March of the mutilated: Injured Yellow Vests protest police brutality in Paris
French protesters demand ban of ‘less-lethal’ weapons used by police which blew people’s hands off & left dozens without an eye
The only way to stop police brutality is to make the police afraid of the public; the only way to make the police fear you is for the public to brutalize the police. Protests are for scared little girls; action is for the men. Actions always speak louder than words.
People gathered in central Paris on Sunday, the day after ‘Act 29’ of the Yellow Vest protests. The demonstrators carried banners, showing injuries – such as lost eyes and limbs – various protesters have received over the past few months and demanding a ban of the ‘less-lethal’ weapons used by police.
All in all, the event was attended by some 300-400 protesters. A group of maimed Yellow Vests were also in attendance, with each one carrying a small placard highlighting the injury they received. “I’ve lost my sense of smell,” “I’ve lost my eye at the age of 21,” “I was shot by a LBD in my carotid artery,” read some of the placards.
The protesters called to ban such launchers altogether, as well as another police implement – the GLI-F4 grenade – that has also caused many injuries among the Yellow Vests. The GLI-F4 is a so-called “instant tear gas grenade,” that is actually an explosive munition, packing 30 grams of TNT and capable of making a loud bang and releasing a small cloud of tear gas.

I love it. Mohammedans know how to deal with each other. The ruling shiites of Iraq know that a sunni caliphate would wipe them out. ‘Exterminate the brutes’ in reverse!
