(en) France, Coordination of Anarchist Groups Paris area - Charlie Hebdo and hostage-taking: Stopping nationalistic and religious fascism! (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 19 Jan 2015 14:50:52 +0200

The statement of the group of Paris CGA following the first week of the year 2015 and the events that have marked. We have chosen not to communicate too hot to get out of emotion and be able to analyze a little better political and social benefits many and complex. ---- * Political killings Charlie Hebdo and hostage-taking: * ---- * Stop drift and confusionism *! ---- * Stop nationalistic or religious fascism *! ---- Wednesday, January 7, 2015, 12 people were killed in and around the premises of the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo by two brothers claiming to radical Islamism. Among them, nine people working or working for the newspaper and a maintenance agent that will probably never be the tribute he deserves. On Friday 10 January, the attackers of Charlie Hebdo fleeing took refuge in a small printing to Dammartin-en-Goële Seine-et-Marne. Shortly after, one of their cronies took hostage-client're a Kosher grocery Porte de Vincennes (after killing a police trainee), killing at the same time four customer-es because they were Jewish / Jews.

The Anarchist Groups Coordination deplores these attacks and strongly condemns the reactionary ideology and anti-Semitism that are at the origin. We also condemn the fascist attacks targeting Muslim places of worship and individual Muslims or designated as such. (See article on Paris Struggles Info ). So we condemn in advance any attempt to recover the attacks for purposes Islamophobic, racist, antisemitic, nationalist and safe. These attacks are part of the general rise of fascism, he advances behind the slogan of the "defense of the nation" or behind religious ideology, whatever its declination. Whether religious fascism which exploits religion, or nationalistic fascism arises "protector of the Christian West", all converging towards the same so-called "clash of civilizations" that maintains the idea of war of "tou-te-s-s-tou against you" and want to push us to choose between one or the other. As an anarchist, we refuse this deadly logic and choose the class confrontation, the struggle against the capitalist system, imperialist, racist and patriarchal. Moreover we do not forget the role that Charlie Hebdo held in disseminating racist speech, sexist and Islamophobic the last fifteen years. But nothing justifies such crimes and we stand with the families and relatives of the victims, here and elsewhere.

Our solidarity does not stop at the borders of France. Reminder and to counter the prevailing confusionism the first victims in countless numbers of Islamist fascism are Muslim-es or persons assigned to the Muslim religion (1). Similarly, we do not participate and do not participate in the Republican masquerade of national unity led by the government, which is trying to unite behind him all the bourgeois political parties, the FN to the Left Front, which participates in the ambient confusionism and trivialization of the extreme right. The great Republican parade of 11 January was the perfect example because could find representatives of all French political parties. You could also find a large panel representative es of imperialist states, dictatorships and war criminals like Angela Merkel, David Cameron, Sergei Lavrov, Erdogan, Netanyahu or Ali Bongo. "National unity" c is giving more weapons to our enemies. Is allow to nationalism and fascism to spread and prove them right. National unity is done automatically in exclusion of oppressed minorities (es immigrants, Roma, undocumented LGBT...). We do not forget either, racist and Islamophobic climate that prevails in this country and in Europe for over twenty years with its corollary of repressive laws against immigrant-es, es the Muslim and national minorities.

The policies of the PS and the UMP in recent years, including deportations, arrests, raids undocumented forged for too many years the foundation for racism "uninhibited" and contributed significantly to the increasing acts of violence against the Muslim-es and individuals designated as such. Since Wednesday's political assassination, Islamophobic attacks increased, ranging from physical aggression to the attack with a weapon of war in places of worship or Muslim shops in almost total indifference of the media. These crimes are the work of far-right activists. But hunting by gendarmes and police waged against veiled women, especially in tourist areas such as the Eiffel Tower and the broader context of stigmatization by the State and the media of Muslim minorities and Roma largely have their share of responsibility in the attacks. The killing by police Bertrand "Bilal" Nzohabonayo in Joue-les-Tours, and false "Islamist attacks" drunk early December speeders are only the latest and perfect examples of this xenophobic stigma. We condemn anti-Semitism causes the hostage taking of the Porte de Vincennes: the Jewish national minority has been responsible for the oppression of other minorities, in a context of increasing anti-Semitic acts.

If we denounce this anti-Semitic attack, we are not fooled by the state instrumentalization that systematically seeks to designate the Muslim-es and those designated as such, as inherently anti-Semitic and hostile to Jews and Jewish. Such talk enables racist and Islamophobic dynamic while anti-Semitism is actually an old product of French nationalism (see the federal press the CGA on the subject) We are not fooled and know that the state and the bourgeoisie will take advantage of these attacks to intensify class war: after already enacted draconian laws, say counterterrorism, politicians are preparing to strengthen the state security apparatus and continue to take to national minorities. State violence will strengthen and everything will be done to lose ground to the social movement and the struggles of oppressed minorities to the removal of individuals, as in the case of Zyed and Bouna, Lamine Dieng, Wissam El Yamni or Rémi Fraisse. As anarchists, we decided es to fight fascism and racism by all necessary means, including by supporting our own self defense. We must defend and implement the alliance of all oppressed minorities, whether religious, national, sexual, independently and without hierarchy. We need to unite around our common interests on class bases, to develop popular struggles able to bend our common enemies: states and bourgeoisies whatever labels they are relative ("Republican", " Islamist "," moderate "," democratic "...).
