Alternative Maniax Radio Show #25: To Squat, to occupy

Hi everyone!

We have a testimony for you tonight: Peg use to squat and he’s also actually living in the ZAD, an autonomous active space in Nantes, France.

It’s been 40 years that the old and new residents are fighting against the airport project which is supposed to take place where so many people are living for so many years. They plan to evict people from their houses and lands. The resistance is still on. They call out for help by occupying and defend the place: the more people it will be the best it is! Just click on the link to their website for more information!

“The resistance is growing. Since Plane Stupid last visited the ZAD (Zone a Defendre – the proposed site of the airport), the number of occupied spaces has rocketed from one to about 16. In fact, no one seems entirely sure how many people are now living here, preparing for battle: all that is certain is that it is growing constantly and people are prepared to put up a big fight. Together with those set to lose their homes and land, activists from across France and the world have been taking over sites bought up by the council to make way for the airport, and transforming them into living examples of the world they want to live in. There’s a bakery, which turns out enough bread twice a week to feed the whole ZAD, a bicycle workshop, a skipped supermarket which seems never to run out, a kitchens collective, an internet cafe, loads of chickens, herb gardens, treehouses, and, of course, vegetables.”
