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