Yan Morvan, José BovéLarzac 1978
“In 1971, the enlargement of the Larzac military camp was announced. About a hundred farms were to disappear. This Causse situated at the entrance to the Cévennes, in the south of the Massif Central, then entered into history. Farmers and inhabitants of the plateau began a struggle that lasted until 1981. Nearly 100,000 people converged on Larzac, and demonstrations, hunger strikes, occupations of military buildings, parties and marches were organised throughout France. This is how the first “ZAD” and the French anti-globalization movements were born.
Larzac won its case ten years after the beginning of the occupation. Three years before this victory, in 1978, a great march was organised to Paris, a high point of the struggle which then gained the official support of François Mitterand. Yan Morvan covered these last years of the struggle as a photojournalist. These photographs bear witness to this moment in history.”
