In 2005, some suburbs explode with rage and jeopardise the Order. More than a year ago, it’s Vincennes Detention Centre, the biggest prison for migrants in France that goes up in smoke, ignited by the rage of life with no life. Since several years, the sabotages and attacks increase against imprisonment collaborators (Bouygues, Eiffage, IBIS, Air France, ADECCO, the Red-Cross and other vultures who participate to the deportation machine). More recently, dozen of bank ATMs (that were responsible for sans-papiers arrests, organizing ambushes with cops to their unwanted clients: La Poste, BNP, LCL, CIC, Société Générale) were burnt, smashed, sabotaged.
Ten people are accused of the Vincennes centre arson, and have been found guilty, facing several years of prison.
On February 15th, four people, among those called by the cops “anarcho-autonomes”, are arrested by the Anti-Terrorist Section of the Criminal Brigade, and accused of having participated in a wave of solidarity against Detention Centres and their shit Brave New World. It’s still the State showing its nasty face, hoping to see us submit to the bloody pacification it imposes us, with cops, prison, torture, murders, judges, borders, guards and nice tidy smiles.
In fact, through repression, the State wishes to slow down the diffusion of permanent attacks that badly shake it. It wishes to attribute to some dreamed up social groups (like ‘ultra-gauche’ ones, the ’suburban youth’, the ‘gangs’, the ’saboteur’, and so on…) some acts, already spread though in the whole society, in order to confine them, aware that the spreading of these practices would be fatal to it.
But there’s nothing to cry over. Because in this social war with no truce, we will not turn the other cheek!
Let’s make sure the revolt uproar will beat down on this shitty world![Leaflet found in some streets of Paris, March 2010]
