(en) ait russia: "Yellow vests" for the 46th time held a protest [machine translation]

Date Fri, 4 Oct 2019 09:06:03 +0300

During the "46th act of" yellow vest "protests in France on September 28, performances all over the country again took place. In Toulouse and Montpellier, which are considered the bastions of the movement, fights with the police took place. In the first of these cities, thousands of demonstrators took to the streets for the banner "Tired of surviving - we want to live!" ---- During the march, the police repeatedly used tear gas and a water cannon. Protesters threw capitalist order guards over everything that came to hand, chanted curses at them. The procession, which began at 2 p.m., peacefully passed from Wilson Square, along Alsace-Lorraine Street, Escirolu, Saint-Roma Street, to the Capitol. The demonstration was not permitted by the authorities, mobilizing many gendarmes and police officers. The situation began to worsen around the central square of the Capitol. The first volleys of gas were fired at Capitol Square, where a demonstration for the rights of older people was also taking place at that time; police intervention caused panic among its members. "Yellow vests" wrote on the walls of the town hall: "Modenk, knock knock!" (Modenk is the mayor of the city) and "Our desires are riots." Chanting "Anti-capitalists!" - one of the slogans that have already become a ritual in Toulouse, - the demonstrators made a stop at McDonald's, where they lit a tent. From there they moved on, and in an attempt to disperse their police again launched gas and jets from a water cannon. Representatives of the League for Human Rights, which monitor the actions of the police, said that one of its activists was injured by police. At least 5 people were detained.

In Montpellier, 4 policemen were injured during demonstrations and clashes, and 9 demonstrators were detained. The "yellow vests" acted very decisively, offensively and, as the police complained, even "aggressively". They bombarded police with metal poles torn from the ground, chairs from bars and restaurants. In turn, human rights activists sharply criticized police violence and abuse.

In Paris, "yellow vests" wedged into the techno parade. They refused to take off their vests, contrary to the requirements of the organizers. Demonstrators chanted: "Strike, blockade, Macron's resignation" and "Street belongs to everyone! In Bordeaux, a demonstration of" yellow vests "took place after a feminist march for the right to abortion. There were no clashes with the police. Before the demonstration began, the protesters poured paint into a fountain in the square Stock exchanges painted water yellow. In Nice, this time selected as the center for interregional demonstration, yellow vests passed from Place Massena along the central streets of the city. Genevieve Lege, an elderly woman injured by police during a demonstration on March 23 and who became a symbol of the struggle in Nice, said: "I will go out to the end, if necessary, until my death." In Lyon, demonstrators were banned from holding rallies in many parts of the city. Marches of "yellow vests" were held in other cities of the country.

Actions on the blockade of traffic on the roads do not stop. The "yellow vests" of the Côte d'Armor department carried out a "snail" operation: 70 cars created a 6-kilometer traffic jam near Saint-Brieuc, slowing down traffic on the RN12 highway between Rennes and Brest. The action lasted about an hour. Prior to this, the "yellow vests" of the region participated in a regional meeting in Forbash, in the Langyo shopping area. In Avignon, from September 27 to 29, the "yellow vests" held a "civic university", at which activists exchanged wrestling experiences and plans for the future.
