Translated editorial from Le Monde

Tied up for seven years in the twists and turns of an incoherent investigation, the Tarnac affair risks becoming a policing fiasco and a political farce. Which has only made it all the more instructive.

Since November 2008, eight people who were living in the village of Tarnac in Corrèze have stood accused of “participation in a criminal association for the purpose of planning a terrorist act”. Members of the anarchist and autonomous movements (1) and authors of “The Coming Insurrection”, a radical text published in 2007, several of them are suspects in the sabotage of five high-speed rail lines in the fall of 2008 where steel rods were hung from power lines. Their leader, Julien Coupat, was held in custody for six months before being released.
