(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #284 - Nuclear: June 16, for Bure we walk to Bar (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 5 Jun 2018 07:59:04 +0300

Mobilization continues against the Cigeo bin, a catastrophic solution for the non-management of nuclear waste. The Bar-le-Duc event promises to be a big date. AL will be ! ---- The fight against the Cigeo project to bury nuclear waste in Bure (Meuse) did not say its last word. After falling asleep and manipulating the population for twenty years through seduction campaigns and attractive subsidies, the state and the government have turned into brutality and unapologetic authoritarianism, just like what they are practicing against the whole social movement. ---- The demonstration of August 15, 2017 was violently repressed and no less than 500 gendarmes expelled February 22, the dozens of opponents who occupied the wood Lejuc [1]. ---- The crackdown then intensified: surveillance, searches, intimidation, repeated identity checks, roadside checks, twenty-four to forty-eight hour police custody, administrative bans and imprisonment. After the weekend of mobilization and the intercom meetings of March 3 and 4, several people were arrested. Finally, on May 23rd, 11 " owls ", as the opponents call themselves, went on trial at Bar-le-Duc. A big fair was organized the same day to support them.

An alternative to burial
It is with stainless contempt that the state and the nucleocrats pursue the atomic colonization of the Meuse. A new bogus national debate was announced, and Nicolas Hulot told the National Assembly that this project was " the least bad solution ". On the contrary, the physicist Bernard Laponche clearly demonstrated, in an interview with the newspaper Le Monde, that the geological storage of nuclear waste was " the worst solution " by complicating the monitoring and maintenance of thousands of highly toxic barrels whose degradation is inescapable over the centuries. It recommends to store them in the medium term in " subsurface », Where they will remain more easily accessible, and to continue research to reduce the harmfulness and the lifespan of the most dangerous nuclear waste [2].

On March 5, a prefectural decree authorized RTE, a subsidiary of EDF, to " enter the parcels located on the territory of the commune of Bure " for the purpose of " electrical connection of the project " [3]. Let's hope that these intrusions will exasperate the inhabitants and even the least conscious inhabitants.

Opposite, the dynamic of protest remains good. From the evening of the February 22 eviction, dozens of local support committees gathered in front of the country's prefectures. We are also moving towards new ways of fighting. On May 18th, a call was made for the construction of tree houses to gain visibility. The next day a wrestling assembly was held at Montiers-sur-Saulx, near Bure.

The day of June 16 in Bar-le-Duc will be a great meeting, bringing together the protesters in all the diversity of their tactics. A morning to think, and the afternoon to act ! We'll meet you there !
