Description : This text focuses on three different groups of civil activists protesting against infrastructure installations, and on their understanding of science. The role of science is revealed as an ambivalent one for environmental activism, and it is also shown to pose problems for anthropology: in looking at environmental activism as a social commitment, meaningful commentary must combine both social and scientific perspectives.
