18.1 – 24.1.2016: Loads of JCDecaux bus stops along one of the busiest roads in Helsinki were painted with ZAD slogans.

There won’t be an airport!
This Friday, January 22nd, at dawn, people decided to blockade the road passing through the middle of the construction site for the new Eurorennes train station and in front of the women’s prisons’ main entrance.

This morning, we’re […]

To the defenders of the ZAD,
Solidarity from anarchists in so-called ‘Melbourne, Australia’- the never-ceded indigenous land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, stolen and occupied by the genocidal settler-colonial state.
In response to recent […]
The mobilisation in recent days has been tremendous: thanks to the strength of the demonstration on Nantes’ outskirts, but also due to the actions and gatherings multiplying in dozens of other French cities. It’s clear that the anti-airport movement is denser and livelier than ever. This is because it’s become emblematic of so many […]
Some graffiti on the walls of Cali Univsersity [University of Valle] in Colombia (carried out on January 15th 2016).

Whilst the cases of the last legal occupants of the Zad were being judged this Wednesday [January 13th 2016], we set out to repaint the red police station facade of the Beaujoire neighbourhood, in the purest tradition of Nantes-style greenwashing.
We’re not fooled: we know well that every court defeat […]
On Saturday 9th January 2016 at 9am, the motorway slip-road to Toulouse airport, as well as the tram, were blockaded with help from flaming barricades.

During the day of Wednesday 9th December, tags were placed in the corridors facing the offices of GECCO (Vertebrate Conservation and Ecology Group) on the ground floor in building F of Angers science university.
It now reads “zad everywhere”, “research = collaborator”.

Over the past month the Prime Minister, President, and pro-airport lobby have been increasingly vocal and clear about their desire to evict the zad and begin work on the airport as soon as they can. The time frame of January-March is recurrent in their public declarations. These are threats, not inevitabilities.
The anti-airport movement is […]

To the developers, the ZAD is merely a ‘deferred development zone’ since decades. To fighters, this is a zone to be defended (Zone À Défendre). Either way, the space is located in the countryside north of Nantes, in France. According to the Power, it should make way for industrialist plans, […]
