Les Indignés de Dunkerque - Compte rendu de l’action “Occupons Pôle Emploi”


La marche funèbre organisée le 17/01/2012 par les Indignés de Dunkerque pour symboliser la disparition de l’emploi a été un franc succès.


 

Une vingtaine de personnes ont participé à cette action, pour accompagner le cercueil de l’emploi de la place Jean Bart jusqu’au Pôle Emploi des Bazennes, où nous avons rejoint des militants du Front de Gauche.

De nombreux médias étaient présents, ce qui nous a assuré une bonne couverture médiatique, et donc une plus grande diffusion de notre message sur le dunkerquois.


 

Il est nécessaire de rappeler que cela fut notre première action, et que nous en sommes très fiers. Il y a trois mois, lorsque les cinq premiers indignés se sont rassemblés pour lancer le mouvement sur Dunkerque, beaucoup étaient sceptiques sur la capacité du mouvement à perdurer et à imaginer de nouvelles formes d’actions. Nous leur démontrons aujourd’hui qu’ils ont eu tort.


 

Nous remercions par ailleurs tout ceux qui ont participé de près ou de loin à l’organisation de cette action, et nous espérons qu’elle en appellera d’autres très rapidement.


 

Pour terminer, nous vous mettons à disposition des articles qui ont été rédigés sur la ”marche funèbre” d’hier, ainsi qu’une vidéo tournée par nos propres soins.

 A Londres, la justice autorise l'éviction des indignés de Saint-Paul

La Haute Cour de Londres a autorisé mercredi 18 janvier l'éviction des manifestants anti-capitalistes installés depuis trois mois devant la cathédrale Saint-Paul, en plein cœur de la City, le quartier des affaires de la capitale britannique.

La justice a donné raison à la ville de Londres, qui avait demandé l'évacuation du camp, arguant notamment que les dizaines de tentes constituaient une "obstruction illégale de la voie publique". La municipalité de Londres a salué cette décision."Nous espérons maintenant que les manifestants vont volontairement enlever leurs tentes. Dans le cas contraire, et s'il n'y a pas d'appel, nous examinerons les mesures à prendre pour faire appliquer" la décision de justice "aussi vite que possible", a prévenu la ville de Londres.

"Des manifestations légales font partie de la vie de la City mais une voie publique n'est pas faite pour accueillir des tentes (...) et de plus en plus de désordre et de bruit. Le public est perdant", a-t-elle ajouté dans un communiqué.

 

BASTION DES INDIGNÉS D'EUROPE

Le campement de Londres, créé dans la foulée d'"Occupy Wall Street", fait figure de bastion des "indignés" en Europe. L'attitude à adopter à l'égard des protestataires a profondément divisé les responsables religieux de Saint-Paul au point que plusieurs d'entre eux, dont le doyen, ont remis leur démission.

Fin octobre, la cathédrale avait dû fermer ses portes aux visiteurs quelques jours pour des raisons de sécurité et d'hygiène, une première depuis la seconde guerre mondiale.

Alors que le mouvement anti-Wall Street tend à s'essouffler aux Etats-Unis, ses sympathisants ayant été chassés des parcs et places de diverses villes où ils manifestaient, celui des indignés parisiens a pris fin début décembre. Vingt-trois d'entre eux, qui s'étaient installés dans des tentes sur le parvis de la Défense, s'estiment avoir été victimes de "violences illégitimes et disproportionnées" de la part des forces de l'ordre, et ont porté plainte.

Updated with judgment documents – Judge Rules Against OccupyLSX

*** Updated with copy of the judgment handed down by Mr Justice Lindblom, along with a summary ***

The High Court this week ruled in favour of the City of London Corporation’s calls for the eviction of the Occupy London protest camp outside St. Paul’s Cathedral. Mr Justice Lindblom pointed to the extent and duration of the obstruction of the highway at St. Paul’s as factors behind his decision to back the City, as well as the effect of the camp on Cathedral worshippers and visitors, and an alleged ‘private nuisance’ to the church.

The  High Court ruling comes on the heels of recent headlines regarding the  failed attempt by the Metropolitan Police to clear the entirety of the  Parliament Square protest camp at the start of the week – the site where  highly acclaimed peace campaigner Brian Haw spent a decade in protest  against British foreign policy in the Middle East.

With the facts of the latest eviction case largely undisputed, the argument before the court instead focused on whether the City of London could prove that an eviction would be a “lawful, necessary and proportionate” interference with protesters’ right to freedom of conscience, freedom of expression and freedom of assembly. According to the court’s interpretation of the European Convention of Human Rights, any interference with these rights must present the “least intrusive way” of addressing protests and meet the aforementioned conditions of lawfulness, necessity and proportionality.

In his decision, the Judge accepted the argument of the City of London that concerns about safety, cleanliness and access to public highways presented “powerful considerations… that easily outweigh factors against [an eviction]” and that an eviction did not “impose excessive burden” on Occupy’s right to free speech and freedom of assembly. He stated that Occupy had “ultimately [failed]… to put right many of the problems caused by the camp.” The Judge also ruled that the camp cannot simply be moved to adjacent land, and that the City of London “had no sensible choice but to do what it has”.

Judge Lindblom paid tribute to the way Occupy London activists conducted themselves in this case, and stated that his ruling was not intended to delegitimise protests against greed and injustice. In avid affirmation of this fact, mic checks sounded out inside the court, stating: “No matter what they say about Occupy, our behaviour has been better than those we are fighting.”

The Judge turned down a direct request to appeal the decision, but granted permission to Occupy defendants to take their case to the court of appeal. Addressing a courthouse packed with supporters, the Judge ruled that in the event of no registered appeal by 16:00 on 27th January,  eviction proceedings would be permitted to get underway. Defendant Daniel Ashman responded to the eviction ruling by stating outright that an appeal would be lodged with the Court of Appeal – a position later reiterated by defence John Cooper QC. Leave to appeal the ruling is expected to be made on Thursday. Commenting on the motivation behind such legal action, Ashman stated: “There are still avenues that can be exhausted. We will exhaust these avenues to see whether true justice can exist.”

Barrister Michael Paget commented on the High Court’s conclusion with claims that proportionality and necessity of an eviction are far from obvious, stating: “The Judge could have said that we are not allowed to stay overnight. But he has gone much further than that and said that we’re not allowed to go there during the day. That is the ground for the appeal.”

Charges against the Occupy London site were initially brought forward by the City of London Corporation – the local governing body for London’s Square Mile. This week’s court activity was a follow-up to a five-day hearing ahead of Christmas, which saw the City bring legal action against activists, citing concerns about sanitation on site alongside allegations relating to safety, vandalism, the appeal of the site to some of the city’s more vulnerable residents and obstruction of the public highway. During the earlier hearing, Judge Lindblom turned down a request by David Forsdick, the counsel for the City of London Corporation, for a decision on an eviction order ahead of the festive holiday. Judge Lindblom concluded that more time was needed to reflect on a final decision, pushing the ruling back to the opening of the courts in the New Year.

During the course of this week’s hearing, defendants George Barda, Daniel Ashman and Tammy Samede represented Occupy London. George Barda argued that protest movements are within the interests of wider society, reiterating a sentiment expressed earlier in the day by former Cathedral canon chancellor Giles Fraser, who tweeted ahead of the hearing: “Whatever happens, the voice of protest must continue to be heard.”

Fraser famously resigned his position at the Cathedral in the early days of the occupation site, stating his belief that the church should not put its name to any course of action that may lead to violence against the protesters.

The hearing was followed by a procession of activists and supporters from the Royal Courts of Justice to the St. Paul’s camp. The mood of the subsequent General Assembly was described as “emotional and defiant” by Occupied Times reporter Mircea Barbu, and activists noted that the Judge made no comment on the merit of the protest – instead noting that its up to Parliament to decide on the running of the City of London. While some protesters expressed disappointment in Judge Lindblom, many vowed to continue their protest. According to one attendee at the General Assembly, “some people are starting to talk our language. We are having an impact”.

Speaking at the GA, main defendant Tammy Samede said: “All I want you to do is carry on Occupying. If you’re watching livestream, thank you. If you’re doing other things thank you. We’re all doing different stuff. Think back to how it was in the first few weeks. Keep the energy. Stop fighting, we need to be united. Carry on occupying.” Added Mark Weaver: “As the Judge said, ‘You cannot evict an idea.’ This signals another turning point for the Occupy movement. Occupy is moving and it will continue to move for many years. This is just one turn in the road.”
