(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - Clash, AL Youth Newsletter (March 2017) - 19 March: For justice and dignity (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 20 Mar 2017 13:38:27 +0200

On 19 March, it is a mobilization against racism that is plaguing the state, the media, the police and the judiciary. The police do not hesitate to use violence to defend the social order (remember the repression of protesters against Labor law). And when her victims do not have white skin, she knocks harder still! ---- When the police wound, mutilate, humiliate or kill, whether it be Adama Traore, Theo Luhaka or all the others, justice becomes an accomplice. As if insults, injuries and the dead were not enough, it relaxes the police or condemns them to weak sentences. While at the same time, those who revolt against these injustices are presented as delinquents and take prison. ---- It is only through collective struggle for justice and truth that victims succeed in simply enforcing the law. The media gives the floor to so-called reactionary experts, who are increasingly dropping out as the presidential election approaches. So much so that the head of a police union can quietly declare on television that the insult "bamboula" is "suitable".

Over the years, from the repetition of these acts of violence and their impunity, it is clear that these are not bribes and exceptional cases. It is a real system of intimidation of the inhabitants and the inhabitants in the working-class neighborhoods. The fact that the Anti-Criminal Brigades behave like troops of occupation in hostile zone is a legacy of the colonial period.

Contempt and repression

Migrants who have committed no crime other than having no residence permit must be harassed by the prefectures, the police who steal their blankets and prevent them from sleeping on the ground. street.

Faced with this tragedy, there is only one possible political response: the regularization of undocumented migrants, and freedom of movement. Let us say it clearly: the "migratory invasion" is a myth. One million migrants are 0.2% of the European population.

The bluff of the state of emergency

The state of emergency prevented any terrorist attacks. On the other hand, it has been useful to muzzle protest movements. This has been reflected in the increased stigmatization of Muslims, who are targeted by the majority of searches and house arrest. Yet less than 1% of these "preventive" measures have resulted in judicial investigations for terrorism.

Justice and dignity

When we call for an end to harassment, discrimination at work and housing, and racism on a daily basis, the public authorities blame it on those of us who do not have fairly white skin, Do not have a rather "French" name, on the pretext that they have "a problem of integration"! It is reversing responsibilities, and that is unacceptable.

The solution will not come from the politicians, but from ourselves, and from the solidarities we have woven.

Whether it is the revolts of the working-class districts, the blockades of the lycee, the demonstrations, we refuse the criminalization of our struggles. Let us continue to collectively organize ourselves to build a powerful and combative anti-racist movement. We will only have what we take!

Demonstration for Adama Traoré, July 29, 2016 in Paris, finally banned.
