ABOUT THE STRIKE OF UNEMPLOYED PEOPLE
The ANPE (National Agency for Work) turned into a new structure: ‚Work Center‘. A meeting each month, less money, and the risk to be removed of the lists if you refuse a job.
« We do not want to be controlled,
not helped nor you to be sorry for us;
we want money.
Rendez-vous on the Main Strike. »
(cockroachs of Montreuil)
In December, in several towns, unemployed people and other parasites started to move: in Brest, a town hall is occupied, and call for other strategical buildings occupations; in Lannion, Morlaix and Rennes, same motivations. Flash-actions take place in many Work Centers and Social Help offices (CAF:those who give you the money), with postering and inscription on the lists of removed people. But also ERDF (electricity company, that made big strikes last year, see HERE) and Temporary Jobs offices, walks in Brittany and around Marseille.
A new call is made to prepare occupations and strategy for May.
- « the ‚good‘ unemployed is no more an ‘unemployed ‘, it’s a ‚work-seeker‘.
The examplary work-seeker works, with no end: he starts again and again his Curriculum Vitae, sends hundreds of Motivation Letters, he ‚investigates‘ to ‚target‘ better the ‚jobs deposits‘, he accepts with good grace all the Curicullum redaction, interviews simulations courses, the free experience periods, the Evaluation in Work environment (70 hours of voluntary job), and he asks more ».
