Coffee with Comrades

Mar 12, 2019

In this episode of Coffee with Comrades, we’re goin’ international. In the first edition of this two-part series, we speak with our American comrades at Inhabit and our new friends from France about Les Gilets Jaunes/The Yellow Vest Movement!

We discuss the origins of Les Gilets Jaunes/The Yellow Vest movement, decentralization, Paris vs. the French countryside, blockading roundabouts, popular assemblies, leaderless rebellion, “non-lethal” weapons, galvanizing common people who take to the streets for the very first time, the potency of symbols, and the efficacy of revolutionary violence.
