Cela fait cinq mois que la "coopérative rouge" CMC essaie de mener à bout l'expropriation de 84 terrains à Venaus (Val de Suse, Italie), afin de commencer les travaux d'une galerie de service de 10 km, prélude au percement d'un tunnel de 53 km, la pièce maîtresse du chantier du TGV Lyon-Turin. A chaque tentative (29 juin, 6 octobre), la mobilisation de la population de la vallée, largement opposée au TGV, l'en a physiquement empêchée. Le 30 novembre, la CMC revient à la charge, mais 5000 personnes l'attendent à nouveau de pied ferme, marquant le début d'une occupation nuit et jour des terrains de Venaus.
