(en) ait russia: Anniversary of the Paris Commune and the 133rd act of the "yellow vests" [machine translation]

Date Mon, 7 Jun 2021 13:26:16 +0300

One of the themes of the 133rd weekly protest of the yellow vest movement in France on May 29 was the anniversary of the Paris Commune. 150 years ago, on May 28, 1871, the Versailles punishers seized the last barricade of the Communards, suppressing an attempt at a social revolution in blood. To commemorate the continuity between the revolutionary traditions of the past and the protests of the present, the "yellow vests" staged demonstrations in Paris and Montreuil. The movement's protests took place in other cities of the country as well. ---- In Paris, the march of the "yellow vests" began at 13:00 at the Picpus metro station in the 12th arrondissement and reached the Place de la République, where it connected with a joint action in memory of the commune, which was organized on the initiative of 89 public associations, groups and initiatives. By 15.30 the protesters arrived at the Père Lachaise cemetery, to the wall of the Communards.

Those gathered at the Pikpus metro raised posters and banners, among which one could see the following: "150 years of the Paris Commune 1871-2021", "Communards, we go to freedom." The demonstrators, as usual, were surrounded by gendarmes and their vans. To the beat of drums and chanting "We are here", "We are not tired", the demonstrators marched down the Rue Saint-Maur, where they handed out leaflets to passers-by and visitors to street cafes. At about 2:20 p.m. they joined the gathering in Republic Square. A huge crowd, dressed in red, moved towards Père Lachaise, where they honored the memory of the Commune (https://blogs.mediapart.fr/ceinna-coll/blog/300521/gj-acte133-paris-29mai-lesfedereslacommunevivante?userid=1e4fd445-3f36-499c-8b97-859d118db8a5 )

In continuation of the Parisian manifestation of the "yellow vests", environmentalists from Extinction Rebellion and the Libertarian Communist Union organized a popular festival in Montreuil on May 29 at the Place de la Fraternity from 6 pm to 9 pm. Music performers performed (Johnny Montreuil, Fanfare invisible, Tarace Boulba, etc.), prepared a barbecue, a bar was open, a historical scene was shown (Raspouteam). The next day, May 30, not far from the square, in the AERI hall on rue Étienne Marseille, educational and cultural events were held: lectures on the commune and today's conflicts and social protests ( https://faisonsvivrelacommune.org/celebrons-la-commune-a-montreuil-les-29-et-30-mai/ )

In Lyon, hundreds of protesters in yellow vests gathered for a regional demonstration at 2 pm in Place Bellecour. At 15.00 the motorcade moved along the Gayeton embankment towards the university. Slogans against the Macron regime were chanted.

"It is important to defend the public domain and public services (...) We are neither for Macron, nor for Le Pen, we are for the people," explained Eric, one of the organizers of the action, which was held under the motto "One year before the end of your world." "There is no more democracy for us," the audience said.

The demonstrators headed towards the Place Jean Mace. "We are here, even if Macron does not want it," sounded through a megaphone. Crossing the University Bridge, the "yellow vests" headed along the Claude Bernard embankment. At about 4 p.m. the audience quietly dispersed, ending the procession in the 7th arrondissement of Lyon (https://www.leprogres.fr/social/2021/05/29/pres-de-500-gilets-jaunes-manifestent-place-bellecour)

The demonstrations of the "yellow vests" took place in Charleville-Mezieres (after several months of absence) and other places.
