Alternative libertaire, Mouvement des Objecteurs de Croissance, Nouveau Parti Anticapitaliste, Parti Communiste des Ouvriers de France The slaughter perpetrated atCharlie Hebdo editorial offices has caused a perfectly legitimate wave of indignation and anger, that we share. Our condemnation of this massacre, that aims at wreaking terror and silencing journalists defending freedom of speech, is total.
We condemn with equal determination the murderous antisemitic violence that has been unleashed against a cosher supermarket's customers.

Our thoughts go out to the victims' relatives to whom we wish to express our total support.

These attacks are the work of religious fascists whose dream it is to impose their deadly illusions on society. We must be very clear in denouncing unreservedly this fanaticism. We fight all fascisms, whether they thrive on nationalism or beliefs from the Dark Ages, whichever their guide or prophet. Their only wish is to spread terror, deliberately provoke horror and fear, and create situations of extreme tension. In this, they are the perfect accomplices of the National Front and the extreme right.
As we feared, this killing has become a fodder for racist speeches and a pretext to attack muslim places of worship.
You can tell the reactionary penpushers and opportunistic politicians won't be long in ranting about the so-called « Shock of Civilisations », and to use the event to renew their attacks against immigrants, foreigners and muslims.
We are not less shocked by the way it is politically exploited in particular by the Hollande Government. The call on « national unity » is just a huge smokescreen to create confusion and to justify : 
 France's military interventions in Irak, Mali, and Central Africa, whose primary goal was to preserve the imperialist interests of French companies in the area, maintain its dictators, and never to fight jihadism that France has never hesitated to arm under other circumstances.
 A new attack on freedom. Just like in the aftermath of 9/11, governments will use antiterrorism as an excuse for more surveillance and filing, that experience has proved to be used more often against union workers and political. 
The government's antisocial policy. By surfing on the emotional shock that has impacted each and everyone of us, Valls and Hollande want to push the current austerity policy in the background, particularly the Macron law project (discussed end of January in Parliament) that aims at fragilising even more the workers means of defence, making further layoffs even more easy, degrading the amount of nightshift and sunday overtime.

Looking at it all from a broader perspective, many among the political forces that make a show of being outraged today are partly responsible for the country's poisonous atmosphere by stigmatising immigrant workers and their children, more so if they appear to be Muslim.
This exploitation is all the more outrageous that Charlie Hedo's assassinated journalists never thought twice about condemning politicians the like of Hollande, Sarkozy or Le Pen. If the PS and UMP (respectively the French socialist and right-wing parties) had had their way, the National Front would have been invited to the so-called « republican march » on Sunday. What would the murdered journalists have thought of this ?
We deeply regret that Sunday's demonstration – initially set up by antiracist organisations - was transformed into a « Republican march » for which Valls would like to appear as the organiser and where Sarkozy will be marching.
Fiercely opposed to this « national unity », for the reasons mentioned above, we will not participate. It is of utmost importance that all those who feel outraged by this fascist attempt and who refuse to march alongside Sarkozy and Valls, all those who are intent on resisting racism and discriminations, on opposing security policies designed to curb our liberties, to regroup and recapture the intiative

textDeportation: a policy that leads to despair 19:14 Thu 23 Oct by Alternative Libertaire 0 comments

Josiane Nardi died after setting herself on fire, in front of the press, on October 18 in front of the prison in Le Mans, as a protest against the decision to deport her partner, currently held in the prison, to Armenia. This desperate gesture comes as a response to government brutality founded on the "quota policy", which continues to claim more expulsions and permanently criminalises immigration. [Français]

To begin with, let me make it clear from the outset that I consider the attack on the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo to be an atrocity and that I do not believe that it is justifiable under any circumstances to make a military target of a journalist, no matter what our opinion on the quality of his journalism may be. The same is valid in France, as it is in Colombia or in Palestine. Also, nor do I identify with any fundamentalism, whether it be Christian, Jewish or Muslim, nor indeed with Frenchified mock-secularism either, which makes a goddess of the “République”.

The local election campaigna has begun and the politicians are busy trying to outdo each other in racism. For two reasons: firstly, they think it's like stroking the electorate's hair, it's what they want to hear (what contempt!), and secondly, while the media are talking about it, the people are not wondering about unemployment, poverty and the distribution of wealth.
