(en) Communiqué of the group of the Paris region of the Coordination of the Anarchist Groups following the aggression of feminist militants by members of the service of order (SO) of the CGT on September 12, 2017 (ca, fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

The CGA-RP unambiguously denounced the collective aggression carried out by members of the CGT's security service against five feminist activists during the union demonstration on September 12 in Paris. Three comrades were injured, including one belonging to the CGA and the Antipatriarcal Front . Their only wrong: to have reacted to a sexist insult by a member of the SO of the CGT (1). Without an immediate feminist solidarity, the balance could have been much heavier. ---- These acts of violence are unacceptable and have no place in the trade union movement or elsewhere. Nothing can justify them. They recall that the militant spaces are not protected against sexist attacks; daily and massive violence to maintain the patriarchal order.

The masculine and anti-feminist solidarity of a part of the SO questions the organization and the methods used by it. We call for solidarity with the women concerned, including by calling on the militants and members of the CGT to disassociate themselves from these practices and act accordingly.

Against patriarchy: feminist self-defense

The feminist struggle is a constant struggle and must take place both within our militant frameworks and outside. Today as yesterday, we will continue to defend feminist self-defense as the first bulwark against male violence. No patriarchal, verbal or physical violence will undermine our determination to build a new society based on equality and solidarity, rid of patriarchy and all forms of domination.
Paris, 15 September 2017

(1) The exact words were: "I will eat you pussy"
