(en) France, Alternative Libertaire #223 - Notre-Dame-des-Landes government bogged down (fr) [machine translation]

Date Thu, 10 Jan 2013 10:15:27 +0200

November 17 was held at Notre-Dame-des-Landes manifestation of reoccupation of the grove. It was for the protesters and demonstrators oppose deportation proceedings prior to construction of a new airport north of Pharaonic Nantes.---- For more than a month, hundreds of riot police are struggling to dislodge all the inhabitants and residents Zad, space for the construction of the airport. The Zad is the "holding zone" for Vinci and his servants, but it is the "zone defense" for those who resist large useless projects.-- After weeks of repression and resistance to the occupiers, this event was a turning point in the mobilization: a success to hope the tide, a failure of government signed the victory and the construction of the airport.

Towards a new Larzac

Success was the appointment, at least forty thousand people responded present from all over France and even beyond. The agricultural world is highly mobilized nearly four hundred tractors on site. Mobilization has also been a huge popular success and denied the government's rhetoric reducing resistance to a minority "violent".

Another vector mobilization campaign was the construction of housing in eco-housing in Zad. In one day, the "work" of destruction implemented by the state has been destroyed (as well as several million euros).

This massive mobilization is in continuity with that of the victorious struggles Larzac but also in the Breton tradition of popular resistance. Plogoff and struggles in the late 1970s and the book (near Nantes) in the 1990s against the construction of nuclear power plants were carried to victory. More recently, the fight for the maintenance of the hospital Carhaix was also victorious in a particularly hostile. Popular base to base, external support and complementary modes of struggle are probably the recipe that will bury this project another time.

Yes the grove, not to waste

However, facing a determined and cynical power, the struggle has yet to expand and take root to put an end to this deadly project. Several avenues are being explored, including the reoccupation of a massive agricultural joining the idea of âârelocating productive. The first call for the occupation of land in Notre-Dame-des-Landes was launched in 2009 by farmers during the Camp for Climate Action.

It was a success as one hundred and fifty to two hundred people moved to Zad and established organic vegetable gardens or farms goats ... In a time of mass unemployment, ecological crisis major cultivation areas in respect for nature [ 1 ] is probably one of the solutions to the problem. It does not call for a return to the land messy but at a time when many farmers can not find land to settle and where many unemployed and precarious doubt to fit into the world this track work is not to be overlooked.

The airport project is part of a social project that is not ours go faster to make more money without ever worrying about the needs of the people and for the benefit of a minority. Must register this rejection of the airport in a broader context of planning. Faced with this, the social movement as a whole must be able to carry a project company making alternative primer cooperation on competition, the needs of profit and restoring its place in environmental concern. Far from green capitalism and sustainability fashionable pink and green, we must wear alternatives.

Divide the makers ...

The fight still looks long and difficult, but it helped to accentuate the inherent contradiction in the presence of Europe Ecology Greens (EELV) government and pinpoint weaknesses of the executive, including Jean-Marc Ayrault, Prime Minister and former mayor of Nantes very invested in the project.

In addition, questions emerge within shareholders Vinci compensation offers that highlight the injustice suffered by the people - some farmers were offered by Vinci a redemption price of land at less than 1977 prices - and unease about the strength of the population.

And unify opponents ...

Coexistence of all components of the movement - the autonomous Modem - remains a daily challenge. However, beyond some differences on how the fight must be waged, cause that unites all opponents seems to prevail. Days of reconstruction have already been announced, support committees are popping up everywhere in France and Europe. About five hundred people, including farmers and their tractors remained in homes built 17 and the following days and permanence agriculture was established at Rosier (next house threatened with expulsion), the idea is to "ensure agricultural presence among people who resist "and leave twenty tractors up" for an indefinite period. "

The unity of action, mutual respect for different opponents and the creative energy of this struggle should allow to kick Vinci and his legions out of the grove and send Jean-Marc Ayrault to the mat. The change is not expected, it is created here and now to victory!

AL collective Nantes

[ 1 ] The grove of Notre-Dame-des-Landes is 98% of wet meadows typical of the Loire basin, the area preserved the unique biodiversity is thus very important for the river.
