Parisian anarchist library threatened by “anarchists” because of alleged "Islamophobia" (France)

via non-fides

Words of introduction by the translators (Dialectical Delinquents) : The following is a translation of a communique sent out from the anarchist bookshop “La Discordia” in Paris, which has been tagged and been the subject of smears calling them fascists because of their critique of Islam.

Various comments have been circulating the Parisian “anti-authoritarian” milieu describing both La Discordia and non-fides (which are not the same thing, despite some people being involved in both, some are involved in just the bookshop/library) as racists and – at least in the case of non-fides – as anarcho-nationalists. Anyone looking at either of them for longer than 2 seconds would realise that there’s not only not the slightest bit of truth in these slanders, but also that they have consistently maintained an internationalist position contrary to some of the implicitly nationalist stances of some of the “anti-authoritarians” (e.g. a failure to critique Palestinian or Kurdish nationalism). Whilst this graffiti might seem a fairly trivial incident, such things, unless vigorously contested, can have a miserable result far worse than a tag. A lie goes half way round the world before the truth has time to get its boots on. And in a world of lies, most people are ready to believe anything as long as it conforms to their prejudices – lies are taken on faith, and most avoid checking things out themselves (one only has to look at the history of Stalinism to understand how vicious calumnies and amalgam techniques can become). So, in the spirit of solidarity with these anarchists, I have translated this text, despite it being of interest to fairly few people.

As planned long before, on Tuesday, January 26th, a debate entitled “Islamophobia: the conceptual political extortion racket” was held in La Discordia. We wanted to confront ourselves and others with a topic that is at the crossroads of the current widespread confusion over the condemnation of racism and the defense of religion. The joint discussions were interesting, and the sixty or so comrades and companions who came (we promise, next time we will rent a larger place, and with more chairs!) demonstrated that a lot of people find the need for a revolutionary critique of religions, every religion, even Islam, which others would like to palm off as the “religion of the oppressed.” (more…)

Dan and Olivier – “Nothing to declare: Why we refuse to participate in our own repression” (France)

Thursday, March 14th, 2013

from nonfides, translated by waronsociety:

Nothing to declare
Why we refuse to participate in our own repression

It has now been two years since the investigation into “public defamation of public officials” and “incitement to the commission of an attack against a person without effect” was opened in relation to the tract “Correspondants de nuit: des agents de proximité de la guerre aux pauvres” [Night correspondants*: Agents of the war on the poor], published in late 2010 on Indymedia and then reposted on many sites, such as Non Fides and Retour à Belleville, but mainly distributed widely in several districts of Northeast Paris.

During the course of this investigation, we have received several summons (simple letters and then certified letters, and calls from the police on our mobile phones) which we have chosen to ignore. Some of our relatives have also been summoned and questioned.

After our refusal to cooperate with the pigs’ work, they decided to proceed with two searches, first of Dan’s house on May 15, 2012, and later of Olivier’s house on January 22, 2013, during which they robbed us of computers, USB sticks and external hard drives. Until now, we had not been indicted, but today, judge Maïa Escrive has called us to a “first appearance for an indictment.” (more…)

Yet More Pressure Against the Site Non-Fides.fr (France)

Wednesday, January 30th, 2013

From Non-Fides, transl waronsociety:

Tuesday, January 22nd at 4:45 PM, the BRDP knocked on the door of Olivier and announced: “Search!” Olivier is targeted this time because his name is the registered host of the site Non-Fides.fr. Once again, agents came in order to find out the authors of the tract “Correspondants de nuit: des agents de proximité de la guerre aux pauvres” [Night correspondents*: Agents of the war on the poor] published the 6th of October, 2010, on Nantes Indymedia and relayed to various sites (including Non-Fides) and widely distributed in Belleville and in Northeast Paris, where five night correspondents and the city government had complained of “defamation” and “incitement to the commission of an offense without effect.” (more…)
