A protest by French farmers has taken place in Paris. Large crowds gathered to decry the low prices of agricultural produce. Prices are being driven down by the sanctions exchange with Russia, which has caused domestic produce to flood the French market.

The protest started near the Gare de Lyon railway station, but then moved to the Porte de Vincennes – one of the city gates in Paris.

There were police and fire brigades on the scene, ready to intervene, but it didn’t run to that.

Hundreds of egg crates were fed into a wood cutter, which sprayed them towards a building. Over 100 demonstrators at the spot were waving flags.

Protesters built make-shift barricades out of straw and covered the street with shreds of newspaper that they promised to set on fire.
