The yellow vests of France: Six months of struggle
The Yellow Vests are still here, in the fray, holding the breach open. The crisis in France is far from over. If and when the other oppressed and angry groups in France also turn off their TVs and go down into the streets, things could change radically. The Yellow Vests’ avowed goal is to bring France to a grinding halt and impose change from below.
The French Stand Up
This intellectual revolution has only just begun, and it is likely to have a long-term effect on consciousness. Meanwhile, the French are not only debout talking all night, they are also standing up for themselves and for all of us in the streets and on the picket lines – standing up against the 1%’s relentless attacks on our living standards and on our lives. Maybe there is an alternative.
