Paris, 🇫🇷

1000’s of French citizens gathered on Trocadero Square, in front of the Eiffel Tower, for a catch-all demonstration against the government.

Police charge against French protesters in Paris.
Notice white helmets : they are members of BRAV-M special police units.
Anarchists and black-blocs/antifa siding alongside populists with Yellow Vests and people waving the French flag (waving the French flag is considered far right in France).
Protesters used public equipment to build barricades to protect themselves from water canons and grenades.
Violent police charge against protesters, to arrest the most virulent leaders.
An independent journalist was attacked in the back by a police man "tackling" him. The journalist is the man wearing a white protective helmet, who fall on the ground.
Riot police deployed water canona to control the crowd.
Another video showing the moment when an independent journalist was "tackled" in the back by a police officer.
Medieval Vibes as police men are using their shield and tonfa as "war drums", to impress protesters and force them to back up.
Another video of a police charge tonight, showing BRAV-M special unit of the police (in white helmets). BRAV-M is a police unit specialised in blitz tactics to break riots and demonstrations, by quickly intervening to arrest leaders or show coercitive force.
As surprising as it may appear, some Gendarme Mobile companies removed their helmets after protesters demanded it, as a sign to appease situation. The crowd answer with applauses.
Other video showing Gendarmes removing their protective helmet to appease the situation. Instead, they replace the helmet with their calot (traditional light hat).

⚠️ Note that not all police units removed their helmets. CRS and BRAV-M kept their whole protective equipment.
Note also that despite some protesters applauding the police officers removing their helmets, other protesters kept insulting them. The situation is not manichean. But still this is a symbolical action.

The following was picked up from a gofundme page, organised or a victim of the latest C0V1D-19 trials, Patricia Chandler.
If you find yourself reading this I would like to first thank you for taking time out of your day to let me share my cousin Pattys’ story with you.

Patricia was involved in a COVID-19 vaccine study recently and has had a severe adverse reaction.
She has not been able to walk or go to work for almost 3 weeks now because of huge bleeding sores on her feet. These sores are called a Fixed Drug Eruption for those who may want to dig a little deeper into how this comes about..

Dr. Roger Hodkinson, Chairman of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons committee in Ottawa, CEO of a large private medical laboratory in Edmonton, Alberta..
..and Chairman of a Medical Biotechnology company SELLING THE COVID-19 TEST:


"There is utterly unfounded public hysteria driven by the media and politicians. This is the biggest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspected public.
There is absolutely nothing that can be done to contain this virus. This is nothing more than a bad flu season. It's politics playing medicine and that's a very dangerous game.


"There is no action needed...Masks are utterly useless.
