A nurse was arrested on Tuesday, June 16, on the sidelines of mobilization for “contempt and throwing projectiles at police,” a police source reported to Agence France-Presse (AFP) as several videos of his arrests circulated on Twitter.
In this video, we see a woman wearing a white blouse arrested unsurpassed by police when clashes broke out when the procession of 18,000 protesters arrived, according to figures from police headquarters, at the Esplanade des Invalides.
In some videos we hear the nurse claim her ventoline, a drug used by people with asthma.
A woman in a white blouse, pulled into her hair, during a arrest, is eventually evacuated with a bloody face during the demonstration at Invalides. She will repeatedly demand her Ventoline.
