Gilets jaunes : de nombreux journalistes agressés dans plusieurs villes

Comrade Journalist Attacked by the Gilets Jaunes. 

As the Gilets Jaunes movement is in its death throes, they have turned on the media.

The Local reports.

Reporters Without Borders on Sunday called on those who speak for France’s “yellow vest” protesters to condemn numerous attacks and threats against journalists across the country during the latest round of anti-government demonstrations.

“A turning point has been reached,” Christophe Deloire, secretary-general of the Paris-based media rights watchdog, told the BFM television channel.

“We are facing a very serious situation which is threatening to get worse,” he said, after reporters were beaten, kicked and threatened with rape during Saturday’s rallies.

“We call on the spokespersons of the ‘Yellow Vests’ to solemnly condemn increasing violence against journalists during demonstrations,” he tweeted.

Threats of rape:

This is one of their acts, a journalist put in serious danger.


Here is the worst, which is described as an attempted lynching.

Those in the UK who wish to imitate this movement have made a serious error.

  1. So European socialists agree that the initiation of force is good. European National Socialists believe the same thing. So what’s the problem? And why are so many Checker Cab drivers involved in the affrays?

  2. I have no idea what a bleeding checker cab is mate!

    But we European socialists do not agree with violence against journalists, to say the bleeding least.

    These are your chums on the conspi far-right doing this.

  3. I truly fear for the future. In all my years of being a journo I’ve never ever seen so much anger towards politicians. If Brexit is reversed I believe we will see unrest like this country has not seen literally for centuries. Politicians and media people are seriously under-estimating the anger that will be unleashed at what will be seen as a betrayal not only of Brexiteers but democracy itself… and that will not end well. If you deny people their vote you push them towards violence as their last resort. I voted remain but the fact that politicians and their media allies cannot see what will unfold is frankly mind-boggling and terrifying.

  4. I watch BFM TV nearly every day. It is an excellent news channel available on the Web. Not as good as Channel 4 for international news it is great for coverage of events in France. It has given Macron a really hard time but the conspis of the Gilets Jaunes think it is against them.

    That said I am up for a battle on Brexit.
