(en) France, Alternative Libertaire - AL release, Violence and degradations in the ZAD: the power wanted this confrontation that nothing justified (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

The movement against the airport, however, has expressed its intention to seek a
compromise solution for the future of land site Notre-Dame-des-Landes. We can read in this
attack the will of revenge of the government and the choice to give pledges to the
reactionaries of all sides who did not digest this anti-capitalist victory. ---- On
Monday, April 9, 2,500 gendarmes launched their offensive to destroy the homes of
occupants of the ZAD. The power is revenging today actors and actresses of the fight
against the project of airport in Notre-Dame-des-Landes (NDDL). ---- Since 3 am this
morning the gendarmes began their aggression against the inhabitants of the site of the
abandoned airport project. In their luggage they brought the necessary gear to destroy the
houses, but also armored vehicles.
The occupants of the site oppose a determined resistance against the rogue cops:
barricades of " vigilant tractors ", more conventional barricades possibly inflamed to
hinder the progression of the forces of the disorder, human chains ... The diversity of
the tactics of resistance vis-a-vis the invasion is part of the realities of the ZAD.
Despite the determination of the occupiers, the disproportion of the forces and especially
the military equipment brought and the tear gas that drowns the ZAD under a cloud of toxic
gases allow the gendarmes to gain ground. But the power must recognize that it will remain
complicated for them.
Gérard Collomb, the sinister is obliged to announce " we will maintain, as long as it is
necessary, forces of the order so that there is no new occupation ". Journalists are
blocked by cops who do not want witnesses to do their dirty work.
From 5.30 am an arrest and an injured are reported. From 10 am the cops begin to destroy

Although the movement against the airport has unambiguously expressed its intention to
seek a compromise solution for the future of the lands of the NDDL site, the government
wanted this confrontation that nothing justifies ... except the will of revenge of the
government and the choice to give pledges to reactionaries on all sides who have not
digested this anti-capitalist victory.
Libertarian Alternative denounces the government's all-repressive policy and this violent
and cynical class war, which it embodies.
In the face of these brutal thugs, facing the repression that is coming, it is important
to react immediately. Already 77 gatherings are planned everywhere in France .
Alternative Libertaire calls all those who can answer the call of the ZAD at a
demonstration in Nantes this Saturday and a convergence on the ZAD this weekend. Against
Macron and his policy, it is the whole social movement that must unite.
Libertarian Alternative, April 9, 2018
