Representative struggles against capitalism and its consequences for humanity and the planet, the mobilization against the airport project is entering a new phase.
On the ground, with the active occupation of the ZAD and cultivation of land seizures, with 200 local committees throughout the hexagon, it has never been as strong and organized.

Objections to the project demonstrated by contradictory complementary studies and legal remedies - which delayed all the project - the state flouted its principles of legitimacy (democracy, defense of the common interest ...) to serve private benefits of a multinational and building a metropolis of Grand West fantasy, new sesame Economic Growth. Thus, the prefect of Loire-Atlantique signed end of 2013 work permits Road Bar and destruction of species, the ZAD of Notre Dame des Landes, announcing a future transition strength. This would not be new to impose a major industrial project ...
When Caesar operation in autumn 2012, are determined opposition on the ground and solidarity that followed, which prevented the launch site .

Today, we will not cut the showdown, even if it is difficult to predict when, where and how ... If the upcoming municipal and European elections may delay the offensive, they will not change since both parties could reach the "business", PS or UMP, are for the project.


All arguments of the project leaders have been removed (Nantes-Atlantique saturated sounds, economic profitability, actual cost of an extension ...), the pro-airport now trying to tout the job creation and recovery economic activity ... underestimated by a majority public funding of 600 million euros and a widely Public Private Partnership Vinci's Gold (which also deprive sites of many small businesses!).
Indeed, the social situation is deteriorating (closures businesses, increasing job insecurity, reduced public services, social assistance and pensions ...) in parallel with increasing tax incentives for employers: 50 billion cuts in social security contributions and tax credits in exchange. .. promises!

European free trade treaties with Canada and the U.S. will further destabilize many sectors. The proposed "farm thousand cows" of Abbeville, stopped by the mobilization, embodies the model of agribusiness, profitable thanks to the price of electricity produced by biogas, without regard for the human and environmental consequences.
If model is needed, it will eliminate peasant agriculture that still resists. The logic of all economic, fueled by the government, is the opposite of the values ââof mutual aid and food autonomy brought by resistance to airport project.


This blackmail employment must be terminated by opposing another production model, defined collectively, taking into account the human, ecological and social settings.
For example, the initiative Sow your ZAD zadistes together since March 2013 and farmers experiment another group operating in recultivating by various techniques of expropriated land.
This critique in acts of capitalism is also the logic of urban reorganization at work on the Nantes-Saint-Nazaire, future metropolis that justifies the eyes makers an international airport, a road bar and all urbanized areas will follow! Again, the economic competition between urban centers globally legitimate a policy of concentration on the cities, reaching a threshold as their population and resources guarantee a favorable economic environment to maintain them in the international race by profitability, creativity and staging of their attractiveness. That was the gist of the operation "Nantes European Green Capital 2013".


This concentration of wealth, services, cultural initiatives and technical infrastructure provided access to the centers of these cities affluent social classes, simply by local taxes, property prices and consumption patterns proposed. Capitalist logic at work has driven the lower classes to the periphery and the center gentrified. It was attended by local political powers in a chair urban community imposes its choice to the old common, integrated and "digested".
Ayrault The government has also formalize this trend become a priority strategy by appointing fifteen regional cities plus major intercommunal with new responsibilities. This does not mean less state but reorganization of this unit still more at the service of capital, in real time.
Transfer from the airport to Notre Dame obeys the logic of this new local order reorganizing and polarizes authoritarian space near or regional, to become essential, central, profitable.

The airport and road bar are necessary metropolisation and result.
Some opponents of the airport just sit in the institutions that carry, finance and manage the project: this contradiction is a fundamental point of cleavage and unsurpassable them and we . If there is already a depopulation of the countryside, a slow life in towns and small cities, condemned to second homes or dormitory, the metropolis still accentuate the majority of the population, scattered and isolated, with commuting required between residential and working areas, commerce and recreation.
minimum sociability This induced the organization of the metropolis can only encourage passivity and discourage attempts at resistance.
's fight against the airport project thus raises much broader issues concerning the capitalist mode of the future society.


On 22 February, we call heard this expression so joyous and determined in the anti-airport protest to ask explicitly visible and all these issues to get to the bottom of the review of this useless and harmful project, in perspective social emancipation.

After the failures of social struggles in recent years, this block Airport and win this battle forty years project (and we will win!) Help turn the tide ... in France but also elsewhere because this fight has taken on an international dimension. It is to reconstruct a balance of power against capitalism, to promote other struggles and prevent criminalization, as trying to do the Italian State which equates resistance TAV project Lyon-Turin terrorism and uses and procedures and emergency laws, close to a situation of war.

Lead this struggle, it is also trying to develop today other social relations not based on capitalist competition and state authoritarianism.
