"The yellow vest movement is building its own political body, its representatives gather everywhere in France around one table, so we are forming a counterpower. This is the reality. What [French President Emmanuel] Macron claimed to do is creating 'horizontal politics' with the representatives coming from the people. We will get it going and it is a real opposition force," Chalencon stated.
The yellow vest "spokesman" said that he believed that Macron and his government were at the edge of a political collapse.
"I think, that today Macron is at the edge of an implosion. His political party is imploding, there are deputies who leave the LREM [La Republique En Marche] party, LREM is imploding…We have almost two-month conflict and we ask Macron to change the policies. If he does not change the direction of his politics, he will fall," Chalencon argued.
According to Chalencon, Macron and members of his government are no longer safe in the country and are able to appear on the streets only under police escort.
"There are still numerous manifestations as before everywhere in France, Paris included. There was a massive protest action in Avignon, with people blocking the malls. The protest goes on… We are at the edge of a civil war. Politicians today have to take the responsibility," Chalencon indicated.
The rallies are being held throughout France on Saturdays. Despite the fact that the latest mass actions saw fewer participants, the protests' organizers plan to proceed with further demonstrations.
