activists of the environmental movement, Extinction, Rebellion have carried out this Friday a action punch against the Medef in Paris, sprinkling his facade of fake blood to denounce the "lobbies" that prevent, according to them, the application of environmental measures.
Disguised as business men and women, smoking a large cigar, fifteen activists gathered in front of the headquarters of the employers where they parodied "the speech pro-economic and écocidaire" of this "lobby influence", and then sang "what a pleasure it is to pollute!". They then deployed a banner proclaiming sarcastically "Glory to the Medef", and doused the front of the building of fake blood with a pump.
Denounce "lobbyists, highly-polluting"
"We denounce the current influence of the lobbies are very polluting, that the lobbies of the agro-industry, the Medef, the industry of the plastic, so that the Covid was not finished, began to send e-mail to request the suspension of the environmental standards that are now necessary for our survival", told AFP a member of Extinguishing the Rebellion.

"We wanted to both denounce the cynicism and show that it is something dramatic. There are already dead because of the climate crisis, famines, epidemics, and so these people have blood on their hands, it must be said", he added. For Extinguishing the Rebellion, "the real culprit, first, it is the executive that accepts these relationships and this influence in its choice," explains the movement in a press release. The police arrived after the action, no arrest has taken place.
