Thousands of people in the Haute-Garonne near Toulouse were left without a telephone or internet connection following the attack on two telephone exchange points on Saturday to Sunday night, according to a report by leparisien.fr.

“CRAV”, which stands for the Comité régional d’action viticole (Regional Committee of Wine Action), was scrawled on the wall.

Michel Valet, prosecutor, said: “Inscriptions were found at the scene of fires, suggesting a movement of angry winemakers, but it is too early to draw conclusions.”

Since the 1970s CRAV, a group of quasi-terrorist winemakers from the Languedoc, have claimed responsibility for a number of acts of vandalism, arson and bombings and allegedly blew up the party headquarters of the Socialist Party in Carcassonne last July.

Earlier this year a menacing letter claiming that a recent helicopter crash in Bordeaux was not an accident was sent to a local newspaper as well as estate agents in the area.

It was thought the mysterious letter was sent by CRAV.

CRAV is mainly active in Languedoc-Roussillon in the south of France and operates with the aim of drawing attention to the difficulties facing winemakers in the region.
