French protesters in cars, campervans, tractors, and other vehicles attempted to enter Paris this weekend. But thousands of police officers stood in the way of the Freedom Convoy, which was inspired by Canadian lorry protests. Some vehicles managed to breach police defenses and drove into central Paris, snarling traffic. Protesters denounced covid restrictions and declining standards of living. Police used tear gas on some protesters.
