(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL September - asque Country: A peace process but not at all costs (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Thu, 5 Oct 2017 13:38:01 +0300

While a demonstration for the peace process in the Basque Country is to be held on 9 December in Paris, it is necessary to take stock and to question the evolution of the demands related to the liberation of the Basque people. ---- The libertarian communists have never remained indifferent to the struggles for national liberation, without falling into the illusion of the creation of new states, as we indicated at our congress in Angers in 2010: " Nor is it to confer on the struggles for national liberation an excessive historical role. The libertarian communists have no third-world illusions. There are no "proletarian nations" whose nationalism is "class consciousness". The social revolution does not identify itself with a geostrategic failure between states. The class struggle remains the principal lever of a potential reversal of forms of oppression and exploitation, in any country, dominant or dominated, whatever. "

For all that, we are resolutely committed to the self-determination of peoples and to colonialism. Since the struggle which emancipates itself from identity issues and is opposed to the alliance between the working class and the bourgeois class which has deviated in many national liberation movements. Our compass remains the anti-capitalist struggle for a people which will organize itself in terms of education, production and distribution while freeing itself from the state and the bourgeoisie ; bourgeoisie which holds the reins of the autonomous community of Euskadi still under the yoke of the Spanish State.

We can not lose interest in the peace process in Euskal Herria following the deposition of weapons decided by the ETA organization, which has seen its influence erode over time and the destruction of its arsenal in connection with the Artisans of Peace. It was a fine example of disobedience, with the nose and beard of the French police and justice. But what about social liberation ? This peace process refers to a number of issues: social liberation, the independence of the Basque Country and class issues.

Diva by Jean Lassalle

We wonder about the supports sought ; in fact, LR, Modem, PS and other formations, political opponents of the Basque workers, are put forward. At the meeting of Peacemakers with parliamentary groups, or at the Ministry of Justice on the issue of Basque prisoners and political prisoners on 10 July, elected representatives such as the mayor of Bayonne and president of the new community of agglo Basque country, which promises budget cuts in the latter by slashing staff, or else the presidential candidate, Jean Lassalle, who was wandering on social networks announcing that in ikastolas (immersion schools Basque-speakers) learned how to use weapons! Certainly, being accompanied by such characters, who remain class enemies, opens the doors of certain cabinets, but at what price for the future ? There is, however, no lack of clearly anti-capitalist trade union and associative movements in the Basque Country ; their strength is real. The construction of peace would be in better hands with these artisans !

This policy of wide discrepancy leads to put under the carpet one of the demands, and not least: that of the liberation of the Basque Country and its independence vis-à-vis the French and Spanish States. At the same time, referendums are being held in Catalonia in October and in Kanaky in 2018. We support the independence movements which are in breach with the States of all countries and with capitalism. At the demonstration on 9 December to relay the message of an anti-capitalist, antipatriarcal, ecologist and internationalist Basque Country, it will be necessary to support the rapprochement of Basque prisoners and political prisoners, an emergency measure before the amnesty.
