(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #295 - Social Bastion in Marseille: the fascists settle, the riposte tramples (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Wed, 12 Jun 2019 06:10:22 +0300

In Marseille, people have been fighting for years against the establishment of the far right in the neighborhoods. And the police put a spoke in the wheels ... antifascists. Thanks Macron ! ---- In the Bouches du Rhône, activists French Action (AF) launched the Social Bastion (BS), a network initiated by the Gud, first in Aix with the opening in February 2018 of the Bastide. It was then in Marseilles, on March 24, that a hundred fascists from all over France inaugurated Navarin Street Fort-Notre-Dame, located between the Old Port and Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde. Meanwhile, a thousand protesters marched on the Canebiere, demanding its ban. ---- This is not a first attempt, the AF has already hosted a local Navarin street in the district of La Plaine. This time, they hope that it will be better. Indeed in La Plaine the resistance was quickly organized: local residents and residents of the local had assembled a collective after threats and racist and sexist aggression. In this turbulent neighborhood, they had found the support needed to lead a long-term struggle, victorious after three years: the AF then leaves the Plain for a less fighting neighborhood where she thinks she can activate without opposition. In memory, she baptizes her new place by the name of the rue de l'ancien.

In early 2019, the group against the BS revives the mobilization so that the first anniversary of Navarrese is the last. The announcement by Macron of its dissolution does not encourage to give up, on the contrary: it is necessary to maintain the pressure so that the presidential declaration is translated by acts. In the weeks leading up to the initiative, tugs and signatures of petitions are organized in the neighborhood. On Friday, March 22, an evening is held in the room of the former printing house of the newspaper La Marseillaise. It begins with the screening of the first part of Al Jezeera's documentary "Génération Haine"Shot in hidden camera at the Citadel, the local Lille Identity Generation. Around 80 people participate in the debate that follows, residents and residents of Navarin Street are present to talk about their experience.

The mobilization against the Social Bastion had a certain success in March 2018. The same can not be said of that of March 2019.
The next day is the demonstration. At the starting point, the antifascists mix briefly with more than a thousand yellow vests (GJ) who had already been demonstrating for several hours. But when the latter continue on their side, disappointment, we are more than 500, including forty GJ, unions CGT, FSU, Solidaires and CNT, political organizations including AL, associations, and anti-fascists, some came to reinforce Paris, Lyon and elsewhere. It is not brilliant for an initiative carried by forty organizations and prepared for more than a month ...

The particularly important repressive device is not slow in coming into action. Arrived on the Canebière, the head of the demonstration is attacked without reason, the demonstrators and disperse dispersed in disorder. After a flutter, the event is reformed to
