TWENTYONEMILES: Migrant struggles and resistance in Belgium, France and Switzerland

Is it a crime to be anti-detention in France?

Filed under: detention, France — twentyonemiles @ 8:07 pm

In December 2004, a text was published which denounced the participation of Bouygues in the construction of detention centres and called for the establishment of a movement against the company, as part of an anti-detention campaign which took from place from November 2004 -April 2005. In January 2005, Bouygues submitted a legal claim attempting to stop the distribution of the text. Now today, five years on, 4 people who were administrators on websites where the text was published (Indymedia, pajol, and réseau anti-pub), have been summoned to the magistrates court on 11/06/10 for the crime of “direct provocation…for destruction and damages”. There will be a demo in support of the activists outside the court at 1pm.
