    Incidentally, YouTube see fit to issue the following warning beneath the video in post #158 ...


    ... wouldn't it be nice if they could do this for all media channels and warn us, for example, that the BBC is funded by the British government.

    'Act 47' will take place tomorrow, the 5th of October.

    Remember: police brutality against demonstrators in France = media blackout.

    Chinese police dealing with demonstrators in Hong Kong = full media coverage (including lectures re. democracy & totalitarianism etc.. etc..)

    I suspect that YouTube is now censoring the Yellow Vest protests.

    I'm currently looking into this.

    Hmm ... it's extremely difficult to find anything about the YV's in English.

    Their protests in Paris yesterday began at the HQ of France Télévisions where they denounced such things as the media blackout, biased reporting and fake news. A lot of of their demos have been centred around the government's main propaganda outlets (radio, TV & press) and this is the latest one to do so.

    Yesterday was 'Acte 49' and in 3 weeks' time they'll have been going for a whole year!

    Five days ago, the 2nd of January, French strikers set a new record for consecutive days on strike: 29. This beats the 28 days registered in 1968.


    No one is calling this a revolution, but it is.



    Since November the revolt against Macron and the French state has entered a higher, more intense phase. Along with the vast union strikes go freeway and rail closure, petrol shortages, the selected allocation of electricity supplies to poor areas; the denial of power to Amazon, the marches of the Gilet Jaune, the intensifying battles with the police, the involvement of more and more of the French citizenry and institutions, including, last week, the National Ballet; all of it is evidence of how the struggle to remove Macron is intensifying.

    After a year of weekend battles in every major French city and the official entry of the trade unions into the fight, big changes are in the wind and the yearlong power struggle in France is moving inexorably towards a climax.





    'Macron betrays the heritage of the resistance'.


    This poster is a good place to start if we want to understand these developments.

    It recalls the popular history of France. It does so to indict the usurper Macron. It is a calling out of Macron for not understanding, for not belonging and ultimately for being a traitor to the common history.

    The woman in this poster is clearly a WW2 resistance fighter. The photo was taken during the liberation; a period in which the resistance dispensed popular justice to collaborators and Vichy officials. It’s all there in the big print: ‘Macron betrays the heritage of the resistance’. This history held in common is the glue that binds France together as a people and a nation. This is the real France Profonde: more than simply a geographical location; it is a subjectivity, an almost unspoken sense of what it means to live in France and to be French.

    Perhaps the most crucial heritage of the resistance is the constitution of the 1947 French Fourth Republic. It is the Fourth Republic, a republic grounded in the popular action of resistance, which inaugurates state social security as a constitutional right. The social security safety net is a prize won by the French through their own actions of resistance.

    It is a product of their common history, of the entire notion of what being French means. This is the system Macron is attacking; one long targeted by neo-liberals. This much is well known. What is less understood is the role social security plays in the reality of French lives.

    The tax burden which funds the overall social net is heavy. As a result, even in the best of times French middle and working classes have little free cash This is tolerated precisely because each generation pays with their own taxes for previous generations and in turn receive their allocation when they retire, paid for by the following generation.

    This cycle of common social responsibility is the living social compact Macron seeks to destroy. In doing so he continues his recent policy of uniting all France against him. And it’s all there in the poster – French history condemns Macron.

    But something else has changed as well over the last two months, something just as ominous for the president.


    THE END OF THE FIFTH REPUBLIC?


    For the last twelve months all over France, the Gilets have been discussing a new constitution to replace the existing Fifth Republic model. In marches, in conventions, in the watch parties endemic on Facebook, on little stickers pasted on bins and walls and in doorways, they have raised this issue constantly till it fills bars and squares all over France. For today the French people are not just tired of rising diesel prices, or changes to the Notre Dame design or even, pension attacks. Most of all, they the French are tired of powerful presidents ordering and destroying their lives apparently at whim. Presidents who have overwhelming power, who don’t listen, who underine their own sense of France and of themselves.

    The Fifth Republic was inaugurated in a military coup by De Gaulle in 1958. The constitution he wrote sought to bypass the Left’s domination of the previous parliamentary assembly, the described ‘instability’, through the granting of enormous and unprecedented power to the president. When the president was De Gaulle or Mitterrand, both of whom extended the social security framework, this situation was tolerated.

    However the last three presidents, Sarkozy, Hollande and particularly Macron, have proudly used presidential powers to favour the rich and advance their Neoliberal agenda. Macron has done so without even the rhetoric of compromise; uttering constant televised declarations asserting that he’d never give in to street protest. All this has starkly exposed the democratic deficiencies in the entire constitutional structure. The French have seen the dictator inside the constitutional robe.

    The exclusive and vast power vested by the Fifth Republic in the president, also means that any struggle against him and his policies automatically becomes a struggle concerning democracy. By constitutionally rendering parliamentary opposition ineffective, the Fifth republic forces serious opposition onto the street. And it is there that this intensifying battle is increasingly being joined. The extremely limited roles played all year by Le Pen and Melenchon point to the same conclusion.

    It is the Gilet who have led the way and they have done so in the street. Not by being a twentieth century political ‘party’, but by being a self-announced movement, one open to all people and all strands of thought. From the first the Gilet have been an inclusive movement of action, toleration, invention, local control, energy and consistency. They have invited all sides and all opinions. Through endless debating and sheer persistence they have prodded the population into a unity around the common goal of overturning Macron. They have propelled the people of France into a more active role, a more critical perspective and ultimately, into the creation of a new French political world.

    As for Macron, his current situation is best summed up in a Gala magazine headline: ‘Emmanuel and Brigitte Macron worried about their safety: how they will change their habits?’ Macron has been largely absent from Paris for the past year. While he still struts the world stage, a recent headline in the Atlantic “Macron speaks but is anyone listening?’ puts this into context. He’s unable to travel at home without an enormous police presence and he ceased any sort of meet-the-people event months ago. When he is seen, it’s on television, at formal conferences, meeting other heads of state, EU events and so on. Whatever image the media presents of him, in truth, events are currently bypassing Macron. Increasingly he appears like a man on a grand castle of sand, watching it shrink as the tide flaps his feet.


    Moreover, his staggering political ineptitude remains the best recruiting tool the Gilet Jaune have. Great times can also breed great idiots. The raising of pension reform, an issue impacting everyone, including the police and the military, is a political master stroke. More so if you can do it at a time when your only firm defenders, the police, are demoralised by the weekly pitched battles they’ve fought all year, in every major French city and particularly over the summer in Toulouse. Why at this point, raise the question of pensions?

    Why render problematic the personal pension of everyone in France including the police? When you depend upon them so heavily? When people are already outside calling for your head! Such is the man’s political savvy.


    WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT?


    The extreme possibility that Macron, his despised wife and his hated police minister will end up hanging from a lamp-post, cannot be discounted. The violence and brutality administered by the police and their para-militaries over the last 14 months has cut deep and left wounds, physical and mental. The cops are hated.

    What seems less likely is an immediate civil war. Macron is utterly beholden to the police and military. He has barely any popular support. Polls show him at twenty to thirty percent, a figure which is almost certainly soft and conditional. Open support for Macron outside the media, is almost impossible to find.


    On the other hand given the struggle is still personified in Macron himself, his removal in some form, remains the most likely outcome. Certainly Macron will at some stage be thrown to the wolves. Probably, in the immediate term to be replaced by someone equally as banal.

    From the perspective of the Gilet they remain currently the most radical, most long-standing and most advanced of all the current anti-neoliberal, anti-state struggles worldwide. In Chile, Ecuador, Spain, Greece, Iraq, Hong Kong, rioters know who they are against – the government and neo-liberal state. The Gilet have the same enemy, but only they exhibit a unique sense of their own identity, one currently only rivalled by the Catalans. They also possess wide popular support and a developed understanding of what they want.

    These traits have been present since their inception; in everything they’ve done. Exemplified in the defining symbol of the physical yellow vest itself; a symbol of unity and inclusion. Everyone can be a Gilet, everyone who owns a compulsory yellow vest already is; everyone is included and debate local action and invention have raged.

    What the Gilets have done is create an arena for the creation of new political meanings and ultimately outcomes. They have defined the struggle. And they have done so from their very first march. Their notions of diversity and tolerance has allowed all France to participate in the thinking and political action. It has unleashed grumbles and melancholy and returned politics to the street. And it has galvanised solid majority sympathy and prolonged support. All of which is an act of liberation.

    This struggle now is for the meaning of the state, the meaning of France itself. The Gilet movement has the moral authority; it has the people’s support. It has a proposed constitution endorsed by a majority of the population, certainly more than voted for Macron.

    Currently all French dissent flows into the France of the Gilet. What they will do with it once Macron is gone, well… your guess is as good as mine. Whatever they do is up to them, all the same one thing is now clear, where they go, France will follow.

    Do French Lives Matter?





    Where was the outrage when police were maiming protesters in France?





    The police killing of George Floyd has sparked waves of protests not only in the United States but also in the form of solidarity demos in Europe. In the UK, thousands defied the lockdown to march in London, while hundreds also protested in Manchester and Cardiff. The killing of Floyd, the subsequent
    protests and riots and the police brutality meted out against demonstrators have all received copious attention in the UK from the media, celebrities, politicians and more.



    What is striking in this sudden outpouring of protest is how much it contrasts with the total indifference to the police violence which was, not long ago, on display week in, week out practically on our doorstep. I’m talking, of course, about the yellow-vest protests in France. The gilets jaunes revolt was the most significant and sustained period of unrest in France since 1968. But the protests themselves garnered disproportionately little media attention. And the many acts of police violence against the protesters raised barely any comment or condemnation whatsoever. The perception of a media blackout was so strong that fake-news stories spread online saying that the British government had actually banned our press from covering the gilets jaunes.



    The scale of police violence was astonishing and stomach-churning. Between November 2018 and June 2019, according to figures compiled by Médiapart, 860 protesters were injured by the police – 315 suffered head injuries; 24 lost the use of an eye; and five had hands torn off. In December 2018, an elderly woman who had no involvement in the protests was killed when police threw a grenade into her flat.



    Among these victims are not only protesters but also journalists and medics. Police have been filmed beating elderly and disabled people, as well as using tear gas, water cannons and rubber bullets against peaceful protesters. The main source of injuries was ‘Flashball’ rubber bullets – a non-lethal weapon that has been banned in every EU country except France. More than 13,000 of these bullets were fired in the first three months of the protests. Another extreme weapon used by police was the GLI-F4 – a teargas grenade which contains explosives that maimed numerous protesters. The grenade was eventually banned by the French government in early 2020.



    Things got so bad that the UN called for a ‘full investigation’ into the police’s ‘excessive use of force’. Similarly, the Council of Europe’s human-rights commissioner called for an end to the use of Flashballs against protesters. Amnesty International denounced the ‘extremely heavy-handed’ policing deployed against peaceful protesters. Eventually, even the French government acknowledged it had a problem with police violence.




    Much of the UK coverage emphasised the violence caused by a minority. They repeated the French government’s smears that anyone donning a yellow vest was likely a racist, homophobe or an anti-Semite – and was probably being manipulated by Russia. Britain’s paper of record, The Times, claimed that the French police had been ‘overpowered’ and ‘powerless’ in the face of thegilets jaunes mob’ – despite the fact that on the weekend concerned, there was a police officer on duty for every protester.



    Police brutality ought to be deplored wherever it takes place and whoever it affects. While the rioting in the US is tacitly condoned and understood as a righteous expression of anger, the yellow vests’ populist uprising was looked at with horror. The sad truth is that even when the gilets jaunes were being maimed and brutalized, they did not elicit much sympathy among the political class on these UK shores.






    Do French Lives Matter? - spiked02 VI 2020.


    When the question is put to the public, it’s the left, their mouthpiece MSM and the establishment who answer NO toDo French Lives Matter?”



    "The waves of protests not only in the United States but also in the form of solidarity demos in Europe and in the UK" are orchestrated because it’s a Presidential election year and ‘Creepy Jo Biden’ needs some sort of a miracle to have any chance of beating President Trump.

    "The gilets jaunes revolt was the most significant and sustained period of unrest in France since 1968." The establishment has initiated full scare terror of the Wuhan virus to slow down the revolts. (This government propaganda can be similar to the levels of WWI misinformation.)There is a newer disease. But, is it really more lethal than the Asian flu during 1956, the Hong Kong flu or H2N2 outbreaks? The "bug" seemed to have halted these revolts "dead in the tracks" with the social distancing and lining-up citizens all over the globe. Has the gilets jaunes resumed protests or just not covered in the US?

    Macron calls on eu to back belarusians

    CRITICS CRY FOUL AS MACRON CALLS ON EU TO BACK BELARUSIANS BUT NOT YELLOW VESTS AT HOME




    Rising fuel prices originally triggered France’s Yellow Vests economic movement




    French President called on the EU to throw its weight behind Belarusians demanding that their liberties be respected – but the online community was quick to remind him of fellow Frenchmen rallying for the same cause at home.



    Emmanuel Macron tweeted his support for the growing anti-government sentiment in Belarus, writing on Sunday that Brussels must continue “to mobilize alongside the hundreds of thousands of Belarusians who demonstrate peacefully for the respect of their rights, their freedom and their sovereignty.”



    The demonstrations that caught Macron’s eye have been building since the controversial presidential vote in Belarus, that saw the sitting President Alexander Lukashenko being re-elected for a sixth term. The outcome was rejected by the opposition, who insisted that the vote was rigged. Notably, the French President’s appeal didn’t receive an overly positive response in the Francophone realm of Twitter. He took quite a bit of heat online for prioritizing grievances of Belarusians over those of the French.



    “Haven’t you noticed that in France people also march for the respect of their rights?” one
    asked.



    Another used the President’s language, reminding that “the Yellow Vests demonstrated, and still demonstrate peacefully today for the same demands, before you had them knocked down and clubbed.”



    Initially motivated by rising fuel prices and unaffordable cost of living, the Yellow Vests evolved into a nationwide grassroots movement for economic and social justice. As it grew, political demands were added, with ‘Macron demission!’ (Macron resign!) becoming one of the slogans frequently heard at the Yellow Vests demonstrations.


    Netizens wondered if Brussels will respond to the French rallies in the same manner Macron is calling for now.



    “Has the European Union mobilized alongside the hundreds of thousands of Yellow Vests in France who peacefully demonstrated for the respect of their rights, their freedom and their sovereignty?” some asked.



    People also pounded Macron’s page with examples of popular unrest in Europe and elsewhere which have attracted little or no attention from the EU. One Twitter user
    asked the president to express the same support for the people of Cote d’Ivoire, while another reminded him that in Catalonia, the EU “didn’t care about paramilitary violence against the civilian population.”



    Macron’s tweet appears to be completely in line with the positions of the EU’s leadership. This Friday, the bloc dismissed Lukashenko’s victory and promised sanctions against Belarusian officials. Lukashenko himself brushed aside all calls to review the results of the election, repeatedly arguing that the wave of protests was orchestrated from abroad.



    We saw European democracy in action with the immediate arrest of Catalonian politicians who wanted independence.



    foreign support for regime changes only serve the establishment and 1%.




    Double-standards and double-speak. No to Catalonia, but yes to dismantling the former Yugoslavia?



    The little Napoleon with mother complex is also the key meddler in Ukraine and we all know how well that went.



    RT - AUGUST 17, 2020
    Macron wants EU to back Belarusians standing up for ‘rights & freedom’. But what about the Yellow Vests at home? Twitter users ask



    Highlighting wrong doing of Satrap ABSOLUTE (5 or 8 year) DICTATORS means little in the EUssr where ALL NEWS IS CENSORED.

    The law has to be changed to hold politicians accountable for the consequences of the decisions they make.

    ‘Liberty! Liberty!’ – 160,000 March Against Vaccine Passes in France


    ‘Liberty! Liberty!’ – 160,000 March Against Vaccine Passes in France





    PARIS (AP) – Some 160,000 people, including far-right activists and members of France’s yellow vest movement, protested Saturday across the country against a bill requiring everyone to have a special virus pass to enter restaurants and mandating COVID-19 vaccinations for all health care workers.


    Similar protests were held in neighbouring Italy.



    Police fired water cannons and tear gas on rowdy protesters in Paris, although most gatherings were orderly.



    Legislators in France’s Senate were debating the virus bill Saturday after the lower house of parliament approved it on Friday, as virus infections are spiking and hospitalizations are rising. The French government wants to speed up vaccinations to protect vulnerable people and hospitals, and avoid any new lockdown.





    Protestors gather in front of the prefecture during a demonstration against the compulsory vaccination for certain workers and the mandatory use of the health pass called by the French government in Annecy, eastern France, on July 24, 2021. – Since July 21, people wanting to go to in most public spaces in France have to show a proof of Covid-19 vaccination or a negative test, as the country braces for a feared spike in cases from the highly transmissible Covid-19 Delta variant.



    Most French adults are fully vaccinated and multiple polls indicate a majority of French people support the new measures. But not everyone.


    Protesters chanting “Liberty! Liberty!” gathered at Bastille plaza and marched through eastern Paris in one of several demonstrations Saturday around France. Thousands also joined a gathering across the Seine River from the Eiffel Tower organized by a former top official in Marine Le Pen’s anti-immigration party.


    While most protesters were calm, tensions erupted on the margins of the Bastille march. Riot police sprayed tear gas on marchers after someone threw a chair at an officer. Other projectiles were also thrown. Later some protesters moved to the Arc de Triomphe and police used water cannon to disperse them.


    Marchers included far-right politicians and activists as well as others angry at President Emmanuel Macron. They were upset over a French “health pass” that is now required to enter museums, movie theatres and tourist sites. The bill under debate would expand the pass requirement to all restaurants and bars in France and some other venues.


    To get the pass, people need to be fully vaccinated, have a recent negative test or have proof they recently recovered from the virus.


    Céline Augen, a secretary at a doctor’s office, is prepared to lose her job under the new measure because she doesn’t want to get vaccinated.


    Ayoub Bouglia, an engineer, said, “We need to wait a little bit before the French people can decide … I think a part of France is always going to be unwilling and that blackmail and threats won’t work.”


    In Italy, thousands of protesters gathered in Rome, Milan, Verona and other cities Saturday, protesting the government’s decision to require a “Green Pass” to access indoor dining, local fairs, stadiums, cinemas and other gathering places.


    In the northern city of Verona, several thousand people marched down the main shopping street, chanting “No Green Pass!” and “Freedom!” They included families with young children, medical doctors who said they are risking their jobs not to get vaccinated and people who likened the Green Pass decision to decisions by dictatorships. The demonstrations proceeded peacefully and dissipated into summer evening crowds. Despite the vocal opposition, Italy’s new requirement, effective Aug. 3, has led to a boom in vaccine appointments in Italy, where so far nearly half of the eligible population is fully vaccinated.


    This has nothing to do with public health it has everything to do with control and in restricting travel.
    Since both Gates and Soros have bought a UK testing company expect this farce to go on and on.
    Violent protests are inevitable as people realise they are being herded into taking poisons into their bodies.



    There is a general sense of frustration in France and especially in Italy as the anti-COVID-19 measures by the Macron and Draghi governments are not working, and the answer by the governments is to still keep doing the same thing over and over. The frustration is especially acute in Italy, where the public has been locked down while nothing is being done about the illegals that continue to enter the country in large numbers, and who are frequently infected with COVID-19.
    People are upset, and angry. It will be a long, hot August. And the authorities in France, Italy, and elsewhere have little answer to the public except more of the same, even though it is obviously not working.


    Keep up the political fight. America will likely be joining soon if the technocrats carry out their threats to shutdown/remask/mandate vaccines leading up to, and during, the coming flu season.


    "Illegals Tha Continue To Enter The Country In Large Numbers,And Who Are Frequently Infected W/ Covid-19"?Does this sound FAMILIAR?????


    They carry other 3rd World diseases from which they are not vaccinated (with real vaccines). Decades ago when I was undergoing very strong chemotherapy my counts were stubbornly down. I was never told to do anything special such as wear a mask. The only thing my doc put the kibosh on was for me to take a cross-country trip. He was concerned that if I fell or suffered some minor trauma that I might bleed internally (low, low platelets). In addition to the risk of internal bleeding he said, "I can protect you from everything except TB." If you look up TB you'll see what a killer it is in the 3rd World and how many people are actual carriers of it, as well as the death rate. Yet, the illegals are rarely tested for it. When my mother was getting her papers to become a US citizen she had to submit to a health exam and a syphilis blood test. Her test result came back Stage 4 positive for syphilis! Surprise, surprise! It turned out they got her test mixed up with some other unfortunate soul.






    ‘Liberty! Liberty!’ – 160,000 March Against Vaccine Passes in France 26 VII 2021.


    This scam is just the beginning of the Globalist elite's RESET for the NWO, as stated on the Georgia Guidestones or are they Tombstones?

    Paris protests against Covid ID turn violent as France resists measure



    Paris protests against Covid ID turn violent as France resists measure

    Three officers were injured as mass protests in Paris against a Covid-19 "health pass" spilled over into fierce clashes between the demonstrators and police, as thousands took to the streets of France for a third weekend in a row. Tensions have been running high on the streets of Paris on Saturday, as scores of people rallied against the government’s plan to demand a special Covid-19 health certificate to let people engage in everyday activities.


    At some points, the situation apparently spiraled out of control as the law enforcement officers were seen using water cannons and tear gas against the angry crowds pelting the police with what appears to be stones and bottles. A video published on the social media also showed what appears to be an explosion of a small incendiary device on one of the streets, where the police engaged the protesters. Another video showed a brief but intense scuffle between the police and the protesters that apparently prompted one of the officers to try his boxing skills in a standoff with the crowd. The officers were actively using tear gas cylinders and pepper spray to disperse the crowds and drive them away.


    A group of retreating police officers also saw some of their colleagues falling over a barricade made of burning dust bins. The incident ended up with one officer briefly catching fire, with his colleagues rushing to douse the flames. Le Parisien reported that at least three police officers were injured in Saturday’s clashes. It is unclear how many protesters were injured and detained during the demonstrations. Footage that surfaced on the social media showed police putting handcuffs on several people lying on the ground.


    Paris was not the only protest venue on Saturday as similar events were held in some 150 cities across France, according to the media reports. Most demonstrations were peaceful.
    The massive protests were sparked by the decision by President Emmanuel Macron's government to further tighten Covid-19 regulations. Starting from August 9, French citizens would need a special health pass to get into cafes and even to use certain means of public transport. The 'green pass' document proves that a person is either fully vaccinated, has recovered from Covid-19 or has recently been tested negative for the disease.




    In France the MSM call this civil unrest or trouble caused by citizens, in Syria they would call this an uprising, go figure, the elites need to be brought down big time, confiscate ALL their wealth and throw them out in the streets to beg like so many.



    France is being used to test society's resistance to COVID ID by the cabals in the West. If they succeed in France, they will implement the project throughout Europe. French must fight against being injected with a biological weapon to weaken the immune system then organ failures will follow.The vax is a HOAX. It does not protect against infection or transmission. Whoever takes it will need booster shots every few weeks until the person dies. The vaccinated's health will gradually deteriorate then the person will live in misery and pain. The goal is population reduction and the cabals want to make money doing it! The protests must spread continent-wide to be effective and they must be massive.




    President Pudding Brain needs to take note before he tries something like this in the USA.



    Macron may fold, and might be quite pleased to do so, but there is a replacement already waiting in the wings with an identical agenda. Presidents may come and go, but the agenda remains the same.
