“Africa’s time of slavery to Western regimes is over, and the battle for full independence has begun”.- Ibrahim Traore (President of the Transition of Burkina Faso)
Statement opposing military intervention in Niger by France backed by the US or its proxies in ECOWAS.
All France’s parties of the right in France support austerity and are whipping up racism to divide the resistance to this attack. Authoritarianism is increasing to repress the resistance. The left needs to oppose this carnival of reaction.
The class struggle in France is intensifying. Millions have mobilised against Macron raising the retirement age from 62 to 64. The LFI is linking the mass struggle to the parliamentary battle.
Huge mobilisations, against Macron’s proposed raising of the retirement age, are taking place across France. Millions of people have taken to the streets and are continuing to do do. It is an inspiring struggle to follow closely, support, and emulate.
The oppression of France’s undocumented migrant population ensures a supply of cheap labour for capital to exploit. In response to this racism and super-exploitation the Sans Papiers have launched a wave of struggles and achieved some victories, and continue to fight back.
