As many people from all sides have noted, why are the armed forces even using those rubber pellet grenades? They've been consistently causing life changing injuries each time they've been used against the activists, along with the robust nature of the armed forces. The even robuster targetting of leaders has just upped the ante - I question why the authorities are just escalating the mood of unrest when the protester numbers were waning a few weeks back and it was turning into an uncoordinated damp squib.Tbf, if you pick up a live/thrown rubber pellet grenade and it explodes blowing off your fingers then you are culpable for your own injuries.
Although, not yet known if it is linked or not, the leader of their parliament had their house set on fire.
I'm not sure the remaining Yellow Vests really need an excuse anyway, they've been quite happy to be violent on others/security forces and inflict criminal damage on property.
Destruction of property is very much not on, as I'm sure everyone will agree.
