Several hundred protesters yelling “Macron resign!” and singing La Marseillaise mass on the Champs Elysees and the Place de la Concorde, hoping to march toward the Elysee Palace, Macron’s official residence. Riot police blocked their path but several hundreds of people managed to get around them using side streets to get close to the Elysee Palace in the afternoon before being driven back by tear gas.

Policemen got together in front of the Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris singing La Marseillaise, the country’s national anthem, while applauding every police siren passing nearby. The officers complain that they are not even well enough equipped to defend themselves and are calling for Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve’s resignation, Le Parisien reported.
