Environmental activists from Greenpeace France and other organisations launched a protest on Wednesday outside TotalEnergies’ company annual general meeting (AGM), to demonstrate against the company’s environmental policies.
According to Reuters report, Greenpeace France published a video on its Twitter account (@greenpeacefr) showing one of its members at the protest, claiming over 300 activists were mobilised to ask TotalEnergies to stop its activities that were “lethal for the climate”.
Images posted on social media from protesters showed demonstrators with banners such as “LNG Total Chaos”.
A Reuters witness said there were about 250 protesters and that some activists had chained themselves to each other.
Jean-Francois Juillard, the head of Greenpeace France, said on Twitter that activists were also asking TotalEnergies to withdraw from Russia following its invasion of Ukraine and were calling for an end to all new fossil fuel energy projects.
