Hundreds of Yellow Vests gathered in what would be dubbed as ‘Rainbow Bloc’ at the Council of State in solidarity with protesters arrested during the March of Liberties demonstration against the global security law in the previous week.

The police then kettled the crowd for 40 minutes, causing many complaints before slowly letting protesters disperse.
