(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]

Date 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.
