Paris on fire: riots in the French capital

In Paris, another action against the adoption of the law “On global security” escalated into clashes between protesters and law enforcement agencies. The riots were caused by a large group of people in black clothes, who burn trash in the city center and also throw bottles and fireworks at cops.

They began to set fire to the trash about an hour and a half after the start of the march of opponents of the law, which began from Republic Square at about 14:00. The protesters headed towards the Place de la Bastille to the beat of drums.

Protests in France began over the Global Security Bill, which criminalizes the dissemination of facial images or other identification of police or gendarme representative with the intent to harm him. The initiative provides for a punishment of one year in prison, as well as a fine of 45 thousand euros.
