(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - France - Repression, Faced with public anger, the government muzzles and police knocks (fr, pt) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 17 Nov 2014 11:49:15 +0200

Saturday, November 1 were organized demonstrations in several cities in France. They followed the killing by police of a protester, Remi Fraisse, during a demonstration against the dam Testet. It was useless to protest against the project and against police violence. ---- But the government chose to ban most events and even to make preventive arrests. Indeed, while the extreme right beats quietly paved the five-year period since the beginning of the demonstrations in support of the Palestinian struggle, or against the great useless projects (Notre-Dame-des-Landes, dam Testet) are regularly banned. ---- Under the pretext of event risk, it is actually whenever gag anger and always give more reasons to suppress again. It is also to divide the "good" and "bad" opponents and thus weaken the movement by allowing such an event and prohibiting another, as happened in Paris.

The media have happily taken the language elements of the government and the police routinely speaking of "radical groups" or "thugs". This is far from reality.

Thousands of people came to denounce police violence, the arrogance of power and unnecessary projects. Of environmental activists, families, trade unionists, came to express their anger. Yes, there has been violence: police prevented people scroll gassing and clubbing those present. There are more offensive grenades in the arsenal of the police but very offensive uses of Flash-Ball grenades and projectiles are legion, the government is not fooling anyone. Result: many are injured, including some-es-es disfigured for life. Face police violence, people can no longer be sider and express their anger, it is a reflex that we must generalize.

Because violence is on the side of a criminal police, who ordered to punish those who fight against injustice! The "riots" that the mainstream media like to serve us at 20h are only the result of an authoritarian government that has lost all legitimacy and gives free rein to the police to provoke violence. But Toulouse, force gassed and clubbed the police only managed to attract the wrath of the crowd of passers-by more than protesters. The media speak of "thugs", the politician-nes condemning "violence" events are not in the street alongside those who show

The reason for this suppression and the makeup of the facts is that the power is afraid. Those who govern know they no longer have any political legitimacy and what they fear above all it is a convergence of anger. Especially since the government wants to reassure the private interests that hold fiercely Dam Sivens devastating as other projects. For us to show them that they have reason to fear: make sure that those who are struggling to meet shout with one voice, let us ensure that popular solidarity is at the height of police violence!
