(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL Montpellier - Call to meet Tuesday, February 5 at 9am at TGI Nimes, to refuse the repression of the social movement and show our solidarity ! (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Sun, 10 Feb 2019 10:16:28 +0200

Since November 17, the movement of yellow vests has surprised, largely renews the forms of the social struggle and impresses with its determination. The power is not wrong: its only answer, in addition to an immense contempt for popular aspirations, is a police and judicial repression unpublished in recent decades. ---- The number of injured demonstrators in two and a half months of social unrest now exceeds 2500 ! Among them more than 250 seriously affected, with 18 protesters ravaged by LBD40 shots, 4 hands torn off by these grenades GLI-F4 containing a charge of TNT, a permanent loss of hearing ... And a death, in Marseille, more to a tear gas cannon shot in the head. A sinister opening for the great national debate, never seen in France since the beginning of the 1960s ...

On the legal side also, the state seems determined to calm the ardor of the rebels. By mid-January, there were no less than 5339 police guards that the protesters had to endure. Strong of the repressive arsenal developed during the last twenty years, after a passage through the state of emergency having left terrible scars in the French common law, the government hits hard! Going up to the massive use of preventive arrests, such as December 8, when 1082 people were arrested during, and often before, Act IV of the movement, sometimes with the sole motive for possession of protective equipment or saline . What seriously worry about the authoritarian drift of Western "democracies" on the eve of a bill anti-rioters to "soften" a little more the right to protest !

Locally, 11 people have been severely hit in the head with LBD40 fire since 17 November. Several participants in the Montpellier events are imprisoned in Villeneuve-les-Maguelone, often as a result of procedures run at full speed by public prosecutors completely overwhelmed by the impressive number of deferences. The case of Bessan confirms it: the "state will not tolerate the challenge ! Around this village Herault whose toll was a hot spot of the mobilization, it is 43 people who were arrested in the morning of January 8, with 35 police custody in the key! And it is now a dozen yellow vests that are incarcerated, distributed throughout the south of the country to avoid consultations, pending the results of a survey for destruction organized gang ...

On Saturday 12 January, for Act IX, a particularly repressed regional event was held in Nîmes. Dozens of protesters were wounded, 11 were detained the same day and 12 others were summoned and held in custody a few days later. After 48 hours in the cells of the central police station of Nimes, Julien, activist Alternative Libertaire, and four other protesters are brought before the criminal court. After receiving a postponement of the hearing, they are now summoned to "justice" on Tuesday, February 5th.

Come support them, in front of the Tribunal de Grande Instance of Nîmes, on February 5th at 9am !

Refuse the criminalization of social movements !
