May Day Smoke

This photo was taken during the May Day protest that took place on 01/05/2018 in Paris. The big column of smoke comes from two cars that were taken out of an agency and burnt by several unidentified protesters. At the moment, we could not know what was going on, as the police did not call for the dismissal of protesters and tear gas had just been started to be thrown at the front of the protest so we could not get any closer. Later that day, we learned that, not only had two cars been burnt, but also, a Mc Donalds that was located at the ground floor of the building seen on the photograph, had been destroyed.
