Participants would have degraded the green of a golf course in Haute-Vienne. A "deplorable" situation, for the director of golf, who spoke at the microphone of Europe 1.
The dissolution of the Earth Uprising collective was suspended by the Council of State. It was seen as a setback for the government. On Sunday, as part of the Water Convoy, this itinerant protest against the mega-basins that must cross five departments of the center of the France, overflows took place on the course. Participants are accused of damage on the green of a golf course in Haute-Vienne.
Sunday, in the early afternoon, several dozen people, black hoods on their heads, enter the golf course of Beaumont Saint-Cyr by shearing the fence. Once on the green, they tear off clods of grass, break a pipe and leave as a signature on the lawn the logo of the Earth Uprisings, the anarchist symbol or the inscription "100 days to dry yourself".

An unplanned act of protest, defend the organizers of the Water Convoy, who ensure not to be at the initiative of these degradations.
