During a protest against the election circus in Strassbourg, activists were attacked by fascists on Sunday. In Nantes, France 15 fascists attacked 2 protesters. Both are in serious condition (images).

In Massy people are protesting for 3 days now. The protests started after 17 year old Curtis drove into a bus while he was chased by cops. There are some reports that a police car was involved in the accident. In France many youths immediately flee when cops try to stop them. The reason for this is the daily police brutality against people, especially in the suburbs of the big cities. Clashes broke out on Friday night and continued on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

    “Its time to revolt!”

    various groups have been chanting that for decades, maybe millennia.

    now the scene is littered w/ such groups in the streets, Black Lives Matter, Anti Fascists, Trumpites, etc.

    There were major revolts in 1968, but how much in lasting positive results came from them?

    Looking back its said ’68 was a mostly spontaneous outburst that showed youth power and that was good,

    but it lacked strategy, and hence much in the way of lasting results.

    we should learn from that.

    i dont see whats to be gained by street fighting;

    as we’v seen, sometimes thts fatal.
