(en) Canada, ucl-saguenay, Collectif Emma Goldman - Chicoutimi: But what parking? Here is the beach! (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Mon, 23 Sep 2019 08:55:41 +0300

Last Saturday (September 14th), dozens of residents from downtown Chicoutimi gathered at the lot at the corner of Tessier and Jacques-Cartier streets to discuss, play and share a meal. This piece of land, which the city council wants to turn into parking (again!) Was once again occupied by people from the neighborhood. Instead of killing this place by cementing it, we propose to set up a meeting place that allows us to create a social bond in our living environment. But obviously, Simon-Olivier and his gang like to better concreting everything to please "the citizens of Saguenay who love cars so much". No more parking to bring people who for some people think that no one lives downtown and it is only a devitalized area. More' access to cars that will result in an even greater need for parking to allow more cars that will need more parking, etc. A beautiful wheel that turns ... and especially that pollutes. A dinosaur mentality at a time when we have to work hard to turn the tide on the fight against climate change. To fight against climate change by wanting to continue living in a verdi capitalist system, is to swipe in the water. But even that (greening capitalism) is too intense for the politicians of Saguenay[1]. They like to go all-in better! As long as you head for the precipice, it is better to go by car!

To return to the pot, this last chapter has once again demonstrated the relevance of such an event. The discussions we have with the people who pass on the ground or that we meet in the street during the action are always constructive. Several people encouraged us while others came to bring furniture for the park. And one thing is sure is that creating a meeting place for and by the people of the neighborhood makes all the difference of a sanitized and hyper-repressed park or place set up by a handful of ties that have fun doing "urbanism". We create our own places, anti-authoritarian places where everyone is welcome.

And now, on another note ...

Sébastien Gagnon (Storm Alliance) continues in mediocrity!

When we packed up our belongings, we had the great privilege of being visited for the second time this day by a Saguenay police patrol car. The police came to inform us that he and she had received a call from a citizen and that the latter would have made his complaint after being insulted and having been denied access to the parking. Except that at no time we took or were caught by a motorist. Even worse, of the 40 new parking lots, there have never been more than 4 cars. On the permanent parking side, there were at most fifteen cars and the multi-storey parking remained almost empty. The police officers, after having noticed that he

The patrol car was recently gone, the author of the unfounded complaint could not help but show his face and snatch a poster of the event in passing.Visibly, Sébastien Gagnon, the former director from Storm Alliance and former member of La Meute, was bored since the end of the fishing season. Whoever describes himself as an anti-antifa, in short a fascist, unable to indulge his passion for earthworms has returned to one of his favorite pastimes, provocation and false reports to the police ( the same process was used last year at a camp in downtown) .

At least, while Sébastien Gagnon is trying to disrupt events that denounce politicians and their rich friends, he does not attack people from religious minorities. It's better than nothing.

Neither the city council, nor the promoters, nor the extreme right will overcome a city center solidarity.

[1]Meanwhile, in Montreal, the mayor wants to create the largest urban park in North America. In Europe, some cities have opted for free public transport or the ban on cars in city centers. Like what does not take the biggest revolutionary to put in place "green measures". The council of Ville de Saguenay, always a few decades back!

soon ....
