(en) France, UCL AL #313 - Ecology, 82. Biodiversity: more land in Gonesse, less Grand Paris Express (ca, de, it, fr, pt)[machine translation]

Date Tue, 9 Mar 2021 10:10:43 +0200

After the abandonment in 2019 of the Europacity project in the face of the mobilization for agricultural land in the Triangle de Gonesse, the battle has not yet been won. Sunday January 17 a rally took place against the guard of the Grand Paris Express and the ZAC project in progress. ---- This Sunday, January 17, we were nearly 500 people gathered in the Triangle de Gonesse in Val-d'Oise (95), to defend these fertile agricultural lands against the work of the Grand Paris Express station. Despite the snowfall the day before, the mobilization was a success. It must be said that the urgency is there, the Société du Grand Paris having announced the resumption of work for mid-February 2021.
Coveted, these lands were first threatened by the mega-project Europacity, a huge shopping and leisure center abandoned in 2019 by Macron. They are now in danger in the face of the urbanization of a 110 hectare ZAC and the creation of the line 17 station. The government speeches announcing the fight for biodiversity and against the artificialization of soils have been forgotten! Scanned the calls of scientists and those of the Citizen's Climate Convention to prevent any further attacks on agricultural land! And this with the support of the government but also of local elected representatives.

An assembly of struggles opened on the 17th, bringing together different groups such as No au T4 (Fight against the extension of Roissy airport), Vigilance JO 2024, Save the wind area (see article on page 15).

Highlight of the day: The Oath of the Triangle[1]was read by a Gonessian - Julien Vermignon -, a market gardener - Alain Crochot, from Cergy - and an author - Marie Desplechin - then signed by all those present ( to sign it ).

This oath is a title of co-ownership committing his or her owner to defend these lands and the living people who inhabit them. Many elected officials and activists also took the oath: deputies, elected municipal officials, representatives of trade unions and parties. This day ended with a stroll towards the old base of the site, blocked in 2019 by the Collectif pour le Triangle de Gonesse (CPTG).

The CARMA project as an alternative
The government would now have the possibility of choosing a real future project for the Triangle and its inhabitants: the CARMA project. The latter proposes the creation of a food belt north of the Ile-de-France region, in order to relocate agricultural production. Unlike off-ground projects which only propose transferring jobs in tension from one ZAC to another, this project focuses on a diversification of the professions offered, in line with the qualifications and expectations of the inhabitants (hotels and restaurants including school, logistics, driving vehicles etc.). In December, the municipality of Montreuil embarked on this approach by choosing to subsidize it.

We are soon celebrating the tenth anniversary of our collective and we will not let go !
