Protesters on trial for stealing Macron portraits

Eight climate change protesters and one filmmaker were in French court Wednesday (September 11) for theft of portraits of President Emmanuel Macron. The group with the slogan ”Take down Macron”, claims more than 129 portraits were stolen from public buildings this year…to denounce perceived inaction over climate change. The pilfered portraits were then flipped upside down during a protest near a G7 summit. Macron has long tried to project an image of himself as an environmental champion, but these activists say it’s not enough.
