(en) France, Union Communiste Libertaire UCL AL #312 - Anti-fascism, Aggression: In Lyon the fafs strike again (ca, de, it, fr, pt)[machine translation]

Date Thu, 21 Jan 2021 10:11:43 +0200

Two associative volunteers were attacked on December 12 when they closed the associative and libertarian bookstore and library La Plume Noire. This umpteenth episode of violence on the part of the far right reminds us that they are rife as soon as we let our guard down. ---- Saturday, December 12 in the evening, two volunteers from the PESE association (For social equality and ecology) closed the curtain of the libertarian bookstore and library La Plume Noire after a day of solidarity collection of clothes and toys when they were approached, taken to task and then beaten by a dozen far-right thugs. ---- The modus operandi indicates that the operation has been prepared and that the volunteers have fallen into a real trap. The Union Syndicale Solidaires (whose two volunteers were also activists) as well as the UCL which self-manages the bookstore immediately called for a popular rally on the following Sunday, December 20 on the Esplanade de la Croix-Rousse.

Our comrades were ambushed on December 12 at La Plume Noire, in Lyon.
Although not claimed, this cowardly aggression bears the signature of the far right. Very active in the city of Lyon for ten years, it has multiplied acts of violence since this summer: fire in mosques, ransacking of the restaurant "Le Tonton Burger", threat against PCF premises, etc.

This new aggression is also revealing of the impunity in which the radical right activists act in the city of Gones: the Traboule and the Agogé, the room and the boxing hall of Generation Identity are used, in the sight of all and all, from place of organization to a movement which tries to impose by violence and terror against minorities and the social movement its political project.

A renewal of unitary work is needed
On December 18 in Chalon-sur-Saône, on the sidelines of Act IV of undocumented migrants, four PCF and Cimade activists were also attacked by young fascists. It is time that we everywhere reaffirm our absolute rejection of extreme right-wing violence.

This is not exercised blindly, it targets minorities, voluntary associations of the social movement who work for a better world without discrimination, far from their vision of the world made of violence towards "others". Faced with these aggressions it is more urgent than ever, in Lyon and everywhere else, that the libertarian, anti-fascist, anti-capitalist organizations and the unions of struggle join forces to block the poison of the extreme right.

The field work of the anti-fascist groups, of VISA (Vigilance and anti-fascist initiatives) at the trade union level, of the Horde at the level of monitoring and information, and many others, is more necessary than ever and even essential, but this is still insufficient.

Today, locally and nationally, we need to relearn how to work together. UCL will support and invest in all unitary initiatives aimed at combating the extreme right in the political, trade union and social fields.
