Topic - Vercors access under threat - petition

glasgowcaver - on 14 Jan 2014
I have been sent a copy of an article in 'Speleo' magazine, about a threat to access in the commune of Choranche - basically it seems that the village council wants to sell off the communal footpaths to landowners, which will then make it very difficult to walk around the commune, for example to access the cliffs (the falaise de Presles) and caves.

An association has been formed to oppose this 'privatisation' of footpaths - 'Chemins pour tous' - and they have a petition at:


A very good video explains the situation (in French) and is here: http://vercorstv.wmaker.tv/Choranche-des-chemins-pour-tous_v728.html

Hilariously the Mairie will get an email every time someone signs, so please support the fight to keep access.
