EVENT – Umbrellas versus tear gas. Clashes between sympathizers and opponents of Eric Zemmour broke out this Saturday, October 30 in the afternoon before a meeting of the far-right essayist and real false presidential candidate, at the Zenith of Nantes, forcing the forces of the order to use tear gas, noted an AFP photographer.
Between 300 and 400 opponents who came to demonstrate against the arrival of the polemicist at the call in particular of the collective “Nantes revolted”, managed to enter the enclosure of the Zenith, to block a door of the site and to force the gates.
The police used tear gas to push back the anti-Zemmour who were facing, a hundred meters away, several dozen supporters of the polemicist, at the Atlantis parking lot, near the western ring road of Nantes.
Shortly before the arrival of Eric Zemmour at the Zenith in Nantes, the mobile gendarmes were trying, in a kind of game of cat and mouse, to push back the anti-Zemmour, who tried to block the four-lane separating the Zénith from the parking lot, according to AFP.
Several demonstrators also invaded a footbridge spanning the four-lane and launched several carts in the direction of the police positioned below, without causing injuries, according to the photographer.
Eric Zemmour is expected in Nantes for the promotion of his latest bookFrance has not said its last word.
