(en) US, San Diego, Solidarity with the Rebels of France - statement from the o.r.g.a.n.i.c.* collective

Date Sat, 12 Nov 2005 08:26:03 +0200

The o.r.g.a.n.i.c. collective wishes to extend our feelings of solidarity
to the rebels of the migrant communities of France. It is clear to us
that the recent uprising which has spread across the country is a reaction
against years of bitter racism that has ruined countless lives as well as
a reaction against racist immigration policies based on that racism.
We are in support of resistance against migration controls and wish to see
an end to the violent system of state repression which led to the deaths of
two young North African migrant children in Clichy-sous-Bios on October 27th.
The police state justified by migration control regimes is a tool of capitalism
which is used to maintain the disgusting inequity that neoliberalism perpetuates.

The bloody history of racism and colonialism in France cannot be
ignored and forgotten, just as the same system of genocide that the US
is built on cannot be either. Until this history is acknowledged and
reconciled, there can be no peace.

We urge the people of the world to look closely at this uprising and the
causes behind it. It is not a senseless riot, an idea which is used to
promote racist ideas about people of color, just as it was used to
describe the 1992 uprising in Los Angeles. The global system that
seeks to control the movement of people at the point of a gun while
freeing corrupt corporations to tramble across the globe must come to
an end. We are working to end that system, in solidarity with
movements against migration controls all over the world, from France
to Spain to Mexico and the US.
