Paris: cresce a resistência às rusgas policiais e às expulsões

 
A policia de Sarkozy começa a ficar seriamente preocupada com uma resistência que alastra além do circulo dos activistas. Um motim ocorreu terça feira em pleno centro de Paris, em Château-Rouge, quando a policia começou mais uma vez a desalojar e deter emigrantes.Como vem acontecendo desde há várias semanas [fotgrafias], mensagens com alertas urgentes são prontamente colocadas no Paris Indymedia,mas desta vez os activistas que ocorreram ao local tiveram a agradável surpresa de contar com o apoio da população e dos transeuntes que se juntaram na acção. A policia não teve outro remédio senão bater em retirada.

[Reportagem fotográfica no '20 Minutes']

Muitas pessoas ficaram chocadas com o tratamento brutal infligido aos emigrantes sem documentos e com a repressão que se seguiu aos dramáticos incêndios de prédios este Verão em Paris [fotografias], que vitimaram principalmente emigrantes: Pessoas continuam todos os dias a serem expulsas de suas casas, a pretexto destes prédios serem pouco seguros, sem qualquer pré-aviso. Estas casas não são ocupações (se bem que as ocupações também estejam a ser vitimas de uma repressão que acelera), são apartamentos alugados e onde vivem algumas pessoas há mais de 48 anos... para se verem uma manhã abandonadas na rua sem mais nada do que a oferta da noite seguinte num albergue.
Esta resistência é um desafio a Sarkozy e à UMP, o partido do governo, mas está também a criar sérios problemas ao Partido Socialista via Delanoë, o presidente da Câmara de Paris, assim como aos Verdes encarregues do alojamento social do município sendo todos energicamente criticados pelos activistas.

local population ...

If one looks at the photoreport, it becomes clear that the lauded "street riot" comprising of "local population" looks remarkably like a group of illegals driving off the cops, rather than some generalised *broad* rebellion against the police. And that would make sense, given that the cops would probably try to set their snares in an immigrant neighbourhood first; it's no wonder the folks there don't like the idea of carefully enforced immigration laws. However, this sheds no light on what the average French voter thinks of the matter. In fact, one could argue that the cops are actually the physical incarnation of the public opinion about the illegals. Democracy can produce such cognitively dissonant outcomes, and it always amuses me to see the "activist" community twist themselves into knots trying to work things out.

thanx

thanx mc for your very "constructive" commentary - i guess people are doing their best to contain such an agressive eviction of migrants - and the conflict is there visible, instead of having been done, this eviction, without any public knowledge - that resistance, even when little, is still something - in spain, because of these news been spread, we are able to connect, if you just think about it a bit, this agressions in france with the beating and shooting and killing of african migrants in the south european frontier - - that's something to start with, stablish connections between little responses to great conflicts here and there, cause we are just at the beggining of a huge transnational conflict/struggle, the migrant question, which is gonna evolve in the next (many) years, and will for sure take many different shapes...

all positive commentaries, even --above all-- positive criticism, are always wellcome in order to construct opposition and rebellion everywhere - cynical commentaries on how easy and infantil activists are, dont go further, and in fact they re-inforce conformism and right-wing conservatism - wanna know what middle-class voters think about the situation in france? you go ask them - to start with, i prefer to know to know how the actual conflict evolve, how activists were able or not to stop evictions, what their experience is, what we can do anywhere else, how do we learn little by little from experiences of migrant resistence everywhere...

more thanx - to those "infantil" activists in france struggling for migrants' rights everywhere - all my support to you -

I think our world could use a bit more democracy. I dont feel that I have much personal say in matters here in Canada. I think this political system resembles a republic more than a true democracy.

Power to the peaceful.

Not just Paris: other cities & Lyon as well!!!
