'Cravirola' is a militant farming community situated in the Maritime Alps eighty miles north east of the Cote d'Azur. The current community is moving and need an interested group of similarly committed people to take over the running of this amazing property. A central requirement, beside a commitment to continuing agricultural activity is that members of the group speak fluent French. The monthly rent for the property is LOW. Check their website for more details.

Small scale agriculture, or 'peasant' agriculture is a militant activity in France. Cravirola belongs to The Confédération Paysanne whose spokesperson, Jose Bove, you may have heard of. They are also active in ATTAC. Here's a profile of the BOVE from the Beeb;

Here's an article describing his treatment in the US recently;

Ah, those people. I'm not really fond of folks who choose to make their point by destroying the property of others.

This isn't the debating section and I have no idea what you're talking about. I wasn't aware that Bush was sending people in to destroy non-GMO crops and vandalize businesses. :roll:
