On the 17th of July, 17 pleas against the airport project in NDDL were rejected but the Administrative Court. The French Prime Minisiter, Manuel Valls, immediately stated that this court ruling “must lead to the resumption of the building work.”
We haven’t forgeten that the French government, after the protest on the 22nd February 2014 in Nantes, had promised to wait for the end of the legal proceedings before acting. We want to remind everyone that associations and groups have lodged an appeal on the verdict of the court and will carry on their legal fight. Depsite the threats, the occupation of the ZAD of Notre-Dame-des-Landes won’t stop.
The crops, habitats and activities are getting denser, with thought on the long term with farmers, local people and many friends of struggle from here and there. We will fight to the end in order to continue to live in this area and against the capitalist management of the territory.
If they try to start up any kind of building work related to the project of airport and its servicing or to attack the ZAD, we are ready to resist together, with all our diversity, on the lands of Notre-Dame-des-Landes and far beyond. We already repelled the César operation in 2012 and we will do so again if necessary.
Today, we are even stronger thanks to local movements and ones from elsewhere, and the support of more than 200 local committees (see the proposals from local committees in case of eviction or the start-up of the building work on the ZAD: https://zad.nadir.org/spip.php?article3095)…
In one word: “Valls [go to] list yourself!” A group of occupying people at the beach but not too far from the “bocage”.
