France: Dancing ZAD activists defy police in Notre-Dame-des-Landes

France, Notre-Dame-des-Landes
April 15, 2018 at 17:34 GMT -00:00 · Published

Hundreds of people came together to support the ZAD ('Zone a Defendre') occupation in Notre-Dame-des-Landes on Sunday.

They protested peacefully against the state's eviction orders.

Supports of the occupation danced with musical instruments in front of a police barricade.

The eco-activists from ZAD initially came together in 2008 to protest against a proposed airport in Nantes.

The plan was recently abandoned but around 200 activists remain at the site and refuse to leave it, despite eviction orders and threats from the authorities.
