PARIS (Sputnik) - Clashes between protesters against health passes and the police continue in Paris, with law enforcement using tear gas against demonstrators, a Sputnik correspondent reported.
Clashes broke out again at Boulevard Poissonniere in the second arrondissement of the French capital. Protesters threw bottles, trash, and chairs at policemen, who used gas in response to these provocations.
A video was shared online, showing some of the protesters throwing firecrackers towards police officers.
Today's demonstration marks the ninth straight weekend of protests.
In July, President Emmanuel Macron announced a number of restrictions to contain the spread of COVID-19, including the mandatory use of health passes — indicating either immunity against COVID-19 or a negative PCR test - in bars, restaurants, planes, and long-distance trains starting from August.
