Eric Zemmour is put in a headlock as violence erupts at his first political rally

Telegraph, 06 Dec 2021
French hard-Right presidential candidate Eric Zemmour suffered a wrist injury after he was put in a headlock by a protester as violence erupted at his first political rally on Sunday.

The 63-year-old author and television commentator suffered the injury when a man grabbed him violently as he made his way towards the stage at a giant exhibition centre northeast of Paris, an aide told AFP.

It came as Mr Zemmour's supporters clashed with anti-racism activists who had come to disrupt the event.

In an hour-and-a-half-long speech to an estimated crowd of 10,000, Mr Zemmour promised to “reconquer” France and set out his vision of “zero immigration” as he launched salvos against the Left and mainstream media.
