(en) Coordination of Anarchist Groups CGA-Lyon: fascist attack on the Croix Rousse and against the libertarian bookstore Black Plume (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 22 Nov 2016 15:06:15 +0200

This Saturday, November 19, 2016 in the middle of the afternoon, Catholic fundamentalists and other right-wing activists called for a gathering place Colbert, to oppose the church's conversion project Saint-Bernard (currently disused) in business center and require that it be entrusted to the St. Pius X fraternity, a particularly reactionary and nearby Catholic media organization fascists. ---- The rally had been banned in the prefecture, who invoked in its statement the risk of disturbing public order and referred back to back shamelessly fascist methods and violent militant · e · s progressive and antifascists present · e · s in the neighborhood. ---- The rally yet taken place despite the ban, including members of the GUD, the French Action and the Nationalist Party French heavily armed and helmeted, who made a first appearance at our local bookstore Pen black, in early afternoon.

These fascist activists openly prepared to take violent action, were not worried or controlled by many police officers present, which also provided protection to the gathering taking activist distance · e · s antifascists and other capita · e · s neighborhood.

We are surprised unfortunately no such complacency including us under the state of emergency, even as it serves include fig leaf to increased repression of progressive social movements. Recall that a few weeks ago, the police showed night in Lyon streets hand in hand with the same extreme right.

Towards 18h, while the fundamentalist rally had dispersed, twenty still massively equipped fascists have put together the slopes of the Croix-Rousse and brutally converged on the Black Feather, where there were a dozen of our comrades.

the people present in the room dropped the curtain to protect themselves, but the fascists managed to raise and to drive another metal component, also destroying the windows that were behind.

the strength of our comrades prevented the fascists from getting physically in the room, but could not prevent damage that are destroying all windows and a portion of the flap. Several people also suffered minor injuries during the assault which lasted several minutes, particularly because of projectiles (stones, metal tools, glass bottles) launched by the fascists.

When they arrived and then they left, the fascists screamed "we're at home", "France to the French" and "death to Jews" as rallying and dispersion.

This heinous attack is not an isolated event. Nearly 20 years after the fire the local Black Feather precedent by the extreme right in 1997, she enrolled in the current rise in power of the extreme right and fascism, which results in multiplication attacks against minorities, activists of the labor movement, feminist, antiracist, LGBT and progressive.

These attacks are favored by the opening of new local fascists in several French cities such as Lille and Lyon, which serve as places of organizations this fascist intimidation strategy. In Lyon, there are now four local (PNF, GUD, French Action and identity), with no real response from the authorities and the city of Lyon.

In view of this, we reaffirm that we shall not be intimidated and we call for solidarity and a wide reaction of all components of the progressive camp.
