“I simply didn’t see where the inevitable reformism was coming from this time, discreetly but surely, from those who speak of insurrection and autonomy by the thousands of copies.”
Quote from “The movement is dead… Long live reform.” 2017

The Zad was our pirate ship, the mother of all Zads. It emerged in a time with no way out and it was as if the world became a little more bearable. Like a brief glimmer of light, a possibility breaking through the thick, sticky fog of our future. For those of us who lead full and busy lives, off the beaten track, it was the knowledge that there would always be a place to welcome us if we were on the run. A place where the state would never come for us. A place where we would always find allies to feed us, to clothe us, to hide us in the folds of its hedges.

France,Belfort: zealous citizen vs. camera burners

Attempted arson of the new video surveillance camera camera
Est Républicain, 27 August 2021 (extract)
The new video surveillance camera in Moscow Street, Belfort, has been the victim of an arson attempt.
On Wednesday night, shortly after midnight, the fire brigade of South Belfort and the police were called by the municipal police because the base of a lamppost and the grass were burning at 7 rue de Moscou, near a sports field and parked cars.
Three individuals sprayed an accelerant halfway up the pole before setting it on fire; the liquid spilled to the ground. When the emergency services and the police arrived, the flames had been extinguished by a local woman with a bucket of water. The camera is still working. Only the pole is blackened.

Orange : the police station targeted with a Molotov cocktail during the night
La Provence, 26 August 2021 (extract)
It was around 1.40am on Wednesday night that police officers stationed at the Orange police station on Avenue du Général de Gaulle noticed a loud explosion in the building’s courtyard on the video surveillance footage.
A fire then spread rapidly, given the very dry vegetation. The fire was only contained by the rapid intervention of the officers on duty. Once the fire had been extinguished with fire extinguishers and buckets of water, the officers found that it had been caused by a Molotov cocktail, thrown over the fence, most probably from the skate park adjacent to the police station.

On the night of Wednesday 11 to Thursday 12 August 2021, a 23-ton excavator was set on fire on an archaeological excavation site linked to the reservoir project in Saint-Sauvant, a commune in the Vienne department located about four kilometres from the commune of Avon, in the Deux-Sèvres. The excavator belonged to the 2 Sévrienne Service company, located in Saint-Gelais.
The gendarmerie has opened an investigation for criminal damage. The Volvo machine was rented by the National Institute for Preventive Archaeological Research (INRAP). The site had started on Monday 9 August 2021. The archaeologists were intervening before the construction of a water storage facility for agricultural irrigation: Saint-Sauvant is part of the project of 16 “reservoirs” to be built along the basin of the Sèvre Niortaise, a project that has been the subject of controversy since 2017.
