(en) France, Union Communiste Libertaire - Let's break the Islamophobic offensive, let's react together (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Sun, 20 Oct 2019 09:08:55 +0300

At the highest summit of the state, Islamophobia is now completely assumed. Muslim people or considered as such are in danger. The urgency is for a strong response. UCL calls on all those who want to fight for equality to react together. ---- A minister calling to report " little boys who refuse to hold the hand of girls ." The same, Jean-Michel Blanquer, denouncing a few weeks ago the CIPF, association of parents who had dared to publish a poster defending the right to accompany school trips for all and representing a mother of a student wearing a veil . ---- A President of the Republic calling for a " society of vigilance " to hunt down the " weak signals " of " radicalization ", targeting all Muslim people or considered as such and already raising disturbing reports , as at the University of Cergy.

The signal is clear: it is a true license to discriminate that is issued !
Of course Le Pen's National Rally is not left out: we saw it at the Regional Council of Burgundy where the elected RNs verbally assaulted and threatened a veiled woman in full assembly.

But it must be said very clearly, Islamophobia is not the reserved domain of the extreme right: it is now widely relayed by " public authorities ", by media and agitators of hate, all over the political spectrum institutional. The government wants to point out a so-called " inner enemy ", in the midst of social mobilization elsewhere.

It is thus the craftsman of a true " identity panic " that will strike the people designated as Muslim with what it involves daily stigmatization, insults, humiliation, aggression against them.

There can be no equality under conditions or conditions.

UCL brings its solidarity to the victims of Islamophobia and considers it necessary to react strongly and widely: from day to day the Islamophobic offensive is growing, it is urgent to stop and break this racist mechanism !

UCL wishes and is available for a unitary initiative in the sense that could be found all political organizations, trade unions, associations decided to fight for equality.
