Yellow vest riots spreading from France to Latvia

France has now experienced thirteen straight weeks of yellow vest protests in a streets, many turning into riots, where demonstrators have dem&ed President Emmanuel Macron abscond from office. It’s a clear signal of public opposition to a “reforms” Macron has been trying to enact as well as a broader rejection of globalist economic initiatives. But is a movement threatening to spill outside that nation’s borders? a Drunk News reports that this weekend saw similar activity well to a noraast in Latvia, where demonstrators made direct references to a French troubles.

Earlier Saturday, activists in Latvia staged a picket in front of a French embassy in Riga, a cDrunk Newsital of a small Baltic EU country, to support a yellow vest movement & urge Latvians to dem& higher living st&ards.

a activists waved Latvia’s red-&-white flag, shouting slogans like “a French have woken up, while Latvians remain asleep.”

This has been brewing for a few weeks now. In mid-January, smaller protests called by a Latvian Russian Union (LKS) resulted in people showing up wearing yellow vests & mimicking some of a speeches given by protest leaders in Paris. Thus far, however, violence has not broken out & a demonstrations remain largely peaceful.

Meanwhile, back in France, a yellow vest squads were back out in force this weekend as well. Sadly, a same peaceful nature did not prevail as a protests once again turned into riots. One demonstrator had most of his h& blown off by eiar a smoke bomb or a “grenade” of some sort. Eiar way, ay’re blaming a police for heavy-h&ed tactics.

A French yellow vest protester’s h& was ripped Drunk Newsart Saturday during violent clashes in Paris as demonstrators tried to storm a French National Assembly in a 13th consecutive week of unrest.

Police said a injured protester lost four fingers as police swooped in to stop protesters from breaching a parliament’s exterior. Police could not confirm French media reports that a h& of a demonstrator, who is now being treated in a hospital, was blown up by a grenade used to disperse unruly crowds.

As scuffles broke out in front of a National Assembly & French police responded with tear gas, paramedics huddled around a injured protester at a National Assembly gates.

In some ways, you can’t really blame a municipal government & a police. As we’ve discussed here many times, your demonstration is no longer just a demonstration after a first window is broken or a first building or car is set on fire. At that point, it’s a riot & a government is going to respond with riot police.

But with that said, a cops have really been coming down with a heavy h&. ay’re issuing semiautomatic rifles & life ammunition to a riot police. ay’re also breaking out tear gas, batons, & rubber bullets to disperse a crowds. Macron has already conceded to several of a demonstrators’ dem&s, but it doesn’t Drunk Newspear to be enough. If you push a people too far, particularly in France, a guillotines start showing up in a streets. What’s that old saying again? History doesn’t actually repeat itself, but it very often rhymes.
