(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - Against racism, Case of the "burkini" This country goes crazy (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Thu, 1 Sep 2016 12:52:47 +0300

By persecuting the Muslim minority in the most absurd way possible, French politicians stir up racism and deepen the fractures in society. In short, they do exactly the game of the Islamic State, which recruits amid hatred and resentment. ---- A scandal caused by the FN around a "day burkini" in a private water park near Marseille; a beach brawl attributed (falsely) to Burkini history; several municipalities following the lead of the municipality of Cannes, which, on 28 July 2016, has banned access to beaches "any person not properly dressed, respectful of morality and secularism" ; Police who ridicule forcing a woman to undress on the beach in the name of "public order" ... ---- Was sad at first overshadowed by the Nice attack , then tarnished by the pathetic controversy which broke out around the "burkini ', a bathing suit covering the body of Muslim women who so wish, in accordance with their interpretation of Islam, "protect their modesty."

The bear comes under the strict individual freedom! Banned by several municipalities - perfectly illegal Furthermore, following the judgment of the State Council from 26 August - says a lot about the Islamophobic fury that gangrene French society.

It should also be emphasized that the feminist grounds, threadbare, is even more emphasized by the censors. It is now "anti-terrorism" prevailing when the administrative judges justify the anti-Burkini stopped explaining that this outfit "can indeed be interpreted as not being a simple sign of religiosity [...] in the context of emergency and recent Islamist attacks. "

Mixing everything, in spite of common sense, in defiance of reality.

For politicians of the PS , of LR or FN - and even in the ranks of the Communist Party - the challenge is simple: limit the public debate to issues of "identity" to ignore the real problems that plague society. For what, every day, rots the lives of the working classes, it is not the length of skirts to school, or the substitution of food in canteens nor Burkini on beaches but rather exploitation, insecurity, unemployment, racial and gender discrimination ...

Alternative Libertaire refutes the conflation of Islam and terrorism, and denies these shameful attempts invisibiliser a minority and excluded from the public space. With our colleagues, our families, at work or at school, do not leave the field open to racism.
