Tensions as protesters gather in memory of dead French activist

An activist from the FNE (France Nature Environnement) holds a buttercup-shaped banner during a rally on November 2, 2014 in Paris in memory of Remi Fraisse, a 21-year-old environmental activist who died during a demonstration last weekendProtesters in several parts of France gathered in a sometimes tense atmosphere Sunday in memory of an eco-activist who was killed last weekend during a demonstration against a controversial dam project. The gatherings in Paris and on the site of the Sivens project in the southwestern region of Tarn came a day after similar protests erupted in violence, leaving several demonstrators and police injured. Remi Fraisse, 21, died last Sunday as people protesting against the dam project clashed violently with security forces, and investigations into the case suggest he may have been killed by a police concussion grenade. In Paris Sunday, some 300 people got together in the northeastern Stalingrad district without prior authorisation, shouting slogans such as “police everywhere, justice nowhere”, encircled by security forces who used tear gas when some tried to force their way past them.
