Reporting on the Yellow Vests

Since the end of last year, I have been writing a number of reports on the Gilets Jaunes, the anti-capitalist protest movement which has taken France by storm.

By talking to protesters, seeing what goes on, reading their leaflets and newsletters, I think have been able to gain a good understanding of the uprising, even though I have been geographically constrained to a relatively small area in the south.

Links to my reports, along with other articles, have been handily assembled on one page on the Winter Oak website.

My latest contribution was on the massive Gilets Jaunes protest in Montpellier on April 13 for Act 22 of this remarkable revolt.
