Solidarity with Copwatch, France

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

Fitwatch is giving full solidarity to Copwatch in France who have been threatened with closure by the French authorities for publishing photos of cops known for violence or links to the far right.

The Interior Ministry has filed a case against them which has ordered six French internet providers – Free, France Telecom, SFR, Bouygues Telecom, Numericable et Darty Telecom to block the site, although it is still available using Tor.

In France, there are offences of ‘outrage’, involving insulting a public servant with supposedly unfounded accusations (eg; calling a cop a fascist to their face) and a law against publishing a public servant’s photo without their
permission.

Copwatch are continuing to publish photos of cops accused of brutality and fascism, and are refusing to be silenced, and we send our solidarity in their fight against repression.
