07:37pm We go out now for today. Thanks for reading.

07:00pm Radio Klaxon: Info about what happened at the station: in the forest it’s a real carnage: they brought a big mechanical caterpillar and so now there’s a road instead of the trail with the compressed earth … You are nasty villains !!! Well if not, the cops are from the Domains and so when the bad guys are gone, the cats are dancing !!! Good news from the legal team in the comments: “a camerade who had 1 month of pre-trial detention came out after his trial this afternoon, he was sentenced to 6 months, 5 of which were suspended.”

06:45pm Radio Klaxon: a dozen police vans coming from la ZAD have just arrived at Cassiopé car park NDDL which is booked for the whole weekend …

06:20pm 50 police vans, cars and armored vehicles are leaving Pré-Faillite towards the Temple. Small recap of the day: see below. Reminder: Especially for those who want to make believe that there were no problems: One person seriously injured during clashes at the la Saulce crossing. The injured person had to be evacuated.

06:20pm legal team report for yesterday Thursday May 17: Two people were arrested: 1 was released and 1 other no news but the rumor mill says that this person is in the hospital. Today Friday 18: Nine people were arrested: 3 people released and 6 others of which we do not know where they are: We need information.

06:08pm Radio Klaxon: There are cops in the fields east of the d81 at the height of the Domains.

05:09pm Radio Klaxon: 20 minutes ago a truck with cavity blocks arrived at the Domaines. Probably to seal the house off with a wall inside: it is always possible to go there to look, or what you want… As if… people won’t re-occupy it because of a wall…

04:00pm [Legal team]: Provisional report for today: Between 3 and 5 arrests (at least 3), two people released, one of them because of formal errors.

03:55pm Saturday May 19 14:00 Organize and rebuild la ZAD. Go to the info points at Bellevue, Wardine and la Grée. More info (French):

03:35pm Sunday May 20, 12:00 at Bellevue: Protests against the expulsions and who knows what other kind of actions and cultural events at la ZAD… Spring has come, time to rebuild.

Infotraflic (Traflic.. traffic info about the cops): The military presence on the zone seems to be less this afternoon, but it is only temporary. While the destruction and expulsion were operations to guarantee a good propaganda coup ‘for the national gendarmerie (“clean”, “fast” and “effective”), they will stay and spend the next days to clear the rubbish of the many destroyed cabins. They will also guard the houses that were evicted. Which means that the GM may still be present in mass in the coming days and that they will be accompanied by many machines, skips and trucks, as many potential targets when opportunities arise. A bit of daring, opportunism and creativity that this does not happen with impunity!

And it could start this afternoon as we are told that dump trucks are in the vicinity of Chene des Perrieres, and other construction trucks with blocks have passed through Fay de Bretagne.

02:15pm Cops keep on provoking the community picnic at St. Jean.

01:50pm Radio Klaxon: Bellevue asks for gas (to cook) for the kitchen – If there is too much it will be useful for other places!

01:42pm Radio Klaxon: Message for people taking pictures, especially on barricades: it’s important and even obligatory to ask the peoples on the picture if it’s ok for them to be on, and it should be a priority that we do not have faces of the people on the images. Thank you!

01:34pm Nantes: Appointment tonight at 06:00pm (18:00) B17 to organize a casserole in front of the place of the repression. More info:

01:21pm Radio Klaxon: Denial: About the statements by the cops on the Freuzière: No there was no fire in the Freuzière but there was one in the Préfaillite, but the fire was not by the inhabitants: the journalists were kept at l’eccart during the police intervention, there were broken windows and so on. and so the fire …

01:20pm Cops walking into the picnic at Saint-Jean-du-Tertre

12:08pm The six people arrested following the graffiti and the burned backhoe in Poitiers in support of the ZAD left GAV Monday night, May 14. Five of them were summoned to the court. They are being prosecuted for refusing fingerprinting and DNA sampling. Neither the hearings (they kept silent), nor the searches allowed the prosecution to pursue them for sabotage.
