Date Wed, 30 Oct 2019 09:27:00 +0200


The 50th weekly protests of the yellow vest movement were held in solidarity with the anti-capitalist struggle of Latin American workers and preparations for large-scale performances in France. Thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of a dozen large cities. The central march this time was held in Saint-Etienne. ---- In Saint-Etienne, protesters marched around Bellevue, La Riviere and Center-Dé. Among them were not only locals, but also activists who came from Lyon, Clermont-Ferrand, Haute-Loire and even from Ardeche. Large police forces were mobilized against them. CRS Special Forces blocked the paths to the Loire Prefecture and General Foix Street leading to Piazza Naroda. Having gathered on this square at 14.00, the demonstrators did not go in the center, but headed to Belleville. A police helicopter circled over the protesters. On Robespierre Street, on the way to the RN88 highway, where the demonstrators intended to block traffic, the march came across gendarmes in helmets and batons. The first clashes erupted, the police began firing grenades with gas. The demonstrators retreated and began to zigzag along the La Riviere area. Ahead of the guards of the capitalist order, they went onto the freeway in front of the tunnel and at 16.00 for a quarter of an hour blocked traffic on both sides with metal cans. The riot police who arrived in time with the help of tear gas still managed to push them back. Accompanied by the gendarmes on the heels, the demonstrators returned to Center-Dô and dispersed through the streets of the residential area behind the shopping center. Several times they again tried to break into the center of the city, but they were driven away by jets of gas. The smaller crowd eventually returned to where the demonstration began - on People's Square. At about 6 p.m. the campaign ended. Police reported detentions ( Accompanied by the gendarmes on the heels, the demonstrators returned to Center-Dô and dispersed through the streets of the residential area behind the shopping center.

"Since public services should be free, access to them should be the same," read the banner installed in the parking lot of Simone Weil Hospital in Obonne-Montmorency. It's not normal when you pay to be able to visit the patient, protesters said. Visitors were allowed free of charge. Cars passing by, greeted by the demonstrators. The drivers smiled happily. "Thank you so much for what you are doing, and good luck," said the female driver. To hide from surveillance cameras, protesters opened umbrellas ( http://www.leparisien.fr/val-d-oise-95/gilets-jaunes-a-eaubonne-operation-parking-gratuit-a-l-hopital-27-10-2019-8181360.php)
