Liberté? Egalité? Fraternité? –  Groupe Antifasciste Lyon et Environs (GALE) banned [France]

Lyon. France. “We must rely on the state to contend with fascists!” liberals will tell you. “To fight bigotry and fascism, we have to give the authorities the legal powers to combat them for us!” they say. So what happens when a state has the legal authority to decide whether a political group has the right to exist in society? Who will the state wield that power against?

Defend La Gare prevent the construction of the Castor route! [France]

La Gare de Luméville. France. In 2004, the site of the old train station of Luméville was bought by anti-nuclear activists. La gare is part of the future railroad line for nuclear waste transports to the planned final repository CIGÉO near Bure. In the last 18 years, the project has been run by very different groups and collectives, but has tended to stand all in all for the more radical-ecological-anti-capitalist part of the anti-nuclear movement.

The Invisible Committee: Communiqué N°0

The political and moral significance of thinking comes out only in those rare moments in history when “Things fall apart; the center cannot hold / Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,” when “The best lack all conviction, while the worst / Are full of passionate intensity.” At these moments, thinking ceases to be a marginal affair in political matters. When everybody is swept away unthinkingly by what everybody else does and believes in, those who think are drawn out of hiding because their refusal to join is conspicuous and thereby becomes a kind of action.

Hannah Arendt, “Thinking and Moral Considerations”

Channel Charades – On the Franco-British border: Everyone’s at sea

The widely publicised shipwreck off the coast of Calais on 24 November, which left 27 dead, drew a few crocodile tears from the sharks that govern France and England. A show of hypocrisy that does not hide the truth: the deadly closure of the increasingly militarised maritime border of the Channel are the first responsible.

Kidnapped first by the Spanish state and then by the French state, he has already spent 25 years in prison and although he should have been free since last December 11, the prosecutor of Mont de Marsan who follows his case, emissary of the state’s revenge, continues to keep him behind bars.

Pertuis: The ZAP once again under attack, we will not surrender [France]

Pertuis. France. This morning Roger Pellenc carried out his threats at the ZAP (Zone à patates), where we are occupying several houses to fight against a project to extend a commercial zone and the capitalist world that engenders it. A shovel escorted by six municipal policemen came to destroy the gate of the common house as well as the fence and the hedge along the street and seriously damaged the reception hut that we had built in the last few days. All this under the hilarious look of the municipal police.
