(en) France: Alternative Libertaire member assaulted by police in Aix-en-Provence [fr]]

Date Thu, 08 Jun 2006 17:42:05 +0300

Last week, students of the faculty of literature in Aix-en-Provence succeeded
in preventing the holding of the first round of the "national
university/employment debate at the university of Provence.
Under cover of "addressing students' expectations", this masquerade was
intended to help Villepin improve his image after the CPE disaster.
Yesterday, the second round of this "national debate" was held at the faculty
of Law, again at the university of Provence. But this time the administration
had decided to call in the heavy guns to smother all protest. The police came
to filter those in attendance, letting only certain people though, with the
help of a list of names.

A debate that therefore took place without students, in the sole presence of
the bosses and the university management.

Outside, the students tried to disrupt this dignified gathering with noise and
singing. Only the intervention of students prevented the police from arresting
one AL comrade, Jean-Pascal. However, the police did not take no for an answer
and charged the student group, manhandling them and using violence.

Jean-Pascal was finally dragged out from among the demonstrators by the police
and was beaten up. He was then taken to hospital before being placed in police
custody. He is due to appear in court this afternoon.

This is the third time in five days that an Alternative Libertaire member has
been the victim of police repression.

Students in struggle, friends and comrades, we must tighten our ranks!
Don't let it happen!

Alternative Libertaire
