Climate activists fill golf course holes with cement to protest against water ban exemption

The Independent published this video item, entitled “Climate activists fill golf course holes with cement to protest against water ban exemption” – below is their description.

Climate activists in the south of France have filled golf course holes with cement, protesting against the exemption they receive from water bans as the country faces its most severe drought in history.

Golf greens are exempt from France’s nationwide water restrictions due to a national agreement signed in 2019.

Extinction Rebellion activists say golf greens are enjoying a privilege “worthy of another world” while 100 villages face drinking water shortages.
