(en) France, Union Communiste Libertaire AL #298 - The far right strengthens its grip (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Tue, 29 Oct 2019 08:59:51 +0200


Since the 1940s, far-right ideas have never been so present. In all political currents, nationalism and populism make a worrying return to the rise to power of characters claiming fascist ideology. From the United States to Brazil from Bolsonaro, from India to the United Kingdom, the list of far-right governments is becoming irremediable as capitalism continues to be in crisis. ---- Everywhere they muzzle social movements and lead to an ever-increasing oppression of women and gender minorities, foreigners and foreigners, with or without documents and, more generally, workers. Even if, for the moment, the state institutions seem to resist the control without sharing of the power by the nationalists, they are nonetheless incapable of slowing down the advance of the brown plague when they do not prepare a boulevard by repressing them fiercely. the anti-fascist activists. Overview of this widespread rise of the extreme right.

Nostalgia for South American dictatorships
Donald Trump is not the first populist to become president of the United States, but his unfiltered wordless porridge and inhumane laws directed at foreign, non-binary, Amerindian and more generally the oppressed are clearly distinguishable from him. his predecessors. Behind him, the entire Republican conservative party assumes, promotes and applies its racist, homophobic, patriarchal and liberal policies.

Proof of this is that, since his election, the rallies of the white nationalists have become more and more urgent and, more recently, the manifesto of the mass murderer of El Paso literally took up Trump's rhetoric about the migrants. · Mexican art. More worrying still, the government's desire to target anti-fascist activists is reflected in the desire to declare anti-fascist organizations as terrorists. While in the United States, the number of deaths linked to far-right activities has been steadily increasing over the last decade, and racist killings by the police have been on the news, the crackdown is still on the front lines. those who fight against hatred.

In Brazil, Jair Bolsanero takes up Trump's campaign rhetoric word for word to win the 2018 elections. This former military officer, nostalgic of the dictatorship, has even declared that he wants to annihilate all the organizations of the social movement by threatening them with a purge if they did not leave the country. These threats are not in vain: the number of police killings has exploded since the victory of Bolsanero. The watchdogs of capital are therefore released and Brazilians are not the only ones to pay the costs.

The fires in the Amazon rainforest and the government's stated willingness to exploit these lands are causing not only Brazil but the entire planet in a disastrous spiral of ravaging ecosystems. Here again, the nationalist discourse is reinforced and serves as a justification. The conspiracy delusions of the Brazilian president even push him to accuse the NGOs of having turned on the fires to damage his reputation.

Hindu supremacists attack cashmere
Since 2014, and for the first time in 30 years, the BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party, Hindu nationalist party) has managed to obtain an absolute majority in the Indian parliament. In 2019, the most populous of modern democracies confirmed these results by reinforcing its absolute majority of about twenty seats.

Violence against minority Muslim communities has exploded, and summary arrests of opponents of the regime, once again based on false pretexts of terrorism, have become the daily lot of people in conflict.

With its majority, the government implements the entire state apparatus to silence disputes and violently repress anyone who tries to oppose the BJP. This violence is also expressed by the expansionist will of Modi through the annexation of Kashmir last August. This territory, which has been in conflict for over 60 years with Pakistan, has become an Indian province after the repeal of its exceptional status. The escalation of tensions between India and Pakistan, both of which have atomic weapons, is likely to provoke a major conflict that could rush the entire region into war. Nationalism exacerbated by hatred will cause the destruction of entire populations, and the first victims will be, again, those who are the most oppressed.

In Europe, the salvini model
This dark picture would not be complete without mentioning Europe and the nationalist and populist victories in the chain. In Germany, Alternative für Deutchland continues its rise to power. After gaining a dozen seats in parliament, the far-right party is gaining ground as local elections progress. In Italy, Salvini's maneuver to call early elections has certainly failed, but he knows that time is in his favor. And the coalition between the populists of the 5-star movement and the social democrats will not last long.

In Spain, Andalusia saw Franco's return to the local parliament, and in the United Kingdom, it was Boris Johnson, ersatz of Trump who directs the government towards a Brexit without agreements. Not to mention that in Poland and Hungary the fascists are already well settled and do not seem to be backing down.

Organizing the international response
The rise of the extreme right to power is a phenomenon rooted in the violence of capitalism, patriarchy, racism and all other systems of oppression. Fascism is the culmination of this deadly logic that aims to " purify "Everything that does not fit in their shackles and he must fight here and now on pain of seeing the filthy beast come back and with him his procession of war, genocide and misery. We must fight his ideas wherever they speak, starting by supporting the fight against fascism locally and internationally. We must continue to denounce this race of nationalism and populism, whatever the camp that claims it, to establish a real solidarity with our comrades who fight oppressions and aspire, like us, to an egalitarian society and solidarity Today as yesterday, the anti-fascist struggle is international ! No Pasaran !
