Truncheon beatings on the Rollfield

Today at the airport Nantes Atlantique, the opponents to the construction of the airport of Notre-Dame-des-Landes met up for a peacefully protest at the terminal. They wanted to raise their voice against the construction of the second airport in Nantes.

Protesters supported by a brigade of clown activist (within children) came peacefully in the Terminal 1 by singing and shouting slogans. When the protesters moved in Terminal 3, the CRS violently taken on them. One person was beaten up to the ground and got seriously injured. She got a baton on her throat leading to a incapacity to breath and 3 rips broken. Another person had his skull open by batons. The both were taken to hospital. Five others were arrested, even tho injured, we don't know if they will receive medical help. One of them was immediately referred to the prosecution.

When the State has no arguments anymore to justify a megalomaniac project, they let speak their brutality !

We demand the release of all arrested !
We demand the abandonment of the airport project at Notre-Dame-des-Landes !
