The protesters are marching from the Place de la Nation toward the Place de la Republique, holding anti-discrimination and anti-racism banners. While the rally is being held in a peaceful manner, there is a possibility that skirmishes may occur.

Since February, a wave of protests prompted by police brutality occurred in France. The man, named only by his first name, Theo, was beaten up by police officers after a routine check triggered an altercation. The victim was hospitalized and underwent a surgery. Reports of the incident sparked off two weeks of unrest in Paris that led to arrests of more than 240 people.
On February 5, one of the police officers that detained Theo was charged with rape, and three of his colleagues with deliberate violence.
