About the Tarnac 10
On November 11th 2008, French Anti-Terrorism Police arrested around twenty people, mostly in Tarnac, a small village in the Corrèze region of central France. Nine* were subsequently accused of “criminal association for the purposes of terrorist activity” in connection with the sabotage of train lines which had caused delays on the French railways. Very little evidence has been presented against them, but central to the prosecution is their alleged authorship of a book, The Coming Insurrection, and their supposed association with what the French government and media have termed an “ultra-left” or “anarcho-autonomous movement.”
*As of December 3, 2009, ten people have now been indicted in this case.
