The protest took place near Le Pre Catalan restaurant in the park, where a Congress of human resource managers was taking place.
France has been engulfed in turmoil over the upcoming a labor reform. French trade unions are worried that it will deprive workers of their rights because it will be easier for enterprises to fire their employees under the new labor code.
On Tuesday, a mass rally in France turned violent after a group of protesters started throwing projectiles at the police and destroying property. The police responded with tear gas and batons to push back the protesters and detained several people.
