(en) France, UCL leaflet: Racist, authoritarian and violent: the RN is the plague and cholera (ca, de, fr, it, pt, tr)[machine translation]

Date Sun, 7 Jul 2024 08:09:12 +0300

The dissolution of the Assembly and the announcement of elections on June 30 and July 7 bring the threat of the RN to power. The far right in charge is an authoritarian, racist, sexist, liberal program that reinforces inequalities by continuing the destruction of public services. ----- The extreme right takes power through the ballot box but does not give it back ---- The extreme right parties claim to be democratically elected to justify the application of their program. In reality, they seek first to guarantee their own power. In the USA and Brazil, fascist groups attempted a coup d'état after their defeat in the elections. Like Putin, far-right heads of state rig elections to stay in power. In Hungary, Orban established his power through control of the media and universities. To keep power, the RN wants to modify the constitution and put the public media under the orders of Bolloré. Voting for the RN means abandoning all hope of democracy.

The RN in power in the Fifth Republic, a catastrophe for freedoms
The RN in power could rely on a Fifth Republic that is authoritarian by nature which will facilitate the application of its racist and anti-social policies. He would crush opposition by reducing political freedoms, freedom of the press or association, the right to strike, as he did in the cities he conquered. The RN in power is a major risk for the struggle unions which it has always tried to replace with corporatist and nationalist "unions". Control of the justice system or prefectures could allow it to lock in its control over the state apparatus. At the repressive level, the RN in power is the guarantee of an explosion of police violence.

The RN in power, unbridling fascist street violence
Around the RN are numerous small fascist groups, which carry out the work of harassment against the progressive forces for it. They are today present throughout the territory, increasing violence and attacks. On the evening of the European elections and in the days that followed, fascist attacks increased, sometimes even under the passive gaze of "the forces of a so-called republican order". If the RN is in power, street groups will attack with impunity.

So faced with the extreme right, what to do?
If we call without illusions or scruples to vote for the NFP lists to prevent the RN from coming to power, we know that the extreme right will only retreat in the face of a strong, offensive and united social movement.

Let's join all the unitary street mobilizations
Let us strengthen grassroots unity in our unions, associations and collectives
Let us reaffirm our unwavering solidarity everywhere with all those targeted by far-right policies.
Let's come together in existing anti-fascist collectives and expand them
Let's join UCL to work to take back power for ourselves
Everywhere and right now, the urgency is to organize to discuss and act in your workplace, in your neighborhood and in the street. Let's build the democratic spaces necessary for our class!

Popular front against the reactionaries, social revolution against capital!
Libertarian Communist Union, June 20, 2024
