Invitation to the 2nd European Forum against Enforced Useless Major Projects from July 7th to July 11th 2012

Notre-Dame-des-Landes (near Nantes, Loire-Atlantique, in France)

In 1992, the Earth Summit (UNCSD), in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), established the first world calendar and the 27 principles for sustainable development.
Twenty years later, still in Rio (20th 22nd June 2012) away from their commitments, governments are going to promote "green economy", renouncing to put political choices, social justice and sustainability over economic logics . Their socalled green economy is leading to the extension of the commodification and financialization of nature and society, even though we live in a context of unprecedented crises (financial, economic, social,
ecological ...).

Throughout the world, people, aware of the challenges of the period, rise against the damage caused by the continued forced march of this 'maldevelopment'. At the very time when they demand other social choices, they witness the multiplication of gigantic enforced projects [airports, motorways, highspeed railway lines, dams, mega industrial or commercial projects ...], devastating ecosystems and agricultural land, destroying lifestyles and existing solidarities, gulping down public funds to the detriment of their basic needs. Therefore they organize themselves to oppose their accomplishment , offer alternatives ...

Opponents of the project of a new airport in Notre Dame des Landes ( in the area of Nantes , in Loire-Atlantique in France), united in the fight against a 40-years-old plan, have chosen to organize the 2nd European Forum against Enforced Useless Major Projects. This initiative will take the form of a thematic Forum within the World Social Forum. It aims at enabling many current struggles against useless major projects to rally, in order to identify these projects, to count them,to fight them. It will develop solidarities with the organization of convergent actions at European level ... to move forward along the path of social, ecological and democratic transition.

We invite all the people, local collectives, networks, organizations ... involved in the fighting to join us on the site of Notre Dame des Landes, from July 7th to July 11th 2012, to move and act together.
