Welcome to this thread! I will use it to try and list as much police brutality videos and photographs from the events happening in France, in an effort of information and archiving. A lot has happened before this thread, and it would be impossible for me to include everything, so I will just add what I see from now on.

POLICE REPRESSION AGAINST PARTIERS NEAR REDON 18-19 JUNE 2021

 

During the night from the 18th to the 19th of june...

The partiers started arriving in the field during the night, and began trying to settle and install their musical equipment. The police instantly became shooting tear gas grenades at the people, which were coming in numbers from the villages around. During six hours, the police continuously shot hundreds of tear gas grenades, and a few explosive ones, along with shooting with a rubber bullet launcher. Tenths of partiers were harmed during the night, and at least one person lost a hand to a GM2L grenade.

Spoiler

CONTEXT: It was pitch black and the partiers were constantly being shot at with tear gas grenades, which they instinctively threw back to avoid suffocation. Hundreds of tear gas grenades were shot this day, but also a few explosive grenades (GM2L), which are undistinguishable in the dark. The victim picked it up during the action, not realizing it was an explosive grenade.

 

During the day of the 19th...

After around six hours of conflict, the police finally retreated, and the partiers were victorious. They started installing the sound systems and dancing as the day began to rise, all was going fine... until the police came back in large numbers during the day, using tear gas grenades once again, but also illegally destroying the equipments.

YEARLY MUSIC FESTIVAL IN FRANCE 21 JUNE 2021

Every year in France, on the 21th of june, people celebrate the music festival. It's a national event where we celebrate music massively. This year, however, the virus-related restrictions made the festival take a weird, repressive turn.

 

In Paris, the young tried to party

Young people running away from the police...

And after moving multiple times in the city, they were heavily gassed:

 

In Nantes, they tried to pay a tribute to Steve

Steve is a young man that died two years ago, at the same date, during the same event. The police arrived near the docks of Nantes, where a small free party was happening for the music festival, and proceeded to violently attack and gas the people. Around 10 partiers fell into the Loire because they couldn't see anything. Everyone managed to go back to the surface, except for Steve. His body was found three weeks later in the area.

At the beginning of the meetup in tribute to Steve, it was going fine. They used slogans such as "we won't forget, we won't forgive!".

And then, a few moments afterwards...

The initial plan was to have a march towards the place of Steve's death, for the parents to go deposit some flowers there. The march did reach the point before the tensions, but at first, the family were denied placing down the flowers, it's only thanks to the pressure of the people that they were allowed to go.

 

Meanwhile, in the bourgeois world of the Elysée

Meanwhile, the president was having his own party, without the police, and they even invited... Justin Bieber!
