First of all, what is the meaning of the word "people" ?

People canbe used with the mean of "population" (which is our case when we sometimes use it) or it can be use with the nationalist sense, that of a closed community, historically built on a territory which belongs to it, with its past and its future, a community which determines to such a point the individual that the latter can only act and react specifically to this community and its tradition ? The confusion between the two is pernicious. Because for an anarchist, to escape the determination induced by the place / tradition where he was born, where he lives, is at the very base of his personal revolution; and this revolution is possible only because, contrary to obscurantist ideologies, the "French", "Gaulish", "Catalan", "Parisian" or "Native American" peoples are sociological constructs (which appear and disappear in time) and have no other reality.


Finally, the notion of "original" (native) is purely ridiculous. Is it necessary to remember that there is only one human specie (and not races!) And that the human specie has one and the same single common origin. Nobody is more "original" - or native - than another ! No pseudo-race has any right over another, neither because of its supposed place of birth (as "race", "people"), nor of its cultural beliefs (or of its tradition, mission , its" civilization "...), nor of its technological development. If it is necessary to support the fight of the populations of Amazonia, it is not for their "habits and customs / traditions " and even less their "origins" On the exact opposite, we support them because, their autonomous struggle against the economical exploitation (of which the destruction of the planet is a part) and against the state's oppression is universal and an example for all of humanity
