    More than 400 people were injured as the riot police charged us and gassed us multiple times.
    Glad that you are not hurt.

    I was quite in the middle of it all to be fair - I got charged at multiple times by the Gendarmerie and I had to run in order to avoid being trampled down and literally beaten, because that's what happened.

    99% of people were protesting peacefully but some instigators (which I have seen, they were close to me in fact) started throwing various objects, including rocks, at the Gendarmerie. This suddenly turned into a tear gas fest with entire cans & drums of irritant agent being sprayed all over the Victoriei Plaza. Children, elderly, mothers... everyone was gassed, some square in the face. That gas is horrendous - chokes you and water makes it actually worse so you need either milk or Maalox (a chemical agent). The tear gas was indiscriminately thrown around.

    At the end of the day, at around 11:00 PM, the Gendermes got orders - clear the plaza. What followed was literally clashes, fights and some burned barricades and people were protesting at 4 AM.

    65.000 protested again last night.
    Ja mata, TosaInu. You will forever be remembered.

    A good breakdown of what's going on - people are still very angry.
