Molotovs for holidays

Monday 10th, Villiers-le-bel and val-d‘Oise: schools and high-schools are blocked after a supiscious speech of Nicolas Sarkozy

So they learnt the President would like to suppress the summer vacations. No needs to confirm the information: it wouldn‘t be a big deal for that president to take this kind of decisions. The text message reached all the mobiles phones, all the ears.
Friends and and sisters started to block the entrance of the schools: Léon-Blum at first, and then Bezons, Louvres, and Goussainville and the Val-d‘Oise department.
Several garbages have been put on fire, and several Molotov cocktails thrown against some lost pigs, called to reestablish the Republican Order. Indeed, Luc Chatel, the re-education Minister proposed to organized the vacations geographically, and to plan again the school timetable. The managers of those school had to quickly spread the idea that these news were false, to calm down the youth.
It’s like cutting the promenade of a life-sentenced. Twelve years in school, and no holidays? our holidays? you‘ll see…

A laser-pen injured an officer

On Saturday night, a boy has been arrested in Toulouse for using a laserpen against a policeman.
Indeed, due to police, this laser was pointed at the officer’s eyes. The officer has been taken to hospital, and would be treated during 15 days.

Obviously, it would be a laser-pen as used in the science-camps to show the stars, or used by the lecturers and other managers to point at their bright ideas.
Due to press, this pen was confirmed belonging to class III ( on IV), and would reach 5, 8 or 15 km distance.

Free Villiers-le-Bel prisoners!

Solidarity Call

It’s not how it’s gonna happen: Why we must free the Villiers-Le-Bel Four

    A communique from the Villiers-le-Bel support committee regarding the upcoming trial, on charges of „police homicide attempt“ The next 21st of June, it won‘t be summer time, it won‘t be the Fête de la Musique (1); it will be the start of the trial of our friends, of our brothers. Maka and three others from Villiers-le-Bel will have to face the accusation of having shot at the police during the riots of november 2007.

The scenario is already set: after the police media operation of february 2008 – 1500 cops with guns in town and hordes of journalists on their behalf, after the „exemplary punishment“ demanded by Sarkozy, after the disproportionate sentencing of the rioters last spring (three years of prison for throwing rocks), it will be the trial of the „suburban cop-killer“, meant to reconcile the government with the extreme-right voters and all the freaked out people this country can count. Of course, it will be overlooked that the only dead people were two kids: Lakhamy and Moushin, killed in a strange „accident“ with a police car. We‘ll pretend to forget that the spokesman of the ministry of the interior didn‘t wait more than a few minutes to declare that the cops had nothing to do with their death. Of course, we‘ll deny the fact that it was the surge of hundreds of cops flooding in the neighborhood that launched the riot.
[Who writes the history again?]

Since someone „guilty“ is needed to pretend-justify the vengeance of the State, there has to be a trial, an exemplary trial. In the absence of any evidence, it will be a trial of testimony, it will be the voice of cops and anonymous paid finks against the voice of the „youth“ in front of a jury of their peers.
Until the death of Lakhamy and Moushin, Villiers-le-Bel was a quiet little town of the Val-d‘Oise. The train station, the Cerisaie, the ZAC, the PLM, the Carreaux, the Burteaux…(2) Since the riots, Villiers isn‘t a town any longer, it is a symbol, a stake), a fantasy. The power projects on it all its Law and Order angsts and most of all its fear that the police occupation of the neighborhoods will be met by organized riots; that the people that are being aimed at with flashball (3) for ten years end up putting cops in their sight. Every evening of the year, the boulevards from Villiers look like a ballet made of all the various police corps--UTEQ, gardes mobiles, CRS, Bac, etc. (4) –, in the meantime, they prepare the inauguration of the new police station of 360 men. It is an experiment in the level of police harrassment and provocation that a neighborhood can handle without exploding. The feeling here is not to live in the margin of society but in the laboratory of its future. If there is, in the coming future a risk of uprising, what is certain is that it is in Villiers-le-Bel that the power trains itself to manage it.
Anyone who takes a walk here after 5 PM understands – watching the „robocops“ patroling Gaza style – that the State doesn‘t try to reestablish order where disorder would reign, but to provoke disorder at the right time to be seen as the one who brings back order when elections come.
In reality, this society has become so incapable of saying positively what it is or what it wants that it only manages to define itself againts its suburbs. That’s why the power wants this trial to be the trial of the „cop killers‘“: to bind around it a society in iniquity. Our friends don‘t have to pay for this iniquity, nor for the salvation of those in power. In reality, this trial is not meant to establish responsibilities for precise acts, it is the trial of an event in its entirety, and foremost the trial of a whole historical moment. An historical moment that opens up with the death of Zyed and Bouna and the 2005 riots, and that the power would like to stifle with a big spectacle trial.
The problem is that the rage and revolt that were expressed there won‘t let themselves being stifled. Another problem is those explosions have resonated and still resonate in many other hearts than those of the so-called „suburban youth“. And yet another problem is that this new operation of isolation is maybe about to completely fail. Some walls fell, some hands that were hesitantly looking, found each other.
We‘re calling for all those who cannot bear the occupation of our lives by the police anymore. We‘ll do everything we can so that this trial doesn‘t become another occasion to justify this occupation by the disorder it produces.
We refuse to let our brothers pay for the angst of those in power.
They‘ve already served two years in prison.
We refuse to allow dozens of years of prison to be distributed on the basis of anonymous testimony paid by the police.
We refuse the scenario of the government. We have three months to tear it down.

A month of solidarity will happen from the 20th of May to the 15th of June 2010 that will end up with a demonstration a few days before the trial.
More will be announced soon.
Get in touch with us. Organize solidarity events, debates, actions.
