(en) France, UCL - UCL press release: The call of the generals or fascism in ambush (ca, de, it, fr, pt)[machine translation]

Date Thu, 29 Apr 2021 09:19:42 +0300


This Wednesday, April 21, about twenty retired generals, some struck off the army, made public on the site of the far-right rag Current values a call for the "return of honor" which is nothing to do with it. other than the threat of a fascist putsch. Faced with this maneuver by the extreme right, there is no better bulwark for UCL than to defend freedoms and lead the class struggle. ---- This Wednesday, April 21, about twenty retired generals, some struck off the army, made public on the site of the far-right rag Current values a call for the "return of honor" which is nothing to do with it. other than the threat of a fascist putsch.
Macron, the government and parliamentarians are questioned because "the hour is serious" : the "racialist / indigenist / decolonial" anti-racists would work to divide France and debunk statues ; the "suburban hordes" would be conquered by Islamism ; the black blocks "hooded" would force the poor police to use violence ...
These racist and fascist fantasies contained in the call of the generals have today spilled over from the ranks of the extreme right and are relayed by ministers of the current government.

Heavy threat, the appeal ends with the evocation of a civil war and "the intervention[of the military]of active in a perilous mission of protection of our civilizational values and of safeguard of our compatriots on the national territory. » , Even announcing deaths by the thousands.

A maneuver from the far right
Also signed by high-ranking officers and soldiers, the appeal is now in the form of a petition on "Place d'Armes, the committed site of the military community".

It is especially officially supported by the National Rally of Marine Le Pen which, from April 23, invited the factious generals to join it. This will not be complicated, some having already been candidates for the RN , others framing near or within extreme right-wing groups.

Let us recall that April 21, the date chosen to publish this appeal, is that of the Putsch of Algiers of 1961 led by generals who wanted to keep what they called "French Algeria" sixty years ago. say a colonialist and racist regime.

Let us recall again that this appeal was published after a One of Current Values calling for "insurrection" by the voice of Philippe de Villiers.

Finally, remember that a few weeks ago, Mediapart unveiled the existence of neo-Nazi networks organized within the army .

Our rampart: defending freedoms and leading the class struggle
Macron, like his government, took the time to react to this call.

While its most prominent ministers are quick to denounce an alleged " Islamo-leftism", to hit the UNEF or SUD education, it was not until the evening of the 25th for an intervention by the Minister of the Armed Forces. Too busy carrying out the policy of the far right on its own account with its " separatism" and "global security " laws, does Macronism only realize that it is rolling out the red carpet for it ?

We know that these generals can count on violent auxiliaries among the groups of the radical extreme right, and who do not hesitate to act: we saw it in Lyon with the attack of the Black Plume as in the Regional Council of 'Occitanie with a violent intrusion by a French Action commando team.

For the Libertarian Communist Union, the hour is serious, yes. This is what convinces us of the need to act urgently in defense of freedoms . It is vital that a large-scale and unitary initiative associating all the progressive, anti-fascist and anti-racist forces be taken to react to all these attacks as well as to the far-right threat which is becoming clearer day by day.

It is just as vital that the social movement regain control: massive strikes and the emphasis on the class struggle have always reduced the influence of the far right.

Rather than letting "security" and racist fantasies be at the heart of the public debate, it is urgent to put back the question of the public health system sacked by capitalist policies, to put back the fight against layoffs, that for the right to housing, for the defense of health insurance and unemployment insurance. To remind loud and clear that we will not pay for the crisis that the capitalists promise us. The day of May Day must be a step for that .
