Police Fire Tear Gas to Disperse May Day Demonstrators in Lyon

French police fired tear gas to disperse demonstrators gathered in Lyon for May Day protests on May 1.

Video filmed near the Rhone River in Lyon shows a protester holding a rubber bullet, saying he was struck by munition from a non-lethal weapon used by French police.

Clouds of tear gas can be seen in the streets as protesters flee, covering their eyes and mouths.

Demonstrations took place across France on Wednesday.

An estimated 151,000 took to the streets across the nation, according to BFMTV.

In Lyon, between 6,200 and 9,500 demonstrators were reported to have demonstrated, hundreds of whom were said to be associated with the Yellow Vest movement, Le Monde said.
