Marion Cotillard protests jailing of Greenpeace activists

ACTOR Marion Cotillard briefly caged herself near the Louvre museum in Paris to demand the release of 30 Greenpeace activists jailed in Russia over an Arctic protest.

Cotillard held a banner proclaiming: "I am a climate defender."

The symbolic protest was staged in the heart of the city at the weekend.

The so-called "Arctic 30" are imprisoned in Saint Petersburg pending trial.
