La Nupes is already thinking about the post-October 16
Actions in Marseille and Toulouse on Saturday October 15 and a march between Place de la Nation and Place de la Bastille in Paris on Sunday October 16 at 2 p.m. The Nupes parties (with the exception of the PS, whose representative was « Excused for personal reasons ») officially kicked off the march against the high cost of living on Monday, after several weeks of consultation. If the big trade union centers do not call for it, were still present at the press conference of the CGT federations such as that of work, employment and vocational training or that of commerce. In addition, announced the rebellious deputy Aurélie Trouvou, an appeal from 700 trade unionists in favor of this march was to be published in stride. It follows the support of 60 personalities, including the Nobel Prize for Literature Annie Ernaux, published by the JDD the day before.
The objective of this day is to “stop the neoliberal steamroller of Macronie”, says Aurélie Trouvé. Citing the strong union mobilization of September 29, with a million strikers, the MP underlines that the march of September 16 is an extension of it. And the goal is to expand, even to make it a step towards much stronger social mobilizations. For the NPA, Olivier Besancenot even foresees that “This collective social movement that we have been waiting for for years will perhaps arrive sooner than expected. We should be taken seriously. ». At EELV, Hélène Hardy denounces “a system out of breath” and that « destroyed under the guise of growth ».
In addition, faced with attacks against strikers in the oil sector, the president of the rebellious group in the Assembly, Mathilde Panot, castigated Macronie. “Those who prevent people from living and moving around are the government, which has refused to raise wages, tax profits and freeze prices”, launched the elected representative of Val-de-Marne. If this day of mobilization is successful, the rebellious, who had launched the initial appeal, hope that it will find extensions. “On the post-October 16, once passed, we will see how to project ourselves. We already have ideas in mind”affirms Aurélie Trouvé. “We hope that October 16 will mark an even greater start”, also underlined Gérard Filoche for the Democratic and Social Left. On the PCF side, Igor Zamichiei announced that the Communists would support « any date decided by the inter-union to defeat the pension reform ».
