(en) grupo aurora: IFA statement - The global pandemic and its consequences are overwhelming the working class, the exploited and the oppressed people. (ca, de, it, pt) [machine translation]

It is the part of the world population most affected by the pandemic and, at the same time, the most committed to protecting the health of all. ---- The state and capitalist system is showing more clearly its weaknesses and contradictions. The acceleration of authoritarian processes taking place worldwide is aimed at defending the power, privileges and benefits of the ruling classes. ---- In various regions of the world we are witnessing the deterioration of the living and working conditions of hundreds of millions of people. The hoarding of natural resources is underway and essential goods, such as land and water, are increasingly concentrated in the hands of large landowners. Few large companies in different sectors such as e-commerce, technology, media, pharmaceuticals, retail, and the automotive industry prospered during the pandemic, earning hundreds of billions of dollars. In many countries the military budget has been increasing and the warlike tensions between states are being exacerbated in a growing concert of racist, fascist and nationalist propaganda.

Governments around the world are strengthening security agencies, both to further control and repress the population, and to expand the power of the police forces. Meanwhile, the segregated population is living the current situation in total deprivation, in Gaza as in the ghettos of big cities, or in Lesvos, in immigration detention camps and in prisons all over the world. Often governments use measures to prevent coronavirus infection to attack fighting movements.

In all corners of the world there are forms of resistance. These struggle movements in some cases are not only resisting the hardening of authoritarian policies, but are trying to create an alternative. We are with the peoples who rebel in the United States against racism and the police, or in Nigeria against the special security forces, in France against a new police state, against the violence of genocide and the repression against the Mapuche people in Chile. We stand with those who fight against dictatorship in Turkey and Belarus, or against authoritarian regimes in Thailand and Indonesia. Wherever the anarchist movement is present, it is an active part of these struggles. In various regions of the world, anarchists are committed daily, defending spaces of freedom,

Now more than ever it is necessary to strengthen the internationalist dimension of anarchism, to confront the ongoing authoritarian processes, to relaunch a revolutionary perspective in a world that capitalism and the state led to collapse.
