(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL spécial de juillet-aout - Bure: why is the state so determined to break the dispute ? by AL Nancy (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 29 Aug 2017 09:19:34 +0300

Another 30 injured on 15 August. Cigéo, the demoral project of an eternal trash is supposed to restore the technological blazon of a nuclear industry at bay. ---- On Tuesday, 15 August 2017, in Bure (Meuse), a demonstration of more than 800 people tried to reach an archaeological site dating back to the Neolithic era and hidden by the National Agency for Radioactive Waste (Andra). The fortnight of vans of mobile guards and the water cannon provoked the procession at the exit of the village of Saudron. Result: more than 30 injured and 3 hospitalizations, one of which could lead to the amputation of several toes [1]. The State therefore decided not only to militarize the region, endangering the lives of opponents. ---- Tomatoes no nuclear waste ! ---- How did we get there ? A flashback is necessary. ---- For several years the opposition swells against the delirious project of a nuclear waste disposal site supposed to last hundreds of thousands of years on the Bure site [2].

Since the " summer of emergency 2016 ", the attention of the opponents has been on the wood Lejuc. Andra began clearing to construct wells to evacuate the gases that would emerge from future buried barrels. The sale of this wood to Andra on 2 July 2015 by the municipal council of Mandres-en-Barrois was annulled by the court on 22 February 2017 on account of irregularities. It was narrowly reconfirmed by the municipal council on May 18, 2017, but a new appeal was filed, supported by the network Sortir du nucléaire.

The wood was occupied by opponents in mid-June 2016, before being expelled. The Andra then illegally erected a wall 2 meters high to protect its works. A second occupation was organized in mid-July despite the strong repression of the mobile guards, sometimes backed by ... Andra's private militia ! [3]. Following the resignation of the director of Andra, and in the absence of the police, a crowd of 400 people shot down the wall [4]on August 14, 2016. A nice move, added to legal remedies and occupations , Has borne fruit since the works of the wood Lejuc were declared illegal by the justice, Andra even to restore the forest [5].

On the action day of 18 February 2017, nearly 600 people reached the laboratory of Andra, protected by an important police force. The crowd dropped the laboratory grills despite the deafening grenades and deconcentration that injured about 20 people - two were hospitalized.

Last summer, from 11 to 13 August, the Bure'lesque Festival brought together over a thousand participants in a festive setting featuring lectures, screenings, debates, live performances and concerts.

Cigéo to mask the nuclear sinking

The struggle at Bure shows that Andra is ready to do everything possible to carry out its project, in defiance of the opinion of the populations and the ecological consequences. It is that behind the Andra, the whole French nuclear sector is putting on the culmination of the Cigéo project.

The French nuclear sector is sinking into an irremediable crisis [6]. Affected by the Uramin scandal in 2007 [7], Areva is unable to extricate itself from the EPR shipyards in Flamanville (Manche), Taishan (China) and Olkiluoto (Finland), and a fourth will be added to Hinckley Point in Great Britain, 'Be the ball too many. As for EDF, the cost of dismantling nuclear power plants - inescapable though always pushed back - is still unknown, and waste management is insoluble. For the Prime Minister, Édouard Philippe, who was Director of Public Affairs of Areva between 2007 and 2010, the Cigéo de Bure project must prove to the world market that the French sector, despite its difficulties, is still at the forefront of technology .

For an alternative to this system

From the colonial plundering of the uranium mines of Niger to the creation of an eternal dustbin in Bure, to the sacrifice of the health of employees and local populations: the nuclear society is necessarily police and undemocratic !

The libertarian communist movement supports the struggle at Bure, at Flamanville and everywhere else. We need to popularize the need for total nuclear exit [8], primarily by reducing electricity consumption across the company and the development of renewable energy, distributed generation and under popular control To avoid recovery by the capitalists, as is already seen with the business of the giant wind turbines [9]. The question of the management of nuclear waste will arise after the cessation of their production.

To achieve this, it is clear that the institutional path does not work: the law of energy transition, supposed to bring to 50 % the share of nuclear in the French electricity production causes no concrete act, even with cosmetic presence of An environmental minister in the government. Change will be imposed only through struggle.
