Here is the electronic version (PDF) of the latest issue of Non Fides, a periodical anarchist journal from Paris, France.
a translation originally appearing on the Tarnac 9 blog, but which has since been removed. this is the imposed pdf intended for printing.
note: this is a draft translation. if you can read French, you should really rely on the original, as, although decent overall, this translation loses some subtleties in the language (e.g. the use of "écart", or the impersonal pronoun "on" which is hard to translate, and so on).

intensifi ed workloads, as it is an issue of the provision of disciplining services for those occupying the fringes of work. Could it not be that the ‘rise of the therapeutic’ is part of a wider socio-historic process that is under-pinned read more »
Os Cangaceiros was a group of delinquents caught up in the spirit of the French insurrection of 1968 who refused to let that spirit die. With nothing but contempt for the self-sacrificial ideology practiced by “specialists in armed struggle”, this uncontrollable band of social rebels wreaked havoc on the French state — attacking infrastructures of oppression, supporting popular revolts, stealing and releasing secret blueprints for high-tech prisons, raiding the offices of corporate collaborators, and creating their lives in complete opposition to the world based on work. read more »
