Paris - “Anti-racist” demonstrators hurled anti-Semitic slurs at activists from the Generation Identity movement who were present at a mass protest in Paris today. Thousands assembled to denounce alleged police brutality and demand “justice” in the name of Adama Traore.

The demonstration was held by the Collectif Vérité (Truth Collective) organisation today. Like many cities across North America and Europe, Paris has seen a series of mass protests by “anti-racist” groups in recent weeks that were inspired by massive riots in the United States sparked by the death of George Floyd, a black man who died while being taken into police custody in Minneapolis nearly three weeks ago.

Today’s protest was held in the name of Adama Traore, a black man who died in France in 2016 while being taken into police custody. Traore was approached by officers for a routine identity check but ran because he didn’t have his identity card on him. He died while being apprehended, which police insist was the result of Traore’s underlying health conditions rather than an excessive use of force. A report released last month cleared all of the officers involved of any wrongdoing, which triggered renewed protests.

Another demonstration in Traore’s name was held in Paris last week and drew approximately 20,000 demonstrators, as previously reported by Voice of Europe.

At one point during the protest, activists from the anti-immigration patriotic group Generation Identity unfurled a banner from a nearby building during today’s event which denounced anti-white racism. Some demonstrators tried to tear it down while some screamed insults at the identitarians. Many called them “dirty Jews,” according to a report by Valeurs actuelles, and as can be heard in videos taken at the scene.
The police said that these incidents are being referred to the Prosecutor’s Office for hate speech violations.
