For the Gilets Jaune’s 23rd weekend of protests, the call went out for the Black Bloc, the violent ultras from the far right and left to cause as much disruption as possible - and they did. Once installed at the Place de la République, the police as usual locked down the square and a day of baton charges, incitement, tear gas and flash grenades ensued. And as usual, shops were vandalised, the police were disproportionate, multiple injuries followed.
