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

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!
