Star Wars 'imperial march' chanted as French police evacuate blockade

On Friday, September 17, more than 100 people gathered in Nantes, France to denounce the lack of measures to help those living in the streets and the refugees in the city. As a way to pressure the public authorities, protesters sat next to an abandoned building, asking for the town hall to open it to the homeless while better solutions can be found. After a few hours, the police evacuated the sit-in by "charging" the crowd, a crowd that answered by chanting the "imperial march" from the "Star Wars" movie.
