(en) France, Union Communiste Libertaire UCL Montreuil - Social, Truth and justice for Ibrahima, dead in Villiers-le-Bel (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Wed, 16 Oct 2019 09:38:48 +0300

The city where Mouhsin and Laramy were killed twelve years ago, in an accident involving the police, is again in mourning, for similar reasons. This time Ibrahima Bah, 22, was killed. A thousand people marched for truth and justice, and the family requests access to surveillance videos. ---- Sunday, October 6, in Villiers-le-Bel (Val-d'Oise), Ibrahima Bah, 22, died after losing control of his bike. The police would have barred the road, causing the accident. But, as too often, the version of the witnesses is not the same as that of the police. ---- The next day at 17 hours, a march and a rally were organized by his relatives. Part of the district of La Cerisaie, where the tragedy took place, more than a thousand people, mostly residents of the neighborhood, marched silently.

The atmosphere was heavy with mourning. The walk ended at a junction not far from there. This same crossroads where, in 2007, Mouhsin Sehhouli and Laramy Samoura were killed in similar circumstances, provoking three days of riots for truth and justice. This crossroads has become symbolic for the inhabitants of Villiers-le-Bel, Sarcelles and Garges-lès-Gonesse.

Bikers, smoke and speaking
After a heartbreaking silence, about fifty motorcycles arrived in procession, regrouped and roared the engines in chorus for several minutes, as if to signal their rage and their sadness to the whole neighborhood.

A red hand torch was cracked in the middle of the procession and suddenly the noise came to an end. The bikers then completely encircled the crossroads, completing blocking traffic to secure the rally.

In Villiers-le-Bel, October 7, 2019, for Ibrahima.

Several interventions were then chained to the microphone.

Diané Bah, Ibrahima's big brother, recalled that his brother is not the first victim of police violence in the poor neighborhood, and it is time for it to stop.

Assa Traore, from the Adama Committee, announced that the Bah family will need long-term support for one, two, or ten years, as the struggles for truth and justice are always frighteningly long and difficult.

The family will file a complaint, and request access to surveillance videos. It's a long fight that starts.

We must therefore be ready to react as soon as the relatives need concrete solidarity.

Nathan (UCL Montreuil), October 10th
