New decrees affecting circulation in Bure and Mandres-en-Barrois

* update Saturday 3rd: police controls in Ribeaucourt, Bure, Mandres, Bonnet and Thonnance-les-Joinvilles. They search the vehicles and control the ID of all passengers but let them go afterwards. The appeal against the decrees was rejected by the court, so they are still valid.

The Meuse prefecture is trying to obstruct the convergence towards Bure since the eviction of the forest and especially for the mob weekend starting on Friday 2nd. Four new decrees has been declared. They are active from March 2 (today) to March 5 :

  • A decree to ban demonstrations on the territory of Bure, Mandres-en-Barrois and adjacent villages.
  • A decree to ban parking and circulation of vehicles in the area of Bure and Mandres-en-Barrois, together with the ban of pedestrians and vehicles on the road from Bonnet to the Lejuc wood.
  • Two decrees to ban flying in the area.

However, everything is going well!

The circulation of pedestrians is still legal in the village of Bure and Mandres-en-Barrois (except around the forest, see previous decrees – French only).

From now on, absolutely no police control happened in the name of these decrees. We should be careful though (also considering the decree against the transport of material – French only).

 

If you get controlled on the way here, call the House of Resistance at 09 54 10 57 11, so we can update this article. For sure, don’t pay the fines. Our lawyers contested these decrees in court already, we should get the result Saturday before noon.

Friday 2nd : a police control happens in Thonance-les-Joinville (outside of the zone affected by the decrees). The cops also made a salivary test against drugs.

In any case, we invite you all to join us! The preparations for this weekend are going well. We won’t let them stop us!

The complete text of the decrees can be read here, in French only.
