It’s not easy though, there is basically a complete news black out going on in this country about it.
One more nail in the coffin of the Main Stream Media.
I had to go to a European news source to get even a little bit of accurate news.
As the French ‘yellow vest’ movement continued on Saturday, with 50,000 protesters marching through Paris and across France according to the French government, president Emmanuel Macron has denounced the “extreme violence” of some clashes that erupted at the Paris march.
These new protests follow Macron’s government announcing on Friday that it would harden its stance against the ‘yellow vests’.
For the past two months, the ‘yellow vests’ or ‘gilets jaunes’ have been blocking roads, occupying highway toll-booths and organising weekly, sometimes violent, marches in Paris. Driving the movement is the feeling among French workers and lower-middle class that they cannot make ends meet, and anger at Macron’s reforms seen as favouring the rich.
‘Yellow vest’ protesters gathered in Paris on Saturday afternoon, chanting the French national anthem ‘La Marseillaise’ and waving anti-Macron banners. They were about 4,000, according to the police.
They peacefully marched from the Champs-Elysees boulevard through central Paris, gathering at the stock exchange to call for Emmanuel Macron’s resignation. Shops and restaurants remained open, although the Galeries Lafayette department store briefly shut its doors.
The protests turned violent as the march entered the city centre. Protesters threw bottles and rocks at the police, who responded with tear gas. Police officers were beaten up during clashes on the Léopold-Sédar-Senghor bridge near the National Assembly. One was injured, AFP reported. Police cars were attacked on Rue de Rivoli, by the Louvre museum. Cars and barricades were set ablaze on the boulevard Saint-Germain, a famed and wealthy Parisian area.
I don’t have the source because I closed the tab hours ago but I read one local guy say that Macron is all but done from a link over on 8Chan.
It isn’t just Paris either. This Yellow Vest protest has spread across the globe but France especially is on the verge of a civil war it seems. That same guy listed six major French cities that all have major protests going every Saturday and they are getting bigger each week.
The story quoted above confirms what he said,
Thousands more gathered in other French cities. In Bordeaux in the southwest, they were 4,600 according to local authorities. They were 2,000 in Rouen and more than 1,000 in Lille, in the north, and 2,000 in Nantes, in the west. Marches were also held in Rennes, in the west, and Lyon and Marseille in the southeast. In Lyon, ‘yellow vests’ blocked the A7 motorway.
Note that those crowd estimates are from “official” sources.
You could easily double those numbers I’m thinking.
These people are starting to get seriously pissed off too.
They say history repeats its self.
A few hundred years ago a bunch of aristocrats lost their heads under similar circumstances.
This could get very interesting here shortly.
