Two excavators and a large waste receptacle were deployed to clear an area where the protestors had set up shacks. The airport, which is scheduled to replace the current airport at Nantes in 2017, is a pet project of Socialist Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault, who was the city's mayor from 1989 until this year.
