(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL Septembre - Grand Paris: Triangle of Gonesse, a project that wrong (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Thu, 29 Sep 2016 11:34:45 +0300

The traditional smoky "participatory public debate" on Europa City was held between March and July 2016. Despite the involvement of opponents and opponents, the result to be published in mid-September leaves little doubt about the continuation of this project already tied. ---- The 700 hectares of grain land Triangle Gonesse - among the most fertile in Europe - are forbidden to build habitats, due to the proximity of Roissy and Le Bourget airports. But other forms of development are possible in the airport corridor long whets the appetites of developers and local officials and elected. ---- Hence the Europa City project Pharaonic commercial and tourist center, worn by a real estate subsidiary of Auchan. It would fit in a development zone (ZAC) piloted by the public development Plaine de France, which bétonnerait about 300 hectares. A station of line 17 of the Grand Paris Express, located in the field, would serve Europa City.

stop Europa City

This project is the culmination of a broader purpose: complete urbanization of the entire area between Paris and Roissy. Europa City is but one of the major poles of the dynamics of the Grand Paris, which led to concentrate wealth in eight clusters on the ground to enhance the international attractiveness of the Île-de-France.

The developers point out that 400 hectares would remain preserved in a protected agricultural area (ZAP). Without abandoning the claim to stop the Europa City project, the Costif (Coordination for the solidarity of the Île-de-France Territories) takes them at their word, and is currently working on an alternative project.

This project would keep a portion of cereal crops next to a logical installation and young peasants in horticulture farms and organic farming, tending towards permaculture. For the institution, the two main arguments of the project are thus the creation of sustainable jobs and youth. For Costif it's mostly instil a new vision of agriculture, because in Gonesse two worldviews clash.

Just like many other experiences in Île-de-France (AMAP, educational farms, associations pushing the installation of farmers or the purchase by citizens collectives threatened land), Gonesse Triangle could become a laboratory that agriculture, unlike the prospect that offer merchants conditioned and climaticides dreams of Europa City.

Agriculture at the service of everyone

The objective of the Costif therefore remains the withdrawal of the project, a necessary step for the Gonesse land are free to develop agriculture in the service of all. Since 2012, the Costif rallies, Saclay in Gonesse through Montesson, against projects that destroy agricultural land, increase social and territorial segregation and hinder another vision of the future.
