The leader of the Yellow Vest protest movement in the United Kingdom was arrested Saturday after a peaceful protest against an anti-Brexit Member of Parliament (MP).
James Goddard, 30, is the leader of the Yellow Vest movement in Britain. The movement, which began in France and continues this weekend, has swept across Europe. It represents a populist uprising against the globalist powers that be in the European establishment.
Former Breitbart London editor Raheem Kassam posted about Goddard’s arrest on his Facebook. Kassam said:
Today, the UK proved it has well and truly transformed into being a police state operated only in the interest of the elite. The #YellowVestUK organiser James Goddard was arrested earlier for protesting at a Member of Parliament.
Just wrap your head around that for a second. Ordinary people go to Westminster to protest against MPs who are threatening to stop Brexit (specifically @Anna_Soubry) and end up being arrested. And no, they weren’t “threatening” nor “violent”.
The @metpoliceuk are being used by politicians from the Remain side (@Anna_Soubry and @SadiqKhan etc) to try and intimidate and quell any uprising by ordinary British people. If anything this is just going to make things worse. Our Boston Massacre moment.
By the UK’s standards, citizen journalists like @JamesOKeefeIII, Laura Loomer, and even Michael Moore would be behind bars. This transcends left and right politics. This is about basic freedoms, of which Britons currently have very few.
Anti establishment types will soon be seeking asylum outside the UK for fear of political persecution such as this. I am told the U.S. govt is already aware of James Goddard’s case.
Anna Soubry, the member of parliament who had Goddard arrested, was upset that he was protesting her in public. A video of the “incident” shows Goddard speaking with Soubry as she walked toward the Parliament building.
“Apparently MPs & politicians are meant to accept it as part of the democratic process,” Soubry reportedly said on Twitter.
Yes, Ms. Soubry. MPs and politicians are meant to listen to their constituents as part of the Democratic process. That is the entire job. You were elected to govern, not rule.

Pope Francis Prays For Coronavirus Relief in Unprecedented Empty Vatican Audience
The Pope appeared alone.
Pope Francis prayed that God would comfort Italy and the world in the midst of the raging Chinese coronavirus epidemic, appearing in an unprecedented Vatican audience in Saint Peter’s Square. Papal events at the Vatican are almost always filled with pilgrims and the faithful, but the ceremony overseen by the Pope was entirely empty on account of the strict quarantine imposed on Italy as the nation reels from an unmatched death count from the disease.
Imagery of the event revealed the striking emptiness of the Vatican square, the overcast and rainy weather adding to the solemn nature of the papal event.

“May God’s blessing come down upon you as a consoling embrace,” said the Pope at the event. “Lord, bless the world. Give health to our bodies and comfort our hearts.”
The Pope encouraged prayer from the faithful for those directly involved in the response to the historic health epidemic- healthcare workers, doctors, grocery employees, police and volunteers.
The Pope chose to deliver the traditional ‘Urbi et Orbi’ address at the event, a Vatican tradition that is usually reserved for Christmas and Easter. The prayer implied the likely cancellation of Vatican Easter proceedings, with the devastation caused by the coronavirus in Italy likely precluding any major gatherings within the coming months, at least. Reports indicate that the Pope will celebrate traditional Good Friday and Easter Sunday masses, but alone, in a manner similar to Friday’s papal appearance.
Catholic Sunday Masses have been entirely cancelled in Italy, a nearly entirely unprecedented development that speaks to the gravity of the situation in the disease-stricken country. The nation had its worst day in terms of casualties on Friday, with deaths rising to 9,134, with a total national count of almost 87,000.
