‘The truth for Adama’ is a movement which was started in 2016 after 24-year old Adama Traore died in unexplained circumstances while in police custody after being arrested by gendarmes during an identity check in his home town of Beaumont-sur-Oise, just outside Paris.
The Yellow Vests movement started as a protest against planned fuel tax hikes in France, but has since evolved into a broader anti-government movement which even spread to other European countries.
The joint protest call targeting police brutality came after recent clashes between Yellow Vest protesters and the police on Sunday 14 July.
