As we reported on Monday, France President Emmanuel Macon announced new COVID measures that included mandatory COVID vaccines for health workers, a “health pass” to access the cinema, trains, restaurants as well as in hospitals, retirement homes, medical and social establishments, but also in planes, trains and buses for long trips, curfews, and even “pension reform” where people will “have to work longer and retire later.”
Today was Bastille Day in France, and many people took to the streets to protest, and many clashed with police. Here are some of the videos appearing on Twitter.
Two videos from YT on the ongoing yellow vest protests in France. The first one gives a graphic view of the force of the police there (80K of them, and previous reports say they are believed to have been infiltrated by EU German forces) & the second a glimpse into the very brutal police retaliation, rubber bullets at close very range, (dropping tear gas from helicopters in other videos), also graphic footage of outright beating of innocent by standers, one an elderly man at a bus stop with his wife that has gone viral. Disturbing times. Just watching this situation.
