The six environmental activists of the “Last renovation” movement who blocked a stage on the Tour de France last year were fined 500 euros suspended.
The final sanction fell for the six members of the “Last Renovation” collective, who had blocked the route of the Tour de France. While the prosecution had requested a fine of 500 euros, including 300 suspended, the criminal court of Auch was finally more complementary, by imposing a fine of 500 euros suspended on the six environmental activists.
As a reminder, these six people had sat along the roadway, before the passage of the riders, during the 19th stage of the Tour de France. This had led to the interruption of the race for a few minutes, like a few days earlier during the 10th stage between Morzine and Megève. The breakaways had been stopped, then the peloton, the race direction making sure to keep the gap between the two groups.
The group “Last Renovation” is acting because of the climate emergency, and is calling on the French government for a global plan for the thermal renovation of buildings. This collective made itself known during Roland-Garros, when an activist entered the Philippe-Chatrier court to chain herself to the net, during the semi-final between Casper Ruud and Marin Cilic.
“Sorry to have interrupted your game, but all eyes are now on Roland-Garros, and we must sound the alarm bells, explained Alizée, 22, on social networks. Nobody gives a fuck when we do marches for the climate, when we’re all going to die so this is where we chose to act. »
Tied to the nets of Rolland-Garros or lying on the roads of the Tour de France…
