France: Protesters revolt outside police grenade factory

Hundreds of protesters rallied outside an explosives factory on Friday commemorating the death of Remi Fraisse in Pont du Buis, one year on. Protesters hurled rocks and tear gas at a meagre police force who had to call in for backup after they were outnumbered by the group. The protest had significant symbolic value as it was held outside the old powder factory which makes explosive weaponry for the French police. One year ago, 21-year -old Remi Fraisse was killed by a explosive fired by french police during another protest over a controversial dam project. The death caused outrage across France and has since been used as an instigator to hold rallies to oppose police aggression.
