“It must be that the truth rises from the slums, since only come from above but lies. “
Louise Michel, 1890.
November 25, 2007, Villiers-le-Bel. Two boys are killed by cops, several subsequent nights of rioting during which dozens and dozens of cops are directly attacked and injured, some seriously. The honor of the national police was hit in the heart, but their shame contributes to our happiness. Three months later, in 1500 and journaflics cops arrive on site, buckle the city and arrested about thirty persons on the basis of anonymous complaints and paid by the cops. Many will pay for disorders with sentences of several years in prison. On June 21, the four remaining indictees spend in court, accused of shooting at the cops. They already languishing in jail for two years.
No need to call on Madame sun to know they are condemned in advance by the class justice for which disorder and rebellion are unforgivable crimes. Through it, the whole democracy that takes revenge on her side unable to manage.
One thing is certain: it is simple, according to some data, to choose sides with clarity. We decided to revolt, because we expect nothing of the institutions: neither respect nor truth nor justice.
Clearly, these few nights of riots have cracked the social peace, as in November 2005 or in Greece, all the anger and frustration that explodes the daily receipts at night are the cars of cops crament, cops targeted to buckshot and Molotov, government buildings torched.
Wherever we are, let us also burst our rage and take our courage in both hands, because it destroys us is everywhere, our enemies are within our reach. This social peace can be imposed by the state violence is also forged our own helplessness and lowered our eyes against the arrogance of the mob, the condiments, judges, big brothers, teachers, small heads and managers aware of all kinds.
The game is worth the candle.
Neither justice nor peace.
That burst scales, that the social war prevails.
