Paris, France: CGT Windows Smashed in Solidarity with Prisoners

On the night of January 28 to 29, we pierced the window of the local CGT at 1 rue de Nantes (Paris 19th).

This is a direct message to the CGT and its dirty prison warders in response to the call for solidarity with the prisoners in Roanne. ( http://nantes.indymedia.org/article/26893 )

We also take this opportunity to send a warm revolutionary hug to Mike, imprisoned in Chambéry (a letter from him here: http://actforfree.nostate.net/?p=13087 ).

Surprising anyone even reports a broken window anymore. Must be fruitless attempt at discrediting the typical stereotype of anarchist "bombthrower". At least that stereotype is correct in some places like Greece. Doesn't really apply anymore in the states. I wonder why? Maybe cause of broken windows? lol

What the hell do you mean?

I don't get it. There's some context missing here for us who only read English and aren't well versed in foreign unions (or any unions). Are prison employees unionized through the CGT? All the hyperlinks either aren't in English or don't answer this question.

As to the smashed windows question, I wonder how far off the days is when the proprietors of this site get grand juried??

War on Society posted a slightly different translation (http://waronsociety.noblogs.org/?p=5839) with this note at the end:

____________________
Translator’s notes:
* The CGT (General Confderation of Labor), which historically has ties
to both anarcho-syndicalism and the French Communist Party (PCF) is
now the major trade union confederation in France. Prison guards are
unionized within the CGT.
