French police have attracted some really bad publicity, after knocking down an elderly lady during a rally in Marseille – an event being held to honor another 80-year-old woman who died after being hit by a police grenade. Over 1,000 people gathered in the southern city of Marseille on Saturday to remember Zineb Redouane. A resident of the city and of Algerian origins, she died in hospital last December at the age of 80 – a day after she was hit in the face by a tear gas grenade, launched by riot police during a turbulent Yellow Vests rally. The demonstrators carried a large banner, reading “Tribute to Zineb. Batman kills, let’s be Joker!” and chanted “We are all children of Zineb!” They marched past the apartment in Marseille’s old city where Redouane used to live.
