(en) Czech, AFED - France: "Nobody likes the police" - The 49th Yellow Vest protest was marked by the interconnection of struggles.

Date Mon, 28 Oct 2019 08:39:59 +0200

The 49th Yellow Vest protest took place under the slogan of solidarity with firefighters who demonstrated on 15 October in Paris. The police intervened hard and seriously injured one of them. The protests are gradually bringing together different professions, and this time people of all ages from the regions have come to Paris. One of the slogans was the commonly shared statement: "No one likes the police!" The cops were deployed in massive numbers, using tear gas again and arresting them. So, in fact, the only change in almost a year's ongoing protests is purely technical: because the police are confiscating the yellow vest protesters, the protesters have decided not to use them in such numbers.
There were also protests in many other cities. This time in Toulouse, a march took place demonstrating in places where firefighters reside and where there are many clinics and hospitals (rescuers strike). The main motto was the unification of struggles: no one should be subjected to such scandalous violence. What to imagine under state violence was verified by the participants of the protest on the spot when there were clashes with the guardians of order. The same happened in Lyon, where cops attacked people who wanted to get to the city center. In Rouen, two cops and one demonstrator were injured in the clashes. There were three times as many demonstrators in Valenciennes than the heavy-armored and gendarmes, and there were also clashes. There was no incident on Saturday's protest in Bordeaux or Lille.

"Nothing has changed in that year of protests, fuel is even more expensive, and the gap between rich and poor is widening," one of the protestors said. Therefore, in addition to demonstrations, roads were blocked where leaflets were handed out and chanted: "We are here, though Macron does not like it."
