Lille : We’ll answer back each time we are attacked

On the night of Saturday, June 18, the Bagelstein of Old Lille was suddenly redecorated with multicoloured paint and its lock was sabotaged echoing the Rennes demo and the Nantes action that took place the same day.

 IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE IMPRISONED OF BAGELSTEIN IN RENNES

 In Rennes May 26, 4 people get jail after an altercation with the manager of the fast-food “le Bagelstein”.

 Following accusations by feminists of the “deco” of the fast food chain with serious sexist and homophobic propos affixed to the walls and restaurant accessories, four students come to see this “decoration” for themselves, that goes as far as to call to rape. After some of the students’ remarks, the manager insults them and threatens them right till the arrival of the BAC. The four young people are embarked unceremoniously, direction custody, court, prison.

 The judge sentenced them to months in prison for the “violence in numbers during demonstration” (? !! ??? !!) because of their involvement in the protests against the labour law. The trial does not even talk about the reason for their presence at the scene (= to denounce the sexist and homophobic communication of “bagelstein”). Once again, the court of Rennes has instructed a political trial, aiming to make these four students pay for the “malaise”, the “blues”, the “fatigue” of traders from the city centre because of the mobilization against “Job Law!” which has gone on for three months.

 The “decoration” of the “Bagelstein” denounced by the feminists and by the imprisoned students in Rennes is:

 A CALL TO RAPE:

“LOVE IS A SPORT, ESPECIALLY WHEN ONE OF THE TWO DOESN’T WANT IT”

 MACHISM :

“THERE ARE 3  CATEGORIES OF WOMEN: WHORES, SLUTS AND PAINS IN THE ASS”.

 Whores sleep with everyone, sluts sleep with everyone except with you, the pains in the ass only sleep with you. “

 Homophobia:

“I’VE HAD ENOUGH OF THESE GAYS! “

 FREEDOM FOR ALL THE PRISONERS OF THE SOCIAL MOVEMENT

 DOWN WITH PATRIARCHY, DOWN WITH CAPITALISM IS, ITS BOURGEOIS JUSTICE AND ITS GUARD DOGS.
