[Brazil] Convocation for international solidarity!
Tuesday June 25, 2013 21:32 by anonimo - Anarchist Popular Union (UNIPA)
ConvocaÁ„o para solidariedade internacional! / Convocation for international solidarity! / Llamamiento a la solidaridad internacional!
We write in the name of the Anarchist Popular Union (UNIPA), the revolutionary organization of Brazil, to urge the international support and to do a denounce about the syndicates and syndicate centrals that are fulfilling a reactionary paper in front of the popular levant.
The Brazil, since of June 17 live the true popular levant. The labors and students, the poor youth went to the streets to fight. Because of this we have a dead demonstrator and many wounded demonstrators. The police run over by demonstrators. Even with the use of firearms and four young boys shot, the demonstrates didnít stop. The labors get on with the demonstrates without weapons against the police armed and armored cars. The hospital where the demonstrates took refuge was attacked with rubber bullets, gas bombs and pump moral effect. But we are ready to face this state repression. What we didnít tolerate is the desertion and the betrayal of the syndicates centrals.
However, the syndicates centrals are betraying the protests. Not only they didnít take part with the streets combats but also are denouncing on the media the labors like vandals and criminals, these labors are resisting against the assault and abuse of authority. The CUT, the CSP-CONLUTAS, the CTB and the political parties are doing a public denounces of ďradicals and anarchistsĒ like criminals, preparing so the legitimation of the fascist state and its crackdown.
The big corporations of media (newspapers, TVís and radio) are urging the violence against the radicals. They speak about two sides: vandals and pacific demonstrates. These last ones would be who have the rights inside the democracy. The firsts would be common criminals. But those who are on the barricades can testify: the word that animate these youth is the resistance and the revolution.
Right now the organizations and syndicates centrals are working to demobilize the protests. Incur themselves on the most infamous works.
Comrades, itís fundamental that the comrades know these events and that demonstrate your public solidary.
Comrades itís fundamental that the internationalist solidary is heard. We need that the Europe labors and world labors demonstrate your unrestricted support to whom resist on the streets, facing the death and the police brutality. We have been abandoned, betrayed and attacked by leaders that would be in the front line.
In this sense we urge the comrades to:
1) Organize acts on the embassies and consulates of Brazil, in defense of the rights of resistance, denouncing that the labors that resist in Brazil didnít are vandals, because they are recognized as legitimate fighters of the proletariat by the international organizations.
2) Do a campaign of pression together the Brazilian and international press, denouncing the criminalization of the direct action movement in Brazil, to the liberty of the politics prisoners and withdrawal criminal processes.
This internationalist support is urgent. We write from Brazil and direct by the barricades where we are on the front lines, facing the enemy and unfortunately too in our rear.
Anarquism is fight!
The people won!
