A few words concerning the responsibility claim for the execution of Habibi.

Because much has already been said and even more will be said, one more text full of praises or aphorisms would have nothing to add and offer.

This is why, because of the recent incidents, here will be written only what is deemed necessary about the before, the now and the after of a situation that does not only concern the square and the people there but also all of us. Publicly and openly, without exposing or slandering individuals and projects. And certainly not with great ease or arrogance as is customary.

Rushing toward the spot, he made out the figure of a young man on bent knees, with his abdomen gashed open and his bowels spilling out. The police identified the victim as a Frenchman named Martial Bourdin, with ties to a well-known anarchist club. Clearly, they concluded, he’d been on his way to bomb the Greenwich Observatory. It was a highly symbolic target: the Prime Meridian, the longitudinal center of the world.

Most days, Henry Clay Frick liked to take a late lunch with friends at the Duquesne Club, just a short distance from his Fifth Avenue office at the Chronicle-Telegraph building. He’d just returned to his desk on Saturday, July 23 1892, when anarchist Alexander Berkman, wearing a brand new black suit, pushed the door open.
