Given the number of ill-judged and banal commentaries there have been from both the left and the bourgeois media, I have refrained from commenting upon the tragic events in Toulouse. It is especially important to weigh our words carefully at this time, given the vulnerable position that minority groups find themselves in. A considered response will be posted in due course. For now, this (below) seems to me to be the only proper response (from Tendance Coatsey):
Sadness at Toulouse.
Desperate sadness is all I would comment about the murders and stand-off in Toulouse.
Last night one of my closest comrades was so moved by the events that he had to come round to mine and speak about it.
Another phoned me to talk about it.
It is simply enormously distressing.
