Thousands of people converged on the French town of Nice to show their anger about current EU policies and globalising capitalism, and to discuss alternatives to them. Protestors attempted to blockade the venue of the European Union summit where EU leaders gathered to hammer out the future of the block. Heavy clashes between police and protestors followed, as police bombarded activists with concussion grenades and tear gas. A Banque Nationale de Paris office was set alight.
