(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - Corsica: The state of emergency tolerate racist attacks! (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 4 Jan 2016 10:50:40 +0200

Certainly, the "socialist" government uses the very selectively emergency: while the establishment of a state of emergency after the killing of 13 November had served as pretext to ban numerous events and to suppress activists during the COP 21, an openly racist manifestation threatening collective reprisals capita es a popular area of Ajaccio is not only tolerated but supported and filmed by all televisions. And hosts a pogrom project are then received by the Prefect! ---- We do not endorse the aggression of firefighters, whose missions are of public interest, but we can not accept this racist and Islamophobic outburst that culminated in the ransacking of a Muslim place of worship. The struggle for recognition of the rights of the Corsican people is legitimate, but the political and trade union organizations must lead this fight, as some have done, denounce and firmly combat xenophobic drifts which distort their fight.

These events show that we were right to denounce the state of emergency, which is nothing but a political weapon with variable geometry. The police and judicial repressive arsenal is strengthened for one goal: to silence the popular anger which thunders against the antisocial policy of a government at the service of the rich and powerful, against the daily operation of the workplace and against unemployment. This same government is now planning to include in the Constitution deprivation of nationality for binational, measuring directly drawn from the FN program, which only reinforces the stigma and prejudice against immigrant-es.

This is why we actively participate in the collective "Stop state of emergency" and that's why we are in the street during the first weekend in February calling for the immediate lifting of the state of emergency. Freedom and equality: the fight continues.
