(en) France, Union Communiste Libertaire UCL - Bounti massacre: the French army must leave Mali (ca, de, it, fr, pt)[machine translation]

Date Wed, 20 Jan 2021 10:36:14 +0200

Will it take five weeks, five months or five years to know the truth about the Bounti village massacre ? One thing is certain: the attack was perpetrated either by the Malian army or by the French army which is supervising it de facto. The latter is therefore directly responsible, or at least complicit in this massacre of civilians. Further proof of the impasse that this " war on terrorism " constitutes on an imperialist basis. ---- Recall of facts ---- On Sunday January 3 between 2:30 p.m. and 3 p.m., the outskirts of the village of Bounty, in the Mopti region, were hit three times, killing 19 people gathered for a wedding. The testimonies evoke an attack by a combat helicopter. ---- On January 6, the French army conceded a bombardment the same day, at the same time, 1 kilometer from Bounti, but by a fighter plane, on a suspected jihadist group.

On January 7, the Malian Ministry of Defense confined itself to confirming the French version.

The Fulani community association Jeunesse Tabital Pulaaku supports the villagers' version. The Fulani ethnic group is commonly amalgamated with jihadists, and the victim of discrimination and abuses by the Malian Armed Forces and hostile paramilitary militias. With FIDH [1], Jeunesse Tabital Pulaaku is calling for the opening of an independent international investigation.

Barkahne: a French imperialist operation
For seven years, Operation Barkhane has been pleased to eliminate dozens of jihadists every month, in particular by aerial bombardments, without any specific military objective, without any avowable political objective. A " never-ending war " at the risk of bloody " burrs " of the type of that of Bounti.

For the Libertarian Communist Union, this is further proof that the French State must put an end to its imperialist intervention in the Sahel, and let the peoples of the sub-region find by themselves the political solution to this conflict.
