(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - policy, State of Emergency: The union and associative movement alarm (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 23 Nov 2015 16:17:00 +0200

Unions, women's groups, associations of unemployed, precarious, antiracist, community, humanitarian, anti-colonial, secular ... all have answered the call of the League of Human Rights to worry publicly about the draconian devoted arsenal the name of the "war on terror". Alternative Libertaire reproduced below their joint statement. ---- Those that did to Paris and St. Denis a moment of absolute inhumanity will not make us give in. Nothing can justify these murders. Each victim lives in us because we belong to the same humanity. Our solidarity with them and against their family is complete. This crime is immense but we refuse it becomes an excuse to change our lives. ---- We are not naive: we know that these acts of terrorism call for a response commensurate with the threat they represent. As we know that the role of law enforcement and justice is essential to protect our freedoms.

This does not justify the direction taken by the president and the government.

It is democracy that no longer works in appearance when Parliament is called to deliberate from one day to the other under the pressure of emotion and the assaults of demagogy of politicians who cultivate fear.

Since 1986, legislation granting more powers to the security forces, organizing an exceptional justice and restricting our freedoms under the pretext of fighting against terrorism, pile. The adoption of other legislative instruments, including constitutional, requires the question of their effectiveness and additional impairment of the freedoms they are. Before changing the law and to give the state greater powers, it is necessary that he wonders about what has not prevented such an abomination. Tomorrow, suddenly permanent emergency measures become, we will all be monitored and suspects and the omnipotent state and without control. The process initiated by the President of the Republic as a martial response, it is a reality: the restriction of our freedoms without ensuring more security.

Wanting to deprive of their nationality to the individuals born in France, is again delivering the message of a divided France. The silence of the President of the Republic, at the meeting of Parliament on the essential state commitment to equal rights, social justice, and against all forms of discrimination against all manifestations of racism increases dramatically the feeling of exclusion experienced by a large part of our people. It thus gives a little more body to the growing stigma exerted jeopardizing our will to live together.

We want these dramatic events are, instead, an opportunity to build a different path than the one before us. A path that refuses to scapegoats and refuses that France is at war against itself. A path that gives peace and equal rights for all its place and is committed in favor of France solidarity, open to the other, friendly, free and fraternal.

We will not give in to fear in which we want to live those who make death their reason for living. We will not give to those who promise us a society with limited freedoms and fraternity. We call women and men of this country to remain united and to fight against all forms of racism. We also call for the defense of freedoms because we will prevail in all circumstances our freedom of expression, demonstration and assembly. Our organizations will build throughout France these places that will allow us to discuss and we will exercise constant vigilance to ensure that our freedoms are preserved and that no one is discriminated against.
