(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - Homage to Anne Guérin (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 14 Oct 2017 09:23:09 +0300

Anne Guérin left us on Friday 29 September. Anne Guérin passed away at the age of 81 and it was with some emotion that we learned of her disappearance. Journalist, sociologist, translator, she was also a committed woman. ---- In 1960, she signed the Manifesto of the 121 which calls the French soldiers to be insubordinate during the war of Algeria and pronounces in favor of the independence of this French colony. She joined Act up Paris in the 1990s and the struggle with the AIDS patients. She is involved in the fight against the prison system and for several years she co-facilitates the prison commission of Act up Paris. She is also a member of the International Observatory of Prisons. It is also on this issue that she published in Agone, Prisoners in Revolt, Quotidien carcéral, mutinies and Prison Policy in France (1970-1980) in 2013 which we reported in our press. She also co-authored several calls, including solidarity texts and mobilization against repression.

His parents played a significant role in his awareness and commitment. His mother, Marie, was an Austrian communist activist. In France she worked in the Anarchist Revolutionary Organization, which was the most important libertarian organization in the first half of the 1970s. While her relationship with her father, Daniel Guérin, activist and libertarian writer (member of the ORA and UTCL) were difficult, she took part in the Cercle Daniel Guérin, which for three years (1989-1991) tried to push the reprints and translations of these works and also acted to promote the rapprochement between militant- revolutionaries. She was present at the Loughborough International Symposium in 2004 devoted entirely to her father's writings and struggles. She also participates in two documentaries. The first, Daniel Guérin, is directed by Pierre-André Boutang and Annie Chevallay for the program Oceaniques sur France 3 and the second, Daniel Guérin, combats in the century is the work of Patrice Spadoni and Laurent Mulheisen and is in the networks activists from 1998 on the occasion of the 10 years of the death of Daniel Guérin.

We have solicited it several times for initiatives or campaigns of solidarity and it has always responded positively. This was the case when we fostered a campaign for the liberation of our comrade Antoine, arrested and imprisoned several weeks in the spring of 2016 for his trade union and political activity against the labor law.

We keep from her the memory of a woman committed and able to defend her convictions with humor and generosity, and we offer our condolences to her family.
