It is comparatively rare for a globalist body to speak up in defence of the people but the UN has managed just that by demanding that incidents where the French police have seemingly used “excessive force” be investigated.
Michelle Bachelet, the UN High Commissioner For Human Rights, said in her annual address to the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva:
“The ‘Gilets Jaunes’ (Yellow Vests) have been protesting what they see as exclusion from economic rights and participation in public affairs.
“We encourage the government to continue dialogue – including follow-up to the national discussions which are currently underway – and urge full investigation of all reported cases of excessive use of force”.
Her comments come as the Yellow Vest protests continue in France but scenes of shocking police brutality regularly go viral on social media such as Twitter with the latest example coming from last weekends protests, the pepper spraying of a man in a wheelchair.
The IGPN, the body that investigates police abuses, has launched more than 100 investigations into the conduct of officers during the protests.
