G7 Summit

G7 Summit - Anti-globalisation and climate activists have teamed up with yellow vest protesters and Basque nationalists ahead of a G7 meeting in France this weekend to confront a rich-poor divide they say is growing. At a "counter-G7" summit 50 NGOs are meeting to protest at economic and climate policies pursued by the world's leading industrial countries and to promote alternatives. This weekend thousands of anti-riot police will block access to Biarritz as authorities fear a repeat of the looting, rioting and car-torching in Paris mid-December last year, when the French capital saw the worst urban violence since the May 1968 student protests.
