Des anarchistes redécorent l’ancien Omer De Serres de Saint-Roch

==> Quelques photos

Québec, 17 juillet 2008 – Aujourd’hui, des membres du Collectif anarchiste La Nuit (NEFAC-Québec) sont alléEs placarder les vitrines de l’ancien magasin Omer De Serres de Saint-Roch en solidarité avec 180 salariéEs de DeSerres France récemment mis-à-pied.

C’est suite à une demande de solidarité de la section parisienne de la CNT (Confédération nationale du travail, anarcho-syndicaliste) chez De Serres France que les libertaires québécois ont posé ce geste. Face à la mondialisation néolibérale, la solidarité internationale doit être une pratique vivante et concrète. Nous ne pouvions passer sous silence les agissements anti-sociaux d’un patron bien de chez-nous et rester sourdEs aux appels de nos camarades d’outre-atlantique.

A CANADIAN SHARK IN FRANCE

==> VERSION FRANÇAISE

Our comrades of the CNT have just contacted us about the actions of a shark from our own country.

Briefly, M. Marc DeSerres, the owner of Omer DeSerres has acquired a French company, Artacréa SA, to get a foot in the door in the old country. But the gentleman announced on last July 2 to members of the Enterprise Committee that he isn’t depositing a single cent of cash into the company accounts. Specifically, as summer is the slack time, it means the dismissal of approximately 180 employees (not counting the spillover effects on suppliers).

The CNT demands that Mr. DeSerres pay to each employee who was dismissed compensation for material and moral damages. It also asks us to disseminate information in Canada.

For more information, download the english version of the leaflet the CNT is distributing in Paris.

Un requin québécois en France

==> ENGLISH VERSION

Nos camarades de la CNT viennent de nous contacter au sujet des agissements d'un requin bien de chez-nous: M. Marc DeSerres.

Brièvement, le propriétaire d'Omer DeSerres s'est porté acquéreur d'une compagnie française, Artacréa SA, pour se faire un pied-à-terre dans les vieux pays. Or, le monsieur a annoncé le 2 juillet dernier aux membres du Comité d'entreprise qu'il n'injecterait pas une cenne dans la trésorerie de l'entreprise. Concrètement, comme l'été est la période creuse, ça signifie le licenciement d'environ 180 salariés (sans compter les effets en cascade sur les fournisseurs).

La CNT exige que M. DeSerres verse à chaque salarié licencié une indemnité de dédommagement matériel et moral. Elle nous demande aussi de diffuser l'information au Québec.

Prefigurative Organization: Kim Keyser Speaking Tour

Kim Keyser is an activist from the nascent anarchist movement in Norway - the so-called "social democratic paradise" in Northern Europe. This summer he'll be touring the US with an illustrated presentation called "The Prefigurative Organization". The presentation will try to answer the question "How can we reflect the future we want, in our present work?". It will touch upon subjects such as direct democracy, direct action, workers councils, anarchist organizing and involvement in social movements.A complementing pamphlet called "The Prefigurative Organization" - which has been made specifically for the speaking tour - will be available.After the presentation there will be a possibility to ask the speaker specific questions, followed by plenty of time for discussions in small groups.

Review of the talk by the Richmond Libertarian Left Alliance

Photo-reportage: Pas d'armée dans nos cités!

Le 3 juillet dernier, l'armée organisait un grandiose défilé militaire à Québec. S'était sans compter sur la vigilance des antimilitaristes. Malgré une pluie diluvienne, près de 500 personnes ont répondu à l'appel de Guerre à la guerre et ont manifestés pour perturber le défilé. Le seul fait que les autorités soient obligées de déployer l'anti-émeute pour permettre à l'armée de défiler dans les rues est une victoire morale pour les manifestantEs.

Decision Making in the Shell of the Old Society

Review of Kim Keyser's "Prefigurative Organizaiton" speaking tour, by Jeremy of the Richmond Left Libertarian Alliance.

On Thursday I attended the talk of a Norwegian anarchist, Kim Keyser, who explored the topic of decision making structures within anarchist organizations. Entitled “The Prefigurative Organization”, Keyser did an admirable job of presenting a number of outside-the-box ideas by which anarchists could realize a powerful yet directly democratic movement. We learned a lot, not only as a result of the talk but also by the open and dialogue-oriented manner in which the meeting was conducted.

Aramark Workers Strike at Boston’s Convention Centers

On June 21st, hundreds of food service workers initiated a strike against the Philadelphia-based Food Service company, Aramark, walking off the job and picketing at Boston’s two biggest convention centers: the Hynes Convention Center (HCC) and the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center (BCEC). 350 food workers at the two convention centers, members of Unite Here Local 26, have been without a contract since October, and the company called off all negotiations in May.
