Illegal French ravers clash with police at days-long party

An illegal rave that’s been going on since New Year’s Eve has drawn at least 2,500 revelers to a massive French warehouse — and cops who try to bust it up are being met with violence.

By early Saturday local time, one police vehicle had been torched and several officers had been injured outside the rave in Brittany. 

The massive rager just keeps going despite the country’s 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew to curb the spread of the coronavirus. 

The BBC reported that some ravers planned to stay put until Tuesday. 

It’s gotten so out of control that France’s Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin late Friday called a crisis meeting, the outlet reported. 

Vehicle exits from the warehouse were blocked and police warnings to remaining partygoers were issued, the report said. 

France has reported more than 64,000 virus-related deaths since the start of the pandemic.
