(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - settlements, Abderrahmane Abdelhaoui (unionist Mayotte): "It is the question of equal rights being asked" (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Sun, 17 Apr 2016 10:10:31 +0300

The situation in Mayotte begins to pierce the wall media in France. AL joined Abderrahmane Abdelhaoui activist SOUTH Education Mayotte on Thursday 14th April. It reflects the reality of the general strike on the island and a popular movement that is not ready to stop. ---- Alternative Libertaire: Abdé Hi, can you describe the situation? ---- Abderrahmane Abdelhaoui: Everything is blocked. Many people are housebound. My companion, Hafida, teacher like me, is not, for example, not go to his school for two weeks. In colleges or high schools which regularly support 1,500 students, there is, in fact, only 20 to 30 students present. Most chests are closing at noon for lack of students. ---- From 5 am, the roads are blocked. There are two types of dams. Those of the Inter-CGT-CFDT-FSU-Solidaires-FAEN-FO. But also of dams "wild", built by kids mostly. These give rise to violent confrontations with the police suddenly caillassage CRS and motorists who have the misfortune of wanting to force the dams.

In this climate of blocking and ras-le-bol of social misery, are added violence between kids villages them who lead a guerrilla war. There are serious blessé.es. There is a year and a half, a boy was left on the floor after such clashes between villages.

In the villages of the center of Mayotte, the situation is dramatic for the population. Villages are no longer supplied. The shortage began. And that will intensify in the coming days ...

Economically, the local representative of Medef expressed concern asphyxiation of many companies due to blocking of the industrial area of Kaweni.

At the union level and claims that he is?

Abderrahmane Abdelhaoui: On the dams of the Inter, activists and campaigners are determined. Solidarity is very present. But the main force consists of the FSU, including the very first degree mobilized.

In terms of claims, beyond the claim which had been the backbone of the movement in the fall of 2015 on the issue of improving careers before the retirements of many officials is the question of equal rights being asked today. A claim substantiated by the state of misery of the vast majority of the inhabitants and residents of the island. A central claim which explains, for example, extreme involvement of mothers who descend from villages in cities, at events, bringing this requirement.

Sensing that the situation will only escalate, the government begins to respond. Tomorrow, Friday 15 April, the Inter will be received by the directors of office of three ministries (Overseas Labour and Solidarity). Not sure this peaceful movement. The Inter considering in the coming days to build a dam at the barges that connect Petite-Terre and Grande-Terre. The blocking of Mayotte will be total.
