France: Banned and authorized mass protests against Israel invasion of the Gaza strip

Paris is one of the largest destination for tourists from all over the world. Tourists and locals were caught in unauthorized mass protests today.
The protest in Paris was banned by French Authorities. Despite this Pro-Palestinian protesters have clashed with police at a rally against Israel’s action in Gaza.

Thousands took part in the protest in Paris, despite it being banned. Some threw stones and bottles at riot police, who responded with tear gas.

In addition authorised rallies took place in many French cities on Saturday.

French Prime Minister Francois Hollande said the ban on the Paris protest was needed to preserve “public order” after last weekend’s clashes.

The ban, which was considered rare in France, was criticised by some activists and the Greens party.

In London and other European cities thousands of people also took part in a protest, calling for an end to Israel’s ground campaign and rocket attacks on Gaza.
