I just can't stomach whole-hearted  support for false narratives, especially ones that perpetuate the very problems they claim to be trying to address.

I have to say something. To wink and nod and pretend to support a POV I know to be deeply flawed, is just not something I can do anymore.. I might not change anybody's mind, but as long as I have a voice here, I'll keep pointing out what I see as people's blind spots.

Document: Who are the Yellow Vests and what they want. Gilets Jaunes, qui sont et qu’ est-ce qu’ ils veulent
02/02/2019

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/GB1-Sg4jt7Y" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/GB1-Sg4jt7Y</a>

We publish below the French original version and then the English translation of the first document adopted on the 27th of January in Commercy, France by the “Assembly of the Assemblies of the Yellow Vests (Gilets Jaunes).
APPEL DE LA PREMIÈRE « ASSEMBLÉE DES ASSEMBLÉES » DES GILETS JAUNES

Nous, Gilets Jaunes des ronds-points, des parkings, des places, des assemblées, des manifs, nous sommes réunis ces 26 et 27 janvier 2019 en « Assemblée des assemblées », réunissant une centaine de délégations, répondant à l’appel des Gilets Jaunes de Commercy (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GB1-Sg4jt7Y&t=14s).

Depuis le 17 novembre, du plus petit village, du monde rural à la plus grande ville, nous nous sommes soulevés contre cette société profondément violente, injuste et insupportable. Nous ne nous laisserons plus faire ! Nous nous révoltons contre la vie chère, la précarité et la misère. Nous voulons, pour nos proches, nos familles et nos enfants, vivre dans la dignité. 26 milliardaires possèdent autant que la moitié de l’humanité, c’est inacceptable. Partageons la richesse et pas la misère ! Finissons-en avec les inégalités sociales ! Nous exigeons l’augmentation immédiate des salaires, des minimas sociaux, des allocations et des pensions, le droit inconditionnel au logement et à la santé, à l’éducation, des services publics gratuits et pour tous.

C’est pour tous ces droits que nous occupons quotidiennement des ronds-points, que nous organisons des actions, des manifestations et que nous débattons partout. Avec nos gilets jaunes, nous reprenons la parole, nous qui ne l’avons jamais.

Et quelle est la réponse du gouvernement ? La répression, le mépris, le dénigrement. Des morts et des milliers de blessés, l’utilisation massive d’armes par tirs tendus qui mutilent, éborgnent, blessent et traumatisent. Plus de 1000 personnes ont été arbitrairement condamnées et emprisonnées. Et maintenant la nouvelle loi dite « anti-casseur » vise tout simplement à nous empêcher de manifester. Nous condamnons toutes les violences contre les manifestants qu’elles viennent des forces de l’ordre ou des groupuscules violents. Rien de tout cela ne nous arrêtera ! Manifester est un droit fondamental. Fin de l’impunité pour les forces de l’ordre ! Amnistie pour toutes les victimes de la répression !

Et quelle entourloupe que ce grand débat national qui est en fait une campagne de communication du gouvernement, qui instrumentalise nos volontés de débattre et décider ! La vraie démocratie, nous la pratiquons dans nos assemblées, sur nos ronds-points, elle n’est ni sur les plateaux télé ni dans les pseudos tables rondes organisées par Macron.

Après nous avoir insultés et traités de moins que rien, voilà maintenant qu’il nous présente comme une foule haineuse fascisante et xénophobe. Mais nous, nous sommes tout le contraire : ni raciste, ni sexiste, ni homophobe, nous sommes fiers d’être ensemble avec nos différences pour construire une société solidaire.

Nous sommes forts de la diversité de nos discussions, en ce moment même des centaines d’assemblées élaborent et proposent leurs propres revendications. Elles touchent à la démocratie réelle, à la justice sociale et fiscale, aux conditions de travail, à la justice écologique et climatique, à la fin des discriminations. Parmi les revendications et propositions stratégiques les plus débattues, nous trouvons : l’éradication de la misère sous toutes ses formes, la transformation des institutions (RIC, constituante, fin des privilèges des élus…), la transition écologique (précarité énergétique, pollutions industrielles…), l’égalité et la prise en compte de toutes et tous quelle que soit sa nationalité (personnes en situation de handicap, égalité hommes-femmes, fin de l’abandon des quartiers populaires, du monde rural et des outres-mers…).

Nous, Gilets Jaunes, invitons chacun avec ses moyens, à sa mesure, à nous rejoindre. Nous appelons à poursuivre les actes (acte 12 contre les violences policières devant les commissariats, actes 13, 14…), à continuer les occupations des ronds-points et le blocage de l’économie, à construire une grève massive et reconductible à partir du 5 février. Nous appelons à former des comités sur les lieux de travail, d’études et partout ailleurs pour que cette grève puisse être construite à la base par les grévistes eux-mêmes. Prenons nos affaires en main ! Ne restez pas seuls, rejoignez-nous !

Organisons-nous de façon démocratique, autonome et indépendante ! Cette assemblée des assemblées est une étape importante qui nous permet de discuter de nos revendications et de nos moyens d’actions. Fédérons-nous pour transformer la société !

Nous proposons à l’ensemble des Gilets Jaunes de faire circuler cet appel.  Si, en tant que groupe gilets jaunes, il vous convient, envoyez votre signature à Commercy ( assembleedesassemblees@gmail.com). N’hésitez pas à discuter et formuler des propositions pour les prochaines « Assemblées des assemblées », que nous préparons d’ores et déjà.

Macron Démission ! Vive le pouvoir au peuple, pour le peuple et par le peuple.

Appel proposé par l’Assemblée des Assemblées de Commercy. Il sera ensuite proposé pour adoption dans chacune des assemblées locales.

Translated from French by Prof. William Mallinson
CALL FOR THE FIRST “ASSEMBLY OF THE ASSEMBLIES” OF THE YELLOW VESTS

We, the Yellow Vests of roundabouts,  car parks, squares, assemblies and demonstrations, have  gathered this 26 and 27 January 2019 in an ‘assembly of the assemblies’, uniting a hundred delegations, responding to the Call Of The Yellow Vests of Commercy (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GB1-Sg4jt7Y&t=14s).

Libya - destroyed by France and NATO. Demonstration against slavery

Since 17 November, from the smallest village, from the rural world to the largest city, we have risen up against this deeply violent, unjust and unbearable society. We won’t let it happen again! We revolt against high cost of living, insecurity and poverty. We want our loved ones, our families and our children to live in dignity. 26 billionaires own as much as half of humanity. That is unacceptable. Let us share the wealth, and not poverty! Let us put an end to social inequality! We demand the immediate increase in salaries, welfare benefits, allowances and pensions, and the unconditional right to housing and health, education, free public services, for all

It is for all these rights that we occupy roundabouts every day, that we organise actions and demonstrations, and that we debate everywhere. With our yellow vests, we are taking the floor, we who never have it.

And what is the government’s response? Repression, contempt, denigration; deaths and thousands of wounded, the massive use of firearms that mutilate, blind, injure and traumatise. More than 1,000 people have been arbitrarily sentenced and imprisoned. And now the new so-called “anti-hooligan” law aims simply to prevent us from demonstrating. We condemn all violence against demonstrators, whether it comes from the forces of law and order or from violent groups. None of this will stop us! Protesting is a fundamental right. End the impunity of the forces of law and order. Declare an amnesty for all victims of repression!

And what a dirty trick this great national debate is, which is in fact a government public relations campaign, which exploitsour will to debate and decide! We practice true democracy in our assemblies and on our roundabouts, not on the TV or at the pseudo- round tables organised by Macron.

After insulting us and treating us to less than nothing, he is now presenting us as a Fascist and xenophobic hate mob. But we are quite the opposite: neither racist, nor sexist, nor homophobic, we are proud to be together, with our differences, to build a supportive society.

US Troops Set Up New Base in Syria’s Manbij, Despite Turkey Threatening to Attack City

We are strong in the diversity of our discussions; at this very moment hundreds of assemblies are elaborating and proposing their own demands. They concern real democracy, social and fiscal justice, working conditions, environmental and climate justice, and the end of discrimination. Among the most debated strategic demands and proposals, we find: the eradication of poverty in all its forms, the transformation of institutions (referenda, end of the privileges of elected officials…), ecological transition (fuel poverty, industrial pollution…), equality and the inclusion of all people regardless of their nationality (the disabled, equality between men and women, an end to the abandonment of working-class neighbourhoods, the rural world and the overseas territories)…).

We, Yellow Vests, invite everyone, according to his means and capacities, to join us. We call for laws to be respected and executed (12 against police violence in police stations, Act 13, 14…), the continuation of the occupation of roundabouts and the blockade of the economy, a massive strike and repeating from 5 February. We call for the formation of committees in the workplace, in educational institutions, and everywhere else, so that this strike can be built from the bottom up by the strikers themselves. Let’s get matters in hand! Don’t be alone, join us!

Let us organise ourselves democratically, autonomously and independently! This assembly of assemblies is an important step that allows us to discuss our demands and our means of action. Let us unite to transform society!

We propose that all Yellow Vests circulate this call. If, as a group, you agree, send your signature to Commercy (assembleedesassemblees@gmail.com). Do not hesitate to discuss and formulate proposals for the next “Assembly of the Assemblies”, which we are already preparing.

Macron must resign! Long live the power of the people, for the people and by the people!

Call proposed by the Assembly of the Assemblies of Commercy.

It will then be proposed for adoption by each of the local assemblies.

I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why you’re here. You’re here because you know something. What you know you can’t explain, but you feel it. You’ve felt it your entire life, that there’s something wrong with the world.
You don’t know what it is but its there, like a splinter in your mind

Yah. :icon_scratch: That needs more contemplation, evaluation... and this would be a good time to hear from the curmudgeons.

Cant believe I am saying that. I could use some edumication that involves self serving arguments  :coffee:

By the way, mad props to those sharing this. https://medium.com/insurge-intelligence/venezuelas-collapse-is-a-window-into-how-the-oil-age-will-unravel-f80aadff7786

I'll be using it next episode of C5 defines the adapters movement.

MrsC5 also sent this to me for evaluation. Canadian Government, Oil industry security mercenary, collusion. https://www.eiseverywhere.com/ehome/347740/Program/?fbclid=IwAR2l3ypv6wvkxGT10c8ofgr3yy5hXijpGY2zVEdWndUWRetuGUCEXtAo7ZU

The article on Venezuela was both in depth and well reasoned. The collapse of Venezuela was both a product of U.S.of A medleing and corrupt, stupid governments both neo-liberal and socialist. Throw those two items into a complex oil market where Venezuela has not adequately maintained or upgraded its oil infrastructure AND most importantly has oil with a terrible EROEI, collapse of the system seems almost guaranteed. But of course it didn't help Chavez/Maduro that the U.S. is trying its utmost to collapse the country to STEAL the oil reserves for U.S. companies. But that evil is to be expected.  :evil4: Pity the poor people of Venezuela because now climate change is screwing them too.

Don't know what to make of the meeting between security and the Canadian gov, oil industry. It looks real scary as the conference has a major focus on ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVISTS and how they may disrupt the industry (both from inside and outside). And how come the U.S. Dept of Homeland Security and the TSA are advising these people??

It will be interesting to see what C-5 says about all this.

The Koch Bros own the tar sands. And Canadian politicians are whores too, not just US politicians.

I didn't read the linked piece. I'll read it now and see if either of those two things might be pertinent to the discussion. I'm guessing they both might be.

The ruling conservatives prior to Chavez in Venezuela were typical of the kind of local collaborators who make the colonial model of throwing people off the land and extracting whatever resources the "colony" has in pursuit of making guys back in the Empire rich. They were, and still are, more than willing to let the poor people starve while they live in their gated enclaves. If Maduro is outed, they return to power.

Maybe part of the problem is related to low EROEI oil, but more of it is related to just not giving a shit about the Indios who live in the jungle and the ghetto people the ruling elites employ as domestics. If there was enough to go around, they still wouldn't be willing to share it. Just sayin. Mexico is much the same, or was until very recently.

On the pipeline link, see my last comment, above.

I nailed it by telepathic means before I read a word........or, nothing ever changes, and human behavior is predictable.

Choose one.

Aren't most Canadians offended by the concept that they are just our colony to the north? Isn't that what the USA government being involved in this implies. Why aren't their howls of protest from Canadians? (just rhetorical questions really ;)). Canadian citizens and USA citizens are just pawns in the global capitalist adventure. Hence the hegemony of this conference does really make sense. AND it is scary that it is so blatant.

oh we are it's just... Canadian protest. Passive aggressive and quiet. Weve built an export driven market and fostered closer ties for 40 years that makes for a US focused policy politically. Trump has been a wake up call. Dont get me wrong I understand he is a symptom of collapse not a force but generally he has REALLY pissed off my peers. . How its playing out In my immediate circle I have 3 couples choosing Mexico and Cuba over Florida. My mom is putting her Florida winter place on the market. I've made sure all my money is out of US investments and reach, and it is a regular dinner conversation when I'm out with friends in ways it never has been. If you were to quiz where younger people want to spend the winter in retirement the move is away from the Traditional spots of Florida and Arizona. I remember reading about Finland during the second world war squeezed between the nazi regime they disliked and the Russians who were actively trying to take them over by force. Adjust for time and location and that is the dilemma The US and China are playing empire games and we have to ride the waves... then there is the fact we are an oil exporting nation, we pump 3 times more then we use and that pays the Bill's for all the nicey nice bennies we all like so much...Myself included to be fair.
Best I got, cheers

Everyone in the western world has benefited and continues to benefit from abundant cheap oil. Not sure guilt is the appropriate response though. Almost anyone int the third world would gladly trade places, no questions asked.

Well stated Canadian POV. Thanks for weighing in.

Consider St. John or Virgin Gorda for the winter vacation...just not at the height of the season. Or Culebra, which is part of PR.

Yes. I will be adding this quote into my next article in the bonus reads section.

"We have found ourselves screaming at CBC radio lately, at the last round of weapons of mass distraction propaganda. We have to bring freedom and democracy to Iraq, er... Libya, er... Ukraine, er.... Syria, er....., Nicaragua, er.... Hang on. Its on the tip of my tongue.... Venezuela. Then we can bring democracy and freedom to Cuba, Iran.... and the illegitimate, socialist dictatorship, Canada. Haven't you heard about the humanitarian crisis in Alberta. Oil sands workers are fleeing the Provence in fear for their lives. Those that remain are starving, forming gangs to scavenge the ruins for bits of food in the trash. Russia and China have been meddling in in their elections. The US and its allies recognize Rob Ford as the legitimate president of Canada after putting sanctions on maple syrup producers and marijuana drug cartels . All options are on the table and they are moving troops into Montana to.... bring in humanitarian aid and arm moderate rebels. Mr and MrsC5 are being held on an extradition request from the US for spreading Fake News."

Excerpt:

     What happened in the 1980s, there was a whole series of congressional investigations, exposés, whistle blowers, et cetera, about the illegal activities of the CIA. Assassinations of people like Pinochet in Chile, the coup d’état against Mosaddegh in Iran, in Guatemala, Árbenz and so forth. As damage control, Reagan’s head of CIA, and Will Casey, proposed a privatization of this regime change machine instead of using CIA agents on the street in civilian clothes who can be discovered and then revealed as a government operation. He said, “Let’s do it through private NGOs, non-governmental organizations,” and then if they’re caught in some attempt in some country, we can always say, “Oh, that’s private. We can’t control what private foundations do. They want human rights, liberty, democracy.” You allow them to work in your country. We have no … Et cetera.

That was actually at the beginning of brilliant and very effective way to get rid of regimes that Washington didn’t like.
...the idea of Manifest Destiny and the book is really about how this machinery of fake democracy has been created. Fake human rights. NGOs like Open Society Foundation, the National Endowment for Democracy, which is US government, financed CIA controlled NGO, but it masquerades as a private freedom will have an enterprise...

 I’m convinced that the Yellow Vest movement is organic and real and this is what has Macron and his bankers, the bankers in Paris and Brussels and at first they didn’t … They thought it would go away. They tried, he tried to ignore it. He didn’t make any public statements and then people came in from the countryside, even Germany and go off into two or three hours drive to France and you see that the standard of living has deteriorated steadily over the past years, the past couple of decades, and people kind of live a great life. It used to be to go to France and so there was a lot of fear people were happy and enjoyed good food and wonderful wine and fellowship and friendship and that you don’t see. People that are struggling to pay the rent or to own a house to simply feed their family and the taxes go up and the benefits go down. It’s just horrendous....

It’s not about gasoline tax. It took on an organic dimension. People said we’re sick of the 1% destroying that 99% of the population. We’re sick of these policies. We want France back again. We don’t want France to be a suburb of Africa. We want to be France to be France with its own history, culture, pride and tradition and its own economy instead of this globalization nonsense. So I think that’s kind of what’s going on here. You see what I’ve seen videos of this. What Macron has ordered is that the French intelligence insert, provocateurs police, you even see in films, they go behind their van and start changing into civilian uniform and put on the yellow vest and then start throwing rocks to incite violence and so forth. And then the yellow vest discover this and they say, “Police, police. Look at that police agent, and they run away.

So to see this and of course, what the mainstream media films are scenes of violence and you think these are nothing but hooligans and an attic fire, the US terrorists and so forth they’re not … But this is genuine. And it’s got the powers to be freaked out I think. ...
