(en) Coordination of Brazilian Anarchists (CAB) - Against Repression and Cup: Only the Struggle and Organization! (pt) [machine translation]

Date Thu, 19 Jun 2014 12:45:30 +0300

The framework of trade union struggles and conflicts, and popular in the country before and during the World Cup, has pressured the federal government, some state, local governments and employers, generating a war of nerves in the major urban centers of Brazil. ---- If last year the big mobilizations were enthralled by the precarious sectors of youth and not by organized popular movements, in 2014, the emphasis has been, and by the way, will continue to be given by the base of workers of various categories and sectors close and articulated with the oppressed classes. The development of the conflict of the Subway of Sao Paulo - who for days have faced the intransigence of one of the worst expressions of the right in this country (the table of organization of the far-right Catholic Opus Dei Alckmin / PSDB) is an example of this, getting the strong repression police, all the dirty game of major media and even the announcement of more than 40 layoffs. The subway pursue the campaign for the readmission of 42 dismissed workers. Buckshot is being played upon these companions / and on top of the other categories valiant currently on strike is why we need to be alert to any attempts to criminalize fights.

State of exception? State of permanent struggle and solidarity!

As part of the World Cup General Law and Ordinance Guarantee Law and Order, which sets up a real state of emergency in the country, it is extremely necessary for the unconditional solidarity of the whole of the left and social movements all ongoing conflicts and especially for subway workers of São Paulo.

For months, the increase in police and military forces occurs in urban centers, as well as their suburbs and slums.

Because of the June days of 2013, we have seen the growing concern of the Brazilian State to ensure the "peace" during the World Cup. What, in practice, is expressed in legal mechanisms that rifam civil rights and democratic freedoms, intensified repression and criminalization of protest and poverty, increased police and military personnel in urban centers, as well as their suburbs and slums, as well as the costs of the technologies of repression. The continuity of trade union and popular struggles in this period indicates that no effort will be spared to contain, intimidate and prevent workers from using legitimate and historical rights to defend their conquests and tear, such as strikes, pickets, occupations and marches instruments.

In Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and Ceará, for example, search and seizure warrants were issued on the eve of COPA, the detention of some fellow / in order to inculcate the fear in social fighters. In the Federal District, militants of the Popular Committee Cup received intimidation of supposed representatives of Elections unidentified, a day before a protest against spending canopy. In Porto Alegre, several social activists Block Fights are being sued and enjoined. The subway workers on strike themselves suffered serious repression of Shock Troops of the PM, who used tear gas, the moral effect and rubber bullets. In Goiânia, students Struggle Front by Public Transport were arbitrarily arrested and are in addition to the numerous prisoners and detainees fight for transportation in the country. The list is huge and could extend over a page with cases of intimidation and repression from north to south.

The problem of housing shortage is most serious in the country, is the number of urban occupations in large cities multiply. The state's response has been to defend the land speculators, with forced removals. Except, when the movements of property, take to the streets denouncing and demanding advances as recently in Sao Paulo.

We pointed out in our materials analysis, we live in an emblematic moment in our country, with the increase of political social activists and political organizations, surveys with absurd and unreasonable charges which may continue beyond the World Cup pursuits. All this is coordinated by a constant psychological warfare to social struggles by the major media, distilling their class hatred and his lies in the expectation of building a conservative consensus that reinforces the idea that the social question is a police matter. The period of the Copa confirms the continuity of this scenario. In national statement on 10/06, President Dilma Rousseff says this is the "crown of tolerance, diversity, dialogue and understanding." A clear reaffirmation of the current statutes employed by the current government with the bourgeoisie and its support base, both in partisan terms as within hegemonic social movements, such as the CUT for example.

Facing repression: organizing and fighting!

The period we are living has shown the true face of the system of capitalist domination, which will not be changed with the change of governments to shift. When low move, the above deal to put into operation all kinds of coercive, repressive mechanisms and intimidation to stop the fights. The repression is and always will be the trump card of the dominant classes and the state, the letter that knocks all the others and imposes "social peace". The violence of the above is constitutive structures of domination of capitalism and therefore will never be an exception in the current system. It is a rule which helps to keep operating the relations of power and domination functional privileges of the ruling classes.

Admittedly, the nature of the demonstrations, many of them in absentia of the union leaderships and the official structures of the "traditional" unions asks us to move towards forms of organization, from the base, which make the experience of thousands of workers struggle, residents peri-urban areas, the rural poor and students a criterion serves to point out what and what does not serve the leadership and direct action of these fighters. This involves strengthening and building popular movements and militant organizations and independent union base to give social force to oppressed people, the policy that the CAB has modestly dedicated to building in various sectors of struggle. The experiences of the struggles of 2013 and recent conflicts have been the best they have produced a militant ideology of struggle and confrontation. It's time to back off but, time to give organizational quality!

Facing repression fighting for this new period of struggle, deepens levels of organization.

Again, time is constant solidarity, because it is a permanent struggle and domination where there is no resistance! Where there is resistance, struggle and grassroots organization, there are seeds being planted for the construction of Popular Power.

The moment is struggling to cope with the repression that this new period of struggle against the forces of order to deepen the levels of organization and awareness of low to overcome the fear that the ruling class of his government in turn wish to impose.

Every Solidarity to the strike of the São Paulo subway! The Right to Strike!

The readmission of 42 strikers subway!

By order of arrest and subpoenas Fighters!

Against repression promoted by Angle, fight, strike and organization of Bass!

Strengthen the union and popular movement with direct democracy, class independence and governments!

Protesting is not a crime!
