After an unsuccessful meeting in the presence of Nicolas Hulot Wednesday, the prefect of Pays de la Loire once again received a delegation of occupants of the ZAD. The latter decided to “respond to government injunctions”.
A delegation of occupants of the ZAD of Notre-Dame-des-Landes announced this Friday, at the end of a meeting at the prefecture in Nantes, they had filed nominative projects as requested by the government. “We decide today to respond to government injunctions. We want to stop the escalation of tension in the area and finally get the necessary time for dialogue and the construction of the project that we defend, “they told the press. It is “a very concrete gesture of dialogue to get out of this hellish cycle”, they said, stating to have deposited 40 nominative projects, among which some individual and certain collectives.
After a meeting of more than two hours, the prefect of Pays de la Loire, Nicole Klein, greeted in front of the reporters the work done: “They did a lot of work, it must be recognized, and they have brought about 20 nominative projects, so the name, an address, a project that we will of course examine closely from here Monday night. “The zadistes have filed 28 agricultural projects, and twelve artisanal projects and distribution, according to Nicole Klein.
“This is a sign of good will,” said the state representative, because they had “until today refused to give nominative projects.” “They responded in part to the request to deposit nominative projects (…) I think that almost all places have submitted agricultural projects,” said Nicole Klein.
The state had asked the occupants to complete by Monday evening individual forms, including their name and outline of their agricultural or para-agricultural project. By inviting the zadists to resume the dialogue, interrupted on April 9 by the eviction operations and the destruction of 29 “squats” in four days, the region’s prefect, Nicole Klein, wanted to offer them “a way out” and try to avoid a larger evacuation.
