I was irritated by your suggestion that this is a kind of fascist 
movement. It is irritating because it is the typical reaction of 
academic leftists with little connection to the popular masses (with all 
their contradictions in consciouness).

You ask: "where is the class struggle in the "yellow vest" movement?"

Well, it is a) the classes involved (workers and poor middle class 
against the government of the bourgeoisie), b) it is the subject 
(protest against austerity attacks) and c) the struggle is pretty obvious.

Are there reactionary forces involved? As we say in the resolution, yes. 
Is this a reason to turn away from the movement? No! It is a reason to 
fight these forces INSIDE the movement.
