In front of the Ministère de la Crise du Logement, protestors (many of them victims of the lack of housing or decent housing) sat for the whole day, and slept in the tents. Here, food is being delivered inside the building.
They were expelled by approx. 120 policemen during the night, between 4 and 5 in the morning, when no media was present. Official version of a calm operation was contradicted by testimonies interviewed later by BFM TV, describing children being dragged on the pavement out of the tents :-( Some people were relocated to a center in the 19e, some fled in the metro and others took refuge in the Ministère de la Crise du Logement. One person was hurt and attended by the firemen.
