(en) Czech, afed: An important victory [machine translation]

Date Sat, 27 Jan 2018 07:50:29 +0200

The social protest movement in France won. After a long and protracted struggle against the construction of the airport in Notre-Dame-Des-Landes near Nantes, which would devastate the environment, the government was forced to retreat. ---- On Wednesday, January 17, 2018, the French Prime Minister announced the final rejection of the airport construction plan. Victory has a great moral and activist meaning. It has shown that resistance to state and capital can be successful. Perhaps the cowardly and helpless bureaucratized unions, who have twice abandoned the struggle against the neo-liberal reforms of the Labor Code, will also take the example. ---- The statement of activists says: ---- Victory ---- Fifty years of fighting, ten years of protest occupation of the planned construction zone. Memorable manifestations. Tens of thousands of people - from the countryside, from the city, squatters, young and not so young, rave and well-ordered - who go along the streets of Nantes or on Notre-Dame-Des-Landes. Laughter and crying ... Meetings and festive nights ... Dozens of local committees. Threats, support ... and finally - victory! The government officially rejects the airport project.

As for the occupied "protection zone", there is still a threat of partial eviction. The media can break down to make a victory, and the government is trying to punish the fight and show "hardness and authority" on the cameras, and it still repeats over all the antennas. For example, he organizes police raids into the zone, as meaningless as dangerous.

But first for a long, long-lived time, he managed to beat the Governor of France! It's not just Notre-Dame-Des-Landes ' success . It is a signal for all who fight everywhere. And especially for the fight against devastating projects. Winning is possible! It is not always the final victory in the hands of multinational corporations and their cops. That's why this victory has a historical character!

On Wednesday, January 17, 2018, airport opponents gathered to celebrate victory at the Prefecture of Nantes.

The struggle for farmers-squatters to remain in the occupied zone continues.
