(en) France, Alternative Libertaire - Draconian legislation by Tristan (fr, pt) [machine translation]

Date Wed, 12 Nov 2014 15:35:39 +0200

Antiterrorism and generalized suspicion ---- France has to vote its 17th anti-terrorism legislation since 1986! Whenever it comes to civil liberties to reduce false pretext of "combating terrorism". Who benefits from the crime? ---- This is the pretext of fighting against the French and French starting to fight in Syria side of the "Islamic state" that the government passed yet another anti-terrorism law. This law is not terrorism. It is based on four key measures. First, it is now possible to prohibit the release of land to individuals suspected by the police of wanting to participate in "terrorist activities" abroad. This provision opens the possibility of criminalizing mere "intent". Second, it is to allow an administrative blocking websites considered glorifying "terrorism". Third, the Act creates the offense of "individual terrorist enterprise," not funny variant of the famous "I am a young band to myself." In truth, this new offense to punish more severely those suspected of "terrorism". Finally, the aggravation of the offense of glorification of terrorism allows an extension of the scope of this formula. To top it all, the legal framework of policing is expanded in terms of infiltration on the net.

Who benefits from the crime? The fight against terrorism is a false pretext. Why produce a bill for a few hundred lost-es gone to fight in the ranks of jihadists? Therefore, in this case, to say nothing of those parties fight in the pro-Russian nationalist militias or urkrainiennes? In reality, this law is fully in line with the security policies implemented in developed countries. At first, the pretext of fighting against an imaginary enemy within, the various governments restrict civil liberties. In a second step, these exceptional measures are extended to the entire population. In the 1990s the employment card measures taken against pedophiles have tracked, then the massive trade unionists. In the US, the Patriot Act has increased repression of anti-war movements.

The rhetoric of anti-terrorism is primarily a resource for all politicians allow them to divert the public debate the real issues. Cazeneuve the law was also passed in a surprising consensus FN FCP, only the Greens abstaining. Then, the security market has become a significant financial windfall. Finally, these devices allow a greater population paying less and less legitimacy to the ruling classes and prey to the violence of capitalism control. No need to militia, the regime has "legal weapons" necessary for its authoritarian trends.
