Yellow Vest Protesters Call for Run on Banks, Withdraw Cash to 'Frighten the State'


Yellow vests are calling for cash withdrawals from French Banks in a bid to disrupt the system and force the state to heed their demands.

(SN) — The call comes as French Prime Minister Eduard Philippe said that about 80,000 law enforcement officers had been mobilized throughout the country, including about five thousand in Paris alone, ahead of the ninth wave of Yellow Vest demonstrations, scheduled for Saturday.

Yellow Vest protesters have called on their supporters to withdraw their money from French banks in a bid to disrupt "the system" and make the government heed the protesters' demands, specifically related to their right to propose and vote on new laws, according to France 24.

The news network cited a protester identified as Tahz San as saying that they are "going to frighten the state with legal means, without resorting to violence".
