(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #282 - Documentary: «317» (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Sun, 6 May 2018 08:59:00 +0300

317 is the number of people in custody on November 29, 2015, following a climate demonstration in Paris, in full COP 21. It will also be the name of a collective, and the documentary self-produced to witness what happened that day, through a mosaic of first-person stories, read texts or replayed scenes. ---- The film gives a large place to the experience of the police, to the consequences, even long after the events, of the brutal repression of the procession but especially of the violences undergone far from the cameras. If the cloud of tear that stifled the procession on arrival, Republic Square, is evoked, it is the face-to-face with the police who left the most traces: insults, death threats , grotesque insinuations at the address of the women questioned, and even the barrel of this machine gun aimed at the face of one of the protesters, hidden from view, in the privacy of a van.

The shock first, then the fear that remains, the awareness of vulnerability to a considerable power of repression, are also analyzed in the framework of a reflection on the strategies of " maintenance of order " of the State . The context was that of anti-terrorist frenzy, two weeks after deadly attacks, whose deaths were quickly instrumentalised to target opponents and political opponents. A sociologist, a political scientist, a lawyer, a historian and activists take turns analyzing the evolution of penal policies and state violence. Thus, the use in the law of the category of " terrorism "Since the 1980s, expanded to include any questioning of social structures, is paralleled with the management of international summits by the state, between need for media visibility and need to silence the challenge. Eric Fassin also gives interesting insights into the game of the police and the state, the latter granting more autonomy to the one he needs. The documentary perfectly manages to make the link between this particular event that was the repression of the march for the climate and the slip in a state of permanent exception.

Note the political openness of Samir Baaloudj, a former activist of the Movement for Immigration and the suburbs, which recalls that this scandalous violence in the heart of Paris has been suffered daily for decades by the inhabitants and inhabitants of the suburbs.
