(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #289 - Highway: GCO, suspension of a key yard (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Fri, 28 Dec 2018 07:13:29 +0200

The great west bypass of Strasbourg suffered a paralyzing legal setback: the administrative court suspended the completion of an indispensable interchange to this useless highway. ---- On the site of the Great Western Bypass (GCO) of Strasbourg, while since Tuesday, November 20, the hunger strikers, faced with a deterioration of the health of some of them, had ended their action began a months earlier, [1]a court decision has upset the situation: " By order made today, the Administrative Court of Strasbourg suspends the derogatory prefectoral order allowing Sanef to destroy the protected species to build the access ramp North. Work will not resume until the substantive judgment has been reached. " [2]
Remember that behind the " ecological " pseudo-arguments to justify the project, " the only certainty that road reinforcement can give is that we will find work ... further ; that we will have to own a car for that " . [3]In full movement of yellow vests, this judicial decision takes a particular color.

This decision will have an immediate and important impact on the work in progress. Without an exchanger, the GCO no longer makes sense. Barring a rapid rebound, deforestation should not occur during the winter of 2018-2019. The deadlines for a further examination of the appeal on the merits by the Strasbourg court are of the order of several months or more. The calendar is now based on a decision in mid-2021.

Mobilization must not relax
But the suspension remains fragile. In their decision, the magistrates reproached the prefect for asserting that " the imperative reason of major public interest " is justified in particular by the compensation measures. However, the general interest must, according to the Environmental Code, be assessed without

these measures. But they did not indicate, unlike another judgment in September, that the situation is " easily regularized " . However, in the field, Sanef no longer began work once the interim was filed on October 26, after some face-to-face with opponents.

The decision of justice comes to consolidate a mobilization which never stopped: for Michael Kugler, one of the animators of the collective GCO No thanks, " the decision gives us reason in the sense that one did not go to oppose every morning for nothing " . [4]In the field, several scattered actions continue, including planting plants where earthworks have been started.
