D+6 after the beginning of the eviction of the wood

The preparations for the coming weekend are going well, everyone is helping. It’s gonna be two days of madness. Warning, the prefecture decrees are still going on. Few controls and vehicle searches occured today around Bure.

2.30pm: The cops are searching a vehicle in front of the House of Resistance. People are going out to confront the cops, who therefore used gases. Pressure strategy.

Nota Bene: Many of our publications are linked to the police, since we have been cohabitating with them for a few months already – even more these last few days – which drags along all the problems involved with this proximity. But do not worry. A lot is being done. We are not only fighting with the cops. 

Day+5 after the attempt to evict the forest

We are Tuesday, 27th of February, 5 days after the attempt of eviction.

 

We know today some neighboors are intimitaded by the police to perform house searches if they don’t give acces to their property to the police.

3.40pm: The situation is stable, many cops in Bure.

3pm: Few friends threw water on the armed cops, spying on the House. A hat has been stolen.  A lot of cops are coming.

 

2.33pm: some cops are in Bure near the resistance House. A helicopter circling over a group of friends who came back from the forest.

12-2pm: 30 peoples went to the forest, most of them managed to get in. Minor confrontation with the police, badly organised and equipped, and people in the fields.  The Andra’s machines are working in the forest

9-10pm:  Following the prefectoral decree only forbidding the circulation on the road, 3 friends went to the forest to film and take pictures from the fields near the south of the forest.

A covered military truck parked near the Chaufour. The occupiers shouted to friends from afar without intervening. Friends came closer to the south entry, always on the fields, and filming. The police presence at the south is rather scarce, only 2 trucks. The cops didn’t move either, friends are not worried.

At the south, a machine took  fragments of the wall and pipes, in a big container.  Smokes are visible (maybe the last part of the south barricade burning).

An escorted walk in the wood

An escorted walk in the wood on Monday afternoon

 

Today, thanks to a permission to walk around the Bois Lejuc for 24 hours, some friends could walk « freely » ( that is after an id check and escorted by the police) on the roman road  near the Bois Lejuc. The new prefectoral decree , which bans every circulation begins on Tuesday 27th at 6 am until the 5th of March.

We could observe near the forest and took pictures. We could seen the damage made by machines on the living places in the forest.  In the south, we couldn’t see anything left of the barricades. In the Souht-East, the site has been cleared  from all previous constructions. In the north, huts remain piled up around the roman road.

On this morning, the 26th of February, mechanical shovel have been spotted in the forest; what are they doing? They are cutting trees down to supply the furnaces of the ANDRA and to summon demonic beasts from the Depths!
