Villiers-le-Bel
The Empire fights back!


The Power is weakening by the day! Three weeks from the local elections, something was needed to give a boost to the Right, that knows it can count on security issues to try to win the elections!

The gigantic police operation carried out on Monday in Villiers-le-Bel - in reprisal for the riots which broke out last November following the deaths of two teenagers struck by a police car - is a reminder that the residents of the working-class districts are a favourite for the anti-social, repressive policies of the Sarkozy State.

Against the police violence, the police checks on individuals with certain facial characteristics and the raids carried out by the "armoured democratic" regime, we offer the alternative of a project for a fraternal society of equality and solidarity.
