(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #258 (Feb) - policy, Antiterrorism: Let's resist the police state! (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]
Fri, 4 Mar 2016 16:46:23 +0200
The state, a band of armed men, already Engels said. True, but the addition of new
appropriate laws by the Netherlands Government nevertheless creates a new and serious
situation. The state of emergency will be in the Constitution and the state of exception
in our daily lives. Resistance! ---- Holland struck three blows, and the curtain rises on
a legal scene deeply shocked: ---- By engraving the state of emergency in the
constitution, the government protects any accusation of abusive practice contested post
and opens the door to the indisputable legality of any new repressive law. The FN no
mistake, approving the process and trumpets that it will suffice him, once in power,
broaden the application of the state of emergency fields.
With the new law widening police powers (shooting conditions plays, night raids, searches
of luggage and vehicles, house arrest ...) the government creates a situation of permanent
exception. Even need to declare a state of emergency! Sarkozy had tried in vain to remove
the judge, theoretically independent of the Department of Justice. Holland, smarter,
simply circumvent the judge by giving the prefects and prosecutors, officials formally
orders of the government, the implementation of all the new measures.
Finally, the forfeiture of nationality, without any practical effectiveness, politically
crowns the building in a nod supported the FN voters. The stigmatization of people of
immigrant origin and have dual nationality and declared less French than others and
therefore suspected of terrorism. While the soldiers guarding the approaches to the
Valencia mosque neutralized their attacker without killing, we can see that the cops have
liquidated most of the alleged protagonists of terrorist acts, including half-crazy as
outside the police station Barbès in Paris on January 7. This does by no means justify the
attacks committed in the name Daech, but we know where we desertion led the flange on the
neck of the police: more burrs in neighborhoods ever more muscular and humiliating
controls for young and immigrant-es.
Trivialization and worsening of police violence
We can not accept such trivialization and aggravation. The cases uncovered in Pantin and
the twelfth district are only the visible part of the iceberg, as the foul murder in
Rennes, Babacar Gueye, shot five times in the back by police while he is automutilait
during an anxiety attack. The authorization to carry his weapon while off duty and use it
fears the explosion of individual reprisals and criminal behavior, particularly against
foreign populations. Under the influence of alcohol, for example ...
The new appropriate measures by the PS government must be connected with the different
laws that strengthen police powers since 1996. In particular the law on information
adopted in summer 2015, which allows to investigate and spy on phones and Internet ,
without judicial supervision, to any person suspected of intending to harm the interests
of the nation.
To laugh a little in this context quite terrifying, note to our readers, that probably
mosque fault monitoring on the Millevaches plateau, the helicopter flies over the
gendarmerie daily skimming of the farm Goutailloux known in Tarnac for the siting of a
group that is difficult to imagine that he can turn to jihad!
The COP21 has been a useful test to the government. Protected by fear of attacks and
draconian laws, Holland managed a show of force: several dozen environmentalists es
assigned to residence and searched-es, 400 police custody November 29 Republic Square
after a rally after all quiet ... And little protest!
The union activists have long been accustomed to employer-es and government repression. At
present, those of EDF, of La Poste, of Air France, the Conti or Goodyear can testify and
we take the opportunity to demand the dropping of charges against them, and call for a
unified initiative magnitude to unite in solidarity around the length of these examples.
But the new laws will allow to go far beyond. For example, to place under surveillance and
listen to the activists who are planning to organize a strike that could harm the
interests of the nation, even before it is triggered even before it is formally called!
If the Left Front elected validated state of emergency if the LDH was accepted in the
first eight days, many social and trade union organizations, immigrant and neighborhoods,
and intellectually the s-made appeals to the resistance against the government's plans.
And some did not hesitate to defy the bans on demonstrations.
Until the PS's draconian and discriminatory measures cause significant discomfort. This
ultrasécuritaire tipping naturally accompanies the pursuit of ultraliberal offensive. It
is urgent to quell social unrest mass which inevitably will eventually arise. Accompanying
the right turn of the government, it also aims to push out the latest PS activists
anchored to the left to allow an alliance at the center. A space opens to the
reconstitution of a reformist front on the ruins of the union of the left. But on ruins it
does not seem obvious to build ...
Es immediately invested in denouncing the state of emergency, the militants of Alternative
Libertaire are employees is to unite all these initiatives to lead to a great day of
action. A day of protest has had league Saturday 30 January. Stop the unit under emergency
rule  brings together dozens of parties, associations, unions and collective and it
federated with neighborhoods associations by mainstreaming the fight against discrimination.
In some cities (Orleans, Rennes, for example), it was possible to unite all the forces
while in Toulouse the social movement is divided on orders words (denial of permanent
state of emergency vs refusal of state of emergency short while, his denunciation of
racism vs invisibility ...). Beyond differences of appreciations and tactics, we campaign
for strong action and more unifying possible, each one can, we apparently call on the same
date with its own motivations. Regarding G, we denounce the state of emergency as a whole,
while not forgetting that a possible repeal will not solve the problems of police violence
and draconian measures against the social movement .. .
