In the French capital today held a massive March against racism in support of the American protests with the slogan “Black Lives Matter”. During the rally, clashes occurred with the security forces.

The March was organized in memory of Adam Traore, a young black, who died in a French police cell in 2016. However, local authorities banned the rally because of possible threats to local businesses.

Despite the ban, thousands of French people took to Republic square in the centre of Paris. The security forces blocked the protesters when they gathered to continue the movement to the Paris Opera.

Between protesters and police clashes, during which security forces used tear gas.

We will remind, movement “Black Lives Matter” arose after the death of the African-American George Floyd during a brutal arrest by the police in Minneapolis. The law applies to Floyd a rear naked choke, after which he lost consciousness and died in hospital.

The death of Floyd caused massive protests in the U.S. that has also spread to Europe.

Add that Floyd was buried in the U.S. on June 10.
