USA, Harrisburg, PA: Solidarity Action for la ZAD
The following communique and photo was anonymously sent to It’s Going Down.
The communique reads:
In the early hours of the 8th of June we immobilized an earth mover in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania at a new development project.
This small gesture was taken in solidarity with la ZAD of Notre-Dam-des-Landes, France, where rebels have fought to maintain an autonomous zone, free from the state and it’s plans for almost a decade.
The ZAD was first occupied 9 years ago to prevent the construction of a recently abandoned airport project and has inspired eco-rebels across the world, especially it’s inspiring defense against ‘Operation Ceaser’, a massive eviction attempt in late 2012.
Once again la ZAD is facing a fresh wave of repression, in the form of intense both police violence and a recuperative negotiation process which seeks to tame and legalize the uncontrolled zone.
For the defense of territory against the interests of capital
For sabotage against the instruments of ecological devastation
