(en) France, UCL Toulouse - Roland, the squatters and the media: analysis of the situation (ca, de, it, fr, pt)[machine translation]

We, a mutual aid collective between squats in Toulouse, which has been in existence for nearly ten years now, would like to come back to certain points of this affair. In particular, on the one hand, on approximations, false truths, media instrumentalization, the irrational runaway of social networks and on the other hand, in order to reaffirm our political position - which contrasts with the palpable unease of some of "our comrades ".[...]
