action and solidarity with 4 people locked up in french jails since a few
months. They are accused of planning terrorist activity (sometimes just because
they were going to a demonstration with DIY smoke bombs) or taking part in
sabotage actions. They, amongst others, are pointed out as symbolic figures of
the « the resurging threat of anarcho-terrorists preparing for armed
struggle ». The french State is trying to build up this myth as a reaction to
ongoing revolts (migrants', workers', students', struggles against jails...).

U.S. intelligence chief in Israel to discuss Iran

05-06-2008 19:05

Just something to keep in mind in the weeks ahead when the Propaganda effort created by this meeting, the AIPAC conference, and Olmert's visit to DC, really gets underway.
