(en) Canada, This is not a club: This is domination by Libertarian Communist Union - UCL- Press on police brutality in the Number 728 (fr) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 20 Oct 2012 11:20:55 +0200

Compared to Police Brutality tolerable as "opinion", right student crisis, the new recurrence Number 728 of Police of the City of Montreal sows visibly emotion, fueled by sensational stories in the media abundant . The Libertarian Communist Union added its voice to the flow of consternation. But once again, the Empire of 1% absolutely "both hands on the wheel" to control channel and a challenge "reasonable" to the perpetuation of the establishment. The greatest form of violence, said Emma Goldman, is ignorance. Unlike negating worldview imposed by the ruling class, society is marked no less violent conflicts net in the crash and the daily operations of the classes oppressed by the privileged es-es. We do not claim to neutrality. The UCL will always defend the oppressed classes are.

If we encourage popular mobilization against police brutality, we do not think less than "728 incident" is a new case from the rule as a social relation. Since its inception, the institution was the police arm of the state to maintain a dummy order, by force correlated with the tenacity and independence of the dominated classes. Aboriginal and Métis women, the poor, immigrants, anarchists and socialists rebels, precarious and unionized workers, queers, unemployed, ...: the main targets are designated as criminal-it-s,-es profile and thus, taxed es tickets, es harassed, beaten-es, es ... then imprisoned for the prosperity and security of a few aristocrats full of vanity, at the top of the social pyramid.

The level of expression and physical appearance of the police raised a number of comments and "jokes" sexist, homophobic and misogynist that we do not denounce less than the incident itself. Women's Committee for the UCL, they reinforce gender roles and relationships in which women are the main victims of violence, and not just from the police. Men wearing these disparaging outright undermine the potential for popular mobilization. To those who are in favor of equality between the sexes, we tell them that their claims are worthless at the top of their gender privileges. If they are sincere, they can consider other men who wear such statements and judgments.

At a time when it is the police investigating the corruption of political parties, we should question the Mafia culture existing within the latter. The absence of recourse against the police abuse leaves its victims by cutting it. What about a system of ethics where agents can refuse complaints when it is in their interest. A system in the same police station, an officer "investigation" on his colleagues. Where, in very few cases, complaints have resulted in reprimands, and virtually no (even when the police murdered), do not put an end to the dangerous career. The discussion circle officer, told by a witness, in which Number 728 has changed the version of events with a dozen of his colleagues, is quite representative of the culture of silence in the police (and well official "Oath discretion "). Only recall that in 2008, an agent of Sept-Îles station broke the silence on trafficking in weapons of its leader and his colleagues was the victim of harassment and accusations ("threats of death or bodily harm to the place of a superior ") - a story far more widespread than we think.

As libertarian communists, we seek to build a society in which we can eliminate violence in our social relations, a company whose order will be self-regulated by the combination of full equality and full freedom of each and every individual and the collective management Federal direct democracy by our challenges. Despite the new trend of diffusion of social media, it is necessary to remember that the majority of police brutality continues to happen in the indifference and tolerance quasi-general? What the protesters are living spring is what many other layers are further marginalized population-suffer for ages? It is vain to expect a police reform. Ask the thousands of victims of the severe humanitarian crisis caused by the police at the G20 in Toronto, who have seen all their demands independent investigation of ridicule! Through new social crises, we will make the necessary historical gymnastics to develop the popular self-organization able to break the curse.
