Eight activists fined

Eight activists fined - Eight activists have been fined 500 euros each for having taken down portraits of French President Emmanuel Macron in town halls in the French capital. On February 21st and 28th, the activists removed the portraits as part of a national campaign “Décrochons Macron” led by the Action non violent COP21. The defendants explained that they had acted out of "moral duty" and because they had "no other choice" than "non-violent civil disobedience", in the face of the "threat" of global warming and "inaction" from the French government.
