Statement from the CNT on the (re)introduction of the curfew in France
We are all of the rabble
In the face of the violence of a State which against poverty sends us only a pile of cops;
In the face of a State which for three decades has promised us a Marshall plan for the zones of poverty conveniently called suburbs;
In the face of the violence of a State that only obeys the wishes of the MEDEF [Employer's association], eager to cut our last remaining social rights a little more each day;
In the face of a State which alone is responsible for the tensions thanks to its Minister for Internal Affairs, who managed the post office conflicts [Bordeaux, July 2005] and the SNCM [marine transport towards Corsica, Marseilles - October 2005] with the use of its GIGN [Intervention Group of the National Gendarmerie] which ceaselessy swipes thousands of illegal immigrants;
The "republican shift" of the government is a takeover with military overtones and the aftertaste of the war in Algeria, against us, the workers, the precarious, the unemployed
and the "young".
The CNT denounces the decree imposing a curfew, which as usual does nothing to meet the demands for social justice by the population.
With the exploiters, never!
With the exploited, always!
