(en) France, STOP THE REPRESSION IN EGYPT! Demonstration february 24th at 3:00 PM at Trocadéro Place in Paris

Date Tue, 19 Feb 2013 16:04:39 +0200

From: relations-internationales@federation-anarchiste.org ---- SOLIDARITY WITH THE LIBERTARIAN SOCIALIST MOVEMENT ! ---- SUPPORT THE EGYPTIAN PEOPLE ! ---- Last Sunday, January 21, several political activists were arrested after the riots provoked by the police in front of Alexandria court of justice. ---- Among them are four members of the Libertarian Socialist Movement, a member of the Revolutionary Socialist organization (Trotskyist) and 16 other unaffiliated. All are activists who fight against the reactionary regime of the Muslim Brotherhood. After January 21, the defendants were wrongfully imprisoned for twenty days. Today, they are released on bail, except the Trotskyist militant, and they all still waiting for their trial.

This sentence is not a coincidence : these activists are deeply involved
in union and neighborhood mobilization, and they are fierce opponents of
the Muslim Brotherhood. This happens in a context in which the police have
shown, for the last few months, great brutality against the protesters and
demonstrators. Besides, all the political activists are followed, receive
anonymous threats and are harassed. Proof of this is the raid against
political activists who distributed leaflets in the streets of Alexandria
a few days after the events of January 21.

The accession to power of the Muslim Brotherhood, after the fall of
Mubarak, does not bring the winds of change, as would have thought those
who believed that after Mubarak everything would be fine. The Islamist
government demonstrated a paranoid absolutism, under the watchful eye of
the military. Their political project is the liquidation of political
opposition, starting with the most radical elements, especially as this
objective is facilitated by the silence of the associations defending
human rights and that of the opposition parties.

Given the explosive social context and the protest mouvement that is
strengthening and radicalizing within the population, the government of
the Muslim Brotherhood does its best for the repression and the abuses
that follow be dealt with in the shade, so that the great powers of the
European Union do not marginalize it even more.

President Morsi leads a tyrannical and dictatorial policy and claims to be
legitimately acting this way, although hardly more than 25% of the
Egyptians voted for him in the Egyptian presidential election marked by
nearly 50% abstention. Therefore, we support the Egyptian youth and
workers who rise up every day more numerous against this obscurantist,
reactionary regime, which serves the interests of the Egyptian

We condemn the arrests and torture which the opponents to Morsi’s regime
are submitted to. We demand the immediate and unconditional release of the
21 accused of Alexandria, as well as of all political prisoners held in
Egyptian gaols.

For the immediate release and for the immediate cessation of proceedings
against all the political prisoners in Egypt !
