France: “All Together! General strike!”

This was was one of the slogans last spring. The mobilizations against the French government’s attacks proved that the working class is still able to fight back against the capitalists’ offensive. But it also showed the obstacles that stand in the way of the workers’ movement. The challenge today is how to prepare the future movements against the government of Macron and the capitalists.
