Protestors hurled smoke bombs at the entrance of Shoreditch House, where the UK launch of Creative France – Business France’s new campaign to promote French creativity – was taking place.
Dozens of campaigners clad in black and wearing masks held on the banners bearing slogans in solidarity for refugees.
CEO of Business France Muriel Penicaud was reportedly attending an event inside the building in central London at the time the demonstrators gathered.
Police were forced to blockade the entrance as protestors handed out leaflets criticising the French Government’s decision to move migrants on.
