eco-militant activists and French riot police are fighting a violent
battle in woodlands being cut down to make way for a dam, which will
spell the end for 41 acres of trees.The activists are armed with
Molotov cocktails and gas canisters; the police are trying to protect
workers as they clear the forest. The local council says that the dam
will irrigate cornfields in the area, but the activists — and many
locals — are against the destruction.VICE News followed the
fight for the forest alongside the group of activists that have
previously been hostile to any media approaches.
