The French “ninja”

Posted on December 31, 2012


One of the biggest newspapers in France, Le Monde, spreads the accusation made by Stalinists that an anarchist who kicked a protestor trying to stop another anarchist from smashing a bank was in fact a police infiltrator. It turns out, the rioters were not “false anarchists” but real people angry at the banks. The supposed infiltrator in question was later identified by the police–turns out he was a real anarchist and not a police agent–and arrested. The French media did not correct their mistake.
