French unions join far-right movement against refugees in Calais - World Socialist Web Site
Je n’ai pas vu passer ça dans la revue de presse sur #calais et si cest vrai c’est assez grave. Notez au passage comment l’ICFI présente la CGT ;)
Cynically claiming it was defending jobs, the Stalinist General Confederation of Labor (CGT) union joined far right protests against the “Jungle” refugee camp last Monday in Calais. The union bureaucracy thus brought its support to neo-fascist anti-immigrant propaganda and to the Socialist Party (PS) government, which aims to dismantle the “Jungle” to divide the workers with nationalist hatreds and disorient their opposition to PS wars and austerity measures.
After several protests in northern France and in Paris, the “Great rally of the Calais region,” a self-proclaimed “apolitical citizens movement,” carried out an action on September 5, cutting off the A16 highway with trucks and tractors.
