(en) ait russia: "Yellow Vests" came out on their 119th protest act [machine translation]

Date Sat, 27 Feb 2021 10:25:12 +0200

In many cities and towns of France, on February 20, despite the curtailment of freedom of assembly, traditional weekly protests were held in which activists of the "yellow vest" movement took part. In a number of places they were accompanied by new police repressions. ---- In Paris, demonstrators gathered in the La Défense business district and marched at 2.15 pm. The action received permission from the authorities. On the posters and banners one could read: "Freedom"; "You have no idea how difficult it is to tell the truth to the world, to people who do not understand that they are living in a lie. Edward Snowden"; "People-killing collapse"; "Legal Defense" ... The participants demanded the departure of Macron, protested against the transformation of vaccines into a source of profits and corruption. During the demonstration, stops were made at the headquarters of the energy concerns EDF and Total: the protesters protested against the projects for transferring energy to private hands. The demonstration ended at about 17.00.

Meanwhile, the capital's "yellow vests" took part in another action - against the rally of the ultra-right group "Identist Generation". Protesters gathered in the square "June 18, 1940) in Montparnasse. The forces of the capitalist order demanded that the anti-fascists disperse, stating that their counter-action was not authorized. 11 brigades of the CRS special forces were on the spot. The police began to grab people. Among the detainees was one of the prominent activists of the "yellow vests" Jerome Rodriguez. The fascists guarded by the police also attacked their opponents (https://blogs.mediapart.fr/ceinna-coll/blog/210221/gj-acte119-paris-20022021-liberte-lediablehabitealadefense)

Protests were held on Saturday in other cities of France. In Strasbourg, at the height of the curfew, various associations, including the yellow vests, called for round-the-clock demonstrations under the slogan "No to dictatorship!" At 11.30 a march started from Zvezda Park, and protests were planned for the night in the quarter where the European institutions are located. The demonstrators marched through the city, accompanied by large police forces. During the action, clashes with the forces of maintaining the capitalist order and the detention of protesters took place (https://actu.fr/grand-est/strasbourg_67482/covid-19-strasbourg-en-plein-couvre-feu-ils-appellent-a-manifester-24h-pour-dire-non-a-la-dictature_39648001.html; http://hanslucas.com/ nbilliaux / photo / 42882 )

In Carcassonne, the yellow vests held a solidarity action with health workers, criticizing the lack of funds for the development of medicine and health care. They gathered in the parking lot of the hospital center, holding a banner: "Free health care, no prescriptions" (https://www.ladepeche.fr/2021/02/21/les-gilets-jaunes-en-soutien-aux-soignants-9385667.php)
