The terrorist attacks committed by killers Daech service on November 13 in Paris aroused legitimate emotion in people. They also provoked political reactions particularly unworthy or dangerous. Taking advantage of the emotion, the government has initiated an ominous march towards an authoritarian and belligerent regime in order intimating us to choose between terrorists and him! ---- Neither Islamic state ... ---- The populations of the Near and Middle East have numerous legitimate grounds to feed resentments against Western powers (Europe and USA). They are largely responsible for the state of underdevelopment of their country, confined to the role of suppliers of agricultural products and raw materials, particularly oil. Since the end of World War II, these powers have not stopped supporting tyrannical regimes in their pay and provide support to the State of Israel, which oppresses the Palestinian people and violated international law for almost half a century.

In more recent way, their interventions as illegitimate pretexts, including Iraq, are responsible for the political chaos and impoverishment that are hundreds of thousands of victims. After other Islamist movements (Al Qaeda, etc.), Daech feeds these resentments. Yet his actions are indefensible. His vision of the medieval world assimilated in the same block of "crusaders" or "infidel" Western populations and their governments, by shifting the first responsibility of policies pursued by the latter. The oppression and massacres suffered by the populations of occupied territories Daech are despicable. This tyranny is no better than the actions of the Western powers which it claims to oppose.

... Or National Front ...

The National Front and, more broadly, the far right looking to enjoy the reprobation aroused by the attacks in Paris to stir up their visceral hatred of those they call "immigrants" non populations from Europe, even established in France and French longstanding overwhelmingly. Their target also includes recently arrived refugees from the Middle East and sub-Saharan Africa. Suspected of evil intentions all, including being accomplices Daech, even though many of them fleeing the atrocities of the terrorists, "immigrants" are subject to a demagogic outbidding delusional: supervision, confinement , expulsion, or even put to death ... All the most irrational hate speech are good to pose as defenders of France attacked. In this sense, these far-right movements are the exact counterpart of Western Daech.

... Or Sarkhollande!

With the almost unanimous the 'political class' support, the government responded to these attacks by civil liberties restriction measures: state of emergency decree, an extension of this state for three months, a ban on demonstrations public highway (including that held in Paris as part of the COP 21), multiplication of arrests and police custody, wide opportunities for prefects to attack simple suspicious person can oppose government measures, etc. Not since the war in Algeria and the 2005 riots, civil liberties are restricted is found also in France. Intended to reassure the population, these measures are simply ineffective in the fight against the risks of highly probable future attacks. Moreover, they were mainly used against the activists ecologists. They also enable our leaders, past and present, to be harmless in the processes that led to the current situation. They seek to silence all criticism and disputes, yet more and more numerous, to their neoliberal policies (wage and fiscal austerity, deregulation of labor law, massive subsidies to employers) and their disastrous social effects (higher unemployment and precariousness, growing social inequalities in all areas). These will also eventually justify arbitrary police, racist drifts more and more frequent and violent attacks against mosques and businesses owned by Muslims or alleged such.

So what ?

We require that:

the restoration of civil liberties throughout the French territory and for all the people who live there;

legal action against all those who are guilty of words and acts intended to spread or worsen xenophobic hatred 'immigrants' and refugees;

the suspension of diplomatic and commercial relations between France and the Gulf monarchies, who financially support Daech; and with the State of Israel as long as he will not submit to the resolutions of the UN Security Council and that it will not recognize the right of existence of a Palestinian state;

the end of the collaboration of France and the EU with Turkey, which represses and "traps" the migrants on its territory on behalf of the EU, and can quietly continue his against-insurgency policy chasing and murdering civilians party members of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), the only organization in reducing DAECH Syria.

We propose:

to prevent mistrust and fear settled, the constitution of collectives in the workplace and life, to discuss and combat these problems;

the establishment of local and national coordination in the fight against xenophobia, racism, the FN and others;

support for progressive and revolutionary struggles of Syria, Iraq, Turkey and elsewhere
