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).
