Activists throw ‘Orange Powder’ inside Versailles’ Hall of Mirrors

French climate activists recently staged a unique protest at the famed Hall of Mirrors at the Palace of Versailles by spreading orange clay powder, calling for sustainable food for all.

Two French group Riposte Alimentaire (Food Counterattack) activists last Saturday (May 4) carried out the protest that “raise awareness about growing inequalities, allowing a privileged minority to monopolize part of the resources, while the majority of citizens collect the crumbs”.

In an Instagram post, the group wrote, “The Hall of Mirrors is the indecency of a minority which monopoliz\ses power and money while the people die. 350 years later nothing has changed!”

The protesters were later arrested.
