NDDL Thursday, April 26 : Early reports from the situation on the ZAD – Cops are attacking again

10:14am The cops are now well on the way to Suez road. They passed the Lascars barricade and l’ambazada and are almost stationary at the eastern entrance of champ de Kazh Koat and in the forest.It is not known how far the police action extends north into the forest.

Machines and cops are also deployed on the route des Fosses. We know that they close the trenches in front of Youpi but no more details for the moment.

08h57min : As the explosions of grenades assault our eardrums, and the teargas make us cry, and the armoured vehicles and the obedience-machines [cops] that accompany them are deployed in their hundreds along the roads of the ZAD, the media dare to speak of a “long truce granted to the ZAD “. A fine kind of truce in the localities of West-France !

08h42min : The police vehicles (one armoured car, accompanied by a hudred horribles in riot gear), are driving down the barricades on Route des Fosses / Mancelière from the north. They are now at the level of the garden of the Grée. Apparently these people are accompanied by a sub-prefect. Never believe what the cops tell you : they said they would not come in if we did not attack them. Which, on the part of people who arrive with an armored and 100 super armed horribles, is pretty cheeky. The armoured car is now heading back to the north. Meanwhile, the cops are disking the Lascars barricade. There are about 50 of them on the road, and we also find a good pack of these turds splattered around the forest of Rohanne. No more precise indication of their position at the moment.

They are pointless and noxious (well, not for everyone). I vomit them. Good day to you who are reading this.

08h27min : The cops are 5 meters from Lascars, on the road and in the forest of Rohanne. They are firing GLI F4 grenades. An armoured vehicle and foot cops are arriving from the Route des Fosses Noire, direction La Saulce.

08h21min : Excerpt from the interview of Edward Philippe, the Prime Sinister : “Some occupants have declared : 28 occupants have accepted the hand extended by the state They did it late because they did not believe we were determined.” “If those who wish to enter into legality, namely to register for the MSA and pay their taxes, like all other farmers, then they will be able to move in. The others are destined to leave the land.” “On the 14th of May, the Prefect convenes the commission which will study the files of those who want to enter common law. Those who do not wish to leave the place will then have to leave.” The journalist told him that the operation has so far cost more than 5 million euros. “It’s true that it’s expensive […] but we face people of a very large degree of violence.”
