Protesters Take to Streets of Paris on 27th Week of Yellow Vests Rallies (VIDEO)

France's Yellow Vest protesters are taking to the streets for the 27th weekend in a row. A major protest is set to take place in Paris.

Tens of thousands have marched in the streets of France every Saturday since November 2018, for a variety of grievances ranging from taxes on fuel to income inequality.

In addition to protesting in France, the Yellow Vests have been spotted in other parts of Europe.

French Incomes Are Below America's Poorest States... And The Protesters Know It

With the rise of the Yellow Vest Movement in France - which began last October and continues today - French activists and writers have begun to re-evaluate the state of French income and poverty. Since the movement began, articles with titles such as " Revealed: The shocking scale of poverty in France in 2018 " or " Soul-searching in France as poverty leaves one million children hungry " have become more overtly political given the context of the protests.

Typically, the government's response to accusations of widespread poverty - which, as in America, are not necessarily accurate accusations - has been to spend more money on social programs.

But here's the thing: France is already spending more than the rest of Europe when it comes to welfare programs. According to the OECD, when it comes to "public social spending" as a percentage of GDP, France tops the list at over 31 percent.

Fresh rally against Czech government draws thousands

Thousands of people rallied in Prague on Monday in fresh protests against the new justice minister over concerns she could clear the prime minister of fraud allegations.

Some 20,000 people gathered in the capital's historic Old Town Square for a third week in a row, according to Czech media, and thousands of others protested in the second city of Brno.

Police charged billionaire Prime Minister Andrej Babis in connection with a two-million-euro EU subsidy scam last year and called on prosecutors to indict him last month.

Over 300 French Journalists Denounce Police Violence Toward Yellow Vests

Over 300 media organisations, journalists, photographers, and others have signed a letter denouncing the sometimes brutal violence used against members of the Gilets Jaunes (Yellow Vest) movement and members of the press themselves in France.

The letter claims that press freedom in France has been suffering for years but entered a new phase following the start of the Yellow Vest protests in November of last year, Franceinfo reports.

“All these forms of violence have physical (injury), psychic (trauma) or financial (broken or confiscated equipment) consequences. We are personally and professionally denigrated and criminalized,” they wrote, and added that journalist David Dufresne had counted at least 698 cases of people being attacked or injured by police at the protests, including 85 journalists.

How Russia Became Involved with Ukraine Part 3

Despite being vastly outgunned and out-manned by Ukrainian ultra-right militias and the Ukrainian military, Eastern Ukrainians were managing to not only defend themselves but also to drive Western Ukrainian forces back. This led many to speculate as to whether or not Russia had committed troops to support the Eastern Ukrainian rebels against Kiev. Western media and the governments it speaks for began crowing about Russian troops in Ukraine and “Russian aggression.” Russia, for its part, denied any involvement beyond humanitarian shipments to civilians.

The truth is somewhat murkier, however.

While Russian involvement at this point has been completely defensive, there is also undoubtedly Russian involvement.

World’s Autocrats Face Rising Resistance

In some ways this is a dark time for human rights. Yet while the autocrats and rights abusers may capture the headlines, the defenders of human rights, democracy, and the rule of law are also gaining strength. The same populists who are spreading hatred and intolerance are spawning a resistance that keeps winning its share of battles. Victory in any given case is never assured, but it has occurred often enough in the past year to suggest that the excesses of autocratic rule are fueling a powerful counterattack.

Police clash with yellow vest protests as May Day marches take place around the world

French police clashed with stone-throwing protesters as tens of thousands of people started marching in Paris Wednesday for May Day rallies under tight security. More than 200 arrests were made.

Riot police repeatedly used tear gas and sting grenades to try to control the crowd gathering near Paris’ Montparnasse train station for the main protest. It wasn’t immediately clear how many people were injured. At least two men with head wounds were helped away from the scene by paramedics.

Associated Press reporters saw groups of hooded, black-clad people shouting anti-police slogans, mixing with other protesters wearing yellow vests or waving union flags.

FBI INVESTIGATING ANTIFA FOR PLOTTING TO BUY GUNS FROM CARTEL FOR ‘ARMED REBELLION’

The FBI is investigating anti-fascist activists for an alleged plot to buy guns from a Mexican cartel in order to “stage an armed rebellion” at the southern border, according to an unclassified document obtained by The Chicago Tribune.

The FBI document, from December of 2018, warns of militant antifa activists planning to “disrupt security operations” at the U.S.-Mexico border. The group allegedly planned to buy guns from a Mexican cartel associate known as Cobra Commander, in order to “stage an armed rebellion at the border.”

Yellow Vests mutilated by 'sublethal' police weapons form their own anti-brutality association

Yellow Vest protesters who have suffered life-changing injuries at the hands of French police have launched their own association, promising fresh actions against police brutality.

Called “the mutilated for the edification of others,” the collective aims to accurately calculate the number of people who have been injured nationally by police during Yellow Vest protests. It also called for an end to the use of the non-lethal weapons deployed by French police — namely tear gas canisters and Flash Balls — and a large national demonstration is scheduled in Paris on May 26.

Among those attending was Jerome Rodrigues, a prominent Yellow Vest leader who was hit in the eye with a gas canister during a demonstration in January. “You have 19 people in front of you and you have only 26 eyes that look back,” he told the press conference. “Count, there is a small problem,” he added.

The one article you need to prove current US wars are lie-started Wars of Aggression not even close to lawful self-defense, war-murder millions, loot trillions, and require YOUR voice for .01% arrests

“It is no use trying to escape their arrogance by submission or good behavior. Robbers of the world, having by universal plunder exhausted the land, their drive is greed. If the enemy be rich, they are rapacious; if poor, they lust for domination. Neither rule of the East nor West can satisfy them. Alone among men, they crave with equal eagerness poverty and riches. To plunder, slaughter, seize with false pretenses, they give the lying name ‘empire.’ And where nothing remains but a desert, they call that ‘peace.’ ”
~ Tacitus, The Agricola and the Germania, on Roman Empire foreign wars in "self-defense" (analyses here, here)

Overview

The United States is the most dangerous illegal rogue state empire in human history, with escalating military armed attacks under President Trump.

Among the damning facts:
1. People around the world view the US as the greatest threat to peace; voted three times more dangerous than any other country.

Tear gas & batons near EU Parliament as Strasbourg police struggle to hold off marching Yellow Vests

Yellow Vest protesters have marched on the European Parliament building in Strasbourg, prompting police to deploy tear gas. The demonstrators have also swarmed several TV stations, demanding better coverage of their movement.
The 24th consecutive weekend of demonstrations saw more than 5,000 protesters take to the streets across France, including 2,600 in Paris, according to Interior Ministry figures, which the Yellow Vests have often questioned in the past.

In Strasbourg, tear gas filled the streets as police struggled to keep hundreds of demonstrators away from the EU Parliament buildings. Police have blocked roads and bridges, and clashes have broken out between heavily armored riot control officers and masked protesters.

Yellow Vests take to the streets in rejection of Macron’s ‘rubbish’ olive branch

Unrelenting Yellow Vest activists have marched in Paris and other French cities for the 24th straight weekend, just days after Emmanuel Macron tried to placate the protest movement with promises of lower taxes.

The demonstrators who assembled in Paris, Toulouse and Strasbourg on Saturday appear to signal that despite the French president’s recent concessions to the group, the Yellow Vest movement is alive and well.

US man rammed car into pedestrians thinking they were Muslim

Thirteen-year-old girl suffers brain trauma after war veteran 'targeted people' he thought were Muslim, authorities say.

A man in California deliberately ploughed his car into a group of eight pedestrians because he thought some of them were Muslim, local authorities have said.

Isaiah Joel Peoples, 34, faces eight counts of attempted murder for injuring eight people, including a 13-year-old girl, after he deliberately veered his car into the pedestrians.

According to the AP news agency, the teenage girl was the most seriously injured in the incident and is currently in a coma with severe brain trauma.

Three adults also remain in hospital with injuries that include broken limbs and fractures.

Here's New Mexico Militia Leader Johnny Horton Jr.'s Bizarre Arrest Record

Very interesting.Anybody arrested for felon in possession of a firearm would get 15 months prison time by the feds. No federal charges until this little stunt. This fellow is working for somebody IMHO. Even if this article is from the SPLC.

Horton’s fundraising attempts were documented in November in a Hatewatch article about how caravan paranoia was sowing division among militia diehards. The article revealed that Horton’s real name is Larry Hopkins, a fact he fails to make clear in his group’s fundraising pitches on PayPal and GoFundMe. Since then, Hopkins, 69, has increased the amount of money he’s asking for to more than $12,000, having already surpassed his previous goal of $2,500.

Now, Hatewatch has obtained records that show there’s more to Hopkins’ history than just his fictitious name and elaborate claims.

The militia members say they are fighting to defend their flag and their country, but human rights groups, like the American Civil Liberties Union, have denounced the group as a “fascist militia organization.”

Trump’s Washing Machine Tariffs Cost Consumers $800,000 Per Job Created

Seasteaders Facing Prison or Death For Pursuing Freedom in International Waters

As regular readers of Counter Markets might remember, in Issue 9 I covered some of the new trends in secession and the rising desire for independence from the State that have been emerging in various forms. One of the more offbeat trends I noted was “seasteading.”

Part of the seasteading movement is the goal to create alternative societies, but the same core notion embedded in all Voluntarism — basically the right to be left alone and pursue permissionless happiness — can just be one individual (or a couple) who sets themselves adrift. This is what American bitcoiner Chad Elwartowski and his Thai girlfriend Nadia Supranee Thepdet thought they doing when they began occupying a small structure 14 miles outside of the territorial waters of Thailand...

That same day, President Emmanuel Macron was supposed to unveil measures to quell the protests, but had to cancel the announcement due to the Notre Dame tragedy.

Such a move would be an open declaration by Israel and its Western backers that the recognition of Palestine is off the table.

In these circumstances, it is vital the whole of the movement stands with the Palestinians and that we defy the attempts that have been made over the last year to silence us.

20+ arrested, leader fined: Yellow Vest protests open ‘Act 21’ in France

More than a dozen people have been arrested as Yellow Vest protesters flood the streets of French cities, marking the 21st consecutive week of mass demonstrations against President Emmanuel Macron and his government.

Some 21 protesters were arrested in Paris on Saturday morning, local media reported, citing police. Eric Drouet, one of the leaders of the Yellow Vests, was fined 135 euro ($150) for violating public protest laws. The ruling was slammed by his lawyer who said that “if Drouet wants to have a cup of coffee at the Champs-Elysees, he has an absolute right to do so.”

German ‘rent insanity’ sparks mass tenant protests, expropriation action

Germans in large cities are protesting on Saturday against what they see as the unfair influence of large landlords on the housing market. They want the biggest players undercut and their property expropriated.

In past years, German people living in larger cities saw a wave of gentrification and rising rent levels. Some of the tenants couldn’t keep up and had to move out, while others had to leave when owners of their homes decided to tear them down and build new, more expensive property, which could generate more profits.

The situation in Berlin was among the most acute, with rent doubling over a decade. Some attempts by the authorities to rein in the growth, like the so-called rent-break in 2015, were underwhelming.

White House Aide: US to Pump Money Into Venezuela After Regime Change

In a special briefing for the Christian Science Monitor, President Trump’s top economic adviser Larry Kudlow revealed that the administration is already working with banks internationally in plans to greatly increase US investment in Venezuela if there is a regime change.

President Trump has demanded immediate regime change, with Venezuela’s president to be replaced by their opposition leader, who is seen as more pro-US. Kudlow says there is a “Day Two” plan to see huge influxes of cash if and when that happens.

This is in keeping with the Trump Administration’s belief that it can effectively shut down the economy of a disobedient nation, and then miraculously turn things around at a moment’s notice once they comply.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, please, but WHAT THE HELL ARE THESE PEOPLE THINKING?!?

Juan Guaido cannot seem to muster any significant popular support; in fact, he has been physically attacked by Maduro supporters; the military is still loyal to Maduro, and I cannot imagine how this guy is going to pull off a "regime change" in Venezuela, particularly now with the presence of both Russian and Chinese troops.

~lowering the bar of corporate media “reporting,”
~ongoing false flags for public gun confiscations,
~censorship of “crazy conspiracy theories” disagreeing with “official and credible sources,”
~US illegal rogue state empire (as usual) including with Trump dictating Venezuela’s democracy overthrown (and likely also “overthrowing” their electrical power), supporting Israel’s illegal War of Aggression on Gaza, war-mongering on Iran since Operation Iraqi Liberation (O.I.L.), etc., etc.,

God and US foreign policy

Lawrence Davidson shows how the assertion by politicians, such as US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo who believes that God rigged the 2016 US presidential election to assure Trump’s election and thereby protect Israel from Iran, has led to death and destruction around the world.>>

Globalism's Last Disgrace: Desperate Macron Sends French Army Against Yellow Vests

There are few people in this world more odious than French President Emmanuel Macron after his behavior this week. I’m sure there are child molesters who are worse. But as a man who is pivotal in the future of hundreds of millions of people, his decision to order the French military to quell the Yellow Vests protests with live ammunition is simply vile.

Danger to Democracy? 2018 Democrats Say Their Elections Were Stolen

Just last week, one of those morons over at CNN wasted 1,000 words or so telling us how President Donald Trump is setting us up to disbelieve the results of the 2020 election. Trump, this fool wrote, was a danger to democracy who could attempt to stage a revolution if he loses to a Democrat. It was full of all the same apocalyptic fury we heard in 2016, when Trump suggested that he would “let us know” whether he would dispute the results of that election. By casting doubts about the integrity of our voting system, these leftists worried, Trump was positioning himself as a would-be dictator. A menace. A bringer of the downfall of the republic.

And so forth.

:Trump slams Democrats' "ridiculous bullshit partisan investigations"

Democrats, he said, have to decide whether they will continue “defrauding the public with ridiculous bullshit partisan investigations, or whether they will apologize to the American people and join us to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure, bring down the cost of healthcare and prescription drugs... help us fix our broken trade deals.” Trump most recently used the term “bullshit” to refer to the investigation during his CPAC speech.

Firing on Protesters: Will Macron’s New Tactics Against the Yellow Vests Make Simmering Pot Boil Over?

A 73-year-old activist is the latest casualty of French President Emmanuel Macron’s crackdown on the Gilets Jaunes protest movement. Geneviève Legay of the anti-globalization group Attac had her skull fractured by police in Nice as they charged at her during the nineteenth consecutive week of protests against the president’s unpopular austerity and tax policies. The feminist campaigner and grandmother was carrying a rainbow flag marked “peace” as she was attacked, in what her family calls “willful violence” in an official complaint.

The embattled president went after Legay, currently in serious condition in the hospital, lecturing her on her “irresponsibility” for being in a “prohibited” area, claiming that, “when one is fragile and risks being shoved, one does not go to places that are declared off-limits and one does not put oneself in that kind of situation,” adding that he wished her “a speedy recovery…and perhaps a kind of wisdom.”

Three Lessons for the Progressive Left from the Mueller Inquiry

The left never had a dog in this race. This was always an in-house squabble between different wings of the establishment. Late-stage capitalism is in terminal crisis, and the biggest problem facing our corporate elites is how to emerge from this crisis with their power intact. One wing wants to make sure the pig’s face remains painted, the other is happy simply getting its snout deeper into the trough while the food lasts.

Russiagate was never about substance, it was about who gets to image-manage the decline of a turbo-charged, self-harming neoliberal capitalism.

The leaders of the Democratic party are less terrified of Trump and what he represents than they are of us and what we might do if we understood how they have rigged the political and economic system to their permanent advantage.

Protesters rallied outside the White House against AIPAC as the lobbyist group kicked off its annual conference on Sunday amid divisions among US politicians over support for Israel.

Pro-Palestinian groups, including Al-Awda, Students for Justice in Palestine, Answer Coalition, Code Pink and Neturei Karta, gave speeches condemning the Israeli occupation in Palestine and what they called AIPAC's overreach in Washington.

Others said they were there to show solidarity with Ilhan Omar, the Minnesota congresswoman who came under attack over the past few weeks for what has been labelled as anti-Semitic rhetoric and questioning AIPAC's influence on US politicians.

South Africans Threatening to Camp Until Cell Tower Was Removed Led to Its Removal from School Property

By B.N. Frank

There seems to be no shortage of people in the U.S. and around the world protesting cell towers on school property. It’s hard to blame them considering there is still no “safe” level of wireless radiation exposure that has been scientifically determined for children or pregnant women.

Hats off to these South Africans who were willing to take off work and camp out overnight in bad weather to protect their children...

Macron under fire for 'patronising' injured gilets jaunes protester

Emmanuel Macron has been accused of patronising a 73-year-old gilets jaunes (yellow vests) protester who sustained a fractured skull after riot police charged demonstrators in an off-limits area of Nice.

Geneviève Legay was taken to hospital with serious head injuries on Saturday. Jean-Michel Prêtre, the Nice public prosecutor, said an investigation had been opened but it appeared Legay had hit her head on a concrete bollard as police tried to clear protesters.

Macron, who was in Nice on Monday along with the Chinese president, Xi Jinping, who is visiting France, told the Nice-Matin newspaper he wished Legay a “speedy recovery”, but simultaneously criticised her.

“When one is fragile and risks being shoved, one does not go to places that are declared off-limits and one does not put oneself in that kind of situation,” he said.

SCANDAL: Today, Europe Votes On A Law That Could Change The Internet -- Sold Out For A Russian Pipeline

European MEPs meet inside the European Parliament today to vote on a law that will forever change the World Wide Web ... and that vote was bribed for access to an oil pipeline, Tech Dirt reported.

If the numerous blatant mafioso tricks by EPP Group and other political parties involved in the copyright directive or ACTA 2, such as attempting to change the voting date, intimidating politicians by threatening them, and changing the article numbers wasn't enough, a report by a German publication has revealed that the real reason Germany caved to France in February is because the country was bribed in negotiations to get approval for the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline from Russia...

Bishop Richard Williamson's latest on the holohoax

On January 31 last, the European Court of Human Rights announced its long-awaited decision to reject the appeal of the author of these “Comments” against his almost unanimous condemnation by seven different courts of law in Germany over several years for the “crime” by German law, of questioning on German soil in November of 2008 whether Six Million people really were gassed under the Third Reich... Now let us look at laws and courts which punish any questioning of the notorious murder of Six Million victims in World War II. Was it a historical fact, or not? If it was true, then to question it can be bad if the damage done is bad enough, but if the murder never took place, then it is in accordance with truth to call it in question, and not only is it not bad, it is positively good, to call it in question.

Belgrade protestors demand president, premier to resign

Another rally, during which protesters demanded the resignation of President Aleksandar Vucic and Prime Minister Ana Brnabic ended without major incidents on Saturday evening, a TASS correspondent reported from the scene.

"For four months, we have been campaigning for three major things: firstly, the resignation of president Vucic and Prime Minister Brnabic; secondly, the dismissal of the Regulatory Authority of Electronic Media’s council; and, thirdly, the resignation of Parliament Speaker Maja Gojkovic," Serbian actor and politician Branislav Lecic told the crowd.

He vowed that the protestors would take "resolute practical steps" if those demands are not met and if a transitional government, charged with holding early elections within six months, is not formed.

"Thousands will gather for a rally on April 13, and they will go all the way," Lecic said.
