(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #259 - feminism, Cologne, it's not that New Year's Eve (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Fri, 8 Apr 2016 18:46:24 +0300

A text German comrades, following sexist and sexual assault of the night of New Year's Eve in Cologne, and the racist outburst that followed. Read also the article in Alternative Libertaire March , to take a step back and never forget that sexism, unlike the wealth is shared among all of any social background, religion, nationality they are ... ---- The assault on the night of New Year's Eve in Cologne have made headlines around the world. The year 2016 began with violence against women of all nationalities and skin colors. These events have become a symbol and a challenge for the different actors and social, trade union and associations of the city. ---- The German government has used these incidents to toughen laws against réfugié.es, and police conducted several raids on the homes of asylum seekers. A focus has also been attacked by gangs of neo-Nazis with an offensive grenade - which fortunately did not explode. The police reported arson. Aggression towards immigré.es multiply. The movements of the right and extreme right took the opportunity to organize an event where the watchword was the hatred of the foreigner.

The worst...

2004 deadly bomb loaded with nails by neo-Nazis in a street predominantly inhabited by Turkish immigrant-es-that-s and Kurds. Initially, German police announced that it was the Turkish mafia who sowed disorder.

2013: 5,000 racist hooligans through the city by threatening immigrant-es. Police were much criticized for this at the scene, it did not intervene.

2015: a neo-Nazi activist - known in the city, and the police - stabbed the mayor of Cologne Henriette Reker claiming racist motivations.

And best

But Cologne is also the cradle of democratic movements and a labor and trade union movement strong enough since the 1970s 19,000 wage earners working alone at Ford, 12,000 are born-are of Turkish and Kurdish immigration . Among union-activists in the factory there is a fringe-immigrant activists are who sympathize with a base unionism and combative. Meetings have already been held between the militants and IG Metall Ford and Solidaires Industrie recent years.

The year 1972 saw the first massive strike immigré.es workers at Ford with autonomous strike committees for better working conditions and more decency, much like the strikes for dignity in Poissy in 1982. these wildcat strikes symbolize the first working rebellion in the history of immigration in Germany and they have marked up today salarié.es life in the city and in the country.

And now?

Since 31 December, many meetings, public debates, neighborhood assemblies, women's meetings are held.

The general orientation of the trade union and associations, women's groups, immigré.es initiatives, artists and music groups, is the indignation against the violence suffered by women everywhere, not just in the street but also in all social relations. They and they want to engage more to live together against all who want to retrieve this event to benefit their reactionary ideas.
