BREAKING NEWS:  ACT 9 OF THE YELLOW VESTS PROTEST IN FRANCE


(LATEST INFORMATION AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST)

And here we are very early in the morning in the USA, already a winter's morning in France with a late sunrise and as the day progresses we will see what kind of protest activity will emerge.

A week of intense government propaganda with government media and "private" media of the big corporations aligned with the regime, if you will, of banker turned politician Emmanuel Macron.

Privately owned BFM-TV actually staged a one day blackout on news coverage of the Yellow Vests in what was termed a "protest"

We had "law and order" rhetoric, pro-police talk with police as victims stories, real and otherwise.

Also the blaming of foreign governments in particular Italy's government over the Yellow Vests since both of Italy's governing parties, the outsiders of the League and the anti-Establishment Five Star Movement, came out through their leaders endorsing the Yellow Vests.

The Emmanuel Marcon plan for France could be explained as trying to change the country to make it more corporatist and globalist as in shifting the tax burden onto the little people instead of the rich and business.

And his attempts to say we have to save the planet by taxing gasoline at the pump into the ground have been met by a brick wall of outrage and anger.

The government stopped this year's gas tax hike and put more money into people's pockets at the beginning of the year hoping to change things, but the protests continue.

And here we are....

The Yellow Vests beginning to congregate in the central area of  Paris and mobile police units trying to interdict with stop and search tactics.....More later.....

(335 AM EASTERN US, 935 AM IN PARIS AND FRANCE)

Five arrests are reported in Bourges where a protest was announced for today, the city 150 miles south of Paris.

An explosion at a bakery in the 9th Arrondissement of Paris minutes ago.    No idea about its origin or what's happening.....More to come later likely after 5 AM US time.......

(530 AM EASTERN US, 1130 AM IN PARIS)

Police have made arrests in Paris, 24 in all, but the procession has taken off through the streets of Paris.   There is also a protest in Bourges underway as well as promoted on Facebook earlier in the week.

In Saint-Brieuc on the N12 highway hundreds of vehicles are gathered for a highway protest with a protester there saying the Yellow Vests are "more mobilized than ever" and that President Emmanuel Macron has "put oil on the fire" and he urges people to "rise up".

More later after 7AM in the US.......

(725 AM EASTERN US, 125 PM IN PARIS)

The Yellow Vests processions continue in Paris and Bourges, France.

The explosion earlier at 9am Paris time at the bakery was considered accidental by the authorities and caused by a gas leak.   Apparently not related at all to the protest and there were injuries, some critical at the site of the explosion.

(735 AM EASTERN US, 135 PM IN PARIS)

30 arrests today so far in Paris, 17 in Bourges.

A protest Friday night prevented distribution of 20-thousand newspapers in northern France.   It is claimed that there was a threat to burn distribution trucks for the newspaper.

Several thousand Yellow Vests are marching in the streets of Paris today and they stopped at the Bastille to shout "Macron resign" and sing the national anthem.    Another slogan was "free Christophe" referring to the boxer jailed awaiting trial for punching the police last Saturday in Paris.

Four are now reported dead in that unrelated gas explosion including two firefighters.

(830AM EASTERN US, 230 PM IN PARIS)

The procession of Yellow Vests in the thousands has made it to the Champs-Elysees in a peaceful march.

In Bourges 4700 Yellow Vests protesters are estimated to have gathered.

In the southern French city of Montpellier today two Yellow Vests protests, one by woman and another by bikers.

43 arrests in Paris with tear gas smoke now visible in the area of the Arc de Triomphe.
