Demonstrators gathered Friday (May 26) in Paris outside of the building hosting the annual general assembly of French energy giant TotalEnergies.

Bellowing slogans such as ‘tax the wealthy’, climate activists wanted to keep pressure on the company to reduce its carbon footprints.

The head of Fridays For Future in Uganda had made the trip. Total is jointly developing an oil project in the country.

“I’ve moved all the way like over 5.000 miles to come to the Total AGM because it’s important to people like me,” Patience Nabukalu said.
