(en) France, Non-capitalist development projects! Reclaiming land despoiled! "VINCI" ZAD outside the Notre Dame-des-Landes (CGA) (fr) [machine translation]
Thu, 06 Dec 2012 12:10:28 +0200
The airport project Notre-Dame-des-Landes was born in the late "60" in the minds
capitalists and speculators. ---- The site of Notre-Dame-des-Landes, elected in 1967, was
approved in 1970 by the Interministerial Committee for Planning to replace "Nantes
Atlantique" Nantes airport existed at the time, particularly to develop freight, and also
to accommodate the new Concorde proudly. ---- The people of the region and learned that
"The city Nantes - Saint Nazaire (become) the Rotterdam Air Europe by creating an
international freight airport in the north of the Loire." ---- "Experts" in anticipation
of traffic ventured to tell us the time to between 5 and 9 million passengers would attend
the current airport Nantes Atlantique 2000. ---- They rarely make mistakes we are told!
However, you should know that the airport is now home to 3.2 million per year ...
The project met almost from the outset a real suspicion of local populations, suspicion
quickly made up a strong resistance. Land of the General Council of Loire Atlantique and
were requisitioned to be transformed into spaces of struggle and collective life.
Remember that this project is not limited only to the construction of an airport, but also
includes the transformation of a militant agricultural area and its ecosystem in
international economic platform which VINCI should benefit, since c ' is she who is the
concessionaire of the project since January 1, 2011.
Successive governments of Right and Left together, have created and supported a project
"destructive" on several levels. It fits Indeed, in an area of ââfarmlands for
agricultural biodiversity which has linked the lack of consolidation and practice
extensive agriculture for many years.
Structural construction would impact significantly and ultimately the entire ecosystem
that is wooded frame, rivers, wildlife, flora and protected plant and animal species. It
destinerait land for commercial highly profitable, whereas they were previously restricted
A public inquiry was designed to evaluate both "the impact of the airport and its service
road on water and aquatic environments" and also "to determine whether projects work to do
( ...) satisfy the requirements of the Water Act "
Recall that in this survey, in the desert in the summer, 11 of the 19 councils involved in
construction projects gave an unfavorable opinion (1 did not want to view as totally
opposed to the project, 4 were not deliberate, 1 gave an unfavorable response to the Water
Act and favorable road access, 1 gave a positive response and one did not respond).
At the end of the survey, the makers have issued a favorable opinion!
As usual, the varnish "democratic" cracks under the blows of the interests of capitalism
and the state together.
Finally, when those who oppose the project and demonstrate use direct action, it is
repression, gassing and baton and that they are entitled.
Yesterday Plogoff, BesanÃon, the Larzac today Notre Dame-des-Landes!
Supportive of opponents, we reject the repressive policy of the state and support all
actions reoccupation of land. A Notre-Dame-des-Landes as elsewhere, defend reclaiming
spaces despoiled by the Capital and the State in order to make real living spaces without
authority, without hierarchy.
Let us now state our position to decide various future projects. His only skill boils down
to send legions police to promote the interests of owners and shareholders of large
companies, and all this in the silent complicity of the media.
SOLIDARITY with the militant occupation of land of Notre Dame-des-Landes and RELEASE of
this project useless.
