Dozens of protesters gathered in Paris in solidarity with migrants being evicted from their camp by the French police, with many being assaulted, a journalist among them. Police violently tore up tents as protesters chanted ‘No Justice, No Peace!’ After police exited the area, activists and migrants cheered them off, although they only retreated to the edge.
Police remained at the edge and prepared to attack with riot gear, appearing ready to arrest many people. Protesters later marched down the city, demanding aid from the mayor of Paris.
Police began to tear-gas and attack refugees and protesters at Saint-Merri, and trapped them at Beaubourg, stopping them from making it to the town hall.
Protesters then marched north towards the Seine Saint Denis, before dispersing for the night.
