Christmas songs for the ZAD at Notre-Dame

 

Around 150 persons, coordinated by J.E.D.I. for Climate, sang subversive christmas songs for a flashmob supporting the ZAD struggle. ZAD activists defend their land in Nantes against the building plans of an airport, for the last 30 years already.

Action on fossil free culture at the Louvre

This morning we went to the Louvre to participate at the open beautiful action that was going to happen there to expose the fossil fuel lobby which is sponsoring the museum. We tell you what happened there and we also got an audio from people who got arrested inside the Louvre because they made a ritual with oil-simulation in one of its halls to expose corporate power embedded in major cultural stakeholders.

“Dear Louvre, when the company Total sponsors you, you sponsor Total. Don’t sponsor Climate chaos!”

* We thank The New Internationalist for the last bit of the audio, a message from the activists arrested.

UN Cantine at La Générale

Last Thursday The Eroles Project organised an immersive performance in which the participants, representing the role of certain nation, company or lobby had to cook together a dinner. Each participant contributed to the dinner with an ingredient and had to play hard on negotiations and navigate through the power relations that immediately emerged.

We witnessed power games, right to vetoe, money influence and environmental disasters that were transforming certain nations to climate refugees. This experimental and successful format allowed to experience the frustration of UN talks and the state of ecological emergency we are facing.
