Yellow Vests in Germany: Hundreds Protest New EU Regulations from Breitbart London
GNN Note – We are sharing this story today as it ties in with, and helps to prove our case, the Christian resurgence. It may be difficult to see how this story ties in, if looked at in insolation, however, if one looks at the bigger picture and all the nations, all the people there is a tapestry that begins to unfold and a landscape that is quiet beautiful. People all around the world are awakening to the oppression that has been developing over the past 4-5 decades and the people are beginning to wake up, stand up and speak up. They are also picking up the Armor of God in order to shield themselves from the storm. This has been an ongoing thesis for of ours for close to a year. This is another piece of the puzzle.
Frankfurt am Main (AFP) – Hundreds of people demonstrated Saturday in Stuttgart, the bastion of Germany’s car industry, against a recent driving ban on older diesels, wearing yellow vests to match protesters in France whose movement began as a reaction to proposed fuel hikes.

Since January 1, only diesel vehicles meeting the Euro 5 emissions standard are allowed into Stuttgart, home of Mercedes-Benz maker Daimler, Volkswagen subsidiary Porsche and the world’s biggest car parts supplier Bosch.
The demonstrators held banners saying “Pro-diesel” and “Diesel drivers mobilise” as they gathered outside a car emissions centre.
“What’s happening to people is unjust,” joint organiser Vasilos Topalis told AFP.
“Tens of thousands of people are affected and can’t afford to buy a new car” following the court-ordered ban, he added.
Environmental organisations last year took to the courts to push through similar driving bans in many German cities where emissions exceed European Union limits.
Judges ordered Berlin, Mainz, Hamburg and Bonn to limit some diesels’ access, while parts of a motorway near Essen will be closed to the cars.
In response, the Stuttgart organisers have asked people to hit the streets clad in the yellow high-visibility vests that have defined months of protests in France — themselves triggered by an increase in tax on diesel.
