COVID-19: Canadian-inspired French convoy protest leaves Paris, headed to Belgium

Sponsored Post Vitamin D2 Canada Persia
A convoy protesting COVID-19 restrictions left Paris on Sunday morning and headed towards Brussels.

Around 150 cars had gathered in a car park in the north of capital in Villepinte. Their plan was to stop outside the northern city of Lille and head on to the Belgian capital after that.

On Saturday, the convoy had breached police defences and drove into central Paris, snarling traffic around the Arc de Triomphe and on the Champs Elysees, as police fired tear gas at demonstrators.

Inspired by horn-blaring "Freedom Convoy" demonstrations in Canada, dozens of vehicles slipped through the police cordon, impeding traffic around the 19th-century arch and the top of the boutique-lined Champs-Élysées, a magnet for tourists.
