From Nantes IMC:
On the night of 3 to 4 February, the local CGT office at 13 RUE PIERRE BONNARD in the 20th arrondissement, saw all its windows explode.
This is because of their screws and their dirty work of confinement.
Through this attack, we want to send a full salvation of strength and determination to those who, in the jail of Roanne and also raise their heads to face prison and loose keychain uniforms. (For the record: http://nantes.indymedia.org/article/26893 and http://nantes.indymedia.org/article/26961)
On this occasion we also carry a combative message for Marco Camenisch and all rebels who do not let themselves be overwhelmed by the horror of prison, or by the horror of this society in its entirety.
This all sounds the cry of rebellion, which is also a cry of joy:
Death to prison
Long live freedom.

On the night of January 28 to 29, we pierced the window of the local CGT at 1 rue de Nantes (Paris 19th).
This is a direct message to the CGT and its dirty prison warders in response to the call for solidarity with the prisoners in Roanne.
We also take this opportunity to send a warm revolutionary hug to Mike, imprisoned in Chambéry (a letter from him here).

Nb: The CGT (General Confederation of Labor), which historically has ties to both anarcho-syndicalism and the French Communist Party (PCF) is now the major trade union confederation in France. Prison guards are unionized within the CGT.

May Day 2011 comes on the heels of two general strikes (29S, in September, called for by all the unions, and 27G, in January, called only by the anarchosyndicalist and radical independent unions). These strikes saw the creation of over half a dozen neighborhood assemblies and a periodic coordination between them, as well as other groups organizing at a citywide level. The confrontational barricades and pickets of the minoritarian unions (CNT and CGT) were vindicated, as were the insurrectionary anarchists’ tactics of attack and idea of an uncontrolled generalization of the struggle.
