(en) Union Communiste Libertaire 49: Demonstrations for freedoms and against far-right ideas, Saturday June 12 (ca, de, it, fr, pt)[machine translation]

Date Sat, 12 Jun 2021 10:47:38 +0300


Saturday June 12, let's participate in the day of national and unitary mobilization for freedoms and against the extreme right. In Maine-et-Loire, meet in Angers at 2:30 p.m. Place du Ralliement, or in Cholet at 3 p.m. Place Travot. ---- __________________UNIT CALL FOR ANGERS: ---- For several months now, we have all observed that the political and social climate in France, as everywhere in Europe and in the world, is more and more permeated by the extreme right and its ideas. ---- Faced with this climate of hatred, racist and attacking individual and collective freedoms, we call for a strong, united and unifying reaction, to reaffirm our common fight against the far right, its ideas, and all those who participate in its spread.

From Bolsonaro to Trump via Orban and Salvini, we are witnessing a racist and reactionary offensive that is particularly worrying for the future of the planet. In France, this racist offensive has as a corollary the proliferation of security, liberticidal and anti-social policies.

This climate owes nothing to chance. The government, and its four lookouts Darmanin, Vidal, Blanquer and Schiappa, have been in charge of supplying it for months. From the global security law to the law on separatism through the hunt for Islamo-leftism and the abolition of the Observatory of secularism, this five-year term accumulates pledges for the far right, by taking its elements language but also some of its proposals.

When you blow on glowing embers and spend your time stirring up hatred, it has concrete consequences. It can even lead to the worst, as we saw recently with the attack on the Bayonne mosque.

After the invasion of the Regional Council of Occitanie by Action Française, the sacking of a bookstore and the attack on the lesbian march in Lyon by identitarians, the controversies over the alleged Islamo-leftism and the pretext of groups of word between people discriminated against to attack UNEF or to attack Audrey Pulvar, an additional milestone has just been crossed.

In less than 72 hours, a neo-Nazi wanting to carry out an attack against the mosque of Le Mans was arrested, the mosque of Nantes was set on fire, and the Islamic cultural center of Rennes was covered with Islamophobic tags.

In Angers, for several years, ultra-right groups have been organizing themselves, attacking symbols of freedom, attacking fellow citizens, for racist and homophobic reasons. We demand strong and clear action on the part of the public authorities (prefect and mayor) to put an end to these acts.

An appeal from factious soldiers, based on the witch hunt launched by members of the government, is broadcast by the far-right weekly Valeurs Actuelles and is supported by Marine Le Pen without any reaction from Emmanuel Macron or the government. does not file a complaint with justice.

We cannot accept that those who suffer hatred, discrimination, and injustice are today accused of racism and thrown into the past by the far right.

We no longer accept that the fight against terrorist acts, which we strongly condemn, are accompanied by shameful amalgamations

We cannot accept that we political activists, trade unions, associations are singled out while every day this government rolls out a red carpet on the far right with its reactionary and liberticidal laws.

We can no longer accept the direct threats that are now being made to us.

We, political activists, associations, trade unionists and personalities from civil society are calling for a major demonstration on June 12, 2021 at 2:30 p.m. Place du Ralliement, to say no to the far right, to its ideas which are spreading to the government. and defend our individual and collective freedoms. We address ourselves to associations, unions, collectives, parties who share the basis of this call so that they come together in order to build the conditions.

Signatory organizations:
Trade unions: CGT, FSU, SOLIDAIRES, UNEF and UNL.
Political organizations: LFI, NPA, UCL, PCF 49, EELV, Génération.s 49
Associations: LDH, AFPS

UCL EXPRESSION: SOCIAL STRUGGLES AGAINST THE EXTREME RIGHT AND ITS IDEAS

The racist, nationalist and reactionary ideas of the far right are spreading and becoming commonplace. Soldiers exhibit in the press their putschist temptations, the police demonstrate to repress with impunity with the support of almost the entire political class. To be effective, we must organize the response in the social field.

It smells rancid

The National Rally is progressing in people's minds to the point of being at the gates of power in several regions and the victory of Marine Le Pen in 2022 is a hypothesis that has become serious. On a daily basis, Macron and his government are increasing authoritarian, racist and liberticidal declarations and measures: prohibitions on demonstrations, security laws, criminalization of migrants, Islamophobia, negrophobia, anti-Semitism, rromophobia, etc.

The democratic veneer is increasingly effaced. The government and its anti-social policy offer an avenue for fascist forces. Logically, we see a multiplication of attacks against rallies and activists of the social movement by thugs of the extreme right. The attack on the La Plume Noire bookstore at UCL Lyon is one of the sad and numerous examples.

Let's build unity in the social field

Seduced by the falsely anti-system discourse, more and more people are tempted to resort to the fascist vote, because they are tired of past betrayals and failures. But, during the fight against the pension reform, the RN was absent as in all struggles for social rights.

With the electoral period, the parties are playing up the security and authoritarian bidding. The Republican front dikes against fascism no longer hold. While it is important to come together, moral anti-fascism in the field of values, or when it only serves electoral interests, has shown its limits. The only victory against fascism will be in the social field, because it is when the employees, the precarious, the victims of racism, women and LGBTI people, etc. fight and win as class solidarity advances, reactionary ideas regress.

With deeds

For this, we call for the strengthening of associations, collectives and unions of the social movement: let's build our anti-fascist response from the base, union, radical, in the street, in our places of work, life and study so that this struggle can take place. continues and intensifies once the electoral deadlines have passed.

From layoff plans to the expulsions of undocumented people, through the struggles against security laws and acts of gender-based and racist violence, let us build concrete responses in unity where solidarity between the oppressed leaves no mark on the ground. space for hate speech and division. We must also organize for popular self-defense against fascist aggression.

These are essential milestones to regain confidence in the collective. From these counter-powers, let us popularize a project of society as an alternative to capitalism, a libertarian, united and egalitarian project. A libertarian communist project.
