The leader? WE
The government is trying to impose leaders on yellow vests that do not want them:
It is quite clear that the government is trying to make Eric Drouet a martyr.
After his first arrest, several petitions to free him were circulated:
like this one: https://www.change.org/p/nous-les-gilets-jaunes-libérer-eric-drouet
They have been signed by thousands of people.
He was arrested a second time when he came with a dozen friends, without yellow vests, to place a candle at the Concorde in memory of the dead since the beginning of the movement.
The atmosphere was calm. Here is the Concorde a few minutes before his arrest: https://www.francetvinfo.fr/live/message/5c2/d1d/fb8/256/bfc/6c1/70a/ad1.htm
Here are the images of his second arrest: https://twitter.com/ClementLanot/status/1080557500645158912?s=20
and his indictment: https://www.francetvinfo.fr/live/message/5c2/d2c/4a8/256/bfc/6c1/70a/af4.html
Mélanchon is the first to have reacted on france info. He would be happy to be the leader the government is looking for.
Of course we must defend Eric Drouet but without dispersing ourselves. The goal is not to prevent the government from making arrests, it is stronger at this game. The aim is to defend democracy.
Let us not lose focus by focusing on people, that is exactly what the government wants. Let us continue to defend the ideas that bring us together. The Popular Initiative is what the yellow vests want to talk about and that is what they must talk about despite the government’s provocations.
