(en) France, Alternative libertaeir December - Quebec Racial Profiling and political blunders of the police (fr) [machine translation]

Date Thu, 22 Dec 2011 09:38:23 +0200

The revelation of the existence of a policy dedicated to anarchist and marginal in Montreal is the question of relations between the public and law enforcement. While the Crap denounced racial profiling and police brutality, fonts such as Gamma Squad officially operate a profiling policy. ---- Alexandre Popovic, the Coalition against Police Repression and Abuse (Crap), is concerned with a recent fad police: Gamma Squad (Watch activities and movements of the marginal and anarchists). A political police discovered after a skirmish between members of the PCR (Maoist Quebec) and the police in May 2011 has led the anti-gang in the city to arrest four activists of the organization. Marc André Cyr, a student of political science, sees the new service "political profiling". ---- The Asse Student Association (student union struggle in Quebec) SSE had four arrests have occupied government buildings last March against rising tuition fees.

Its marginality is proven: 45 000 members can now be suspected of anarchist activities! Gamma Squad seeking to learn a lot about the subversive activities depends on the division of organized crime. Sergeant Lafreniere defends himself by speaking of a temporary squad: "The people we have arrested [...] have committed criminal acts, not because they held a meeting."

And yes, there will be other arrests. Those who do crimes, we will stop them, "insists he is recalling another sergeant, Sergeant Garcia (sic). Counsel believes Véronique Robert, meanwhile, it is not repression of ideologies. She understands that the squad has been two years but it only works for several months.

Repression of increasingly violent

Francis Dupuis-Deri, professor and specialist in social movements jokes about the name Gamma: "I hesitate between provocation and error." He questioned the city of Montreal considered a stronghold of anarchism: "It is true that the anarchist book fair is the largest in North America, Chiapas and the anti-globalization networks are experiencing a golden age» .

Added to this convergence of anti-capitalist struggles, and especially the G20 summit in Toronto, where activists from Quebec have been particularly targeted. "The Black Block are still barbarians elsewhere as" the one holding the book was found in the library of Tarnac. Alexandre Popovic added: "1100 arrests, Quebecers were targeted. Toronto is a rat trap! It was a Quebec Bashing! (Beating Quebecois). "

Francis Dupuis-Deri noted that the technique of mass encirclement appeared since 2000, a technique in which all participants are arrested. Alexandre Popovic said that in the 1990s, Squeegee, the windshield washers were hunted down in a sort of poor hunting Gregory Chamayou as described [ 1 ]. Refugees in Toronto, the Mayor has branded as the plague, a plague that targeted Quebec, historically poorest and French. Francis Dupuis Deri adds that Canada is now under the yoke of a Conservative government. The gang of Stephen Harper, a liberal sitting between Bush and Sarkozy said in 2002 about the protocol: "Kyoto is essentially a socialist scheme to suck money out of the richest countries."

He added towards organizations of human rights: "The Committee for Human Rights, by the way it operates, is a challenge to our fundamental freedoms and democratic societies. In reality, of totalitarianism. I think it's something quite scary. "

The Crap against police killings

Nine in August 2008, Villanova Freddy is killed by the police officer Jean-Loup Lapointe because he played at dice with a dollar wins. The next day, Montreal-Nord experienced its first riot. Except for hockey games, the city had never experienced such an explosion of violence. The SPVM - Montreal police - took seven hours to regain control of the neighborhood that the police call the Bronx. Alexandre Popovic ensuing Crap for the days of hearing in the trial said: "Them other, they see the patrol and a group of young people, they realize that they play dice. "

The officer slammed Danny Villanova, the brother of the victim, "and toe, come here, J'T seen played dice." Jean-Loup Lapointe grabbed his right arm while his teammate grabbed his left arm. He tries the shoulder and the officer made a decision in the neck. Freddy approaches. The police responded by firing four shots at 18 years old Freddy. He died two hours later. The next day the rioters attacked the fire station, shops and attack journalists. The neighborhood is in flames. The Coalition is born at that time. In December 2008 no charge is brought against Jean-Loup Lapointe. Police have been on the map "street gang."

Infiltration attempt

Alexander also lived as a child in the neighborhood. He knows his people, children of Haiti or Honduras as Villanova. The people start talking about racial profiling by police. Remarkable feature: the attempted infiltration of the coalition by a police officer calling himself Will Joseph Junior. Quickly discovered by the militants, it proposed to make noise during the commemoration of the death of Freddy by sending the mail: "Yo wassup. I saw you go ke be in my hood for walking and Sunday j'apréci fo'sho s'tienne ... We must no matter what. My boyz are close to the war. You do not know the area, so together we can make noise.

The government will understand kon is not happy with the shit is happening in Montreal North. Write me back for kon can organizes kelkechose of fucktop. Halla back. Will ". While the family asked the calm, the message internet showed great finesse. Faced with delirium policeman, Alexandre Popovic said the popularity of the coalition in Montreal North: "All our posters are shopping."

Montreal will have the honor of hosting the World Police and Fire (World Police and Fire Game) in 2017. Flash Ball and the Taser trial program.
