Antifa Riots Mark May Day Demonstrations in Paris

Violence erupted during May Day demonstrations in Paris on Tuesday, with over 1,000 black-clad anarchists bombing local businesses, according to Reuters.

Antifa rioters disrupted the annual left wing May Day event, turning the demonstration toward violence.

Reuters reported that the rioters used “petrol bombs” on buildings and vehicles in the area:

Hundreds of hooded protesters held up an annual May Day demonstration in eastern Paris on Tuesday, with some smashing the windows of a McDonald’s restaurant and hurling petrol bombs inside, Reuters television images showed.

French police warned on Monday of possible clashes with far-left anarchist groups, known as Black Blocs, after a call on social media for a “Revolutionary Day”.

In the United States, these left-wing groups have been more active in the age of Trump. Federal investigators have even looked into Antifa groups’ potential plans for domestic terrorism.
