(en) France, Coordination of Anarchist Groups - IAgainst the violence of the state: to organize and cons-attack! by djou (fr, pt) [machine translation]

On 25 October, Remi Fraisse, opposing the dam project in the Tarn, was shot dead by one of the armed wings of the French State. As in the struggles against the Grand Paris or the airport to Notre-Dame-des-Landes, it is to fight against major projects, driven jointly by the state and big business who see a juicy windfall . The unexpected and exemplary resistance which is conducted panicked state, which responds by increasing the level of repression. ---- Neighborhoods with demonstrations, maintain social order ---- The death of Rémi is the logical and inevitable consequence of the methods of "policing" (social order) that are developed against popular movements. At a time when our living conditions always worsen also contain the popular uprisings become a necessity for the State, whatever the cost. State violence against the street takes getting better and the week that followed the death of Rémi is the proof of an eye (one more) in Blois, a nose ripped from Nantes, shots pressure to the ice-s-organizer of events, a military system and hundreds of arbitrary arrests in Paris.

These law enforcement techniques are tested over a long time in poor neighborhoods, where focus those who do not have the right skin color and / or good names and / or the right papers, the right language for them. The revolts of 2005 and 2007, in particular, have been the opportunity to develop weapons of the police and the army. And the names of many dead by the police well express the deeply racist nature of the police system.

The murder of Remi is an additional step, which recalls the murder of Vital Michalon in 1977 or that of Malik Oussekine in 1986. It is the republican order which is expressed in these regular acts, nothing more, nothing less.

The state is our enemy

In the ghettos of the Republic as in the demonstrations, the state is our enemy. When we do not have the right skin color as when we oppose his sinister plans, the state is our enemy. Its police, justice, laws are working against us. And it could never change.
The only thing to hope for the moment, these are partial developments earned by charging a report sufficient strength, particularly in the street. But we must keep in mind that the disarmament of the police or the resignation of the interior minister and the government are only interim measures. The only way to stop the violence of the state is to destroy it and replace it with the free association of neighborhood assemblies, cities, regions and the pooling of means of production and exchange.

How to organize against the state?

We need to develop popular self defense. Not only in equipping to confront the repressive forces, but also by organizing class solidarity where one lives, lives or works. Meeting people around us, organizing against our problems (and enemies) common, either for paper, housing, labor (wages and conditions) against control (RATP, the CAF, job center, the boss, the cops ...). Together, we are stronger-es!

Peace to all the victims of fascism and state!
Against the State in all its forms, building the popular self-defense and class solidarity!

Fascist violence

The rise of police violence coincided with the rise of fascism and the extreme right. Coincides? Actually, it's more than a coincidence. Fascism permeates widely and increasingly the police and gendarmerie. And it is not uncommon for fascist groups that violate, or fighting fire on activists are (linked) cops.! One more reason not to have any illusions about them
Their crude attempts to infiltrate the struggle of Testet should not mislead us: fascism is to fight anywhere, whatever the color of his uniform!

Patriarchal violence

The State violence is also expressed in a particular way on women. In particular, the difficulty complain if harassment, sexual assault and rape protect violent men and must therefore be regarded as state violence against women. Let us not forget either that the police are not the last to attack and rape women. Prostitutes and / or trans and / or non-white are among the most affected by these state violence.
On 25 November, day against violence against women is an opportunity to show our anger against the violence of State.
