 :: Resistance against the OSCE Conference in Basel! ::
 Themen | Anti-Kapitalismus/Globalisierung 20-11-2014 23:33
AutorIn : OSZE angreifen
OSZE anreifen On 4th and 5th December this year the ministerial council of the OSCE (Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe) is meeting at the exhibition square Basel. Around 1,200 delegates from 57 states are expected to come, including some dozen foreign ministers. This mega-happening will be protected by gigantic security forces: Around 1000 members of the police force, units of the border guard as well as 5000 army members will control the isolated «red zone» where the conference will be held. Undesirable people, for example the residents of the nearby areas are not part of this scenario. The city government want to present Basel as a smooth and international location for the powerful and rich.

The OSCE as a tool for imperialists

The OSCE has worked hard on the image of an organisation for security and peace. This is a deliberate deception. The year of the Swiss presidency of the OSCE is under the slogan «creating a security community for the benefit of everyone». Just a short look at the list of the OSCE states reveals whose security it is and what peace it is meant to be: The biggest arms exporter and warmongers in the world gather in the OSCE to talk about peace and disarmament. The OSCE is also engaged in the so-called «Fight against terrorism». We can see how this «fight» looks like in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and the military co-operation with Israel.
The OSCE is mainly a platform and instrument of the competing ruling classes to enforce their own security issues and economic politics. In view of the global balance of power it is clear that the representatives of the richest and most aggressive states (USA, Germany, France etc.) have the most influence.
The OSCE and neoliberalism

The character of the OSCE is revealed for example by their engagement in the border security agency Frontex. With surveillance systems, drones and a huge military contingent the Frontex has been trying to seal off Europe against unwanted (say: not profitable) migration for years. Thus they are accepting and approving the death of thousands of refugees per year, a sad reality which hardly gets noticed.
The OSCE wants to support the «climate for investments» of the participating states. Thereby they are pleading for an out-and-out neoliberal policy since in the capitalist logic the climate for investments can only be boosted by weakening the labor rights, by cutting wages and by privatisation. Currently it is mainly the workers in the peripheral Europe who are hit by the consequences of this policy.
Attack OSCE!

The resistance against the OSCE connects the fight against the local cleaning and displacement in the city of Basel with the international fight against the ruling class and their imperialistic projects whose exponents meet here once more. But the resistance can’t stop with the OSCE, it’s only a part of the machinery to tighten the status quo. To win the fight for a better world for all people it is necessary to abolish capitalism as a whole.

Abolish capitalism – for the social revolution!
