- 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.
