Clashes at Paris protest against racism and deadly police violence


Paris: On Tuesday, there was a clash between Paris and the police and protesters. About 20,000 people had previously disregarded a ban on rally because the ban was met by the United States against racism and the death of a black man detained by the police in 2016. Encouraged by violent demonstrations by deadly police.

Protesters used the slogan of the American protest movement to call for justice for Adama Traore. Adama Traore’s death was a cause of the brutality against French police four years ago.

The demonstration was caused after two different medical reports were released. The demonstration was the cause of Traore’s death. The police banned demonstrations on the grounds that it was forbidden to carry coronavirus for more than 10 people.

Agence France-Presse witnesses said the protests began in the evening outside the northern court in Paris, when projectiles were thrown and the police used tear gas to disperse the crowd.

Sporadic clashes took place near the city’s main road, throwing stones at the police, who responded by firing rubber bullets.

Some protesters burned trash cans, bicycles and scooters, and set fire barriers on the streets.

Christophe Castaner, the interior minister, responded that “violence has no place in a democratic country.”

He tweeted: “There is no reason to prove what happened in Paris tonight, when protests on public streets were banned to protect everyone’s health.”

Many protesters drew inspiration from protest movements across the United States, which were held high when police killed a defenseless black George Floyd last week.

Earlier that day, Traor’s sister Assa addressed a large crowd.

She said: “Today, we are not only talking about the struggle of the Traore family. This is everyone’s struggle. When we are fighting for George Floyd, we are fighting for Adama Traore.”

“What is happening in the United States echoes what is happening in France.”

Other protests were held throughout France, with 2,500 people participating in rallies in the northern city of Lille, 1800 people in Marseille and 1200 people in Lyon.

The Traore case has long caused controversy in France.

After controversy over identity checks, 24-year-old Traore was arrested in a house, and he hid in 2016 in a 15-minute pursuit led by the police.

One of the three arresters told investigators that they used their weight to fix Traore.

Traore lost consciousness and died in a nearby police station. When the paramedics arrived, he was still handcuffed.

On Friday, French medical experts forgave the three police officers, saying that Treo did not die from “location suffocation” and ruled out the police who fixed him on the ground.

On the contrary, experts discovered that Traore died of heart failure, which may be due to “strong stress” and physical exertion and the potential health condition caused by the presence of tetrahydrocannabinol (the active ingredient of cannabis) in the body.

The result of the investigation was the third official report of the removal official, which dismissed the previous medical report commissioned by the young man’s family, which stated that he died of suffocation.

But on Tuesday, the Traore family commissioned a new investigation, saying that his death was caused by the arrest method used by the officers.

The conflicting medical reports also echo the case of George Floyd. George Floyd’s initial autopsy revealed that he died of a previous heart disease, and an autopsy scheduled by his family found him to die of persistent suffocation.

Floyd’s official autopsy subsequently confirmed that he died in a homicide involving “compressed neck”.

Paris police chief Didier Lallement, who banned protests, wrote to the police earlier Tuesday to defend his actions.

He said that he felt sympathy for the “painful” officers, and he must feel that “in the face of accusations of violence and racism, social networks and some radical organizations continue to repeat such accusations.”

In an email to 27,500 law enforcement officers in the city, he insisted that the Paris Police Force “is neither violent nor racist: it acts within the framework of everyone’s right to freedom.”

In the long-term “yellow vest” anti-government rally and the recent anti-pension reform strike, several French officers also conducted investigations into the cruel treatment of the public.

Dozens of protesters were maimed by rubber bullets or stun grenades, some of which lost their eyes or hands.
