Emmanuel Macron's Anti-Terror Law Is a Throwback to the Bad Days of Colonialism

Quote
The new law grants special powers, lifted from the state of emergency, to prefects--local representatives of the French interior ministry--to conduct widespread surveillance and counterterrorism measures, often with limited judicial oversight. These powers include the ability to shut down mosques, raid private property, conduct warrantless stop-and-frisk operations, and restrict movement of individuals deemed potential national security threats with electronic surveillance tags. When the new law takes effect on Wednesday, France will become the only country in Western Europe to establish de facto permanent state of emergency powers.

Civil rights activists and human rights groups fear the law will inevitably unleash violent and discriminatory repercussions against France's Muslim, Arab, and African populations--a particularly problematic consequence for a country that has struggled to break from its dark colonial history. In fact, there is a direct historical connection between the state of emergency powers and French colonialism: The legislation authorizing state of emergency orders was created in April 1955 to halt the Algerian insurrection at the height of the country's war for independence. According to Rim-Sarah Alouane of the University Toulouse-Capitole, the order empowered paratroopers in Algeria to raid homes, restaurants, and bars to arrest anyone deemed a threat to the French occupation. Since 1955, the state of emergency has been ordered six times: in 1958, 1961, 1988, 2005, and finally in 2015.

As a candidate, Macron positioned himself as a progressive on these issues, referring to France's colonial past as a "crime against humanity." This stood in stark contrast to opponent Marine Le Pen's hardline nationalist views on Islam and Muslim immigration. But Macron's rhetorical condemnations of France's past sins are no solace to French Muslims watching his relentless push to make the state of emergency powers permanent.

Le Pen's policies seem to have really won the election.

Anyone have a link with more information? The claim that she is an asylum seeker seems to conflict with the opening "if you are not in danger". The only place I can see talking any further about it is freaking gatewaypundit - even the site for Middle East Eye itself doesn't have anything about it.

And yeah, wtf is with him being such a callous asshole directly in front of cameras and microphones?

i mean, le pen had a lot of support. if he's wooing anyone it's probably her voters. that's just smart, pragmatic, moderate policy from the ideology of the adults in the room.

Macron was also lecturing someone in Burkina for daring to question the level of investment in education versus troops there.

Nazis are always worse but macron is extremely bad himself.

Macron has made clear he wouldn't accept economic migrants in France, wants those who don't qualify for asylum expelled and doesn't want them even trying to come to France.

The French president has been rolling out a multi-pronged approach that stretches to Africa, with points set up in Chad and Niger to pre-select those certain of gaining asylum -- and weed out potential economic migrants.

At home, Interior Minister Gerard Collomb has ordered prefects, regional representatives of the state, to crack down on illegal immigration, 'act quickly' to expel those who fail to gain asylum and report results within weeks, according to a November order cited by the newspaper Le Monde.

A newer set of orders in December rang alarm bells. Collomb told regional authorities to set up 'mobile teams' to run checks in emergency housing to ascertain the status of migrants. Emergency shelters are considered bedrocks of the French tradition of open arms to those in need and have long been considered untouchable, even by security authorities.

The accent on security in dealing with immigration has appalled even some who support the centrist Macron.
