Call from the Assembly of Uses facing threat of imminent evictions on the zad.

Thursday 5 April 2018

*On **February**10th, few weeks after the airport project was dropped, dozens of thousands of people converged again to Notre-Dame-des-Landes to root the avenir of the zad. Since then, the assemblies of uses(*) have laid the foundations of this project through the beginning of a dialogue with government representatives. During this transition phase, a first global collective convention has been proposed by the movement to take the fields and habitations in charge. But the government still threaten to evict some of these habitations. An operation mobilizing thousands of policemen and women is announced for Monday 9th April. We denounce the double-dealing of the government which announced it wants a « peaceful and reasonable » evolution of the situation while planning an eviction operation which is moreover illegal. We can’t accept that inhabitants who preserved the bocage will be evicted tomorrow. We can’t accept that habitations and spaces of activities which have nurtured the experience of the zad and are necessary to its future will be destroyed by a new police operation. We invite those who support the avenir of the zad to organize accordingly!*

*In case of evictions of habitations, we call for different types of answers on several geographical scales.*

On the zad and around :

- call to contribute to the workshops organized in april.

- call to come defend the zone.

We already decided that except in case of police intervention, the roads would stay circulating for the inhabitants, the peasants and neighbours. In case of police attack, we might block them if necessary. We call supports to act accordingly. Welcome spaces will be organized on the zone and around.

- call in case of destruction to come rebuild the zone.

Outside the zad :

- call for gatherings and occupations the very night of the evictions on city places, in front of municipalities and prefecture and police stations.

/The Assembly of Uses, Tuesday 3rd April. /

(*) The Assemblies of Uses have been implemented in summer 2017 on the zad of Notre-Dame-des-Landes.

Their goal is to think and build the collective organization of this territory according to the 6 points for the avenir of the zad ( Yesterdaynight, this Assemblyhas decided to launch a call to face the imminent evictions on the zad.
