Rioting Doctors and Nurses Now By Richard Miller
The hospitals were in semi-lockdown so that many medicos and nurses spent time posting dance videos to YouTube, and ridiculous ones at that. And now in France, the medics are rioting for more pay, as rioting is the thing to do today, and the French were into this long before it became trendy to burn everything down, with the blessings of corporate capitalism, elsewhere in the West:
“A march by French health workers calling for better pay and working conditions because of the Coronavirus crisis descended into street violence in Paris on Tuesday. Riot police used tear gas and baton charges as they fought with protesters by Les Invalides in the centre of the city on Tuesday afternoon. By 4pm there had been 16 arrests, and 'disturbances were ongoing,' said a spokesman for the Paris police prefecture. Thousands including doctors and nurses had taken to the streets to rally for a better deal from the government. 'It appears that the main march was infiltrated by radicals who wanted to take on the police,' said one of the protesters. 'They began throwing missiles at officers, who responded in a manner that was very heavy handed.' A car was turned over at one point, with demonstrators hiding behind it as they goaded the police. Hundreds of youths then made their way on to the large grass field in front of Les Invalides, where some of the worst fighting took place. There, police snatch squads could be seen rushing into the crowd to make arrests, as tear gas swirled everywhere. Fires were also started in waste bins.”
The good thing about the doctors and nurses marching, is that when they get shot, or “can’t breathe,” after consuming vast quantities of drugs, and having obese cops sit on their necks, they should be able to patch each other up, so that they are good to go the next segment of rioting. It makes perfect sense.
