Marches against violence and discrimination

France 3/Scoop, Mar 20

Hundreds of people took to the streets on Sunday to denounce police violence and discrimination. Meetings were held in several towns in Languedoc and Roussillon, the largest in Perpignan and Montpellier.

In Montpellier, the collective "migrants bienvenus 34" organised the gathering, but most like-minded associations and left-wing political parties were present.

In Perpignan, about 250 people marched on Sunday morning. Many have reminded us, in the middle of the presidential campaign, that  policies about racism are notably lacking.

The abuse of the state of emergency and police violence were also denounced. The two demonstrations were peaceful.
