I used Google to find this latest Yellow Vest demonstration on RUPLY Russian news and there was nothing at You Tube about this demonstration, no matter how I did the search, nothing. But it is on You Tube today and the anger this weekend is even louder than last weekend. Macron has made it clear, he intends to crush this uprising. Leftists and statists marched in Paris last Sunday, demanding the Yellow Vests be crushed. So the anger this weekend is much, much greater than previous weekends.
All the people badly injured last weekend when the military attacked the demonstrators who were doing nothing bad when this happened, I watched it unfold—these victims of police state violence are now leading today’s mass demonstration, several are in wheelchairs, others on crutches.
For the first time, the communist/anarchists have joined and they march in unison with each other, NOT with the original Yellow Vests. They also are different: dressed in black like the police who pretended to be marchers last weekend.
The flew red and yellow flags and did the communist fist pumping. Over the last several weeks, I noticed and wrote about how leftists are beginning to drift into these demonstrations that began being totally patriotic and singing patriotic songs.
The mainstream media will of course, focus on the leftists joining these marches. Now, much earlier than all previous marches, at 9:30 EST in the US, the police are out in full military force and are now beginning to fight the archers. This is happening in a shopping district with shoppers all over the place now running for their lives as the military openly attacks everyone including shoppers.
A person dressed all in black lit this fire, a group of yellow vest demonstrators ran after him and ordered him to stop. I saw this last week: people in all black doing violent stuff some of whom were actually undercover agents who ran behind police lines when the demonstrators tried to stop them from starting fires.
a guitar playing man wearing symbolic bandages walked boldly up to the police line, singing about the yellow vests when a full scale, very violent attack resulted a minute later.
The police began shooting big tear gas canisters which the demonstrators had complained about after last weekend. This attack right when the guitar player reached the police line, became very, very violent. The RUPTLY camera crew had trouble keeping the camera under sontral and the violence escalated rapidly into a full blown riot.
By 10am EST, the protestors retreated only a short ways and then stood their ground as many rounds of tear gas were shot onlly the wing blew much of the tear gas away as it is a very windy day. Many police explosions as they use explosives to create terror and fear. It isn’t working, it simply made the protesters very angry.
The anti-Macron chants are now very loud and in unison and people are climbing over the monuments to victory in the square, they are standing their ground, waving French flags, both medieval and modern.
Here are some shots of where this battle is taking place:
The war zone is a huge plaza dedicated to the Spirit of REVOLT. It is the Republican Square! There is this huge statue of the goddess:
Part of this plaza is dedicated to this freedom fighter:
A woman who fought the Germans! HAHAHA. Indeed, here the demonstrators are standing their ground, they are highly aware of the meaning of this plaza.
Very fierce fighting right here in front of the Cafe Republique.
This police riot is happening at the BASTILLE!! The demonstrators are standing their ground knowing the importance of this particular site. This is why the demonstrators are standing their ground so ferociously despite all the power of the State focused on destroying them.
Blood in front of the monument to the Bastille Battle.
This riot is growing, the citizens are holding their ground, trying to make barriers, the violence is huge.
After 40 minutes of pitched battle, by 10:30, the French Citizens stood their ground and still occupy nearly the entire square dedicated to the heroes of the French Revolution. The demonstrators are very aware of the power of this site and the ability of Macron to hide this epic battle is impossible.
Word will get out despite the US media and BBC and French media to hide this battle. This is a historic moment in French history. I am in awe to be able to see it live, via Russian TV.
Will Macron order the massacre of French citizens waving French flags in Revolutionary Square? The police and military backed off a bit and when this happened, the demonstrators became peaceful again. The only time there is rioting is when the State attacks demonstrators.
Someone opened this container and tried to loot it but the demonstrators stopped this and began putting stuff BACK into the container and as they did this, the police attacked them and stopped them from saving the stuff in this container!
On the liberty monument, the demonstrators hung a huge banner: Act XII March Blanc.

When I search for news about this news event, it isn’t news except mainly in Russia.
The thin news coverage is deliberate. It isn’t fixed a few hours later, I noticed every week that the news about Paris or France nearly vanishes. The BBC has ceased reporting any news from Paris during the last few weeks. It is like France has vanished.
Big banner at Revolution Monument demanding Macron resign. It is evening in cold Paris and as soon as the police ceased attacking, the demonstrators stopped fighting and resumed chatting with each other and singing songs, etc. This is NOT a riot that is out of control, the only time there is violence, it is done by the paramilitary police.
It is now nightfall in Paris and the marchers are being totally defiant, continuing to sing and hold the Statue in Revolutionary Square. b 12:30 EST, it is night in Paris and the demonstrators are standing in the plaza, refusing to move as the paramilitary stands still, too.
They continue to chant and sing songs about Macron. The police are mobbing nearby hoping to attack again, I am supposing. Now, half an hour later, the paramilitary occupies half of the square. Fireworks break out, the crowd cheers.
