French Protesters Brave Debilitating Injuries, Lost Eyes as Millions March to Oust Soros-Puppet Macron by Mike Walsh for Russia-Insider
France is likely witnessing the worst non-wartime bloodshed since the Paris Commune massacre of 1871. Comments from the highly placed in France include, “We have not seen such injuries in France since the war in Algeria,’ and “The instructions given to the police by the interior minister and President Macron represent systematic and violent repression.”
In the wake of the latest Yellow Vest protests gripping France the injury toll of the worst civil unrest in decades now resembles Civil War. Yet despite pleas from victims, Emmanuel Macron is tightening the screws on the distressed French peoples.
“This is not normal. We are in France, one of the oldest and best democracies in the world,” says Fiorina Jacob Lignier, who lost her eye at a demonstration in Paris on December 8. “We usually condemn other countries where this occurs, that this is happening here is unbelievable.”
Lignier, a 20-year-old philosophy student, travelled from the northern city of Amiens to march on the Champs-Elysee to protest against fuel taxes with her boyfriend, Jacob Maxime.
Her boyfriend told non-European media that they were walking with a column of peaceful demonstrators, when a group of radicals began to vandalise a shop front more than 50 yards away.
The police began shooting Flash Balls and throwing grenades in all directions, during which the couple spent two hours penned in between a line of gendarmes and a wall, with no chance to flee.
Fiorina Lignier said the last thing she remembers was the cries of cops clearing the way for firemen, then a gas grenade hit her on the head, and she was on the ground. When she woke up, her nose was broken, her face swollen from fractures, and she couldn’t see through her left eye. Over the next 16 days, Lignier underwent two surgeries, and is still waiting for two more.
“My eye still hurts. During the next surgery, they will remove it. It’s hard to get up to feel all this, I can’t go to lectures, I can’t read, and moving my eyeball is excruciating,” said Fiorina. “I do not recognize my country. These are not the values I was taught at school.”
For most demonstrations anywhere in the West, Lignier’s story would have made her a poster girl for law enforcement excesses. Among the Gilets Jaunes, her case is just one of many. The sheer scale of concentrated peacetime violence since November is hard to comprehend.
