France's Red Scarves: Ready-Made Counter-Protest And New Media Darlings

• https://www.zerohedge.com, Tyler Durden

As the "Yellow Vest," or Gilet Jaunes, protest in France continues to perplex and concern the French government and European elites, a new "counter-protest" has emerged in response to the popular protest movement now entering its 12th week.

Protesters branding themselves as the "Red Scarves," or Foulards Rouge, descended on Paris this past Sunday in order to protest the "violence" of some Gilet Jaunes protesters and a desire to see the country return to "normalcy." The French government, which has sought to weaken and disperse the Yellow Vests movement since its inception, stated that the Red Scarves numbered around 10,500 in Paris, while other reports claimed that the demonstration was significantly smaller than the government-supplied figure.
