(en) France, Coordination Groups Anarchistes CGA IAL #93 Fire crisis: A st Denis season evictions and class war knows no truce (fr) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 31 Dec 2012 10:04:32 +0200

Housing CGA ---- The financial crisis and the debt crisis reinforce deep and lasting crisis: the housing crisis. Fabricated by the owners, the state and municipalities, the traditional lever of capitalism to maintain operations, it should be noted that it has increased in the wake of attacks related to these crises. If popular cities are affected first, multiplying evictions of tenants, squatter-Artists may well become a reality for all. This is what happens in other neighboring countries where the attacks are linked to the crisis stronger: Spain, Greece, United States. ---- ST Denis renovation rhymes with expulsion ---- A Saint Denis, a town awash in work: target of urban renewal, the city signed in 2010 PNRQAD (National Plan for Redevelopment Districts Veterans Gradients).

Combining state, municipalities, developers and it is a boon for hunting conducted in poor neighborhoods. Indeed, under the pretext of renovating houses and fight against health hazards, they displace, expel, expropriate and makes it impossible for former es-es capita access to new housing (too expensive, higher ceilings for social leases ). A St Denis where 34% of dwellings are unsafe in the center, the plan 150 1,200 demolitions and housing rehabilitation. Season expulsions knows no truce.

A Saint Denis, prefecture and municipality continue to increase deportations of buildings. This was in an area near the station Charles Michel, buildings were expelled after the fire, another building in the neighborhood station is expelled. And when fire destroyed a building unsafe as wildfire, mayor and state in the blood mark their contempt for these tenants: no relocation, two nights after the torn social threat of occupation of the labor exchange . A fable racist against other examples of this type of drama. Indeed, a large part of the inhabitants-es were undocumented, and you always racialized-s (suffering racism). It will require the mobilization of stricken es themselves, still in shock that the mayor and the state are driven to find solutions.

Fire: the tree that hides the forest

What happened in St Denis at the time of fire, it is the tree that hides the forest, the epitome of this class war led to the poor. On the night of Saturday 8 to Sunday, September 9, a fire broke out at 39, rue Gabriel Peri, Saint-Denis, killing two people and leaving forty homeless people. Despite the announcement of the Minister C. Duflot immediate relocation of damaged-es, es some of capita-es of 39 do not even have emergency accommodation solution in the evening of 9 September (es some of them and of them were denied access to health care in hospitals, and without official paper of the municipality of Saint-Denis, to the social check-in Noisy-le-Sec-es have been forced to sleep outside ). The next night, emergency solutions are known, are for everyone until very late in the evening. A rally was held Tuesday, September 11 in front of the fire building, where capita-es and activists come together and decide to invest room the Labour Exchange to meet and consider the follow-up to the fight for relocation of capita-es. Therefore, activists, permanent es associations (DAL ...), sometimes close to the mayor in place, pose a strongly hierarchical control framework (tinged with paternalism latent) dédouanant mayor of responsibility and directing capita-es to bring their claims to the Department, when we know that the council has the ability to commandeer unoccupied. A demonstration is scheduled for tomorrow, news are written to organize the struggle and the balance of power in front of the town hall. Before the event, and in a context even harder, since a new person has succumbed to his injuries, capita-es decided to occupy the Basilica of Saint-Denis to put pressure on the mayor and the prefecture in order to their right to immediate and permanent relocation, Saint-Denis. After a night of occupation and negotiations with the prefect, the damaged-es are offered a solution that is not satisfactory: they will be hosted es, until 1 st October in a social hotel in Saint-Denis . The accommodations were extended but the struggle remains to be done!

But what is unsafe? This is the slumlords who have full place in the city, it is the right of ownership and the laws that mark their unconditional support to the owners, it is the mayor who hardens the conditions for recognition of unsafe and leaves do slumlords. In the center, many slumlords are day and night for many tenants and sub-tenants. They leave rotting homes and extort every month tenants rents skyrocketing. Made from scratch, unhealthy is nothing inevitable.

And the mayor will stop at nothing to save face! A mail delivered the day after the occupation of the Basilica of St Denis in all boxes of the city reported, "After the fire on the night of 8 to 9 September, which caused the death of two people, the entire municipality has mobilized alongside the victims and their families "(e" Absorb the slums private emergency "). "Mobilized"? Torn at first by mobilizing disaster: two nights office, a fee of 8 euros per day for four days proposed to es-stricken who had lost all their papers, and had no roof over their heads the aftermath of the tragedy.

What lessons can we learn from this fight and what are the prospects for intervention are considered to be active, as anarchists in the struggle housing?

-Exit the emergency is not involved in charity as support to damaged or es-es expelled, but as people are concerned, the problems of poor housing and / or deported. We are all concerned and all-es by housing policies that aim to make war on the poor pretext of fighting against unhealthy: they pay rent ruining, which is ill-housed-es, that we know the unhealthy

-Exit the emergency is to act upstream of evictions to create class solidarities that are based on the interests of each person to organize his neighbor-e.

-Exit the emergency is locate in a neighborhood, act locally through leaflets broadcasts through collages to make visible the presence of militants, to educate capita-es to subject, to create horizontal solidarities between the main and main-'re concerned.
