(en) France, Lille*, PS expels two hunger strikers, the struggle continues ... A letter to Mr. Valls metic (fr) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 07 Jan 2013 14:46:04 +0200

Excellency and dear metic, ---- I would that familiarity because we have a common point, we're both French nationals and resident aliens. However, we point that separates us. I do not support hunting metics. ---- Because that is what you know how to organize the line of your predecessors, hunting metics. Oh! I think less right to your predecessors who were only continuing a tradition, I think this great ancestor whose name was Chevènement and has introduced metics as hunting practice left. You add one thing, your métèquerie as if hunting metics you make a little more French. ---- You have shown your skills by showing how you knew to hunt Romms better than your predecessor. You continue to park undesirable aliens in retention centers before expelling them, and to better protect you invent a duty of confidentiality to the associations that help those who are imprisoned in these centers to assert certain rights that they remain.

It is true that, out of respect for democracy, it is better to avoid the dirty work of your services are known. And, far from challenging the laws that your predecessors, Pasqua, Debre Chevènement Sarkozy have put in place to "protect" the France of foreigners who come to escape the political and economic challenges they face in their countries , outsiders often see France as a country that will finally allow them to live the country of Human Rights as some still believe, you keep the same xenophobic practices. But it seems that it is the duty of a minister of police to remind the foreigners that they are wrong to believe that France is welcoming you remember and forcefully. Yet these strangers that you consider as enemies want to live peacefully in our country, as was done a few years ago, your parents.

You should know that some of these foreign sometimes, to remind their existence, hunger strikes that endanger their health and even their lives. Your ancestor favorite Chevènement has already encountered this kind of problem and the fight has never been easy, even if the strikers were often able to obtain the right to stay in France, but at what price!

When right, I mean the real right, which does not need to dress up left, returned to power, it has tougher measures Chevènement was implemented. It was then that the undocumented have obtained the support of the left, which is hoped to give a good image humanist, which can still be used in the elections. Thus, while the City of Lille police sent to quell the hunger strikers when his friends ruled France, she was able, when the line is returned to power, support to undocumented migrants. But the dream did not last long, the left has finally returned to power, and by the grace of his interior minister, has rediscovered the pleasures of hunting metics.

There was a time when the Committee of Undocumented Lille (CSP 59) could meet the Prefecture to defend the records of applicants for regularization and was able to obtain regularization. A prefect decided that it was over. The prefect present continuous refusal and at a meeting with the Committee of Undocumented did know that refer to your circular will solve some cases. It ignores the hunger strike and knows that repression. It is true that a certain tradition opposes the past half-century, Jean Moulin, who was able to choose the prefect resistance to defend freedom and equality against the authorities of the time, and Maurice Papon, who in good servant, obeys orders and participated in the first deportation of Jews from Bordeaux to Drancy and some years later in a massacre of Algerians in Paris. Officially, it is known that Jean Moulin, but ask that the Ministers of the Interior to the prefects is to be Papon, and unfortunately they are. Even when they pretend to make some concessions, they know the question as prefect of Lille, in good minion, has expelled two hunger strikers when he said he would not evictions of strikers before the examination of their records.

If you were a leftist member of a leftist government, you would end this lawless area by facilitating the regularization of undocumented migrants who hope to regain a normal life in our country and you would ask the prefects to the needed to solve this problem. And you could start to bring up to day encounters between the Prefecture of Lille and the Committee of Undocumented Lille meetings that have many adjustments

But it is doubtful that you are a leftist. Your place at the Ministry of the Interior is to enforce the order, ie your order at the expense of men.

All this is very sad. And your métèquerie makes your actions even more intolerable.

I beg you to receive Minister and expensive metic, the expression of my deepest disgust.

Rudolf Bkouche, Professor Emeritus, University of Lille,

former member of the Committee on Legal Affairs Committee of Undocumented 59
