  • Testimony received since February 22nd

    27 February, by zadist

    Testimony received since February 22nd : I was at the demo, Saturday in Nantes, and I was taken hostage by unacceptable acts of violence. From the morning, barricades were erected in the center of the city, which disturbed public order and prevented the demonstration from following it’s planned path. Only one hour after the beginning of the march, the crowd found itself blocked by one of these barricades and the flying projectiles which were soon coming from two sides. From that moment (...)

  • In the grove, and elsewhere, resistance and sabotage

    25 February, by zadist

    The 16th of October 2012, first day of "Operation César", a failed attempt to evict us from the zone, the prefect of Loire-Atlantique, Christian de Lavernée declared to mainstream media: "If the state can’t take back the zone, then we should be worried for the state". The state should be very worried and should die by its cause! One year and a half later, we are still here. Our rage and determination stay intact because of this so called democracy, totally dedicated to the cause and interest (...)

  • ZAD, France: This is not a camp

    27 January, by zadist

    Following various announcements for a possible start of construction of the Notre Dame des Landes airport, a series of articles were released in the press that pretty much regurgitated copy-pasted clichés. One of these articles caught our attention notably. In almost all the articles that would preach the possible eviction and the final catastrophe of ZAD we read “200 people, alter-globalists, continue to camp in ZAD.” The figure might seem rough. The term “alter-globalists” is not a term that (...)

  • Speech of inhabitants during the Forum against useless projects

    7 August 2013, by zadist

    Friends from here, friends from elsewhere- Everyone knows that a territory is defended with its inhabitants, and that a territory emptied of it’s population is easy to conquer. It’s anyways for this reason that a callout was made public on mayday 2008 for occupying the land injustly appropriated by the promoters of this project. The strategy paid off. The bulldozer of progress doesn’t pass as easily as planned. It’s now 2012 and the works have been heavily delayed. Our common enemies (...)

  • Coming to the ZAD...or not?

    16 June 2013, by zadist

    Contribution to the discussions about the welcome-space Welcoming visitors has been part of life on the ZAD for years, the reverberations made by the struggle against the airport and its world since the attempted evictions last autumn makes us scared that the ZAD will become the activist holiday destination this summer. It is a divisive question currently being discussed amongst the occupants. We felt the need to share “our analysis” so everyone could draw the conclusions they find most (...)

  • the collective individual

    18 March 2013, by zadist

    I wrote this into respons of what goes around and with me on the zad. Everyone has his reality, bagage to care and fights to fight. This is how i ’sea’ change. i see this dark and twisted society created by a manipulating minority and accepted by a blindfolded majority that is supporting this grotesque insanity under control of powerful illusions and feared brutality they are silently receiving shiny objects for their slavery automatically forced to kill themselfs by corrupting their (...)

  • Final warning !!

    16 March 2013, by zadist

    This text is the work of a few people from the ZAD who were present at some of the clashes with the police. It is an analysis of our experiences, and aims to both inform all those who are willing to come to help us defend our home, and also to share experiences of many people resisting police operations in one place. We hope it will help all those who do not have very much experience of this kind of thing to be better prepared to cope with the violence of the state, and especially to more (...)

Since the 1970’s, elites in the (...)

  • La ZAD is not a story that is told, it is a story that is lived

    18 January 2013, by zadist

     La ZAD is not a story that is told, it is a story that is lived. You are sleeping, this is a dream. After an hour and a half on the road, we arrive at Notre-Dame-des-Landes. We park in a small parking lot, across from the town hall. A graffitied road sign loudly proclaims “ZAD”; we are not very far. If, regarding urbanisation, the acronym ZAD means “Zone d’Amenagement Differé”(Zone of Deferred Development), for us it takes different meanings. The 2000 hectares upon which Vinci plans to (...)
