(en) I.F.A.: Statement of the Fédération Anarchiste Francophone FA on wars, imperialism and internationalist resistance - June 2022 (ca, de, it, pt, tr)[machine translation]
Thu, 8 Sep 2022 08:28:39 +0300
Statement of adopted at the 80th Congress in Merlieux on 6 June 2022. Original:
Non aux guerres, non aux impérialismes - Activons la résistance internationaliste
---- No to wars, no to imperialism! Let's activate internationalist resistance!
----Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, the Sahel, Burma, to take only the most
recent examples... the list is long of these armed confrontations, led by the
states or instrumentalised by them. ---- NATO is presented to us as a tool for
the defence of Western populations, whereas it represents the armed arm of the
American state on a continent that is not its own, Europe, in order to extend its
global economic, military and cultural influence.
Its purpose is not the defence of individuals and peoples but the maintenance of
a capitalist and state order.
Just because the war has been made particularly visible to us in Ukraine does not
mean that it has disappeared in the world.
Putin and his tyrannical regime invaded Ukraine in February 2022, but the
conflict had already existed in the Donbass and Crimea since 2014. Among the
causes, the Soviet imperial (if not tsarist) nostalgia of the Russian leadership
remains strong. It is not so much afraid of the Ukrainians' rapprochement with
the European Union or NATO as of their democratic aspirations for freedom of
expression and assembly, which are rightly or wrongly incarnate by the West.
Wars are also an opportunity for arms dealers in France and elsewhere to make
profits and for the belligerents to use women's bodies as a battlefield (rape,
prostitution, etc.) to annihilate the population's resistance.
Wars justify for states the increase of military budgets to the detriment of
social budgets. They accelerate the increased militarisation of societies, which
are already subject to increasingly brutal repression. The weapons that are
produced always turn against us.
Taking advantage of the chaos and disorganisation of supply chains, states and
companies are making profits about this situation: they are speculating on the
markets by organising the (sometimes imaginary) scarcity of goods to increase
prices and profits. They take advantage of this to accelerate the energy
transition, not in favour of alternative energy from the nuclear power sector
and/or hydrocarbons from so-called "friendly" countries (Saudi Arabia, the United
Arab Emirates), not to mention the shale gas that the Americans will sell in mass.
Moreover, after having carried out intense destruction, the dominant political
and economic system always ends up organising recovery and reconstruction plans
that benefit the powerful.
We anarchists, always hostile to warmongering and militarisation, are concerned
about this escalation of war.
We support the populations:
- condemned to exile, by defending their unconditional welcome
- forced to stay at the risk of their dignity and their lives
- confronted with the difficult situation of choosing weapons;
We salute the need for individuals and peoples to face up to aggressors (active
resistance, passive resistance through, in particular, conscientious objection,
desertion, boycott of recruitment offices, etc.).
Anarchists do not forget that the way of resisting conditions the outcome of
conflicts and the future of societies to be rebuilt.

Afghanistán, Siria, Yemén, Sudán, el Sahel, Birmania, por traer a colación los
ejemplos más recientes, la lista de estos enfrentamientos armados, protagonizados
por los Estados o explotados por ellos, es alargada.
