(en) [France] Call to international solidarity By ANA (pt) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 9 Feb 2019 11:33:15 +0200

In France, since November 17, a social movement of unprecedented magnitude has taken shape and is spreading throughout the country. We, called "yellow vests," occupy and block, take to the streets, face the repressive apparatus, sabotage, debate and dream of a better future! This movement is characterized by the action of the participants. The rulers fear the reappearance of direct action, preferring that the exploited of this world remain silent participating in the electoral farce. We organize from the grassroots, reject the representatives and thus avoid that power has its usual connections to weaken the struggle. ---- The state can only count on the police to return home. And it uses it like never before ... In the last decades, the security policies have been reinforced throughout the world. These policies allow the capitalist class to protect itself and try to survive. This is why fighting allows us to develop practices and means to defend ourselves. We are facing new police weapons, new laws for new offenses, new prisons. In France, the repressive arsenal is steadily increasing and repeated statements of the state of emergency have given carte blanche to the police and justice.

The levels of repression achieved in recent weeks are alarming and clearly try to establish fear so that we stop fighting, mutilating and arresting ourselves. We can not share a detailed account of the violence suffered, as we do not have all the necessary information. However, we can say that there have been thousands of arrests, among which are pending legal proceedings, which count hundreds of convictions and dozens of people imprisoned. Several investigations were initiated in relation to looting and fire. In addition, a person injured by a tear gas grenade has died. There are also several people in coma after receiving flash-ball shots on the head, 4 people lost their hand (ripped off by a GL4 F4 grenade bearing TNT), 12 people lost an eye, including a person who has definitely lost his hearing. and hundreds of people mutilated in different ways (fractures, shattered faces, ripped cheeks ...).

Most people convicted are workers, with or without work and often without money and alone. For us revolutionaries, it is very important to express our active solidarity with those convicted and imprisoned and demand their release. There are instruments in various cities to express their solidarity (pressure groups, funds to support the prisoners ...) The movement requires the general amnesty. However, given the magnitude of the situation, we do not have sufficient means to cover all needs. That is why we ask for the solidarity (financial, logistical, political ...) of the revolutionaries of the world so that the opinions against nationalism can be expressed, which is necessary regardless of the side of the border where we are.
