(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL Novembre - "Fear will change sides": One year after AL's feminist campaign, continue the fight (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Wed, 15 Nov 2017 09:23:41 +0200

In 2016, Alternative libertaire launched a feminist campaign against violence against women. At a time when these are the heart of the news, we must fight more than ever against them and against patriarchy. ---- A year ago, Alternative Libertarian launched its campaign " Fear Will Change Camp " to fight against violence against women. Explicative and demanding, she started with an important file published in this journal in November 2016. ---- Special report of Libertarian Alternative of November 2016, as part of the AL campaign against violence against women . ---- We wanted to make this fight a resolutely political fight, and for that to explain the origin of this violence. Our case was therefore based on the fact that sexist and sexual violence, whether at home, at work or on the street, is a tool to dominate women and to ensure that they do not rebel against the unfair system in which we live: patriarchy.

Result of a thorough work, it served as a basis for the organization of many public meetings by Alternative Libertarian collectives in twenty cities. Around various topics, such as domestic violence, at work, or the representation of these in films, we took the opportunity to debate and discuss our feminisms. Going to meet the residents of our neighborhoods to discuss such a heavy subject is not easy, so we took the trouble to train ourselves to listen to the victims first and foremost.

In Nantes, 500 people demonstrated on 25 November.

The highlight of the campaign was November 25th. Several collectives promoted actions, gatherings or demonstrations in their city, and a procession very provided and dynamic was carried out during the traditional demonstration Paris. These moments of visibility in the public space are always very important. They allow us to see that we are not alone in the face of violence, because the collective strengthens us. They also allow us to shout loudly what we think of those who attack us and the society that allows it. Finally, they allow us to develop strategies to continue to lead the fight.

We draw a positive assessment of this campaign, which has helped to meet the two objectives we had set ourselves: to train and train our comrades on these issues, and to provide the organization with a clear speech. It should be noted that this also allowed a liberation of speech within Alternative Libertaire.

At a time when " social networks " are bursting with testimonials from women victims of gender-based and sexual violence, it is more important than ever to continue this fight ! Our energies will be used to build a November 25 fight, in the street, as wide as possible. For this, we must build demands so that the liberated speech gives birth to militant and victorious feminist movements. For fear to change sides, to go to the aggressors' camp, so that they will never dominate us again !

Videomontage (right click, "save link target as")
To organize a discussion: sexist violence in several works of fiction and in reality (38 minutes, 470 MB to download).
This videomontage is a tool to bring discussions in small or large groups. The aim is to bring out reflections on the place of violence against women in the collective imagination by promoting awareness: they are an integral part of our ordinary and our culture.

The extracts from this montage show various moral and physical violence. The directors approve or denounce them and present them in a more or less glaring, shocking, revolting way. Anyway, the " small " or " large " violence " mundane " that are made daily to women contribute to threaten and spread a perpetual mistrust and vulnerability because they are part of a system: patriarchy.

The struggle for its destruction is indispensable. The creation of a feminist power struggle against this system and those who defend it is necessary. Fear will change sides.
