On 1st April a shoal of fish [From ‘poisson d’Avril’ – ‘April fish’. On ‘April fool’s day’ a paper fish would be taped to someone’s back without their knowing it as a practical joke] targeted a dumper truck owned by Eiffage in Montreuil [near Paris]. A hammer fish smashed the windscreen, a saw fish took the tyres and an octopus left a clear message: “Eiffage, jail constructor. Down with prisons, Death to jails”.
Eiffage fill their pockets building jails and detention centres for migrants. This gesture wants to be a response in solidarity with those who struggle against this world and those that the repression is beating down on, as in a case of “criminal terrorist conspiracy” * and with the rebels of the detention centre for migrants in Mesnil-Amelot last January**.
In the moonlight or the daytime, there are still plenty of Eiffage trucks to be destroyed!
A shoal of fish going against the tide
