From Paris a CN Live! Documentary: ‘A Day With the Yellow Vests’

CN Live! spent a day a fortnight ago with the Yellow Vests protest movement in France. Here is our documentary by Cathy Vogan.

Watch the replay right here on Consortium News of Cathy Vogan’s special report on the protest movement that for more than a year has shaken France and become a worldwide symbol of resistance to the ravages of economic neoliberalism.

    Sadly, there will never be a mass yellow vest movement in USA because:
    1. fear of paramilitary police state
    2. short attention span
    3. selfish individualism
    4. no civic maturity
    5. profound stupidity

    Keep in minde, at the height of occupy in NYC, only a few hundred at most showed up. Out of a city of several million, it was less than 0.1% of the population.

    The Yellow Vests movement has initially been a protest but today it seems it has lost its STRENGTH!

    Bernie should concentrate e on universal health care and a more progressive taxing system and don’t try to offer something for everybody.

    I have voted Democratic all my life I recently voted ONLY because of Bernie Biden is an insult to humanity Does anyone remember that Ralph Naderand Winona Laduke were on the ballot in all 50 states and the Democratic Party blocked their participation in the debates because you know Ralph would have asked ALL the taboo questions and would have captured the hearts of anyone within hearing range So Bernie is Ralph2.0

      Vive la France and Vive ConsortiumNews.
      Joining the YellowVest’s demonstration tells us more about the YellowVests and Macron than the written article, as good and necessary as some of those articles are.
      Being a New Zealander the Suzy Dawson article on CN (few months ago) is shamefully (re NZ) relevant: The CIA in NZ sent 7 NZ spies to France to infiltrate the main political groups during their last election, them report back to, not NZ authorities, but the CIA in NZ: Probably is relevant to Macron being elected.
      I feel it is impossible for me ever to be able to say Vive la New Zealand.
      CN: Please publish this version. ‘NZ spies’ is important.

    Go France !!! The citizenry still out there protesting government policies during this dangerous pandemic. Unkike in the US – the land of the casi-libre.

    Mean while back in the US our genius president is demonstrating why a competent and intelligent person would be preferable in the land’s highest office.

    But don’t worry, the Dementacrats are pushing their own version of genius, running a man whose wife shouldn’t allow her husband the chance. It’s all pretend.

    Looks like Bernie’s impossible ideals – the very ideas that if in place right now, would be exactly what this nation needs for the common good are still off the table.

    They want us to vote blue again.

      John, Trump is a typical smack-talking New York and I have no reason to like him personally. But as an administrator, the POTUS has bitch-slapped the New World Order and the Banking Cartels that have been promoting war and death for over a century to fatten their coffers and control the world. It’s your choice you can be sucked into the LEFT vs. RIGHT illusion or be an American, “free and independent” (JFK). I choose independence and independent thinking every time. THERE IS NO LEFT vs. RIGHT, ONLY TYRANNY vs. FREEDOM!

      For readers who can read French, this


      is an excellent summary of the work rules (hours, vacation, etc.) that Macron’s government is now trying to impose on everyone: allowing employers to set by themselves to set all the rules. Back to the brutality of the nineteenth century. We are going to fight like hell againt this!

      Not only are we expected to vote blue, it is even more aggressive with the chant “Vote Blue No Matter Who.”

      Actually, it’s fairly clever. Just wait and see who is chosen as his running-mate …. She-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named!
      Then she does most of the campaigning, and if they win, and he survives until then, about two days after being sworn in, Biden is declared unfit for the strains of office, and She steps in…
