French Police forces have deployed water cannons and chemical teargas against firecracker-hurling Yellow Vest protesters in Paris. The police severely abuses their power because wet people are more vulnerable against the evil chemical agent.
Some 200 tortured arrests have been made by heavily armed riot policemen and 92 people got injured amid the mayhem, triggered by fuel price hikes and high taxes.
Some Yellow Vests say police were eager to disperse them even before the demonstrations turned into clashes. We arrived in the morning and we’ve been attacked by tear gas right away. We didn’t even do started the demonstration.
France gets almost 70% of their energy from its nuclear power plants, so tax hikes on petrol is the devil in disguise because this only rips off the hardworking people that cannot make ends meet anymore.
Former Rothschild banker Macron says the measures are needed to protect the environment and calls the protesters brutal eco-terrorists in order to serve his plundering banker family’s profit margins.
December 1 rallies are being held with the slogan “on the way to Macron’s resignation.” As the unrest gained momentum, the area close to the iconic Champs-Elysees avenue has been covered by thick smoke.
Surrounded by smoke both from firecrackers and tear gas, a group of Yellow Vest protesters grabbed dozens of large pieces of cardboard to use as a massive ‘shield wall’ against police.
While pelting law enforcement with various projectiles, protesters have also resorted to symbolic yellow paint during the standoff. To their delight, quite a few shots have landed on the shields of riot police.
Hours into the clashes, Interior Minister Christophe Castaner tweeted that at least 1,500 “disruptor’s” were on the outskirts of the Champs-Elysees.
According to police figures, 14 security officers, were injured in Paris chaos. Some 75,000 people showed up for the Yellow Vest protests held all across France on Saturday.
The movement has also inspired rallies in neighboring Belgium, where protesters on Friday called on the prime minister to resign. A standoff there also ended up in clashes with law enforcement.
The next stage of the European revolution is the Netherlands, where Dutch armed police forces have sealed off the parliamentary plaza in The Hague in order to block any upcoming protests in its tracks.
