Environmentalist activists who put down President Macron’s portrait demanded up to 5 years in prison

In Paris, the capital of France, a filmmaker and 8 environmental activists were brought before the judge on the grounds that they removed or stolen the portraits of President Emmanuel Macron hanging in public buildings.

In the first hearing about the environmentalist defendants, a fine of 75,000 euros and a prison sentence of up to 5 years were sought.

Environmentalists taken to court admitted they took down 125 portraits of Macron from town halls across France.

The activists said they did this to draw attention to the 125 days before the French government decides to make carbon footprint calculations.

Speaking after the hearing, 23-year-old activist Felix Veve said, “We think we are completely legitimate and we will be cleared as soon as possible. However, there is a government that does not comply with the law, although it is in the law. However, we will continue to mobilize people and take steps to combat climate change. ” he spoke.

A large number of people gathered in support of the demonstrators before the trial in Paris.
