The ERF is a tradition, a place of joy but also exchange: one of the few public spaces

various projects of '' revitalization '' of public spaces such as the mega project of '' Jardins Gamelins '' which was used to set up a system of social apartheid by forcibly removing access to Place Émilie-Gamelin from homeless people who have always stayed there.

So that's why we took the street, for those who live there, work there and it was heart.
This is also why we believe that as members of the IWW-SITT we must build bridges
strong with all those who struggle daily to ensure the health and safety of
population stigmatized by capitalist governments, bankers, the bosses and the rich

Call for strike on May 1 2015

A specter is haunting Quebec. this spectrum, it is the general strike. Since that time 2012, our elites know that the working class, the students, and all those that injustice and repression are not indifferent yet, may take to the streets and impose their legitimacy facing the State. But despite this dread, the apostles of capitalism, and particularly his liberal vision, cannot help but wage an open war against everything that is not a commodity, against anything that is not financially valuable. From budget cuts to police over-arming, from our underpaid jobs to public insults against the poor and the exploited, everything leads us to believe that Quebec has been blighted by unbridled capitalism. This neo-liberal paradise, protected by the state and its henchmen, ruin our daily life and that of our loved ones, willfully tramples on the remnants of our freedom, spits in the faces of the most destitute and of a misery that he himself has engendered. We long ago stopped believing in the regulatory capacity of this system. By self-destructing, he will lead us all simultaneously in his wake. Every day we experience new reminders of this planned failure: environmental disasters, rising inequalities, deterioration of working conditions, institutional racism, systemic corruption of our political system, harassment of women in their workplaces or at university ... In general, these are all forms of dominations that are increasing dangerously, pushing the exploited and dominated of our society to their limits, to install our elites on a pedestal far too comfortable.

This is why we call the rebels to the insurgency. We hope this spring will see all the rabid ones, all those who dislike this system, in the streets and in action. Because apathy is not for us, we strongly believe in our common ability to create a better world. Beyond a simple one-off fight against austerity, we see in the distance the premises of a social war, including the strike of 2012 was just the beginning. Successive and repetitive governments, from right to left, have been trying for too long to impose on us their deadly conception of the economy, and more broadly from society. A single day of strike is not enough to roll back a government that protects the financial interests of the dominant. We believe that a global revolt of the whole of society must emerge this spring. This revolt must take place on the long term : in Quebec as in Europe, too many examples of recent social movements have proven the uselessness of ad hoc actions against governments now accustomed and prepared for social discontent.

Against capitalism and liberalism, we reaffirm our right to manage our own lives, whether or not it suits those who lead us. Our daily life is ours, our cities are ours. We firmly believe that capitalism must be banned from Quebec. For that, we will always show solidarity with those who fight, but forever unsympathetic in the eyes of the resigned and prostrate. We will be alongside workers and students in struggle, and we will oppose police brutality with proletarian solidarity. In the street, in the workplace and study, in our neighborhoods, we are here to support and help you.

Let’s not be afraid of our utopias.

Dare to fight to overthrow the established order.

student revolt in Britain

En Grande-Bretagne, les coupures annoncées par l’État dans les services publics sont les pires depuis l’ère Thatcher, alors qu’il y a à peine deux ans l’État avait les moyens de donner mille milliards de livres (about 1500 milliard de dollars) au renflouement des banques Anglaises.

Ces coupures seront spectaculaires: near 25% des dépenses publiques seront coupées, 500 000 emplois dans le secteur public seront abolis, 40% du financement des universités sera supprimé, l’aide sociale sera sévèrement réduite, l’aide au logement sera décimée, 28% de l’aide aux municipalités localesqui assument des services aussi divers que l’éducation primaire et la collecte des orduressera coupée. Le tout alors que l’État prévoit encore aider les banques, qui ont versées cette année des primes de 7 milliards de livres (10,5 billions of dollars) à leurs dirigeants, ainsi que de réduire les taxes et les impôts pour les riches. C’est dans ce contexte que se développe une contestation étudiante importante, alors que la Grande-Bretagne n’est pas particulièrement connue pour la combativité de son mouvement étudiant.

Les informations suivantes ont été recueillies par la Solidarity Federation Britannique, une organisation syndicaliste révolutionnaire.
