French police showed solidarity with the "yellow vests" protesters

Summary of Disinformation

Two dozen policemen removed their helmets in front of “yellow vests” protesters in France, showing solidarity with them.

Disproof

According to French media, the gesture of policemen responded to a "negotiation" with the "yellow vest" protesters, it was not a sign of solidarity.

The case was reported by Bloomberg, which underlined that the information about the police supporting the Yellow Vests protesters was coming from Mr Alexander Langlois, representative of the Vigi police union. The union is representing less than 4% of the unions in France and as such, cannot speak for all of them.

Further debunking by AFP.
