On the morning of Tuesday 30th November 2004, Thyde Rosell and Jean-Marc
Raynaud were arrested by the Poitiers SRPJ on the orders of the national
anti-terrorism division (DNAT) as part of an enquiry into complicity with a
terrorist organization. Thyde Rosell and Jean-Marc Raynaud have been members of
the Fédération Anarchiste for nearly 30 years and for several years have run
the Bonaventure libertarian educational centre on the island of Oléron.
At their personal expense, they welcomed a "sans papier" child of 3 years of
age, today 8 into the Bonaventure centre. They openly admit this act and repeat
it in their statement [see http://www.ainfos.ca/04/dec/ainfos00016.html for
statement, in French].

This young boy later proved to be the child of Mikel Albizu, known as Antza,
and his companion Soledad Iparraguirre Genechea, alias Anboto, two clandestine
ETA militants arrested on October 3rd last. Searches were ordered of the home
of Thyde and Jean-Marc as well as of the Bonaventure premises. During the day
Jean-Marc Raynaud was admitted to hospital. Police custody can continue for 96
hours without charges being made or without news of the physical and mental
state of our two friends.

The Fédération Anarchiste gives its total support to Thyde and Jean-Marc as
well as to their family and friends in this testing time. The Fédération
Anarchiste demands their immediate release and an end to all legal proceedings.
The Fédération Anarchiste is uneasy about the increasing criminalization of
political and trade-union action as well as of acts of assistance towards
"illegal" migrants and all the victims of this society that grinds individuals
down. Solidarity and aid are not crimes, but a practice and a necessary and
legitimate duty between the oppressed in their struggles against oppression and
