(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #284 - Five years later: Clément Méric always present (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 4 Jun 2018 07:16:47 +0300

On June 5, 2013, Clément Méric, trade unionist at Solidaires student unions struggle and activist Action Anti-fascist Paris-Banlieue died under the blows of right-wing activists. Five years later, the fight against fascism remains an emergency. ---- From June 1st to 3rd, there was a weekend of struggles and tribute to Clement. It was made of discussions, exchanges, debates on the extreme right in France and in Europe. A demonstration was also organized to make the memory of Clement alive by continuing his struggles for social progress and against all oppression. A concert and a football tournament made it possible to combine the party with the fight. ---- And the fight must be up to the offensive. Reactionary attacks continue to be numerous: the breakdown of public services organized by successive governments demonstrates a desire to make social inequalities a pillar of society. The asylum-immigration law that has just been passed is part of the series of racist and xenophobic laws, being a salient point. Asylum applications will now be more complicated to formulate, expulsions will be facilitated.

Borders murder
In this context, it is not surprising that the police let far-right activists stage the blocking of the border between France and Italy in the abject goal of refusing asylum to people fleeing war persecution and misery.

Borders are murdering, the National Front welcomes the initiative and the government remains passive in the face of identity. Which act.

On the other hand, the government is very active in suppressing the social movement. It is with rigor and violence that he sends the police to expel the Zad of Notre-Dame-des-Landes and the occupied facs. Moreover, in this company, he is assured of the solicitude of the fachos. Indeed, students fighting against the ORE law had to thwart the attacks of right-wing activists in Montpellier, Strasbourg, Grenoble, Tolbiac or Malesherbes and Clignancourt (among others). At the same time, police violence is perpetuated and remains unpunished in poor neighborhoods.

The reactionary society model carried by the far right is therefore emulated, including among the rulers. It is based on violent social relations of domination and on the oppression of the greatest number. These modes of operation seem, unsurprisingly, to suit the dominant who are in power. Our task is to provide a political answer to this by fighting, within collectives, political and / or trade union organizations as well as by acts of concrete solidarity. It is crucial to develop an anti-fascist consciousness in order to bring about a project of social justice, solidarity, equality and the collective and individual growth of all. As Clement did.
