Clashes in Paris to protest racism and police violence | News from the world


Clashes erupted in Paris on Tuesday between police and protesters after around 20,000 people defied the ban on gathering over the 2016 death of a black man in police custody, galvanized by US protests against the racism and deadly police violence.

Protesters used slogans from the American protest movement to call for justice for Adama Traore, whose death four years ago was a rallying ground against police violence in France.

The demonstration, which took place after the publication of two different medical reports on the cause of Traore’s death, had been banned by the police, citing a ban on the coronavirus on gatherings of more than 10 people.
