Tens of thousands of people marched through the streets of Nantes on Saturday to protest against French President Emmanuel Macron's labour and economic policies.
Water cannons and tear gas were deployed to disperse protesters.
The rally was organised by different trade unions and left-wing organizations under the message "for equality, social justice and solidarity".
"I think there won't be a saviour for us, it is a general strike by various professions to block the policy of this government, and this is the only way. This is what we call. It's what we call class struggle," one protester said.
Anti-Macron demonstrations, which organisers call "popular tide", were held all over France on Saturday.
