Yellow Vests - Week 8

The yellow vest protest continued after Christmas. While the violence in Paris gets all the attention, there are non-violent protests all over France. The latest move by the yellow vests is to cause a run on the banks by having their members withdraw their money from their bank accounts. It will be interesting to see how this works out.
Dior has changed the date of their mens fashion show from a Saturday, when most of the protests take place, to a Friday.
And in other news, a street artist has painted a mural depicting Liberty leading the yellow vest modeled after the famous Delacroix painting.

I don't think this movement is going to go away anytime soon and President Macron seems to have no idea how to deal with them. And our new congress critter talk about 70% tax rates.
