(en) France, Libertarian Communist Union [UCL tract] - Grenelle Violence of Domestic Violence: New Government Smoke ? (fr) [machine translation]

Date Sun, 8 Sep 2019 09:03:13 +0300


Police indifference, derisory budgets of state institutions, scarce resources allocated to associations ... It seems that in matters of feminism and the fight against patriarchy, the state is not the solution but a part of the problem. ---- In early July, hundreds of people rallied against feminicides in Paris, Saint-Denis, Perpignan ... Domestic violence remains largely unpunished in France. A few days earlier, under the pressure of multiple feminist mobilizations, Secretary of State Marlene Schiappa had announced the organization of an exceptional Grenelle, at the beginning, on the issue of domestic violence. But, unlike the government, feminism is not for us a communication operation, it's a matter of life and death!
Every two days a woman is killed. Last year a woman was murdered every three days. The majority of women who were murdered this year complained. Since Macron is in power, more than 520 women have been killed because of a woman. The State intends to remedy this by a budget of 70 million euros against violence against women, or about one euro per inhabitant.

In fact, the government is part of the problem.

The government has confirmed the content of the pension reform resulting in a general impoverishment of women's pensions, putting them increasingly dependent on their companion and weakening them in the face of violence.

- Shelters for women, particularly women victims, continue to be closed.
- The actual breakage of unemployment insurance will push many women out of the field of compensation.
- The government has reduced subsidies for family planning, one of the main associations to fight against violence, up to 30% in some departments
- The silence is the most total on the death of Zineb Redouane, killed by the police forces. In light of all the measures that have just been taken by the government, the "grenelle" is revealed for what it is, of smoking, while one in 10 women experiencing domestic violence and very often, she finds herself alone and without help.

The responsibilities of the state are overwhelming, our resistance must be total! The Libertarian Communist Union calls to support and relay the claims of 35 united families, including a sister, a daughter, a mother, a cousin, was murdered because woman:

- Inscription of the term "feminicide" in the penal code, as a machismo and systemic crime.
- Mobilization of society as a whole on this subject (media, national education ...)

We will also be with Isabelle in her fight for truth and justice for her sister and her two parents, murdered by the former spouse in 2014. In October, she attacked the state on trial for its responsibility in these cases. feminicides and his non-assistance to anyone in danger, despite calls for help at the moment when the assassin was going to act.

We relay the call of the feminists of Saint-Denis that in every city, the women go to the police stations to demand truth justice for all the sisters, the mothers, the girls, the colleagues, the neighbors, who were murdered .

The emancipation of women will be the work of women themselves!

As libertarians, we believe that only self-organized struggles and self-management will allow us to break out of these systems of domination, against those who benefit and who have every interest in preserving them.
