Last night at 3:00 am at night The French Military Police entered the ZAD de Notre Dam and begun a violent eviction of the Zone. Barricades were lit on fire and resistance put up, slowing up the destruction of many spaces that started early in the morning and continues as this is being written. The response has been swift in France and around the world spontaneous demonstrations took place all over the country with the fiercest street battles taking place in Nantes.
The call for support and solidarity continues for the ZAD solidarity actions and demonstrations in front of French Consulates and Embassies.
A large demo is scheduled today at 6 PM in front of the prefecture in Nantes and at French Consulate in South Kensington. Two among countless demos and actions that will be taking place at this time.
Big Thank You to all the members of the resistance for making ZAD a reality, an inspiration, connection and nexus with numerous other struggles and a historical mark on our times. Being an anarchist and an ecological activists today continues a long tradition of many fighters and revolutionaries helping with countless other and regional struggles world wide while fighting margilization, criminalization and repression at home. ZAD has been that home for many of us through out the years.
They can try to take out large portions of the ZAD but they will never take the ZAD out of us!!!
