(en) ait russia: The 87th act of the Yellow Vests Movement [machine translation]

Date Thu, 16 Jul 2020 08:19:16 +0300

The yellow vest movement in France has been hit hard by government bans on the pretext of fighting the epidemic, and the coming summer with its holidays is not the best time to resume the rallies. Moreover, the authorities here and there continue to prohibit the holding of demonstrations and rallies, all under the same narrow-minded pretext of "sanitary security." However, the longest-running social protest movement in modern France is not going to stop the fight. On July 11, it brought activist groups to the new, 87th "protest". ---- The performance of the "yellow vests" was again prohibited this time by the local authorities, for example, in Toulouse (the "southern capital" of the movement) or in Valence, where the movement's supporters intended to gather at the roundabout - at the place of its origin in late 2018 (https://www.gj-magazine.com/gj/valence-la-manifestation-des-gilets-jaunes-prevues-samedi-interdite-par-decision-prefectorale/). In Paris, the "yellow vests" were, as usual, forbidden to hold actions in the city center, near government offices. However, the 87th (74th for the French capital) act took place in the south of the city.

Demonstrators gathered at 13.00 on Plaza Catalunya in the 14th arrondissement. The theme of the manifestation was announced on a large blue banner: "Freedom, equality, fraternity", and the emphasis was placed on the relationship of the first and second. Accompanied by drums and surrounded by many gendarmes (whose presence, as usual, was supposed to terrorize the protesters), the "yellow vests" passed along Vercingetorix Street, split in two on Vouillet Street, headed further down Convent Street and turned onto Emil Zola Avenue, where the procession at 16.40 it was completed at the Grenelle bridge. On the way, the participants chanted: "We are here, we are here", "Everyone despises the police", "Strikes: 2nd wave in September!", "You are tired, but we are not. The street belongs to us", "Work, consume and shut up fall, Paris, get up

Small rallies of yellow vests took place in other cities and towns, such as in Bordeaux ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZwdZJRG7vs ), in La Tour de Pins (at the roundabout Lidl de Saint-Jacques-de-Soudin (https://www.ledauphine.com/societe/2020/07/11/isere-les-gilets-jaunes-de-la-tour-du-pin-organisent-une-retraite-aux-flambeaux-le-14-juillet ) or at the roundabout in Saint-Sauveur (https://www.estrepublicain.fr/social/2020/07/11/les-gilets-jaunes-de-retour-mais-sans-blocages)

The following performances of the participants of the movement are scheduled for July 14.

During the summer, the "yellow vests" are going to renew the campaign for free admission of cars to toll roads and picket roads at the roundabouts and restore ties with the population. Despite desertion from the ranks and declining numbers, they are aware of their important symbolic significance and do not intend to give up!
