This film examines the official version of the clashes that occurred on March 25th, 2023, in Sainte-Soline, France.
According to authorities, law enforcement simply retaliated against the violence of some protestors. However, it appears that the gendarmes may have mistakenly fired tear gas at the wrong procession of demonstrators, which was actually peaceful.
Journalists on the scene reported that these shots triggered the subsequent violence, resulting in 47 injuries among the gendarmes and 200 among the protestors, including 40 serious ones.
