Dozens of protesters from the international peasant movement Via Campesina protested Wednesday at the Paris headquarters of the international food corporation Danone to denounce the negative impact the transnational company has had on the daily life of millions of farm workers who have been forced to abandon their fields.

The activists painted the main entrance to the company’s offices in red and placed banners, while chanting slogans such as “Danone is the enemy.”

The rally was brief as participants were forced to abandon the demonstration before the police arrived, to avoid arrest and confrontation. The French government banned all public protests and rallies as part as the three-month state of emergency declared after the Paris attacks, which left over 130 people dead and hundreds injured.
