Repression began with the kitchen - Freedom ended up in the garbage

Le Sabot
Info | Ticker

Yesterday,  Tuesday  march  31rst,  repression  took  another  step  forward.  At  lunch  time members from the Do It Yourself kitchen “Le Sabot”  were stopped at the german-french border on their way to the anti NATO village. The good reason the authorities had  to  stop  those  dangerous  terrorists  to  enter  french  territory  was  because  they  carried weapons: kitchen knives! With this arbitrary decision they are trying to starve the protest.


[update 13:58h - Le Sabot is trying to cross the border at the "European Bridge" and is being confronted with a massive police deployment.  There are negotiations going on. The Police is pretty stubborn: they say the van can cross but not the cooks...]


Other people have been forbidden to enter France because they were carrying nails, hammers and other tools we need to build the village. Since  the  beginning  of  the  week,  the  police  keeps  entering  the  village  contrary  to  the agreement made  during  the  negotiations with  the  prefecture.  This  night,  the  police  forces threw 6 shock grenades at  the security  team of  the village.


In  the  same paranoid delirium, more and more people are getting arrested around Strasbourg, even though the protests have
not started yet. Today at noon we call to a gathering at the bridge of Europe in solidarity with those arrested and blocked at the border.
Afterward we will join the United Parade against the Security Circus*.

We won't let them deprive us of our freedom
Revolution starts in the kitchen!
