'Yellow vest" social protests: a new era of facial injuries induced by rubber bullet from non-lethal hand-held weapons

Abstract

Since November, 2018, France has been facing violent contestation with the national so-called yellow vests protests, resulting in about 4000 casualties.1 We managed 21 patients who presented with face and eye injuries caused by rubber bullets from non-lethal hand-held weapons (NLHHWs). Because of the steady increase in the overall number and violence of protests worldwide,2 one might expect a rise in injuries caused by NLHHWs.
