Macron harangued by students over police violence

The ‘Mr Smooth’ of French politics Emmanuel Macron found himself under fire over the actions of the state during a meeting in Brussels. In this video from the Irish Times pages students unfurl a banner saying the French government has blood stained hands.

One of the protesters than challenges him over the beating of student demonstrators by police and the use of stun grenades against protesters at ‘Notre Dames des Landes’ the site of the proposed new Airport near Nantes/Naoned in Brittany – which has now been withdrawn:
