(en) France, UCL - Islamophobic attacks: the first consequences of the separatism law (ca, de, it, fr, pt)[machine translation]

Date Sat, 15 May 2021 09:56:20 +0300

As the "separatism" law comes out of the Senate heavily amended by the right, a series of racist acts have taken place this week in various cities, sounding like an omen of the direct effects of this law. ---- The last few days have been marked by a wave of Islamophobic acts: threat of an attack in Mans, tags of the Islamic cultural center of Rennes, fire of the mosque of Nantes. The Rennes tags bear the mark of the far right, thus continuing a wave of fascist attacks after the attack on the Black Plume in Lyon and the intrusion of Action française into the regional council. from Occitanie. The events of Le Mans and Nantes are presented in the media as the work of isolated or even unbalanced people, illustrating once again the fact that the responsibility attributed to the perpetrators of attacks and the ease of labeling them as terrorists vary according to their profile. and that of their victims. However, it is impossible to ignore the political climate in which these actions take place.

This multiplication of attacks comes in a context marked by the separatism law, which has become a real nationalist catch-all: ban on the veil in public spaces for minors, as well as for those accompanying school trips, ban on foreign flags during marriages, amendment against "community lists" in elections ... But also abolition of family allowances for families of children "dropping out of school", embodying the link between racism and class struggle at work in this law.

The government, through the voice of Gérald Darmanin is trying to stand out by claiming that these proposals carried by the conservative right and the far right go against the "spirit" of this law. An inaudible position on the part of the one who criticized Marine Le Pen for being "soft" towards Islam only two months ago, and coming from a government which recently took up the term "Islamo "" leftism " on his own account. The "Unef amendment", adopted unanimously without the slightest voice "against»From the so-called left-wing parties and with the support of Marlène Schiappa is another reminder of the nature of this bill and of its desire to attack the self-defense tools of people who are victims of discrimination. The latter was formulated in reaction to the discovery of the political class of single sex, a tool for self-organization of the oppressed to talk about what they are going through. Beyond the UNEF, this amendment is a direct threat to many anti-racist, trade union and political organizations.

In the deleterious atmosphere created by this legitimation of the most rancid ideas, how can one be surprised at the increase in this violence ? On Monday April 12, the pediment of Science Po Paris was found covered with anti-Semitic inscriptions, reminding us that racism feeds on each other and that the current political climate affects all minorities. The need for an anti-racist and anti-fascist common front is all the more evident.
