Wounded in the throat at the LBD, Mickaël B. filed a complaint to understand the circumstances of his injuries that almost cost him his life.

He might never have testified. But Mickaël B., 34, wounded by a shot of LBD, is alive and testifies to BFMTV this Friday. "I was almost paralyzed arms, but I'm happy to be alive and to be back," he said after being wounded in the throat by the police during the demonstrations against the megabasins of Sainte-Soline (Deux-Sèvres). His injuries led him to spend several days in a coma and undergo brain surgery.

After several weeks of "difficult" hospitalization and having filed a complaint, Mickaël testifies that he no longer remembers the moment when he was seriously injured on March 25: "We followed people, and then after... I have no idea, I was knocked out. I don't know what happened and woke up two and a half weeks later. »

"I want to know what happened"

Now, the thirty-year-old wants to understand: "I filed a complaint, I want to know what really happened there because I have no idea. "

At the end of March, the mother of the injured had filed a complaint for "attempted murder", "obstruction of rescue" and "disclosure of secret files".

Originally from Loir-et-Cher, he was seriously injured in the trachea during clashes on March 25 between the police and activists opposed to an artificial water reservoir. Hospitalized in Poitiers, his prognosis had been engaged for a time before he came out of the coma on March 30.

In a statement, the collective Les Soulèvements de la Terre, co-organizer of the March 25 demonstration, welcomed "great and good news", saying it was "delighted" by this "encouraging" announcement.

The League of Human Rights (LDH) denounced "an immoderate and indiscriminate use of force" during the March 25 demonstration in Sainte-Soline, which attracted between 6,000 and 30,000 people. The clashes left 47 wounded on the side of gendarmes, according to the prosecutor's office, and 200, including 40 serious, on the side of demonstrators, according to the organizers.
