(en) France, Alternative Libertaire #223 - Against religions: Fight all systems of domination (fr) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 14 Jan 2013 10:51:15 +0200

If it is necessary to oppose the stigmatization of Muslims and Muslim Alternative libertarian wants to develop a battle against all forms of racism and against religious oppression. We give here the reasons. ---- We will not here the analysis of Pierre Tévanian about the rise of the current stigmatization of Muslims and Muslim. Alternative libertarian agrees with this analysis, especially when secularism or feminism are called in by the reaction to point the finger at people from North Africa and black Africa. --- Neither law nor sail! --- However, and this is what differentiates us from Pierre Tévanian, Alternative libertarian denouncing the trap women taken between contempt and Republican "tradition", which imposes the veil, the niqab sometimes symbols of domination on the body women.

We will never support any repressive legislation on these issues, because they repress women and they are part of a stigmatization of populations from former colonies. But we do not intend to silence our critics on the role that religions - all religions - assign women.

Religious ideologies are complex systems, recovering at a more or less significant elements "progressive" or "liberators". Regularly and religious institutions can serve as "place of organization" of subordinated groups. But the religions, all of which call for the subjugation against a deity superior to humanity, have been, are and will always be systems of domination.

Combat all forms of racism
Racism is a reality multiforme. Its aim is always to stigmatize part of the population. Through discrimination and violence symbolic and physical, it is to divide the mass fractions are dominated-antagonists. In Western Europe today, racism is the dominant pariah in the guise of vague "Muslim" and envelope the archetype of all the fears of Western society. But other forms of racism persist and sometimes get featured in the media system, against Roma, Jews, Asians, black people of Dom-Tom ... Racism is more colonial than ever. And we fight against racism must never cease to be global under penalty of being weakened.

In the end, our fight against all systems of domination we impose a complex position. We can not satisfy a posture where Islamophobia is the alpha and omega of the fight against racism. We can not mothball our criticism of religions, so also Islam, because a significant portion of these victims of racism, especially those from North Africa and black Africa, recognize this religion.

Criticize religions, believers meet
Say "theoretically" our comrades from North Africa Sub-Saharan Africa as they are they're French or not-or that they are Muslim or not-es are our equals and our equal is not enough. To make this a reality it is necessary to respect even when they do they are believing es.

It is this respect that allows progress in building a true exchange and solidarity beyond the divisions 'religious', and thus to understand - and share - the basis of our criticism of religions. Faced with the rise of the "religious" fight against racism finds its extension in a review of all systems of domination and in particular the traditions of domination over women and addiction archaic religion. We will never be complicit in a system of domination for another fight!
