Follow in live the run of the 4th of March, second day of the Intercommittees.
Record of the day.
All day long discussions have been held on various topicsm from how we organize together with the committees, what form the struggle should take, or about concrete organisations of antinuclear camps.
In parallel, a walk in direction of the wood Lejuc has been held with a hundred persons. There was no problem during the trip despite the heavy police presence, 2 helicopter, the ANDRA airplane (the decrees forbidding the flights over the area didn’t apply for everyone), 2 motorbikes. This heavy presence has maintained the walk far away from the Lejuc wood. At the end, the heated riot cops has decided to charge, 9 custodies followed. One of the persons has been released after half an hour. They keep maintaining the pressure to Mandres, still shooting tear gas grenades in the village and private gardens.
8 persons are still in custody and will spend the night at police stations. There is a will from the repressive forces to make difficult and hard the possibility to defend them because they have been put in 6 different police stations in the Meuse, with hundreds of kilometers: Saint Mihiel, Revigny, Sivry sur Meuse, Verdun, Etain, Vigneulles. It makes complicated the access to the lawyers and to do support gatherings.
The meals have gone well in Mandres, a party will be held tonight. The repressive presence didn’t prevent the 37 committees or future committees of leaving with lot of desires and projects of struggle!
