(en) France, Alternative Libertaire Tract AL - War, terrorism out of gear (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 26 Jan 2016 13:18:13 +0200

After the horrific attacks of November 13, Holland and Valls adopted the formula for Bush in 2001, "war on terror" + restriction of freedoms. A more dangerous reaction to the French company for Daech. How, in fact, apart jihadism? ---- Support the progressive forces in the Middle East ---- Afghanistan 2001, Iraq 2003 to 2014, Libya in 2011, Sahel in 2012, Syria 2015 ... Fifteen years of "war on terror" bombers of the occupation troops, drones, special forces ... hundreds of billions swallowed , for what? It's in the ruins of bombed countries that jihadist leaders recruit people with nothing to lose. ---- Eradication of jihadism depends progressive forces organized in the Middle East and Africa. Although they can sometimes benefit from external support, but the intervention of foreign powers in a conflict poses many more problems than it solves. The end of military interventionism will not be a panacea, but a prerequisite to the extinction of jihadism.

Western states are caught in fatal contradictions. On one hand, they lead a "war on terror" endless. On the other they remain friends with Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey, supporting jihadism covertly. They guarantee the impunity of Israeli colonialism, which is nevertheless the cause of deep resentment. And to please Turkey, they still treat the PKK (Kurdish revolutionary left) as "terrorist".

Yet the Kurdish left today is the best defense against Daech. It imposed military defeats and opposes to it a political alternative with a draft democratic, secular, feminist and environmentalist.

Halting the social disintegration

Our society is sick of capitalism, undermined by inequality, unemployment, poverty, for discrimination against the Muslim population, people who do not have the right skin color or not the right papers.

Among those that revolt, many (but not enough) are organized in associations, trade unions, to act collectively on the situation. Only a tiny minority of desperate and fanatical dream of murder ... It is among them that the leaders are looking to recruit jihadists.

Faced with this, the old moons on youth leadership by the school (supposed to provide a "republican morality"), military service (some want to restore) or religion (with imams to instill the "right dogma ") are vain, if allowed to continue ruining capitalism society. A social question, there is no moral solution.

Militarize society? Surely not !

The "state of emergency" is a scam. It will be powerless to stop suicide bombers. However, it reduces civil liberties and can be used to hinder the social protest.

Already, we see the scapegoats of this militaristic climate:

"bad French", which is binational threat of deprivation of nationality;
the neighborhoods, where police impunity trigger happy (the policeman who killed Amine Bentounsi in 2012 was acquitted at trial on January 18);
the migrant.es fleeing war and poverty;
trade unionists who refuse to kowtow (eight workers at the Goodyear plant in Amiens were sentenced to nine months in prison on January 12 for having sequestered rogue leaders in 2014);
the Muslim population who suffers "retaliation" racist since the attacks.

Reject this logic. Against Jihadism, against military interventionism, against the militarization of society, for solidarity between workers' struggles and the struggles of neighborhoods for the support of progressive forces in Africa and the Middle East.
