Rebellion is Contagious â€” The Uprising in France
Monday, Nov. 7th, 2005â€”For eleven nights in a row, beginning on October 27th, Paris has burned in a rebellion of the poor against the police and the rich. It started in the Clichy-sous-Bois neighborhood after two young men of African backgrounds fled from the police and were electrocuted to death after climbing into a power substation.
<table><tr><td><em>This report was sent to me by Rich of the organic collective. He'll be returning from Chiapas in a few weeks and we will be organizing a movie night and 3 reports from Chiapas. </em>
<table><tr><td>On the morning of Saturday, October 29, the armed, racist, anti-immigrant vigilantes of the Minuteman Project held a rally on the steps of the state capitol in Sacramento. They were there to cap off their month-long failure of a patrol along the border and to gather signatures for the California Border Police initiative. The initiative would create 2,000-3,000 paid positions for Minutemen in kop's clothing to harass immigrant workers statewide.<br><br>
<table><tr><td>PARIS, Nov. 2 -- Clashes between angry youths and French police spread to at least six Paris suburbs overnight, with police firing tear gas and rubber-coated bullets at street fighters who lobbed Molotov cocktails and burned cars and trash bins.<br><br>
