https://factcheck.afp.com/life-after-losing-eye-french-protests https://www.theguardian.com/world/v...jaunes-protesters-mutilated-by-police-weapons So far 25 protesters in France have lost an eye, as a result of police firing rubber bullets into crowds. 5 protesters have lost their hands from flash grenades thrown by police. Most of these protesters are "yellow vest members", protesting over economic difficulties. Many complain they can barely afford to get by, with high costs of living and limited job opportunities. The protesters were behaving relatively peacefully, but the police had ordered the crowd to disperse. Some people who were walking by and who were not part of the protesters have also been injured.
