In stock of the coordination of workers and precarious in struggle in Paris and the project of demonstration against precarity, unemployment, lay off, and sufferance at work that we plan in december 1. We would like to propose you to make it international.
About the coordination:
We took the initiative to create it with people from other networks, like association of workers in struggle against lay off, unionists, (associations of) unemployed people, etc. We did it with the help of Niel, inspired by the coordination of workers’ struggle in Barcelona. This coordination is independant from the assembly of Paris because we wanted to create somthing new that would fully involved other networks and workers in struggle who are not in the assembly of Paris but would be interested in working with horizontal methodology. However there is a lot of indignés in the coordination and we make regular reports to the assembly of Paris who has given strong support to different projects of the coordination (actually the assembly of Paris is the strongest support to this project). They were two meetings of this coordination in April and June, where we had concrete discussions about local and specific struggles to exchange and spread informations, petitions, invitations to gathering… We organised an assembly after the demonstration of May 1st, we now organise a gathering with pans at the social conference with the government and unions (July 9th) and we have this project of demonstration in december.
About the project of demonstration:
As I told you on mumble, we work on a demonstration that would make converge three corteges of 1/ unemployed-precarious,2/ wagers in struggle against lay off, and 3/ civil servants (against state reforms, precarity of some civil servants who have private work contracts). There will be an assembly at the end of the demonstrations on the place where they will converge. The assembly will be very important because it will be the democratic moment when people will gather and be able to speak and organise as individuals on transverse issues.
The organisations against unemployment who organise every year (in december) a demonstration against unemployment agree to be part of the project (they widen their usual demonstration), and they propose december 1. We are expecting answers of associations of workers in struggle for the cortege against lay off and we are discussion with unions for the cortege of civil servants (I am myself a civil servant).
We would like to internationalise this mobilisation against precarity, unemployment, lay off, and state reforms, so can you see in your assemblies if there is a consensus about this project ? Can you give me contacts of people in your assemblies who work on such issues ? It would be interesting if there is a convergence at the international level as precarity, unemployment and sufferance at work (in private and public sectors) are connected also with european and international treaties that put people in competition. Maybe we could make a specific mumble meeting on this issue.
To give you a more precise idea of our work i send you the translations of the meeting of our first meeting in April (French, English, Spanish, Italian, German). I will send you the translation of our second meeting (here in french : http://

Please do not hesistate if you have any questions.
Thanks in advance !
