Burning Man Paris.
France, 2018.
Saturday, December 1, 2018. New day of demonstration in Paris around the popular movement called yellow vests. All over France, cities have experienced various fates, some demonstrations taking place in a good spirit, others turning sour with wounded and prefectural buildings burned down. In Paris, in the afternoon, the small crowd of demonstrators in which thugs and other men in black had mingled, suffered the assaults of the police officers, the repeated tear gas fire ... In parallel avenues, cars were set on fire. Day of insurrection in the beautiful districts of the capital of love. After that, everything is always relative, it was not on May 7, 2008 in Beirut either: as long as the demonstrators are not the holders of weapons, there remains a State. Even with all its imperfections.
In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.
This Saturday afternoon, I saw:
- yellow vests supporters of En-Avant Guingamp who came with their family
- ignorant morons compare their mobilization to Maidan (Ukrainian revolution of 2013-2014)
- ultra-right or ultra-left breakers, with nunchaku and brass knuckles
- frankly free tear gas shots
- demonstrators armed with tennis rackets to send back the same tear gas grenades
- yellow vests sing the Marseillaise
- police officers surrounding the Place de l'Etoile to contain the demonstrators in this space where there is ultimately not much to break
- other yellow vests protect the flame of the unknown soldier
- missing cobblestones on the ground
- other yellow vests making fingers of honor to the helicopter hovering above their heads
- police vans voluntarily freeing the access to avenue Kléber and rushing too quickly into the crowd
- a relatively small crowd
- BM burns on the sidewalk
In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.
