Thousands of furious French protesters took to the streets of Paris for the 13th Saturday in a row as part of the ‘Gilets Jaunes’ or ‘Yellow Vests’ protests last week. During the latest episode of weekly protests in Paris, police clashed with protestors, denouncing mandatory national vaccination and the French health pass. France has been rocked by weeks of strikes, protests, blockades, fuel shortages, and sporadic street violence. The majority of Yellow Vest protestors in Paris appeared to be from the impoverished French working class, infuriated by economic stagnation exacerbated by Macron’s anti-COVID-19 policies. Wearing the group’s popular fluorescent safety vests, the protestors expressed their vehement opposition that citizens need to acquire a Health Pass to access certain establishments. Activists in France’s Yellow Vest movement have been protesting the country’s aggravated social inequities. Furthermore, the French social activists accuse the Macron administration of employing coercive tactics against individuals who believe the COVID-19 pandemic’s sanitary protocols violate their personal rights. The massive demonstrations in Paris erupted after French President Emmanuel Macron announced a series of new COVID-19 social restrictions on July 12. Beginning in August, specific permissions are needed to access French restaurants, bars, and other public places, as well as long-distance trains, only if the individual is COVID-19 negative or has been immunised against the virus. French citizens have been demonstrating every Saturday since mid-July in opposition to Macron’s draconian social policies. The ‘Yellow Vest’ movement emerged in 2018 following a series of gatherings over increasing fuel prices. In recent months, the movement has developed into a full-fledged anti-capitalist movement, with protests rapidly escalating into violent clashes between activists and cruel French police. Last month, French Prime Minister Jean Castex said that his administration is drafting legislation to strengthen the country’s mandatory Health Pass programme. According to the French daily ‘Le Parisien,’ French legislators will propose a new measure extending the pass requirement on October 13. Castex responded to the decision by stating that, although it may seem irrational to extend health pass laws at a time when countries are easing social restrictions, individuals should carry their permits with them while touring certain places. Meanwhile, according to Reuters, French government spokesman Benjamin Griveaux desperately admitted that his government is considering declaring a state of emergency to prevent a recurrence of the country’s worst social upheaval in almost a decade and implored protestors to come to the negotiating table. According to observers, the Yellow Vest movement in France has morphed into an anti-Zionist movement, as rallies against the wars in Gaza and Yemen have become a battlefield for French citizens to criticise Macron’s pro-Israel views.
