France: Nuclear State = Police State – Attack Against Nancy-Maxéville Prison

On Friday, September 27, Nancy-Maxéville prison was attacked to denounce the repression of the nuclear state.

The day before the demonstration against the CIGEO nuclear waste landfill project, the “Vent de Bure in Nancy, we (symbolically) attacked the Maxéville prison, in order to greet our prisoners and comrades who are victims of repression, and to send a strong signal in favour of a society without prisons.

We marked the walls with paint, smashed several windows in the administrative buildings, fired smoke bombs into the prison yard and greeted the prisoners with fireworks around the prison. The action was secured by obstacles and burning barricades.

A nuclear state always means a police state. The implementation of this “patriarchal technology” necessarily implies centralization and accumulation of power – it is simply unthinkable without the repressive apparatus protecting it.

State repression in relation to the growing resistance around Bure is massive: people are being controlled, observed, denied access to and contact with each other, arrested and locked up.

A movement must take care of its prisoners! While on Saturday, thousands of people took to the streets against the nuclear waste disposal project, we would like to remind you that already today, some people are paying a high price for this fight.

Love and strength to all prisoners!
Fire to all prisons!
Stop CIGEO!

Autonomous Group

PS: With our action we also send smoke signals to Hamburg, to our comrade Loïc and to the Park Bench 3.
