scandal. This is a noble motive. But the situation caused such fear and tension that hundreds of fans left the main stage of Roland Garros. The players had to take cover in the changing rooms. A controversial night in the magic tennis club of Paris, broadcast to the whole world.
It was 9:15 pm. Hours earlier, Rafael Nadal had already reached the final in the worst way: with a serious injury to Alexander Zverev. Another Roland Garros semi-final between Norway’s Kasper Ruud (No. 8) and Croatia’s Marian Cilic (No. 23) on Friday, was cut short for more than a quarter of an hour after a climate activist linked herself to the network to display a protest letter.
With the match in favor of the Norwegian 3-6, 6-4, 4-1 and 15-15 in Game Six, Alizee, 22, jumped onto Philippe Chatrier Court and tied herself to one end of the net, got on his knees with his right hand raised and a letter (in English) On his T-shirt: “We have 128 days left.”
The young woman belongs to a French association that advocates for changes in climate policies, ensuring that just over 1,000 days remain to “determine the future of humanity”. The two players headed to the locker rooms until the tournament security men untied the activist and took her out of the stadium with four agents on board.
After a short warm-up period, the match proceeded normally. But the tension persisted in the environment. “We are in 2022 and it is time to face reality, the world into which politicians send us is a world that Roland Garros will not be able to survive in. I entered the court today because I can no longer risk doing nothing in the face of the climate emergency”, his controversial message was And noble in some way.
We could clearly notice a particular web page, which represents, https://derniererenovation.fr/. In it, a bleak look appears on the first page. “1028 days is what remains for us to determine the future of humanity. Less than three years. The countdown began on March 28, 2022, the end of the ultimatum sent to the government, and the date on which citizens entered into civil resistance. France has been condemned by its courts for its climate inaction. The future of this country is literally destroyed. Wasting time is doom,” is one of the messages.
A statement from David King, a former scientific advisor to the UK government, was quoted: “You have to go very fast. I am convinced that what we do in the next three or four years will determine the future of the human race.” After being stunned, tennis followed. A week ago, Paris was the focus of the world, when a group of misfits attempted to enter the Champions League final, without tickets and over pubs, leading to the postponement of the final between Real Madrid and Liverpool.
