We appear to have entered a new state of the Yellow Vest protests.
The punitive police brutality has led most of the OG Boomers to stay home or at least far away from Paris. Now, it appears that some much more aggressive characters of indeterminate agendas have taken the spotlight.
Unsurprisingly, the violence has escalated as a result.
Riot police and demonstrators have clashed in France amid the ongoing general strike by labor unions against proposed pension reforms. Dozens have been arrested in Paris alone as over a million people marched across the country.
Footage from Paris shows protesters hurling objects at police, and riot-geared officers charging in response.
Seeing is believing.

The Russians sent a wahmyn into the thick of it. Strange choice of reporters.
It looks more intense than anything going on right now in the Donbass.
Maybe Russia should send their volunteer forces to liberate Paris instead?
Huge crowds turned out on Thursday to protest against the proposal by President Emmanuel Macron’s government to reform the French pension system.
The CGT union said around 1.5 million people marched in support of the protest, while the interior ministry estimates spoke of 700,000. Either way, the protest easily dwarfed the weekly ‘Yellow Vests’ demonstrations that have been happening every Saturday for over a year now.
The Yellow Vests protests ended up being simply a droning background noise, with nothing ever really happening.
But maybe now something will happen?
