Chilean slogans, and now the French Internationale song, while the cortege is slowly arriving at the Guillotière bridge.

Iirc, the desmonstration is not authorized to reach the peninsula and city center because of the Lights Festivities (Fête des Lumières). But the procession keep going straight anyway, towards the Guillotière bridge.

"Everyboy together, everybody together, general strike".

Some tensions, police first charges and tear gas.

"Allez les blacks" An overthrown glass container provides ammos of empty bottles.

Sign reads "Our experts are formal, your new world sucks big time"
