For anyone interested in the Yellow Vest movement in France, this was a really good explainer and analysis episode to get you caught up. Thank you @jspinelle for asking about the intersectionality of race in this movement. I don't think I was really satisfied by Stangler's answer on that, but the post-interview analysis was a good take. Would be interesting to hear from French PoC working class people what they think about this all. I also enjoyed listening the back and forth on protests in the analysis part of the podcast. I think everyone constantly wants cohesive demands coming from movement, but protests aren't necessarily about specific sets of demands. Also, not sure if I agree that Yellow Vest and Women's March is similar in nature.
