Yellow vests protest in Paris against French government

The protest was called by the New Popular Ecological and Social Union (Nupes) bloc, however, more than 80 political and union organizations had confirmed their participation earlier this week.

The demonstrators denounce the loss of purchasing power in the face of rising inflation that has caused a dizzying increase in the prices of electricity, food, fuel and services in general.

Une autre vie est possible, débarrassée du pillage du profit. One other world is possible, I freed the saccage of capitalist productivism.

In this regard, the head of La France Insumisa (LFI), Jean-Luc Mélenchon, stated that “if you are in difficulty or in misery, it is exclusively because the correlation of forces between those who have everything and those who have little, it is in favor of those who have everything.”

In this sense, he stressed that “another life is possible, free from the spoils of profit. Another world is possible, free from the frenzy of capitalist productivism. With what we are doing today, we are designing a new Popular Front”.

In turn, Mélenchon stressed that “employers believed that they could play with rot and oppose each other. What is more important is the unity of the people themselves who do not allow themselves to be divided by their skin color, religion, political affiliation or indifference.”

For their part, there have been clashes between protesters and police officers when the latter burst into the protest with tear gas to try to disperse the massive concentration.
