Paris is a great place to celebrate Christmas, and nothing predicted the ‘storm’. This city is famous for its constant protests, but now what we see in Paris seems really serious. Paris is under attack of the fuel protests caused by the fuel tax increase and lead to violent protests that remind revolution. I would like to share the video made by a famous Russian youtube blogger Varlamov, where he participated in this riot and highlighted the protests from the inside.
‘Yellow Vest’ protesters used fire, burned cars, and smashed windows. The police and riot squads used gas and water cannons to stop the crowd, according to NYTimes.
According to BBC – “At least 110 people were injured, including 17 members of the security forces, and 270 arrests were made.” The President Emmanuel Macron said ‘I will never accept violence,’ and added that ‘They will be identified and brought to justice for their actions.’
