The story of this book from a desire. That of a street educator Paris suburbs to write chronicles the life of a city, with young people he meets in his work. The idea is to first set up a writing workshop where, for once, are interested in expressing themselves and not the people who talk about their lives in their place. This work was aimed in the first instance, to write an article for the Chained Duck on the relationship between youth and police. The project is carried out and the article. The taste of writing, putting words on things experienced is then felt. Its relations in the world of publishing, Joseph Ponthus (also newspaper contributor Article 11 ), then proposes writing a book on all aspects of life of these young people: school, training, religion , police, justice, prison, and deal delinquency, the galleys, the moments of joys and sorrows shared ...

The story, written in the form of a diary, narrated by the teacher and interspersed with texts written by young people, is fluid and well aware of the pace of implementation of the project, while telling moments of life appendices neighborhood while writing the book. It also makes the job of street educator forward and may question the presence of social workers and their role: éducs are they there to ensure social peace, cut corners or accompany these people to self- and emancipation? Extensive debate.

More than a testimony, this book is a compilation of moments of life of a young neighborhood. The place is not initially clear because ultimately, this newspaper could be modeled on that of many cities, tired of the stigma of the State and the economic system, the police oppression everyday people live, are doing and s 'organize themselves.

Far from the image that the media and politicians and politicians turns of neighborhoods, this book breaks many stereotypes and described in a simple way and without waffling a daily violence suffered or committed.

This work, undertaken while keeping all militant and partisan attachment, opens a discussion on activist practices and discourses to the people of the neighborhoods where the acts of solidarity and a more significant presence would probably make more sense than a propaganda ad hoc and often non-existent from political activists.
