France: Yellow Vests pay homage to deceased festival-goer in Paris

France, Paris
August 03, 2019 at 16:20 GMT +00:00 · Published

Yellow Vest protesters paid homage to Steve Canico, the 24-year old man who fell in the Loire river in Nantes during a police action in June, as they marched through Paris for the 38th consecutive week on Saturday.

Protesters chanted "revolution" and carried signs accusing the police of being implicated in his death.

Footage shows protesters confronting police during the march and holding a minute of silence to pay tribute to Canico.

Canico's body was recovered from the Loire river on Monday, hundreds of metres from the spot where he was seen for the last time on the night between 21 and 22 June, when the police forcefully dispersed the revellers allegedly forcing some into the river in the process. According to many participants, police deployed tear gas and used batons during the action.
