(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - Militant safety (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Tue, 4 Sep 2018 10:17:02 +0300

For some years we have been facing a hardening of the authoritarian state and repression. While austerity is increasing, as state managers have less and less leeway to carry out policies systematically to the detriment of the working classes, the repression appears for the ruling classes more and more as the unique answer to give to the movements of revolt. ---- Militant safety ---- Download here ---- Moreover, the development of far-right movements and ideas that we have been witnessing for years also goes in this direction. The security, the surveillance, the repression have become answers to everything, in a context where the terrorist attacks serve as a scarecrow to make accept the population of many restrictions of freedoms. Thus, the permanent state of emergency and the violent repression of the movement against the Labor Law are the last stages of this authoritarian hardening of the French state, announcing a democracy or post-democracy where public fundamental freedoms would no longer be guaranteed. only formally remaining in a regime of bourgeois democracy.

In this context, revolutionary organizations like Alternative Libertaire are prime targets for the state, which is obsessed with " anarchists ", the " ultra-left " or the " anarcho-autonomous movement ". The movement against the Labor Law in the spring of 2016 has shown that AL activists have been targets of police choice leading to trials and imprisonment or suspended sentences in several cities, not to mention the fact that a large part of the members of the organization was arrested on 29 November 2015 during the demonstration against the COP 21, prohibited under the state of emergency.

It is by being aware of these elements that this training book is written. It contains some basic guidelines, good practices that any activist should know, in order to reduce the exposure of our organization to surveillance and repression. This booklet is also a tool to start discussions on this topic and only needs to be updated and completed over time. It is not intended to be exhaustive and it is recommended to refer to more comprehensive guides on each subject for those who really want to dig, which you can find references at the end of the book. Nevertheless, these elements seem to us to be a minimal gateway to militant security. We will add that far from being obvious, as we write these lines,

The first part concerns computer security, to avoid electronic surveillance, and to self-incriminate by electronic traces. The second concerns individual and collective instructions that should be applied by revolutionaries in contexts of collective action such as demonstrations. Finally, the third is a series of advice in case of arrest, knowing that these are not a panacea, but just the way out of it as little as possible. To conclude this introduction, we will add that the collective grip of security allows trust and solidarity and thus adds cohesion within the groups that care, hence its importance.
