Demonstration against the PLU in Marigot


The grouping "Saint-Martin wake up" invites the population today, from 6 am, in front of the Hôtel de la Collectivité to protest against the local urban plan (PLU). The organizers intend to block Marigot in order to win their case with the elected officials.   

The objective of the “Saint-Martin wake up” group - made up of several associations and neighborhood councils n ° 1, n ° 2, n ° 3 and n ° 6 - is to challenge the elected officials of the Collectivity on three points , sent yesterday to the media: cancellation of the deliberation of June 25, 2015 concerning the PLU project; end of the public inquiry relating to the PLU and cancellation of deliberation number CE 100-3-2015 dated April 14, 2015 of the executive council, relating to the “50 geometric steps”. The mobilization is likely to be important since many citizens say they are anti-PLU. Last Wednesday, in Quartier d'Orléans, 171 petitions were signed in record time. As for the association "We love Saint-Martin", yesterday it counted 592 online petitions. "We insist and we demand that the Territorial Council grant to the neighborhood councils the constitutional respect which is due to them, to recognize that they constitute an integral organ of the Collectivity and, consequently, we demand that their lists of grievances be, finally , taken into consideration, ”explains the grouping. As a reminder, the public inquiry relating to the preparation of the PLU will be completed at the end of the month. The investigation commissioner will be present today from 10 a.m. to 13 p.m. and from 14:30 p.m. to 16 p.m.

    The WE LOVE SAINT MARTIN association is not the organizer of today's event.

    The action of the association which started on September 1 is based on dialogue with the Collectivity, even legal action if dialogue becomes impossible.

    The WAKE UP SAINT-MARTIN collective for its part has chosen other modes of expression. For information, his demonstration this morning was communicated to the press yesterday morning so that the public is informed and can organize themselves. Unfortunately this information was poorly relayed in the media.

    WE LOVE SAINT-MARTIN and SAINT-MARTIN WAKE UP nevertheless have a common objective: the rewriting of the PLU project of 25/6/15 synonymous with overcrowding, concreting and social housing and consequently degradation of our economic model based on a upscale tourism that comes to seek postcard landscapes in Saint-Martin.

    The action of the SAINT-MARTIN WAKE-UP collective deserves to be understood. In my opinion, this is the expression of mistrust of administration and justice, the feeling that our elected officials only understand the balance of power.

    The very young association We Love Saint-Martin still carries with it an ideal of justice and democracy, but for how long?
