  • 24 November – November 2021 English Channel disaster
  • 27 November - Black-clad 'Antifa' rioters in France attacked police officers with fists, projectiles and metal barriers, at a Paris protest they claimed was "against state violence and the extreme right. Footage from earlier in the afternoon shows rioters dismantling barricades and setting off flares, which apparently marked the point at which the demonstration turned violent. Police responded by firing tear gas into the crowd. It is unclear how many people, if any, were arrested. Saturday's protest played out against the backdrop of wider demonstrations against the government's Covid-19 restrictions and the strict French health pass system.[12]
