(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - Call for mobilization against industrial wind power in Aveyron (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Thu, 2 Nov 2017 12:27:19 +0200

AMASSADA in Aveyron has struggled for years against the installation of a transformer Very High Voltage (THT). This one should be built in a very small commune for very European purposes of energy sales for EDF. This time it is the end of the legal procedure before the start of the construction, with the procedure of public inquiry which will last from November 7th to December 2nd. The collective organizes a big week of events from November 2nd to 9th to mobilize citizens, unions, peasants, inhabitants on the spot or far away ... from the beginning of the investigation. Then a whole program will run until the day of the departure of the investigator. ---- For all those who wish to fight industrial wind and green growth, come and or support: ---- the website: https://douze.noblogs.org/ you can subscribe to the mailing list of information: amassada[at]riseup.net

In 2009, RTE announced its intention to build a mega-transformer in the vicinity of the village of Saint Victor to evacuate far away the electricity that the Aeolian promoters promised to supply by erecting nearly a thousand of these gigantic industrial machines. The mayor of the time gives his agreement on the sly, making the villagers fit, and the mega-transformer project is validated on the place called the plain, in the heights of Saint Victor. RTE probably thought that it would be easy ... It was without counting on the mobilization of the inhabitants, the associations, the new municipal team and all those who fight here and elsewhere against the sacking of our territories by the industrial wind turbines, the lines THT and all these big projects imposed.

There were meetings, debates, evenings, songs, demonstrations, buildings, so many ramparts that made stone after stone back the project. But RTE does not hear, RTE does not give up, and it is preparing to launch their public inquiry, the last legal step before the expropriations and the beginning of the works. But we are still there, and all together we say NO, we do not want the public inquiry, we do not want the transformer. It is this truth that we want to affirm, and we do not need a so-called citizen consultation to know it. That's why we will do everything we can to prevent RTE from moving forward and doing its work.

To answer this masquerade that would reduce us to statistics, we have chosen and life and struggle: many appointments are already fixed, others will probably be added, the more we will be, the more we will be strong. COME, it's not windy, it's time !

In the program:

To feed our minds and refine our strategies, 2 Nov meets with Yannick Ogor, author of the book " the impossible peasant, story of struggles " at 20h in the village hall of Saint-Victor
To publicly assert our opposition to the transfo, large gathering on Saturday, November 4 at 11 am place of freedom in Saint-Affrique (be careful ! It is well place of freedom and not in front of the town hall as indicated on the poster).
to prepare, the 5 Nov at 16h, assembly of the fight with all its actors in the village hall of Saint-Victor.
to " welcome " the investigator and denounce the masquerade of the public inquiry, November 7 appointment to Saint Victor from 9am
To feed our minds and refine our strategies, Nov. 9 " the imaginary networks, a brief history of French technocrats ", a conference terminator studies at 20H in the hall of Saint-Victor
For the second coming to Saint Victor of the investigating commissioner, the December 2 " pot of departure " with a appointment to Saint victor at 9 am, rebelote we made bloc ! ... followed by a big event in Saint-Affrique at 15h Place de la Poste, in connection with all the collectives that are fighting here and elsewhere against large imposed projects. To celebrate together the cancellation of the public inquiry for useless project, a concert at the Amassada in the evening under the new halls.
Continuous all month, we will be present on the market of Saint-Affrique every Saturday morning.

And we finish the construction started at the wind festival (plaster / blanket of the new house and roof / cladding halls) throughout the month at the Amassada
