(en) ait russia: The 65th Act of the Yellow Vests Movement [machine translation]

Date Fri, 14 Feb 2020 08:04:56 +0200

On February 8, the demonstration of "yellow vests" organized by the movement as part of the "65th Act" of protest turned into real street battles with the police. The demonstration in Bordeaux was not authorized by the authorities. The police arrested 29 people, accusing them of throwing objects in the custody of the capitalist order, damage to city property, setting fire to containers with garbage, criminal gatherings and hiding people. At least 9 police officers and an unknown number of demonstrators were injured (2 demonstrators had to be taken away by ambulance). ---- Showcases and state property were also affected. On social networks, videos circulate where you can see scenes of police brutality and cruelty. The march in Bordeaux was a record for the number of participants for many weeks. Protesters gathered at the Exchange Square at 14.00. According to official figures, there were about 800-1000 of them (including 200-300 "risky" ones) - in fact, as usual, several times more. The drums rattled, screams and whistles were heard, firecrackers thundered. The beginning was like a big carnival ... Then the demonstrators moved along the embankments, in the direction of the Burgundy Gate. There they were already waiting for reinforced police squads. A helicopter patrolled over the terrain; stood at the manufacture of water cannons ... From the very beginning, the police provoked the demonstrators using tear gas and flashballs to stop the protesters,

In Paris, activists of the "yellow vests" gathered, on a call that was distributed on social networks, around noon at Place Royal, near the Council of State, from where they intended to move past the Matignon Palace, Senate and National Assembly to the Champs Elysees, despite the ban. They were blocked by large police forces and were eventually forced to disperse. 140 people were warned, 32 activists were detained (https://www.bfmtv.com/societe/manifestation-interdite-a-paris-140-verbalisations-et-32-interpellations-selon-la-prefecture-de-police-1854686.html) /. Police used tear gas and batons against one of the demonstrators. On Vendome Square, where the "vests" were about to stage a surprise rally, at about 15.30 the forces of the motor police were stationed.

Two other manifestations of "yellow vests" in the capital were allowed: one convoy moved at noon from the Saint-Cloud gate towards Marshal Juin Square (near Monceau Park in the 8th arrondissement), the other at the same time set off from Clichy Square to Saint-Pierre Square (near the Sacre Coeur church in Montmartre) (https://francais.rt.com/france/71138-acte-65-gilets-jaunes-entendent-braver-interdiction-manifester-visent-elysee)

The thousands of yellow vests traditionally took place in Toulouse.

In Lyon, the "yellow vests" gathered at 14.00, and an hour later clashes broke out between the police and the demonstrators, who were trying to break into the Paul Baucus shopping center. Protesters were blocked by the forces of the protection of the capitalist order https: //www.lyoncapitale.fr/actualite/lyon-les-gilets-jaunes-tentent-de ... )

In Vic-Fezansac (Gers department), the "yellow vests" organized an interdepartmental meeting at 9.30 on Cheval Blanc Square. After a march through the city, protesters headed for Osh at noon (https://www.lyoncapitale.fr/actualite/lyon-les-gilets-jaunes-tentent-d-entrer-dans-les-halles-paul-bocuse/; https://www.ladepeche.fr/2020/02/08/des-gilets-jaunes-determines,8719064.php)

Demonstrations also took place in Chalon-sur-Saone (https://www.lejsl.com/edition-chalon-sur-saone/2020/02/09/pourquoi-et-comment-les-gilets-jaunes-restent-mobilises) and other cities of the country.
