(en) ait russia: France: "yellow vests" came to the 98th "act" of protest [machine translation]

Date Sat, 3 Oct 2020 11:04:18 +0300

On September 26, activists of the movement "yellow vests" once again took to the streets, squares and roads of France. In Paris, the demonstration began from Porte Dorée at 13:50, passed through Place de la Nation and at 17:15 reached Place de Italia. Participants of the movement have been holding their performances since November 17, 2018. The space for his demonstrations in Paris is increasingly limited by the authorities, and this is a clear violation of freedom. "Yellow Vests" challenge Macron with his "brutalized" gang and police violence in front of the whole of France and the whole world; the "yellow" or other truth remains relevant, he cannot completely suppress it. And she must reach him under his hypocritical mask with an electric and forced smile, behind which he hides, calming himself with his power, strength,

Throughout his reign, this barely elected ruler has forced thousands of protesters to take to the streets, including the yellow vests, who will not leave him alone until 2022, and whom he himself pursues with the help of his police. But the "yellow vests" are the only ones who continue to take to the streets of Paris and other areas of France since November 17, 2018, every Saturday.

In addition to the traditional demands of the "yellow vests" - raising living standards, wages and pensions, canceling pension reform, increasing taxes on the rich, granting the right to organize civil referenda - there is growing resentment among activists against authoritarian and arbitrary restrictions on freedoms under the pretext of fighting the epidemic. Prohibitions on demonstrations, fines, repression, coercion to wear masks ... "Wearing masks is like wearing a prison on your own face. They want to wear it for the entire population."

Paris demonstrators, chanting slogans and playing drums, marched through the city, despite the provocative actions of the police and gendarmes around them, who tried to slow down and restrain their advance. After speeches and speeches at the gathering place, the participants moved through General Michel Bizot Avenue to the Place de la Nation, where they crossed paths with a group of protesters from the French overseas possessions who came to express their outrage at the plight that had developed in their territories. Then, along the Boulevard Diderot, past the Gare de Lyon and further, the demonstrators go to the Place des Italia. A stop was made at a shopping center where speeches were given denouncing capitalist consumption (https://blogs.mediapart.fr/ceinna-coll/blog/270920/gj-acte-84-sem98-paris-26092020-ne-peut-pas-nous-interdire-de-respirer).

On September 26, actions were held in other cities and towns. For example, in Strasbourg, activists from several departments and even from Germany walked through the city from Bordeaux to the quarter where the EU institutions are located, and then to the city center, along Robertso Avenue, Brant Square, Ile Embankment, Corbeau and Kleber Square, where they set up tents and held discussions with the population. The posters read: Layoffs Epidemic: The Only Vaccine Is Fight, The Only Salvation: Organize To Get Out Of Capitalism And Nation States. Everything Is Possible Together!

The Yellow Vests resumed widespread protests following the quarantine and summer lull on September 12, when demonstrations were held in Paris, Lyon, Toulouse, Lille, Nantes, Marseille, Nice, Strasbourg, Bordeaux, Nancy, Montpellier, Angers, Grenoble and Douai. On October 3, new demonstrations and road blockade actions are scheduled in dozens of locations throughout France (https://www.evous.fr/Blocages-routes-France-carte-des-rassemblements-hausse-prix-carburant-1192858.html)
