The Government has just announced that the evictions of the ZAD at Notre-Dame-des-Landes in fRance, will start on April 9 and that more than 3,000 soldiers and policemen will be deployed. Personally victimized by state racism or by supporting those who experienced it, some of us are already targets of state racism and will be the most exposed to the evictions at the ZAD in Notre-Dame-des-Landes and the other repressions that will follow.
On the ZAD we act directly for the access for all to the housing and the nourishing earth, for other social bonds then those based on the economic capacity. The big useless and imposed projects ruin the planet and move people, in our neighborhoods, our villages, but also and especially in the most exploited countries leading to forced migrations towards the imperialist countries where they are still the most oppressed.
To repel the attacks of state and racist repression, all skills and tactics will be useful. We urgently need a contribution of the techniques of resistance and organization developed in our cities, neighborhoods and villages of France and overseas countries that have undergone permanent military and police occupation for decades.
Let’s make April 9th a celebration of solidarity and resistance of the people and the oppressed on the ZAD, in our neighborhoods and villages.
This struggle is not a choice, but a historical constraint and we can not lose it.
