Last september, the investigating judge of Bar le Duc has supervised different police searches executed the 20th of september as part of a letter rogatory further to the damaging of the ANDRA’s hotel restaurant during the action week of june 2017. Investigators of the crime squad of the police force of Nancy led an investigation extended to the events of summer 2016, 23th and 30th of January, 18th of February, May 2017, June 2017, 14th of July, 15th of August and maybe more. Since January 2017, the notification of « free » audition or « appearance notice » are sent randomly to anybody that was controlled (in a car control or at the police station) throughout the year, got his plate number noticed during these events, people supposedly identified (on pictures, by their lost personal goods, by cops…), activists of local associations struggling against Cigeo.
We have lot of reasons to think that these notifications are going to multiply during 2018. The goal is to feed a more serious procedure which aims to stifle the struggle using trials and police intimidation (which is already blatant on the field with constant pressure from Riot police) . The criminal conspiracy is a juridical framework that has been often criticized for being fuzzy, justified by crime of intention and fed by the numerous suppositions of security prejudice of the Interior Ministry. Under the pretext of notifications of free auditions of activists or as witnesses, their goal is to turn a shallow accusation into a serious case. This malicious method has already been used elsewhere as a mean to exhaust people, to create fears, to create division among the militants and finally dealing a serious judicial blow a few years after, by the production of thousands of pages of files, to a few obstinate activists that are in the end, considered responsible of everything. Against this low-intensity repression, it is important to show solidarity against the will of division of the movement caused by the threats and intimidation and to show our cohesion beyond our diversity of opinion and practice. We must communicate on the notifications, inform each other of events, define collectively our defense and resistance line, and also keep our fierce and joyful determination in resistance. By refusing to feed their security fantasy displayed in the declarations of notification, we will dismiss this delusion of a criminal conspiracy by our declaration during auditions, and instead show that our actions are mostly the expression of an a relentless feeling of injustice and revolt. Against the general corruption, institutionalized around a radioactive project that spreads at the pace of the growth of the omerta, the resignation and the scientific lies it creates, we won’t let them atomise us, we are numerous and we want to be alive, to create and to struggle here with a social and political vision that goes beyond the mere antinuclear struggle.
