The “Yellow Vest” protests in France are continuing. This is the 18th straight weekend of these protests so they’ve been going on for over four straight months now. This weekend’s protests were some of the craziest since last December. There was all sorts of chaos.
French yellow vest protesters set life-threatening fires, smashed up luxury stores in Paris and clashed with police Saturday in the 18th straight weekend of demonstrations against President Emmanuel Macron. Large plumes of smoke rose above the rioting on Paris’ landmark Champs-Elysees avenue, and a mother and her child were just barely saved from a building blaze.
Cobblestones flew in the air and smoke from fires set by protesters mingled with clouds of tear gas sprayed by police, as tensions continued for hours along the Champs-Elysees. By dusk, as the demonstrators had dispersed, the famed avenue was a blackened expanse.
The resurgent violence comes at a watershed moment for a movement, which had been fizzling in recent weeks, and at the end of a two-month-long national debate called by Macron that protesters say failed to answer their demands for economic justice.
Police appeared to be caught off guard by the speed and severity of Saturday’s unrest. French riot police tried to contain the demonstrators with repeated volleys of tear gas and water cannon, with limited success.
One arson fire targeted a bank near the Champs-Elysees on the ground floor of a seven-story residential building. A mother and her child had to be rescued just as the fire threatened to engulf their floor, Paris’ fire service told The Associated Press. Eleven people in the building, including two firefighters, sustained light injuries.
lol at them setting fire to a bank.
This renewed escalation in protests appears to be in response to Macron’s goofy town hall thing he did. The whole thing appeared to be staged to make people think he was listening to the concerns of the “Yellow Vest” movement. The thing is, nobody bought it because if they did, we would not have seen this resurgence in the protests.
Obviously, Macron has completely ignored the will of the people. He’s a puppet of Jewish bankers and his role is to artificially prop up the deranged Jew globalist system and the failing European Union project.
With elections for the European Parliament coming up, it is safe to assume that Macron is not going to do very well. That’s of course assuming he’s still in charge of France by the time they roll around. For all we know, his head might be stuck in a guillotine in the next few weeks.
