(en) France, Coordination Groups Anarchites CGA - Against repression, solidarity is our weapon. Giorgos support January 21, 2013 (fr) [machine translation]

Montpellier - Another Future ---- October 21, 2010, as part of the intensification of the fight against the destruction of pensions, collective inter against pension reform, has decided to partially occupy the Agency Pôle Emploi Avenue from Toulouse to Montpellier. At this time, the movement radicalized and blocking actions of the economy intensified,
becoming widespread throughout the country. During this same period the State has decided to go against the offensive. Based on the discourse of media talk about "thugs" or invent another category of "thugs" (those that block), the Prime Minister condemns' intimidation, violence and blockades "he says synonymous of "denial of democracy and the republican pact". And government spokesman asserted that he "will not leave the country by blocking the picket lines."

During this action, leaflets were disseminated to inform and mobilize the unemployed as employee-es of Pôle Emploi. The discussions helped to establish contacts.

It was later decided to go into manifestation on the Avenue de Toulouse. After 5 minutes and after about 300 meters, all of a sudden (without any warning) at least two cars of the Police swooped on the motorcade. Simultaneously, several officers of the Anti-Crime Brigade (BAC) violently charged the demonstrators distributing batons. The police arrested and put in custody five people in total. Among them, Giorgos, unionist CNT militant Coordination of Anarchist Groups participating in the social movement against pension reform, was arrested. No charges have been filed following the action. 4 people arrested with Giorgos were released without prosecution. It would have been the same if Giorgos had agreed to submit to DNA sampling. The "crime" is punishable by one year in prison and 15,000 euros fine. His opposition to social control, is translated here by a refusal to genetic filing. To justify the prosecution charged the police to carry weapons Giorgos 6th category: a "Opinel" he used to picnic!

September 22, 2011, the court sentenced him to one month suspended prison sentence, not relying on any fact, but only on the single principle of refusal FILING DNA. Worse, the prosecutor's argument followed by the judge takes the crime of opinion. It has stressed the commitment anarchist Giorgos demand to justify a conviction. Faced with this denial of justice, Giorgos and his supporters have decided to appeal this judgment. In fact it was an arrest / conviction among thousands of others during this period. For years the state organizes the restriction of our freedoms and seeks those who resist passing laws: LSQ (Daily Security Act) - Act I Perben - LSI (Homeland Security Act) - the Law on the prevention of crime, LOPSSI 2. Before this escalation of laws criminalizing social movements, it is necessary to organize the face of repression and defend our freedoms.

We ask you all to come January 21 at 13:30 in the court of the Court of Appeal (1 rue du Maréchal Foch) to support Giorgos and show our opposition to the criminalization of social movements and bid security.
