Violent protests continue for yet another weekend in Paris, with rioters destroying police vehicles, as well as throwing stones and flares.
Rabat – On Saturday, Paris was rocked by a massive number of protesters, destroying police vehicles with stones and fire.
Police, for the first time since the launch of the protest, fired tear gas to disperse protesters.
One protester had a different approach to ending the violent demonstrations. Bursting into tears, the woman called for the clashes to end.
While wearing a yellow vest, the protester was heard saying, “But look what you do to us! You should be ashamed of yourself…. We don’t even hate you!”
As she fell on the ground crying, she exclaimed, “You should be with us for the people, for France, for our homeland, for our nation!”
She added that protesters are not carrying arms.
Translation: “But look what you do to us! You should be ashamed of yourself…We don’t even hate you!.. You should be with us, for the people, for France, for our homeland, for our Nation!”
I wonder if she’s complaining about fuel prices or being replaced by the Third World ? pic.twitter.com/tQ0bYejG9u
