Creil: fire “probably” criminal of a building belonging to Suez
AFP, 8 July 2021 (extract)
A fire “probably” deliberately destroyed a building belonging to the Suez group in Creil (Oise) on the night of Wednesday 7 to Thursday 8 July, according to the public prosecutor’s office, a source close to the investigation establishing a link with the recent installation of video surveillance. According to the police, the fire broke out at around 00:30 in an administrative building of Suez Eau France.
“It almost completely destroyed one of the buildings dedicated to water activities, (…) which houses activities related to customer service, computer servers and archives,” without causing any injuries, a Suez spokeswoman told AFP. “An investigation is underway and in view of the testimonies, it is more than likely that the fire was deliberate,” Jean-Baptiste Bladier, the Senlis public prosecutor, told the AFP news agency. “We are not ruling out a link with the firing of fireworks during the day at a newly installed surveillance camera,” he added. According to a source close to the investigation, “video surveillance cameras had just been installed at a water tower…”.

Action in Caen
17 June 2021
During the night, we vandalized the Socialist Party office (rue Paul Toutain) in Caen. We tagged their facade and embellished it with some rotten eggs (but less rotten than these politicians).
The choice could have been made just as well on the premises of the National Front, the Republicans, the LREM, or La France Insoumise, on any party that participates in this biased political game and in the progression of conservative, republican and reactionary ideas.
Down with their elections, long live self-determination!

Mont-d’Origny (Aisne): multiple sabotage against the Orange network (France)

Still no phone in Mont-d’Origny, the Orange network has been sabotaged in several places
Aisne Nouvelle, 30 June 2021 (extract)
For about ten days, many homes in the district were without an Internet connection. If this is bearable for a few hours, it becomes complicated to live like this for several consecutive days. Fortunately, the network came back on Monday during the day.  It turns out that the breakdown is linked to several acts of malice. “I got information about the problem. Orange told me that there had been acts of sabotage in several places on the network. There were wires cut with pliers,” explains Gérard Allart, the mayor.
What is more serious is that, at present, the inhabitants, although they have access to the Internet again, are still unable to use the fixed telephone network. Here again there has been damage. “The telecom wire was cut in two places on one line, for example,” continued the mayor, who spoke to the employees who worked in the municipality. “They told me it was deliberate. They showed me the footprints on the electricity poles. The people went up and cut them”, the mayor lamented.

A guide to putting Toulouse’s cameras into early retirement.
This guide only deals with methods of destroying camera cabling. To destroy the camera itself you have to knock down the mast or climb to the top to break the camera, this requires heavy and cumbersome equipment (disk cutter, ladder …) and  is therefore another story.
 1 – Scouting
The location:
Movement of people and vehicles, cameras (public or private) with a view of the targeted camera, nearby cops/vigilantes/etc.
What the camera is attached to:
On a wall, on a mast, the type of mast (old style light grey or dark grey and smooth for the new ones).

“Dirty Pig”: the car of a municipal policeman of Tours tagged and damaged by fire
France Bleu, June 25, 2021 (extract)
A municipal policeman of Tours, living about twenty kilometers from Tours, has been in shock since Wednesday night when an attempt was made to set fire to his personal car, around 2 am. A “tag” was also left on his hood, “dirty pig”, an inscription “in the form of a scratch with a key, or a screwdriver” he explains.
*Remi was asleep when his wife was awakened by noises coming from outside his house, around 2am. She first saw a bright orange color, similar to flames. When he went outside, *Remi did not see anyone, but smelled a strong odor of gasoline. He then saw traces of attempted fire on his vehicle, as well as impacts on the window, proof that the passenger window was forced, also without result.

Cham (Switzerland): Internet and TV connection cut in the early morning

Telecom cables damaged by fire in Cham
ATS, 27 June 2021
A fire broke out in a sewer housing telecom cables around 00:30 on Saturday night in Cham (ZG, i.e. the canton of Zug). A part of the population of the region is deprived of television, internet and landline phones, but not of cellular.
The cause of the fire is unknown. No one was injured, the police said Sunday. The repair should take a long time. The damage is considerable, it said in a statement. Despite the rapid intervention of firefighters, many lines have been completely destroyed. In some parts of the Cham-Ost region, landline connections as well as Internet and TV lines are therefore interrupted. The cellular network, however, is not affected by the interruption.

Two new churches were burned down on Saturday 26 June on native territories in western Canada, bringing the total number of churches burned to four, since the discovery of a thousand unmarked graves near former residential schools run by the Catholic Church in British Columbia.

Crest and Eurre (Drôme): Cable fires block TGV trains

via: attaque.
France Bleu / Friday 25 June 2021

The high-speed line is out of service in Drôme because of several arsons over the night of Thursday, June 24 to Friday, June 25, around 3 am in Crest. Power, signal and fiber cables were set on fire in four different places in an area of 100 square meters. The damage is very important, 50 SNCF agents are mobilized for the repairs. The amount has not yet been calculated by the SNCF.
The repairs will take time, the traffic could resume normally Saturday at 16:00, it is only an estimate of the SNCF, nothing is certain at this stage. Trains are running, but are obliged to use the classic line. This means that no train leaves or arrives from the Valence TGV station.  They have to go through Valence Ville. The Paris-Marseille line, which is very busy, is particularly affected.
All the TGV and TER trains on the same line cause traffic jams. According to the SNCF, all trains are about an hour late on Friday. The SNCF has filed a complaint. The research section of Grenoble is in charge of the investigation with the research brigade of Crest. In December 2019, a similar fire had already taken place, with the same method. The trains had also been stopped.

France 3 / Saturday 26 June 2021
“This Friday, June 25, around 03:30 in the morning, south of Valence, four facilities containing signal cables located on the Mediterranean high-speed line have suffered a fire,” said the SNCF in a statement. “An act of sabotage was committed on the high-speed line at Eurre in the Drôme, electrical cables located underground were set on fire along the tracks cutting the power supply and signaling,” said the prefecture.
On the photos taken on the vandalized site, one can see charred cables. The SNCF indicated that the damage was “very important”. […]
An official was giving an update this Saturday morning. “Since yesterday (Friday), 4am, we have mobilized more than 50 specialized SNCF agents. This is specific work that had to be done,” explained Alexandre Bertholet, head of the Marseille-Valence LGV, this Saturday morning. “We have replaced more than 20 cables. More than 1,000 meters of cable were renewed. “
In addition to replacing the 20 cables affected, it was also necessary to carry out verification operations. “We had to mobilize resources to carry out this work but also to test the installations and make sure that we can resume traffic this morning (Saturday) at normal speed and in complete safety.” 
According to the Dauphiné Libéré, “the damage caused by the sabotage of the TGV line amounts to more than one million euros” (title of a paid article dated 26/06).

Ramonville-Saint-Agne (Haute-Garonne) France : Turning off the civilized light

via : attaqueJune 27, 2021
At the beginning of June, we attacked the Lespinet electrical substation (63kV) in Ramonville-Saint-Agne.
We chose this small transformer station because we had to start somewhere. Because these structures are sensitive nodes of the electrical network. Because electricity appears to us today as the blood of civilization. Because we are prisoners of the human empire. So much so that even when we try to escape by contemplating the stars, satellites chase us. Because it blinds us, and we want to extinguish the civilized light.
A plunge into the unknown. When we entered the enclosure, we wondered if we would die electrocuted. But nothing happened, even 2-3 meters from the transformers. When we set fire to the transformers, we wondered if we were going to reduce this station to ashes and plunge a part of the city into darkness. If there would be an explosion, if the surrounding factories would stop, if the streetlights around us would go out. But that didn’t happen either.
