(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - Towards an exceptional regime for the Roya Valley? (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Sun, 15 Oct 2017 08:05:38 +0300

Still an activist of solidarity with foreigners sentenced to a prison sentence. We denounce the repression suffered by the activists and the volunteers who try to help the most deprived. For more information, visit the site of the solidarity offenders, network of which AL is member: http://www.delinquantssolidaires.org ---- Yesterday, Monday, October 2, 2017, a 19-year-old man was sentenced to three months suspended prison sentence for transporting three lost refugees in the Roya Valley to his mother's vehicle for shelter in the camp of Cédric Herrou. ---- No criminal record, no crossing of the border, no financial compensation, no link with the refugees: a simple gesture of humanity. Several questions asked by the court to the young accused leave us puzzled, including: "You asked them for their ID ? "Or" Would you have done the same for French people ? " ". Should we now practice one of the three cardinal virtues of our republican motto by combining it with xenophobia: no fraternity for a foreigner ?

We have always firmly condemned all forms of solidarity offenses ; however, this same gesture of humanity, as we know elsewhere in France, most often gives rise to no prosecution or, at most, a reminder of the law ; it was sometimes punished previously in the Alpes-Maritimes department by penalties - in our eyes illegitimate - but in any case much lighter. For reasons of border crossing, the Italian justice has thus relaxed a Franco-American associative.

Faced with a record riddled with procedural errors, qualified by the prosecutor's substitute herself as "light", the court decided to heavily punish a young adult of 19 years. Because we believe in the justice of our country, we would like to be persuaded that it does not yield to the security and xenophobic atmosphere maintained in our department by some local politicians whose business it is.
