Blocking of the ring road in Toulouse by the climate activists of “Dernière Rénovation”, what do they think?
This is at least the fifth punch action of the climate activists of “Last Renovation” in Toulouse. These activists blocked the Toulouse ring road at rush hour on Thursday. They were taken into custody and released the same day. What do they think?
For a few weeks, the name of their collective has not ceased to be mentioned. The environmental activists of “Last Renovation” were talked about again this Thursday in Toulouse. At rush hour, when the lanes of the ring road are particularly congested, a dozen activists posted themselves on the lanes blocking traffic for long minutes. Quickly, the Toulouse police intervened so that traffic resumed. A dozen activists were therefore dropped off and taken to the central police station. They were taken into custody and released a few hours later.
Each activist, however, left with a penal order. Clearly, these demonstrators will be summoned to court to answer for their actions. In essence, the offense of “obstructing traffic on the public highway”. A gesture punishable by a fine of €4,500 and two years in prison.
A complaint lodged
But these fervent defenders of the environment who ardently defend the issue of the energy renovation of buildings received in a multifaceted way. The proof, again in Toulouse, on November 5th. On this date, the Stade Toulousain receives at Ernest-Wallon, the Stade Français. As the meeting started, two activists from “Dernière Rénovation” invaded the field and attached themselves to the posts. In this specific case, the two convicts were taken into custody and then released. Initially, the Rugby League found the club guilty of “disorders caused by players, managers and/or the public of a club or clubs present” and more particularly for “the irruption of one or more unauthorized persons in one of the areas reserved for the competition (playing enclosure, locker rooms or corridors giving access to these areas) with an incident”. Stade Toulousain was fined 5,000 euros. In a second step, the club can take legal action against the activists.
In the internal regulations of the Ernest-Wallon stadium, it is stated that “disturbing the course of a competition or undermining the safety of persons or property, by entering the competition area of a sports arena, is punished one year’s imprisonment and a fine of 15,000 euros”.
