(en) France, Union Communiste Libertaire - Solidarity against the expulsion of the Amassada by ALNG (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Fri, 11 Oct 2019 09:36:59 +0300

This Tuesday, October 8, around 5:30 am, the gendarmes began the expulsion of the "free hamlet of Amassada" in Saint-Victor-et-Melvieu, Aveyron. Activists have been fighting for more than four years, opposed to the project to install a mega electric transformer, carried by RTE (Transmission Network). ---- The rumors circulating for several days were confirmed yesterday when large units of mobile guards arrived on the Larzac, Millau and St Rome Tarn, neighboring town of St Victor. Opposite, activists, residents of the village and members of the peasant Confederation arrived to defend the ZAD. Several families in the village offered to welcome the zadists. The mayor has reaffirmed its support for the Amassada and provides the ballroom from tomorrow to accommodate supporters and the press.

In the early morning, the mobile gendarmes, supported by two armored vehicles, repelled the 50 or so activists present despite the barricades, the determination and the songs. About fifteen people perched on the roofs, before being expelled one by one. Three arrests have been made, and the machines have already begun the destruction of the site.

As a reminder, this is a mega-transformer project, sponsored by RTE, a subsidiary of EDF, which intends to connect all renewable energy facilities in the region. The mega-transformer will take away the electricity that the Aeolian promoters promise to supply by erecting nearly a thousand wind turbines. This wind project is not intended to reduce the share of nuclear power but to produce surplus energy for export. No energy benefits are expected for the department or even in terms of jobs. It is a capitalist project made to fatten RTE by the biai of the famous public-private partnerships.

The Libertarian Communist Union affirms its total support for the expelled from the Amassada and the inhabitants in struggle !

Solidarity with the Amassada ! No res our arresta, nothing will stop us !
