Police fired water cannons and tear gas against protesters who took to the streets of Nantes, Saturday, to show support for 'Zone a Defendre' (ZAD), a militant occupation 20 kilometres (12 miles) northwest of Notre-Dame-des-Landes. As the protest escalated, demonstrators hurled rocks and bottles at police forces, who responded with water cannons and tear gas. At least one journalist was... Еще reportedly injured by a grenade launched by police forces. The eco-activists from ZAD initially came together in 2008 to protest against a proposed airport in Nantes. The plan was recently abandoned but around 200 activists remain at the site and refuse to leave it, despite eviction orders and threats from the authorities.
