(en) ait russia - "62nd act": "yellow vests" continue the struggle [machine translation]

Date Sat, 25 Jan 2020 10:35:46 +0200


Despite the betrayal of the trade union bosses, who are preparing to curtail the strike against the neoliberal pension reform, the "yellow vests" do not intend to give up. On January 18, they took to the streets of French cities for the 62nd time. In Paris, their performance grew into violent battles with the forces of the capitalist order, especially in the area of Lyons station in the evening, where a building house a few meters from the entrance was also set on fire. ---- Network users call what was happening on that day at the station "surreal", and unfolding in the streets - "wild." The numerous police and gendarmerie forces stationed in the city from the first afternoon, repeatedly used gas and water cannons. After 6 p.m., when the police special forces demanded that the demonstrators leave the station area, the protesters broke up into groups, dispersed along the surrounding streets and began to build barricades from burning garbage cans. Many cases of police terror have been reported. A video of the cruel detention of a man with a bloodied face who was knocked to the ground and a police officer stepped on his chest with a knee circulates in the networks. At the slightest attempt to move the unfortunate, blows fell ... A similar scene was shot by another demonstrator: a policeman grabs a man and throws him to the ground, and the "colleagues" accept the victim to be beaten ... By 20.00 the police reported the detention of 59 people. By 6 p.m., 33 people were placed under arrest (https://francais.rt.com/france/70479-violents-affrontements-scenes-chaos-dans-paris-acte-62-gilets-jaunes-haute-tension).

The French Interior Ministry said that about 55 thousand people participated in the marches throughout the country, including 9000 in Paris. As usual, real numbers are several times higher. The main clashes in the capital occurred on Republic Square. Protesters smashed benches and real estate, set fire to cars and containers. Police launched gas, stunning grenades and rubber bullets. Police prefecture reported the temporary detention of 200 people; even before the start of the demonstration, 20 thousand people were stopped and "checked"!

Demonstrators in Paris marched through the streets, chanting slogans against Macron, police and pension reform. "Too little sympathy in this under-France," "Macron, Philip are traitors to the people," "The street belongs to us," "Macron, we will come for you!" Could be read on the posters. "Revolution!" The youth chanted at Bastille Square ... Clashes with the police began shortly after noon. The police said they were trying to "disperse the bloc, which sought to stand at the head of the procession." The first skirmishes occurred near the East Station, then between the squares of the Bastille and the Republic. But the clashes escalated into full-blown battles at the end of the route, in front of Lyon Station (https://www.france24.com/fr/20200119-gilets-jaunes-59-interpellations-au-cours-d-une-nouvelle-manifestation;https://www.francetvinfo.fr/economie/transports/gilets-jaunes/direct-mobilisation-des-gilets-jaunes-a-paris-15-interpellations-indique-la-prefecture-de-police-a-la-mi-journee_3790363.html)

"I was constantly poisoned by gas. Suddenly, I still didn't understand why, psychologist Beatrice Buttier, activist of the Yellow Vests movement, who came from the Air Department, told France Press agency. "I'm a mother myself, and I don't want to leave such a world for my children." I need more money to deal with my patients in a psychiatric hospital. We are required to be cost-effective. "

"You need to stop Macron. He understands only power, and so here we will not back down, "said demonstrator Christophe Rampierre, a 62-year-old pensioner. "Behind the policies that this gentleman wants to implement are lives."

"We are choking on this government, which wants to bring us to our knees," explains Anni Mukam, a 58-year-old teacher. - Retirement - to touch him, there can be no question. We have been working our whole life to be able to reach a decent retirement, and this is exactly what he calls into question "(https://www.universmartphone.com/gilets-jaunes-des-milliers-de-manifestants-a-paris-et-37-interpellations-ce-samedi-ouest-france/)
