The installation of this defense accessory, at the top of the barriers enclosing the park La Grange, is not easy. But what is the army doing?
They are called artificial brambles. We expected them, they arrived late Wednesday afternoon on army trailer trucks, dozens of coils which, to the ignorant eye, are reminiscent of giant hair salon curlers.
The rolls of galvanized wire, filled with sharp points and spikes, wait in the sun on the rounded esplanade of the Parc des Eaux-Vives. It is 9 am this Thursday morning, it is already hot, and the instruction begins. Thirty civil protection workers are explained how to handle the kilometers of barbed wire. It is more tricky than the barriers of the day before and the day before.
