10:52am They seem to be organizing the cops on the side of the D81 to disperse in the fields and try to stop people from reaching  fosses noire across the fields. Let’s be creative, they are too small minded to succeed in blocking us.

10:35am The cops have returned to Mancelière Richard. We want more details on the presence in La paquelais and vigneux-de-bretagne. It seems to be possible to cross  the field since people are still joining us this morning! Thank you to all.

10:04am Traffic information: The cops are no longer in mancelière Richard, it is again possible (for the moment) to go through there.

09:55am  Confrontation, picnic and workshops: The confrontation continues to Lama faché, we hear a lot of grenades. People take turns in different places to follow the movements of the bleusaille. It is also organized elsewhere in the area to better accommodate people who want to join us. A group home is formed. And workshops to allow everyone to find actions that correspond to them are put in place. At the moment it’s manual activity: come learn how to make painting eggs (at camp level of white hair).

We take this opportunity to remind you that a picnic will be held this afternoon at the cheveux camping, in the field in front of the Fosses Noirs at 13h. We will certainly advise on the moment depending on the position of the gas cloud that unfolds for a few days on the hedgerow. Welcome to all.

09:45am “If I can not dance it’s not my revolution” Emma Goldman (if I can not dance, it’s not my revolution). Here we dance, despite the clouds of lachrymos.

Traffic information (Google translation): 

D81 North blocked, also south (nothing passes, not even a bike, must go through the fields) 
D42 blocked by a north and south riot barrier 
No circulation between ardilleres and Oak of the perriers + prohibition to circulate between _ Oak of the Pointers and pink house. 
GMs have settled at the crossing of the barred road to NDDL and Grandchamp des Fontaines 
Gendarmerie vehicles present at the paquelais. 
A priori, the mancelière richard passes tjs (between paquelais and vigneux).

So, you can always put your cars in front of our barricades and continue on foot!

Be careful, they are potentially searching for bags and vehicles. Think of the max to ask the papers that authorizes them to do that, and if possible to take pictures and send them to us!


08:26am Cops positioned in the field north of lama, but not in the lama field because people remove debris from the cabin. Several explosions of grenades, but it’s pretty quiet.

Barrier riot deployed at Boissière, north of the crossroad direction NDDL.

07:14am All axes are not yet blocked if you want to join the area, need world around the lama or the cops are offensive, just like their grenades.

D42 blocked but other possible access

07:04am  and the detonations continue. 
gas firing too

in Le Monde, we learn that 4 cops were self-injured by the sending of an offensive grenade, including a serious injury to the foot. In addition, they do not even know how to shoot.

It should be remembered that these grenades, which contain 30 g of TNT, are extremely dangerous. In our country, “two seriously injured people had to be evacuated to hospital, and four people were treated for serious injuries.

Most of the injuries were caused by dislocated grenades (including the face or chest), LBD firing (again at chest level), and tear gas fire. This list does not take into account the exposure to the very many tear gas that were fired all day. ” Balance of the medic team Tuesday, April 10, 2018
