Orvalt EPM treehouse occupation (France)

Across the Channel a few dozen people have been occupying the building site of the youth prison, the EPM (Établissement Pénitentiaire pour Mineurs) in Orvault, France since Monday morning. Activists have set up four tree-houses whilst others gather on the ground in solidarity and intend to thoroughly shut the whole thing down.

Last October, a first demonstration against the "EPM" took place during which some 200 people invaded the building site, putting up banners on the highway and putting out survey stakes, to slow down the construction process.
