(en) [France] Fascist violence, Chamber complicit! By ANA (fr, pt) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 14 Apr 2018 09:42:03 +0300

Communiqué of the Coordination of the Anarchist Groups (CGA) after the concentration of 26/03 in front of the City Hall and the unambiguous position of the Central Chamber about the space "Social Bastion". ---- The CNT space attack on the night of March 30 to 31 confirms the urgency of expanding popular mobilization by closing all fascist spaces. ---- The city of Lyon, an accomplice of fascist violence. ---- On March 26, 2018, a collective meeting was held, which CGA Lyon is part of, to close the "Pavillon Noir". ---- The objective of this concentration, programmed at the request of the inhabitants, was to demand a position of the Central Chamber during a municipal council on the situation of Lyon and the recurrent establishment of spaces of extreme right. ---- Indeed, in the meetings held, the inhabitants of the neighborhood in question were more than dismayed by the public authorities' attitudes about space, the "Pavillon Noir" and its occupants very close to the neo-Nazi media. Lyon: there would only be a simple Health and Safety control, and they were informed that the inhabitants themselves would have to dialogue with the neo-Nazis of the "Gud Bastion Social" in case of neighborhood problems!

As if we could talk to them without risking reprisal!

What would be the position of Gerard Collomb's successor in the Chamber of Lyon? Would it, at least, protect the inhabitants of the neighborhood by taking a clear stand against "Social Bastion"?

As expected, nothing done!

Here is the answer from Mr Képénekian, Mayor of Lyon:

"We are extremely attentive to this issue. I can only reaffirm the commitment of our city that the district classified as Vieux Lyon, do not become their meeting point. Once this reformulated statement can imagine that it takes multiple, different time, forms and devices, but believe that we have this determination. "

Does the Mayor of Lyon live in the same world as the inhabitants of the 5th arrondissement to declare the will of the city of Lyon that Vieux Lyon does not become a meeting point for the fascists?

The Mayor of Lyon lives in the same world as the inhabitants of the 5th arrondissement to affirm with such bad faith that there is and there would be a real desire of the Central Chamber to avoid that Vieux Lyon becomes a meeting point of fascists while denouncing it several years ago?

Should we remind you again that since 2010 various spaces and trades managed by local fascists and neo-Nazis have gradually implanted? Should we remind him of the numerous attacks attributed to the far right of Lyon?

Should we remind you of the ordeal of the inhabitants, associations and professionals of the neighborhood in question?

As we said in our speech during the 26/03, therefore as in 2011 (with the closure of the Bunker Korps - Gerland neo-Nazis), we will have to increase popular mobilization, support (as tonight) o) The inhabitants, continue to inform the neighborhoods concerned to develop the fight for the closure of the "Pavillon Noir".

We also have an obligation to rebuild neighborhood self-defense and a surveillance network to counter the incursions and fascist attacks left unattended by public authorities.

Anyway, obviously, side by side with the people directly affected, we will continue to denounce the complicity of the Central Chamber of Lyon.

Fascist Violence, Chamber Accomplice!

Fascist Spaces, Accomplice Chamber!

The CNT space attack on 30/03 reinforces our determination to organize ourselves in the neighborhoods and to develop the struggle at the base.

All our solidarity with the comrades!

CGA Lyon
