July 25th: Music has charms to soothe the savage breast

July 25th, all is so quiet and peaceful in Bure, except the regular and endless healthy walk of the police. Therefore, a friend decided to sit on the road to play accordion and sing for us and the drivers passing by, offering a scene where our proud gendarmes, to make sure they will still be able to drive in front of our house as many times as before, came with percussions with 3 cars to deal with this very difficult situation.

Our happy friend keeps singing and playing, disregarding them. Nevertheless, the police keeps insisting : as the lady has to get out of the road for her own safety, they won’t move until she does first. This road does not seem to be anything else but a private road for mass police transit, watched by the so familiar helicopter.

As they don’t get any other answer but beautiful songs, they decide to take the musician to the police station in order to check her identity.

Well… It seems that for the police, “public road” means “military road reserved to the gendarmes”.

July 23th: Ring around the rosy (first experiment).

The love for science thus have no limit. after he yesterday mesured the exact frequency of police rotations, professor Marie-Pierre Abidou and his team watched all day long for viable experiment subjects. the aime of the day? studying their reaction facing a visual swinging stimulus, in this case a merry-go-round pompom.

To try and make them participate more willingly to the experiment, the protocol foresaw the attribution of a free tour to those who would catch the toy. without success. police once again distinguished itself with a boorish clumsiness that recalls the one of the prefecture. militarize more and more, day after day, a territory already sickened by the contempt they’ve treated with since the beginnings of CIgéo, is it objectively a good idea. that is to be seen.

From there, the Professor and his colleagues doesn’t throw in the sponge and will restart their experiments tomorrow.


Feedback from the 14th of July: no table is illegal

A little feedback from the Burian evening the 14th of july. featuring Dubois, a furniture, and hummus!

Party soft

The air was warm in this 14th of July evening, and the inhabitants of the house of resistance, joined with their neighbors from the surrounding villages, as well as the cyclist of the Ecotopia biketour were happily celebrating the last drawbacks of CIGEO and the pleasure of being together.

It’s the ailment caused by the 3856th cop patrol of the day passing by, a recall of the constant intimidation that is the stat of militarization of the territory, that steered the guests to install their table on the bright new roadway facing the house of resistance, to revel and allow the next patrols to try a new routay”. After opposing them a cordial but firm refusal, assuring that the table would be moved to let tractors and combine harvesters (word swiftly and steadily keeped all night long), the party continued in a good mood with a bowling-boules game, as the next patrol skirted the house, causing a few laughs.

In Bure, new risks of eviction, big demo in August !

Against police pressure, we are calling for people to come in Bure starting now and for the big demo on August 15th!

The poster reads: “the Lejus forest is once against threatened by ANDRA and iIs guard dogs ? Let’s inhabit it and defend it. If they evict us, we’ll evict them!”

For a little while now the police pressure has intensified around Bure. On June 30th, 6 police vans harassed the north and south entrances to the forest. In the south it looked like 30 cops in lines with helmets and shields 100m from the barricade. In the north a line of 10 cops and 2 cops in a bush near the barricade on their knees pointing a flashball at people. They all left around 7pm. Same on July 1st, 4 vans in the south, a line of 15 cops, barricade set on fire. In the villages around random controls, ID checks at the police station,  pressure on locals, cops running after people through the fields and arresting them with their guns out (yep, guns)… A new intensity for the typical harrassment strategy since the week of action in June – looks like they’re trying to do even worse than they did last summer.

For a few weeks now 70 cops have been settling inside the laboratory. “We are here to stay and we’ll see each other again soon” did they proudly inform us.

Gerard longuet and his acolytes lick the prime minister’s boots, begging for a new Gendarmerie post in Montiers-sur-Saulx, for once raising th spectre of big bad hooded terrorists harrassing the « local population. Policemen themselves cried, craving for action. This tension strategy, ressembles, first and for most, a psychological operation : it aims to exhaust us and make us slip.
