(en) France, Union Communiste Libertaire AL #297 - antifascism, The European Union rolls out the red carpet on the far right (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

The announcement by the European Commission on 10th September of the name of the Ministry of Migration: "Protecting our European way of life" is more than worrying and is clearly part of a strategy of sliding towards a far-right policy of this institution. ---- In addition to the fact that this designation directly targets migrant people as harmful and dangerous, it openly validates the theory of the "great replacement" broadly disseminated by the extreme right and its objective allies of the conservative and liberal right. Even if there was absolutely nothing to wait for the migration of the European Commission and its future president, Ursula von der Leyen, this title marks a real changeover. Despite the outcry from the left and the Social Democrats in the European Parliament, despite denunciations from all sides and the approval of the far-right Hungarian leader Viktor Orbán, Von der Leyen persists and stands on his stance.

The fantasy of a white and Christian Europe threatened by the "invaders" is not only affirmed by the denomination of this ministry but also by its repressive and protectionist policy towards migrants. To protect its way of life, the right-wing majority relies on the state, internal security and strengthening borders. So many tools whose violence has already occurred many times in the last 20 years and has been illustrated by tens of thousands of drowning in the Mediterranean, inhuman detention camps, particularly in Greece, and policies of virtual expulsion. of those who have managed to take refuge in Europe.

For us, this strategy opens the doors of power to the extreme right by accepting its rhetoric and putting into practice its policy. As each time it feels cornered, the bourgeoisie instrumentalise the misery to retain its power and inflected his speech more and more to the right until it merges with that of the extreme right.

This policy of state racism and xenophobia announces the color: dikes are jumping on all scales and institutions, whether local, national or international, are rushing into the populist breach to maintain the illusion of control. While solidarity across the whole of Europe against the survivors of imperialist, neo-colonial and economic wars is organized as best they can, the ruling class is increasingly attacking those who struggle with their wars. sides by brutally repressing them and criminalizing their support actions.

We fight these injustices and the violence of the state every day. We reject the terms of the debate on migration imposed on us by a minority of bourgeois and racists, worried that everywhere in the world, their unjust social order and their illusory power is limited to a single thread. that capitalism disintegrates. We stand for the destruction of borders and the international solidarity of the majority against oppression and oppression. We have nothing to fear from difference and everything to gain because the future lies in mutual aid and cooperation and not in the narrow vision of the world of some powerful.

Let's organize everywhere to continue the fight against the far right and its ideas, in Europe and in the rest of the world, locally and internationally. Down borders and state violence for a popular and international anti-fascism !
