The procession of around sixty people had just started when an incident occurred this Wednesday morning in the town of Palais in Belle-Ile-en-Mer (Morbihan) during the demonstration against the reform of retreats. A little before 10:30 a.m., a van that found itself in the middle of the mobilization forced its way before knocking down a demonstrator in her thirties, reports West France.
Injured, the victim was quickly taken care of by the emergency services before being transported to the hospital center of the island. The gendarmes, who were on the spot at the time of the accident, immediately chased the driver and arrested him. At the call of the inter-union and Nupes, a new demonstration in support of the injured person is planned for Thursday morning at the same place.
