Riots Engulf Paris As Residents Rebel Against Lockdown

Paris erupted in riots for a second night as resident rebels against police enforced lockdown measures. Measures which many of the resident believe to be “racist.” As The Daily Mail reports:

Anger erupted in the French capital last night and during the early hours of Monday morning over alleged ‘racist’ police attacks.

In response, police used tear gas and baton charges in Villeneuve-la-Garenne, northern Paris, on Monday morning as fireworks exploded in the street…

President Emmanuel Macron has extended France‘s social distancing measures until May 11. Its daily death toll from the virus fell to the lowest level in three weeks today as 395 deaths were recorded, bringing the total to 19,718, though deaths are typically under-reported over the weekend.

Fireworks dyed the sky red above the Parisian suburb early this morning, videos posted on social media show.

As unrest continues to grow across the world over the draconian lockdown measures, it may only be a matter of time till similar unrest reaches other parts of the world, including the United States.
