Dozens of demonstrators gathered in the Bastille Square on Saturday evening after the raid took place in the Place d’Italie at around 10:30 p.m. (local time), according to several videos broadcast live on social media.
“Macron is waging war on us and his police, but we are determined to blockade the country,” chanted protesters as they marched through the streets of the capital’s 11th arrondissement.
As they passed, trash cans were overturned and slogans were chanted, mostly hostile to the police.
According to Anadolu, the participants were instructed to “be mobile” in order to make it more difficult for the authorities.
Before that, the evening degenerated into Italian Square, where tear gas was used to disperse the protesters.
Garbage bins and street furniture were completely burnt before the police intervened.
The presence of the BRAV-M (Brigade for the Repression of Motorized Violent Actions), deployed in large numbers, was particularly noticeable throughout the evening with personnel chasing demonstrators on motorcycles and on foot suspected of being involved in violent movements.
