from Jean-Francois Martos

To Guy Debord
22 January 1988
Dear Guy:

Along with Etienne and Sylvain, I was the object of a violence aggression in front of my door this past Monday (a first attack, at the beginning of the month, had failed); participating in it were Christian Sebastiani, Guy Bernelas and a third, unidentified nuisance.[1]

Announced by the letter from Mezioud [Ouldamer], this, it seems clear, constitutes the response from the EdN[2]: I do not believe it is useful to expect another one.

In the same way that it is also clear that this milieu no longer entertains any connection with the truth, but only defends its particular interests, and in the dirtiest fashion.

I propose that we get together quickly to look into the situation.

Best wishes to you both,
