Bastille Day - July 14 1789 - La Marseillaise
« on: July 11, 2010, 11:32:00 pm »
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bastille_Day



Bastille Day is the French national holiday which is celebrated on 14 July each year. In France, it is formally called La Fête Nationale (National Celebration) and commonly le quatorze juillet (the fourteenth of July). It commemorates the 1790 Fête de la Fédération, held on the first anniversary of the storming of the Bastille on 14 July 1789; the anniversary of the storming of the Bastille fortress-prison was seen as a symbol of the uprising of the modern nation, and of the reconciliation of all the French inside the constitutional monarchy which preceded the First Republic, during the French Revolution. Festivities are held on the morning of 14 July, on the Champs-Élysées avenue in Paris in front of the President of the Republic.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/La_Marseillaise

La Marseillaise" was screamed during the levée en masse and met with huge success
 
The Convention accepted it as the French national anthem in a decree passed on 14 July 1795, making it France's first; but it was then banned successively by Napoleon I, Louis XVIII, and Napoleon III, only being reinstated briefly after the July Revolution of 1830.[1]

During Napoleon I's reign Veillons au Salut de l'Empire was the unofficial anthem of the regime and during Napoleon III's reign Partant pour la Syrie.

During the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries "La Marseillaise" was recognised as the anthem of the international revolutionary movement and in 1871, it was adopted by the Paris Commune. Eight years later in 1879, it was restored as France's national anthem, and has remained so ever since.

La Marseillaise

French National Anthem
La Marseillaise was composed by Claude-Joseph Rouget de Lisle in 1792 and was declared the French national anthem in 1795.

Let's go children of the fatherland,
The day of glory has arrived!
Against us tyranny's
Bloody flag is raised! (repeat)

In the countryside, do you hear
The roaring of these fierce soldiers?
They come right to our arms
To slit the throats of our sons, our friends!

Refrain

Grab your weapons, citizens!
Form your batallions!
Let us march! Let us march!
May impure blood
Water our fields!
 
(The four stanzas between ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ are no longer sung today.)
 
~ ~ ~ ~ ~

This horde of slaves, traitors, plotting kings,
What do they want?

For whom these vile shackles,
These long-prepared irons? (repeat)
Frenchmen, for us, oh! what an insult!
What emotions that must excite!
It is us that they dare to consider
Returning to ancient slavery!


What! These foreign troops
Would make laws in our home!
What! These mercenary phalanxes
Would bring down our proud warriors! (repeat)
Good Lord! By chained hands
Our brows would bend beneath the yoke!
Vile despots would become The masters of our fate!

Tremble, tyrants! and you, traitors,
The disgrace of all groups,
Tremble! Your parricidal plans
Will finally pay the price! (repeat)
Everyone is a soldier to fight you,
If they fall, our young heros,
France will make more,  Ready to battle you!


Frenchmen, as magnanimous warriors,
Bear or hold back your blows!
Spare these sad victims,
Regretfully arming against us. (repeat)
But not these bloodthirsty despots,
But not these accomplices of Bouillé,
All of these animals who, without pity,
Tear their mother's breast to pieces!


~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Sacred love of France,
Lead, support our avenging arms!
Liberty, beloved Liberty,
Fight with your defenders! (repeat)
Under our flags, let victory
Hasten to your manly tones!
May your dying enemies
See your triumph and our glory!

Refrain

We will enter the pit
When our elders are no longer there;
There, we will find their dust
And the traces of their virtues.
(repeat)
Much less eager to outlive them
Than to share their casket,
We will have the sublime pride
Of avenging them or following them!


Refrain
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

Not everyone has the luxury to zip over to France for Bastille Day on July 14, but that doesn't mean you can't celebrate their version of an independence day right from your home town. Check out these top ways to honor Bastille Day close to home:

Visit a local Alliance Francaise
These are wonderful resources, and you can almost be certain your local alliance has Bastille Day festivities planned. For instance, the San Francisco alliance is hosting a "curbside bistro" featuring food and wine. Go to this map and click on your state to find the nearest alliance.

Bastille Day, bourbon and Woody Guthrie: This week’s Nightlife Agenda
By Fritz Hahn, David Malitz and Rhome Anderson

Tuesday and Saturday: When making a list of American songwriting titans of the past century, Woody Guthrie has to be near the top. His legacy as an outspoken champion of the country’s working class is unparalleled, and how many songs are as iconic as “This Land Is Your Land”? July 14 would have been Guthrie’s 100th birthday, and there are a pair of local celebrations in his honor.

At Hill Country on Tuesday, Guthrie’s granddaughter Sarah Lee Guthrie and her husband and collaborator, Johnny Irion, who have established themselves as a formidable country-rock duo of their own, will pay tribute. And on Saturday, local folk-rocker Joe Uehlein & the U-Liners head up a tribute show at the Takoma Park Community Center.
...
Saturday: Washington’s Francophone and Francophile communities party hard on Bastille Day, whether with live music and gastronomic delights at the French Embassy or dancing on the bar in the wee hours at Bistrot du Coin. One of the most spirited events is the annual party at L’Enfant Cafe in Adams Morgan, which manages to shut down a block of Vernon Street for an afternoon of insanity. (Thankfully, no one loses his or her head.) There’s a French maid race, which requires competitors to don a black-and-white dress and race to fill a glass with spoonfuls of champagne; can-can dancers perform; airlines give away tickets to Paris; and beer and food trucks offer refreshments while “Marie Antoinette” and “Louis XIV” look on. DJs provide party tunes all day, but this year’s star attraction is an appearance by Deee-Lite’s Lady Miss Kier.
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

Ya know, the shaky beginning of our republic and its future owes France and its people more than most people will ever know. I say, HE77 YEA! to French fries.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1EvBll8L4Hg

This to me is the most moving example of La Marseillaise and is a poke in the eye to TPTB.

VIVA LA LIBERTE !

If a man were to know at the end of this days business there would come. But, it suffices to know that that the day will end and the end  be known.
If we meet again well then we’ll smile and if not, well then this parting was well made.

A great thread on La Marseillaise and Bastille Day.

This is my favourite version, at the Invalides in the presence of former President Jacques Chirac 14 July 2005.
Quite solemn with the French Army Choir, Fanfare, and Orchestra. A man with a voice.

My favourite part: Amour sacré de la patrie...

Sacred love of France,
Lead, support our avenging arms!

Fight with your defenders! (repeat)
Under our flags, let victory
Hasten to your manly tones!
May your dying enemies
See your triumph and our glory!

Without the help from the French, we would not have a country. The ideals were the same. We did not have embedded royalty.  Today we do?



The French Revolution (History Channel) (2005)


On July 14, 1789, a mob of angry Parisians stormed the Bastille and seized the King's military stores. A decade of idealism, war, murder, and carnage followed, bringing about the end of feudalism and the rise of equality and a new world order. The French Revolution is a definitive feature-length documentary that encapsulates this heady (and often headless) period in Western civilization. With dramatic reenactments, illustrations, and paintings from the era, plus revealing accounts from journals and expert commentary from historians, The French Revolution vividly unfurls in a maelstrom of violence, discontent, and fundamental change. King Louis XVI, Marie Antoinette, Maximilien Robespierre, and Napoleon Bonaparte lead a cast of thousands in this essential program from THE HISTORY CHANNEL®. Narrated by Edward Herrmann (The Aviator, Gilmore Girls), The French Revolution explores the legacy that--now more than ever--stands as both a warning and a guidepost to a new millennium
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

Celebrate Bastille Day with Bordeaux
By The Bordeaux Wine Council
Published: Tuesday, Jul. 10, 2012

NEW YORK, July 10, 2012 -- /PRNewswire/ -- The Bordeaux Wine Council (CIVB) invites Americans to celebrate Bastille Day, La Fete Nationale, with the rest of France this July 14, 2012.

Realizing that Americans who are eager to continue their Independence Day celebrations by celebrating France's conception of democracy and the republic may be perplexed about how to throw a proper Bastille Day celebration during a heat wave, the Bordeaux Wine Council has some easy solutions.

Megan Wiig, one of Bordeaux's U.S. Wine Buffs and author of Postcards from France explains why celebrating Bastille Day is easier than you think. "Many casual wine drinkers aren't aware that Bordeaux, France's historic wine region famous for bold, high-end red wines, also makes affordable and crowd-pleasing white and rose wines that are perfect for summer entertaining."

The conspiracy theory of the French Revolution holds that it was a plot by Illuminati-style secret societies run out of Germany and England.  See "Secrecy or Freedom, the War on Political Dissimulation" by Alan B. Jones.  Definitely not the 'popular' conception of this historic event.

I realize that the French revolution was pushed along by groups bent on eliminating the royalties. Elements of the Illuminati played crucial roles along with house of Rothschild. Notice that The British monarchy and dutch Q Beatrix and Spanish  are nearly the last standing.

Some links :

Anti conspiracy:


http://freemasonry.bcy.ca/texts/robison-barruel.html

Preamble
John Robison’s and the Abbé Barruel's attempts to prove a causal link between the Bavarian Illuminati, French Freemasonry and the French Revolution are constructed of errors and falsehoods. The key link is the visit of Bode and von Busche to Paris in 1787, a visit too short and limited to have caused the French Revolution. Although Robison and Barruel are discredited, [1]. many contemporary anti-masonic writers continue to quote from their books.  

...

Conclusion  
Barruel and Robison fail to provide any conclusive link between the Bavarian Illuminati and French Freemasonry, much less find a cause of the Revolution in Paris lodges. They display a great ignorance of the actual and documented workings of Freemasonry at the time, and, in support of their arguments, have made many demonstrably false statements.  

Although both Barruel's and Robison's claims have been discredited, many, more contemporary, writers who rely on their books are still accepted as authorities.  

Although the list of freemasons who espoused liberty and equality, republicanism and constitutional monarchy, is a long one (Jacques Millanois, Pierre Marie Bruyset, Jean Andre Perisse du Luc, the Chevalier Gaspard de Savaron, and the Compte Henry de Virieu, to name a few), there is no documentation to suggest that the Lodges or Grand Lodges in France took any active role in politics. Many freemasons (such as Adrien Nicolas, Deleutre, Louis Daniel Tassin, and the Abbé Bartolio) were active in maintaining civil order during the riots. Many freemasons were sent to the guillotine or were massacred by the mobs; most Lodges ceased meeting during the Revolutionary period.  
Postscript  

Another claim, by the Jesuit periodical "Etudes" in 1940, that the Illuminati sent the Comte Kalowait to Paris in 1782, and Falgera in 1784, is equally specious. Neither Weishaupt nor Knigge trusted the Compte who was attracted to the occult studies which the Illuminati leaders held in abhorrence, while Falgera was a novice with no authority or standing in the Order.

Masonic Traitors, Treason, and Treachery:
The French Revolution, Jacobins and Jacobites

The French Revolution  By Jim Marrs

If one desires to point to a major world event proven to have been inspired by secret society machinations, one need look no further than the French Revolution, which devastated that nation between 1787 and 1799. Revolutionary leaders, in seeking to overthrow the decadent monarchy of King Louis XVI, launched the first national revolution of modern times.

Although popularly believed to have begun due to a public uprising over lack of food and government representation, the record is quite clear that the revolution was instigated by cells of French Masonry and the German Illuminati.

The New Encyclopedia Britannica tells us that in France there arose a political system and a philosophical outlook that no longer took Christianity for granted, that in fact explicitly opposed it... The brotherhood taught by such groups as the Freemasons, members of secret fraternal societies, and the Illuminati, a rationalist secret society, provided a rival to the Catholic sense of community."

Secret society researcher and author Nesta H. Webster was even more pointed, writing in 1924, "[The Masonic book A Ritual and Illustrations of Freemasonry] contains the following passage, 'The Masons... originated the Revolution with the infamous Duke of Orleans at their head.'"

Author Bramley wrote, "During the first French Revolution, a key rebel leader was the Duke of Orleans, who was grand master of French Masonry before his resignation at the height of the Revolution. Marquis de Lafayette, the man who had been initiated into the Masonic fraternity by George Washington, also played an important role in the French revolutionary cause. The Jacobin Club, which was the radical nucleus of the French revolutionary movement, was founded by prominent Freemasons."

It was the Duke of Orleans, grand master of the Grand Orient Lodge of Freemasons, who reportedly bought all the grain in 1789 and either sold it abroad or hid it away, thus creating near starvation among commoners. Galart de Montjoie, a contemporary, blamed the Revolution almost solely on the Duke of Orleans, adding that he "was moved by that invisible hand which seems to have created all the events of our revolution in order to lead us towards a goal that we do not see at present..."

Drawing on an impressive number of contemporary writings, Webster added, "If, then, it is said that the [French] Revolution was prepared in the lodges of Freemasons - and many French Masons have boasted of the fact - let it always be added that it was Illuminized Freemasonry that made the Revolution, and that the Masons who acclaim it are Illuminized Masons, inheritors of the same tradition introduced into the lodges of France in 1787 by the disciples of Weishaupt, 'patriarch of the Jacobins.'"

Guiseppe Balsamo, a student of the Jewish Cabala, a Freemason, and a Rosicrucian, became known as Louis XVI's court magician Caliostro. He wrote how the German Illuminati had infiltrated the French Freemason lodges for years and added, "By March 1789, the 266 lodges controlled by the Grand Orient were all 'illuminized' without knowing it, for the Freemasons in general, were not told the name of the sect that brought them these mysteries, and only a very small number were really inititated into the secret."

Jacobins and Jacobites

Pro-revolutionary members of France's National Constituent Assembly had formed a group which became known as the Society of the Friends of the Constitution. After the Assembly moved to Paris, this group met there in a hall leased from the Jacobins' convent of Catholic Dominican Friars. These revolutionaries, sworn to protect the revolution from the aristocrats, soon were known as the Jacobin Club. Since that time, all revolutionaries have been called Jacobins.

At least that is the official story of the Jacobins. As usual, the Jacobins are tied to earlier secret societies, in this case a movement to restore a kingship in Britain.

In 1688 England's unpopular and pro-Catholic Stuart king, James II, was deposed by his Dutch son-in-law, the Protestant William of Orange. James - whose name in Latin was Jacobus, hence the name Jacobites - fled to France. There he continued to be supported by Freemasons in Scotland and Wales who sought to restore him to the English throne. They were accused by French Freemasons of converting Masonic rituals and titles into political support for this restoration.

According to some versions of Masonic history, James was ensconced in the Chateau of Saint-Germain by his friend, French King Louis XIV where he established a system of Masonry that became known as the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry.

After a series of failed rebellions, the Jacobites in Scotland were finally crushed at the battle of Culloden Moor near Inverness in 1746. Their leader, Charles Edward Stuart, "Bonnie Prince Charlie, the young pretender," escaped to France, taking with him Jacobites imbued with "Freemasonic ideals". A year later in Arras, France, Charles chartered a Masonic Sovereign Primordial Chapter of Rose Croix known as "Scottish Jacobite"...

French Masons too were heavily involved in the political events of that day. Webster noted, "All the revolutionaries of the Constituent Assembly were initiated into the third degree" of Illuminized Masonry, including revolutionary leaders such as the Duke of Orleans, Valance, Lafayette, Mirabeau, Garat, Marat, Robespierre, Danton, and Desmoulins.

Honre-Gabriel Riquetti, Comte de Mirabeau, a leading revolutionary, indeed espoused ideals which were identical with Adam Weishaupt, founder of Bavarian Illuminized Masonry. In personal papers Mirabeau called for the overthrow of all order, all laws, and all power to "leave the people in anarchy." He said the public must be promised "power to the people" and lower taxes but never given real power "for the people as legislators are very dangerous as they only establish laws which coincide with their passions." He said the clergy should be destroyed by "ridiculing religion."

Mirabeau ended his tirade by proclaiming "What matter the means as long as one arrives at the end?" - the same end-justifies-the-means philosophy preached from Weishaupt to Lenin to Hitler.

Contrary to popular history the storming of the Bastille was not the spontaneous action of a downtrodden mob. "That brigands from the South were deliberately enticed to Paris in 1789, employed and paid by the revolutionary leaders, is a fact confirmed by authorities too numerous to quote at length... In other words, the importation of the contingent of hired brigands conclusively refutes the theory that the Revolution was an irrepressible rising of the people," wrote Webster.

We see in the French Revolution the first time where grievences were systematically created in order to exploit them," wrote author still.

Such exploitation began with the Freemasons as early as 1772 when the Grand Orient Lodge was firmly established in France, counting 104 lodges. This number grew to 2,000 lodges by the time of the Revolution, with 447 lodge members participating in the 605 member Estates-General. One of their primary goals was the Nationalization of all Church property to help pay off the large debts Revolutionary France incurred in assisting their Jacobite Masonic brethrens plans during the American revolution.

Meanwhile, buoyed by the situation in France, Masonic-based revolutionary clubs sprang up in other countries, including England, Ireland, the German states, Austria, Belgium, Italy, and Switzerland. Tensions between outside nations and France rose until 1792 when France declared war on Austria and Prussia.

Confronted with both a war and a revolution, France degenerated into the Reign of Terror, during which time King Lous XVI, Marie Antoinette, and many thousands, chiefly aristocrats, were executed.


In a move similar to Hitler's action 150 years later, the Jacobins closed down all Masonic lodges in 1791, ironically fearful that Freemasonry's organizing power might be turned against them.

"Behind the Conventions, behind the clubs, behind the Revolutionary Tribunal, there existed... that most secret convention which directed everything... an occult and terrible power of which the other Convention became the slave and which was composed of the prime initiates of Illuminanism" noted Webster.

Author Epperson, after an exhaustive study of the subject, agreed. He wrote, "The invisible hand that guided the entire French Revolution was the Illuminati, only 13 years in existance, yet powerful enough to cause a revolution in one of the major countries of the world."

Wars, riots, and coups continued in France until a young General Napoleon Bonaparte finally seized complete control in 1799. Although he carried on his own brand of terror in Europe for years, Napoleon proclaimed an end to the revolution. France was in shambles. Hundreds of thousands had died of starvation, war, violence, and the guillotine. The power of both the monarchy and the monolithic church had been largely destroyed.

"So in the 'great shipwreck of civilization,' as a contemporary has described it, the projects of the Cabalists, the Gnostics, and the Secret Societies which for nearly eighteen centuries had sapped the foundation of Christianity found their fulfillment," commented Webster.

THE FRENCH REVOLUTION

The Illuminati had secretly spread to France by 1787 (five years after they had planned), ...
...
Revolutionary leaders in France, such as Maximilien Francois Marie Isidore de Robespierre (1758-1794), who was made head of the Revolution by Weishaupt; Marquis Antoine Nicholas Condorcet (1743-1794), philosopher and politician; Duke de la Rochenfoucault; George Jacques Danton (1759-1794); Marquis Marie Joseph de Lafayette (1757-1834), General and statesman; Jerome Petion de Villeneuve (1756-1794), politician; Philippe, Duke of Orleans, Grand Master of French Freemasonry; de Leutre; Fauchet; Cammille Benoit Desmoulins (1760-1794), D'Alembert; Denis Diderot (1713-1784), encyclopedist; and Jean-Francois de la Harpe (1739-1803), critic and playwright, all joined the Illuminati, who had eventually infiltrated all 266 Masonic lodges by 1789, even though the Masons weren't aware of it.

The Illuminati created situations in order to create dissention among the people. For instance, the Duke of Orleans instructed his agents to buy up as much grain as they could, then the people were led to believe that the King intentionally caused the shortage, and that the French people were starving. Fellow conspirators in the government helped create runaway inflation. Thus the people were manipulated into turning against a king whose reign had strengthened the middle class. The monarchy was to be destroyed, and the middle class oppressed. God was to be replaced by the Illuminati's religion of reason that "man's mind would solve man's problems."

During the first two years of the French Revolution, which started in April, 1789, the Illuminati had infiltrated the Masonic Lodges to such an extent, that they had ceased operation, and instead rallied under the name, "The French Revolutionary Club." When they needed a larger meeting place, they used the hall of the Jacobin's Convent, thus this revolutionary group of 1300 people emerged on July 14, 1789 as the Jacobin Club. The Illuminati controlled the Club, and were directly responsible for fermenting the activities which developed into the French Revolution.

Lord Acton wrote: "The appalling thing in the French Revolution is not the tumult but the design. Through all the fire and smoke, we perceived the evidence of calculating organization. The managers remain studiously concealed and masked; but there is no doubt about their presence from the first."

In the playing out of a plan which called for the population to be cut down by one-third to one-half, over 300,000 people died, plus, King Louis and his family were executed.

This was done to insure the stability of the new French Republic. In August, 1792, after the overthrow of the government, the tri-colored banner was replaced by the red flag of social revolution, while the cry of "Vive notre roi d'Orleans" gave way to the Masonic watchword, "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity!" Those who responded with the proper Masonic handsigns, had their lives spared.

By November, 1793, as the massacres had spread all over France, the churches had been reorganized along the lines of Weishaupt's contention that "reason should be the only code of man." Talleyrand, who became the bishop of Autin in 1788, because of his radical reorganization of the Church, was excommunicated by the Pope. He became a deputy to the National Assembly. The Jacobins controlled the National Assembly, and for all intents and purposes, Mirabeau became France's leader. In true Democratic spirit, he said: "We must flatter the people by gratuitous justice, promise them a great diminution in taxes and a more equal division, more extension in fortunes, and less humiliation. These fantasies will fanaticize the people, who will flatten all resistance." The Revolution was considered at an end on July 28, 1794, when Robespierre was guillotined.

Thomas Jefferson, who served as minister to France for three years (1785-89), described the events as "so beautiful a revolution" and said that he hoped it would sweep the world. Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton said that Jefferson helped start the French Revolution, and wrote in a letter to a friend, dated May 26, 1792, that Jefferson "drank freely of the French philosophy, in religion, in science, in politics. He came from France in the moment of fermentation, which he had a share in inciting." Jefferson wrote to Brissot de Warville in Philadelphia, in a letter dated May 8, 1793, that he was "eternally attached to the principles of the French Revolution." In 1987, during a trip to the United States by Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev and his wife, where they visited the Jefferson Memorial, she referred to Jefferson as "one of the world's greatest thinkers."

It is interesting to note, that during the Communist revolution, Nikolai Lenin said: "We, the Bolsheviks, are the Jacobins of the Twentieth Century..."

Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

Francois Hollande greeted Mexico's First Lady Angelica Rivera in Paris
She and her Mexican president husband Enrique Pena Nieto were guests of honour at France's official Bastille Day parade
But Pena Nieto has another jailbreak on his mind - that of Joaquin Guzman
Notorious drug lord known as 'El Chapo' humiliated Mexico's government by escaping from a maximum security prison over the weekend

By John Hall for MailOnline

Published: 06:54 EST, 14 July 2015  | Updated: 08:05 EST, 14 July 2015

Francois Hollande gave a warm welcome to Mexico's First Lady this morning as she and husband Enrique Pena Nieto attended France's Bastille Day celebrations as guests of honour.

The French President smiled and embraced former singer Angelica Rivera as he greeted the couple at the start of a military parade to celebrate the 226th anniversary of the storming of the Bastille.

While he was in the French capital to commemorate one of the world's most notorious jailbreaks, the Mexican leader clearly had another prison escapee weighing heavy on his mind - the notorious drug lord Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman who broke out of a maximum security prison over the weekend.

El Chapo's escape - despite him wearing a monitoring bracelet and with surveillance cameras were trained on his cell 24 hours a day - has humiliated Pena Nieto, leaving many in Mexico wondering if the country's government will ever be able to bring the powerful Sinaloa Cartel boss to justice.

New York Today: Celebrating Bastille Day
New York Today
By JONATHAN WOLFE  JULY 14, 2016

Updated, 8:22 a.m.

Good morning on this thunder-ready Thursday. It’s Bastille Day.

The holiday commemorates the storming of a French prison in 1789. Here in New York, we’ve always had strong ties to the French people.

French Huguenots formed the Huguenot Society here in 1658, and were among the earliest settlers of New York.

New Yorkers, still feeling the glow from a revolution of their own, even cheered on the sacking of the Bastille.

A sizable French quarter, stocked with absinthe, pommes frites and — what else — wine, existed south of Washington Square in the late 1800s.

Bastille Day has been celebrated in New York almost every year that France has been a republic, said Nathan Perl-Rosenthal, a professor of history at the University of Southern California.

“Especially by working-class and radical New Yorkers, who wanted to advance egalitarian ideals they saw embodied in revolutionary France,” he said.

Bastille Day military parade marches amid tight security
Latest update : 2016-07-14

A grand military parade down the Champs Elysées in Paris on Thursday included members of the French army, intelligence services, legionnaires and others for the annual Bastille Day celebrations marking the start of the 1789 French Revolution.

The procession took place under high surveillance this year, with France remaining under an official state of emergency until July 26 in wake of the November 2015 attacks.

“Some 3,000 police officers were mobilised to secure the parade zone,” FRANCE 24's Catherine Norris-Trent reported from the sidelines of the spectacle.

Here’s How the Art World Is Celebrating National Bastille Day

Marking the holiday extends far beyond France



Today marks national Bastille day, and from our corner of the universe, we know that the celebration extends far beyond French pride.

Related: 10 Revolutionary Artists in Honor of Bastille Day

France, of course, has played a storied role in the Western art historical canon. Paris was, for a spell, the center of the art world shortly after the turn of the 20th century. In the early 1900s, Pablo Picasso, Amedeo Modigliani, and other legends would roam Parisian streets in search of  inspiration.

To celebrate the holiday, and its revolutionary spirit, artnet News decided to turn to some historical offerings from the art world: from a canvas by American Impressionist painter Childe Hassam, who made a portrait of Parisian streets enlivened by celebration from his balcony view, to an iconic throwback of a French woman up in arms by Eugene Delacroix, courtesy of the Morgan Library.
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

Some French films....



HEAVEN FELL THAT NIGHT [Les Bijoutiers Du Clair De Lune] - Back to the '50s for Vadim's second film with Bardot after their AND GOD CREATED WOMAN sensation in 1956. This is a sunburned film noir, beautifully photographed in colour and CinemaScope utilising some extraordinary landscapes in Spain. BB is the young convent girl returning home to stay with aunt Alida Valli and her lecherous husband who is soon killed by local stud Stephen Boyd, who has been seeing Valli. A powerful scene takes place during the Count's funeral where we see Valli stopping in the village streets and removing her veil which covers her face to stare in silence, at Boyd, as she conceals her passions beneath a steely exterior. BB is sensational as ever but does not come to dominate the film until she and Boyd are on the run though those incredible landscapes. Her scenes with the animals (a donkey and a piglet) are charming - highlighting her future interests. There is also though the brutality of bull-fighting, and a very erotic scene as the lovers finally get together. This one does for Spain what AND GOD CREATED WOMAN did for St Tropez. Bardot and Boyd are perfect here and both look their best, which did not apply 10 years later in that trash western (also made in Spain) SHALAKO in '68 when they were both past their peaks.... Valli too is terrific in a role with shades of her Wanton Countess in Visconti's SENSO. Like the British THE SPANISH GARDENER it captures Spain before all the tourists arrived... though this must have been much more sensational at the time with BB in various states of undress; one can see how she affected the 50s, like James Dean did, being a true archtype, as Mylene Demongeot and others copied her hair and fashions. Just what the '50s needed! The dvd also contains a bumper selection of trailers for all those other BB titles, some long unseen.

Rollo Likes Normandy



The historian Reginald Allen Brown [Cf. Tnn] has written extensively about Normans and the Norman conquest.

I render him in the following:
"NORMANDY was created by the three consecutive grants of 911, 924 and 933". [Tnn 20] Especially in Lower Normandy the Scandinavian influences and custom remained rather strong. [Cf. Tnn 21 and 41n] Normandy was in part colonised. Rollo and his successors, as rulers of Normandy, obtained the title of count and valuable rights from before, along with widespread domains. [Cf. Tnn 22]

Their buildings seem to document remarkable strength or solidity. The churches were much like bastions. But the duke of Rouen controlled the whole church and his bishops owed him military service for their lands - [Cf. Tnn 32]

"From (their) Scandinavian inheritance the Normans derived their sea-faring, much of their trade and commercial prosperity which they shared with the Nordic world, their love of adventure, their wanderlust which led to the great period of Norman emigration in the eleventh century, their dynamic energy, and above all perhaps, their powers of assimila

(In AD 911) Charles the Simple, king of the west Franks, granted to a band of Vikings, operating in the Seine valley under Rollo their leader, territory corresponding to Upper or Easter Normandy. [Tnn 20] To this was subsequently added by two further grants, first the district of Bayeux, and the districts of Exmes and Seez in 924, and second the districts of Coutances and Avranches in 933 in the time of William Longsword, son and successor of Rollo. [Tnn 20] (2)

And from the French Histoire de la Normandie (1862) we find, in the fourth chapter, how Rollo, son of the Norwegian Rognevald, was made an outlaw by the Norwegian tyrant king Harald Harfager. He arrived at Rouen with his companions. The inhabitants spontaneously submitted to the giant. King Charles at first wanted to fight the Viking, but dropped it. Instead they bargained - Rollo won, he got land and permanent welcome. [Hnam 80 pp]

The historian R. Allen Brown puts the matter into relief: "Normans were pagans when they came (and they continued to come long after 911)." [Tnn 30] But their leader, the Viking Rollo, said yes to getting ◦baptised, and many others followed. More surprisingly, "Rollo . . . is (also - later) said to have wanted to become a monk (at Jumieges). That could have been due to a genuine flame deep inside. [Cf. Tnn 26]

In short time the Normans got the back-up of their astute castles and strongholds, helped themselves to most of it - often they were served by ditches and stockades too. [Cf. Tnn 44-5]

Their treaty at St. Claire-sur-Epte became a fact, and Rollo got baptised and married Gisele.

[It is thought that Rollo showed exceptional skills in navigation, warfare, leadership, and administration. He abdicated to his son Guillame (William) and died in a monastery in 933. Among his people he was for hundreds of years the personification of justice and good government under law. Others, who thought differently, found him cruel and arrogant.]

His son Guillame Longue-Epee (William Longsword) succeeded him. The third duke was Richard sans Peur (the Fearless), and there were many intrigues and hard fights. This Richard died and was succeeded by Richard 2 who massacred Saxons in England at war. The French king Robert became the ally of Richard 2. After his death, Richard 3 succeeded him and died prematurely. Robert le Diable succeeded him and, before he died in Terre-Sainte, became the father of Guillame le Conquerant: William the Conqueror. [Hnam 80 pp]

WE FIND the family tree of William the Conqueror in the book of the historian R. Allen Brown. It looks like this:

•Richard 1 (ruled: 942-96)

•Richard 2 the Good (ruled: 996-1026)

•Richard 3 (ruled: 1026-27)

•Robert 1 the Magnificent /le Diable (ruled: 1027-35)

•William the Bastard / the Conqueror (ruled: 1035-87).

Rollo's great-granddaughter, Emma married two kings of England, Æhelred the Unready and Knut who was also king of Norway and Denmark. Her son, Edward the Confessor, from the first marriage, was King of England from 1042 to 1066.

A few more dukes of Normandy may be added for the sake of survey of that dynasty line that ruled over Normandy and its English (British) domain:

•Robert 2 (ruled from 1087)

•Henry 1 (ruled from 1106, King of the English (1100-35)

•Henry II, 1135, King of the English (1135-) [◦Source]

"It was a direct result of the Viking onslaught upon Western Europe . . . tidy and precise." [Tnn 20]

"The Norman monasteries were, by and large, distinguished . . . new . . . vibrant with . . . careless rapture of spiritual endeavour". The (Normans) became great spirituals - intensely aristocratic. [Tnn 28, 30]

Master builders in a very short time, (Normans) restored and built on monasticism in outstanding degrees. [Tnn 25-6]

Normans from the next century left grand architectural monuments, and some are still there, more or less intact. The Tower of London is a very Norman building, for example. King William had much of it built. [Cf. Tnn 25 pp]

"The tower at Rouen was built by Richard 1 (943-96) and is glimpsed from time to time in the reign of his successor and thereafter . . .. It may have been the prototype for the great Norman towers at Colchester and London. [Tnn 44n] (4)

Normans went on and built very monastic churches at such places as Jumieges [one still stands there] and lots of other places. "They added their cathedrals at Rouen, Bayeux [etc.] Many of these major works of Norman Romanesque architecture survive in whole or part". [Tnn 31-2]

Formerly hostile Scandinavians . . . became converted [in that way]. [Tnn 13]

"SOME (including Norman clergy) were patrons of the arts and scholarship . . . and almost all of them were mighty builders." [Tnn 31]

Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

Gaul united, Forming a single nation Animated by a common spirit, Can defy the Universe.



https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vercingetorix
Vercingetorix (/ˌvɜːrsɪnˈdʒɛtərɪks/ VUR-sin-JET-ə-riks or /ˌvɜːrsɪŋˈɡɛtərɪks/ VUR-sing-GET-ə-riks; Latin pronunciation: [werkiŋˈɡetoriːks]; c. 82 BC – 46 BC) was a chieftain of the Arverni tribe; he united the Gauls in a revolt against Roman forces during the last phase of Julius Caesar's Gallic Wars.

Vercingetorix
came to power after his formal designation as chieftain of the Arverni at the oppidum Bibracte in 52 BC. He immediately established an alliance with other Gallic tribes, took command and combined all forces, and led them in Gaul's most significant revolt against Roman power. He won the Battle of Gergovia, in which 46 centurions and 700 legionaries died and more than 6,000 people were injured, whereupon Caesar's Roman legions withdrew.

However, Caesar had been able to exploit Gaulish internal division to easily subjugate the country, and Vercingetorix's attempt to unite the Gauls against Roman invasion came too late.[2][3] At the Battle of Alesia, the Romans besieged and defeated his forces and captured him. He was held prisoner for five years. In 46 BC, as part of Caesar's triumph, Vercingetorix was paraded through the streets of Rome and then executed by strangulation on Caesar's orders. Vercingetorix is primarily known through Caesar's Commentaries on the Gallic War.
...
Napoleon III erected a seven-meter-tall Vercingétorix monument in 1865, created by the sculptor Aimé Millet, on the supposed site of Alesia. The architect for the memorial was Eugène Viollet-le-Duc.[14] The impressive statue still stands. The inscription on the base, written by Viollet-le-Duc, which copied the famous statement of Julius Caesar, reads (in French):

La Gaule unieFormant une seule nationAnimée d'un même esprit,Peut défier l'Univers.
Gaul united, Forming a single nation Animated by a common spirit, Can defy the Universe.

Many other monumental statues of Vercingetorix were erected in France during the 19th century, including one by Bartholdi on the Place de Jaude in Clermont-Ferrand (see first image).[15]




Comparing the NWO to the Norman Conquest   

Prior to the Normans and the Bastard William , there was the Bastard Julius Caesar and his NWO Roman Empire...

This led to the subjugation of the Gauls for 500 years.
Think of Stalin/Mao - 50 years and a generation in the USSR and Eastern Europe is enslaved and subjected to a yoke of tyranny.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Alesia
The only known fact is that each man in Caesar's legions received a Gaul as a slave, which means at least 40,000 prisoners,

http://allthingsd.com/20091223/project-alesia-news-corp-s-roman-battle-cry-does-that-cast-googlers-as-the-gauls/





Taking place in September 52 BC in what is now France, the Siege of Alesia (also referred to as the Battle of Alesia) pitted Rome’s famed leader, Julius Caesar, against the Gallic tribes under the unified command of Vercingétorix of Averni.

More important–besides being cited as one of the best uses of siege warfare and “circumvallation” (see more about this below)–the battle of Alesia is considered a turning point in the bitter wars conducted by the Roman Republic to tame the Gauls, who had finally united as a single force in opposition to the Roman invasion.

The hard-fought win–in a battle where the Roman army was outnumbered five-to-one, outside a hilltop fort in Alesia–is often credited with reinvigorating Rome’s power over Gaul. After the loss, Gaul became a province of the Roman empire and was pretty much subdued for the next 500 years.

Alesia is often cited as one of Caesar’s greatest military victories and the fallout from it later led to his ascension to ultimate power in Rome (which was soon followed by his infamous assassination).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leslie_Caron




Leslie Claire Margaret Caron (French: [lɛsli kaʁɔ̃]; born 1 July 1931) is a Franco-American film actress and dancer who appeared in 45 films between 1951 and 2003. Her autobiography, Thank Heaven, was published in 2010 in the UK and US, and in 2011 in a French version. Veteran documentarian Larry Weinstein's Leslie Caron: The Reluctant Star will premiere in Toronto on June 28, 2016.[1]

Caron is best known for the musical films An American in Paris (1951), Lili (1953), Daddy Long Legs (1955), Gigi (1958), and for the nonmusical films Fanny (1961), The L-Shaped Room (1962), and Father Goose (1964). She received two Academy Award nominations for Best Actress. In 2006, her performance in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit won her an Emmy for guest actress in a drama series. She is fluent in French, English, and Italian. She is one of the few dancers or actresses who have danced with Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, Mikhail Baryshnikov and Rudolf Nureyev.


Caron was born in Boulogne-sur-Seine, Seine (now Boulogne-Billancourt, Hauts-de-Seine), the daughter of Margaret (née Petit), a Franco American dancer on Broadway, and Claude Caron, a French chemist, pharmacist, perfumer and boutique owner.[2] While her older brother Aimery Caron became a chemist like their father, Caron was prepared for a performing career from childhood by their mother.
...
In September 1951, Caron married American George Hormel III, a grandson of the founder of Hormel (a meat-packing company). They divorced in 1954.[9] Her second husband was British theatre director Peter Hall. They married in 1956 and had two children: Christopher John Hall (TV producer) in 1957 and Jennifer Caron Hall, a writer, painter, and actress, in 1958. Caron had an affair with Warren Beatty (1961). When Hall and she divorced in 1965, Beatty was named as a co-respondent and was ordered by the London court to pay "the costs of the case."[10] In 1969, Caron married Michael Laughlin, best known as producer of the film Two-Lane Blacktop; they divorced in 1980. Her son-in-law is Glenn Wilhide, the producer and screenwriter.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Field_of_the_Cloth_of_Gold
The Field of the Cloth of Gold (French: Camp du Drap d'Or) was a site in Balinghem – between Ardres in France and Guînes in the then-English Pale of Calais – that hosted a meeting from 7 to 24 June 1520, between King Henry VIII of England and King Francis I of France.

The meeting was arranged to increase the bond of friendship between the two kings following the Anglo-French treaty of 1514. These two monarchs would meet again in 1532 to arrange Francis' assistance in pressuring Pope Clement VII to pronounce Henry's first marriage as illegitimate. Under the guidance of English Cardinal Thomas Wolsey, the chief nations of Europe sought to outlaw war forever among Christian nations.

Though now in France, Balinghem was at the time regarded as part of England. This was probably the main reason for it as the choice of meeting place; being English territory but surrounded by France renders it as close to neutral territory as was practicable.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beauty_and_the_Beast
Beauty and the Beast (French: La Belle et la Bête) is a traditional fairy tale written by French novelist Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve and published in 1740 in La Jeune Américaine et les contes marins.[1]

 Her lengthy version was abridged, rewritten, and published by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont in 1756 in Magasin des enfants[2] to produce the version most commonly retold

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beauty_and_the_Beast_(1946_film)


Beauty and the Beast (French: La Belle et la Bête) is a 1946 French romantic fantasy film adaptation of the traditional fairy tale Beauty and the Beast, written by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont and published in 1757 as part of a fairy tale anthology (Le Magasin des Enfants, ou Dialogues entre une sage gouvernante et ses élèves, London 1757). Directed by French poet and filmmaker Jean Cocteau, the film stars Josette Day as Belle and Jean Marais.

The plot of Cocteau's film revolves around Belle's father who is sentenced to death for picking a rose from Beast's garden. Belle offers to go back to the Beast in her father's place. Beast falls in love with her and proposes marriage on a nightly basis which she refuses. Belle eventually becomes more drawn to Beast, who tests her by letting her return home to her family and telling her that if she doesn't return to him within a week, he will die of grief.

Sensation - Poem by Arthur Rimbaud

In the blue summer evenings, I will go along the paths,
And walk over the short grass, as I am pricked by the wheat:
Daydreaming I will feel the coolness on my feet.
I will let the wind bathe my bare head.
I will not speak, I will have no thoughts:
But infinite love will mount in my soul;
And I will go far, far off, like a gypsy,
Through the country side-joyous as if I were with a woman.

Arthur Rimbaud

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthur_Rimbaud
Jean Nicolas Arthur Rimbaud (/ræmˈboʊ/[2] or /ˈræmboʊ/; French: [aʁtyʁ ʁɛ̃bo] ( listen); 20 October 1854 – 10 November 1891) was a French poet who is known for his influence on modern literature and arts, which prefigured surrealism. Born in Charleville-Mézières, he started writing at a very young age and was a prodigious student, but abandoned his formal education in his teenage years to run away from home amidst the Franco-Prussian War.[3] After running away, during his late adolescence and early adulthood, he began the bulk of his literary output, but completely stopped writing at the age of 21, after assembling one of his major works, Illuminations.

Rimbaud was known to have been a libertine and for being a restless soul
, having engaged in an at times violent romantic relationship with fellow poet Paul Verlaine, which lasted nearly two years. After the end of his literary career, he traveled extensively on three continents as a merchant before his death from cancer just after his thirty-seventh birthday.[4] As a poet, Rimbaud is well-known for his contributions to Symbolism and, among other works, A Season in Hell, which was a significant precursor to modernist literature.[5]

Bob Dylan and Arthur Rimbaud:Poetry and the Senses

Bob Dylan has named the nineteenth-century French poet Arthur Rimbaud as one of his major sources of inspiration.   In this seminar we will explore the connections between these two important writers.  First we will read carefully through the poetry and letters of Rimbaud, one of the most original and powerful of modern poets. We will try to get a sense of what makes Rimbaud’s poetry so influential, not only for Dylan, but for a whole host of modern artists.  Then we will study the intersection between Rimbaud’s work and Dylan’s.  Central to our concerns will be the role of the senses in poetic creation, as well as, of course, the relationship between lyric poetry and song.   Students will gain familiarity with the writing of a major modern poet and have the chance to work closely on issues of poetic language and versification.  Students will be expected to participate actively in the discussion and write two short papers.  The course will be in English.  No knowledge of French is required.

Rimbaud, Jean Arthur, 1854-91, French author.

Suze Rotolo introduced Dylan to the works of Rimbaud:
"I came across one of his letters called "Je est un autre," which translates into "I is someone else." When I read those words the bells
went off. It made perfect sense. I wished someone would have mentioned that to me earlier."

...  French symbolists like Paul Verlaine and Arthur Rimbaud. Both Verlaine and Rimbaud are mentioned specifically in the Blood on the Tracks song “You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go.”
...
While films like I’m Not There and numerous books and articles on Dylan suggest that he is a man with many masks, it is perhaps a line from a letter written by Rimbaud that defines him best: “Je est un autre.” Music and cultural critic Ellen Willis writes, “Not since Rimbaud said “I is another” has an artist been so obsessed with escaping identity. His masks hidden by other masks. . . .” This point was made also by music historian Greil Marcus and by Todd Haynes and Oren Moverman in their screenplay for the film I’m Not There. While Dylan denies in his memoirs that he is a man of many masks, he writes near the end, “When I read [Rimbaud’s] words the bells went off.”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Baudelaire
Charles Pierre Baudelaire (/ˌboʊdəlˈɛər/;[1] French: [ʃaʁl bodlɛʁ] ( listen); April 9, 1821 – August 31, 1867) was a French poet who also produced notable work as an essayist, art critic, and pioneering translator of Edgar Allan Poe.

His most famous work, Les Fleurs du mal (The Flowers of Evil), expresses the changing nature of beauty in modern, industrializing Paris during the 19th century. Baudelaire's highly original style of prose-poetry influenced a whole generation of poets including Paul Verlaine, Arthur Rimbaud and Stéphane Mallarmé among many others. He is credited with coining the term "modernity" (modernité) to designate the fleeting, ephemeral experience of life in an urban metropolis, and the responsibility art has to capture that experience

On the original album recording, on "Blood On The Tracks", 1975, Dylan sings 13th Century. That's probably all you wanted to know but if you're looking for a full answer you'll be interested in the many variations on these particular lines and the insight they provide.

Dylan tells us who he thinks the poet is in a 1978 interview, included below after the lyric extracts. Be warned though, you can't always trust what he has to say about his own songs :-)

I am no expert on poets of the 13th Century but I have searched the archives and come up with an old rec.music.dylan thread on this very subject. This is  included after interview extract.

And handed it to me

And every one of them words rang true
And glowed like burnin' coal
Pourin' off of every page
Like it was written in my soul from me to you,
Tangled up in blue.

that Rimbaud came to when he decided to stop writing and run guns in Africa.

Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

France celebrates Bastille Day, awaits World Cup final
latest update : 2018-07-14

Security has been tightened ahead of a weekend that France hopes will bring back-to-back celebrations of Bastille Day on July 14 and a victory in the 2018 World Cup final, with 110,000 members of the security services deployed across France.

Paris Police Chief Michel Delpuech earlier this week announced that 12,000 officers and 3,000 rescue workers would be mobilised in Paris and its suburbs for France's national day on Saturday and on Sunday, when France meets Croatia for the World Cup final match in Moscow.

Chirac escapes assassination attempt
Sun 14 Jul 2002 15.18 EDT

The French president, Jacques Chirac, today survived an assassination attempt by a man described as an emotionally disturbed neo-Nazi.

The man pulled a fully loaded rifle from a guitar case and fired one shot before he was wrestled to the ground. He fired as President Chirac, riding in an open-top jeep just tens of metres away, was reviewing troops at the start of a pomp-filled military parade in Paris to celebrate Bastille Day.

Cries of alarm from members of the crowd along the tree-lined edge of the Champs-Elysees apparently alerted police, who wrestled him to the ground. There were no reported injuries. A government official said the gunman tried to shoot himself after the attack.

Paris police said in a statement that the man was 25 years old and a member of "neo-Nazi and hooligan" groups.

Police did not officially release his name.

A man described as emotionally disturbed and with known neo-Nazi links is being held in the psychiatric unit of the Paris police force after he apparently tried to kill President Jacques Chirac.

The man, standing near the Arc de Triomphe, took a hunting rifle out of a guitar case and fired a shot as Mr Chirac was reviewing troops in an open-top jeep at the start of the Bastille Day parade.

Bastille Day 2019 - for Yellow Vests ,....




Yellow Vests Organizing Run On French Banks
RT January 10, 2019


Yellow Vest protesters are hoping to trigger a bank run with a nationwide coordinated cash withdrawal.

By threatening the French financial system, protesters say, they want to peacefully force the government to pass their reforms.

?If the banks weaken, the state weakens immediately,? said Yellow Vest ?sympathizer? Tahz San on Facebook. ?It?s elected officials' worst nightmare.?

Protesters plan to empty their bank accounts on Saturday, withdrawing as much money as possible in a bid to undermine the French banks ? if not the euro itself.

The plan is to ?scare the state legally and without violence,? forcing the government to adopt the movement?s Citizens? Referendum Initiative, which would allow citizens to propose and vote on new laws.

Thousands of Yellow Vests March in Paris and Bourges in Ninth Week of Anti-Macron Protests
12 Jan 2019


PARIS (AP) ? Thousands of people wearing yellow vests started marching in the streets of Paris as others were gathering in the central French city of Bourges amid high security measures as authorities feared possible violence between police and protesters Saturday.

In Paris, a few thousand people set off from near the Finance Ministry in eastern Paris at around 11 a.m. (1000 GMT; 5 a.m. EST) and were walking peacefully in the central streets of the capital. They were planning to head toward Champs-Elysees avenue.

Paris police say 24 people were arrested Saturday before the protests started, primarily for carrying potential weapons.
