Corsican Environmentalists Fight for their Protected Land

A group of almost 150 Corsican environmentalists gathered to protest two villas that were built illegally on the protected land area, Rondinara.

The protesters walked 3 km (1.9 miles) to protest in front of his property, and demand that the French government demolish the villas. The properties belong to Pierre Ferracci, the chairman and deputy managing director of the French company Alpha Groupe, whose path to building on the property was not a straight and direct one, though he claims no wrongdoing.

Earlier in July, a court of appeals initiated a legal action to fine Ferracci for one million Euros, but environmentalists want the villas to be destroyed, so that the land can prosper.
