Last week, when we reported on the latest clashes between French police and protesters in the ongoing labor reform saga, we said that “police used tear gas to disperse thousands of angry activists across the nation, who are protesting new labor reforms.” According to the proposed reform states, employers would pay only 10% of overtime bonus, instead of the current 25%, making local workers understandably angry.

In Paris the protest started in Place de la Nation, the same place where previous anti-labor rallies took place. The demonstrators threw bottles with flammable liquid and stones at police officers. Video footage relayed on social media showed some hooded youths jumping on cars and taunting police. CGT chief Martinez played down reports of a dozen arrests, saying there was often a bit of trouble caused by “some people who have nothing to do with the issue”.
