This YouTube video is a must see! The most inspirational thing I've seen in decades!
In this video, the protestors call for a general strike—not just a one-day strike—but an ongoing general strike until they can end racism, sexism, police brutality, and capitalism! At one point, they force the police to step aside and let them through to join the climate march and they are totally non-violent in their protest. —Bonnie Weinstein

Yellow Vests Shift to the Left
The yellow vests movement in France is now shifting decisively to the left, as shown by the huge anti-capitalist bloc in Paris on the December 8. Led by prominent campaigners against police violence, The Adama Committee for Justice and Truth, it included railworkers, striking postal workers, other rank and file workers, students, migrant workers groups, important collectives such as The Rosa Parks Collective, sex workers, LGBTQ groups and many more. The mood has changed completely since the horrific mass arrest at a school in a Paris banlieue; now workers are calling for a general strike, and the student movement is exploding with schools and universities blockaded throughout the country.
