Indignants (05) - 15Oct11, Paris (France)

[Taken in Paris (France) - 15Oct11]


During the worldwide Indignant's day, as around 1500 people gathered in Paris in a peaceful protest, a big part of them responded to someone calling them to support a protest taking place 100m away and having trouble with the police.

That protest was against the French politics in Africa, but mostly pro-Gbagbo, what wasn't announced.

Things got ugly with police forces charging with unnecessary and extreme brutality.

It was the perfect illustration of people so eager to protest and help the oppressed that they got mislead into a bloody wrong fight.
