Slogans “Down with dictatorship” were seen in the demonstrations.
Paris police urged the protesters to respect the declared route. The police said that the demonstration was accompanied by throwing objects, lighting fires in garbage cans, and clashes.
There were also demonstrations in other French cities, such as Lyon, where police had to use tear gas against the crowd. And in Haute-Savoie, protesters tried to seize the prefecture of Annecy and even broke down the entrance gate.
