About 200 protests against labor reforms were planned across France on September 12, in what has been described as President Emmanuel Macron’s “first real test” since coming to power. In Paris, violence broke out between some protesters and police, as this footage shows. Police fired tear gas to try to disperse the crowds. Later in the footage, a naked protester is seen playing guitar while walking towards police lines. The new laws, which Macron helped formulate during his time in the government of Francois Hollande and which were to the fore in his election campaign, will loosen restrictions around the hiring and firing of employees.
