Antifa members in France reacted to the outcome of the first round of the presidential election by rioting in several cities because they didn’t like the result.
Populist Marine Le Pen will face off against incumbent Emmanuel Macron in the second and final round of the election in two weeks after the pair racked up the most votes out of all the candidates.
This apparently displeased members of the far-left Antifa extremist group, who responded to the democratic vote by rioting in several major cities.
Rennes, Brittany saw innumerable acts of arson and several violent clashes last night in the aftermath of the vote.
