Update:Gilet Jaunes/Yellow Vest Protests Continue


Gallier2 left us some updates- check the links. 
Including exposing Kim Kardashian's leading from behind role in the protests ;)
Argh. Just lost a half an hour comment that I was writing about todays gilet jaune gathering. So I will make it short then as I don't have the mood to start anew.
So today was act 6 of the gilet jaune. Contrary to Castaners statement that there were only 800 gj in Paris, there was again a big gathering. The GJ were smarter this time as they made the police think they would go to Versailles (very posh town south west of Paris). The authorities had amassed there with all their riot equipments to discover that noone wanted to play with them there :-)
The GJ gatherd in Montmartre (around the Sacré-Cœur) instead and started their march towards the posher part of the capital. At the end of the day they massively arrived at Champs-Elysées were the police was overwhelmed.

Some videos of today:

I've heard on the radio that there were also yellow vest gatherings in Canada (Ottawa, Calgary and Vancouver specifically)? Is that true?

  1. "I've heard on the radio that there were also yellow vest gatherings in Canada (Ottawa, Calgary and Vancouver specifically)? Is that true?"

    yes, that is correct!

And only for the fun of it.
I heard that Kim Kardashian was also behind the yellow vests :-)

It's interesting to observe how quiet the US and UN are on the state sponsored crack down against France's protestors- I'm sensing that big old double standard at play.

    1. Hi Rick; These seem to be grass roots.
      Widely ignored and or derided by the media is on good indicator for sure.
      And as Gallier2 points out- still widespread

      "In the rest of France also strong presence everywhere (also here were I live, there are several roundabouts with gilet jaunes, with improvised sheds and fire places."

      Very suggestive the protest has widespread support

    2. The interesting thing about the movement is the that what the gj ask for is not more money, but a better democratic representation. The biggest request is RIC, referendum d'initiative citoyenne (citizen referendum).
      This said, the establishment is in panic and they don't know how to control the movement. I've just seen 10 minutes ago that calls for act 7 have been emitted.
      The media start to play the antisemitism card with ridiculous stories (a holocaust survivor was agressed by yellow vest making quenelle gestures in the metro last saturday at 11pm and as incredible as it sounds, a journalist from the "20 minutes" paper was there to witness this horror scene that reminds us of the darkest hours of history. Yeah, you get it, they are rolling out the big canons of lacrymial holocaust story telling. Nobody with an IQ higher than room temperature or not part of the problem buy that bullshit anymore and that's quit enjoyable.

    He was beaten by the police, the truncheon found was put by police forces, according to some sources

    *Eric Drouet is the speaker of #GiletsJaunes

  5. https://southfront.org/estonia-criminalizes-negative-attitude-towards-state/
    On December 25, Estonia’s Parliament accepted a law criminalizing creation and support of a negative attitude towards the state, Interfax reported. The law will be employed towards both private individuals and legal bodies.

    Issues related to actions of foreign intelligence services and persons acting in favor of foreign intelligence services are described in a separate law. So, the December 25 decision is a move towards opression of any kind of critical points of view in Estonia. The law is another sign of the collapsing democratical institutions and the creation of a “police state” in Estonia.

  6. Hi everybody,

    update from act VII on saturday 29th december.

    Contrary to media proclamation, big yellow vest crowds around France and Paris. Some new developments that will not be presented in media, massive crowds went in front of the office buildings of BFM-TV (everybody calls them BouFfe Merde TV, shit eater TV) and France Television (state TV).
    An innovation in Paris, motorized protestations, i.e. massive yellow vest on scooters and motorcycles, changing the dynamic of the power strugle with police
    https://www.facebook.com/Pagefaitdivers/videos/227393091489643/?t=68
    As can be seen in this video, it is the police that is boxed in by these motorized yv.
    As can be seen in this video from Vincent Lapierre (with english subtitles) of act 6, the tactic of the police is to box demonstrators in small streets to wear them out.

    Today, from what I could see on RT and other channels, there were heavy clashes in province towns like Rouen, Amiens and Lille. I've seen that there are also clashe in Metz and smaller towns.
    Politically, the movement is very focused on the RIC (citizen referendum) and all other consideration are of lesser importance. Benalla is also again in the focus, as it was found out that this asshole was with Macron in Tchad last week. Panamza has also an article on the Israeli link of Benalla. http://www.panamza.com/281218-benalla-israel-aman/

      saw some reports on the protests today

      thanks and I'll post the updates first thing tomorrow morning!

    2. As you please. The Benalla affair bubbles up because he used a diplomatic passport to go to Tchad before the state visit and he had sworn that he hadn't any when he was interrogated last July. So he commited perjury. Let's see if it will be swept under the rug as always or if something comes out of it.
