Saturday, February 16, 2000 we were more militants, association members, shoppers or simply Lyon people to demonstrate in Lyon against fascist violence, call the Collective Vigilance against the extreme right. In recent years, increasing social misery generated by the capitalist system benefits the development of the various movements of the extreme right. In Lyon, it is crystallizing around the small group "identity", which in their local area of ââVieux Lyon since 2011. This presence in the city center has created a climate of fear among the inhabitants and shopping district, who suffer repeated attacks. Multiple beatings by their members or supporters against "foreigners", "leftist" or "queers" can not be counted.

The Collective Vigilance against the extreme right, bringing together parties, associations and organizations, including the CGA Lyon, has once again proved that the street does not belong to the fascists. The procession, dynamic and with a majority of libertarians, crossed the city center and Old Lyon crossing on the road a few provocateurs and the identity thirty (police protection) camped in front of their local, who had the leisure and scrolling a few thousand anti-fascists ...

Until the racist, sexist and hateful prejudices disappear permanently, the immediate demand of the event was the closure of local identity "the Traboul." In 2011 we managed to force mobilizations to force the city to close a local neo-Nazi in the Gerland. Although the loss of these premises does not solve everything, it is already possible to limit the spread of fascist ideas, but more importantly, it reduces violent attacks that usually take place nearby.

Anarchists are very present in the anti-fascist struggle. In particular, the CGA, including militants of many cities were present. In Lyon, the CGA has chosen to participate in Collective Vigilance which includes very different organizations and parties. The choice of the unit seems unavoidable in the immediate face of the fascist threat in Lyon, nicknamed "the laboratory of the extreme right." But our anti-fascism is not fascism front of the reformist left. We know that the fascist movements are allies of capitalist exploitation. They serve as an extended arm to the state and the bourgeoisie to divide us and prevent anti-capitalist emancipatory revolt. An effective fight against fascism can only be anti-capitalist and anti-sexist!

This event is just one step, we will continue the fight against fascism, and those against all forms of domination which fascism and capitalism feed. The struggle continues!
