Posted on 05/05/2017 3:22:09 PM PDT by Lorianne
French police were pelted with Molotov cocktails and fireworks as hundreds of anti-Marine Le Pen activists hijacked the annual May Day march on Monday.
Officers were pictured on fire while demonstrators were hit with tear gas and charged with batons as scenes turned ugly ahead of a speech by Le Pen and her presidential opponent Emmanuel Macron.
Meanwhile dozens of anti-Erdogan marchers were detained in Turkey after they tried to walk to Taksim Square, an iconic protest space that had been declared off-limits by police.
Ugly clashes between protesters and police were also photographed in the US, Italy, Indonesia and the Philippines.
In France National Front founder Jean-Marie Le Pen held a rally ahead of competing events being put on by his daughter and presidential hopeful Marine Le Pen and her rival, Emmanuel Macron.
May 1, also known as Labour Day or International Workers' Day, is supposed to be a celebration of the working classes, but is also used by activists to demand better rights.

Those who were never taught history..............
What is an “anti-Marine Le Pen protester?”
Somebody protesting against Marine Le Pen, a presidential candidate.
Did they import them from Berkeley?
You should see Anti Ave Vigoda protesters. They’re the worst.
Makes just as much sense.
Just another below the belt shot by the press.
Seriously, a better headline for this article would have been “Communists Riot World-wide on May Day”
Did you mean "Abe Vigoda?"
“Those who were never taught history..............”
After 50 years of observing leftists, I can categorically state that for leftists, history always starts at breakfast.
Americans would think this would tick off French people and make them vote for Le Pen in reaction, but the French will have the opposite reaction and try to appease them by electing Macron. Surrender is what they do.
An air head follower trained by the Dems.
...and they didn’t SHOOT? What the hell is wrong with the leadership????
Don’t they issue grapeshot any more to handle the Paris mobs?
A little note to antifa, blm, etc in Maine.
Don’t do that here, you will not find us as kind and forgiving as the cops who are on fire.
They’re ordered to save their bullets for the right-wingers...
The French couldn’t save their sorry asses in WW2, the American GIs had to do the dirty work for them. What makes anyone think they are up to it now.
My uncle fought in WW1, and he said that when the American soldiers would walk into a french cafe, all the french patrons would get up acting disgusted and walk out.
Let France go to hell. They won’t protect their own country from the Muslim herds. But we will defend ours.
What is an anti-Marine Le Pen protester?
Technically it’s someone who is protesting people who are anti Marine LePen.
“You should see Anti Ave Vigoda protesters.”
Did you mean “Abe Vigoda?”
“Can you get me off the hook, Tom? For old time’s sake?”
You’re just Fishing....
