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.

      C'etait pas censé etre une manif pacifiste...?

    10. °]° 30 months ago | reply

      Si, et ça l'est resté sur le parvis de l'Hôtel de Ville.
      Ceci est arrivé quand une partie des manifestants a décidé d'aller soutenir une manifestation place du Châtelet.

      pas "soutenir la manif", mais empecher la repression, de plus il faut rajouter que les manifestants n'ont pascassé, frappé ou insulté la police donc ils etaient aussi pacifistes...

      C'est une manifestante pacifique qui est en sang sur la photo, pas un policier... la violence c'est eux!
