The different factions of the Ivorian big bourgeoisie, in their struggle for power, are attempting to use the masses with calls for adventurist action.
On December 16, 2010, Ouatara followers carried out several actions to free television state of siege imposed by the government, have called their activists (which is always asked to used as the only weapon of protest ballot) to perform operations of an insurgency. Despite the action of some groups of demonstrators, the failure was total, as we have been able to verify. For its part, the Gbagbo camp tries once again to use the masses, and most likely is that leads to the slaughter.
Recall that the “young patriots” who support Gbagbo has called for a great concentration in Republic Square Wednesday, December 29. But, suddenly, they decided to cancel this action indefinitely on the pretext of “laissez-faire diplomacy,” because three Heads of State ECOWAS (Economic Community of West African States, NDT) have come to Abiyan to meet with Laurent Gbagbo and Alassane Ouatara.
Curiously, when there is a of these meetings for January 3, 2011, the “young patriots” decided to leave the Hotel Golf, “their hands “(without weapons), quoted in the hotel is entrenched Ouattara and his government, protected by thousands of armed UN peacekeepers dell’ONUCI. The goal is to use young people as human shields, though not possess no preparation for such actions. These young people will find themselves caught between two fires, the of the soldiers who protect the property and that of the soldiers who laid siege to the building.
Why want to use young people for action which should be for the national army? One reason for this behavior is that the foreign troops stationed in Ivory Coast (UN forces, troops French) are there at the request of Laurent Gbabgo that he expected to profit at the crucial moment of these forces, which he hoped in vain. And so, in a timely manner, without conviction, now calls for the withdrawal of these forces, just when they have not the Ivory Coast. Gbabgo has a strange way to pursue his “patriotic or anti-imperialist struggle.”
The National Army does not trust Gbabgo, which uses many mercenaries from Liberia and Angola. Since these mercenaries can not appear it openly in front of Hotel Golf, sends cannon fodder, a role that is usually used Gbabgo in respect of the masses ivoriensi.
The PCRCI considers that the main points of struggle are currently as follows:
– Denouncing the threat of foreign military intervention, particularly ECOMOG (the troops Economic Community of West African States, NDT) and firmly opposed the supporters of reactionary war.
– Continue the fight so that they respect the popular will expressed at the polls on November 28, and avert the danger of a reactionary civil war.
The PCRCI calls the people, especially youth, not to get involved with the words
Order adventurist and not taken part in the Golf Hotel, whose sole aim is to use
the outrage that will result in bloodshed.
This sacrifice is not worth the effort if the goal is to maintain Laurent Gbabgo to power and his military-civilian regime of the fascist type.
