Margaret Thatcher est certainement l'une des pires criminelles de guerre et de paix de l'histoire contemporaine. Il est particulièrement odieux que cette va-t-en guerre, semeuse de misère et destructrice du lien social et des solidarités dans son pays comme dans le reste du monde soit honorée à titre posthume comme une gloire nationale et internationale alors qu'elle méritait au mieux le tribunal pénal international et la fosse commune. Je ne peux donc que vous relayer l'appel ci-dessous que je viens de recevoir et dont j'ai résumé, ci-dessus, ce qu'il détaille dans la langue de Shakespear et de cette ignoble pétasse... De Napoléon à Staline ou Kennedy, il est temps d'arrêter de rendre hommage aux pires salauds de l'histoire !
Remember the victims of Thatcherism. Protests on 13 and 17 April.
Giving Thatcher a £10 million ceremonial funeral is an insult to all those who suffered from her policies and actions.
Thatcher was responsible for the destruction of communities and the decimation of industry, sending in troops and police to beat the unions into submission.
She openly played the race card, promoting the view that Britain was ‘swamped’ with immigrants, and sent her police force to harass and attack black communities until the inner-cities burned.
She backed police corruption at Hillsborough, attacking Liverpool fans for the deaths of their children.
She called Nelson Mandela a terrorist, but funded Pol Pot and welcomed Augusto Pinochet to tea, ignoring the untold people tortured and killed in Cambodia and Chile.
To win an election she jumped on the chance to go to war with Argentina, leaving the blood of teenage soldiers on the shores of the Falklands.
The woman who did all this is not worthy of respect, not even in death.
She has no right to be buried with honours, as she had no honour, no decency, no honesty and no compassion.
We will not forget her crimes. We will not allow the glorification of Thatcher to go unchallenged.
And this is about more than one woman. Beyond her individual crimes, Thatcher was part of something much bigger, a tide of rampant free market capitalism that is still tearing our world to pieces. Thatcher, Reagan, Bush, Blair, Cameron, Obama and the rest are the cheerleaders for capitalism, a system of greed and destruction that causes austerity, war, poverty, and crisis.
The establishment and media are trying to cover up Thatcher's crimes, as the state spreads scare stories about police clampdowns and pre-emptive arrests. But we are not scared. For our communities, for our loved ones, for ourselves and for our planet, we need to make our voices heard.
Come to Trafalgar Square on Saturday 13 th, and next Wednesday17 th in London, in Glasgow, in Sheffield, in Liverpool, in all of the towns and cities hit by Thatcherism, let's take to the streets. Talk to your friends and neighbours, organise protests in Central London and wherever you are.
No more Thatchers. No more capitalism.
Stop G8 is organising a week of action and events in London from June 10 to 14, including the #J11 Carnival Against Capitalism on June 11.
Our aim is nothing less than the destruction of capitalism, a system that is literally killing us. Capitalism means unemployment, cuts, and the rise of fascism in the “West”; poverty, colonialism, brutal exploitation in the “Third World”.
Capitalism is war and famine for profit, private prisons, police checks, CCTV to keep us scared and controlled.
It is a system that robs our lives of meaning and beauty, puts our dreams and our dignity up for sale, and risks the very future of our planet.
We are ready to fight, Join Us!
