Arles: A May 1st whistleblower against the far right

Neither guardians, nor Queen of Arles but demonstrators. There are still traditions that the rain was not enough to hinder. On this international day of mobilization of workers and their unions, the trend was towards clarification. On the international situation, first. And in Gaza in particular. “The numerous mobilizations all over the world (…) against what the International Court of Justice has described as a risk of genocide must increase to force the far-right Israeli government to immediately cease its military action“, intimate Nicolas Bourcy, general secretary of the local CGT union in Arles. Without forgetting the war in Ukraine for which “military aid by the billions is emptying the wallets of employees, retirees and the unemployed“. An internationalist and pacifist line joined by the FSU union, represented by Anne-Sophie Sidani, Spanish professor at Morel college, who pleads “for a just and lasting peace within the framework of international law“.

The main national education union, the FSU, has also reaffirmed its “choice to defend the public education service from austerity“A visibly selective austerity as Anne-Sophie Sidani seems to insinuate: “Like companies which benefit from billions of euros in unrequited public aid, French private schools do indeed benefit from public subsidies with great opacity in the financing of these establishments.“Clarification again, while the polls give the list of Jordan Bardella at the top of the European election of June 9, to recall some of the emblematic votes of the National Rally (formerly FN) in the European and French parliaments. Particularly on rights of women and the secretary of the CGT to list the votes of the Lepéniste party: “against the demand for equal pay between women and men“, “against the plan to combat sexist and sexual violence within institutions“, abstention “in terms of combating sexual harassment“, refusal “to condemn the ban on abortion in Poland“…For Nicolas Bourcy, “far-right MPs refuse any societal progress for gender equality“. But not only : “against the taxation of super profits, large fortunes and capital gains, against the European minimum income, against the increase in the minimum wage, against the indexation of wages to inflation“… In summary, “they are all enemies of workers“.
