Already with the beginning of 2021 the People’s Committees for Mutual Aid and Solidarity were founded in Lyon, which were subsequently also founded in Saint-Etienne and have now been initiated in other cities. These committees make an important contribution to the revolutionary organization of the masses. The newspaper Nouvelle Epoque now presented a basic text of these committees.
From the basic text (own translation): “The People’s Committees for Mutual Aid and Solidarity are a form of struggle organization created by the inhabitants of the proletarian neighborhoods. These committees are completely independent of all public authorities and therefore work independently and without public subsidies. Our goal is to bring together, as much as possible, the residents of our neighborhoods to develop solidarity and active struggle to concretely improve our living conditions, which are constantly being worsened by successive governments of the right and left.”
Below we share pictures of various actions carried out in recent months by the People’s Committees in Lyon and Saint-Etienne, giving a small impression of this important work. Among other things, actions were carried out for the boycott of the elections!
