(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #259 - Notre-Dame-des-Landes: The moment of truth (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 10 May 2016 11:17:12 +0300

The news is jostling always around Notre-Dame-des-Landes. Despite the success of the demonstrations of January 9 with blocking of Nantes ring and a strong mobilization in Rennes the following weekend, the ax of the court fell on January 25: farm evictions and "legal" homes are delivered from 26th March. means of production of the four farms in the Zad (livestock, equipment ...) can be entered at any time. The judge did not ask pushed cynicism to a fine of 1000 euros per day as requested obnoxiously Vinci. After accusing the blow, residents and inhabitants and farmers and farmers quickly regain taste for struggle. The next day, eighty tractors of the Collective of agricultural organizations outraged by the airport project (Buddy) were set up on different farms in the Zad to show the determination of farmers and farmers in the Nantes region . Buddy announces that it is only a first demonstration and many other tractors will be available in the event of intervention of security forces.

A future without airport

In continuation of the mobilization, a weekend "tender of the Zad to an airport without future" was held on 30 and 31 January. More than four hundred and fifty people applied upstream to come work for the construction of the Zad. Various works (maintenance of hedges, ditches, home construction) took place. This initiative reinforces the multiple experiences of existing alternative agriculture on site (production of cereals, bread, vegetables, etc.). Indeed, far from the cliché of "violent Zsadist and barbaric" (Retailleau, new president of the Pays de la Loire, comparing Zad in Aleppo and Mosul!), A majority of zadistes participates in the life of this territory and developing another project for society.

After the environmental commitments of a government that claims to be at the forefront of the fight against global warming, one of the first statements of Manuel Valls is to assert its authoritarianism by announcing the expulsion of Zad in the coming months. You can also see a great unity between the Socialist Party and Republicans, calling it "courageously" at the beginning of the project and denying the strong mobilization of January. The political vaudeville turns to farce with the emergence of Ségolène Royal who plays appeasement when Manuel Valls promises confrontation. Francois Hollande with his legendary cowardice let the situation deteriorate hoping for the "hot potato" to his successor.

The latest announcement speaks of an intervention in November 2016 which seems strange to six months of the presidential election.

media propaganda

After the trial of January 25, media propaganda and Ouest-France Presse Océan did not hesitate to lay an openly proaéroport and shocking editorial, calling unambiguously the work begins. This sheds light on the myth of "press freedom".

The employers' association and regularly proaéroport The West Wing has access to full pages in the newspapers. Their small numbers and their low representation does not exclude funding.

Following the cabinet reshuffle and the bad joke of a so-called "turn green" government, the national secretary of Europe Ecology-Greens, Emmanuelle Cosse, would have torn a referendum on the airport project. This decision had the merit to agree on the pro and antiaéroport shape and cowardice of this decision, typical of the verve of Holland.

We can ask questions about the realization of the referendum. Who will decide in scope: the region, the department or the municipality? Who will decide the question posed? Substantive issues of this case, based on manipulations and lies, they will be presented to the public? etc. In short, it all feels the huge hoax and whatever happens we will remain opposite-es to the project. Mobilization took place on February 27 Zad. It is our best guarantee that the airport project dating from another century would never do. We need more than ever to strengthen the mobilization, activate local committees because it is now that the fight is played! In these times of social regression this fight is the opportunity to prove that only struggle pays!
