Yellow Vest Protesters to Withdraw All Their Euros in Massive Run on French Banks

  • For the record, I do not advocate a run on the banks. We need to let things settle a bit to see what/who is behind this ‘bank run’ effort. The sheeple may be suckered into another Illuminist scam to introduce legislation for a cashless society. Ie. no form of cash withdrawal will be allowed and it will all be electronic and kept in banks.
  • Yellow Vest Protesters to Withdraw All Their Euros in Massive Run on French Banks

    Furious yellow vests are preparing to withdraw all their euros in a massive run on French banks, as the violent protests spill over to Britain.

    Yellow vest activists are urging French citizens to empty their bank accounts and spark a massive run on the country’s banks in their longstanding fight with the government — which could lead to the collapse of its banking system. The call for citizens to withdraw all their euros come as copycat protests are planned for Britain on the weekend.

    The left-wing “People’s Assembly” activist group has invited thousands of people to wear yellow vests at an anti-austerity “Britain is broken” march in central London this weekend. “See you on the streets and don’t forget your #YellowVests,” the group, which is demanding a general election to end the ruling Conservatives’ program of austerity, wrote on Facebook.

    Meanwhile right-wing, Brexit-supporting activists have signalled their intent to hold demonstrations in British cities, including the capital, under the banner “#YellowVestUK”. This comes ahead of the ninth straight weekend of protests across France, with yellow vests now issuing calls on social media for massive cash withdrawals from banks.

    Protesters hope the move will force the government to listen to their demands, notably their call for more direct democracy through the implementation of popular votes that allow citizens to propose new laws. Activist Maxime Nicolle called it the “tax collector’s referendum.” In a video message, Nicolle said “we are going to get our bread back … You’re making money with our dough, and we’re fed up.”
