Gay marriage opponents stage mass protest in Paris [View all]

Source: The Guardian

Tens of thousands of people registered a final, furious protest against same-sex marriage on Sunday, days before the first wedding ceremony under a new law.

At least 150,000 protesters converged on Paris, marshalled by more than 4,500 police who were deployed after the government warned of a risk of violence and disruption.

Riot police evicted about a dozen far-right activists who used ladders to climb on to the roof of the Socialist party headquarters and unfurled a banner saying "Hollande resign".

The night before the demonstration, 50 people were arrested after chaining themselves to metal barriers they had placed in the middle of the Champs Elysées and firing smoke canisters. A van carrying masks, banners and smoke bombs was seized by police.
