(en) France, Alternative Libertaire #225 - Domination racist colonies neighborhoods (fr) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 18 Feb 2013 09:12:22 +0200

The colonial legacy security policies carried out today in the neighborhoods is reflected in the strategies of policing, with the reactivation of the figure of the "enemy within". ---- Many security elements from the colonial legacy are fully transposed and implemented in the country, specifically in areas called popular (QP). This is to place on these neighborhoods police surveillance at all times through a tight grid and multiple controls. This repression is directly inspired by the colonial model. Today, as in colonial times, it is to pacify, to regain territories to educate savages or barbarians, adapt our devices necessarily "civilized." ---- Colonial war as a reference ----

Political practices, police or law clearly refer to the colonial context, with a view of preventive war: facies controls repeated curfew, a ban on rallies in building lobbies, criminalization and financial penalties for parents of young considered "deviant." Any challenge to the inhabitants and residents of neighborhoods was immediately politicized, racialized and criminalized.

It is indeed an emergency legislation. The security thinking was driven from the reformulation of devices designed to control the colonial war. The construction of the Immigration and neighborhoods as a danger involved the representation of a global threat, allowing the promotion of a safe and militarized control total. Mathieu Rigouste demonstrates how speech and the terms of the colonial war are used as a reference technique of security thinking, between pure extension, reformulations and rearrangements [Rigouste Mathieu, "The police domination, violence industry"].

Current models of intervention policies (to practice psychological warfare) found, for example their roots in the Battle of Algiers. Fantasy new threats legitimate monitoring devices extremes, terrorizing the population, making live under constant pressure. Institutions (schools, media ...) support these last practicing psychological conditioning to prepare the mentality, to make them accept a spirit of defense against threats made.

The reproduction and restructuring mechanisms colonial policing is used to assert dominance police on a population living in social apartheid.

Organize themselves against state violence

Memory struggles is built through confrontations with the police. The last thirty years have been marked by recurring fire QP, the "rodeo Minguettes" in 1981 to the riots of November 2005. These revolts have highlighted the systematic and disproportionate to the strength and control. The strengthening of the security and police power, reinforced by ten years sarkozysme calls us to position ourselves against the colonialist management districts. This is to show our solidarity with the victims of police violence, those who suffer repression and support all victims of discrimination. Reveals that the treatment of QP is deeply racist nature of the French state, right or left.
