In Montreal, while representatives from 191 governments met in talks under the umbrella of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), a UN agency to discuss “security environments” in international aviation, we took action to expose their hypocrisy and affirm our solidarity with the ZAD of Notre-Dame-des-Landes (NDDL).
On the eve of the end of the week of international mobilization against the airport NDDL and it’s world, we held banners for half and hour in support of the ZAD at the ICAO Headquarters, to disrupt, if only for moments, their barren universe. The ZAD in NDDL is not only a foot in the mouth of the French government, AGO Vinci, and all the shareholders of this airport project, but also an example of autonomy, self-defense and a breach of their attempt to commodify everything around them.
Threats are intensifying against the ZAD and we need to take note of the situation, despite the ocean between us; to affirm our active solidarity and full support to this gratifying example of resistance whose ethincs and objectives go beyond the grove itself! Expulsion or not, we’ll be there to support the ZAD as much as we can, because it represents for us one of the greatest signs of hope and inspiration of our time, not only for our political struggles and the living earth, but also on all aspects of the existing (food autonomy, social relationships, love, everyday life and others)!
VINCI, RESISTANCE, SABOTAGE
