The Yellow Vests in their own words——”It’s not a demonstration, it’s an uprising!”

HELP ENLIGHTEN YOUR FELLOWS. BE SURE TO PASS THIS ON. SURVIVAL DEPENDS ON IT.

The people of France are simply fed up with the status quo prescribed by neoliberalism and its tentacles in every sector of society—media, politics, and certainly the economy.  Here they express their pent-up anger in cogent and impassioned words. It’s worth noting their circumstances apply now to most countries in the so-called developed world, not to mention the uber-exploited third world. The disease is global.

Significantly, these reports are being prepared by independent media units, call them “people’s medias”, only interested in reporting the truth as far as they can see it, and with no ties to the plutocratic media and similar institutions of opinion manipulation.

HELP US BUILD AN ALTERNATIVE MEDIA OUTLET: https://lemediapourtous.fr/participez/ Saturday, December 1st will forever be engraved in French history. The “Yellow Vests”, i.e. French people who see right through the left-right divide, rose up and took over the Arc de Triomphe and other iconic places. We have here a “yellow revolt” – a pacifistic movement, sure, but over which the police had little control. Vincent Lapierre and the Média Pour Tous team were at the heart of the action that day. Follow them to see what happened.

Revolutionary wisdom

Words from an Irish patriot—

 

“There are three kinds of violence. The first, the mother of all the others, is the institutional violence, the one that legalizes and perpetuates the dominations, the oppressions and the exploitations, the one that crushes and flattens millions of men in its silent and well oiled wheels. The second is revolutionary violence, which arises from the desire to abolish the first. The third is repressive violence, the object of which is to stifle the second by making itself the auxiliary and the accomplice of the first violence, the one that engenders all the others. There is no worse hypocrisy to call violence only the second, by pretending to forget the first, which gives birth to it, and the third which kills it. ”

Dom Helder Camara, Brazilian Archbishop and liberation theologian

  1. Yellow vest are available on line world wide. Order yours today. Nothing will change sitting here pecking on touch screens. Now in my ninth decade, time is short to leave a better world for my great grand babies.

  2. The middle class are nervous, and angry about the consequences of the politics and policies they choose. In the US, the austerity agenda remains popular, as long as it applies only to our poor. Capitalism is what it is. Corporations — our employers — are for-profit entities, not social service agencies. Minimize expenditures, maximize profits.
