The 8th wanted person arrested in Paris

Serial ATM‘ers case

On February 15th, at 6am in the morning, 7 people were place in custody and had their homes searched, in the so called serial-ATMers case . The anti-terrorism section followed that case and tried to interrogate the people.

Indeed, lots of ATM and banks have been sabotaged and attacked, in solidarity with the undocumented people of the Vincennes Detention Center, who, in 2008, have put fire at their prison. Several prisoners had a trial for that fact and were condamned to several months of prison.

Around that trial and the daily struggle with undocummented people, not only banks have been attacked. Several „wild marchs“ (illegal demonstrations) went on, with people yelling, breaking offices, leaving posters all around, and occupying collaborating agencies, as Air France.

A 8th person was wanted since February. On May 27th this person has been arrested went coming to support a squat eviction in the 13th district of Paris ( see here Indymedia Paris).
Taken to the 26 rue des Orfèvres (anti-terrorist torture office), he stayed for 23 hours, and has been questionned about the damages, and is accused of having stuck a poster on a bank during a wild and illegal march.

He refused to say and sign anything, and also refused to give his DNA.
In France, you can refuse (when you know it…), but then you have a trial. MOst of the time, cops don‘t tell you it’s allowed to refuse.
They took his belt and hat, obvisouly to have his DNA.
A USB stick, a mobile, keys and others he had in his bag have also been taken, and surely analysed by the Anti-terrorist group of Loriot.

He has been released without facing the well known Rosso judge, and may be called later.

Italy: a GPS found under the truck of the Nunatak revue member

May 17, under the van of an editor of Nunatak, we found a finde abbiamo trovato un bel transmitter with a SIM Vodaphone chip and 4 torch batteries, of 3,6 volts each, in series. All placed with a magnet behind a back wheel of the vehicle. This time, just not to boast, it should be said that it didn´t take much to notice that „someone“ had placed a device to spy on our movements. Moreover, for some time now, unfortunately, it is as well to take into consideration forms of technological control that is increasingly invasive and capillary. In fact, among all the manoeuvres and repressive attacks that the State puts into effect against those who still have the courage to raise their heads, this is just the latest sign that the review Nunatak has become object of attention of who knows which Procurator or investigative body. Monitoring, home visits and a whole series of other more or less concealed pressures have been gravitating for some time around the review and whoever collaborates with it with the intention of burning the earth around it and preparing an eventual repressive intervention in the near future. It seems pointless to us to stree once again that their „attention“ will not make us take one step back from our projects, but we can only admit that, for as long as uniforms and authority are concerned about our presence , of our way of thinking and acting, we have confirmation that we are moving in the right direction.

Media propaganda: french people in Greece

    As usual, after or before a trial or the vote of a new law, the main press publishes analysis about the „anarcho-autonomes“ new theory. They also talk about „anarchists“ or „UltraLeft“, trying to define people with acts and books.
    This new definition of the revoltees mainly appeared after the first arrests under anti-terrorism accusation, in January 2008 ( see HERE).

And now, for the April 28th call in solidariy with the greek prisonner Giannis Dimitrakis, France info* published its ideas. We learn some „french anarchists“ travel in Greece to learn how to fight ( there, their Ultraleft homologous teach them the urban guerilla methods). And then we learn with astonishment that the DCRI (secret police for information and action) is now interested in these people. The excuse, of course, is the last demonstration in Poitiers**, in October. More than 300 people walked the streets by surprise, all full masked and disguised, using the excuse of a Carnabal at the same moment. That demonstration was an answer to a prisonners transfert to the new prison of Vivonne. The other excuse for this new watch, are the last attacks at ATM’s and banks, „these last months“. And press to add: „since then, police made out some UltraLeft activists (sic) often stay in Athens. During the house-search, they found some documents showing they stood in Greece“. Then we are offered a nice historical lesson about Exharchia, and december 2008 revolt. Of course, internet is one more time introduced as a plateform to spread violence: calls for the liberation of the 70 people arrested at the Exharchia razzia, and in solidarity with Giannis Dimitrakis. The article ends with a parallel on Tarnac case, explaining that durnig the first investigations, police didn‘t understand why the main suspect (Julien Coupat) has travelled in Thessalonique.
