French Yellow Vest Protesters Urge Supporters To Spark Bank Run With Mass Withdrawals

Activists from the Gilets Jaunes (Yellow Vest) movement have vandalized nearly 60% of France's country-wide speed camera network, according to Interior Minister Christophe Castaner, who said that the wilful damage was a threat to road safety and endangered lives, according to the BBC.

Bank run?

While the Yellow Vest movement has been taking to the streets for violent clashes with French police, activists from the movement are now recommending that French protesters empty their bank accounts to spark a bank run - in a move which one protester, Maxime Nicolle, called a "tax collector's referendum."

"We are going to get our bread back ... You’re making money with our dough, and we’re fed up," said Nicolle in a video message, as reported by the Associated Press.

The movement’s adherents said they hoped the banking action will force the French government to heed their demands, especially giving citizens the right to propose and vote on new laws. -Associated Press
