AIRPORT CAPITALISM =
A TURNING POINT IN THE FIGHT
Representative struggles against capitalism and its consequences for humanity and the
planet, the mobilization against the airport project is entering a new phase.
On the ground, with the active occupation of the ZAD and cultivation of land seizures,
with 200 local committees throughout the hexagon, it has never been as strong and organized.
Objections to the project demonstrated by contradictory complementary studies and legal
remedies - which delayed all the project - the state flouted its principles of legitimacy
(democracy, defense of the common interest ...) to serve private benefits of a
multinational and building a metropolis of Grand West fantasy, new sesame Economic Growth.
Thus, the prefect of Loire-Atlantique signed end of 2013 work permits Road Bar and
destruction of species, the ZAD of Notre Dame des Landes, announcing a future transition
strength. This would not be new to impose a major industrial project ...
When Caesar operation in autumn 2012, are determined opposition on the ground and
solidarity that followed, which prevented the launch site .
Today, we will not cut the showdown, even if it is difficult to predict when, where and
how ... If the next municipal and European elections may delay the offensive, they will
not change since both parties could reach the "business" , PS or UMP, are for the project.
EMPLOYMENT, A STOOGES SKEWED
All arguments of the project leaders have been removed (Nantes-Atlantique saturated
sounds, economic profitability, actual cost of an extension ...), the pro-airport now
trying to tout the job creation and recovery economic activity ... with a majority public
funding of â 600 million largely underestimated and Private Public Partnership in gold
Vinci (which also deprive sites of many small businesses!).
Indeed, social situation is deteriorating (business closures, growing insecurity, reduced
public services, social assistance and pensions ...) in parallel with increasing tax
incentives for employers: 50 billion cuts in social contributions and credits taxes, in
exchange for promises ...!
European free trade treaties with Canada and the U.S. will further destabilize many
sectors. The proposed "farm thousand cows" of Abbeville, stopped by the mobilization,
embodies the model of agribusiness, profitable thanks to the price of electricity produced
by biogas, without regard for the human and environmental consequences.
If model is needed, it will eliminate peasant agriculture that still resists. The logic of
all economic, fueled by the government, is the opposite of the values ââof mutual aid and
food autonomy brought by resistance to airport project.
ANOTHER COLLECTIVE ORGANIZATION FOR THE PRODUCTION SHARING
This blackmail employment must be terminated by opposing another production model, defined
collectively, taking into account the human, ecological and social settings.
For example, the initiative Sow your ZAD zadistes together since March 2013 and farmers
experiment another group operating in recultivating by various techniques of expropriated
This critique in acts of capitalism is also the logic of urban reorganization at work on
the Nantes-Saint-Nazaire, future metropolis that justifies the eyes makers an
international airport, a road bar and all urbanized areas will follow! Again, the economic
competition between urban centers globally legitimate a policy of concentration on the
cities, reaching a threshold as their population and resources guarantee a favorable
economic environment to maintain them in the international race by profitability,
creativity and staging of their attractiveness. That was the gist of the operation "Nantes
European Green Capital 2013".
NANTES, A CITY THAT MAKES gentrified
This concentration of wealth, services, cultural initiatives and technical infrastructure
provided access to the centers of these cities affluent social classes, simply by local
taxes, property prices and consumption patterns proposed. Capitalist logic at work has
driven the lower classes to the periphery and the center gentrified. It was attended by
local political powers in a chair urban community imposes its choice to the old common,
integrated and "digested".
Ayrault The government has also formalize this trend become a priority strategy by
appointing fifteen regional cities plus major intercommunal with new responsibilities.
This does not mean less state but reorganization of this unit still more at the service of
capital, in real time .
Transfer from the airport to Notre Dame obeys the logic of this new local order
reorganizing and polarizes authoritarian space near or regional, to become essential,
The airport and road bar are necessary metropolisation and result.
Some opponents of the airport just sit in the institutions that carry, finance and manage
the project: this contradiction is a fundamental point of cleavage and unsurpassable them
and we . If there is already a depopulation of the countryside, a slow life in towns and
small cities, condemned to second homes or dormitory, the metropolis still accentuate the
majority of the population, scattered and isolated, with commuting required between
residential and working areas, commerce and recreation.
minimum sociability This induced the organization of the metropolis can only encourage
passivity and discourage attempts at resistance.
's fight against the airport project thus raises much broader issues concerning the
capitalist mode of the future society, the development of our territories and our lives by
force, in the interests of capital and the state. In addition, a view class, as workers,
unemployed, precarious, we have no need of this airport and our participation in the fight
also expresses a social solidarity with small local farmers and precarious opponents which
together build live work grow and experiment on the ZAD.
PROCESSION FOR ANTI capitalist and BOSSY
On 22 February, we call heard this expression so joyous and determined in the anti-airport
protest to ask explicitly visible and all these issues to get to the bottom of the review
of this useless and harmful project, in perspective social emancipation.
After the failures of social struggles in recent years, this block Airport and win this
battle forty years project (and we will win!) Help turn the tide in France ... but also
because this fight has taken on an international dimension . It is to reconstruct a
balance of power against capitalism, to promote other struggles and prevent
criminalization, as trying to do the Italian State which equates resistance TAV project
Lyon-Turin terrorism and uses and procedures and emergency laws, close to a situation of war.
Lead this struggle, it is also trying to develop today other social relations not based on
capitalist competition and state authoritarianism, but rather based on solidarity, mutual
aid, direct control, autonomy self and social movements.
