Gilet Jaune – Yellow Vest

A tribute to a French movement

This is in no way intended to be a mockery of a movement — that of gilets jaunes – yellow vests — motivated by reasons which are utterly worthy of support and admiration. We just love to collect a certain kind of stuff, and whoever’s following us for some time, knows it. After all, we usually love the things we pick up around.

The movement began in France through mass demonstrations, on 17 November 2018, after an online petition posted in May had attracted nearly a million signatures. It is motivated by rising fuel prices, high cost of living, and claims that a disproportionate burden of the government’s tax reforms were falling on the working and middle classes. Since the French yellow vests or Gilet jaunes movement has gained international attention, protesters — some with similar grievances and others entirely unrelated — have used the yellow vest symbol in many places around the world.
