Some Words About the Movement of the #YellowVests

While the medias and the revolutionaries around the world look at what is happening in France, a lot of information is lost and it is not always easy to follow the facts because of the number of videos and comments which are following each other on social networks. Here is a recap of events for over a month, by a French person who has collected the information of all mainstream medias and radical left medias, to make a synthesis.

Message from #YellowVests #Commercy: The time of the communes still rings out!

Commercy’s Yellow Vests offer a political solution to the movement: autonomous local committees, direct democracy, sovereign general assembly, delegates with a precise mandate revocable at any time, rotating responsibilities.

“Paris is not an actor, but a battlefield”: Interview with Eric Hazan

Eric Hazan interviewed about the Gilets Jaunes protests. We want to stress that we disagree with Eric Hazan’s view, saying about the far right: “Because even if the enemies of my enemies are not really friends, they are so at least a little bit.” We also disagree with his view of the police. In our view the police is a problem as an institution. Not just a few units like the BAC. Still its an interesting interview, with one more view about the events on the French territory. We are glad that antifascists on the French territory also don’t share that view and kick the fascists out of the Gilets Jaunes demonstrations again and again.
