Protesters storm Cannes’ red carpet for second time in demonstration against femicide

Protesters have upstaged celebrities attending the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival in protest against femicide.

At the premiere of Holy Spider on Sunday, a group of women cast black smoke in the air and held their fists up as they revealed a banner listing the “129 femicides since the last Cannes festival”.

The protest wanted to highlight the high number of domestic killings in France – one of the highest in Europe.

This comes days after a woman interrupted the premiere of George Miller’s Three Thousand Years Of Longing to protest topless against rape in Ukraine.
