Terrorismo alimentario no máxico mundo de Disney

Achegamos un artigo que fala da represión que sufren en Estados Unidos aquelas persoas que loitan e traballan por xerar alternativas ás inxustizas do sistema capitalista, neste caso os que están a sufrir os hostigamentos son as persoas do colectivo Food Not Bombs:

Cuando piensa en “terrorismo alimentario,” ¿qué es lo que se imagina? ¿Complots diabólicos para contaminar productos en las góndolas de los supermercados? Si usted fuera Buddy Dyer, el alcalde de Orlando, Florida, podría haberse imaginado a un grupo que sirve alimentos a personas sin hogar en uno de los parques de la ciudad. Por estos días se está mencionando mucho al alcalde Dyer precisamente por que consideró que los activistas del colectivo Food Not Bombs de Orlando son “terroristas alimentarios.” En las últimas semanas, al menos veintiún personas fueron arrestadas en Orlando, la ciudad de Disney World, por servir gratuitamente comida en un parque.

Food Not Bombs, o como se le llama en español “Comida, no bombas”, es una organización internacional de base que lucha contra el hambre. Como su nombre lo indica, es un movimiento que se opone a la guerra. En su página de internet dice: “Food Not Bombs comparte gratuitamente alimentos veganos y vegetarianos con personas que padecen hambre en más de mil ciudades alrededor del mundo como forma de manifestarse contra la guerra, la pobreza y la destrucción del medio ambiente. Habiendo más de mil millones de personas que pasan hambre cada día, ¿cómo es posible que gastemos más dólares en la guerra?” Los lunes a la mañana y los miércoles a la noche, el colectivo de Orlando coloca una mesa en el parque Lake Eola Park de esa ciudad y sirve allí la comida que prepara.

Desde hace un tiempo, la policía de Orlando viene arrestando a quienes sirven los alimentos. Hace poco, por ejemplo, arrestó a Benjamin Markeson, que estaba perplejo cuando me dijo: “Creemos que terrorismo es arrestar gente por intentar compartir comida con las personas pobres y hambrientas de la comunidad y satisfacer así una necesidad de la propia comunidad. Lo único que hacemos es venir al parque y servir comida a personas pobres que tienen hambre. No sé cómo pueden calificar a eso de terrorismo.”

El abogado Shayan Elahi tampoco lo sabe. Como representante del colectivo Food not Bombs de Orlando ante la justicia, presentó una petición para obtener una medida cautelar contra las acciones llevadas a cabo por la municipalidad ante el juzgado del noveno distrito judicial de Florida, presidido por el magistrado Belvin Perry Jr. El juez Perry apareció en las noticias últimamente como el sensato juez que entiende en el juicio por asesinato contra Casey Anthony, que se lleva a cabo actualmente en Orlando. Mientras que las cadenas de cable realizan una cobertura completa de lo que sucede en el juzgado, Elahi espera que Perry tenga tiempo para ocuparse en persona del caso.

En el centro de la cuestión se encuentra una ordenanza municipal, la ordenanza de “Alimentación a grandes grupos,” que exige la solicitud de un permiso a los grupos que deseen servir alimentos, aunque sea en forma gratuita, a grupos de veinticinco personas o más. Todo grupo puede gestionar dichos permisos sólo dos veces por año. Food Not Bombs Orlando ya utilizó las dos autorizaciones que recibió para este año.

La Asociación por los Derechos Civiles de Florida ha solicitado al Alcalde Dyer que ofrezca una disculpa por calificar al grupo Food Not Bombs de “terrorista”. El acto delictivo no debería ser ofrecer comida a más de veinticinco personas, sino que más de veinticinco personas necesiten alimentos.

El Dr. Elahi vincula estas medidas represivas al proceso de gentrificación que está planificado para el centro de Orlando: “El alcalde creó el Consejo de Desarrollo del centro de Orlando y su objetivo general es básicamente expulsar a todos aquellos que, según ellos son ‘los otros’ y no se adecuan a su idea de quién debería estar en el centro. Y estamos tratando de mostrarle al alcalde que los tiempos han cambiado, que estamos en un momento en el que todo el mundo sufre y que cada vez más personas de las que vienen cuando servimos alimentos de Food Not Bombs son trabajadores pobres.”

Una resolución aprobada la semana pasada por la Conferencia de Alcaldes de Estados Unidos expresa cabalmente el mensaje principal de Food Not Bombs. En la resolución, los alcaldes exhortan al gobierno a poner fin a las guerras en Afganistán y en Irak cuanto antes sea estratégicamente posible, y destinar el dinero a satisfacer las necesidades vitales que tenemos aquí, en Estados Unidos.

La región central de Florida se ha visto duramente golpeada por la recesión y figura entre los lugares con más altos índices de ejecuciones hipotecarias y quiebras del país. La Organización de la Naciones Unidas para la Agricultura y la Alimentación recientemente advirtió que se prevé que los precios de los alimentos se mantengan elevados durante lo que resta del año. La misma proyección se hace para los próximos. A principios de este año, los precios de los alimentos alcanzaron los niveles observados durante la crisis alimentaria de 2007 y 2008, que hizo estallar disturbios en varios países pobres del mundo. En Grecia, las masivas manifestaciones de protesta y la huelga general contra las medidas de austeridad han paralizado Atenas.

Una de las canciones más famosas de Disney, que no queda muy lejos de Lake Eola Park, se llama “Muy pequeño el mundo es” y dice así: “Compartimos tanto, que es hora de darnos cuenta, de que después de todo, el mundo es muy pequeño.” Hagamos que la fantasía se convierta en realidad. Compartir alimentos no debe ser un delito.

  1. Fai tempo: Que o capitalismo fundado por Adam Smith Rompeu as suas propias reglas. E convertiuse,na cova de Alibabá e os corenta ladróns. Multiplicado polas infinitas formas de aplastar aos máis fébles.Eu como di a canción. Beberedes na miña copa comeredes na miña mesa,pero nunca entederedes a miña guitarra!.E seguirei dicindo, que sodes uns depredadores da raza humana. E algún día veremos unha terra que poña Liberdade.
