On December 8, 2021, a year has passed since cops raided several places in France (Toulouse, Rennes, Ile de France, Dordogne) to take 9 comrades, in the name of anti-terrorism. They took them to the offices of the DGSI in Levallois-Perret in order to interrogate them before incarcerating some and placing others under judicial control (and leaving 2 under witness status).
It seems that this repression on the part of the State and the cops is a response to the accusation that they hate the State and the cops. In the midst of the social movement against the Global Security Law, as usual, the media have been able to brandish the headline of an anti terrorist affair in the “extreme left” and have given themselves a great deal of pleasure in magnifying this affair by repeating the police’s accounts. […]
After several months, some of them were gradually released from prison with strict judicial controls, and for a year now, one of the accused is still incarcerated, in Bois d’Arcy, in isolation (see the public letters of May 2021 and summer 2021), with no news of a possible trial date or release. Since solitary confinement is an “exceptional” measure of the prison, preventing him from meeting other people and limiting his movements outside the cell (by the obligation to be constantly accompanied by a guard and a supervisor and to have the entire detention area blocked off in order to be sure that he cannot see or be seen by other prisoners), the renewal of the measure should be done by the authority, no longer of the examining magistrate, but of the minister Dupont-Moretti prison.
But Mr. Minister, it is already too late. There is no point in isolating our comrade, hatred of the State and hatred of the cops are already widespread ideas, and with this case they are yet again reinforced.
Moreover, we sprayed it on the walls of the Grenoble courthouse on the night of December 7, 2021, in solidarity with the defendants of December 8.
Fire to the prisons!
Freedom for those charged on 8/12!
