CNN Live: Prof Bruno Perreau on the unrest in France

Published on: July 5, 2023

Literature Professor Bruno Perreau weighs in on the ongoing unrest in France: “France needs to change the way police are controlled;” and “must learn from minority experience.”

More than 400 people were arrested across France on Thursday as a wave of protests swept the country for a third night following the fatal police shooting of a teenage boy that was captured on video.

France’s elite police force, the RAID, were deployed to the cities of Bordeaux, Lyon, Roubaix, Marseille and Lille, to help contain the protests.

Confrontations flared up between protesters and police in the Parisian suburb of Nanterre – where the 17-year-old named Nahel was killed days before – and in the southern port city of Marseille.
