Jaldia Abubakra, a member of the Follow-Up Committee of the Palestinian Alternative Revolutionary Path Movement (Masar Badil), said that the French interior minister’s announcement of his intention to dissolve the Collectif Palestine Vaincra reflects the essence of the racist and colonialist French policies toward Palestine and the rights of the Palestinian people. Once again, it reveals the French state’s bias towards the Zionist entity and the camp of imperialism and colonialism, led by the United States.
Abubakra said further: “Collectif Palestine Vaincra is an integral part of the Palestinian liberation movement in its international dimension and an active, important member of Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network. The Collectif is playing a central role in the struggle for the liberation of imprisoned Lebanese struggler for Palestine, comrade Georges Abdallah, from French prisons, as well as in confronting racist policies targeting migrants, refugees, communities of color and especially workers and impoverished people in France.
She urged all of the organizations and associations supportive of the Masar Badil to raise their voices against the French state’s intended repression of the Collectif by expressing “principled and practical solidarity with our comrades confronting an official French campaign that has been fueled by years of lies by Zionist and fascist forces in Europe.”
The French Interior Minister, Gerald Darmanin, announced his intention to dissolve the Collectif Palestine Vaincra, reportedly at the request of French president Emmanuel Macron. In a statement, the Collectif emphasized its rejection of this arbitrary decision, which came as a result of an ongoing smear campaign led by the extremist “Israeli” right and its supporters in France, because of the Collectif’s work to build solidarity with the Palestinian people and confront colonialism, racism and the apartheid regime in Palestine.
