On the occasion of the historic events sweeping the UK Parliament in the past week, this week's Global Research News Hour focuses on the fate of the EU in the face of a contentious debate in the UK Parliament, and the Gilets Jaunes (Yellow Vest) movement that has overtaken the imaginations of the French population seeking alternatives to the EU order as manifested by Emmanuel Macron. Our first guest, economist and geopolitical analyst Peter Koenig examines the fall-out from Theresa May's devastating defeat last Tuesday the 15th, and elaborates on the past present and future of the EU project, including the prospect of military integration. Our second guest, Paris-based Diana Johnstone provides background and analysis of the Gilets Jaunes, reasons for its success, and the efforts by State and media authorities to suppress it.
