France: LePen plays green card

Source: Yahoo! News

“With a week to go before France’s presidential election runoff, far-right candidate Marine Le Pen played the green card outside a controversial aluminium plant in the south of the country. Le Pen has made a series of targeted campaign stops in a bid to close a 19-point gap in voter surveys with centrist frontrunner Emmanuel Macron, 39. Vowing to pursue a vision of ‘true ecology,’ the 48-year-old National Front (FN) candidate said the Alteo plant in the town of Gardanne was a symbol of a false choice between jobs and the environment.” (04/30/17)
