(en) France, Union Communiste Libertaire - Facing transphobia: let's organize resistance! (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Wed, 23 Oct 2019 09:16:30 +0300

This 19th of October will take place the 23rd ExistransInter march, a march of protest for the rights of trans and intersex people. This march aims to defend the self-determination of trans people and / or intersex and denounce the trampling of their rights and their health for decades. This year, trans, intersex people and their allies are calling for support for access to trans migrants' rights of residence, access to the PMA for trans people and condemn the mutilation of intersex people, racist laws on immigration who imprison, expel trans and intersex people seeking asylum and limit any recourse. ---- The eviction of trans people from the PMA and the half-hearted measures of the government for the trans people (insufficient circular on the change of first name, maintenance of the change of civil status in a judicial procedure demedicalized only theoretically) reflect the influence and the pressure of the camp of the reactionary bourgeoisie, represented, among others, by the "Manif for all" who explicitly target trans people. They can only encourage homophobic and transphobic acts, at a time when the leaders of the state send complacent signals to the reactionaries.

Trans people, even more so when they are migrants, are forced to face real obstacles to access medical treatment, including hormonal and surgical, necessary for their journey, or to make a change of civil status and see issuing identity papers of the kind in which they live.

This state transphobia relays and reinforces the transphobia caused by a patriarchal system, which perpetuates the idea that being a man or a woman is a fact of nature, caused by genetics, whereas it is about social constructs, oppression relationship between a dominant group and a dominated group. This ambient transphobia creates a very precarious situation for trans people, who have great difficulty finding a job or having access to health. In addition, trans people are subjected to violence, whether in the street, at work, in the family or in the couple, by the police, in prisons, etc.

Against transphobia, fight against patriarchy !
As libertarians, we believe that only self-organized struggles and self-management will allow us to break out of such systems, which benefit those who have an interest in preserving them. Such self-organization can only be truly effective if the people concerned can now fully take their place in the militant organizations of their choice and in the struggles. Therefore, we commit ourselves daily against sexism, homophobia, transphobia, racism, state domination and capitalist exploitation, and carry our demands of rupture, for a libertarian and egalitarian society.

Finally, in the continuity of the Exitransinter march, we call to mobilize on November 20, 2019, for the Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDoR), international day that celebrates the memory of the trans people murdered around the world, and to support all the the rest of the year, initiatives aiming at the emancipation and self-determination of trans people.
