According to an anonymous BBC insider a new gagging order has been placed on coverage pertaining to the French Yellow Jackets movement (see below). This means that the powers that be are seriously concerned about the protests and are doing their utmost to prevent them spreading.
Note that the BBC insider claims that the government views the Yellow Jackets protests as a “threat to all European governments and are trying to prevent a ‘European Spring’ type situation”.
To this end the corporate media, including the BBC, are preparing pre-written stories in case an escalation of events forces them to cover the Yellow Jacket protests. If they are then forced to report on the protests the media have been instructed to link them with the “Far right” and the Front National.
Macron has gone further than any other French president in 40 years to court the hunting lobby and he is pushing through a raft of changes in favour of hunters, including reducing the price of national hunting permits and fixing a new system of monitoring species for hunting.
As the gilets jaunes protests hit rural areas, the hunting lobby remains one of Macron’s key links to the countryside and he has refused to give in to environmentalists who criticise his pro-hunting stance.

Something doesn't smell right about that photo. Firstly there are only around a few hundred there as you can quite clearly see the streets empty behind the main bunch? The front row of protesters have the centre of their t shirts purposely made out of focus? Thirdly why is the sign in French apart from stop, surely this, if in France for the french people, should be Arretez?

Hope the yellow vests are armed, and capable of defending themselves should TPTB decide to violently persecute them. If they haven't already, it'd be a good time to acquire weapons/training and get organized
I fully advocate defending oneself from government, especially when government is so clearly in the wrong.
They say they're a threat to the EU? I say good. Go on boys, we're all pulling for you. No matter what it takes, victory/domination over the enemy is all that matters.
