Popular Self-Defence in the Face of Police Violence!

Recent news has added many challenges that we must face in our daily lives: a state of emergency, institutional racism at the highest levels, attacks against working-class gains, strong confidence among fascists of all sorts, cops let loose in our neighbourhoods and in our struggles against us and the brothers and sisters of our class, …

But where there is oppression, there is resistance! And since the fight against the loi Travail [labour law], we see that we are more and more numerous in taking a stand. And once we take a stand, it is much more difficult to bring us down!

In opposition, the bourgeoisie and its guard dogs will do anything that they can to prevent us from retaking things for ourselves. The level of repression of the popular movement in relation to to daily police harassment and the state of emergency is high. Militarily, the French imperialist state bombs and kills in all four corners of the planet. The bourgeois, in order to get rich, have no problem throwing people out on the street, breaking families, causing suicides. Their level of violence is extremely high and it is clear that it will increase.

Our resistance exists, is living and is developing. Only the way of popular self-defense, clearly affirmed, generalised and organised will lead us to progress on the revolutionary path. We cannot remain satisfied with only the paths that the bourgeoisie would like to leave us. Our struggles, our perspectives carry the future, not this old state guaranteeing the exploitation and the oppression of our class.

The bourgeoisie leads a daily war against us. And the return of fire, that will be the revolutionary war. The people’s war, that is the war between two classes put into opposition by everything: on one side the bourgeoisie, and on the other, the workers and their allies. And this war is lead on all fronts: cultural, social, political, ideological, military, … It is a long process that requires getting organised, developing our own structures and retaking power in our hands.

“The people, and the people alone, are the motive force in the making of world history.”
-Mao Zedong

Against the war of the bourgeoisie, let’s prepare the people’s war!
