Following the horrific injuries of 73-year old Yellow Vest protester, French President Emmanuel Macron told a newspaper he hoped the woman, gains “wisdom” over the incident.

The French president came under fire for failing to condemn police brutality on a pensioner as the Yellow Vest protests reached their 19th week on Saturday.

The protester, Genevieve Legay, who is an Anti-globalization activist, remains in hospital after police aggressively charged on people who were defying a protest ban Saturday.

Legay was witnessed by an Associated Press reporter waving a rainbow flag marked “Peace" before she was pushed to the pavement as blood spilled from her head.

But Macron suggested Legay didn’t behave “responsibly,” according to an interview published in Nice Matin.

The French President added that “fragile” people shouldn’t attend “places that are defined as prohibited.”

He concluded by adding: “I wish her a speedy recovery, and perhaps a form of wisdom.”

At least 2,000 people have been injured in Yellow Vest protest violence.

.General Bruno Leray's announcement signaled how desperate the government is to keep law and order in the city.

General Leray told Franceinfo Radio:

"If their life or that of the people they defend is threatened, they can go up to opening fire."

The French president also deployed the military and army tanks to tackle Yellow Vest protesters.

Disturbing images surfaced of the army and riot police surrounding the giant tanks used by Mr. Macron in an attempt to overpower the protests against his government in French cities.

A French journalist uploaded a picture of the tanks to Twitter with the caption:

“Protesters are pushed back to the Canal du Midi.”
