(en) Coordination of Anarchist Groups (CGA) - Until the abolition of marriage ... Marriage for all! (fr) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 31 Dec 2012 12:52:33 +0200

Anti-patriarchy ---- Lille - GDALE ---- Until the abolition of marriage ... Marriage for all! ---- Heterosexuality is a single standard of life and the relationship between the individual · e · s standard defined by the capitalist system and patriarchy. It is one of the foundations of the system of domination that we face, which alienates some and oppress others. ---- Hope some and some had founded in changing the "political staff" at the head of the state, has quickly turned into real doubt as to the evolution of society in the relational and interpersonal, to name a few. The opening of the possibility of marriage to homosexual couples is the loincloth who would still have us believe that the Socialist Party has a policy on the left. More equality between individuals and individual liberty, it is conceivable that in a societal framework which will emancipatory is the real engine of the proposed changes, a society in which the various systems of domination were abolished. We are counting!

System and hétéropatriarcal cissexiste * has again and again, every day, its symbolic violence, physical and sexual violence against women, lesbians, gays, bi · e · s, trans people and intersex. In this context, to earn the right to "marriage for everyone "and the right to adoption for same-sex couples will not end the situation of verbal and physical violence, suffered by individu.es that are cis * men not straight.

Marriage remains an institution related to the patriarchal society and state that we reject. It is the foundation of the traditional nuclear family - a heterosexual couple and possibly their children, the basic unit of patriarchy. It is the formalization of the appropriation of women's bodies by men and the soil of gender-based violence and sexual abuse. "Marriage for All" is shown as a breakthrough that will allow lesbians and gay couples access to the same material benefits that straight couples. However, it will not get rid of homophobia.

For several weeks, the public space is saturated hexagonal violently homophobic speech. Mobilization of 17 and 18 November scroll saw tens of thousands of people came to demonstrate against the bill opening marriage to gay couples. On November 17, a broad political coalition brought together everything that the country can hold family advocates, the extreme right to the left thinking well. On 18 November, a group of fascist factions and fractions came pouring his homophobia by force, batons and violence. Complicit silence accompanies these violent demonstrations and hateful. More generally, they fall in a reaffirmation virulent patriarchal order which is also accompanied by such attacks against the right to abortion.

Marriage is an institution to be abolished. However, as long as it exists, it is important for us to be accessible to all. If we are in the street, it is neither to defend nor to beg the family to the U.S. State any form of recognition. If we are in the street, it is against all dominations induced heterosexist society whatsoever.

* A person is a person whose cis social sex is the one assigned at birth. The system is cissexisme domination affirming cissexualité as standard, from which the mechanisms of oppression experienced by trans people.


Event for the legal and social equality! Bastille 14h Anti-patriarchy Social Struggles Paris area


whatever our gender identity or our sexuality!

Sunday, December 16 at 14h at Bastille

We will be there to defend an anarchist point of view and distribute the flyer below. In addition, we note the presence of a radical procession was formed at the initiative of feminist organizations, LGBT (Lesbian Gay Bi and Trans), unions and libertarian organizations: it is very likely that you find the edge of it, rather than the socialist youth and their supporters. For us, it is of course no question of coming there to support the ruling party in a lot of popularity. What we want is that the state and the reactionaries of all stripes let us live our sexuality as we understand!

(Text of the leaflet)

Lesbians, gays, bis and trans:
we want everything now!

"What I think is that the basic idea must remain,
for marriage, for couples and for life in general,
that humanity is divided between men and women "
(Lionel Jospin, PS, first ex- Minister, November 9, 2012 on Canal +) "Yes Family, No to homofolie" (Banner of homophobic head of the demonstration of 18 November)

The right-wing fascist left to right-thinking (which include many president, ministers, MPs and other socialist careerists), homophobia is in full swing his last weeks in the streets and in the media. For us, anarchists, it goes without saying that a human being can not be considered inferior to another because of gender identity, sexuality, color of skin, nationality, language it- she speaks, beliefs or social origin. Defend equal rights for tou-te-s seems important and necessary. But that's not all: equal rights won by women after decades of fierce fighting was not enough to stop the oppressive situation in which they find themselves again. The patriarchal system still exerts its daily violence, symbolic, physical and sexual violence against women as a whole. Similarly, to earn the right to marriage or adoption for same-sex couples can not put an end to the daily violence, verbal and physical, that we experience when we dare say our life practices non-heterosexual . Capitalism, patriarchy and racist system with the heterosexual norm it carries, are systems of domination that oppress us and reinforce each other. When we do not have the money or the wrong color to go to places where we can feel safe, equal rights will not protect us. When we show you with our families, our friends or on the street with our friends or our sisters and we're rejected-and beat-es, equal rights will not protect us.

Lesbians, gays, bis, trans or straight, to achieve equality, true, not just on paper, we know that we need to destroy capitalism, patriarchy and heterosexism, racist system of domination and State.

We want to live our lives as we understand it: between men, between women, between men and women, only-e, two or more married-e or not, with or without children, under the same roof or not ... We want to unite for one night or for life, we love and we want where we want and when we want, in the way that seems appropriate.

We want everything! We want the legal and social equality!
We want the abolition of gender and the heterosexual norm!
We want the sexual revolution, feminism, social and libertarian!
