Attack on Maxéville Prison in Nancy, France

Published October 1, 2019


Nuclear state = Police state

In the pre-evening of the demonstation against the nuclear waste-dump - project CIGEO “Vent de Bure” at Nancy - we attacked (symbolically) the prison of Nancy/Maxéville, to send greetings to our comrades who are imprisoned and those who are charged by repression. Also to send a strong signal in favor of a society without prisons.

We marked the walls with paint, smashed the windows of some administration buildings, launched smoke bombs and flares in the yard of the prison and greeted the prisoners with pyrotechnics in the surrounding.

The atomic state always implicates the police state as well. The “technology of power” is generally linked to the centralization of power and needs a repressive system to protect it.

The answer of the state against the growing resistance in Bure is massive : people get controlled and observed, locked under interdiction of territory and even contact, getting arrested and imprisoned.

While thousands of people went to the streets on Saturday, to demonstrate against the planned waste-dump, we want to remind that some people already pay a high price for this struggle.

LOVE & RAGE to the prisoners

Fire to all prisons!


PS : With our action we also send smoke signs of solidarity to Hamburg/Germany where our comrades Loïc and the three of the Park Bench are kept in prisons.
