More defiance define Gilets Jaunes “Acte 10” (Videos)

The video below is an eloquent document about the clashes of Gilets Jaunes with the police. The anger of the demonstrators is obvious, there’s pent-up frustration with a regime they perceive as deaf and dumb to their interests or the institutions of genuine democracy (sound familiar?). The video —a collage of various clashes and possibly different dates—focuses on a great deal of violence, but Gilets Jaunes “acts” (as they call them) are mostly peaceful. Do not—despite these images—yield to the notion the Gilets are a bunch of irresponsible “casseurs” (guys just out to break senselessly everything in sight). Their cause is just. But notice as well that these are people who are not easily intimidated. There’s something to be learned from the French here, in how they tell the ruling cliques that they won’t be taken for granted.

Macron’s ‘Pseudo National Debate’ Won’t Diffuse Yellow Vests Crisis – Journo

SPUTNIK/GILBERT MERCIER—”In France, and also in Europe and the world, people are not just extremely worried, they are deeply distressed. We must respond with clear ideas,” the French president wrote. However, it is doubtful that Macron is ready to listen and meet the people’s demands, according to the journalist. “One thing has to be mentioned concerning the first event where Macron conveyed Mayors to attempt [a ‘reconciliation’]: the Gilets Jaunes were kept away from the town by a substantial number of Compagnies Républicaines de Sécurité (riot police) and Gendarmes. Some were even fined 135 euros for wearing a yellow vest. Is Macron willing to listen finally and curtail his natural arrogance? It is very unlikely judging by the first town hall type meeting of this so called national debate which is once again top-down,” Mercier elaborated.

Credulous Atheist Believes Evidence-Free Establishment Russia Narrative

CAITLIN JOHNSTONE—Establishment-fueled Russia hysteria is a religion. It is an entirely faith-based belief system which has toxic effects on the people who subscribe to it, and toxic effects on the world as it manufactures support for insane escalations between two nuclear superpowers. As we discussed yesterday, if you don’t have a functioning radar for detecting malignant narratives, you might get lucky and find yourself in opposition to some pernicious belief systems, yet also find yourself selling CIA narratives to your very large online audience as well.

Guardian Reports More “Good News”, Kids are Dying in Venezuela

DAVID W. PEAR—The Lima Group’s members are Argentina, Brazil, Canada (?), Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay and Peru. Most of the members of the Lima Group are disqualified from judging anybody else, because of their own miserable records on democracy and human rights. Most of the members of the group are rightwing governments. Leftwing governments were left out purposely, except by accident. Canada should not even be a member. The Lima Group is for the most part mafia states, and they are doing the enforcement work for their USA godfather.
