Owly shit, It’s my birthday ! From the 19 to 26 of June : let’s make an endless birthday party !

Translation : Yaaay It’s my birthday !

Dear friends,

I invite you from the 19 to 26 of June

To celebrate my 1st birthday party

Into Lejuc Wood 

An endless birthday party

We’ve been living in the wood for a year now !

 

We can feel today that the meaning of our lives can be found in autonomous communities. In the occupied rooms of the University, in the self-managed canteens, in the “zone to defend” (ZAD)… In Bure, the political quest for autonomy is taking place both in the collectives houses we bought and Lejuc wood. One year ago, we nested after having an endless pic nic in the wood to prevent the first construction works of the CIGEO project. From the 19 to 26 of June 2017, we want to celebrate this all year by having an endless birthday party into the woods !

We’ve been told that Lejuc wood can be evicted anytime, and the owls living there won’t survive summer 2017. This is what the authorities want us and need us to believe, but we won’t play their game. This won’t be a celebration of nostalgia : we want to create a new spark of life in the forest, new links between people, new practical attacks.

Two permanent reception services will be set at the south lookout and the north barricade, on monday morning, For all week, there’ll be self-managed camps (we’ll make a space for transsexual and gays people), constructions activities (solar showers, shacks for discussion groups, barricades, …), self-training workshops (climbing, bolas, flexible yurts, healthcare, chemistry,…), discussions on the autonomous struggle perspectives in France and elsewhere, some reading next to the fire, actions against police controls, role playing games, and obviously : accoustic music party on the week-end !

Come with all things you need (tent, sleeping bag, construction tools and equipment, dishes…) Even if we’ll cook together, bring some food to be independent as much as possible. We really hope that this birthday party will open up new possibilities for all summer. So let’s be as many as we can !

 

BOOM BOOM BOOM ! I WANT YOU IN MY WOOD !

The owls of Bure

And if we are evicted before :

  • Meeting on the day at 6pm at the House of Resistance
  • Convergence towards Bure on the following days
  • Reoccupation of the forest on the following weeks
  • Call-out for decentralized actions against the promoters and contractors of CIGEO (VINCI, EIFFAGE, EDF, ANDRA, AREVA, CEA…)
