Last week saw a new wave of repression targeting anarchists in France, with raids occurring almost simultaneously in several locations.

These two people were released 38 hours later, after a long interrogation on their political positions and  social networks. 
At the same time, there was also a raid in Limoges itself, and one person was placed in detention, while 500km away in Amiens their family was also facing a raid and interrogations. This person has been placed under an order for up to one year of investigative custody that can then be renewed. 

The next day, March 28, the little town of Ambert saw raids against three houses.
