Statement by ZAD about mobilizations for mobilization and reconstruction in case of new evictions.
This is a long read by one of the inhabitants of the Zad, about the the fortnight rollercoaster of rural riots that has just taken place to evict the liberated territory of the zad. It’s been incredibly intense and hard to find a moment to write, but we did our best. This is simply one viewpoint, there are over 1000 people on the zone at the moment and every one of them could tell a different story. Thank you for all the friends and comrades who helped by sharing their stories, rebel spirits and lemon juice against the tear gas.
On the 19th of April, a few of us were not only informed without much notice, but also by chance that there was a callout for a meeting at Le Camps des Chevaux Blancs. The discussion was around the state of negociations after the refusal by the government of the COP globale*. This is yet another attempt in a long list of attempts to destroy the collective running of the ZAD, this time thanks to a submission of statements for individual projects, nominative yet inter-dependent.
Yes they are strong, they come with all this equipment, all this gaz, all this pollution and all this physical and psychological violence, and still the zad resists, still people continue to forge bonds and liberate space while facing the fascist state with his crushing boots that is trying to devour our life’s and environments.
