The First and Last Word on a Rotten Civilisation

Fierce muslim men made headlines around the world when they massacred around one hundred people in France this week. Messages of sympathy have poured in from as far afield as the official opposition party of Zimbabwe, who one would think are hardly in a position to pity anybody. French men made no headlines when they willingly participated in a coalition that massacred around one million people in Iraq between 2003 and 2006. Be that as it may, if I can sympathise with those who express passionate contempt for this civilisation, a despicable 'old bitch gone in the teeth' deserving nothing more than disgust, I must admit that the Moorish heathens of the moment want nothing more than another variant of the same thing. What we really need is to put old hag out of its misery altogether.

We are expressing our sadness and condolences for the victims of the Paris attacks.

These abhorrent, premeditated killings, are revulsing us. Just as those of Ankara, in their case directed directed against an opposition protest in Turkey, or those of Suruç, in June, that has seen the death of youngsters on their way to Kobanê.

Communiqué from the assembly of the anti-airport movement (9/17)
Why we are opposed to the expropriation judge coming to the zad on tuesday the 22nd

The government declared they no longer want to wait for the legal appeals (related to the airport project) to finish, which means they are breaking the engagements made in 2012 and in 2014.

They chose to begin by putting pressure back on people renting on the zad, and sending the expropriation judge to their houses.

From Lucioles

This text on the wave of sans-papiers occupations in Paris tells important lessons for those involved in migrant struggles on the strategies used by liberal democratic states to contain them. If we anticipate these moves, how can we pre-empt them? And what strategic targets are based near you?

Original French text in Lucioles #23 with the title ‘Against states and their borders: revolution’; roughly translated by Rabble.

The judge assigned to the counter-terrorism hearing did not go along with the prosecution's request to continue applying the designation of “terrorist organisation”, an aggravating factor, to three activists.

"They kill us for their profit - death to the Sivens dam"

Book review: Sivens sans retenue: Feuilles d’automne 2014

Of all the many projects opposed by protesters in France in recent years, the small dam planned for the rural southern valley at Sivens was hardly the most important.

But it quickly became a milestone battle in the growing struggle against industrial capitalism, thanks to the determination of the participants and the violence of the state’s repression.

On October 26 2014, student Rémi Fraisse was killed by a sound grenade fired straight at him, at point blank range, by military-style gendarmes.
