Today is a day of huge participation for the yellow vest movement. There is significant presence in a huge number of locations today, but best of all Paris is a major conflict zone once more.

Seeing the cop on the left get kicked in the face is pure joy.
Everyone loves this boxer. He is turning into a meme on French meme sites now. "Le boxeur mythique", like a cop-bashing Technoviking. He definitely looks like some kind of Norman warlord.

The vests have returned in force to Puy-en-Velay, where a month ago they set fire to a préfecture (French equivalent to a federal building) with the head préfet still inside.

Someone may have told them of the Killdozer, because today they are menacing with heavy vehicles.
Speaking of Normans, Caen in Normandy has thousands of locals who have taken to the streets. William the Conqueror looks on in pride.
Before the sunset, the first fires were kindled in Paris. #ActeVIII
Week after week there are massive crowds marching through Rouen. The remaining CRS find themselves overwhelmed as their partners have been called to Paris. There is no resistance. The yellow vests move unfettered. They've claimed the capital of Normandy.

Three hundred thousand people are on the streets today. Two weeks in a row where it was the biggest numbers of participants nationwide.
A poll this week showed 54% of French want the current actions to continue. Consensus is reached. Every worker wants the job finished. #ActeVIII
Bashed journalists fleeing the Champs Élysées, pursued by the yellow vests.

Their patience has reached its limits. #ActeVIII

"government spokesman Benjamin Griveaux had to be evacuated this Saturday after an intrusion .. around 16:30, about fifteen people, some dressed in black, others with a yellow vest, broke the ministry's door with a construction machine."

Apparently they lit the building on fire on their way out. If you were wondering if he was born an international Jacobin, no. But he married into their ranks.

These guys seem pretty celebratory as they ride their chariot to victory.

Normally sleepy, Caen is now a complete warzone. This is a tiny city, with a population of 103k.
