Only two days before the second round of the French presidential election, Greenpeace activists demonstrated against Marine Le Pen by hanging a huge banner on the Eiffel Tower, reading the famous French motto: “Liberty, Equality and Fraternity.”
This morning (Friday), Greenpeace activists climbed the famous Eiffel Tower in Paris and hung a sign with the famous French motto: “Liberty, Equality and Fraternity.” Next to it, they added a hashtag: “Resist.” The purpose was to encourage people to vote against far-right French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen in the second round of the election.
According to the activists, Le Pen holds dangerous and old-fashioned beliefs regarding environmental protection. “We wanted to say we are against the rise of nationalism and authoritarianism in France and in other countries,” stated head of Greenpeace in France Jean-Francois Julliard. “This is our way of reminding everybody that they all need to mobilize to defend these values of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity.”
Le Pen will face candidate Emmanuel Macron in the second round of the French presidential election.
