have one whole hour to do it properly, I will add bit after bit. France/Education branch: Begin april, was a strike in the whole school system, from preschool to high school. From 30% to 70% of striking people, depending on the place.Goal: protest against eductaion minister Blanquer to continue the strategy of sabotage of te public education in favour of the private one: rural school closings, primary schools now having an chef in Junior high principals. Former system was based on a sort of self-management, with one of the teacher (unelected) having a few hours less each week in order to manage the school. Anarchists and unionists like Ferrer and Freinet were the base of the pedagogy, and they also are from a self-management tradition. Schools are subsumed to cities, while junior highs depends of the department (sub-regional unit with sub assembly and delegates at the national assembly). The highschools were all teaching the same subjects. Now it's going to be different from one tot another, meaning a baccalauréat from one won't be as good as one from an another, + you can be sure science teachings will be favored in bourgeois centers (reproduction of the means of production as said Lefèvre). Instigation of a law forbidding teachers to criticize publicly, even out of school, any reform of the government. France/Education short news: -3 unionists from a popular Junior school in Bobigny have been sanctioned to have criticized the government politics (and that before the reform). A collective net supports them. -First united inter-union forum for struggle against racism will take place at may 18th at the parisian Bourse du travail, appealed in march by 85 unionists from SUD, CGT, FSU... France/Health branch: Strike in Nantes in private hospital Confluence: on april 1rst were more than 650 health workers striking -more than the half. The strike has continued for 10 days, and 700 strikers went through the streets of the city. The point was that the hospital is sold by the 160 shareholders-doctors for 220 m Euros, of which the workers claiment better conditions, better salaries, 4% of the sale. One of the capitalists argued that "when you sale your house, you don't the housemaid a share". The strike has now descalated to a "zeal strike" (I don't know if it's the proper translation, it means that people strictly apply rules rather than doing their possible to make things function), but the almost self-managed struggle has reinforced the cohesion and solidarity among the workers

    I consider again the officer, and have conscience that the thin ice of her patience could melt pretty soon in such a burnt-in station, speaking of which, exercise or such classes haven't been spoken of. "Sorry to add bother to the injury, aunt, but since you talked to us about our goal, how will we be best used for the glory of the people? Are we to be trained there or in between, or will people's army rely on this fisherman's and my instincts to adapt? " @Varsala @Countriopia

    To the officer: "I guess it's a comfort to know that he will be in place where he will eat enough to become the strong soldier he may have destined to be, aunt. But since you told us he won't come with us, I get that we have an already precise goal for this cart to go. Do you know when we will be briefed about it? To me, nothing beats preparedness. I must concede that I'm pretty curious of what special thing a bunch of rookies like me and the comrade fisherman can and will do."

    As the boy continues walking, listening to the fisherman's tales, I check the surroundings. Then I lock my look on the officer when she's not looking. To the officer. "Today is the time to reclaim our grilled grain from the Yiimarans, aunt. They grilled it too long and it tastes bitter. But it's still ours, aunt. We can still decide to eat it, give it to buffaloes, or even grill it longer to make polymers out of it. It's time to save our brothers and sisters and reclaim the the revolution for its own sake and for ours and for theirs. This small brother here hasn't grilled now. It could still belong to the upland, or maybe the farther paddies. Do you think the harvest would be better in a year or two?"

    I turn toward the soldier who wanted to give a meat can: "Don't be too sad, uncle. This woman may not live another monsoon, but you know the burnt earth will give more fruits to her grandchildren as soon as we regain their lands again. The river will take care of the burnt soil, and we the people will take care of the dead and the living." To the boy: "Big brother, our grand-mother has a strong spirit. Our soil will give her strength here or in the next here. You want to fight, and are fiery. You have a big stick. There are things to eat out there when you have a stick. Walk with us for a mile and I'll tell you what I know about sticks and hidden food. Food can never hide enough from a stick and a boy who has seen truly what a stick can do."

  15. So I've open this book by Alain Bihr, and I'm going to do a reading + notes here. I think there are really slight chances that I'll find anyone reading in the same language so better try my hand at noting, and being open for discussion/explanation here. First of all, this book is a following of his "Prehistory of capitalism: the becoming world of capitalism". So I might put a note or two about his first, once I get my hand on my copy again. About methodology. I will post one post for each chapter/part of the book I'm reading and update the post by editing it as I go. I'll start every editing with a [edit n] tag, so to make sure if it's corrected you can see it. If there are too much edits, I will favour new paragraphs rather than correcting sentences. I'll write my personal commentary in violet. The discussion if it happens will follow on separated posts, as well for answering questions as for asking them (what is a comment and not commentary to me) About the subject of the book and the author, so you know if it may interests you: It is the first tome of a series about this "first age of capitalism". This tome is about the western European expansion directed toward American, African and Asian continents, how their productive structures, traditional political powers, exchange circuits have been altered toward the dynamic of formation of the capitalism in Europe, and how they resisted. The two next tomes should treat of rivalries and conflicts of the would-be nationalist capitalists European states. Alain Bihr is a french sociologist, former high school philosophy teacher and university anthropology and sociology researcher.He is (re)known for his studies of the french far right, men/women inequalities and capitalism. He has published for french speaking trotskists, grassroot anticapitalisst, catholic radical leftists, leftcoms, ancoms, postleftists and syndicalists editions. A quote of his adress "to [his] anarchists comrades":
