France: Police use tear gas to disperse motorway protest

French police used tear gas to disperse around 200 protesters opposed to a planned motorway near the border village of Kolbsheim on Monday. Protesters were occupying an area destined to be a 24 kilometre (15 miles) stretch of motorway, just outside of Strasbourg. They declared the area a Zone to Defend (ZAD). Locals, including several senior citizens, joined the protest. Early in the... Еще morning, 500 police officers stormed the so-called ZAD shields and tear gas to disperse the activists. The proposal for the motorway was approved in August, but locals are opposing it on the ground that it won’t be beneficiary for car mobility and will destroy farmland and threaten endangered species including the great hamster of Alsace.
