Tens of thousands protest against climate law in France | Free press

In France, the climate movement took to the streets at the weekend. In several cities, protesters have called for more climate protection than President Emmanuel Macron currently plans.

Paris (AP) – Tens of thousands of people demonstrated in Paris and other French cities against what they saw as the central government’s inadequate climate protection law. The news channel Franceinfo reported this on Sunday evening, citing the authorities.

Last week, the House of Representatives approved the climate protection law, which does not go far enough for the demonstrators. The vote in the Senate, the Senate, is expected in the summer. The bill provides, among other things, for the ban on certain domestic flights if there is an alternative train that does not take more than two and a half hours to travel. In addition, the offense of ecocide must arise when there is deliberate serious and permanent damage to health, flora, fauna or the quality of the air, water or soil.
