"sociability" networks

No concrete result, certainly. But a mobilization of this magnitude can not remain without consequences: some links woven on the circles, are they dedicated to persist, to believe Emmanuelle Reungoat, Lecturer in Political Science at the University of Montpellier and author of a investigation into "yellow vests". " A whole network of sociability and interconnence has been created, with an exit of isolation for some people. Solidarity has been seen, for example, between single mothers. People who met on the roundabouts even speak of "family" , affirms the political scientist. These networks could be reactivated, see removal. "

after this awareness, many" yellow vests "have tasted for the first time to politics. " There was a first politicization experience, with meetings, lyricists, tractages, in people who were generally low-politicized ", Analysis Emmanuelle Reungoat. It remains to know what will happen from this first protest experience. Could it translate electorally, as the presidential approach? "There will probably no single electoral force. The "yellow vests" were a very heterogeneous movement, which gathered very divergent political opinions. They evacuated the questions that crystallize their difference, like the migratory issue, for example, to focus on their dissatisfaction , "observes the political scientist.

It is also why, in three years, the movement has little or no institutionalized. "They were too defiant towards the policy, and towards any form of leadership to organize in part or in the union. The movement is condemned, by its structure, to exist by spontaneous generation. Which makes it fragile ... and unpredictable ", Avance Christian Le Bart. On the other hand, the "yellow vests" that have tasted politics could well, in the future, to remobilize. "This first experience is an entry to other protest political practices, such as anti-passenger movements, for example ," concludes Emmanuelle Reungoat.
