                       Even the Americans protest against the military and integrist drift of their government…

More than 15 000 citizens of the USA signed a call to resistance vis-a-vis the military and integrist drift of their government. This call gathers very many personalities coming from political scenes and extremely various social groups. Since the war of Vietnam, the United States had not seen the emergence of such a movement of dispute interns…

That it is never known as that the United States did not do anything when their government declared a war unbounded and legatee of measurements of repression Draconian.

The signatories of this proclamation invite the citizens of the United States to resist these new measurements and the overall policy followed since September 11, 2001. Those represent serious dangers to all the citizens of the whole world.

We believe firmly that the people and the nations have the right to determine their own destiny, safe from the military coercion exerted by the great powers. We believe that any person held or passed in judgement by the government of the United States is entitled to the same legal procedure. We believe that the handing-over in question, criticism, and the dissension are significant legitimate rights which must be protected. We are conscious owing to the fact that these rights are always disputed and must be maintained, was this at the price of the fight.

We believe that the men and women of conscience must assume the responsibility for what their respective governments do. We must first of all oppose to us to the injustices made on our behalf. This is why we invite all the Americans to resist the war and repression unchained against the world by the administration of Mr. Bush. They are unjust, immoral and illegitimate. We chose to make common cause with the citizens of the world.

We also were shocked by the terrible events of September 11, 2001. We also deplored the death of thousands of innocent and looked with horror and incomprehension the scenes of carnages - all while pointing out other scenes similar in Baghdad to us, in Panama, and, a generation earlier, in Vietnam. As million Americans in the anguish, we also wondered how such a thing had been able to occur.

However, mourning had hardly started that the leaders of the countries highest placed unchained already the spirit of revenge. They returned public a simplistic message opposing "the good" and "the evil" that media obliging and intimidated propagated. They said to us that to wonder why such terrible events had occurred brought closer treason dangerously. There was no debate. There was by definition neither moral question, nor political question. The only possible answer was to be the war out of the borders and repression inside.

On our behalf, the administration of Mr. bush, extremely of the quasi unanimity of the American Congress, attacked not only Afghanistan but also assumed the right, like with its allies, to impose the military force in any place and constantly. The brutal repercussions were felt some the Philippines in Palestine, where the tanks and the bulldozers left a terrible wake of died and destruction. The government now prepares to carry out an all-out war against Iraq, country which does not have a bond with the horrors of September 11, 2001. Which kind of world will occur if the government of the United States has white chart to send commandos, assassins and bombs where that he wants it?

On our behalf, in the United States, the government created two classes of citizens: those with which one makes the promise of essential rights and those who seem from now on not to have any right. The government challenged more than one thousand of immigrants and held with the secrecy indefinitely. Hundreds of them were off-set and of the hundreds of others always languish themselves in prison. This situation points out clearly the concentration camps built during the Second World war for the Japanese-Americans. For the first time for several decades, the procedures of immigration have put certain nationalities at the index to make them undergo an inequitable treatment.

On our behalf, the government makes weigh on our company a veil of repression. The spokesman of the President warns people "to pay attention so that they say". Dissenting artists, intellectuals and professors see their deformed opinions, attacked and censured. So-called "Patriot Act", like a whole batch of measures similar taken to the level of the State, grants to the police force vast capacities of excavation and seizure under the theoretical control of secret procedures carried out in secret courts.

On our behalf, the executive power systematically usurped the roles and functions of the other branches of the government.
