(en) ait russia: Sebastian Lotzer. Diary of an epidemic and an uprising known in advance [machine translation]

Date Wed, 3 Jun 2020 08:24:32 +0300

"The epidemic will end, but not the measures, opportunities and consequences that it has caused and which we all are now facing. We are giving birth to a new world full of suffering" (Gianfranco Sanguinetti) ---- For 5 nights, the suburbs in France exploded in riot (in April, - aitrus.info). Despite the state of emergency and the ban on going out - or rather because of them. Police officers were ambushed, cars and city halls were tortured. 5 people have died since the declaration of the state of emergency in connection with police actions to ensure a ban on leaving the house. ---- There are wounded, many of them - seriously. The police, who for decades have been nothing more than an occupying army for poor neighborhoods, have taken another step forward in their orgy of violence. Extrajudicial killings seem to be only a matter of time. It could and should have exploded, and everyone knew it.

Already in the first days of the ban, skirmishes broke out repeatedly in the suburbs. Well-organized groups lit a fire, directly and unexpectedly attacked police entering the neighborhoods. After such attacks became more and more, an order was given not to try to maintain the ban any more with all possible forces. But the cops remain cops. They drive and chase people riding mopeds through the streets, because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time, because they didn't have the right skin color or they don't wear a helmet. Or simply because they themselves are filthy sadists.

Now we realized, but it's too late. Now in the Parisian metropolitan area alone there are about 1,000 police officers. They have helicopters and all conceivable technological gadgets. But it didn't help much. Against just a few hundred teenagers.

From Siberia to the African continent, from North to Latin America prison in one. Day after day. Even here, in Europe, in Italy, in France ... - night after night. Riots in Africa, on the Indian subcontinent, in Colombia, Argentina, Venezuela ...
Those who are experiencing a transformation into global pandemic fascism directly in their own skin, and not in the abstract constructions of prosperous left academics, have long begun the struggle. Of urgent need. And in this country (Sebastian Lotzer lives in Germany, approx. Enough 14), long texts appear about the refusal of the Fusion festival or about the cautious protest on May 1 (a curious tradition: for years the "new left" had nothing to do with this day, not counting the initiatives of the communist groups in the 1970s, but since the legendary night in 1987, various fragments of socially marginalized leftists began to march on that day, which had nothing to do with the traditional labor movement or social explosion on May 1, 1987).

The world will be different, or you can probably say that it will simply show its true face. For decades, texts and analyzes of "fascization" have been published here. And now, when all theories faded in the face of reality, not a single word, no real acts of resistance, except for night excursions. Or helpless symbolic acts that morally deserve all respect, but nothing more. Only obedience and fear. However, no, it's not about fear. Indeed, fear itself is nothing wrong. He belongs to us as much as love and hate. Here it is worth talking more about cowardly comfort and neurotic, narcissistic localization in a world disguised as altruism. Anyway. The gap with a large part of the "left" has long been ripened and overripe, and after the current submission, which is no coincidence reminiscent of 1977, he finally stands at the very top of the agenda for those who still have serious interest in the rebellious shift. That is, those who even make up a minority against the background of the dispersed movement of various pseudo-revolutionary groups and cliques, simply waiting for the opportunity to resume their daily affairs, as if nothing had happened.
