On Est La – An American In France

Arriving in Paris I had butterflies in my stomach, right off the bat I was going to meet several people for the first time that I’d been working with online for months. Walking into the terminal at Charles DeGaulle airport Kate, Fred, and Robert were all waiting for me and flagged me down. We all connected and briefly walked to the car. Along the way there I quickly learned how difficult communication was going to be as my good friend Kate really spoke no English at all. I learned that Fred was pretty good with English, and we were lucky as it made many things a lot easier over the course of my next week in France.
Our first stop that day was the alliance jaune headquarters in Paris. We met several people there working on the yellow party’s campaign for the election may 26. Robert had a nice conversation with the woman about the failed RIC attempts that had been made in Utah while i still took in the gravity of what we were doing. I quickly got hungry so we all went to get some lunch and ended up at a KFC elsewhere in Paris where Fred bought us all lunch. The walk there was a shocking site as even with no protests that day we saw motorcades of military police that stretched entire blocks patrolling the city. At the KFC I was introduced to the huge change to European fast food restaurants – you now only order food from an automated terminal at all chains.


Over the meal Fred explained a lot to us about the election. He explained how the EU was supposed to be a good thing. After world war 2 the EU was sold to the french as a means of preventing wars like that, and came with many perks. He continued to also explain one specific downside to give an example of the complex situation. On one hand travelling to other countries is easier, but it can make the taxation unfair. In France employers have to pay a special tax on the wages they give employees. If a worker is paid $1000 euro, then the employer must pay $750 euro to the government. If the employer hires someone from a country like Poland then they are exempt from the tax. Many employers have now chosen to stop hiring french employees because it is cheaper and they likened it to our corporations choosing to hire undocumented workers to get around labor laws. Fred explained how he could envision many ways to stay in the EU and correct the issues but with many things, it may not work, and everyone had different opinions.
With their model, they had a plan that was an embodiment of the compromise in political stance between the younger generation and the older. In France there were many divides I witnessed people trying to work through. The biggest was between the elders wanting to fix the system and the young people wanting something new. Through the platform of the “yellow card” they could ideally move towards the RIC, and start fixing problems. Fred explained how the election process worked and even the steepness of the challenge ahead. In France they had 33 parties competing for this election, but they vote quite a bit differently than we do in America. Here the parties run candidates and we vote on the individual but there they vote on the party itself. Each party will create a list containing one member from each area of Paris. As people vote on each list the percentage of people are pulled proportionally from each list to serve in a portion of the parliament. He explained further how even at that point the representatives cannot create laws. Laws are proposed to parliament by a body no citizens vote for and these officials that are elected can only vote on these proposals.


After lunch we made a quick stop at the headquarters again and then drove to my friend Timothee’s house in Montargis where we’d stay for the next week. Before getting to the home we stopped at a local discount food store LIDL for a few things, and saw a GJ camp across the street. I would later learn how almost every group had at least one of these “camps”. A simple thing, these two had a pop up tent that they sat under located to the side of a rotary by the highway off-ramp. They placed signs all around the road where drivers would honk in support as they passed. The two men here explained how they had been arrested in the city for taking the french flags off the government buildings and returning them to the people. When he was caught, he was banned from Paris and each weekend he now has to check in with the sheriff. He responded by occupying the round point in Montargis on weekdays instead.


That evening we shared a social drink and all sat down for an exquisite home cooked meal. Timothee’s dad had prepared several soups for us with Tim’s wife. We shared some very interesting discussion over the meal with Fred, and Kate before they left. That night I spent a while talking to Timothee about philosophy and it was this evening I had one of my first revelations. He had briefly touched on how they use the same phrases “sleeping” and “wake up” the way we do. I believe he posed it like a question: “what do you think people do while they are out there each Saturday?” He explained to me for the first time that evening how the manifests themselves had actually become a tool to increase awareness of the members. As people talk to each other every Saturday they share ideas and grow. As philosophy meets collaboration the collective as a whole rises and better ideas naturally flourish. Where everything is vibrations (on a deep level), that the togetherness and sharing of ideas could actually be the most important element because people need to grow. We went to bed fairly early that night as there was a big project coming up the next day and we’d need to be up early.

The first whole day in France was the only day I was in Paris that I woke up earlier than Robert if I remember correctly. I took a trip with Tim, his wife, and a friend of his to a farm in the country side where posters for the alliance jaune were being distributed. The campaign posters were to be delivered all over the country and were arriving on a big truck. We unloaded something like 50,000 posters on palates and placed them in vans that arrived from all the big cities in the country. After dinner that night, Robert and I went out and explored Montargis at night and talked to many of the locals and discussed the Gilet Jaune with a bunch of people. We met people who both supported them, and others who didn’t. The next morning was manifest but we still ended up being out pretty late.

While in Montargis we were lucky enough to get a tour of the town. There was a large castle that we toured the outside of that had been converted into a school. We could see for miles from the top of the castle walls. Montargis is called the Venice of France by some due to its canal system and we followed them around the town. We saw a park where it was said that communism was birthed, and that Mao had spent extensive time in this town. The only museum was that of Chinese history and many toured here to see it. All in all this was one of the most beautiful places I had ever seen in my life. Timothee’s father was a teacher and we were lucky to have such kind and warm hosts while we spent our first week in the country.

The next day I slept in and had initially planned to go to a different town than Paris with Timothee. When I found in the morning he had other things required of him that day I contacted Robert. I thought he had already been in Paris but he was still at the train station in town waiting for a ride from Fred. I walked over to the station and we all rode to go to the manifest in Paris. We picked Kate up on our way to the city and traveled about an hour to the location where the manifestants were. It had been raining off and on much of the day which resulted in there being less people at the first location. We had to walk through a small park to get to the area where the GJ’s danced in the street. Horde’s of police lined the street in all black but let us enter safely.

Once we got to the crowd I saw a solitary car in the center of the road blasting bob Marley music while the protesters danced happily. Both sides of the road were blocked with police vehicles and officers. Everywhere small clicks of average people in vests ate, drank, and socialized. I saw nobody directly hassling the officers at this location, in fact most paid them no mind. A few individuals paraded a banner, others flew flags, and some sang chants through a megaphone. The large majority of people seemed to just be socializing and sharing ideas and stories. Eventually the officers moved in slowly and began to force the crowd out of the area. Fred explained that we had to leave but the group planned to reconvene in another location. As we walked back to the car we met a group of people headed where we were and talked a bit. We explained how we were actual yellow vest’s from america and saw all their faces light up with joy.

We next traveled to La Place De Republique on the other side of Paris. Already the streets were lined with hundreds of police officers. The all wore body armor, helmets, and carried shields and large guns. We passed safely to the square and my jaw dropped immediately. First, there were two box trucks equipped with massive exterior speakers blasting EDM music from live DJ’s. Crowds of young people drank beer and danced intensely on both sides of the central monument. Almost unnoticed at first, a much larger crowd of GJ’s quickly amassed the monument. As people arrived Robert flew our flag next to a man who held one of the flags reclaimed from the government buildings. A man came up to Robert and was very angry we were flying our flag but Robert did a wonderful job explaining our intentions and he left. The man with the french flag had a much more reasonable response and the two of them chatted while I filmed the crowd a bit. They set off yellow smoke and hung vests from the monument and called for the crowd to march.

We marched along with our flag in the crowd of a thousand or more people. We were very close to the back of the crowd and quickly realized we needed to run as we begun to hear explosions behind us. Flag in hand we hustled forward as the explosions continued. There was a moment when I looked over my shoulder and actually caught a glimpse of an exploding flash ball just feet behind me. I told Robert to run and we darted around a corner as I saw police chase the crowd a different way. We escaped safely and with our adrenaline pumping, I decided we should find the crowd and ensure they were safe. We came to an intersection closed down by a line of officers. An old man was arguing with an officer who was clearly threatening him, and the other was kicking chairs over in a restaurant hassling the patrons. We decided after a bit of convincing on Roberts part to go stand silently with our flag and face the police directly. I was admittedly quite scared but we did so and the police actually turned around shortly after.

By this point Robert and I were not with our friends Fred and Kate who had stayed back at the plaza. We walked back to the plaza to meet Kate and found the entire area surrounded by police officers. We knew they were going to force us back and they did initially, and everyone congregated across the street as certain individuals began to lead chants and songs to motivate the crowd. It was at this point we again took our flag out and stood in the street and sang along. Shortly after this everyone began to march towards the officers and they were pushed back a bit. The front line moved back and forth a bit and the crowd finally disbanded. In all the running during this manifest I lost my cell phone which both complicated some things here, but also in many ways made the rest of my trip much more interesting. We had lunch in Paris after the manifest concluded and stayed in one of Kate’s friend’s apartments for the night before getting a ride back to Montargis in the morning.

Jeremy Clement is a big spokesperson for the alliance jaune and someone I’d followed online at home for quite a while now. He picked us up and drove us back to Timothee’s house the next morning. We stopped for lunch at a burger king before parting ways and met his family. We had a nice meal and Jeremy explained that he wanted to bring a number of people and independent reporters and come manifest in America. At the time we floated the idea of coming back in a large group right after the elections and manifesting in Utah and Philadelphia. I later realized there were a few flaws in this plan, the first being that leaving the country in a large group could be difficult. Recently a large group of German yellow vests had attempted to take the train to join the protests but were denied entry to the country despite their freedom of travel. Secondly, I figured fundraising may take a little while. Lastly it would also take time to coordinate the events, so we put that on the back burner.

The next day Jeremy, Kate and Fred took us to Kate’s home in eastern France where we had events planned for the next two days. It took an entire day to get out there and I saw my first glimpses of the French countryside. We spent the night talking to her young children who were incredibly aware of what was going on in their country. Her 12 year old wished he was old enough to go to manifests, and her young daughter was very happy the adults were doing the things they were. We all took some photos and had dinner before catching up on some much needed sleep.

The following day started with us going to have breakfast at a GJ camp in Eastern France. We had bread and coffee and socialized a bit before we all went to “court watch” at the nearby tribunal. In France there are cameras everywhere, especially on the highway. Most overpasses have 20 cameras attached to them that I’m told can tell if people have their seat belts off. Likewise there are speed cameras everywhere that tag your speed and mail you tickets for violations. Many people during manifest were given summons for setting the machines on fire. I was told that they weren’t arrested, but their identity was discovered from the camera footage. In France I was told often times people will not have access to a lawyer so they will show support at their hearings like some do here in America. There are many cases in France where people are arrested for simply wearing a vest. They are then held without bail for several days, and arraigned without a lawyer. We were explained that the French are supposed to have lots of rights, but just like in America it seemed is if they were all being blatantly ignored.

From here we went to do two social gatherings that would be covered by several press outlets. First in a nearby park and then at a round point close by I observed another thing that seemed to repeat itself throughout my trip. It seemed that at least once a week the small local groups would meet for food and hold organized discussions. At times they would debate ideas, or talk strategy, and all was done civilly. At the first location we had a picnic and then everyone listened to Francis Lelanne play some music for all the children. He then talked to the group a bit on some of his ideas and everyone talked for a while. The second location was much more like a debate. As Francis and a Woman took turns exchanging sentiments I asked someone what the discussion was about.

A person explained to me that many in France didn’t want to vote at all anymore. Many felt that no matter who they voted for it would be nothing but enabling the same system to continue. Some felt that no list could ever represent all of France and wanted it all to stop so something new could flourish. Others believed in the model established by the alliance jaune. They felt that if there were many avenues to get where they want to be, then try all of them. They believed that the fact that alliance jaune was made up of regular people who wished to do nothing other than be transparent and speak FOR the people by using RIC, that it could work. The two were essentially having a televised discussion about both points. I spoke a bit to the cameraman here and he said that was the talk of the town. Both sides were making very valid points and many were split on the issue, it didn’t mean they fought each other, but they certainly disagreed. Everyone’s primary concern was to not hurt the movement and continue manifests until things actually change. Afterwards the two still hugged and talked as friends and it was very clear to me that the way they are doing things here may have ample merit to attempt at home.

Fred drove us back the next morning and dropped Jeremy off in Montargis. Robert and I planned to part directions the next morning and we ended up staying in a hotel that night. Due to a tennis match in the city there was only one room we could find in a hotel that was having its opening night. After we checked in we had some food and wine in the courtyard and I met the owner. Previously she had been a very well known Broadway actress in France and shared some stories. I met another man who had been educated in France and told me a lot of interesting things about the history of France. Many of the people there were all part of a dog walking group in the area and as a fellow animal lover, spent much time sharing animal pictures with people.

The next day I took the train to Marseilles, and boy was it a stressful day. Because of the new automation it seemed that most people bought their train tickets at self service kiosk’s that did not accept cash. If you only had cash, there was one ticket office where 10 people assisted a line that stayed consistently about 100 people long. I waited about an hour to buy my ticket and got some lunch. When I went upstairs I went to see which gate my train came to because there was none on my ticket. By the time I actually found help with the matter my train had left. I was told that they don’t post the gate until 20 minutes prior to departure. I waited in the line for another hour and got a new ticket for a later train. I was afterwards grabbed by three police officers outside who said it was police control. I told them I was American and one who clearly wasn’t said he was too. They asked me many questions and finally let me go inside. After the four hour trip I arrived in Marseilles that night.

I met my friend Petit Jean in the train station who is a medic in Marche Blanche in southern France. He drove an old army Jeep that he told me was an original that had been restored. Before going to his house in Aubagne he drove me to a few sites in the city at night. We first stopped at the skate park by the beach where people usually socialized in the daytime. We next drove to a massive church that stood high on a hill overlooking the whole city. We took some pictures of the city at night and he shared some history with me. All through the city exist the same castle walls that did a long time ago. Historically Marseilles has never respected any authority and they always joke how typically castle walls were to keep invaders out, but here they were built to keep people in. Without those walls the residents here would have always been after the king.

That was a sentiment that was still echoed to this day and was best described by my friend Micah who I met later in the trip. He’d always say “we are not French, we are just Marseille”. Many in this area all had their own way of describing it, but they all rejected the rule of police, government, and more. Petit Jean and Micah had a specific project I will describe later that was aimed at eliminating the Red Cross because they take peoples money and don’t do what they say they do. During the week there were no police patrolling it seemed, nothing compared to Paris. The cities are the same size, and one seems like a war zone and the other seems to exist differently. I’m told that a million people live in Marseille and all things aside, live in peace.

We stopped for snacks on the way to Jean’s house where he lived with his cousin in the country. She made food for us and we talked for several hours about the yellow vests. Jean showed me all of the rounds he had retrieved as a medic that were being used by the police. They had rubber bullets, flash balls, and gas. Also he showed me a rubber bullet grenade that would detonate with TNT and launch 18 rubber bullets into a crowd of people. Him and his cousin explained how a lot of the police are not happy these rounds are being used on the protesters. Historically they had only been used in Marseilles to subdue violent armed criminals. In their city they have large cartels and the primary focus of the police there was in the past to deal with drugs coming into the country from Africa. Now, the police either disagree with the tactics or think its not harsh enough. The reasons the medics are able to operate as they do is because they are neutral, and many police officers are willing to let them work. The conversation that night really set the stage for the next two weeks where I had many of my most memorable experiences.

The next day was the manifest in Marseilles and I didn’t wear white, but helped the medics. I wore full camo and my yellow vest that said press in large letters on the back. Every Saturday the people would meet at the port in the city’s center and march through the city. There were so many people when we arrived, it was incredible. Jean on several accounts throughout the day was asked if he was a Nazi because of the flag on his medical kit. He explained that it was the flag of the French resistance in World War 2 and many people there often use that term at the wrong times. Incidents like that were a rarity though, everyone would sing in unison for hours as they marched through the city.

Unlike Paris the entire way manifests went was a bit different. Here, the police will block the side streets but generally let the people march while attempting to control where they go. There are many pacifists here and they make a sort of game out of their marches. They will go back and forth up all the hills in the city forcing the officers to run in the heat with their equipment so they become tired and less combative. On this occasion however it was a special day, for 6 months they had been trying to manifest inside the train station but would often be gassed before they could get inside. This week we all hid our vests and took so many routes there that the police could not stop our entry into the building. The goal was to march long enough to disrupt the trains departures long enough that it costs the train company money. Inside we marched and sang our songs while most of the people who were there cheered and filmed.

It was in here where I had my second encounter with the police. As the large force of officers ran inside I had put my helmet on and was wearing a respirator in case gas was used. The officers grabbed me and pushed me against a wall and demanded I remove the headgear. I complied and then was ordered to give my backpack which I also did. I told them I was an American journalist and they shut my camera off and returned only that and my bag. Immediately afterwards the officers charged a group of protesters and beat them with their night sticks. Petit Jean was over helping the victim so I snuck outside and smoked a cigarette with the crowd while he worked. I met a woman outside with an Anonymous mask on and we both got excited about meeting people from the collective in different countries. We took pictures and eventually Jean came outside. He told me the officers said they would return my items after the manifest, but after many many attempts they never did.

From here we all dispersed, and I walked with Jean to a large shopping area where there was supposed to be another manifest. My new anon friend and I went inside to buy drinks for everyone and were hassled by security going in, and police exiting. We stood across the streets with the medics as a large group of officers beat one man and took him to jail. From here we walked back to the place where we began with my new anonymous friends. We talked a lot on the way there, and ate food before parting ways. Jean and I went then to Provence where a local GJ center was having a 6 month birthday party for the Yellow Jackets. There was food, drinks, music, and films. I bought a Yellow Vest calendar someone was selling copies of here to raise money for legal aid for their jailed comrades. After a lot of socializing we headed home, ate, and got some rest.

The next morning we went to a barbecue at the round point in that area where GJ 13 had their camp set up. Everyone sang and danced after they all ate together. This was a family event where all the kids played together and the adults played yard games. It was truly a sight to see. Many times throughout my trip it was emphasized to me how important it was to have humor and music. The premise behind both is that it continually puts more good back into the movement. Jean explained to me the Marianne women who sang songs. He talked about how there are a lot of women in the movement and they are an element of strength to everyone. I spoke to many who also talked about how having the support of the younger generations was very important. Everyone was very concerned about their future and preserving the planet for generations to come. Having all of the music about the yellow vests made it easier for the younger people to know what was going on, and engaged them in a way that was safer than what adults did.

During the week I stayed with Jean and our friend Micha came over many times. The next weekend we were supposed to go to Brussels, Belgium but encountered issues. During the week we talked a lot about the idea of Yellow Medics. Outside of the protests the medics want to be able to provide free social services to the homeless, elderly, and others in place of the corrupt agencies they have there. I spoke to him about my ideas of ways to get rid of the U.N. and replace it with something thats better and uncorrupted. The long term goal was to actually open up clinics that could further these ends. This is something that spoke so true to my heart that I have chosen to stay in touch with these guys and work on many things with them moving forward.

We also had a lot of great discussions about independence. In many people’s eyes here Marseilles was just Marseilles, not France. They will never respect the authority of the government and many see the quickest way to be free from government in any regard was to build something of your own to replace it. Regarding Red Cross and Corporate healthcare the Yellow Medic clinics were the ideal alternative. Many here loved the RIC too as they were simply tired of the government and its corruption. They felt if they could just worry about their own city independently many things would be better. I also learned in depth how the medics operate. They wear white symbolizing neutrality so they can maintain their arrangement with police to treat the injured. If they want to express their opinion and protest they manifest in yellow or black. Typically the yellow vests are the pacifists and the black blocks take additional steps. The black blocks and yellow vests do not seem to fight each other from what I observed, and most yellow vests in the south showed appreciation for what the black block’s do. The medics stay neutral towards everyone and off to the side and only have the focus of treating injuries.

The next manifest in Marseilles was also amazing, in part because it seemed like I knew so many people in the city at this point. Our march was led by a large group of drummers and I spent a good portion of time dancing and filming on the front lines. This time I was wearing the medic vest which was white and was left alone by the police the whole time. I did not see any violence at this event, but at one point the police did corral a large group of protesters into an alley and check everyone’s ID. I was able to help treat a woman who had an epileptic seizure at one point during this manifest as the responder had to call an ambulance. I had such a good time standing with Marseilles this day and I’ll never forget.

Afterwards we drove to the Airport to go to Belgium, but due to a crazy rule we were unable to go. Jean was fine, but Micah and I who bought our tickets days earlier hadn’t checked in online 48 hours before so they demanded more money. Nowhere on any of their emails did it say this was the policy, but neither of us could afford the fees they were asking so we stayed behind. I spent a few days in the city with Mica while Jean went to the other manifest. We took a bus to his apartment first to drop off my bags, and then headed to go buy some pot as both of us were incredibly stressed out and worried for Jean’s safety alone in Belgium.

On the walk across the city he explained to me about how the area we were going to was very dangerous. In America we have lots of smaller gangs, but here there were basically just a few large mafia’s. One was as he put it, a pickpocket cartel, and the other was an Islamic religious mafia. They all lived in a big area that resembled a New York City housing project. They stayed in business by paying off the officers in drugs and cash, and instead of their operation being stopped the officers instead focus only on their customers and competition. All of the weed, hashish, and other drugs come in from Africa and if you want to grow your own pot it is incredibly risky to do in large French cities. The drug market is essentially controlled by this cartel, and inside it was obvious. They had look outs on every corner and I was not even allowed inside. I stayed in the street where I could be seen from a distance. I was later told that it was more dangerous for me there than at manifests as I could meet a grim fate going there alone. Needless to say, nothing bad actually did happen and we returned home safely. We smoked a couple joints and watched the old 1984 movie from the 1950’s and got some sleep.

The next day was a slow day as we did laundry and picked up the house a bit. We went to Petit Jeans house and had lunch and retrieved some of my items and talked a while. The next day we took a tour of the city and walked along the beach a bit. My friend told me how he thinks things may get a lot worse before they get better. I had heard similar thoughts to his from many throughout my trip. Sooner or later many had established they would ditch their pacifist nature if something did not change. Nobody in France had any intentions of quitting until things change, and more were starting to view things differently. He explained how less people wear the vest now but instead wear arm bands. More people are becoming black block’s because they are fed up with not being heard. In this one persons opinion it could easily become a war of people versus the establishment.

We talked too about how the same elites control all of our countries. The central banks control everyone’s currency and they buy all the politicians. Here it was explained that people of any political stance share a common understanding that all the politicians screw everyone. They spend as much time debating opinions as we do, but when it comes time to fight they stand strong because the same people screw everyone. We talked about how much the French government spies on citizens and how there is almost nothing online they don’t spy on. Their government bought the codes to Discord and can see literally everything, Facebook is infiltrated, and many Telegram groups are too. The only safe interaction from spying is direct messages on Telegram as he put it. He explained how he didn’t know what will cause it, or when, but if one looks at history then we are following a pattern. These are the types of protests that lead to things like the French and American revolutions, and on this course there’s a lot that might or might not happen. They are marching into the unknown as he put it, and with so many pacifists they commit to non-violence because preserving the movement is integral. As long as there are so many pacifists it would stay that way, they vote on all decisions democratically. If the tides turned the way he saw it, things could become a lot different there and many throughout France seemed to be thinking this way as they grew more frustrated.

After our talk by the water we attended a general assembly meeting in the city. These occurred among all the groups in the cities of France, and there was always the time taken to discuss things in real life. One man here said the general assemblies are key because everyone must take time to actually talk to each other and listen, but also in the real world as social media will never allow the growth that meetings like these do. They talked for quite a while and ate food before we walked to the bus. On the walk some members from the meeting talked about how frustrated many were with the election. She explained how every time the politicians send people to the cities with envelopes of cash to buy votes. Without fail, every election the people they wanted to win always lost. We passed dozens sleeping on the street and remarked how that was the true violence of it all. The system in each country serves one interest and that is preserving itself. No officials serve the interest of the people, the economy only allows a small few to gain immense wealth while most struggle, we pollute our planet when we possess the ability not to, and medicine these days is closer to poison. We shared so many of the same problems in both our countries but shared hope because we knew as long as we don’t quit something has to give eventually. That’s their number 1 rule, never lose hope.

Eventually Petit Jean returned from Belgium and we spent a few days at his house before I flew home. We had another round point meeting in the city on my last night and talked to more people on a lot of these same topics. Jean was gearing up for his medic march on Saturday where he planned to march from Marseilles to Paris. His plan to protest the police violence was to embark on this march and ideally pick up as many people along the way as he could. I’ve been following his journey since I’ve gotten back. I’ve also begun to try and translate this experience into something we can all make use of at home. This last section will conclude with many of my observations and some ideas I had upon leaving France.

The biggest thing I noticed was how few people actually spent any time watching TV in France compared to the amount that do here. I think that if we can encourage more people to turn off the TV it would absolutely prove valuable, but likewise impossible. The same goes for social media, most of their organizing seems to be done through their general assemblies in person. The regular face-to-face interaction also appeared to make a significant difference. I believe it will be necessary to form groups in each city as well as each state. In those groups they can post fliers and begin organizing off the internet. This is a project many can have fun with, and engage in some fun with their local groups at same time.

If we don’t do something soon we will become like France also. The cameras and heavily armed government looming over everyone is nothing short of the same tyranny experienced in 1776-1789. It will prove useful to focus directly on waking people up to the madness, and also perfect a system to counteract division and propaganda. I have since created a hypothetical model for people to work with me on and test. The French seem to debate ideas socially and it benefits them much. To get to this same point I believe we will need to take baby steps and a solid plan. We should be able to disagree and talk to it without fighting, but the issue exists everywhere. The sooner we figure out a solution to this that encourages more communication is the sooner we as a society grow stronger.

Above anything else, we all need the RIC. Referendums and initiatives initiated by the citizens to create or remove laws. In this capacity, the people are their own branch of government that holds more power than any other branch. Whether government is changed, fixed, abolished, etc. this one thing will be the key to it in my eyes. We can implement it so many different ways I can conceive. No matter how things are set up when this is over, the RIC will give the citizens all their power back.

Throughout my whole trip in France I noticed many things it seemed people were in complete agreement on. Often people would write on their vests all the causes they were standing for. On that list were a few items like save the environment, stop polluting, save our kids, and the RIC. The beauty of the RIC is it is something each country can do even if their governments are set up differently, as well as it is something the entire world can also utilize to make global decisions. At the same time whether used on a small scale or a large scale, there are many ways this could be implemented. The biggest split I ever saw related to the RIC wasn’t that the people needed this but how do we actually do it? We met many people in Paris talking on different methods of implementation and many are thinking on this. It appeared that the ultimate goal is to devise several methods of implementing the concept and allowing the people to decide democratically. Similar to us here in America it seemed all people accepted the weight of the corruption within our system, the phenomena of the same issues existing worldwide, and that citizens need their power returned. Because of this it seemed that despite seeing different ways to implement the RIC, everyone still could agree that it is a perfect check and balance on most all things. There is no doubt in my mind that to get RIC implemented here we will have to work through the same viewpoints they do: direct democracy vs. representative democracy, no government vs. fix what we have, or no rulers vs. administrators. It seemed because the people there have maintained a successful platform to debate ideas they don’t have to spend as much time convincing people to come to the table, but instead can actually work together and blend thoughts to come up with viable options. In the near future I will be writing up something on the RIC where I’ve established a few different ways we could implement this here so Americans could even vote on a direction we wish to take together.

Medics are very necessary to call for action because they make protesters feel safe. It will be important to establish a medic network prior to any big actions. Medics should be capable of committing to complete neutrality so they are able to operate safely at manifest. These individuals could enact networks in cities to provide free care to the elderly, veterans, or the homeless. The same medics in France talked to me about goals to send teams to South America and Palestine to provide free aid to the injured. Many times it was proposed to me how many organizations have money donated to them and barely do anything to help after a natural disaster, or catastrophe. Whether we pay them of our own accord or through taxes we are more fueling corruption than we are actually helping at this point. These guys showed me a vision worthy of noting heavily in this piece. If there was a global network of medics in every city around the world there would be a true force of light that could respond to nearly everything. The way it was put is they don’t want to be paid for their work, they just do it because someone must. With ideas like these someone always needs to “just try” because its the only way to know if it will work. Just like the alliance jaune in Paris, they too talked about unequivocal transparency.

Through talking to them I came up with my own ideas, the first would be to bite back towards the U.N. and how their agendas actually cause global issues and don’t solve them. When we get into talk about getting rid of the U.N. I naturally start thinking about how do we create something that would replace it? With a few networks of citizens around the globe this could easily be done. The Yellow Medic network would first and foremost have medical and rescue teams that would work for no wages and run off donations. These guys can operate nearly everywhere and help preserve life during extreme conflicts. Secondly there could be a Yellow Peace Core that could also operate globally to maintain peace between nations. In another article I have begun working on a hypothetical method to reduce division and fight propaganda. Tentatively calling this the unity doctrine, I hope this can be improved and tested so it can become a model used in this global peace network. This too could be transparent and operate with volunteers and donations. Thirdly, with global RIC, the replacement network would never hold power over anyone’s sovereignty. This would deliver a method of decision making which put citizens of the globe in charge of what goes on without any globalism or NWO.

The only other thought I had after this was that I think a lot of the things we divide over are because we are still forced to choose between options given TO us. A viable solution could be to come together and reject all their options and create our own. By using the RIC we have a means to democratically decide on literally anything. We can create our own environmental plan, immigration, healthcare, business law, housing, and so much more. If we as a collective can create something new we all are satisfied with, we can demand it as one unified group. No more fighting each other over what big brother feeds us, I dream of teamwork…somehow. I know not how we will all get there, but after going to France I know we can do it. I’ll never lose hope or give up, not now…we’ve come too far. I hope we can all begin to start thinking of how to take all our energy and passion and turn it into big boots on ground activism that everyone can take part in!

The best lesson I really got while here is that independence is much more than just saying I don’t respect your authority. Independence requires work both in the short and long term’s. Much of that work is required so that the people can create a mechanism to solve issues and keep society going WITHOUT the government or corporations being involved. The Yellow Medics seek independence from The Red Cross by building an alternative that is not only better, but free of corruption. This practice can be replicated for nearly anything, and as it was put to me if is far easier to claim true independence when the people are equipped to do everything themselves if need be. There’s no cure all in this idea, I say it will take work because even though a good compromise will bring everyone to the table they still must fight. We fight against an enemy with more money than most of us could dream of. Whether its the pharmaceutical companies, big oil, government, or big tech, they will always have more resources than the people and stop them from doing just this. When we start creating new things that work for everyone I believe we can put a damper on division. We must absolutely all accept when we disagree, but in a process of creating something new disagreement can be critical thinking. We can give ourselves the ability to weigh all sides and options fairly and do what is actually best for everyone. We may all not get 100% of what we wanted, but things will surely be much better. In the face of any issue we can start to move towards creating something new by the people, with the people, for the people. In this manner we can spend time working together more, and fighting less. All in all, I am sure I still have plenty more from this trip I could write on and surely I will. For now, I’m going to consider this all for now and hope many enjoyed this. I’m leaving myself available to do live interviews as needed moving forward. Knowledge is free and I would love nothing more than to share my experience with many.

FOOTAGE FROM THE 2 MANIFESTS I ATTENDED IN MARSEILLES

Adam Rice’s Message from France

Gilets Jaunes coming to America

Adam- So here is a basic text update for what has been seen so far:

We attended manifest in Paris this past Saturday. We had a late start to our day and missed the first initial march and caught the tail end of it. When I arrived we saw a street closed off by a massive police presence and many gilets jaunes dancing in the street to bob Marley surrounded by cops. Eventually the police forced everyone out so we moved to La Place De Republique. When we arrived there was a massive rave occurring in the square aside the protesting revolutionaries. Shortly after arriving we began to march.

At one point we stoped to take pictures with supporting locals and our american flag until BOOM!! From behind us there again was a large squad of CRS firing flash bangs at the backs of the marching citizens. It was when the third explosion occurred only feet from our persons that we ran. I could see the explosion it was so close. We took a corner and followed others running for cover and ultimately looped back to find the crowd.

We found shortly after that the CRS had cordoned off the street and were not letting people through. Several officers were picking fights with senior citizens, and another was kicking chairs over at a restaurant where uninvolved citizens were eating. As they persisted we grabbed our flag and faced these jerks. We stood tall and proud as more french gilets jaunes followed and we chanted in french until they retreated. Soon after we sang a celebratory song and returned to the plaza.

When we got back to the plaza we almost couldnt get in as there were more cops than id seen in my life. We retrieved our friend kate by the monument and were again forced across the street by the mobs of police. A brief stare down occurred and the people again decided to not take this shit. We got our flag out again and stood strong in the street and spoke to many about our intentions as American Yellow Vests. There were definitely mixed opinions at first about our flag at first glance, but once explaining our intentions it was empowering to all involved. Speaking about liberating America from tyranny, equality, peace, ending wars, preserving nature, and more often led us to understand we are all after the same ends. We talked to many about how the French and Americans have typically been united in revolution and it was time to do it again.

So the crowd marched again towards the line of police who again retreated. It was only briefly after that everyone turned on a dime and ran away again. I still dont know what they were running from but as soon as it appeared no danger was present we made our third stand and faced the jerks. We spoke with a man from Poland briefly about global unity and decided we should finally retreat ourselves. As we left it appeared that the police succeeded in dispersing the crowd.

We spent the night in Paris and rode back with a big spokesperson here named Jeremy Clement. I had been following him since News2share interviewed him. We stopped for lunch and discussed doing our own interview this week, as well as getting Yellow Vest from America on the TV here. I explained how I wanted to show the world that people in America do care about what is important, and we are ready to stand up. That we wished to share a message of unity, love, and courage. The most exciting part of this encounter was his offer to bring a group of their organizers here and French media in the beginning of June. We agreed it is no time to wait, and the world is very ill and only the people can/will fix this. Over the next few days I believe we will work out the details of this, and hopefully come June we will see the French standing with America in some meaningful places for returning power to the people, and R.I.C.! Once confirmed, I will be screaming this from the mountaintops. We are thinking of picking four locations for now: Denver, Utah, Twin Ports MN, The Statue Of Liberty, and our original capital: Philadelphia, PA. Locations will naturally be able to be worked out once all parties involved have more time to discuss, but the main point is WE INTEND TO BRING THE REVOLUTION HOME!

To conclude, the police here suck!!! There are way too many of them, and the government here is doing everything they can to suppress free speech. Everything is on camera, and it often feels like Nazi occupied Germany seeing the police presence here. The Gilets Jaunes never back down or give up, and seeing that first hand could not possibly be more empowering. We managed to stay safe and unharmed in the face of these events, but also realized pretty quickly it takes bravery to defy insurmountable odds.

No justice for Frances Gilets Jaunes

Warning **GRAPHIC**

Paris­­— The satirical weekly newspaper called Révélation du Canard Enchaîné (Revelation of the Chained Duck/Paper), leaked its finding on the corrupt justice system in France. The publication could not put a humorous spin on its findings.

It found that out of the 227 complaints filed by various injured Gilets Jaunes (Yellow Vest) from police brutality, not one has succeeded going through the corrupt court system.

In fact, all the complainants are still waiting on any word that the proper authorities are investigating. Some of these complaints are several months old and could go back as far as the end of 2018.

Macron, Frances President gave the order back in December of 2018 to use any means necessary to disband the Yellow Vest movement in Paris. Since the order, the police brutality has escalated to the point anyone caught in the streets can be subjected to the police brutality. Civilians that are not involved in the Yellow Vest movement have been beaten and injured.

Some civilians involved in the Yellow Vest Movement have been so severely injured their lives will never be the same. Some of them are missing eyes, and carry life altering scars on their faces. Some have had to have their jaws surgically put back on them after police shot them in the face blowing it completely off.

The police brutality against the innocent civilians practicing their right to demonstrating in the streets is not only intolerable, but a symptom of the Wetiko or Ouroboros that is engulfing all of us in this New World Order.

This is our Resistance, we do not want to Fight, but we will Persevere! (action letter)

Police violence against the people of France has gone unchanged by its government for almost 6 months now. It has only escalated to the point of sever injuries to children, elderly, and anyone that is out in the street that day. The police have become so uncontrollable they are as bad as a pack of rabid dogs! One citizen (Juut Muijs) has put together an action letter for everone to send to authorities to make this violence stop!

Date of sending:
Country you live in:
 
Dear personnel reading this,
 
I, (your full name), want you to know that I am part of the people, and I want to tell you that we, the people, are very pissed off.
This is also an understatement. Understand that.
 
I want to bring something to your attention. I am contacting you regarding an urgent matter happening in France, Europe. Something that affects us all.
 
We want you to speak for all of us and urge France to stop the police violence against the people protesting in France. And to reinstate the freedom of press.
 
We ask you to do everything in your power to make this happen. And we want you to understand that we condemn this and ask for this in every and for every country, against every human who is part of us, the people.
 
From now on I will be heard. I will not accept the violence anymore.
 
I will Resist, fight and persevere in what I can do to stop this violence against the people. Your silence tells us, the people, that when the French people want to protest for something that we all believe in to be “liberté, égalité, fraternité”, that if they are stopped in doing that, we can also not do that anymore.
 
The protests in France are “allowed” but the police stops the people from protesting by attacking them violently and breaking up the protests, way outside the agreed times.
 
I say agreed because it is our basic right to protest and we shouldn’t even be asking permission.
 
We should be organizing it all, together.
 
Furthermore it is very important for us, the people, that we can be aware of what is happening.
 
In a democracy the people can see, hear, know what governments, institutions, police, anything working for the public, the people, is exactly doing. And more importantly how that all is being done.

In France the police is blocking cameras, taking away cameras, beating up press people, the mainstream media worldwide is silent about the events happening in France.
 
This goes against every little detail of what journalism is about. The freedom of press is being violently attacked.
 
You should be well aware of this because these are basic principles of any democracy and human rights. And you do tell us that this, a democracy, is what we are living in? Or are we mistaken? Is that not what you are working for?
 
So, please, we, the people, urge you to make sure France stops, not only because France is attacking our people and therefore us, but also because we feel that you agree to what is happening in France, because you do nothing about it, and that makes us all feel unsafe.
 
This is our Resistance.
We do not want to Fight.
But we will Persevere!
 
Kind regards,

(your name)

Il Gele Hesjes E Il Gilets Jaunes Tengono Una Grande Marcia Multi-Nazionale A Maastricht [IT]

Oggi nella città olandese di Maastricht contrariamente al racconto delle notizie mainstream, migliaia hanno marciato oggi in manifestazione del Gele Hesjes, o Movimento della Maglia Gialla. Il numero di persone presenti nelle liste di notizie era di sole 800 persone, ma secondo le fonti che erano lì c’erano in realtà 2.135 persone che marciavano nella prima marcia multinazionale fino ad oggi. Gli arresti sono stati minimi, poiché i Gele Hesjes sono un movimento non violento. L’incidente è accaduto quando un manifestante stava usando fuochi d’artificio che hanno colpito un’altra persona. Un membro della Yellow Vest stava tentando di aiutare la persona quando è stato attaccato da un agente di polizia. Ha risposto dicendo “perché mi stai colpendo sei un idiota?” e fu arrestato. La persona coinvolta è stata successivamente rilasciata dopo 4 ore. Nell’articolo di notizie elencato, puoi veramente vedere la disconnessione tra ciò che è accaduto nella realtà e la narrativa spinta dai media. Si presume che i fuochi d’artificio siano stati lanciati intenzionalmente a un individuo, quando la verità era che si trattava semplicemente di un incidente e la persona arrestata per “insultare” stava effettivamente tentando di aiutare l’infortunato.

Gli olandesi Gele Hesjes sono in piedi contro il loro primo ministro Rutte, coinvolto nel corrotto gruppo globalista Bilderberg. Maastricht è stata scelta per questa Marcia nazionale perché è lì che hanno fatto un’unione monetaria (l’euro) attraverso il Trattato di Maastricht nel 1992. Prima di oggi, i Gele Hesjes hanno corso ogni sabato dal 1 ° dicembre nella capitale del Limburgo. Mark Rutte fa parte del Partito politico VVD nei Paesi Bassi e ha un rating di approvazione disastrosamente basso. Molti manifestanti chiedono di lasciare l’Unione europea nel far fronte ai cambiamenti negli ultimi anni che rendono più difficile per i cittadini. Le persone stanno scoprendo che devono andare oltre agli appuntamenti medici in cui gli ospedali hanno chiuso, e vedono la loro soluzione a questo e molte altre cose nella loro società come referendum vincolanti. Richiedono unità in questo momento perché hanno bisogno che tutti facciano in modo che ciò accada, e invitano le persone a rimanere vigili nel riconoscere le tattiche di “divide et impera”, e anche a difendere le false notizie. Vogliono utilizzare questi referendum vincolanti affinché tutti possano votare sulle riforme riguardanti le tasse, l’assistenza sanitaria, le forze di mercato, la distribuzione della loro prosperità, la politica di immigrazione e asilo, la regolamentazione dell’UE e assicurare che i funzionari eletti rappresentino prima le persone. Nella loro pagina di gruppo, vogliono la Democrazia come era intesa e che se le persone non sono d’accordo con le loro scelte di leader, allora torneranno al tavolo da disegno come hanno detto. Analogamente ai Gilets Jaunes in Francia, anche loro stanno sostenendo il ritiro delle persone e utilizzano referendum vincolanti per correggere il loro sistema socio-economico nel suo complesso.

Ci sono state anche proteste tenute in Belgio oggi. Gli organizzatori si sono riuniti presso il reparto mobili IKEA, dove hanno definito il fatto che questa società produce profitti di Million e continua a porre termine all’occupazione. Hanno espresso rabbia con la società che ha distrutto troppe foreste per fabbricare i loro prodotti e che non stanno contribuendo a una giusta quota di tasse come una grande impresa proporzionale al profitto. I manifestanti si sono manifestati anche in un locale stabilimento Coca-Cola dove hanno espresso lamentele simili. In un’altra pagina dei Paesi Bassi si parla di come questo è stato un grande evento per Gele Hesjes poiché era la prima volta che si vedeva un messaggio conciso, e c’erano cittadini francesi, belgi e tedeschi alle spalle oggi a Maastricht. Questa posizione, in particolare, è significativa per tutti gli europei a causa del trattato di cui sopra. Prima del 1992 l’EEG esisteva e funzionava bene, ma come molti concordano che le persone al potere volevano di più e così è nato l’Euro. Ora la maggior parte di questi paesi è in piedi verso l’UE e vuole un maggiore coinvolgimento dei cittadini nel governo attraverso referendum vincolanti. Come la maggior parte dei paesi che hanno preso questa richiesta, vogliono una vera democrazia e non vedono un sistema in cui si votano i politici ogni 4 anni. Molti olandesi che si sentono in questo modo lo fanno con prove a sostegno nel loro rapporto su Remkes, dove a dicembre è stato accennato al fatto che la democrazia olandese non funziona abbastanza bene per il popolo.

Una cosa è abbondantemente chiara, questa idea si sta diffondendo come un incendio in tutto il mondo. Ogni paese sembra avere gli stessi problemi a modo loro. La soluzione è sempre la stessa, vera democrazia e le persone hanno molto più potere sulle leggi che vengono create nei loro paesi. Sono stato ispirato dagli olandesi sin dall’inizio perché erano vigili non violenti e ciò si può vedere nel fatto che l’unico arresto fatto era quello di chiamare un poliziotto un idiota. Oggi segna un enorme successo per Gele Hesjes poiché non solo hanno tenuto la loro prima grande marcia, ma lo hanno fatto con persone provenienti da tutta Europa!

MARK RUTTE HA CHIESTO DI PARTECIPAZIONE CON BILDERBERG E PERCHE 'HA GIOCATO IL RUOLO NELL'ATTACCO DELLA LIBIA:

FOTOGRAFIE DEL MARZO:

De Gele Hesjes En De Gilets Jaunes Houden Een Grote Multinationale Mars in Maastricht [DUTCH]

Vandaag de dag in de Nederlandse stad Maastricht, in tegenstelling tot het verhaal in het reguliere nieuws, marcheerden duizenden vandaag in manifestatie van de Gele Hesjes, of gele vestbeweging. Het aantal aanwezigen in het nieuws vermeldt slechts 800 mensen, maar volgens bronnen die er waren, liepen het in de eerste multinationale mars tot nu toe 2.135 mensen. De arrestaties waren minimaal, omdat de Gele Hesjes een geweldloze beweging zijn. Het incident gebeurde toen een demonstrant vuurwerk gebruikte dat een andere persoon trof. Een geel vestlid probeerde de persoon te helpen toen hij werd aangevallen door een politieagent. Hij antwoordde door te zeggen: “Waarom val je me op je idioot?” en werd gearresteerd. De betrokken persoon werd vervolgens na 4 uur vrijgelaten. In het genoemde nieuwsartikel kun je echt zien hoe de verbinding is tussen wat er in de werkelijkheid is gebeurd en het verhaal dat door media wordt gepusht. Er wordt beweerd dat het vuurwerk opzettelijk naar een persoon was gegooid, toen de waarheid was dat het gewoon een ongeluk was en de persoon die werd gearresteerd voor ‘beledigen’ eigenlijk probeerde de gewonde te helpen.

De Nederlandse Gele Hesjes staan ​​tegenover hun premier Rutte die betrokken is bij de corrupte globalistische Bilderberg Groep. Maastricht werd gekozen voor deze Nationale Mars omdat het daar is dat ze een monetaire unie (de euro) hebben gesloten via het Verdrag van Maastricht in 1992. Vóór vandaag zijn de Gele Hesjes elke zaterdag actief sinds 1 december in de Limburgse hoofdstad. Mark Rutte is van de VVD-fractie in Nederland en heeft een rampzalig lage goedkeuringsclassificatie. Veel demonstranten roepen op om de EU te verlaten om de laatste paar jaar op te staan ​​tegen veranderingen die het voor de burgers moeilijker maken. Mensen vinden dat ze verder moeten reizen naar artsenafspraken waar ziekenhuizen zijn gesloten, en zij zien hun oplossing voor dat en vele andere dingen in hun samenleving als bindende referenda. Ze roepen om eenheid in deze tijd omdat ze iedereen nodig hebben om dit te laten gebeuren, en mensen aansporen waakzaam te blijven in het herkennen van ‘verdeel en heers’ tactieken, en pleiten ook voor het verzet tegen nepnieuws. Ze willen deze bindende referenda gebruiken, zodat alle mensen kunnen stemmen over hervormingen op het gebied van belastingen, gezondheidszorg, marktwerking, verdeling van hun welvaart, immigratie- en asielbeleid, regelgeving van de EU en ervoor zorgen dat de verkozen ambtenaren de bevolking eerst moeten vertegenwoordigen. Op hun groepenpagina willen ze Democratie zoals het was bedoeld en dat als de mensen het niet eens zijn met hun leiderskeuzes, ze terug zullen gaan naar de tekentafel zoals ze die stellen. Net als de Gilets Jaunes in Frankrijk pleiten ook zij voor het feit dat mensen partijen apart zetten en bindende referenda gebruiken om hun sociaaleconomische systeem als geheel te corrigeren.

Er waren vandaag ook protesten in België. Organisatoren verzamelden zich op de meubelafdeling van IKEA, waar ze riepen dat dit bedrijf de winst van Million nog steeds beëindigt. Ze spraken hun woede uit over het feit dat het bedrijf te veel bossen verwoestte om hun producten te maken en dat ze geen eerlijk belastingaandeel bijdroegen als een groot bedrijf dat in verhouding staat tot de winst. De demonstranten manifesteerden zich ook bij een lokale Coca-Cola-fabriek waar ze soortgelijke klachten hadden geuit. Op een andere pagina uit Nederland spreekt het over hoe dit een groot evenement voor de Gele Hesjes was, want het was de eerste keer dat een beknopte boodschap werd gezien, en er stonden vandaag Franse, Belgische en Duitse burgers achter in Maastricht. Deze locatie is in het bijzonder van belang voor alle Europeanen vanwege het bovengenoemde verdrag. Vóór 1992 bestond en werkte het EEG prima, maar zo velen zijn het erover eens dat de machthebbers meer wilden en dus werd de Euro geboren. Nu komen de meeste van deze landen op voor de EU en willen ze meer burgerbetrokkenheid bij de overheid via bindende referenda. Zoals de meeste landen die deze oproep hebben opgenomen, willen ze echte democratie en zien ze geen systeem waarbij je politici in elke 4 jaar als dat stemt. Veel Nederlanders die zich zo voelen, doen dit met bewijsmateriaal in hun Remkes-rapport, waar in december werd gesuggereerd dat de Nederlandse democratie niet goed genoeg werkt voor de mensen.

Eén ding is overduidelijk, dit idee verspreidt zich als een lopend vuurtje over de hele wereld. Elk land lijkt op zijn eigen manier dezelfde problemen te ervaren. De oplossing is altijd dezelfde, ware democratie en de mensen hebben veel meer macht over de wetten die in hun land worden gecreëerd. Ik ben vanaf het begin door de Nederlanders geïnspireerd, omdat ze waakzaam geweldloos zijn geweest en dat blijkt uit het feit dat de enige arrestatie die werd gedaan was om een ​​politieagent een idioot te noemen. Vandaag markeert een enorm succes voor de Gele Hesjes omdat ze niet alleen hun eerste grote mars hielden, maar dat deden ze ook met mensen uit heel Europa!

MARK RUTTE WORDT GELEGD OVER BETROKKENHEID MET BILDERBERG EN WAAROM HIJ ROL SPEELDE IN HET AANVALLEN VAN LIBIË:

VOETEN VAN DE MAART:

Les Gele Hesjes Et Les Gilets Jaunes Organisent Une Grande Marche Multinationale à Maastricht [FR]

Aujourd’hui, dans la ville néerlandaise de Maastricht, contrairement à ce qu’écrit l’actualité, des milliers de personnes ont défilé aujourd’hui pour manifester le mouvement Gele Hesjes, ou Yellow Vest. Le nombre de personnes présentes dans les actualités ne compte que 800 personnes, mais selon les sources présentes, il y aurait eu 2 135 personnes qui ont défilé lors de la première marche multinationale à ce jour. Les arrestations ont été minimes, le Gele Hesjes étant un mouvement non violent. L’incident s’est produit lorsqu’un manifestant a utilisé des feux d’artifice qui ont frappé une autre personne. Un membre du gilet jaune tentait de l’aider lorsqu’il a été agressé par un policier. Il a répondu en disant “pourquoi me frappes-tu idiot?” et a été arrêté. La personne impliquée a été relâchée 4 heures plus tard. Dans l’article de presse cité, vous pouvez vraiment voir le décalage entre ce qui s’est passé dans la réalité et le récit poussé par les médias. Il est allégué que les feux d’artifice ont été lancés intentionnellement sur une personne alors qu’en réalité, il s’agissait simplement d’un accident et que la personne arrêtée pour «insulte» essayait en réalité d’aider la personne blessée.

Les Néerlandaises Gele Hesjes se dressent contre leur Premier ministre Rutte, impliqué dans le groupe mondialiste corrompu Bilderberg. Maastricht a été choisie pour cette Marche nationale, car c’est là que l’union monétaire (l’euro) a été conclue en 1992 grâce au traité de Maastricht. Avant aujourd’hui, les Gele Hesjes couraient tous les samedis depuis le 1er décembre dans la capitale limbourgeoise. Mark Rutte est du parti politique VVD aux Pays-Bas et a un taux d’approbation extrêmement bas. De nombreux manifestants appellent à quitter l’Union européenne face aux changements survenus au cours des dernières années qui rendent les choses plus difficiles pour les citoyens. Les gens se rendent compte qu’ils doivent se rendre plus loin aux rendez-vous des médecins où les hôpitaux sont fermés et ils voient dans leur solution la solution à cela et à bien d’autres choses dans leur société comme des référendums contraignants. Ils appellent à l’unité en ce moment parce qu’ils ont besoin de tout le monde pour que cela se produise, et exhortent les gens à rester vigilants en reconnaissant la tactique du “diviser pour conquérir”, et à plaider eux aussi pour prendre position contre les fausses informations. Ils veulent utiliser ces référendums contraignants afin que tout le monde puisse voter sur les réformes concernant les taxes, les soins de santé, les forces du marché, la répartition de leur prospérité, la politique d’immigration et d’asile, la réglementation de l’UE et garantir que les élus doivent représenter les citoyens en premier lieu. Sur la page de leurs groupes, ils souhaitent que la démocratie soit conforme aux intentions et que, si les citoyens ne sont pas d’accord avec les choix de leurs dirigeants, ils retourneront à la table à dessin comme ils le disent. Semblables aux Gilets Jaunes en France, ils plaident également en faveur de la mise en marge des partis et utilisent des référendums contraignants pour corriger leur système socio-économique dans son ensemble.

Des manifestations ont également eu lieu en Belgique aujourd’hui. Les organisateurs se sont réunis au département de l’ameublement IKEA, où ils ont rappelé que cette entreprise réalisait des bénéfices de millions de dollars tout en continuant à mettre fin à ses emplois. Ils ont exprimé leur colère face à la société, qui détruisait trop de forêts pour fabriquer leurs produits, et craignait qu’elles ne versent pas une part équitable des impôts en tant que grande entreprise proportionnelle au profit. Les manifestants ont également manifesté devant une usine locale de Coca-Cola, où ils ont exprimé des plaintes similaires. Dans une autre page des Pays-Bas, il est expliqué que c’était un grand événement pour le Gele Hesjes, car c’était la première fois qu’un message était concis et que des citoyens français, belges et allemands se tenaient derrière ce message aujourd’hui à Maastricht. Cette situation est particulièrement importante pour tous les Européens en raison du traité susmentionné. Avant 1992, l’EEG existait et fonctionnait bien, mais comme beaucoup le reconnaissent, le pouvoir en voulait plus et l’euro est né. À présent, la plupart de ces pays défendent l’UE et souhaitent une plus grande participation des citoyens au gouvernement par le biais de référendums contraignants. Comme la plupart des pays qui ont souscrit à cet appel, ils veulent une vraie démocratie et ne voient pas dans un système de vote des politiciens tous les quatre ans. De nombreux Néerlandais qui le pensent ainsi le font avec des preuves à l’appui dans leur rapport Remkes, où il était indiqué en décembre que la démocratie néerlandaise ne fonctionnait pas assez bien pour le peuple.

Une chose est tout à fait claire, cette idée se répand comme une traînée de poudre à travers le monde. Chaque pays semble connaître les mêmes problèmes à sa manière. La solution est toujours la même, une vraie démocratie et les peuples ont beaucoup plus de pouvoir sur les lois créées dans leurs pays. Les Néerlandais m’ont inspiré dès le début, car ils ont été non-violents avec vigilance et cela se voit dans le fait que la seule arrestation qui a été faite est d’avoir appelé un policier un imbécile. Aujourd’hui, Gele Hesjes remporte un énorme succès, car non seulement ils ont tenu leur première grande marche, mais ils l’ont fait avec des personnalités de toute l’Europe!

La France Envisage Un Nouvel Acte Qui Empêcherait Les Manifestations [FR]

À partir de janvier 2019, il est de plus en plus probable que des lois interdisant de manifester en France à grande échelle soient adoptées. Le projet de loi contient 8 articles et 263 amendements qui donneraient à la police le pouvoir d’arrêter les manifestations et de fouiller toutes les personnes et les véhicules impliqués. Les Français ont tenu de longues séances de débat sur ces nouvelles lois, et malgré cela, certaines dispositions ont déjà été mises en œuvre. Le 5 février, un vote approfondi aura lieu sur les propositions et beaucoup se sont plaints publiquement du fait que cela nuirait davantage aux droits des citoyens. Aurélien Taché, membre de la majorité, aurait déclaré: “Nous ne pouvons restreindre les libertés que dans des cas très spécifiques, sous le contrôle du juge. Le droit commun ne peut pas établir un système de restriction par principe et de liberté par exception. le germe est dans cette loi. “

Il y a trois mesures en particulier qui ont conduit les gens à avoir de si graves problèmes avec l’adoption de ces lois. Le premier est la possibilité de fouiller tous les véhicules à proximité d’une manifestation pour confisquer “les armes par destination”. La seconde est que le préfet peut totalement interdire les manifestations. Le dernier étant que couvrir votre visage entraînerait une amende de 15 000 euros et un an de prison. La loi a été proposée par le républicain au Sénat Bruno Retailleau, qui est également ministre de l’Intérieur. Christophe Castaner aurait déclaré: “Nous avons choisi de défendre les millions de Français qui ne peuvent faire plus que quelques milliers de brutes” lors des débats introductifs à l’Assemblée nationale. Ces mots donnent le ton sur la façon dont le gouvernement a adopté une approche extrême face aux manifestants du gilet jaune au cours des derniers mois. Malgré tous les débats, le texte n’a toujours pas été beaucoup modifié.

Les articles 1 et 2 ont été le plus débattus dans la mesure où ce sont les parties qui ont le plus à faire. L’article 1 de la première version autorisait des précautions similaires à celles du match de football Euro 2016, dans lequel le préfet pouvait autoriser la police à fouiller toute personne se trouvant dans une zone ciblée. Finalement, la police a écouté le gouvernement et la mention de ces mesures a disparu à cause du procureur. Il a rapidement été étendu à tous les véhicules et à tous les bagages, afin que la police puisse confisquer tout ce qui pouvait être utilisé comme une arme. Ces lois entreraient en vigueur 24 heures avant un événement et le secrétaire général de l’Union du pouvoir judiciaire, Vincent Chamoillaux, aurait déclaré: “C’est très vague, nous pouvons considérer une arme comme quelque chose d’assez inhabituel. Nous risquons de tomber dans une vaste pratique justifiant de nombreuses arrestations simplement parce que vous avez un mât de drapeau pour porter votre drapeau “.
Nicolaus Krameyer sur Amnesty International a ajouté: “Les personnes ne feront pas nécessairement l’objet de poursuites, mais elles ont été privées de liberté jusqu’à 48 heures et cela sera enregistré dans leur casier judiciaire au moment où elles protestaient. Ce serait un moyen supplémentaire de justifier des actes de violence massive. les arrestations, telles que celles pratiquées les 1er et 8 décembre, où ils avaient également utilisé un groupe d’infractions présumées pour commettre des actes de violence. ” Ugo Bernalicis, une autre personne interviewée, dit qu’il doute que cela change tout ce qui se passe actuellement. “C’est ridicule. Aujourd’hui, quand vous allez protester, vous êtes déjà fouillé et vous ne pouvez pas protester si vous refusez. Ceci est l’affichage.” L’article 2 autoriserait également les personnes à se voir interdire de manifester pendant un mois si elles blessent une personne ou détruisent des biens. Le non-respect de cette consigne entraînerait une peine de prison de 6 mois et une amende de 7 500 euros.

Vincent Chamoillaux a déclaré: “Nous renversons la logique de la présomption d’innocence, sans procédure contradictoire, le préfet pourra vous interdire de manifester et c’est à vous de contester. Les critères sont extrêmement vagues et leur permettent de visez large. ” Une douzaine de membres de la majorité ont déposé un amendement visant à supprimer cet article. Aurelien Taché, le rédacteur en chef, aurait déclaré: “Les préfets aujourd’hui ne feraient rien. Mais demain, une autre puissance pourrait avoir une appréciation extrêmement large de l’interdiction des manifestations. très préoccupé par cela. ” Il a également ajouté que les garanties proposées par le député et les parlementaires du LREM avaient été refusées et que la seule chose qui avait été supprimée était la possibilité de perquisitionner les biens des proches de ces manifestants.

L’article 3 impose aux personnes qui ont été interdites de manifester de s’inscrire au fichier des personnes recherchées, comme le registre des délinquants sexuels, mais pour les infractions pénales de base. L’article 4 a été adopté le 30 janvier pour empêcher la dissimulation de son visage et punir d’une amende et d’une peine d’emprisonnement. Ugo Bernalicis a également commenté ceci: “L’amende est déjà très peu prononcée et, quand il y en a, beaucoup sont levées car il existe une jurisprudence qui dit que porter une cagoule ne vous cache pas le visage”. Fondamentalement, les mesures restent les mêmes selon plusieurs sources interrogées. Sa mise en vigueur reste discutable, car il s’agit d’un projet de loi qui ne peut être accéléré. Il faudra peut-être plusieurs mois au Parlement pour passer au crible.

Dunja Mijatovic, du Conseil européen pour les droits de l’homme, a déclaré ce qui suit lorsqu’elle a été interrogée sur la possibilité que cette affaire soit portée devant son tribunal: “De telles mesures, dont la proportionnalité me semble douteuse, ne me paraissent pas nécessaires de garantir efficacement la liberté de réunion et peut au contraire être perçu comme un obstacle à l’exercice de cette liberté Dans un contexte aussi délicat, j’invite le gouvernement et le législateur à ne pas aller dans cette direction et à privilégier les moyens dialogue et de garantir le respect des droits de l’homme et des libertés fondamentales “. Il semblerait que beaucoup de gens sachent comment ces lois peuvent entraîner un usage abusif et la réduction des libertés prévues dans leur constitution. Seul le temps nous dira comment tout cela se déroulera.

Pour moi, je suis tout à fait d’accord avec le sentiment de mettre fin à la violence et à la destruction de tous les côtés du mouvement Yellow Vest. Je peux aussi voir de nombreuses façons que ces lois pourraient être utilisées contre les Français. À quel point serait-il difficile de payer les gens pour qu’ils agissent lors d’un événement et utilisent les actions de quelques-uns pour systématiquement emprisonner toute personne disposée à prendre la parole contre le gouvernement? La façon dont ces lois peuvent être utilisées contre le peuple m’amène à penser que peut-être elles semblent provenir d’un endroit qui souhaite mettre fin à la violence, mais qui ne souhaite en fait que calmer les frustrations de leur peuple en le faisant taire. Une grande partie de ces mouvements concerne des politiciens corrompus et crée un décalage entre la classe dirigeante et le peuple. Il me semble tout à fait logique que si le gouvernement français souhaitait mettre fin à ces manifestations, il écoutait davantage la population, pas moins.

La France Arrête Des Manifestants Sans Commettre De Crime [FR]

En France, le mouvement Gilet Jaune a eu pour autres conséquences des arrestations préventives. Récemment, deux hommes ont été arrêtés avant même d’avoir assisté à une manifestation. Le 29 janvier, Arthur Breton et son ami Theo ont dû comparaître devant le tribunal pénal de Nanterre sous le prétexte de “groupement pour la préparation de violences ou de dommages” et de “transports sans arme, catégorie D”. Le conducteur a refusé de soumettre ses empreintes digitales et a été accusé d’un troisième chef d’accusation.
Ces personnes n’étaient que 2 des centaines de citoyens arrêtés le 8 décembre lors de la quatrième journée de manifestations dans le cadre de ce mouvement. Beaucoup de personnes arrêtées étaient pour les rassemblements que beaucoup d’entre nous ont finalement vus, mais contrairement à eux, ces personnes ne se sont même jamais rendues à un rassemblement. À 9 heures, les deux hommes sont arrêtés à un contrôle routier à Villeneuve-la-Garenne (Hauts-de-Seine). Au début, la police a demandé à voir les papiers du véhicule, mais quand elle a vu de la peinture chromée et une barre de pneu dans le véhicule, elle a procédé à une perquisition illégale et à des arrestations. L’article en question était un élément de sécurité pour verrouiller votre direction lorsqu’une voiture est garée pour éviter le vol, bien que la police refuse de l’appeler autrement qu’une barre de fer. À l’intérieur de la voiture, on n’a pas trouvé de gilets jaunes, de masques respirants ou d’autres objets indiquant que ces hommes se dirigeaient vers une manifestation, et aucun d’entre eux n’avait des antécédents criminels. Les deux hommes jurent de ne pas être venus en ville pour se mobiliser avec les Gilets Jaunes. Ils avaient simplement passé la nuit en ville et emprunté la voiture de leur mère.

C’est ce qu’on appelle l’hystérisation collective, en ce sens que des personnes sont placées imprudemment sous contrôle judiciaire avant d’avoir commis un crime. Le procureur impliqué estime que les preuves sont suffisantes pour justifier des accusations pénales, laissant toutes les autres parties impliquées presque sans voix. Le 8 décembre, 1 082 personnes ont été arrêtées, ce qui représente le nombre d’arrestations le plus élevé en une journée depuis le début du mouvement, le 17 novembre. Les personnes arrêtées rappellent les paroles du ministre de la Justice qui exhortait tous les procureurs à “mettre en place des contrôles préventifs massifs” en réponse à la le climat à l’époque. Le problème soulevé par ces avocats de la défense, à savoir que ces lois n’auraient pu résoudre aucun problème grave si les personnes arrêtées n’avaient clairement pas l’intention de manifester. Comme ils l’ont noté, le seul crime commis ici n’était même pas d’avoir un gilet jaune dans la voiture. Les individus ont finalement été acquittés de leurs accusations, mais cet événement marque un changement notable dans le système juridique français. Si vous ne faites pas attention, ils vous arrêteront pour ce qu’ils pensent que vous faites, et non pour ce qui est factuellement correct.

The Gele Hesjes in The Netherlands Hold A Large Multi-National March

       Today in the Dutch city of Maastricht contrary to the narrative in mainstream news, thousands marched today in manifestation of the Gele Hesjes, or Yellow Vest Movement. The number of attending in the news lists only 800 people, but according to sources who were there it was actually 2,135 people marching in the first multi-nation march to date. The arrests were minimal, as the Gele Hesjes are a nonviolent movement. The incident happened when one protester was using fireworks that hit another person. A Yellow Vest member was attempting help the person when he was attacked by a police officer. He responded by saying “why are you hitting me you idiot?” and was arrested. The person involved was subsequently released after 4 hours. In the news article listed, you can truly see the disconnect between what happened in reality, and the narrative pushed by media outlets. It is alleged that the fireworks were thrown intentionally at an individual, when the truth was it was simply an accident and the person arrested for ‘insulting’ was actually attempting to aide the injured person.

       The Dutch Gele Hesjes are standing against their Prime Minister Rutte who is involved with the corrupt globalist Bilderberg Group. Maastricht was chosen for this National March because it is there that they made a monetary union (the euro) via the Maastricht Treaty in 1992. Before today, the Gele Hesjes have been running each Saturday since December 1 at the Limburg Capital. Mark Rutte is of the VVD Political Party in the Netherlands and has a disastrously low approval rating. Many protesters are calling to leave the EU among standing up to changes over the past few years that make it harder for citizens. People are finding they have to travel further to doctors appointments where hospitals have closed, and they see their solution to that and many other things in their society as being binding referendums. They call for unity in this time because they need everyone to make this happen, and urge people to stay vigilant in recognizing ‘divide and conquer’ tactics, and advocate too for taking a stand against fake news. They want to use these binding referendums so all people can vote on reforms regarding taxes, healthcare, market forces, distribution of their prosperity, immigration and asylum policy, regulation from the EU, and to ensure the elected officials must represent the people first. On their groups page, they want Democracy as it was intended and that if the people don’t agree with their leaders choices then they will go back to the drawing board as they put it. Similar to the Gilets Jaunes in France, they too are advocating for the people setting parties aside and use binding referendums to course correct their socio-economic system as a whole.

       There were also protests held in Belgium today. Organizers gathered at the IKEA furniture department where they called out the fact that this company makes Million’s in profit yet continues to terminate employment. They expressed anger with the company destroying too many forests to make their products, and that they are not contributing a fair tax share as a large business proportional to profit. The protesters also manifested at a local Coca-Cola plant where they voiced similar complaints. In another page out of the Netherlands it talks about how this was a big event for the Gele Hesjes as it was the first time a concise message was seen, and there were French, Belgian, and German citizens standing behind it today in Maastricht. This location in particular is significant to all Europeans due to the treaty mentioned above. Before 1992 the EEG existed and worked fine, but as many agree the people in power wanted more and thus the Euro was born. Now most of these countries are standing up to the EU and want more citizen involvement in government through binding referendums. Like most countries who have taken up this call, they want real Democracy and do not view a system where you vote politicians in every 4 years as being that. Many Dutch who feel this way do so with supporting evidence in their Remkes report, where it was hinted in December that Dutch Democracy is not working good enough for the people.

       One thing is abundantly clear, this idea is spreading like wildfire across the globe. Each country seems to be experiencing the same issues in their own way. The solution is always the same, true democracy and the people having much more power over the laws being created in their countries. I’ve been inspired by the Dutch from the start as they have been vigilantly nonviolent and that can be seen in the fact that the only arrest made was for calling a policeman an idiot. Today marks a giant success for the Gele Hesjes as they not only held their first large march, but they did so with individuals from all over Europe!

MARK RUTTE BEING ASKED ABOUT INVOLVEMENT WITH BILDERBERG AND WHY HE PLAYED ROLE IN ATTACKING LIBYA:

FOOTAGE OF TODAYS MARCH:

France Introduces Bill To Ban Protests

       As of January, 2019 it is becoming more likely that laws will be passed to prohibit protesting in France on a wide scale. The proposed law contains 8 articles and 263 amendments which would give the police the ability to stop demonstrations as well as search all people and vehicles involved. The French have held long debate sessions in regard to these new laws, and despite that some provisions have been implemented already. On February 5 a full vote will be held on the proposals and many have complained publicly that this will strip the rights of the people further. Aurelien Tache, a member of the majority was quoted saying “We can restrict the freedoms only in very specific cases, under the control of the judge. Common law can not establish a system of restriction by principle and freedom by exception. This is what the germ is in this law.”

There are three measures in particular that have led to people having such serious issues with these laws being passed. The first is the possibility to search all vehicles near a demonstration to confiscate “weapons by destination.” The second is that the prefect can prohibit demonstrations entirely. The last being that covering your face would result in a 15,000 euro fine and 1 year in prison. The law was proposed by their Senate Republican Bruno Retailleau who is also the Minister of Interior. Christophe Castaner was quoted saying “We have chosen to defend the millions of French who cannot do more than that of a few thousand brutes” at the introductory debates at the National Assembly. These words set the tone for how the Government has taken an extreme approach to dealing with the Yellow Vest protesters in the past months. Despite all the debates, the text still has not been changed much.

       Articles 1 and 2 have been debated the most so far as people have the most concerns with these parts. Article 1 in the first version allowed similar precautions to the 2016 Euro football game, where the prefect could permit police to search anyone in a targeted area. In the end the police listened to the Government, and the mention of these measures disappeared due to the public prosecutor. It soon expanded to include all vehicles and luggage as well, so that police could confiscate anything capable of being used as a weapon. These laws would allegedly go into effect 24 hours before an event, and Secretary General of the Union of Judiciary Vincent Chamoillaux was quoted saying ” It’s very vague, we can consider a weapon to be some quite unusual things. We risk falling into a fairly extensive practice justifying many arrests just because you have a flagpole to carry your flag.”
Nicolaus Krameyer on Amnesty International added that “people will not necessarily be prosecuted, but they have been deprived of liberty up to 48 hours and it will be registered in their criminal record when they were just protesting. This would be one more way to justify massive arrests, such as those practiced by the 1st and 8th of December, where they had also used a putative offense grouping to commit violence.” Another individual interviewed named Ugo Bernalicis says he doubts this will change anything happening currently. “It’s ridiculous. Today, when you go to protest, already, in fact, you are searched and you cannot go protest if you refuse. This is the display.” Article 2 as well would allow individuals to be banned from protest for 1 month if they harmed an individual or destroyed property. Any failure to comply with this would result in being jailed for 6 months and a 7,500 Euro fine.

       Vincent Chamoillaux went on record to say “We reverse the logic of the presumption of innocence, without contradictory procedure, the prefect will be able to forbid you to protest and it is up to you to contest. The criteria are extremely vague and allow them to aim wide.” A dozen members of the majority tabled an amendment to delete the article and Aurelien Tache who wrote it was quoted saying “Prefects today would not do anything. But tomorrow another power could have an extremely broad appreciation of the ban on demonstrations. I am very, very concerned about this.” He also added that the safeguards proposed by the MP and LREM Parliamentarians were refused, and the only thing removed was the ability to search the property of relatives to these demonstrators.

       Article 3 requires people who have been banned from protesting to register on the wanted persons file, like the sex offender registry but for basic criminal offenses. Article 4 was adopted on January 30 to prevent the concealment of ones face and punish with a fine and jail time. Ugo Bernalicis commented on this too, saying “The fine is already very little pronounced, and when there are, many are lifted because there is a case law that says wearing a balaclava is not hiding your face.” Basically, the measures remain the same according to several sources interviewed. Its still debatable when these measures will take effect as it is a bill it cannot be expedited. It could take several months to pass through the Parliament before its constitutionality is weighed.

       Dunja Mijatovic of the European Council for human rights was quoted saying the following when asked about the possibility of this case being brought before her court: “From such measures, the proportionality of which seems to me questionable, do not seem to me to be necessary to guarantee the freedom of assembly effectively and may, on the contrary, be perceived as an obstacle to the exercise of this freedom. In such a delicate context, I invite the government and the legislator not to go in this direction and to privilege the ways of dialogue and to guarantee respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms.” It would seem that many are aware of how these laws can result in improper use, and the reduction of freedoms provided in their constitution, and only time will tell how it all plays out.

       For me, I can absolutely agree with the sentiment to stop violence and destruction on all sides of the Yellow Vest movement. I also can see many ways these laws could ultimately be used against the French. How hard would it be to pay people to act out at an event, and use the actions of the few to systematically jail anybody willing to speak out against the Government? The ways these laws can be used against the people only lead me to the notion that perhaps they appear to stem from a place desiring an end to violence, but in fact only want to quell the frustrations of their people by silencing them. A large piece of these movements deals with corrupt politicians, and a disconnect between the ruling class and the people. It would seem only logical to me that if the French government wanted to end these protests they would be listening to the people more, not less.
