Why is Paris burning?

By Global

In this special episode of The News Agents, Lewis travels to Paris to find out why the City of Lights is on fire.

Amidst the tear gas, the riot police, the stun grenades and the flames, The News Agents ask- what's happened? why is it this bad? And why could this riot be the start of a new, far-right, European order?

It all comes as huge protests have erupted across France after President Emmanuel Macron forced through a rise in the country’s pension age.
