At least three bangs have been heard at the scene of the protest, a RIA Novosti correspondent on the spot reported, adding that police had deployed tear gas against the demonstrators.
The protest briefly broke out after polling stations closed Sunday and preliminary results showed that Emmanuel Macron had won the presidential election. After the results of the first round of the elections on April 23, people on social media have been calling for a boycott of the second round under the hashtags #nimacronnilepen (neither Macron, nor Le Pen) and #SansMoiLe7Mai (May 7 without me). In the meantime, protests took place in several cities across France. In the eastern city of Strasbourg, the rally against “fascists and capitalists” turned violent, with protesters throwing stones at police, FranceInfo reported.
This should just prove to all of the world that Antifa and like groups involved do not simply care what side wins or loses, as this simply shows that Antifa and like groups are nothing more than a worldwide anarchist terrorist group sponsored by the obvious evil. Like come on folks Le Pen lost the French election today who Antifa claims as being a fascist, and here we are with French Antifa protesting in the streets of France even after Le Pen loses.
This should be a sign to American law enforcement that Antifa will cause chaos simply just to cause chaos and could really care less about the outcome of an election whether it's America or France. Antifa in America and in Europe don't simply care about right or left the whole goal of the group is anarchy and lock down, and these goals of Antifa are truly showing with violently protesting across France even after a Le Pen election loss.
