(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL Paris Nord-Est - obituary, Salam ya Gisele ! (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date 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 our solidarity.

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 .
