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.
In the coming weeks, the temperature of the race to be president will rise as potential candidates announce their wish to run in party primaries or as independent candidates.
As things stand, the left will not make the second round without unity behind one candidate.
In advance of next year’s French presidential election, Macron has significantly stepped up the racist offensive – mainly Islamophobia. This is helping boost support for the far-right, – which he hopes to face in the second round of the election.
Macron’s government has expelled hundreds of Muslims from France, placed controls on Mosques and banned the Collective Against Islamophobia. Islamophobia is being whipped up in parallel with increased economic attacks on the population, which follow on from France’s policy not being to eliminate Covid-19.
Unite against Islamophobia and racism, oppose Macron’s attacks
