A protest by French farmers is taking place in Paris. Large crowds have gathered to decry the low prices of agricultural produce. Prices are being driven down by the sanctions exchange with Russia, which has caused domestic produce to flood the French market.

The protest started near the Gare de Lyon railway station, but then moved to the Porte de Vincennes – one of the city gates in Paris.

There are police and fire brigades on the scene, who are ready to intervene, but for the moment, they are standing their ground.

Hundreds of egg crates were fed into a wood cutter, which sprayed them towards a building. Over 100 demonstrators at the spot are waving flags.
