In Caen and the surrounding area, Yellow Vests have taken some roundabouts with a spectacular operation: the construction of a small replica of Notre-Dame.
As announced the Yellow Vests have taken roundabouts in Caen (Calvados) and in its agglomeration.
The mobilization is certainly not as big as hoped for with about more than 200 protesters in all, but several roundabouts are busy without the traffic being blocked.
The police are only present (in number) in Colombelles but away from the roundabout Lazarro.
Notre-Dame des Droits in Colombelles
The strongest and most spectacular mobilization is precisely in Colombelles , just next to Caen. Yellow Vests historic site, the roundabout Lazzaro is occupied by a hundred people.
Barbecue, request for donations, protesters have mostly built with wooden pallets, a small replica of Notre-Dame de Paris: Notre-Dame des Droits.
A way to remember the expectations of always Yellow Vests. At the Décathlon roundabout in Mondeville , there are around thirty yellow vests present. It is more than the roundabout Zenith Caen with 6 yellow vests nevertheless visible. The protective stone blocks have been redecorated … in yellow.
The roundabout of Bretteville-sur-Odon all in yellow
In Bretteville-sur-Odon, another place of convergences since the beginning of movement, the roundabout at the exit of the A84 has the appearance of a fair. Yellow balloons, streamers, barbecue, distribution of leaflets, forty people occupy space in a good-natured atmosphere.
“The contempt of France from above”
Henry, retired from Caen 79 years, is a regular. Since almost the beginning, he participates in the actions:
“Me, it is the scorn that made me leave home. The contempt of France from above, against France from below. Since May 1968, I had not manifested. It is sad and comforting because we meet many different people, rich, but I do not know what it will give. But I’m ready to continue.”
