France's Yellow Vest Protestors Took To The Streets For May Day (HBO)

  • Published on May 2, 2019
  • Tens of thousands of people took to the streets for May Day, in solidarity with millions around the world who marched for worker’s rights. While the French protest every year, these protests were remarkably violent as police fired tear gas at crowds in attempts to control factions bent on rioting, detaining more than 250 protestors by the end of the day.
    This was the first May Day rally for members of France’s “Yellow Vest” movement, which began protesting 24 weeks ago against what they see as President Emmanuel Macron’s pro-business policies favoring the elite.
    The group has proven to be one of the biggest challenges to Macron’s presidency and has already forced the President to make concessions related to taxation, pension reform and the closures of schools and hospitals. By turning up today, the Yellow Vests aligned themselves with a centuries-old movement that’s traditionally seen as pro-union and pro-left.
    “Today is May Day. It has nothing to do with a Yellow Vest action. It’s a workers’ celebration,” Jérôme Rodrigues, an unofficial leader of the Yellow Vest’s told VICE News. “Within the Yellow Vest march, you have workers who have gathered here to reinforce their demands, and show that they are workers too.”
    Rodrigues joined the Yellow Vests in it’s earlier stages, and in a January rally, lost an eye after being hit with what he believes to be a police-fired projectile. Videos capturing the moment propelled him to the forefront of the movement.
    “The problem is that we have a president in France right now who not only doesn’t listen to us, but also mutilates us,” Rodrigues told VICE News. “So why wage a revolution? Because the climate of violence was brought on by the government.”
    Turning out today was important for Rodrigues and the Yellow Vests because they’ve been losing momentum as of late. He hopes that the Yellow Vests’ presence at the May Day pro-labour rally will help bolster support for their cause in the future.
    “All this diversity- That’s how we win. OK?” Rodrigues told VICE News. “Today, we see that we ignored that [in the past], and that we have recovered something fundamental in France. It’s called fraternity.”

    Why aren't they protesting the mass immigration of muslims in Europe?? When i see muslims throwing with stones and destroying things, it makes me think about ISIS. If they had weapons, they would have use it. It's just a matter of time before we have a ISIS here in Europe.

    It occured to me "hang on a minute...Why have I not heard about the yellow jacket protests in several months?
    How did it end?"
    And I do a little research (ie: I had to actively SEARCH for a video like this because the algorithm buries it) and find that it's only gotten worse.
    How can anyone trust conventional media when they're blatantly ignoring a borderline revolution going on in a G8 country?

    This is a revolt against a government controlled by the global cabal, primarily by the Rothschild Jewish Criminal Banking Cartel. But, instead of wasting their time, resources, and energy, the 'protestors' need to organize into guerilla armies, and using guerilla tactics, kill and defeat the police and military personnel intil they are all dead/defeated. After that it will be much easier to erradicate the infratructure and institutions--the rest of the government, which is a 100% Corrupt, Totalitarian, Police-State. After this is completed, then all the perps, which includes the Rothschilds, can be rounded up, the top 35% tortured for three days each with needle nose pliers and a blow torch, on the 4th day--Fed Alive To Hogs. The bottom 65%--merely killed. It may need to get to a point where sticks will have to be rubbed together to get fire; But a necessary step in the alleviation of this most cancerous all-encompasing-blight on humanity. Then the most powerful Totalitarian tyrannical government on the opposite side of the Atlantic needs to have the same thing happen to it. History and studies have proven many many times that a determined minority, as few as 3-5% of the population can violently through off their chains of slavery, no matter how powerful the enemy. In fact this has always been the case. The braindead, brainwashed worthless masses have never successfully erradicated their enslavers--it's always been the determined few with integrity, principles, a moral-imperative, and strong-willed.

      Parce que tu paye des impots.
      Comment est ce que tu crois qu'on paye les indemnités maldies, le chômage et les pensions retraites, ou même les allocations familiale ? Avec des impôts.
      Tu crois vraiment que les pays où les impôts sont bas on accès à ce genre de service ? Non !
      Et si je suis entrain de parler à un smicard gilet jaune je peut comprendre que tu ait du mal à vivre mais il ne faut pas oublier qu'en baissant les impôts on enlève des services gratuit ce qui fait augmenter le coût de la vie

    I live in Southern France where each Saturday people are in the street to demonstrate since last November. But what really strikes me is the general discontent spreading among people who aren't necessarily demonstrating. You go to a bar and the conversation goes on politics, people are very unhappy. Meet people casually at the supermarket and the same happen. Some openly talk of a need of a revolution.
    Believe me last November people weren't talking this way. New ideas are spreading and who knows what may happen.

      @Steven Howe Your example here stands as an element of comparaison, haven't you learned how to argue? Also, your example is irrelevant as the social cultures between France and GB are way different. Talking about being retarded...
      The stats are available, you can look up the protests history, your lack of knowledge doesn't change the facts. The yellow vests are nothing and so are you, trying to defend them in vain.

      @RaptorTheMLGAce I think tis YOU that's the 'joke' as I wasn't 'comparing' Britain and France I was using Britain and Brexit as an EXAMPLE can you not see that you complete and total Retard? Read up Moron ^^^^^^^

      'Proper protests' gather more than a 'MILLION' are you serious haha you do like to go for the drama yes? Oh and that's in Paris alone haha

      Keep 'trying' you Moron but I KNOW that you KNOW you are a Dickhead - it really is as simple as that.

      @Steven Howe You're comparing GB and France even though the social cultures are way more different in these two countries people protest way more in France, when the French are angry about something, they all get in the streets, as I said, proper protests gather more than a million people in Paris alone, the yellow vests never gathered more than 300 thousands people throughout France.
      Oh and let's talk about the yellow vests lists who presented themselves for the EU elections. Guess how many people voted for them? A few thousands people at best.
      You don't know anything about France and you compare British protests and French protests, you're a joke.

      @RaptorTheMLGAce You are talking about actual protesters you Clown BUT there are MUCH MORE than 0.5% that sympathise and support the Yellow vests , in Britain there were a few hundred thousand that protested for BREXIT while 17+ Million people voted for it, can you see what I mean? It doesn't just stop at 'protesters' you know? Can you see the hole in your argument you absolute Moron? Looks like tis YOU who is the 'Fool' doesn't it you Prick - That's just friendly 'advice'

      Do you really think French don't have guns? There's 31/100 guns per people in France. For exemple in UK it's 7/100. You can find these informations on google...

    I have a message to the Yellow Vests. You are all so heroic and have done so much good. Progress has been made. But I think the general method of protest could use some change. Let it become a peaceful protest. When the gov. tries to intimidate you by rolling in with their military cars and armored men and shields. You should all join hands and stand together. Showing them you are only here for gov. change. For a better life! And when they attack you for demanding for what is rightfully yours! Then everyone will see who is doing wrong, they will see who needs to change for the better. Let it go out into the media and everyone around the world will join hands with you! Martin Luther King set a great example with his perfect demonstrations of peaceful protests for demanding what was rightfully theirs! And so many stood by him! So you all must remind the world of your humanity and rightfully protest for what everyone rightfully deserves! A proper gov. A proper minimum wage! Where a family can work 8 hour days and not have to worry if their children will have enough to eat. Keep working on. Don't lose hope! For as long is their is a will! there is way. Keep God in your hearts and He will help you through all tough times. Become more organized. Become peaceful. Set up well made public speeches with your greatest voices! With your best thought out words! Let the will of God burning with the compassion of wanting to help all others flow through your voice for all humanity to hear! Let us change our lives together forever! For the better. For the people. For all those being oppressed and wrongfully treated. With the help of God, nothing is impossible!

    I'm french and these people are the trash of the country. They live with the gouvernement financial helps, have no pride or ambition. All they want is anarchy. They do NOT represent the french people. Also, you won't often hear french language in the riot fronts.
    Like a lot of real french people, when i hear what they do to our policemen and monuments, the only thing i think is that policemen should be equiped with flamethrowers. Please don't let this footage change what you think of France.

      Are YOU serious?They are not trash!A lot of them are minimum wage WORKERS that work a lot and are deceived because they have difficulty surviving with all the bills to pay and cost of life overall while living on minimum wage.Do some research don't just listen to what Macron or your Tv screen tells you.

      Government wanted to increase Taxes on diesel, using the "climate change" argument to do so. But people in the countryside or in small-medium size cities need their car to go working. The middle-poorest class who are already struggling to "finish the month" felt an injustice.
