Solidarity from Minneapolis, USA

Over the weekend a banner was hung in so-called Minneapolis reading Defend la ZAD. We take this opportunity to send a message of strength to the ZAD occupants on the eve of their eviction. The autonomous zone established in France has been the source of endless inspiration for rebels near and far—it will live on, regardless of what happens on Monday.

04:30pmTo join us at the camp of white hair at 17h: It seems that the best is to park on the d81, south of the crossroads of the saulce, then walk to the camp “white hair” (in front of the pits black). It is still possible to come by Vigneux de Bretagne. According to our information there are cops: on all the D281 Ardillères Wood Rignoux to Mancelière Richard Frenelière and Carrefour de la Saulce is blocked.

04:20pmThe shed of 100 noms has just been destroyed. For now, no other cabin has been affected.

03:28pm 13 tractors vigilant against the cops since 15 hours on the D81 to ardillères.

03:14pmEvictions, how to react?

-at 17h on the camp of the white hair (in front of the Fosses noires)

-at 18h tonight in front of the prefecture of Nantes
-at 9pm tonight at la Wardineto in public.

Further details to tell you how to access the zad despite the police presence

03:13pmNo more: the cabin is currently under attack. Little by little the state destroys our habitats, hoping to erase our lives. It only reinforces our rage and anger!

— Zone À Défendre (@ZAD_NDDL) 9. April 2018

That #ZAD in #NDDL place is under occupation right now by the state’s armed bureaucrats (also known as police) has less to do with some legal dispute about the land (there have been zero trials about the people they are evicting). It’s to prevent this place from inspiring hope.

— Mᥑᥣtᥱ Mᥑ𐌢 (@MalteBlom) 9. April 2018

Where else in Europe do you find people inhabiting & taking care of land roughly size of 1650 soccer fields without the state? Nowhere. The #ZAD in #NDDL is a living example of how co-existence is possible with other means than money, wage labour and jails.
