The general-in-chief of operations announces that he and his villains will stay for months to “secure the area so that projects validated by the prefecture can see the light of day”. Edouard Phillipe, the first disaster, speaks of “to put an end to the illegal occupation”. The prefect meets his chiefs today. More info to come!

A few days ago we reported on the meeting that had the Assembly of Uses of the ZAD with the prefecture (representative of the government in the area) on Thursday, April 19.

The government requires those who want to stay in Notre Dame des Landes to submit a nominative form and that day 40 nominative forms were submitted, and reports on the projects, but emphasizing that they are interrelated and form a common ecosystem.Image result for ZAD expulsions resistance

The prefecture said that the projects will be studied one by one, advancing that, of the 28 agricultural, seven “are not a problem”, 18 are “close to being carried out” and the rest “are a problem”.

In the event of new evictions in the ZAD, a call for mobilisation and reconstruction

Wed 25 April 18    Read in  [English] [français] (español)Image result for ZAD expulsions resistance

On 17 January we won a decisive battle. We achieved the abandonment of the airport project. We forced the state to bend, and now it wants its revenge: a police occupation of the territory (which is still proceeding); the rejection of all forms of collective management; the destruction of one third of the cabins; at least 270 people; 60 people arrested; fields suffocated with gas; 11,000 gas and stun grenades fired in a week.Image result for ZAD expulsions resistance

Despite this wave of violence, part of the movement has made a gesture of appeasement by filing named records with the Prefecture. But the government has not given up on evictions. All the living spaces remain under threat.

It seems that the government is basically aiming to eradicate the ZAD and the hopes that it raises.Image result for ZAD expulsions resistance

We continue to want a countryside space that is living, inhabited, shared, and in solidarity, and which has space for all persons who want to live there. We shall join together in refusing any new divisions, segregations and of the living areas and project activities of the ZAD. The heavy police pressure and the impossible ultimatums have to stop.

We also encourage the continuation of the dozens of decentralised actions that people have been taking since 9 April. In the event of new destructions of our living spaces, we ​​call for a massive convergence on the ZAD on the following Sunday. Together, we shall rebuild habitats and we shall cultivate the food gardens for all the people who have been evicted. Together, we shall rebuild the places of activity and sharing that have been destroyed.Related image

In these times when the government is trying everywhere to break the solidarities and the collectives, we send a strong message of support to the exiles [trans: term used instead of migrants and refugees], to the students in struggle, to the railway workers, to the postal workers on strike and to all those those who are resisting in other sectors.Related image

Details about meeting points and practical information will be posted shortly on the following sites:
