Police Clash With Protesters in Paris Following Health Care Demonstrations

Police and protesters clashed in Paris, France, on June 16, following demonstrations in support of health care workers in front of the Ministry of Health in the city.

These videos show protesters clashing with police.

Several thousand people had gathered demanding more resources for the public hospital and for the entire health care system, local media reported.

However, the rally turned antagonistic, and the Prefecture of Police tweeted that “violent groups” had ruined the “peaceful demonstration” by carers.

AFP reported that at least 24 people had been arrested. Credit: @Hub8745 via Storyful
