Like their sister protesters in France, London Yellow vests have brought parts of central London to a standstill.
Smoke bombs and blocked roads outside Parliament today caused major disruption, with at least 100 people wearing the high visibility ‘Yellow Vests’ gathered at Westminster, setting off smoke bombs as they marched along Whitehall on the way to Trafalgar Square.
Transport for London issued a travel warning due to the protests and Scotland Yard issued a statement that there were four arrests of the protesters, including a 13-year-old girl. A Met spokesperson said:
“Four arrests have been made following protests on Westminster Bridge, SW1 at approximately 11am today.
“Three men were arrested on suspicion of public order offences.
“A 13-year-old girl was also arrested on suspicion of assault on police.”
Meanwhile in France, the genesis of the Yellow Vests movement, protesters have returned to the streets. A member of Macron’s administration called them ‘hardliners bent on bringing down’ the government.
There were 15 police wagons deployed where several hundred protesters gathered along the Champs Elysées.
Leavers in Britain are being called on to march in non-violent protests against Theresa May and No. 10 wearing the Yellow Vests by Brexiteer Steven Woolfe, as MPs are pushing for a second referendum after an extension to Article 50.
Mr. Woolfe explains that if Leave voters rebel against He House if Commons elite now Brexit voters will be “crashed and trumped”.
