French Yellow Vest leader placed in coma after being hit in the face by rubber bullet
By Emma R.   31 January 2019

Anti-government protesters in France believe Yellow Vest leader Jérôme Rodrigues was deliberately targeted and called for “a mass uprising” against President Macron’s government following the wounding.

Philippe de Veule, Rodrigues’s lawyer, confirmed his client has been “placed in an artificial coma” and was likely to be “handicapped for life”.
Rodrigues was in Place de la Bastille, one of the French capital’s most famous squares, during rioting on Saturday afternoon when he was hit in the right eye.

Dramatic video that he filmed himself showed the moment he was struck in the face, moments after protesters were seen fleeing across the square.

There have not been many reports of serious injuries with the protesters but there have been a few.

I have decided to officially and formally not apologize. I'm not sorry at all, even slightly.

    Indeed, I especially want to convey my absence of remorse to anyone who was offended by what I said. If you are the sort of person who gets twisted into knots when someone articulates a point of view that differs from your own, then you are exactly the sort of person who should never receive an apology for a differing point of view — if I were offering one, which, again, I'm not.
