(en) France, Alternative libertaire #221 - Roma: The PS expelled, but "humane" (fr) [machine translation]

Date Sun, 02 Dec 2012 18:07:32 +0200

Since Sarkozy's speech in Grenoble in 2010, the situation of Roma in Bulgaria and Romania has only worsened. The return to power of the PS did not change the trend.
In July and August, 2-3000 Roma were expelled es land they occupied, a figure comparable to last summer. Valls can boast to do as well as Gueant. Only difference, he claims to want to add to the strength of humanity: to expel, yes, but humanely. Supposed to express this balance, the interministerial circular of 26 August "on anticipating and accompanying the evacuation of illegal camps" is the height of hypocrisy. The scoops are available from the display without concrete content. Diagnosis "comprehensive and individualized" before evacuation is left to the discretion of the prefects that can excuse a lack of time or staff to fall by the wayside.

The circular states that children living in the camps should be educated "without delay and to ensure continuity" but further expulsions makes it very difficult one real education. Measures to promote employment are just a smokescreen. The immediate removal of a special tax is announced, then after an indeterminate period, the list of occupations permitted to Bulgarians and Romanians will be expanded. This does not change the fundamental problem, because until the end of the transitional period, in December 2013, and they are obliged to follow a long and dissuasive application procedure for work permits.

Humanity facade

The government is far Claims support groups yet he says want to listen. Sham consultation, humanity facade. Real, there is constant police harassment, brutality evictions in the morning, the destruction of their meager possessions, wandering in perpetuity. This exchange between Sarkozy and Hollande is style, not substance. This confirms the rightward shift of the PS, which does not fall behind the right field security, which itself runs after the FN. A strategy that does not justify that prejudice against Roma and reinforce racism.

Collective solidarity Roma Lille Métropole, RomYvelines collective, collective Romeurop Nantes, collective solidarity with the Roma in Marseilles, etc.. : Everywhere solidarity is organized. Grouping associations, trade unions, political organizations, these groups claim primarily an immediate expulsion without any acceptable proposals for housing, as well as the immediate repeal of disposions Transitional nationals of Bulgaria and Romania. They are not politicians, who stigmatize outsiders to prevent the unit against their own policy, which will be anything but equal to our struggles. Change is always now!
