Yellow Vests Continue - But Increasingly Infiltrated by Violent Leftists

Yellow Vests protests against President Emmanuel Macron’s globalist economic policies hit France for the 44th weekend in a row. Things got especially heated in Nantes in north-western France. Clashes between police and exclusively ethnic-European protesters left several people injured.

Some 1,800 people took to the streets of the city on Saturday, September 14, according to police figures (usually half the actual numbers). This week, the Yellow Vests tried a different approach to the protests, avoiding the city’s center and hitting different routes instead.


At some point, White working class protesters engaged in scuffles with law enforcement officers. The police blatantly used tear gas to disperse the crowds of infuriated workers. Footage from the scene shows. Water cannons were also deployed.

Although most of the ethno-nationalist French workers marched peacefully, there were around 400 people from the so-called ‘black block’ attacking and damaging various venues, including a local McDonald’s, smashing bus stops and setting dumpsters on fire. At least two protesters and four police cops were injured in the scuffles.

Tension is high and the French workers are deadly serious. Ahead of the rally, the police seized an entire crate of Molotov cocktails. These bottles, filled with kerosene or similar inflammatory, can be lethal.

During Finland’s Winter War with the Western-backed Stalinist regime (1939), the farmer Finns used Molotov cocktails to rout the Red Army. Despite the David and Goliath comparison the gallant Finns, who were soon to join the Reich armies, sent the Bolsheviks back to Moscow within a few months. Hence the homemade weapon’s name.


Also seized were firecrackers and a haul of around one hundred umbrellas. These come in handy to hide from water cannons and tear gas canisters.

In fact, even minor things get one in trouble during the protests. One man was detained by police merely for carrying a tennis racket. During protests, such sports implements are known to be used as slingshots to hurl tear gas grenades back at police.


Anti-globalist workers protests were also held in other major cities across France. In Lyon, the gathering was also marred by scuffles with the police, that deployed tear gas to disperse the protesters. In Toulouse, the yellow vests occupied a train station, getting onto the tracks in an attempt to disrupt the railroad.

Laws control the lesser man, right the freer man
