Press release, November 13th 2012

Tuesday 13 November 2012

For immediate circulation We learned today from the press that a security guard was allegedly attacked during the night of the 12th/13th of November by a group of about twenty people, in front of the place name “La pointe”. Because this place until recently occupied before it was bricked up since the beginning of the wave of expulsions on Tuesday October 16th, the Prefecture instantly denounced an action from the opponents. It also took the opportunity to re-address its endless speech to split up the historic opponents and the allegedly violent newcomers. We would like to point out once again that, in the field, this dissociation does not exist and we are all fighting together against the airport project. We also would like to remind that, so far, we have claimed responsibility for all of our solidarity actions linked to the fight on the ZAD. This has not been the case for tonight’s action. It is therefore not possible for us to say anything on the issue. The possibility of a manipulation seems a possible explanation for us, as this action comes at a perfect time to divert the attention away from what truly matters: the preparation for the re-occupation demonstration of November 17th, and, in general the growing fight against the airport project.
