(en) France, UCL press release, In the face of fascist danger, patriarchy and lesbophobia, long live lesbian visibility and resistance! (ca, de, it, fr, pt, tr)[machine translation]

Date Thu, 28 Apr 2022 08:04:45 +0300


In 1982, the first march for lesbian visibility was organized in Canada. 40 years later, lesbians and their allies continue to march. Last year 10,000 people marched in Paris, heralding the first mass demonstration of lesbians and their supporters in France. Today like yesterday, the UCL calls to join the marches of April 23 in several cities. ---- A year after the first mass mobilization of lesbians, where are we? ---- The implementation of the law on PMA for lesbians and single women, which was the main objective of the demonstrators, was won last summer! Unsurprisingly, its implementation was not done with the necessary means. Consequences? An interminable wait, a sorting out of requests, closed doors as witnessed by many lesbians. Racialized lesbians denounce the discrimination to which they are subjected: no pairing, no gamettes, waiting times multiplied by two, no measures taken by the State to break the restrictions. Trans people remain excluded from this right.

The extreme right a mortal danger for lesbians.
We no longer have time for the extreme right and its fascist militias are at the gates of power. The time has come to organize and strengthen our counter-powers[1]. We know that the rise of the extreme right and reactionary themes is giving way to an outbreak of LGBTIphobia and its attacks. Last year 80 fascists attacked the Dyke's march in Lyon in the city center.

The far right is the mortal enemy of lesbians and LGBTI people. Fachos on all sides, they are attacking the rights of sexual minorities to better protect those who continue to get rich. Faced with danger, sexual minorities cannot dismiss the danger Le Pen and Macron back to back. Our message: not a voice for the extreme right!

Faced with the extreme right, an imperative: to unite
The extreme right spreads a national novel, at the heart of it: a fantasized identity. "To be French" would be to be white, heterosexual, of Christian culture. Minorities, especially sexual ones, are excluded from this identity, from this "national body". Alternately suspected (the so-called "LGBT conspiracy"), intimidated, abused, LGBTI people find themselves singled out by this nationalist logic. For racialized lesbians, the rejection of the national body is all the more virulent.

Because the hatred against LGBTI minorities has grown stronger, because it is fueled by far-right groups, political and religious fascists in their strategy to conquer power, more than ever let us return to the path of struggle: let's organize the social response which involves the anti-fascist struggle. Organize popular self-defense.

Let's refuse their world, let's build ours.
Difficulty finding accommodation, difficulty making ends meet, filling the fridge, and for many the closet as a bonus, suffering and isolation. In this context of lasting crisis, the bourgeoisie has only one idea in mind: to maintain its profits at all costs. We will stand up because it is in the struggle of the oppressed that our hopes lie. Unity is to be strengthened between our counter-powers, against the far right and the patriarchy which is the matrix of LGBTIphobia

We want to live without domination, to live free in a society free from exploitation, where social equality would be ensured by the collective management of our needs and means of production, where the emancipation of each would be everyone's business. · your both in his sexual orientation and in his life choices, where solidarity would be the basis of society. This is called libertarian communism.

The Libertarian Communist Union, April 21, 2022.

To validate

[1]Counter-power: structure with which the oppressed establish themselves to fight against the exploitation of which they and they are victims, for example family planning, struggle unions, "intra-community " health and support associations".
