For the past 2 years, “les Soulèvements de la Terre” has been leading or joining forces in the fight against a multitude of absurd projects that are harmful to the environment and nature, in particular water-related projects such as the mega-basins at Sainte Soline.
In the face of popular support and the symbolic significance of their actions, “les Soulèvements de la Terre” has been subjected to a campaign of denigration and stifling, ranging from accusations of eco-terrorism to an attempt by the government to dissolve the organisation. This campaign has just suffered a major setback with the suspension of their dissolution by the courts. This is a 1st victory, as this fundamental decision remains temporary.
The European Water Movement, share not only the fight against mega-basins, but also the idea that the struggle to preserve the common good that is water is intimately linked to the other struggles highlighted by “les Soulèvements de la Terre”. We are also convinced that these struggles know no borders.
The European Water Movement therefore :
- Calls on its members and all those who can to join the current water convoy, which will arrive in Paris on Saturday 26 August;
- Calls on the French government to cease its relentless efforts to dissolve “les Soulèvements de la Terre”;
- Lends its full support to “les Soulèvements de la Terre”: https://lessoulevementsdelaterre.org/
