France: Yellow vest protesters play out "Act 8" in Paris
BEWARE BRITISH YELLOW VEST FAKERY
The Observer has learned that BNP founder Nick Griffin is among a cohort of prominent far-right figures keen to hijack the UK’s yellow-vest movement, which has recently appropriated the high-visibility jackets worn in the French gilet jaune protests.
Griffin has established links with a recently formed group called Liberty Defenders that purports to fight for civil rights.
This group is attempting to establish itself as a prominent part of the UK’s yellow vests and in turn hoping to hijack the Brexit debate to gain support.
According to Hope Not Hate, which monitors far-right activity, prominent members of the group include former soldier Tim Scott, who once led the UK branch of Germany’s anti-Islam group Pegida, and former Ukip candidate Jack Sen, who was suspended from the party over racially charged comments.
