(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #243 - Solidarity with migrants in Calais, symbol of an era (fr, pt) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 10 Nov 2014 16:37:01 +0200

The presence of a large number of male and female migrants in Calais is a special place for fascists of any kind, for which the fantasy of "African invasion" is finally becoming reality. While European policies let the situation deteriorate, the démagos and more or less racist politicos advantage of the situation... ---- Calais is a symptom of decaying capitalism tends to sink more deeply into barbarism. Even in a region devastated by poverty, the situation in Calais clashes with human dramas are played out. Migrants and migrants who fail in this small town in the hope of reaching the English promised land. The beautiful European castle in all its splendid inhuman coldness. These people find themselves struggling with the officer to a leftist government that would not have denied another right and racist harassment policies.

But as if that were not enough, a new vile beast has emerged, feeding on a French society still structured by racism and endemic poverty. A group claiming to speak on behalf of the little people of Calais, which is nothing more than a façade, the respectable appearances, a small fascist militia all that was classic. It's not even as if their little chefaillon is in hiding because it bears the stamp of his infamy to the skin, a swastika sits proudly on his chest. They claim to "save Calais" by sending a girl of 15 years at the hospital because it was assisting migrants, or attacking with the mischievous complicity of the constabulary, squats of migrants.

The Battle of Calais

On Sunday, September 7, all the flower of those who want to save France by shedding the blood of those they deem guilty of the supposed decadence of our society, had made an appointment to Calais. We saw scroll the gallery ersatz Mussolini calling for the formation of militias to defend themselves from barbarian invasion and preserve their pristine France and fantasy. That day as daily, people stood up to say no to the unacceptable. This solidarity takes the form of full support to migrants, a sometimes thankless job. It also involves a struggle without thank you to take the road to those who want to attack the oppressed. We were more than one hundred and fifty to ensure that the militia trainees do not have the space to carry out their usual abuses. They remained confined behind barriers protected by the cops. Such hideous specters in a museum display case, a symbol of a past that does not seem to die and comes back in a flood of barbarism. Calais is the symbol of the worst of human nature with politicardes inhumane policies, the vermin that thrive in a climate that is favorable, the oppressed who seem destined to make war on them. It is also the expression of the best because it is an example that so deep is the night it is always people who get up and light the flame of hope. It is important to know whether we will be numerous enough to keep it and see the end of darkness.
