(en) CORRECTION [Peru] Anarchofeminist statement against xenophobia and patriarchy. No borders, no flags!, By ANA (ca, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 31 Dec 2018 07:27:09 +0200

The arrival of Venezuelan migrants has produced an archaic patriot and nationalist sentiment in various sectors of Peruvian society, which is translated into xenophobia, intolerance and racism against newcomers. An unacceptable speech between activists and collectives who aspire to build a less violent society against the most vulnerable people. For this reason, the anarchofeminists speak [on the International Day of the Immigrant, celebrated on Friday, December 15]: ---- Migration is a completely normal phenomenon throughout human history. Just as our mothers and grandmothers arrived in Lima decades ago fleeing the violence and misery of the interior of the country, encountering racism and discrimination on the part of Limenhos, now Venezuelans are seeking a better future for their families. Also like many Peruvians who left the country. They should not be subjected to violence by governments, police forces and even less of some intolerant sectors of society.

It is argued that more people in Lima, eager to get a decent job, will increase unemployment by having to compete more people with each other. This banal argument totally contradicts the logic of any anticapitalist movement, in which it is made clear that THE TRULY GUILTY OF UNEMPLOYMENT AND EXPLOITATION ARE ENTREPRENEURS AND POLITICIANS . The first to take advantage of the misery of Peruvians and migrants to choose to pay increasingly inhuman wages and the latter to increasingly weaken labor rights, giving more tools to exploiters. It is not necessary to remember that capitalist exploitation is a world phenomenon, and so THE WORKERS OF ALL NATIONALITIES MUST JOIN AGAINST THE EXPLORERS.

Before the patrioteiro speech of supposed defense of the territory against the migrant "invasion", it is necessary to remember that THE BORDERS ARE A INVENTION OF THE BOURGEOUS TO DIVIDE THE AND THE WORKERS. XENOPHOBUS SPEECH IS FUNCTIONAL TO CAPITALISM , because nothing makes the explorer entrepreneur more cheerful than seeing the poor fighting each other instead of united fighting against him.

It is also ironic that this trumpist speech[Donald Trump]has stilled between activists and supposedly "anti-systemist" and "anti-capitalist" movements who seem to have forgotten internationalism and class solidarity. At the height of incoherence, many exemplify the migratory policies of capitalist and racist governments that repress their own people, such as Chile de Piñera, the United States of Trump, and the future Brazil of Bolsonaro.

Regarding migrants in particular, because of their status as women who are foreigners in a sexist and misogynist society such as here, they are in a SITUATION OF DOUBLE VULNERABILITY. It shows that two Venezuelan women have been raped by police officers, cases that remain unpunished. Likewise, since their arrival, Venezuelans have been subjected to harassment and racist and macho stereotypes regarding their appearances, in order to minimize cases of gender-based violence perpetrated against them. Venezuelans were sexually harassed by the mass media and social networks, reproducing in them to a greater degree the same prejudices as with Peru. In the same way, unfortunately, many migrants are sexually exploited by mafias who strip them of their documents, knowing that any crime against them will fall into impunity. Some are separated from their relatives, from their daughters. Most of these women do not have state backing. SORORITY AND FEMINISM GO HANDS ON WITH INTERNATIONALISM .

While the sectors that say they are concerned about the increase in population that could lead to unemployment and poverty, it is curious that they call violence against migrants, when these same groups have sustained an anti-rights discourse against ABORTION DESCRIMINALIZATION and GENDER NAFO EDUCATION , measures that really would serve to control the population without the need to exert violence against anyone.

To conclude, although we anarchists oppose oppressive institutions and governments, we do see the recognition of the rights of vulnerable sectors of society, such as women, LGBTI people, workers, indigenous people, peasants and migrants Therefore, we repudiate any event of alleged protest against any policy that prohibits the State, the repressive Police and the institutions, from exercising violence and discrimination against the migrants.

We will be alert against any hate speech that comes to unmask you.
