(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - Policy -- 1983-2013: Always antiracist! Demonstration in Paris on December 7 (fr, pt) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 09 Dec 2013 11:48:37 +0200

On 3 December 1983, 100,000 people demonstrated in Paris, concluding a March of Marseille October 15. Decided by a group of walkers from the cities of Lyon suburbs, the Walk for equal rights and against racism marked the emergence of a new generation, the children of immigrants. It was organized in response to hate crimes, police violence, and an election campaign marked by xenophobia and security ideology that lives, as Dreux, alliances with the National Front. ---- It extended in its way, the struggles in the previous decade by migrant workers for equal rights. "Invisible" became full participants in the French society. ---- Our march has not ended 3 December 1983. We never stopped walking and fighting. Even if we won victories or obtained some progress, the situation of immigrants and their descendants, many of whom are French, has continued to deteriorate. Residents of poor neighborhoods today are facing tougher situations than in 1983.

Thirty years to get to this bitter fact: police violence as racist crimes have not ceased and unpunished. Worse, racism is a state of laws, practices and nauseating speech has spread from above Negrophobia and Islamophobia have developed, extending the anti-Arab racism. The promise of the President of the Republic at the time, that the right to vote to non-EU foreigners has never been held.

Today, after a decade of right power with all its excesses and populist demagoguery - debates on national identity and the "positive role" of colonialism - the new government is in line with its predecessors restriction asylum, accent discrimination in all sectors of society, relegation Popular neighborhoods and their inhabitants, threats of extinction associations terrain and proximity controls facies, two-tier justice, hunting undocumented Roma, multiplication evictions ... Meanwhile, the Chibanis, our elders, are reclusive and disenfranchised.

Thirty years have passed after the great hopes raised by the March of 1983. Our commitment remains intact. We let go nothing. The message of the March for equal rights and against racism, even if it is not taught as it should be in school, more than ever and we want it again heard loud and clear.

This is why everywhere now, and from October 15 to December 3, 2013, we offer all those and all those who recognize themselves in this appeal to establish general meetings and initiatives at local, regional National.

We do not limit ourselves to shout our anger against injustice and inequality.

We propose that any society other solutions, those of equal rights to end the Republic of contempt.

Already, we call two meetings: October 15th, the date of departure of the March in Marseille in 1983, and on 18 and 19 October in Vaulx-en-Velin, a reminder that the suburbs of Lyon was the cradle this movement. We will organize throughout France for fifteen equal rights and justice for everyone from 25 November to 7 December. And we will do 3 December, a day of rallies and demonstrations.

Against racism and for equal rights
