Has anyone been watching the French protests and live EU protests? Today's were quite bad Alot of damage done. However as always the French protest or other EU nations protests are not mentioned on the news.
I wonder if it's because because people are like sheep if they showed the protests they will join in. We've had them in UK...but there mentioned or if mentioned very discretely...
Don't you think the news should mention the protests...I understand our left wing news is super biased but it's ridiculous
I mean someone lost their hand today.
The French are using private guards and EU police and the police are so violent...why's it not on the news ??

Only people I've seen cover are RT. Friends and family in America haven't heard of it. Friends and family in New Zealand and Australia havnt heard of it either. It's not on European news either.

(Warning some of those stories involve graphic images/video)

All on the front page of their respective news sites, today.

Interesting how you only know that "someone lost their hand today" BECAUSE IT WAS REPORTED BY THE MEDIA.

No in Spain nothing about this french protest but in my country it's normal this because the politicians don't want incite us to protest. Two weeks ago we had a protest by the cabbies and VTC and there was much manipulation of news. So can be the similar reason of the england media.

EDIT: In Spain news: A men lost a hand in a protest of yellow vests.

I've watched it every week. This is barely news and not all the facts are there. This has not been televised at all...maybe on 1st week. It's written quite biased and missing many facts. Also it doesn't mention the EU police being used constantly and them bringing in their weaponry and them randomly dragging innocent people away and the EU police beating the **** out of people...on camera. This was only reported because some one got badly hurt and they took a few building s and burnt a car and smashed sports cars up. Every week it's been on its not reported. This is the 1st time I've seen news in it

It wasn’t on Australian news....

I think geography might be the reason there.

Ive seen quite a lot of coverage of the french protest in the US. on RT and a little on the mainstream news outlets.
The French police are not brutal! Many have been injured because their tactics have NOT been brutal. Here the cops move in and start busting heads before it gets out of control.

I assume you are talking about the US rather than the U.K., U.K. police are sacred they might hurt the little darlings.

Just yesterday a journalist lost his hand to an explosive fired at him by the police. Several people have lost their eyes.

In fact the French is the only nation in Europe that allows the police to use explosive TNT grenades (GLI-F4) against civilians.

Using explosive grenades is not an indicator of police brutality. Probably a weapon of last resort. What i saw was a police force using incredible restraint even when the attention of the mob , it seemed, had turned to them.
When this all began thete was one night when i believe there were 16 police injured. That,s not a protest. That's intentional targeting of the police in. a ptotest over ,what i was told, higher wages or something about how money was being spent. Gimme a break. They should blow the dust off a few boxes of those grenades.
