Nantes, France: Against the airport and the Cop21 – Resistance and colour!

While the multinational Vinci is an official partner of the “COP21 Solutions: Come live the climate experience” exhibition at the Grand Palais in Paris, providing two conferences there (one of which is co-presented by an executive director of Veolia), to explain to the public at which point their approach is “green”, sustainable and eco-responsible; its Airport of Grand Ouest subsidiary has just relaunched eviction procedures against all inhabitants of the ZAD, to be able to start building its “Environmentally High Quality” airport.

Faced with this obsession of concreting our living spaces, a group of paint-artists meanwhile decided in the night of Friday 4th to Saturday 5th December 2015 to cheerfully redecorate the gloomy greyish SOGEA Atlantique building, another of multiple Vinci subsidiaries, in Saint-Herblain [Nantes outskirts].

We hope that these new colours appeal to management and will tenderise their manners.

Furthermore, any civil engineering company wishing to see their local offices repainted by a team of enthusiastic volunteers, can send their application by responding to tenders from the Loire-Atlantique Prefecture.

We promise you a discreet night-time fulfilment for a result of the most beautiful effect.
