Eviction of farms in France. Struggle against airpost continues

The occupyers and other activists in ZAD have sent out a call for help. It is always possible to find a place to sleep and you can stay as long as you want. It is good though to bring a warm sleeping bag, a matress, tent, clothes, a raincoat and if possible walky talkies, climbing gear and other materials which are useful during actions.

The main one here is Vinci, an international operating French company specialised in building high ways and other large infrastructure projects. It is also involved in the building of the very controversial highway though the Khimski forest close to Moscow. Also in the Netherlands Vinci has several  subsidiaries and financial interests in construction companies and projects  One of them is the building of the Tweede Coentunnel, a fanatic way to increase car traffic in the Amsterdam region by doubling the capacity of a high way.
