Normally not human beings”. In the kitchen of her shack, alongside her three sisters, Sue Ellen Demestre displays an intact indignation after a decade of commitment. Her family is settled, in fact, for 15 years on this area, where according to his count some 280 people are squeezed. A curtain of trees separates them from the concrete plant, an embankment from a rubble crushing plant. Originally , families had set up a “wild” camp on nearby land to spend the winter there. In 2007, a reception area was created, the Besson law requiring municipalities with more than 5,000 inhabitants to have one . At first satisfied, the occupants become disillusioned when cement scab, conjunctivitis and respiratory problems, reports Sue Ellen. Not to mention the noise and the ballet of the trucks. But for lack of any other solution and to educate the children, they take root. Until 2013, the Briqueteries du Nord set up. in the gypsy dialect. Petitions, demonstrations, making a film follow one another. – “We pay to die” – “We lost our 42-year-old sister-in-law to generalized cancer. Her brother also had cancer. Out of ten births, seven children end up with asthma. The elderly have recurrent bronchitis”, list Sue Ellen, who points to “environmental racism”. rent. “In July-August, it’s unbearable: you put down a phone, in two minutes it’s covered in dust”. His 20-year-old niece, mother of two girls aged 9 months and 6 years, takes her younger, who suffers from respiratory problems and eye irritations. No official link has been established between the state of health of the residents and the pollution of the site. In November 2020, the prefecture asked the concrete company CCB to assess its emissions at its own expense. The measurements will be carried out “in the second quarter of 2023”, assures CCB. So far, no design office has agreed to intervene because of the “risk of degradation” of the equipment by the residents, pleads the company. “We can take all the measurements we want, in any way there is dust and they no longer want to live there”, sweeps away the elected representative of the Lille metropolis for travellers, Patrick Delebarre. The relocation of this area is now recorded in the Departmental Scheme of Reception of Travelers. But finding other land is complex, he underlines.  – A “unique” mobilization – “The law today requires that we put these people in healthy places”, whereas at the time , “the way of seeing things was to say + the law requires them to be put in a corner, let’s put them in a corner +”. The Departmental Scheme provides for family land or suitable housing, combining houses and pitches for caravans , because the areas “no longer correspond to the expectations of travelers from the North”, who are largely settled, he explains.  The municipalities of Ronchin and Hellemmes are looking for land but “we don’t have many building public plots left” and there is a lack of space, says the town hall of Ronchin.  For William Acker, a jurist from the traveling community, the struggle of women in this area, “among the worst” in France, is unique “even on a European scale”. “Usually, struggles  ;are scattered and run out very quickly, the public in the reception areas cannot afford to oppose the administration head-on”. “Whether we like it or not, they have succeeded in sedentarizing us “, summarizes Sue Ellen. “But I want us to be our way. We also want our children later to have a job that makes them want to get up in the morning”.bj/cab/cbn and and more content about Amandine Pellissard and her husband Alexandre tell all about their transition into adult entertainment
