Over two months, France’s yellow vest movement has kept its lights on with protests against taxes and the banking system. On February 1, Gilets Jaunes from the bill printing factory shared their plans to show the world that they mean business, by starting with Israeli banknotes and burning pallets of bills.

France’s grassroots yellow vest movement has made headlines all over the globe, protesting the country’s politics and monetary system. One example is Tuesday February 5, when 18,000 Gilets Jaunes marched side by side alongside 12,000 CGT workers in Paris. On Friday, protesters wore the uniforms of employees who claimed to be working at the Banque de France. The associated yellow vest group threatened to set fire to large quantities of banknotes. France’s news.Bitcoin.com correspondent explained how the bill-burners are demanding social and fiscal justice in a unique way.

The video of the banknote-burning group on Facebook explains that “in the last 15 days, we’ve burnt passport paper, bank checks paper, and gray card paper for vehicle documentation.” “But the French Government is totally deaf so we move on to the next stage — If the French government keeps making it appear that nothing is scandalous is occurring, we will make it so everyone in the world knows what’s going on.”
