Communiqué from the assembly of the anti-airport movement (9/17)
Why we are opposed to the expropriation judge coming to the zad on tuesday the 22nd

The government declared they no longer want to wait for the legal appeals (related to the airport project) to finish, which means they are breaking the engagements made in 2012 and in 2014.

They chose to begin by putting pressure back on people renting on the zad, and sending the expropriation judge to their houses.

From Lucioles

This text on the wave of sans-papiers occupations in Paris tells important lessons for those involved in migrant struggles on the strategies used by liberal democratic states to contain them. If we anticipate these moves, how can we pre-empt them? And what strategic targets are based near you?

Original French text in Lucioles #23 with the title ‘Against states and their borders: revolution’; roughly translated by Rabble.

"They kill us for their profit - death to the Sivens dam"

Book review: Sivens sans retenue: Feuilles d’automne 2014

Of all the many projects opposed by protesters in France in recent years, the small dam planned for the rural southern valley at Sivens was hardly the most important.

But it quickly became a milestone battle in the growing struggle against industrial capitalism, thanks to the determination of the participants and the violence of the state’s repression.

On October 26 2014, student Rémi Fraisse was killed by a sound grenade fired straight at him, at point blank range, by military-style gendarmes.

Thursday August 2nd 2012, Yuan’é Hu is on the sidewalk in Belleville. It’s the same place she’s been nearly every single day since she ended the hard journey which she to took to get to France eight months earlier. Just like several hundred other Chinese women in their forties she left her life, her daughter, her family, and her friends to make the trip. Europe and its promises, the promise of «decent» wages, of better working conditions, of «freedom» which is portrayed in the rare western media which isn’t filtered by the authorities of the hinese Communist Party. But just like so many others Yuan’é Hu was tricked by a passer who had promised her both a job which would allow her to send a little money back home and papers. That’s how she ended up on the sidewalk selling her body in miserable conditions, sharing a room with eight other women, all of whom have been denied their dignity.
