(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - policy, The state of censorship: police pressure against Indymedia (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 7 Oct 2017 13:38:43 +0300

The Indymedia Grenoble and Nantes websites received an ultimatum in the name of anti-terrorism. It is an inadmissible infringement of the freedom to inform. ---- On Thursday, 21 September, a message claiming the burning of a hangar of the gendarmerie of Grenoble was published on the participative websites of information Indymedia Grenoble and Indymedia Nantes. A few hours later, these two sites were contacted by a department of the Ministry of the Interior, the Central Office for Combating Crime Related to Information and Communication Technologies (OCLCTIC), which left them the " choice "To remove this message from" provocation to acts of terrorism or apologizing for such acts " ; * leave the message and be blocked and dereferenced. ---- Censor the message or be totally censored, therefore. ---- Both platforms had to yield to the threat and withdrew the message of demand, not without publishing in their turn protest communiqués [1].

With the absurdity of such a censorship: the message of claim has meanwhile been reproduced and widely disseminated by " mainstream media " such as the Dauphiné Libéré which they have not been disturbed, [2]Alternative Libertaire denounces the flagrant interference with the freedom of information by the Ministry of the Interior.

Support Indymedia today is not to endorse the fire. It is a matter of refusing the trivialization of the censorship currently imposed in France and in the rest of Europe. Also struck recently were Indymedia Linksuten in Germany [3]and Catalan independence sites [4], in the name of the " fight against Islamist terrorism ".

As Indymedia Grenoble and Nantes say: " What affects us today is what can affect all other media in the future ."
