France to ban ‘yellow vest’ protests

France’s prime minister said Paris’s police chief had been sacked and that the government would shut down “yellow vest” protests if violent groups were identified among the ranks of “yellow vest” protesters.

President Emmanuel Macron and his government have been forced back on the defensive after rioters ransacked luxury boutiques and torched cafes and a bank on Saturday in the latest flare-up of violence against Macron’s pro-business reforms.

“From next Saturday, we will ban ‘yellow vest’ protests in neighborhoods that have been the worst hit as soon as we see sign of the presence of radical groups and their intent to cause damage,” Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said in a televised speech.

Some 10,000 people participated in Saturday’s protests in the capital, according to police estimates, including a hard-core of about 1,500 troublemakers who Philippe said were bent on “looting, destroying property and causing injury.”

“These were criminal acts. The government’s response must be strong,” Philippe sad.

A new Paris police chief would be appointed on Wednesday, he said, adding that police officers on the ground would be given more decision-making autonomy and handed extra equipment including drones.

The arrest is not the first for Drouet who was also taken into custody at the “Act VI” demonstration on December 22nd for being in possession of an illegal weapon when he was caught carrying a baton.

The Yellow Vest activist came to national prominence in France after an appearance on broadcaster BFMTV in which he suggested the protesters mobilise and enter the Élysées Palace, the seat of French President Emmanuel Macron.

Globalists Prep Crackdown on Weekend “Yellow Vest” Protest

Protests inspired by the French ‘Yellow Vests’ are spreading across Europe as globalists prepare to crack down in anticipation of massive demonstrations this weekend.

Yellow Vest members are protesting against mass migration, crippling taxation, and the decreasing standard of living that’s been taking place in Belgium and the Netherlands, and more are planned for this weekend in Amsterdam, The Hague, Rotterdam, Maastricht, Groningen, Brussels, and more.

Social media and word of mouth are key to organizing the loosely connected grassroots campaigns, and a Dutch Facebook group for the ‘gele hesjes’ (yellow vests) has accumulated over 22,000 members less than two weeks since its creation.
