The void is not a bad thing: On the nonstate of the #ZAD

French authorities announced the eviction of the ZAD. Authorities will start with the eviction tomorrow, April 9. More information here and here.

“I don’t think the ZADistes would say they represent the people, I think they would say they’re on the side of the environment. That’s a whole new actor in the situation – the land, the animals who live there, the ability to grow food on that land. Between the state, the people, the land, and the corporations, there’s still a power struggle on the ZAD – where I think in most other countries, the corporation and the state have won that struggle.”

Writer Pearl Ahrens traces the boundaries between the French state and the ZAD, a zone à défendre – an anarchic, occupied space held against the advance of capitalist development by a convergence of farmers, environmentalists, crusties and normal people living a new form of everyday life in struggle against (and sometimes beyond) the state.

Pearl wrote the article A Free Zone Unlike Any Other for Salvage.
