(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - Petition, BDS is growing, the state represses (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 30 Jan 2016 15:24:08 +0200

Petition, While the French government seeks to criminalize the campaign Boycott-Divestment-Sanctions against Israeli colonialism, a petition was launched to strengthen the movement. Solidarity with the Palestinian people in their struggle! ---- Manuel Valls announced January 18, 2015 at a meeting of the Friends of the Representative Council of Jewish Institutions in France (CRIF) he wanted the French state increases the pressure and repression against the campaign Boycott Divestment Sanctions (BDS), initiated in 2005, which is a member of Alternative Libertaire. This is the face of recent media and attempted criminalization of a vast movement of solidarity, become awkward for the French state, historic ally of the state of Israel. ---- During summer 2014, the Israeli army attacked Gaza and the Palestinian territories during strikes and advanced ground murderers. Many demonstrations of solidarity with the Palestinian people in struggle organized in France had been banned.

While the BDS campaign is gaining nowadays more and more importance and benefits of energy militant.es motivé.es by his success in the country as elsewhere in the world, the will power to criminalize actions Boycott and information strengthens: refuse then and still are strengthening wherever possible the campaign until the end of the apartheid regime!

Saturday, January 27, BDS action to LIDL France 34: fruits and products of Israeli Mehadrin and Jaffa brands implanted illegally in Israeli settlements sold there.

Many associations resent the decision of the Court of Cassation of October 20, 2015, which declared illegal the call to boycott Israeli products. Here a new appeal signed by several activists, intellectuals and politicians in defense of the BDS campaign launched by Palestinians July 4, 2005.

We shall roll us not the decision of the Court of Cassation of October 20, 2015!

On 20 October 2015, in two judgments, the Supreme Court declared illegal the call to boycott Israeli products and upheld the conviction of several heavy movement activists Boycott Divestment Sanctions (BDS). She used to this, a section of the press law that evokes the offense of "incitement to discrimination, hatred or violence against a person or group of persons because of their origin or their membership an ethnic group, nation, race, or religion. "

This decision is more than astonishing, it is scandalous. This law is supposed to protect a person or group of persons discriminated against because of their origin or their membership or non membership of an ethnic group, nation, race or religion. It does not provide any way to protect the policy of a state against a citizen criticism when that criticism takes the form of a boycott of products. Many times, organizations worldwide have called for a boycott of Burma or Russia, China or Mexico without ever evoked such a clause.

Despite the insistence of the Ministry of Justice, most foreclosures French courts refused in recent years to consider that the call to boycott Israeli products was part of a criminal offense.

With the decision of the Court of Cassation, France became the only democratic country in the world where such a ban was taken. For a country that, for a year, has continued to claim his commitment to freedom of expression is a situation all the more paradoxical, it is likely that the European Court of Human Rights Human unwelcome return to this judgment. Even the Supreme Court has to answer for its decisions and comply with universal principles that are, inter alia, the right of expression.

The BDS movement has created a resignation context of the international community unable to put an end to colonization or protect Palestinians daily abuses inflicted by Israeli army and settlers.

This movement for boycott increasingly successful in the world, as the only non-violent means of pressuring Israel. It allows all those and all those who wish to peacefully demonstrate their solidarity and protest thereby against the special treatment enjoyed by this country from the international community despite its constant violations of international law. That is why we call to support and strengthen the BDS movement and boycott Israeli products.

First signatories of the call:

Ahmed Abbes, Research Director at the CNRS, Paris; Sihame Assbague, community activist; Etienne Balibar, Emeritus Professor, University of Paris-Ouest Nanterre; Said Bouamama, sociologist; Brauman, doctor, essayist; Sonia Dayan-Herzbrun, Emeritus Professor at the University Paris Diderot-Paris 7; Delphy, sociologist, co-founder of Feminist News Questions; Alain Gresh, journalist; Nacira Guénif, sociologist, University Paris 8; Christian Salmon, writer; Azzedine Taïbi, mayor of Stains; Marie-Christine Vergiat, MEP.

To go further, do not hesitate to consult the file Free Palestine! "After the first Intifada (1988-1993) and the second Intifada (2000-2005), is a third Palestinian uprising that has shaken the Israeli colonialist yoke . Without freedom, without ending the occupation without the return of réfugié.es in their homes, without the abolition of apartheid plaguing the Mediterranean to the Jordan, we must not hope for lasting peace.
