News from France about Creation of New Syndicalist Organisation
international | worker & community struggles and protests | press release Tuesday November 20, 2012 19:52 by CNT Solidarité Ouvrière contact at cnt-so dot org
Creation of a new syndicalist organisation in France.
Address to militant CNT activists and sympathizers.
Unfortunately, the wild hopes of its beginnings rapidly came up against Reality. Extremist groupuscule activities, personal hatreds and rigid ideological viewpoints soon reduced the CNT to a near stand still. From the 50's on, CNT activity completely disappeared from the political and syndical scene. However, the ongoing assiduity of a handful of comrades maintained the CNT and gave it a new lease of life in 1968 which then flourished in the '90's. A new generation joined the older ones and the CNT made a new and thunderous entry into the arena of class struggles. Bosses, bureaucratic union leaders and professional politicians warily watched as the organization left the ghettos to become a real counterforce. What would happen, against all odds, if the CNT really became a mass organization if not capable of overthrowing the existing order at least capable of menacing it ?
