The Capitalist system is in crisis and there are attacks on all fronts against the workers conditions and rights. Goverments are desperate, and they are playing dangerous cards, as the Berlusconi government that in 2008 started a witch-hunt against the Roma people and immigrants, and now the Sarkozy government in France that is deporting the Roma.
The Secretariat encloses a statement called “Basta de deportaciones” from the SOV of CNT-AIT Jaén (Spain) that puts this into the right context:
Indifference and crime is the same thing – Mark Edelmann, leader of the rebellion at the Warsaw ghetto.
The CNT from Jaen CNT strongly condemns the horrific massiv deportations against the Roma in France. We denounce the intolerance of the neo-fascist government of Nicolas Sarkozy.
We believe that this deportation violates fundamental rights of a collective whose members are fully-fledged European citizens. Massive deportation of members of the Roma people is a fact that denigrates us all, without exception, French or not. We find it alarming that a country like France which was for long years victim of fascism and that has seen in the flesh what racial crimes mean (massive deportation included), is perpetrating this outrage.. We consider that these acts are based on an institutional politics that stigmatizes the Roma people.
