(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL Paris Nord-Est - obituary, Salam ya Gisele ! (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]
Mon, 1 Oct 2018 09:45:02 +0300
Libertarian alternative and anticolonialist cause lose a comrade, a friend, an activist
whose strength, humor and revolt were communicative. ---- Gisèle Felhendler left. We had
met him in 2007, in Paris in the XIX th arrondissement. With her companion Alban, she
joined the Ligue communiste révolutionnaire, driven by the dynamics of the presidential
campaign. ---- Gisele was not doing politics with a calculator. What interested him then
was not the expectation of a big electoral evening, but the search for tools to federate
the struggles and strengthen a global project of emancipation of all dominations. The
project to create the New Anti-Capitalist Party (NPA) then raised a lot of hopes. Also she
participated in the construction of ZIP committees in the XIX th district and animation of
its international sector.
In 2008-2009, AL activists found her in the struggle for solidarity with the strikes of
undocumented workers. She supported the picket line of Fabio Lucci's employees, near the
Porte de Pantin. Operating in international solidarity with Palestine or with Tunisia
during the Arab revolutions (2011), she helped exilé.es who faced police harassment in the
squares of the XIX th . She was one of those who made the link between exiles, Tunisian
immigration organizations and French organizations.

It played an important role in promoting unitary groupings in the 19th century and
participated in the local anti-capitalist network that included activists from the NPA,
AL, Alternative, unitary communists and comrades of Solidaires. This collective impelled
struggles, relaya others and obtained for example the return of the free festival of
outdoor cinema Parc de la Villette, which attracts tens of thousands of people every
summer. She also participated in the development of political cafes that the network
impulsa throughout the district.
Between two struggles we liked to meet her in one of the bars she enjoyed for a drink or
to listen to Trio de Janeiro, Alban's jazz-bossa group.
It was during these years that she co-founded the association Sortieir du colonialisme ,
and became one of the mainstays of the anticolonial week and the anticolonial salon of
Paris, which are held every year. She also animated a show on behalf of Sortir du
colonialisme on Libertarian Radio, then on Frequency Paris Paris Plurielle.
Militant at AL Paris Nord-Est
In 2012, the crisis that tore apart the NPA made collective struggle and the debate on the
strategy of action and social transformation difficult. It was at this point that she
moved closer to Alternative Libertaire and joined the collective AL Paris Nord-Est, where
we benefited over the meetings from her knowledge, her desire to feed the libertarian
communist project and his joie de vivre.
She took part in the activities of the AL Paris Nord-Est group, the anti-racist commission
and the international commission, in particular by relaying calls, demonstrations,
meetings and other initiatives that seemed important to her, especially when they came
from Sorting out of colonialism or of the French Jewish Union for Peace .
Until 2018, Gisèle remained very active. She fought to the end. We lose a comrade, a
friend, an activist whose strength, humor and revolt were communicative.
All our thoughts go to Alban, his companion, and to Elodie, his daughter, to whom we share
His friends and comrades of Libertarian Alternative
A collective tribute will be paid to Gisèle Felhendler on October 20th, at 7 pm, at the
CICP, 21 ter rue Voltaire, Paris 11 e .
