(en) Coordination des Groupes Anarchistes CGA - Anti-patriarchy, Fight against harassment and all patriarchal violence! (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 5 Dec 2017 08:50:09 +0200

The CGA applauds the movements of women, trans people and people involved in the recent free speech that has been put in place to denounce harassment, sexist attacks and the injunction to heteronormativity. These denunciations, in particular through social networks, and their translations by actions on the street, have thus allowed public recognition of the violence and their scale, have led to concrete measures, particularly with regard to the aggressors, and will certainly have important social implications. ---- A small step forward is the increasingly frequent use of the word "feminicide", which until now has been completely obscured and which makes it possible to clearly define the obvious reason for the murders of women committed by men "solely because they are women".
Gender-based violence against women, gays, lesbians, bisexuals, trans people and all those who do not recognize themselves in a masculine or feminine gender, derives from the hetero-patriarchal system of domination that characterizes society. This system induces a continuum of violence (moral and sexual harassment, assault, rape, etc.) and inequalities (economic, social, political) that reinforce each other.

The government, in spite of its communication for gender equality and against sexist aggression, perpetuates and strengthens this system. For example, by destroying the labor code and the labor courts, by facilitating lay-offs and wage cuts, it generalizes the precariousness and instability of employment. These attacks will primarily affect women, who hold most of the precarious jobs and whose wages are still much lower than men's. The abolition of the CHSCTs, and the modifications of the financing of the expertises will undoubtedly limit the investigations against the violence against them in the place of work. With these measures, women will be more subject to pressure and violence, whether in the workplace or in the conjugal and family sphere.

In addition, the dismantling of public services (health, education, justice, etc.), the closure of IVG centers, the general decrease of subsidies to local authorities and associations, as well as the lack of resources allocated to those fighting for rights women and against violence against them, will still come to hinder their access to health, social support or listening.

If we must denounce and fight against violence in the public space, remember also that the majority of violence is perpetrated in the family, conjugal and / or close family, contrary to popular belief and widely conveyed, which relegate this violence to certain outdoor locations or certain socio-cultural environments.

In the culture of rape, we oppose the culture of consent. The CGA supports the self-organization of the struggles of women and trans people, and fights against all forms of domination and exploitation
