(en) France, Alternative Libertaire - Racism: why we will demonstrate on March 2 (fr) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 02 Mar 2013 11:43:57 +0200

It is not in the field of the fight against racism and colonialism that it takes a change with the coming to power of François Hollande: as evidenced by the chorus of praise that accompanies the French intervention in Mali, the French imperialist policy still has a bright future ahead of it and neocolonial prejudices die hard ... ---- And if, as the government claims, France is only motivated by the defense of oppressed peoples around the world, then it will still explain why, in line Sarkozyism we continue to deport foreign-es who aspire only to live and work in peace ... ---- How Manuel Valls shamefully treated hunger strikers Committee Undocumented North is to illustrate that the ministers of the interior, they are labeled UMP and PS, and are very similar - and there is fear that this is only the beginning!

At the same time, despite its major election promises, Holland has already started to decline on the voting rights of foreign and in local elections: equal rights is definitely not in the program. So do not let go deal with this chronic political cowardice on this claim more than 30 years!

A racist system that benefits employers

Today, in France, like it or not, racism is everywhere, especially against immigrant-es from the former colonial empire. This racist domination is expressed particularly in the workplace, where "immigrant labor" precarious by a more rigid regulations still continues to be exploited at will thank you and to serve as an adjustment variable to employers. Meanwhile, the French "colonization from" multiple discrimination experienced by the systemic nature can not be denied: this is a real machine to create the submission precarious work. Capitalists are obviously the primary beneficiaries.

Reinforced by a racist state violence

Treatment political and security of the population from immigration also plunges its roots in colonization. The policing of neighborhoods, the hunt for undocumented controls facies are daily many people whose only crime is not being white enough to look authentically French. And the impunity enjoyed by the perpetrators of racist crimes police is there to remind us that justice itself is also the location of a power still largely favorable to those who profit from racist domination.

The construction of representations of stigmatizing Roma populations, Muslim, immigrant or "young thugs suburban" is not trivial: in addition to split-worker pointing Artists scapegoats, it has practical consequences for those affected, whether insults, abuse, discrimination or police violence. This is why we must make the fight against racism a priority and push for the revival of a radical anti-racism.

We therefore demand: the regularization of all and all undocumented and freedom of movement. voting rights for foreigners of both sexes in all elections on the basis of residence unconditional seniority repeal all laws racist laws and stop controls facies; lifting impunity for police officers involved in crime and violence and the end of the police management exception inflicted on neighborhoods. withdrawal of French troops Mali and, more broadly, the end of the neocolonial policy conducted by France in its former colonies (the "Françafrique") or its overseas territories (Mayotte or Kanaky in particular), and the end of support Israel.

Let many in the street for walking colonial March 2nd at 14h at Metro Barbes alongside associations, trade unions and anti-racist policies and anti-colonialist. Employers and the ruling classes must understand that it is time to end racist domination and neocolonial policies.
