More than a year after the launch of the Yellow Vests, its emblematic figure and spokesperson, Eric Drouet has left the movement.
It’s over for Eric Drouet. He announced it publicly on Facebook. This figure of the Yellow Vests declared to withdraw definitively from the movement, Friday 24th January on the profile “Enervated France”. There will be no return possible, he warns.
For more than a year, Eric Drouet was, therefore, one of the figures of the movement with the Savignienne Priscilla Ludovsky and Maxime Nicolle. Bored by threats which would weigh on his private life, the Melunais bitterly announces having participated in his last demonstration, in a video. “It is something very beautiful that we launched together, I will remember it all my life”, launches the truck driver facing the camera before delivering one last tip: “Putting yourself forward, it brings more problems than anything else. Stay in the movement but stay anonymous. ”
Conviction of heavy fines for “the organization of demonstrations without a prior declaration”, degradation of his house in Melun, punctured tires, the activist seems to have run out of patience. “The government gave us a big finger when it said to us” we let you approach power but you will do nothing “, he lambasted.
The ex-spokesman of the yellow vests also ensures that the € 150,000 prize pool collected on Paypal and intended for the injured will be settled in a few weeks.
