Politicians’ had called for “unity” in the wake of the Notre Dame fire, but for the protesters the response to the fire only showed more inequality.
RT reports: Officials were quick to criticize the protesters for returning to the streets so soon after the disaster.
“The rioters will be back tomorrow,” Interior Minister Christophe Castaner told reporters on Friday. “The rioters have visibly not been moved by what happened at Notre-Dame.”
For many of the protesters, grief over the destruction of the 800-year-old landmark has made way for anger. With smoke still rising from Notre Dame, a group of French tycoons and businessmen pledged €1 billion to the cathedral’s reconstruction, money that the Yellow Vests say could be better spent elsewhere.
“If they can give dozens of millions to rebuild Notre Dame, they should stop telling us there is no money to respond to the social emergency,” trade union leader Philippe Martinez told France 24.
Saturday’s protests saw a return to scenes familiar since the Yellow Vests first mobilized in November to protest a fuel tax hike. Demonstrators in Paris’ Bastille district set barricades on fire and smashed vehicles, and police deployed tear gas to keep the crowds at bay.
Some 60,000 police officers were deployed across the country, while a security perimeter was set up around Notre Dame in Paris. A planned march that would have passed the site was banned by the authorities, but sporadic incidents of vandalism and looting took place across the city, with at least one car torched.
There were also clashes between protesters and gendarmerie in the capital. The police used tear gas and water cannon to disperse the crowd, arresting 189 people, according to France Info.
Yellow Vest rallies also took place in Nantes, Pau, Caen, Montbeliard, Bordeaux, Lyon and other French cities. The total number of people who took to the streets on Saturday reached 9,600, with 6,700 of them protesting in Paris, the Interior Ministry said.
Beginning as a show of anger against rising fuel costs in November, the Yellow Vests movement quickly evolved into a national demonstration of rage against falling living standards, income inequality, and the perceived elitism and pro-corporation policies of President Emmanuel Macron. Over 23 weeks of unrest, Macron has made several concessions to the protesters’ demands, but has thus far been unable to quell the rising dissent.
After Notre Dame caught fire on Monday, the president postponed a television address to the nation, during which he was expected to unveil a package of tax cuts and other economic reforms, another measure to calm the popular anger in France.
Macron’s address will be held on Thursday.
Now, for a update.
A embedding code has been applied into the video forums. So this lady named Nonya Bizness, left a comment, AssHole!! at YouTube, on the video called Yellow Vest Protest 2019 Update@ YouTube
'so she was tracked down to' Vimeo:https://vimeo.com/user30892620
Nonya Bizness @ Vimeo, and YouTube, is she the one that flagged the videos. It is not clear if she is left wing, black, white, or Hispanic. But she is a nut case lose or loose, detached mentally on the internet.
Our team will find out who she is.
None of your business... Nonya Bizness... This VIdeo is contrary to the Globalist narrative. Vimeo and You Tube's screening logarithms probably took down the video... automatically.
If I were you I would be careful on posting RT News items without first double checking the content for its varacity... RT News is owned by ANO “TV-Novosti”, which is funded by the Russian Government. The network is funded through advertising as well as hundreds of millions in USD from the Russian Government.
RT News presents news that is generally in line with the narrative of the Russian Government. It is the internet version of Pravda and Isvestia... Part of the Russian Propaganda machine.
I love this blog, and I like RT News, from Russia.
This Video is not contrary to the Globalist Narrative, the Globalist of the UN Global Migration Compact for open borders is why the fight still continues.
Besides She is being tracked down, to see if she is the one flagging our network team's videos. And how she finds out so fast that a video is up. YouTube and Vimeo depends on people to flag the videos, as millions go up on line every day.
The auto system for screening failed.
We could not find out all we wanted to know from google, so I bing a search, which does not mean she is the same person, but please note, a year ago our team tracked down a girl name Debbie, she was at this site and others, so their African network flagged a video exposing fake IDs for illegals. They started selling the fake IDs under the name of the Tea Party Command Center. We also shut that down.
Nonya Bizness @ Tea Party Command Center, is she the same person attacking our videos and we will find out and Hank will put together a team and attack her sites.
Like I said we do not know yet if it is her,"Nonya Bizness @ Tea Party Command Center " but our team, is tracking her tracking cookies her foot print in the internet.
We will find out.
This site is protect by my dads network team, and get a grip, we are not a group...Like Da!!!!!!!!!!
The protestors in this video seem to be protesting the French Governments Globalist agenda ... The French Government supports the mass migration policies of the UN, and is permitting Islam to engage in violence without condemning them as a terrorist group.
The people of France appear to be up set with being told they must take less and put up with the lawlessness of the Islamic horders invading France... The protestors are in fact anti-globalist.
This article is anti-globalism... at least it appears to support the people of France in their efforts to get their government to stop the exploitaton of the French workers in order to fuel their globalist agenda.
I viewed the video before it went on line Mr. Nelson. It was a simple test to prevent flagging, and track the activity against our network.
Nonya Bizness, left a comment, AssHole!! because the video could not be flagged.
And yes this blog is support the people of France. We do have the original videos of the yellow vest protesters from England to Germany to France.
Our counter attacks will start soon, just days away.
I agree Hank, she could not flag the video, Like Da!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nonya has unsubscribed from our network, once she found out she was being investigated.
I could not help but look over the comments, I will visit and join the fun, I would love to see Nonya take me on.
I do not know what this is all about, but google has not allowed the video in its search, but bing.com did something?
