Ember Demonstrations: Resistance against the curfew in Liège, Belgium

Since November, in Liège, Belgium, several nocturnal demonstrations have expressed determination to resist repressive measures, presented by the state as sanitary measures. The curfew was particularly targeted, as a symbol of an authoritarian policy preventing the construction of autonomous solidarity in the face of the virus. In the continuity of the work done by the Popular Solidarity Brigades, but also in the continuation of the riots that crossed Italy and, more recently, the Netherlands, we return to these “igneous demonstrations” with those who initiated them.

Curfew in France – Whatever it takes: Produce

France. By announcing a #Curfew (#CouvreFeu) that starts at 6:00 pm throughout the territory, the #LREM government is once again demonstrating its preference for an authoritarian management of the current health crisis. Rather than rethinking social organization to make it more protective, we are prevented from seeing each other, from going out, from getting fresh air. In order to maintain the profit rates of a deadly capitalism, a police discipline is imposed on us that is rooted in both our colonial and war history.

#Paris – Trial of a “Black Vest”: Outrage and Truth

On Tuesday, January 28, 2020, the trial of a “Black Vest” activist was held in the 28th criminal chamber of the Paris Court of Justice. In a small room on the 6th floor in the glass building, a particularly boring, if not life-threatening, rehearsal took place. This room is that of the French justice system, that of proceedings without evidence, except for the statements of police officers and the absence of investigation by the Public Prosecutor’s Office. A report.

#France: Autonomy and mass movement

The movement against the French government’s plans to “reform” the pension system continues over the Christmas holidays. On Christmas Eve, for example, there was only one train from Berlin to Paris due to the work stoppages. Within the antagonistic and radical parts of the movement, starting from the experiences of the social protests and movements of the last few years and taking into account the changes that the Gilets Jaunes movement has introduced into the forms of social conflictuality, the character and the way forward in the current phase of the struggle is being discussed. The text ‘Autonomy and Mass Movement’ is a product of these discussions.
