Solidarity with Théo and every victim of police abuse!
No to the “Public Security” law !

The Coordination of Arnarchist Groups (CGA) affirms its solidarity with Théo, who was raped, beaten and insulted by four policemen on the second of last February. We also affirm our solidarity with people who has shown and keep showing their legitimate outrage against police in Aulnay and others municipalities of Seine-Saint-Denis. We denounce the use of violence by the police against protesters, in particular the warning shots using live rounds during the night from the 6th to the 7th of February, as well as all the arrests and the criminal convictions. This Saturday the 11th of February, demonstration against police violence and in solidarity with Théo were organized all over France. Thousands of protesters gathered in front of the Bobigny court where the repression was very severe.

The abuses suffered by Théo cannot be considered as an individual case: over and beyond the beating and injuries, some surveys show an average of 10 to 15 deaths linked to the police each year (there is no official statistics on this subject). Let us remember the most newsworthy ones such as Zyed and Bouna, Wissam El Yamni, Rémi Fraisse and Adama Traoré. The impunity following these cases enforces the all powerful feeling of the police that always goes further.
The police willingly relays the State racism that is being institutionalized and moreover trivialized through the laws, the practices and the speeches. Cop racism expresses itself shamelessly in the working-class districts where racial profiling and more or less violent humiliations are common.

The endless state of emergency gives the police more and more powers without almost any judiciary control. The State asked its police to increase the repression and the violence against the “work act” protestation. These rules contributed to unleash the cops.
Last fall, during their “protestations”, cops asked for additional resources, a “greater freedom of action against offenders”, and an extension of the self defense framework. This was welcomed with kindness and attention of almost all the political class and the government which increased the budget by 250 millions € and is actually discussing the enactment of the widening of the self defense framework for the police.

Cynicism breaks every boundaries when, on Wednesday the 8th of February, while Théo is still in the hospital, the National Assembly enacts the “public security” act, which softens the rules of self defense for the cops, raises the jail duration for assault on police and authorizes the investigators to remain anonymous. This law also states that cops could use their weapon “if threatened by anyone carrying a weapon” (without defining the weapon types) or “when they cannot defend in an other way the position they keep”. All this blur can only leads to other tragedies.

We demand the end of police impunity, the repeal of the “public security” act, the lifting of the state of emergency and the abrogation of all security laws.
Don't let our rights and social conquests be trim away!

February the 12th of 2017,

cga.jpg imageFascist attack in Croix Rousse (Lyon) and on the anarchist bookstore la Plume Noire 03:13 Tue 22 Nov by Coordination des Groupes Anarchistes - Lyon 4 comments

The resistance of our comrades prevented the fascists to enter the place, but couldn’t avoid property damages: the destruction of all window panes and part of the metal blinds. Several people were slightly injured in this attack that lasted long minutes, mainly because of projectiles (stones, metallic tools, bottles) thrown by the fascists. When they arrived and when they left, the fascists chanted “on est chez nous”, “la France aux Français” (xenophobic slogans) and “death to the Jews”, as signs of rally and dispersion.
This heinous attack isn’t an isolated incident. It took place nearly 20 years after far-right activists set fire to the previous location of the “Plume Noire” in 1997, and it follows from the current rise of far-right and fascism, which results in a multiplication of attacks against minorities, trade unionists, and feminist, antiracist, LGBT and progressive activists.

More than 500 people marched on Saturday, 27 March in the streets of Chauny (in the northern French region of Picardy) to say clearly that they have had their fill of the arrogance of a small group of young Nazis who, every weekend, have been provoking and using violence against any young people in the town who do not share their ideas or who have different skin colour. The demonstration also sought to denounce the fact that the authorities have been turning a blind eye to this fascist, racist violence.

textAgainst Fascism, Massive Disobedience, General Strike Nov 18 CNT AIT 3 comments

In 2002 the people of France got together to vote for Chirac in order to build a barrier in the way of Fascism, but now we can see that a vote for Chirac was in fact a vote for Fascism. Several days ago the French State declared the Marseille transport strike illegal and On the 8th November it declared a State of Emergency. It is time to fight. The CNT-AIT will call a General Strike.
