The Bretons that protect their land

Bretons resist the land grab of multinational company VINCI.


First Plogoff now Notre-Dame-des-Landes.

The below is from the Celtic League.
 
Just days after the Celtic League criticised the lack of accountability of special police in the Celtic countries and we post links showing one such force in action trying to suppress peaceful protest against the construction of a new airport near Nantes in Brittany. 

There is considerable opposition to the site of this airport by local people whose rights are being trampled on. 

In one of the videos we post French Police (CRS) are shown utilising the same brutal tactics we have seen against protesters in other Celtic countries. Indeed the scenes are reminiscent of the treatment of the local community in North Mayo who oppose Shell and have seen similar brutal suppression of their legitimate right to protest. 

The Celtic League will be identifying what practical steps it can take to assist the anti airport protest in Brittany. 




The Celtic League has branches in the six Celtic Countries. It works to promote cooperation between these countries and campaigns on a broad range of political, cultural and environmental matters. It highlights human rights abuse, monitors all military activity and focuses on socio-economic issues

A Google map of where Breton is spoken

Lec'hioù ma vez komzet brezhoneg - Google Maps - Ar soñj gant ar gartenn-mañ a zo renabliñ stalioù, embregerezhioù, ti touristed ha kement zo tout e-lec'h ma vez komzet brezhoneg.

The idea of this map is to locate shops, companies, tourist information offices and more where Breton is spoken.  An idea for a language like Cornish which needs to advertise its presence.
