(en) ait russia - 124th Yellow Vest Protest Act [machine translation]

Date Tue, 6 Apr 2021 17:56:42 +0300

On March 27, France hosted the next, 124th act of protest of the yellow vests social movement. Despite another tightening of bans - all under the same pretext of a "pandemic" - the actions took place in Paris and various cities of the country, including at the traditional places of protest - road roundabouts. The performance was held under the motto "Living Together for Freedom". The protesters demanded social and tax justice, "direct democracy" and an end to repression. ---- In Paris, protesters marched from 12.30 to 14.40 from the Palais des Sports in Bercy and towards the Place d'Italie to Danfer Rochero. As usual, the demonstrators moved around the city surrounded by massive police and genjarmerie forces. No collisions were noted. Participants chanted "We are here, we are here!", "Who owns the street? We!", "To arms!", "Paris, get up, get up", "No sanitary dictatorship!"

At 15.00, a stand-up demonstration against the violation of civil liberties by the government was organized on the Châtelet square (https://blogs.mediapart.fr/ceinna-coll/blog/280321/gj-acte124-paris-27032021-lesvivantsensemblepourlaliberte )

Actions of "yellow vests" were held in other cities, in particular, in Brest, Saint-Briek, Saint-André-de-Kubzak (in northern Bordeaux), Lisieux, Amiens (against the law on "security" - together with students and trade unions private sector workers), etc.

On March 27, demonstrations were organized across France for the right to housing - the European Day of Action. The demonstrations took place in Paris, Nantes (where the gendarmes used tear gas) and other cities. The "yellow vests" and anarchists also took part in them.

On March 28, the yellow vests joined the pro-climate demonstrations against climate change policies. Performances were also held throughout the country.

Meanwhile, the government's crackdown on protesters continues unabated. In the Dordogne department, 5 members of the movement were sentenced to 14 months in prison on charges of "arson" (https://www.lepoint.fr/justice/jusqu-a-14-mois-de-prison-ferme-pour-des-gilets-jaunes-incendiaires-23-03-2021-2419108_2386.php# ). 8 "yellow vests" received suspended sentences for their participation in the destruction of the Arc de Triomphe in Paris in 2018 ( https://www.lexpress.fr/actualites/1/societe/gilets-jaunes-des-peines-symboliques-pour-le-saccage-de-l-arc-de-triomphe_2147589.html)

The "yellow vests" of Lamballe, Guingamp and Signac, who, at the call of their comrades from Montreuil, occupied the roundabouts commemorating the 150th anniversary of the proclamation of the Paris Commune, were attacked by the state forces for the protection of the capitalist "order" and repression. The pretext was non-compliance with the state sanitary dictatorship.

In Lamballe, where the audience read a text commemorating the anniversary of the Commune, gendarmes armed with firearms brutally attacked the protesters and fined them. Nevertheless, they passed by the gendarmerie and city hall, chanting "We are here!"

In Guingamp, the "yellow vests" gathered at the Kernilien roundabout and read a text about the Commune. The police arrived and demanded that they disperse, threatening with fines of 1,500 euros.

In Senjaka, gendarmes attacked the crowd, accusing them of violating the ban on gathering in an amount of more than 6 people. Fines imposed (https://www.infolibertaire.net/repression-des-gilets-jaunes-qui-se-revendiquent-de-lheritage-de-la-commune-et-reoccupent-les-ronds-points/)
