Gérald Darmanin, French Minister of the Interior, has just announced his intention to dissolve the Collectif Palestine Vaincra and another pro-Palestinian organization at the request of French president Emmanuel Macron. This scandalous decision is the result of a relentless and slanderous campaign led by the Israeli extreme right and its agents in France against the Collectif, because of our work in solidarity with the Palestinian people against colonialism, racism and apartheid.
This announcement is a new step in the authoritarian escalation of the French government which has already dissolved, or threatened to dissolve, several Muslim, anti-racist and radical left-wing media organizations. We will not be intimidated. Solidarity with Palestine is not only a right but a duty.
We are already calling for a broad response from political organizations, unions, associations, collectives in support of the Collectif Palestine Vaincra and against the criminalization of the solidarity movement with Palestine.
Palestine will live, Palestine will win!
