  • Description

    On Friday (11 June) nearly 100 residents of Plainpalais, a central suburb of Geneva, camped on a corner property in the city where a clump of trees were due to be felled to make way for new buildings. Most of the residents were women and children. Many had ladders which they used to climb up into the trees so that workmen could not begin felling operations. They succeeded in getting a postponement of felling operations while the city authorities study the building project again, and reconsider the desirability of having the trees removed. The trees include three tall poplars, a magnificent sequoia, and several smaller species.
