Climate activists from France and Italy block Mont Blanc tunnel

PARIS: French and Italian climate activists blocked the entrances to the Mont Blanc tunnel in Chamonix on the French side and in Courmayeur on the Italian side to raise awareness of climate change.
The action that started at 11:30 a.m. GMT was led by around 20 activists from Dernier Rénovation (France) and Ultima Generazione (Italy), two sister organizations belonging to the A22 civil resistance movement, the joint statement said.
It aimed to put pressure on the French and Italian governments to take action to limit climate change.
“We are blocking the road today to open a new road for the children of tomorrow,” said Luca, 28, from Ultra Generation.
