Occupants of the alternative 'Zone a Defendre' (Z.A.D./Zone to Defend) faced off with police in riot gear early Monday morning, near the Loire village of Notre-Dame-Des-Landes. The entry of the Gendarmes came just a day after Prime Minister Edouard Philippe confirmed an eviction will take place in the coming days. Footage shows the police in riot gear throwing tear gas at the inhabitants, who... Еще in turn threw flares and stones back at the police. The group originally established the community to protest the building of an airport in the area. While the plans for this airport were abandoned in February 2018, many members of the community still seek to remain and continue their communal living project.
