Under the Gilets Jaunes: How an online petition started a civil movement.
This week Tom has an exclusive interview with one of the founders of the Gilets Jaunes protest movement, Priscillia Ludosky.
The story of the “Yellow Vests” is one of violence and protest, police brutality and a restlessness, among some, with democratic processes.
Priscillia tells Tom about how the movement started, whether she takes responsibility for the violence, injuries and death and how the “Giles Jaunes” inspire other groups around the world. We talk about Brexit, Frexit and the future of western liberal democracy.
Tom is also joined by James Rogers, Director of the Global Britain programme at the Henry Jackson Society. They discuss Chinese interference in British universities, the recent reshuffle, the foreign-policy review, Idlib and the latest technology wizzing around in the skies above us.
