The Yellow Vests (Gilets Jaunes) movement of workers in France just completed its fifteenth weekend protest this past weekend. They are revolting against neoliberalism and austerity and rule by and for the wealthy. There are many similarities to the Yellow Vest movement and the Occupy Movement.
We speak with Lola Girerd, a post-doctoral student in Paris who is participating in and studying the Yellow Vests, about what the protests are like, what they are about and how the Macron government is responding to them.
We also discuss recent news, including mass climate actions, strikes and the US-led coup in Venezuela.
First aired on Popular Resistance.
