The polemic on displacements in sand yachting takes more and more scale. Monday evening, at a press conference, Paris Saint-Germain coach Christophe Galtier was asked about the plane trip taken by his team to go to Nantes. The Parisian coach had therefore declared, laughing: “oWe haven’t spoken with the company that organizes our trips, we’re trying to see if we can’t move around in a sand yacht. »
A joke that did not pass in the eyes of Greenpeace. This Tuesday evening, the ecological association therefore decided to react by bringing a sand yacht to the vicinity of the Parc des Princes. ” We were shocked by the reaction of PSG. Today, we ask the French to get into energy sobriety and the wealthiest people laugh when we ask them about their means of transport, it hurts us deeply said Sarah Fayolle, Transport Campaigner at Greenpeace.
A half-hour protest
A dozen demonstrators were therefore present to protest and show their dissatisfaction with posters where one could read in particular: ” PSG: climatic red card “. Moreover, by carrying out this action, the militants had a very precise objective. ” We are not here to block the passage, but precisely to convey a message. We call on PSG and the other clubs to take more responsibility. »
For about thirty minutes, the Greenpeace association therefore took up residence under the gaze of Parisian supporters. ” I think this action deserves to be taken seriously, laughing at it, it was a bit inappropriate. Afterwards, there is a slight injustice, because all the clubs do the same thing “Says Mehdi, who came to see the PSG-Juventus match. A few steps further, Julien carefully observes this demonstration. ” Basically, they are right, we are talking more and more about ecology and public figures must set an example. But afterwards, I think it was neither the place nor the time to do that “. Be that as it may, the words used by Christophe Galtier are likely to make people talk for a long time.
