Paris, France – A spark

In the night between 21st and 22nd September we set fire to a diplomat’s car in rue Roger Bacon, Paris. The reasons for this action seem clear to us: the path to freedom passes through the struggle against States and their servants. This little fire won’t change the world, some might say.
