“Macron, resign” and “Macron will break, we will win” were the slogans chanted by the crowd in the Place d’Itali
Police clashed with protesters in Paris for a third night in a row as thousands of people mobilized once again across the country, angry that the government is trying to pass pension reform without a vote in the National Assembly.
“Macron, resign” and “Macron will break, we will win” were the slogans chanted by the crowd in the Place d’Itali, in southern Paris. The police used tear gas and clashed with some groups of protesters who set trash cans on fire.

Municipal authorities banned gatherings in the central Place de la Concorde and the neighboring Champs-Élysées today after riots in the previous days led to 61 arrests.
Earlier in the French capital, a group of students and activists from the Permanent Revolution collective entered the Forum des Halles shopping mall, called on people to go on a general strike and chanted “Paris, rise up”.
