(en) France, UCL Toulous - Call for the demonstration of June 12: social struggles against the far right and its ideas (ca, de, it, fr, pt)[machine translation]

The Union Communiste Libertaire Toulouse and surroundings calls to join the demonstration of June 12, 2 p.m. Place Arnaud Bernard on the bases of an anti-fascism of class, social and popular struggle. ---- For us, while it is important to be part of a united approach to the fight against the extreme right, the latter should not be conditioned solely on electoral or moral issues. ---- The anti-fascist struggle must therefore be accompanied by social, trade union, popular and radical struggles. This is why we call for this initiative to continue and to join those that will emerge in the future to build a lasting unitary framework against the far 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 erased. The government and its anti-social policy offer an avenue for fascist forces. Logically, we see a multiplication of attacks on rallies and activists of the social movement by far-right thugs. 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's 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.
