(en) ait-russia: 34th action of "Yellow vests": there will be no holidays [machine translation]

Date Fri, 12 Jul 2019 09:56:15 +0300

In France - the holiday season. But "Yellow vests" are still in office, although the authorities and the media are doing everything to shut up and ignore their struggle. But on July 6, the 34th protest rally led thousands of people to the streets and roads in places like Alonzier, Angers, Ancenis, Besancon, Beness, Bordeaux, Buchle, Villefranche, Doluse, Givors, Kombur, Le Touquet, Lille , Lyon, Marseille, Montpellier, Montelimar, Nancy, Nantes, Nice, Paris, Pau, Pont-a-Mousson, Puget-Ville, Remoulins, Rethel, Royan, Rouen, Toulouse, Frejus, Chignan. ---- In some places, street marches took place; in others, demonstrators occupied toll stations and passed cars for free. The most numerous were the processions in Nantes, Bordeaux, Toulouse and Paris. At the same time, protesters in the French capital noted calls to stop police violence, as well as to release Julian Assange. The demonstrators moved soon after noon from the Place de la Republique and reached Plaza Catalunya, near Montparnasse train station. The march was mostly calm, although this time it was not without police gas. "Gas was elected by the LREM party as the perfume of the year," said one of the banners (LREM - the party of President Macron). On others it was possible to read the requirements to allocate more funds for health and education.

In the center of Toulouse, demonstrators marched under the scorching sun for a banner demanding Macron's departure. "Support for the wounded, against repression," could be read on it. During the march, a stop was made at one of the Zara stores, where protesters chanted anti-capitalist slogans. Another stop was made at the courthouse; the protesters chanted; "Amnesty for" yellow vests "". Then they moved back to the city center, and, as usual, ran into the gas-firing police near the forbidden area of the Capitol. After a brief skirmish, the demonstrators dispersed. 2 people were detained by the police.

Are the "yellow vests" going for the holidays? "Of course, we are now smaller on the streets of Toulouse on Saturdays," explains Diana, who participated in all the marches, starting from the very first. "But this, first of all, to focus on other promotions, during the week ... Presence at circular road intersections, blockade of strategic points, support for teachers who oppose the law of Blanke, support for suffering ambulance doctors. Nevertheless, we keep our presence at demonstrations. This will happen throughout the summer, with increased mobilization with the advent of September. In fact, we will use this summer period in order to discuss the upcoming new actions ... The movement is not going to leave, it is being transformed, structured, restructured. Toulouse remains a bastion of "yellow vests." Today, in the heat, many do not wear their vests. We are even ready to sympathize with riot police in their uniforms, but when they poison us with gas, as they do every Saturday ... ", says Diana.

In Bordeaux, according to police, the demonstration was calm. In Nancy, the demonstrators also tried to avoid the forbidden center of the city; 1 person was detained for throwing items to the police.

In Lyon and Givory, the "yellow vests" are back at intersections and junctions. On Friday evening, activists took a roundabout in front of the hospital in Croix-Rus. On Saturday, the action resumed at this interchange and in the Croix-Rus market. The picketers collected signatures for a referendum against the privatization of the Paris airport. The picketing of the Saint-Sauveur junction in Isere was scheduled for the evening. In Givors, after a ban on picketing the junction at the entrance to the Givor 2 Valais shopping center, protesters moved to a roundabout between the Georges Levy embankment and the Normandie-Neman park.

Protests of "yellow vests" are held on other days of the week. For example, on July 1, it was reported that the protesters completely blocked the A75 highway in both directions, causing a 7-kilometer traffic jam. The action was carried out jointly by employees of the "Interdepartmental Directorate of Roads" in orange vests and "yellow vests" who came to support their struggle.
