(en) ait russia: "Yellow vests" still go out [machine translation]

Date Thu, 14 Nov 2019 08:12:10 +0200

A few days before the first anniversary of the yellow vest movement, thousands of supporters again, once again, took to the streets of French cities on November 9, including Montpellier, Toulouse, Bordeaux, Strasbourg, etc. The central rally was held in Montpellier, a city that hosted the 4th "assembly assembly" of the movement a week ago. ---- The demonstration in Monepellier was held in a tense atmosphere. Demonstrators marched around the city surrounded by police, while CRS special forces cordons blocked access to the station, Polygon shopping center, and the prefecture. Clashes repeatedly broke out between the demonstrators and the police using tear gas. In response, masked and hood protesters threw firecrackers and smoke bombs. From a mobile sound system, there was music from Star Wars. Authorities report 15 detentions. 5 police officers and 1 demonstrator were slightly injured.

"The social problems remain the same as at the beginning of the movement of the yellow vests," the 50-year-old sociologist Jean explained to reporters. "Too much inequality, too many stressful professional situations that are difficult for life ..."

A regional demonstration was held in Strasbourg. Participants chanted "Revolution!" and raised the banner "To live, not to survive - we will not retreat." Some of the protesters armed themselves with firecrackers and smoke bombs. During the clashes, the police seized 5 people.

In Toulouse, protesters gathered in the city center. Initially, they traveled through narrow streets, avoiding skirmishes with the police, but after two hours, about a hundred activists headed straight for the CRS cordon. Battles went on for several tens of minutes, then the protesters scattered in gas clubs.

In Bordeaux, "yellow vests" were joined by Kurdish demonstrators protesting against Turkish intervention. Some of the Kurds also donned yellow vests.

According to an opinion poll conducted by Odox at the end of October, 43% of French people believe that the yellow vest movement has not died and will sooner or later regain its former power. 59% of the French rated his role positively.
