(en) [France] Fascist violence, Chamber complicit! By ANA (fr, pt) [machine translation]
Sat, 14 Apr 2018 09:42:03 +0300
Communiqué of the Coordination of the Anarchist Groups (CGA) after the concentration of
26/03 in front of the City Hall and the unambiguous position of the Central Chamber about
the space "Social Bastion". ---- The CNT space attack on the night of March 30 to 31
confirms the urgency of expanding popular mobilization by closing all fascist spaces. ----
The city of Lyon, an accomplice of fascist violence. ---- On March 26, 2018, a collective
meeting was held, which CGA Lyon is part of, to close the "Pavillon Noir". ---- The
objective of this concentration, programmed at the request of the inhabitants, was to
demand a position of the Central Chamber during a municipal council on the situation of
Lyon and the recurrent establishment of spaces of extreme right. ---- Indeed, in the
meetings held, the inhabitants of the neighborhood in question were more than dismayed by
the public authorities' attitudes about space, the "Pavillon Noir" and its occupants very
close to the neo-Nazi media. Lyon: there would only be a simple Health and Safety control,
and they were informed that the inhabitants themselves would have to dialogue with the
neo-Nazis of the "Gud Bastion Social" in case of neighborhood problems!
As if we could talk to them without risking reprisal!
What would be the position of Gerard Collomb's successor in the Chamber of Lyon? Would it,
at least, protect the inhabitants of the neighborhood by taking a clear stand against
As expected, nothing done!
Here is the answer from Mr Képénekian, Mayor of Lyon:
"We are extremely attentive to this issue. I can only reaffirm the commitment of our city
that the district classified as Vieux Lyon, do not become their meeting point. Once this
reformulated statement can imagine that it takes multiple, different time, forms and
devices, but believe that we have this determination. "
Does the Mayor of Lyon live in the same world as the inhabitants of the 5th arrondissement
to declare the will of the city of Lyon that Vieux Lyon does not become a meeting point
for the fascists?
The Mayor of Lyon lives in the same world as the inhabitants of the 5th arrondissement to
affirm with such bad faith that there is and there would be a real desire of the Central
Chamber to avoid that Vieux Lyon becomes a meeting point of fascists while denouncing it
several years ago?
Should we remind you again that since 2010 various spaces and trades managed by local
fascists and neo-Nazis have gradually implanted? Should we remind him of the numerous
attacks attributed to the far right of Lyon?
Should we remind you of the ordeal of the inhabitants, associations and professionals of
the neighborhood in question?
As we said in our speech during the 26/03, therefore as in 2011 (with the closure of the
Bunker Korps - Gerland neo-Nazis), we will have to increase popular mobilization, support
(as tonight) o) The inhabitants, continue to inform the neighborhoods concerned to develop
the fight for the closure of the "Pavillon Noir".
We also have an obligation to rebuild neighborhood self-defense and a surveillance network
to counter the incursions and fascist attacks left unattended by public authorities.
Anyway, obviously, side by side with the people directly affected, we will continue to
denounce the complicity of the Central Chamber of Lyon.
Fascist Violence, Chamber Accomplice!
Fascist Spaces, Accomplice Chamber!
The CNT space attack on 30/03 reinforces our determination to organize ourselves in the
neighborhoods and to develop the struggle at the base.
All our solidarity with the comrades!
