(en) ait russia: 44th act of "yellow vests" [machine translation]

Date Sat, 21 Sep 2019 09:13:18 +0300

The Yellow Vests Movement held a rally on September 14th throughout France as part of the 44th Protest Act. A central rally was held in Nantes, where thousands of people took to the streets and there were violent clashes with the police, with arrests, wounded and routs. Self-defense was able to prove itself with all determination. The response to tear gas was Molotov cocktails. ---- The forces of the capitalist order prepared in advance for the protests in rebellious Nantes. Armored vehicles were brought into the street; many highways were blocked. Police provocations began even before the demonstration. The police made several arrests and confiscated a large papier-mâché lobster and dozens of umbrellas. It is stated that the night before, 22 Molotov cocktails were found in one of the containers.

Carrying out actions in the city center was forbidden, and the police tried to prevent demonstrators from going there. Gathering in the western part of Nantes, the protesters at 14.00 moved to the center. "Justice for Steve: we will not forget, we will not forgive" - could be read on banners. "Everyone despises the police," "Police kill," the protesters chanted. Demonstrators expressed their solidarity with protest movements in other countries, including the Greek Exarchy. When approaching the center, battles with the police repeatedly broke out, in particular, at Commerce Square, where positions passed from hand to hand. Police used gas grenades and water cannons, protesters responded with Molotov cocktails. During the street battles, an electrical transformer, shop windows, benches were damaged ...

It was impossible to breathe in the city due to the abundance of tear gas. Even seasoned commentators noticed that they had never encountered so much gas. Police reported the arrest of 35 people. 2 police officers and 2 gendarmes were also injured.

In Paris, demonstrators surrounded by police calmly walked from the gates of Choisy to Grenelle Boulevard, near the Eiffel Tower. They chanted anti-government slogans, demanded the right to a referendum and expressed their intention to continue protests. "Work, consume and shut up," protesters shouted ironically, urging demonstrators to join them. Among the demonstrators there were many pensioners: the rally takes place at the height of the struggle against another neoliberal pension reform.

In addition to the action in Paris, the "yellow vests" held a demonstration at Orly Airport, protesting against the privatization of Paris airports. They handed out leaflets to passengers, urging them to sign an online petition against privatization. Demonstrators chanted: "Orly-Roissy has no price."

In Lyon, demonstrators gathered in the middle of the day on Bellecour Square, despite the ban of the prefecture, which tried to prevent the holding of rallies in 3 districts, including the city center. 9 people were detained.

In Toulouse, protesters marched along the main shopping and central streets, chanting "Toulouse, Toulouse, get up!"

Demonstrations were also held in Marseille, Montpellier, Bordeaux and other cities.
