In a tweet, the police headquarters added "maintain its device this Sunday" to prevent demonstrators from anti-pass convoys from blocking the capital.

During the night from Saturday to Sunday, the police intervened, according to the PP, in the Champs-Elysées district and in the Bois de Boulogne to "verbalize and disperse" the last participants in this demonstration prohibited by the prefect police, Didier Lallement.

Objective Brussels

A hundred motorhomes were in the Bois de Boulogne, said a police source.

220 vehicles spent the night in Seine-et-Marne and 120 in Val-d'Oise, according to the same source.

The watchword of the organizers of the anti-pass convoys is to hit the road around 10 a.m. to reach Brussels where a large rally is planned for Monday.

But, according to a police source, not all participants should follow this order.

At the beginning of the afternoon on Saturday, more than a hundred vehicles had managed to reach the Champs-Elysées, which were gradually evacuated by the police with tear gas.

Everything about the "Freedom Convoy"

In addition, the Paris police chief on Sunday asked for an internal administrative investigation following the broadcast on social networks of a video showing a policeman hitting a man on the Champs-Elysées on Saturday.

“A video is currently circulating on social networks following a police intervention on the Champs-Elysées.

The prefect is having an internal administrative investigation launched, ”tweeted the police headquarters.

This video shows a member of the security forces going towards a man and beating him with a truncheon on the head, before leaving.

The man has a head wound.
