(en) Racism in Polish, racist state! rozbrat.org [machine translation]

Date Wed, 11 Jan 2017 12:50:36 +0200

The mouth of the Minister of Internal Affairs and Administration, Mariusz Blaszczak could hear that the events in Elk - the riots and destruction of a catering facility, after the death of a young man - an isolated incident. When the minister spoke those words we had to deal with the destruction of a catering facility in Lublin, the appearance of abusive inscriptions on the wall of a mosque in Gdansk, and at least one confirmed case of assault on a foreigner. For the accompanying events, media atmosphere, or heating racism and Islamophobia by right-wing and nationalist portals, and comments openly to encourage lynchings. ---- Power, however, still pretending that nothing happened, that in Poland there is no racism. This too is found in Western Europe and is the result of the failure of the policy of multiculturalism. For just such a reckless and ideological statements again he won the Law and Justice deputy. He is echoed by the Minister of Justice - Zbigniew Ziobro - which downplays the importance of racist symbols, and can have the same phenomenon of racism, in the end, in the opinion of the Minister, it becomes the only opposition to "the mixing of races." The authority, which has effectively orientated countrymen against accepting refugees, today seems to be doing a step further deepening atmosphere of intolerance and legitimizing the problem of racist violence. Clearly cited by the Ombudsman, police statistics confirming the increase in crime and violence of the racist base, in the language of power, quickly become mere "lewackim" gibberish, aimed to harm the image of the country.

Measure power passively look at the so-called opposition parties. Perhaps this is due to lack of courage to challenge the policy antyemigracyjna, or to admit that racism easiest to develop in countries affected by the economic crisis. Ultimately, this economic reasons several million Polish citizens decided to look for work in the countries of Western Europe, and today against the rising tide of xenophobia, they also meet with racist attacks, even in the UK.

In the current atmosphere that evokes the pogroms, it is especially important to apply critical of the current policy of the EU Member States systematically avoiding responsibility for the situation of refugees in the Middle East. Of course, at the forefront of the Poland and Hungary, which alone have not implemented the program reception. Thus, avoiding bear political responsibility for the destabilization of the region including military actions and political US and NATO, which gave blind support of successive Polish governments has led, among others, the war in Iraq and the development of ISIS. At the same time effectively utilizing the deepening since 2008 economic crisis, to prevent the implementation of the policy proimigracyjnej and control xenophobic moods perfectly checkers in the role of the tools of social divisions in the workplace and on the streets. Pursue policies of fear is an effective tool for building social consensus on the increasing attacks and a distraction from the economic and political causes of the crisis. It builds an atmosphere to justify racism, xenophobia and attacks on immigrants.

Our overwhelming response to the increasing violence against foreigners is essential. Islamophobia and racism are used in the control system, which aims to introduce power.

Every year, the Polish borders exceed thousands of immigrants. This group includes both victims of political conflicts and economic immigrants. Every man and woman has the right to move and live anywhere in the world.
The division of people because of religion, country of origin, skin color or economic status we consider unjustified and dangerous. Then, when the extreme right-wing sentiment fueled antyimigrancja hysteria, politicians are pleased with the growing social divisions through which it becomes impossible solidarity struggle for a decent life regardless of skin color, religion, social status, gender or origin. Manipulated by the right-wing and neo-fascist environmental public opinion, the scapegoat of every crisis is taking immigrants.

It is not immigrants are the problem, but the government, which benefits from the so-called. "Refugee crisis" and builds on it a dangerous political capital.

For us, foreign cultural nationalism, followed by up racism and xenophobia.
"Our" civilization is one in which everyone is equal. We demand that the authorities of the city of Poznan have implemented a local policy on migration, which will provide foreigners residing for years in Poznan, access to equal rights, regardless of their economic status and origin. We demand the answer to the so-called "migration crisis" through the launch of programs receiving refugees.

Solidarity our weapon,
class struggle is not national!
