(en) France, Union Communiste Libertaire AL #298 - Editorial: The absurdity of the system kills (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Wed, 9 Oct 2019 12:10:06 +0300

This time she was a school principal. Christine Renon, 58, committed suicide at her workplace in Pantin (Seine-Saint-Denis). Prior to her gesture, she took care to send a letter to her colleagues. ---- What she writes there leaves little doubt about the reasons for her action: the hierarchical pressure, the multiplication of tasks, the lack of means and time, the avalanche of accounting and bureaucratic "reforms". ---- Opposite, the reaction is methodical: stifle the case and depoliticize it. The academic inspectorate hastened to ask those who had received the letter to hand it over to the police, while "sources" promptly mentioned the recent death of the director's parents as a possible ground for her desperation.

But no one can be fooled by these maneuvers. Managers will be accountable. And since it is a whole system that is responsible, it is this one that must be challenged.

In private or public enterprises, capitalism is booming or running. And liberal ideology may well preach that wounds - like resources - are only intimate, we know that's wrong. The content of the tribute paid by his colleagues, parents and anonymous students has shown unequivocally. This death is added to the long procession of those whom the work has killed.
