Message from Occupy Marseilles’ 10D Camp

After a march from the City Hall to the Cours Julien about 200 protesters joined there for a brief assembly, then the camp started to be set up, under the watchful of the police.
Around 6 pm it was time for brasilian music played in live by a Batucada, and some people passing there reached the camp, all around the fountain where the camp was set up.

At 9 pm about 20 police vans reached near the camp. The police first ordered the outraged people to leave the place and then they began to charge. The outraged people has made a tortle as a way to resist pacifically. They have been evacuated one by one from the fountain.
The outraged people taken off the fountain by the police stayed on the square. They are still about 100.
Momentarily, the situation has been inversed : the indignants, out from the fountain, pacifically surrounded the police, singing.
Once the outraged people evacuated, as a way to end their job, the police throw all the stuff of the camp in a dustcart and prevent everyone to recover it. Goodbye banners, signs, cooking stuff, food, blankets, and so on…

Around 11:30 pm the police came back to the charge, using tear gas and taking away people occupying this place out from the Cours Julien and blocking all the streets of the neighborhood.
A man remained unconcious on the ground and a young woman received tear gas in her mouth.

Despite these unfortunate acts, our companions are still resisting.

About author
We are just like you, citizens of the world fed up with the critical situation and we believe a real change can be achieved through the coordination of non violent actions and self-managed alternatives around the world. There must be a better way of dealing with the survival and enjoyment of our life, we believe in consensus and in non-hierarchical organization. We believe that another world is possible, where nobody has to die of hunger while others throw food away. We don’t have flags and we fight the borders crossing them. We try to be in the best place at the good moment, from Brussels to Lisbon, from Madrid to Athens, reporting but also acting. We come from activist groups, hacking platforms or post capitalist projects and we participated a lot in the Spanish revolution since the beginning. We leave our respective assemblies for this international project of global coordination but we keep in touch, sending back information and visiting regularly. We are open to integrate new people to our project or to help the creation of new teams. More information about our way to work in the protocol.
