(en) France, Union Communiste Libertaire UCL - Extreme right-wing coup in the United States (ca, de, it, fr, pt)[machine translation]

Date Tue, 12 Jan 2021 10:30:10 +0200

As the US Congress was preparing to validate the election of Joe Biden, the demonstration by supporters of Donald Trump invaded the Capitol. In front of the building at the heart of US parliamentary power, militiamen destroyed Associated Press material openly calling for civil war while inside, covered in neo-Nazi, Confederate and anti-Semitic symbols, these people took pictures of themselves with cops, complicit in letting them invade the square, and threatened a coup. Explosive material was discovered at the scene. ---- Trump tried to appease by throwing fuel on the fire ---- During his speech, the president called on his supporters to return home and themselves while perpetuating the lies that galvanized them. Overwhelmed by the turn of this historically tragic event, he announced, with undisguised pride, that he loved the militiamen and continued to fuel them with his fantasy of massive fraud in a largely lost election.

This event is in the continuity of the murders perpetrated by the American extreme-right in Charlottesville (Viriginie), during an anti-fascist demonstration, or Kenosha (Wisconsin), in full demonstration of the movement Black Lives Matters, and with the rise in power of the militias. armies like the Proud Boys, which Trump had encouraged to mobilize during the election.

Trump's entire tenure is summed up in these words and in this coup.

In France, the fascosphere is excited
Identitarians, negationists and nationalists from all walks of life rejoice and exult or try to create a diversion by vomiting on the Black Live Matters movement and its alleged violence. The neofascists know how to recognize each other and confirm that in France, they are ready to support a coup d'état. Trump and his strategy have indeed been emulated since the European tour of his special adviser Steve Bannon in 2018. The unwavering support, the elements of identical languages and hazy theories have punctuated the speeches of the leaders of the right and the French extreme right. And the strategy is paying off if we judge by the meetings of Macron's advisers with the Le Pen or the still worrying trivialization of reactionary terminology in the mouth of the French president.

Anti-fascist and international solidarity
Our thoughts are first and foremost with our American comrades who, despite several mobilizations and movements of different natures and importance, have resisted this rise in power by far-right forces. We want to recall that the anti-fascist struggle was, is, and will remain internationalist and that our solidarity knows no borders. It is therefore important to mobilize against all reactionaries, in Europe, the United States and everywhere else in the world.

This is why the UCL calls for mass mobilization during regional demonstrations on Saturday January 9 against the religious ultranationalism of Erdogan who in addition to oppressing and massacring the inhabitants of Kurdistan regularly causes wars as recently in Haut -Karabakh.
