Yellow Vests Plan a Bank Run. Will it Work?

January 11, 2019

Yellow vests hope to trigger a bank run Saturday by withdrawing funds en masse (from RT)

Yellow Vest protesters are hoping to trigger a bank run with a nationwide coordinated cash withdrawal. By threatening the French financial system, protesters say, they want to peacefully force the government to pass their reforms.

"If the banks weaken, the state weakens immediately," said Yellow Vest "sympathizer" Tahz San on Facebook. "It's elected officials' worst nightmare."

Protesters plan to empty their bank accounts on Saturday, withdrawing as much money as possible in a bid to undermine the French banks - if not the euro itself. The plan is to "scare the state legally and without violence," forcing the government to adopt the movement's Citizens' Referendum Initiative, which would allow citizens to propose and vote on new laws.  

"We are going to get our bread're making money with our dough, and we're fed up," said protester Maxime Nicolle in a video message shared on YouTube. 

A well-coordinated financial action has the potential to bring the French banking system - and by extension, the euro - to its knees, as banks always hold only a fraction of the funds the country's citizens have in their accounts. However, most banks limit ATM withdrawals to a relatively low amount, meaning protesters would have to line up inside the banks to withdraw the rest of their money, giving the state plenty of time to place restrictions on withdrawals - though this would, no doubt, spark further protest.

The financial demonstration is a novel means of circumventing Prime Minister Edouard Philippe's proposed crackdown on "unauthorized protests," announced earlier this week after a particularly violent weekend of clashes with armed riot police - including an unexpected appearance by boxer Christophe Dettinger. Philippe has promised 80,000 security forces will be deployed for the next protest.

And you can slice and dice it any way you like, but if people want to take the New World Order by the balls, taking their money out of the Bank is obviously the most direct approach. The System cannot exist without our cooperation.  And only a small percentage of the people have to do it. says 1% should be enough to deliver a huge blow to the confidence in the System. 

Demonstrations are fine to blow off some steam and to expose the true face of the State and its violent clampdowns.  

Non-cooperation, and of course ultimately providing and promoting the superior alternatives (in the case of Banking using the power of money creation to serve the People with interest-free credit, instead of exploiting them with Usury) are the key issues. We must heed Jacques Attali's warning, that the NWO expects to win because they don't believe the people can provide an alternative.

It's fantastic to hear that the Gilets Jaunes getting down to business. Of course, we'll have to see how far it all goes, but there is also this interview with one of them, this guy on Facebook is pretty succinct in his analysis. 23 million views (!!!) 

I did get one myself by the way. There have not been demonstrations in my town yet, but I just wear it when walking around town.

By the way: I also liked Tucker Carlson's recent rant, in which he called the Right out for its obsession with Capitalism, and how what we currently have is obviously atrocious for the People.

Anyway, the Bankers are far from done, but it is refreshing, to see some actual resistance, and people slowly but surely.

Take Your Money Out of the Banks 
from April 5, 2012 
by Anthony Migchels

We are paying trillions per year in interest to the banksters for absolutely nothing.
The solution is simple: quit their banks.

They say we need the banks, because otherwise the real economy would have no money to trade with.

All this is complete and utter rubbish, of course. If banks can create credit, then anybody can. That's just common sense.

Just imagine: we are led to believe that we need to cough up trillions just to have a medium of exchange that is completely paper/computer based. I.e., almost free of cost.

[Central bankers create the medium of exchange, coupons called currency, in the form a debt to themselves backed by our government's "credit."  In other words, our "money" is credit extended by the Rothschilds. Banks are Rothschild franchises. Why do we trust our money to them? HM] 

Banking is part of the Babylon Mystery and bankers believe we are still enthralled with their 'fractional reserve banking' sleight of hand.

And they are right. Although people are waking up, they still don't get it.

 A good example of this is the 'take your money out of Bank of America' of last October. Bank of America decides to rake in an extra $60 per year with a silly fee. This upset people.

While they are paying $300k interest over 30 years on their $200k mortgage. Which the bank created out of nothing the moment they borrowed it.

Meanwhile, 45% of our disposable income is lost to pay for capital included in the prices we pay for our daily needs.

In other words: Penny wise, pound foolish. People still don't understand how they are fleeced through interest on the fictional debt.


Of course, it was good to see people finally showing some teeth.

Boycotting the banks is the blindingly obvious approach. If somebody is enslaving you with interest and fractional reserve banking while destroying the economy by not lending why would you patronize his business?

Propping up a system that only exists to enslave us is irresponsible.

But only a few are willing to accept this simple conclusion.

The fact of the matter is: many are still enthralled with the 'magnificent edifice of international finance', as Rothschild mouthpiece the Economist once called it.

It is unfortunate that there is still widespread misunderstanding about both money and our real problem with it.

People do not yet understand how pervasive the enslavement through interest really is.

That's why they fall for the notion that Gold will solve our problems. But what does it matter whether we pay all this interest for Gold or for paper-based credit? The Money Power owns both and all the interest will end up in the same place.

The mind control of the rich, the social conditioning to accept the current order and its despicable 'morality', to defend it at the cost of oneself and one's loved ones is very profound and pervasive in our beliefs. They are not easily uprooted, not even by the 'Internet Reformation'.

In the meantime we are ignoring the real solution: interest-free money. Either debt free, in the form of Social Credit, which would work out like a 'Citizens Dividend'.
Or interest-free credit, through Mutual Credit.

These solutions are real and we can implement them today.

We would no longer pay interest on a mortgage, which would also mean much lower rent.

We would pay 45% less for what we need because there would be no capital cost included in prices.  World Government would be dead and Big Business would face the competition of well funded small business.

Washington and Brussels are owned by the Money Power in the City of London. But the main reason we are not doing this is the people don't understand the problem and therefore the solution.


We don't need to wait for reform on a national level. We can create our own currencies. High powered currencies, not just the simple barter units that are now starting to float everywhere in the world. We can create extremely effective, interest-free credit based units, convertible to dollar or euro providing us with a printing press with which we can buy back the world interest-free.

But these will take time to build up. Meanwhile, the obvious thing to do is pull our money out of the banks.

We should not have one dime in that system. Every dollar we put in the banking system gives them a dollar income per year. Remember that. The system, through fractional reserve banking, multiplies your dollar by ten and takes interest over each of them.

Real interest rates (including credit cards) are probably close to 10% and that means they make a dollar per year over every dollar you have in your account.

And you can maintain an account for monthly payments, just keep its balance at almost zero. Pay your bills and take out the rest.

Force the FED and ECB to print ever more for bailouts.

Pay cash only. Don't support their cashless society. Liquidate all your paper assets, both to blow up the system and to minimize your own exposure to the implosion.

Let them squirm and lie ever more transparently with every new bailout that they need to force upon us. Let them show their hand. We're not going to 'repay' odious debt.

We're not afraid. We don't need them.

Let them eat cake.

Makow comment:  If the government represented us, it would take over the national bank and spend the money into existence or loan it interest-free.

First Comment from Essel

his bank run story is, in my humble opinion - I live in France - a hoax for all kinds of reasons. Indeed, some have spoken but it does not mean that the mass of GJ (YV) is ready to do so. One of these reasons is that, in France as elsewhere, the functioning of banking and monetary systems escapes almost all people. One must be wary of what RT is launching and the many sites under the influence of Moscow. They practice a form of demoralization that consists of pushing the people of the target countries to exaggerate the faults of these countries and no longer believe in them. Curiously the extreme right easily falls in the panel. On the other hand, if we look at how the police forces were piloted, we see that at the very beginning, they were protecting the GJ from disgruntled motorists at the roundabouts, leaving them with impunity to block traffic illegally while now that the mayonnaise is taken, it is the (very) violent repression which is on the program. Media personalities like the "philosopher" Alain Finkielkraut explicitly call to shoot the protesters, which is unprecedented. So everything was done to achieve mutual hatred between the GJ and the police. As a result, I think we should expect in the near future (tomorrow or later) to extremely violent events with probably dead. This will justify, if not martial law as some have said, at least a strict regime with deprivation of major civil liberties. We may allow ourselves to think that this was one of the goals of Operation GJ. It should also be noted that fuel taxes are forgotten and that communist phraseology is becoming more and more dominant ("class struggle", etc.).

This is a good article from Anthony. I've been saying the same thing on my own web site for 20 years. I closed my bank account in 1997 and I haven't regretted it for a second. People unthinkingly assume that they need banks. You don't NEED banks. They need YOU. 

Taking most (or all) of your money out of a bank is a logical way to stop banks from lording it over the public. If a large percentages of the public took 99% of their cash out of banks and either kept it themselves in a SAFE location or invested it in tangible assets, you would quickly see a few things happen immediately: Banks would start offering REAL competing interest rates on savings accounts and simultaneously drop the monthly Ripoff fees for checking accounts (without maintaining a continuous balance of over $1500 per month or whatever the deal is).     

As Michael mentioned, the problem the JWO has in controlling and enslaving 7 Billion people is that there are so FEW of them, and so MANY of us. They NEED your cooperation to enslave you. Same goes for Google's censorship and blacklisting tyranny. I NEVER use Google to search or use Google Chrome for that matter. I don't want to help them to MONITOR and censor me. 

Answer?  STOP using them in large enough numbers - switch to using on a  24/7 basis - and they will start back peddling on censorship in a heartbeat!  The ONLY solution is to DRIVE them out of business, not just punish them. 

The same applies to every billionaire JWO internet "convenience" outfit that tries to put onerous rules or conditions in place to coerce you to forfeit your privacy or play ball with the JWO takeover and enslavement agenda. STOP using them and find a competitor or CREATE a competitor, like the guy who started GAB!

Anthony Migchels doesn't get it: money is the key to the enslavement of man by the central bankers and elites. The solution is to create a living setup that does not use money, barter, or credits, where everything is free, and there are no people ruling over others, which is love and wisdom in action.

Free energy technology, advanced technology, and healing technology and cures for diseases are all suppressed by the bankers and elites, which would solve most of man's problems. In the elites' distorted thinking, they would rather rule in Hell than serve in Heaven.

Take your power back that you have given away to psychopaths that want you dead, enslaved, compromised (physically, mentally, energetically, emotionally), or corrupted.

Unfortunately, you can't beat the banksters at their own game. They print the money, make the rules, and control the bread.

A run on the banks would create instant inflation. Where money is plentiful goods increase in value and prices.
The Yellow Vests have no leverage in this game. The banksters can simply implement a "bank holiday" at any time.

I wouldn't advise the Yellow Vests to test the bankers; it could backfire very easily.

George said (January 11, 2019):

Of course it could be very effective. The question is rather what the effect would be. If Yellow Vests start the run, others will probably join in out of panic to salvage their money. The consequences would be unpredictable.

Tony B said (May 13, 2012):

Anthony is so right about quiting the banks. As a young man I had a brother-in-law who insisted that I needed to "establish my credit" and open a bank account, which I did reluctantly as I had, from the beginning, dealt in cash without any problems and couldn't see how banks could give me anything better, simpler and more logical. Shortly, my checks for bills owed were returned with notice of no funds. I had deposited my paycheck on Friday and written and mailed the checks on the following Monday. After forcing the bank to make the bills and late charges good I closed my account - forever. If that is "establishing one's credit" they can have it. I'll take care of my own debts, and my own gains, thank you.

Later in life, when I studied money and met with and discussed the issues involved with a goodly number of similar thinking "patriots" I was still the only one that dealt strictly in cash without having any contact with banks other than the cashing of checks others dropped on me, such as payroll checks when I could not force my employers to pay me in cash. Even Liberty Lobby and later AFP operate through establishment banks and issued me checks. At one time my signature was even on the payroll checks of Liberty Lobby as the proper officer of the corporation. Those facts are literally insane and very discouraging as to ever making proper corrections. If right thinking people will not live what they know to be true and proper economically, there is absolutely no hope politically as they, too, just like those in complete ignorance, finance their own destruction by dealing with and accepting the criminal theft of a portion of their gains or just earnings by bankers.

Of course it is not easy to deal only in cash anymore, the banks have made certain of that. However it is a necessity for anyone who would be economically free. Patriots, quick to whine about every gain they thus furnish their enemies, need to put their wills where their mouths (pens, keystrokes?) are. Only then will they have less to whine about politically.
