Session Abstract

Is struggling against the “progress” of big projects, like an airport in Notre-Dame des Landes or gold mining in the Amazon of French Guiana, enough to establish an alternative mode of existence? Something is certainly generated during the time of the struggle, but how to move on afterwards? For over ten years, activists in France occupied the land, squatted on old farms that were slated to be destroyed, built shelters and invented new collective ways to live together. During the same time native Americans in French Guiana tried to stop the deadly mercury pollution of their rivers by clandestine gold miners, and constructed national and international alliances against the Russian-Canadian “Mountain of Gold” project. This presentation will discuss what is at stake when new forms of economic or religious colonisation replace or play hand in hand with the State. From micropolitics to transversal alliances, responses of hope come from Indigenous and other territorial movements whose current cosmoactions would have pleased Guattari and Deleuze.
