  • An activist and an activist who stayed on a tree for days after the evacuation of a protest camp on a hill near Eclépens have left the premises.
  • The man was slightly injured in a fall several meters deep, the woman climbed from the tree herself.
  • The Vaudois canton police announced this on Saturday afternoon via Twitter.
  • The police cleared the occupied Lafarge Holcim site on Mormont Hill near Eclépens and La Sarraz on Tuesday. The activists had occupied the hill since October to protect the local ecosystem.

The activist, who fell from the tree, was caught by his own ropes. He suffered minor injuries and was taken to the hospital for a check-up. The activist descended from the tree a little later.

Fall shortly before the support rally

One activist's fall occurred shortly before a support rally for the activists announced for Saturday afternoon. The collective ZAD (Zone à défendre) wrote that the fallen activist was very experienced and that his fall was due to a mistake. The police brought this about.

The person concerned could not rest. The police took away materials such as sleeping bags, gloves and warm clothing from the activists. For their part, the police had always emphasized that the safety of the two activists was guaranteed.

Comrades encouraged them to stay

Since Thursday evening, the police had been negotiating with the last two occupiers of Mormont Hill, who were holed up in a tree. The two persevering people regularly climbed a few meters down from the tree to talk to other environmental activists who were also there. They had encouraged their comrades to stay in the tree one more night, the police wrote on Good Friday.

The Vaudois emergency services had cleared the protest camp on the premises of the building materials manufacturer Holcim in the early morning of last Tuesday. On Wednesday, the police declared the operation over - despite the remaining two activists.

A total of around 200 activists were evicted by the police when they cleared the area near Eclépens. They protested against the expansion of the Holcim quarry. 83 people were stopped. About 20 of them have been arrested and face trial.

  • Comment from Peter Müller (PeRoMu)
    What a shame, the two of them got down from the tree. Because now the weather changes ...
    Agree agree to the comment
  • Comment from René Tinner (Marex)
    Why are these crazy people being supplied with water? How do they relieve themselves? and why are you not arrested and taken away during your talks on the ground? Hopefully they will be billed for the cost of this promotion. And how long does it take for these guys to realize that they are not moving? Chop down a tree and immediately plant a new one.
    Agree agree to the comment
  • Comment from Franco Caroselli (FrancoCaroselli)
    At some point the hunger comes and they voluntarily get down from the tree. Very easily. Instead of eating, they tidy up. Imagine if climate activists protect the environment and air. So clean first.
    Agree agree to the comment
