French Protestors Build 50 Pallet Buildings to Stop Airport

Hi, i’m arthur, a french reader of shelter and homework and i do things
with old paletts sometimes too. It happen something really great in
france, near Nantes, in the village of Notre-Dame-des-Landes : the company
Vinci want to build a second airport and destruct 40 farms and 2000
hectars. Ecologist movement, people who want to live free and activist
have built a lot of wood houses to resist. Maybe it is 40 or 50 cabins and
houses now. Police tried to stop it but they can’t. I put some links of

    salut arthur, merci pour ces photos et respect aux militants de la ZAD pour leur engagement et leur créativité sans limite
    thanks, arthur, for these pictures
    this is one of the most important civic fights in France today
    many young protesters are occupying the area which is sealed off by security forces
    every time a cabin is destroyed by the police, protesters come again and build another one
    many people give free or recovered materials, food, clothes… to support them, and they link arms to bring all the stuff through the fields
    despite harsh conditions (mud, cold, police controls…) the builders are making tireless efforts and this amazing village is a very creative, continual building site.

    Awesome! I also talk about using free pallets as a resource to making a home, garden, and other unique projects (bookshelf, cabinet, etc) @
    I also have a video there that shows a group of people building a home out of pallets. Very inspiring!
    Here is another post on my blog where I talk about pallets and how to get free materials @
