Climate activists protest from Notre Dame Cathedral crane
Greenpeace activists hung banners from a huge construction crane atop Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, accusing France and President Emmanuel Macron of not doing enough to fight climate change.
The medieval landmark is under reconstruction after a devastating fire last year and is off-limits to the public.
The group said in a statement that four climbers mounted the huge crane, about 80 meters high, soon after dawn and unfurled banners with such phrases as "Climate: Time to Act.”
According to Greenpeace France, the activists took the banners down after a couple of hours and descended from the crane. No one was detained.
