Paris, France – A spark
In the night between 21st and 22nd September we set fire to a diplomat’s car in rue Roger Bacon, Paris.
The reasons for this action seem clear to us: the path to freedom passes through the struggle against States and their servants. This little fire won’t change the world, some might say. That is true, but each action is a small spark that shines in the night and looks for a powder keg. Even more importantly, the decision to return the blows and fight the world and its horrors changes our lives here and now. This decision gives us moments of a life lived fully.
The wealthy neighbourhoods in Paris are full of cars belonging to foreign diplomats (even if it seems their owners have been more careful for a while now in Ternes [a wealthy neighbourhood in the seventeenth arrondissement in Paris, near the Arc de Triomphe]!). Cities are full of all kinds of targets. It is up to each of us to make our decisions. It is up to each of us to go to the attack.
A thought in solidarity with our comrades in jail (or under investigation) following operation Scripta Manent in Italy.
