France's Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin recently called for the dissolution of the fascist youth organisation "Génération Identitaire" (GI), the French offshoot of the Identitarian Movement.

A Mahlsdorf private school is making headlines for its connections to fascists and Holocaust deniers. In 2019, for example, Nikolai Nehrling, a videoblogger, was a guest at one of its theater performances, long after he made headlines as a diligent fascist propagandist and was fired from teaching. Most recently, he relativized the Holocaust at Dachau concentration camp, where many communists were tortured and murdered, andmade appearances at Querdenken demonstrations.

As we reported earlier, France is in thefight against so-called "Islamism".  But this is not only happening nationally, but also internationally.

 

We hereby report on some developments in the political situation and the class struggle in the various Nordic Countries.

Recently, the annual report of the NGO "Human Rights Watch" was published, which reports on the human rights situation in different countries. France was also examined more closely. We would like to present a few results here. For interested readers, the entire report can be found as a PDF here. Among other things, the reactionary government's handling of the corona virus is denounced. The handling of giving more power to the executive has already been criticised in the past. But now the effects of the measures are also becoming apparent:

Every third person lost their income, millions of people were catapulted into poverty. The school closures also only highlight the contradictions between the different social classes.

Another thing, which we have also reported on here in several contexts, is the continuing police violence. For a long time, for example, an explosive tear gas grenade was used at demonstrations, which was now banned last year but replaced by a non-explosive variant. In addition, rubber bullets continue to be used, which have dangerously and fatally injured thousands of people. When the police act outside demonstrations, it can still be seen that they act in a particularly humiliating way against migrant youth. However, this is not only a problem of the police itself, but also imperialist chauvinism in general is very strong, which is also fuelled again and again by the reactionary government or also bourgeois media (we remember Charlie Hebdo). Figures have now been published on racist offences in 2019; unfortunately, these are still pending for last year and will only be published in the course of this year. The various offences are broken down into anti-Semitic acts (up 27%), anti-Muslim (up 54%) and "all other racist acts" (up 131%). The old French state is at the forefront of this when, for example, it dismantled a settlement of Roma families near Paris without providing them with replacement accommodation. But also the numerous violent evictions of self-built refugee camps give a hint that these are not a few "exceptions".

With the "Wieger", the GDR produced an assault rifle based on Kalashnikov, which was supposed to serve the procurement of foreign currency. For this purpose, the GDR deliberately relied on the NATO caliber of the imperialists and their lackeys.

The evening of the 16. of January, about a dozen policemen went to a proletarian neighborhood in Elsinore, some of them with helmets and rifles. Why? Because there was reports of 10 youths creating an “unsafe atmosphere”.

France's gendarmerie has problems. The number of applicants has been declining for years. That's why an agreement between the French employment office "Pôle Emploi" and the gendarmerie was already signed on the 4th of July 2019, shortly after an information event was organised to which the unemployed were then invited with their advisor.
