Update from Chris in France, re ActeXI #GiletsJaunes Bright Night:
THREAD
/1
"A mail before tonight, we're all out for the bright night to begin. Honestly, I'm quite scared.
Earlier today, they've hit Jérôme Rodrigues, one of our famous yellow vests, while he was doing nothing but filming yellow vests."
/2
Here is his own video
He gets attacked at 9:15. It was a shooting at close range (even less than 8 meters away, straight to his face).
/3
"He has at least lost his eye, still is unconscious. He had no weapon, and was not being violent."

Chris continues: "People are enraged bc of it (and just before the Yellow night ! It's as if they want us to loose it !) & at the same time, we're so scared because we have nothing to defend ourselves and the police seems ready to become downright murderers even on pacifists."
/5
"The media talks about intimidation strategy, we talk about murder attempts."

Chris writes:
"Some people tried to burn down a bank earlier there today."

Chris, speaking of the atmosphere at the Yellow Vest protests today:
"The atmosphere is so scary, you wouldn't believe it. A man told me he had been in Irak for war, and had never been scared that way. Same for a woman reporter who had been in Syrie. "
/8
"The thing is: we are totally defenseless. We have been searched for weapons before the demonstration, just like every saturday before.
When Gandhi's warriors once advanced, the opposite side killed only one line of them, it's well known."

.."And they stopped right after, bc it's inhuman to shoot on défenseless people. But here, it's worse, they don't stop! They're totally barmy! Lost all humanity!"

"Éric Drouet has gone to the hospital where his friend Jérôme is, and I can't help but feel that this was wanted too!"
Chris ends with:
"I can't help but feel we're all going to be shoot in the darkness of the night ! When nobody can see very well ! But my friends are here too........
Wish me luck.
I feel I'm going to need it."

UPDATE:
"The Yellow Night has ended without any dead person, as far as I know. Thank Goodness. The policemen forced people not to demonstrate anymore. But with not too much violence. And people went back home before 22h00. "
