(en) France, UCL AL #316 = Administrative detention center: against these prisons that do not say their name (ca, de, it, fr, pt)[machine translation]

Date Thu, 3 Jun 2021 10:16:33 +0300

In order to fight against the increase in administrative detention centers (CRA) by 2023, the Colère collective in the Loiret is fighting against the construction, in France, of new places of detention, real prisons that do not bear the mark. last name. Against the relentlessness of the State, neither in Orleans, nor elsewhere, no more CRA. ---- On March 27, in Orléans, the first protest march was held against the construction of an administrative detention center (CRA) scheduled for 2023. At the call of the collective against deportations and detention, Anger, 300 people gathered. are mobilized: we do not want an ARC, or imprisonment, or expulsions. Neither in Orléans, nor elsewhere. A few days earlier, a press conference was held at the Occupied Theater of Orléans, to remind people of this reality: in the CRAs, we lock up more and longer with a legal detention period doubled from 45 to 90 days in 2019. The conditions of detention remain unworthy, causing self-harm, suicides and attempted suicides.

The Colère collective formed at the end of 2019 brings together trade unions, associations and politicians from Loiret [1]in a desire to prevent the construction of new CRAs in France. These are prisons that do not speak their name and we want them to be abolished. A first forum from the militant, academic and cultural world was published on Médiapart in November 2019. A regional march was scheduled for April 4, 2020 in order to launch a mobilization called to be sustainable, until cancellation of the project. But the fight is not limited to that: other CRAs are under construction in Lyon, Bordeaux, Mesnil-Amelot... They would be added to the 24 existing CRAs, doubling the number of places between 2017 and 2025. Alarming testimony from the hardening of the government's anti-immigrant policy, Cimade has denounced human rights abuses in the CRAs for many years.

Locked up, whatever the cost
The 2020 confinement was the height of criminal absurdity in the CRAs: the prisoners were subjected to the epidemic even though they were not deportable. Hunger strikes and revolts marked the period, and continue to erupt. Further proof of the state's relentlessness on the bodies and lives of the people who live, work and study here. And who should be able to live here. If the epidemic and the health crisis forced us to postpone the April 4 demonstration for one year, the Colère collective organized and locally relayed the acts of the Solidarity March, on May 30, June 20, October 17. , December 18... This made it possible to continue to alert on the reality of the CRAs, and to keep the collective going over time.

Finally, the emergence of the fight against CRAs in Orléans was based on significant organizational work provided by the Collective to support young isolated foreigners in Loiret (Cojie). Their exemplary mobilization was built in the summer of 2019 in Orléans around the action and demands of young isolated foreigners, 150 of whom were threatened with eviction from their accommodation. From rallies to demonstrations, the determination of young people and their supporters remained intact throughout the summer of 2019: a roof, a school, papers.
