“I was fourteen when Georges Besse was executed. A few months later, the members of Action Directe were arrested. Of the event I grasped only a few words and names, some images, all reduced to a brief news item. Then, nothing. Fading.Yet, one name remained. Nathalie Ménignon.” Besse was the CEO of Renault; Action Directe was a libertarian revolutionary group active from 1979–1987.
