Not a single selfie, barely a few handshakes, but no hostility.

This Friday, March 1, the delegation of elected environmentalists present at the Agricultural Show in Paris wandered around in indifference.

Throughout their visit, they provoked narrowed looks.

“Who is the lady?”

», “Is she a minister?

Ah no,” “Who’s mom, who’s so important?”

Environmentalists, targeted by the government and some farmers since the start of the crisis, had come to declaim their message of love towards the agricultural world.

“I must say that we have had an excellent welcome.

Because I know that there is the temptation to say there are the ecologists on one side, the farmers on the other, insists Marine Tondelier, a stone's throw from the cow muse of the Salon, the Norman Oreillette.
