Gilets Jaunes under attack
If you really wish to see something horrific, go to twitter on Saturday and Sunday nights and watch the films being posted of police brutality in France against the Yellow Vests. It is not only the violence, but the method. What the French government is underestimating is the danger that state violence that does not succeed in its goal of intimidating its citizens, instead steels their resolve: At one of the weekly ‘act’ protests in Paris not far from La Place Sainte Madeline plain clothes police ended up behind a wall of Gilets Jaunes. As they tried to move away they ran into the back of Wilfried, a steelworker from a small town in Burgundy who has recently had a child with his wife of nine years.
