One day more to "securize the zone".. In re-reading Press Océan today we find a chief cop weaping about ZAD which forced 80 military men more to be mobilized on the zone since 2 years, and this men would have been usefull for something else , for example fight against roberry. All the burglars of the zone listen : now it’s your time to manifest us solidarity ! 17h35 : people who wanted to rebuild the Préfaillite could’nt do it because of the cops. Apparently the comrads could go away without problems 16h10 : Destruction of Gaité is beginning. The roof is quickly destroyed and soon there is only crumblings from this house left. It was the first one to be occupied after Camp Action Climat of 2009 which had given a new energy of occupation. A dozen of people were living there and would welcome our friends visitors of la ZAD. It was a lively place, warm and far to be unhealthy. The house would have 100 years in 2014. Concerning the warehouse attached, equally destroyed, it welcolmed a freeshop (full) and sometimes concerts or meetings. Mort aux vaches !!! 16h05 : Regarding the 3 persons arrested yesterday at noon near Fosses noires : they’ve accepted to pass through immediat appearance and will be released in a few minutes, people are going to catch them.
