COP21 kicks off with tear gas

"Respect existance or
Expect resistance"

You will get the official coverage by represetatives of the globalists and their media presstitutes which will tell you lies.

You will get coverage from the liberal media (resprsented by the Guardian and Demcoracy Now!) and the likes of 350.0g and AVAAZ that peddle half truths.

The truth of the matter, as always will be difficult to find.

We will endeavour to fill that gap.

Peaceful Paris climate gathering descends into clashes with police
Anti-capitalists take over climate protest to rail against ban on marches imposed after terror attacks on city

29 November, 2015

A day of celebration and hope in Paris disintegrated into rioting and clashes with police on Sunday, after anti-capitalists and anarchists hijacked a peaceful event organised by climate activists earlier in the day.

About 200 protesters, some wearing masks, fought with police on a street leading to la place de la République, which has become a gathering place for Parisians since the terror attacks on 13 November that killed 130 people. Witnesses said floral and other tributes were trampled in the melee.

About 100 protesters were arrested and the gathering was cleared by police using batons and teargas.

Earlier on Sunday, there had been a carnival atmosphere in the square before the climate summit due to begin on the city’s outskirts on Monday. Thousands of shoes, including a pair belonging to Pope Francis, had been symbolically laid in the square to represent a climate march that was cancelled by authorities after the terror attacks.

The environmental pressure group had organised a human chain that ran past the Bataclan, the concert venue where dozens of people died in the terror attacks. A gap was left in the human chain to represent the victims.

More than 10,000 pairs of shoes were left at place de la République, Paris, by people who were set to take part in the climate change protest

However, at lunchtime a group of anti-capitalist protesters began marching around the statue in the centre of the place de la République. At first they were outnumbered by those from the more peaceful climate groups. When two men began singing La Marseillaise, the French national anthem, they were shouted down by the crowd.

It is a song for war,” said Arora Medieu. “Two weeks ago people sang La Marseillaise to join the sadness the French people had. Today is nothing about what happened two weeks ago. We don’t have to sing for war but to be united for a big, important, beautiful cause.”

But almost immediately afterwards the fight began. About 200 anarchists, apparently led by the “black bloc” group, charged at police in a side street. The police responded with teargas and flash bangs.

It was, said protester, a demonstration against the “police state” that has cracked down on activism since the terror attacks.

The security state cannot live with manifestation [the French right to assembly],” she said. “The state of France is founded on the right to manifestation.”

The situation deteriorated quickly as police restricted access to the square and launched dozens of teargas missiles into the crowd.

Police were pelted with glass bottles, cans, sticks and a skateboard. At one point a series of large bangs made the crowd fall back in fear. It was a reminder of the psychological affect the terror attacks have left on this city, but once the crowd realised that the bangs were set off by police they surged back.

The votive candles that have piled up on the monument in the centre of Place de la Republiqué since the terror attacks were also hurled at police. Afterwards the street was littered with broken glass, candles and flowers.

A protester who was handing out eyedrops said people had the right to march for things they believe in, no matter the security situation.

It’s not just about climate change,” he said. “It’s about the current state in France. The streets belong to us.”

By the late afternoon the air in la place de la République was still acrid with the smoke from police canisters. About 250 protesters were kettled by police in one corner of the square, with no one allowed in or out.

Manifestation interdite à république, des éléments violents s'en prennent aux forces de l'ordre.

Crowds gathered in the French capital on Sunday to attend a global march for the climate, despite the ban on gatherings enforced by French authorities. When one of the groups charged a police cordon, tear gas was deployed to push them back.

"Huge amounts" of tear gas were fired at protesters near Place de la Republique in central Paris, according to witnesses’ reports on Twitter, with objects flying in the direction of security forces.

The march, which was set to take place in dozens of cities around the world, was restricted in the French capital falling under the ban on gatherings introduced after the November 13 terrorist attacks in Paris.
