Yellow vest movement[edit]

Charrette-Labadie, then a 22-year-old, emerged as one of the early spokesperson in the "yellow vests" (French: gilets jaunes) movement.[1][2] She was one of eight official spokespeople.[3][4][5][6] This group was announced on 26 November 2018.[7] During her time as a spokesperson, Charrette-Labadie was contacted constantly by people in the movement asking for updates as to what had been accomplished and by members of the media seeking comment.[3] She was also being contacted by members of many political parties who were seeking to align themselves with the yellow vest leadership.[8]

Her involvement predated the 17 November 2018 protests, when she served as a local organizer in advance for Act I.[4][9] She got involved because she felt like she could not sit idly by and do nothing.[8] Most of Charrette-Labadie's activity took place on Facebook.[4][10] As a local organizer, she was part of a group of protesters who lifted toll gates in Brives on 17 November 2018.[4][9] Early on, that same week, Charrette-Labadie also participated in protests in front of the tax office in the city.[4][10]

Charrette-Labadie was in Paris around 25 November 2019 for a meeting with the government, where she served as one of the representatives of the movement.[4] After consulting people on Facebook, she and other representatives said they had two things they wanted the government to do: create a citizen's assembly and lower all taxes on people.[4] Her participation was criticized by others in the movement, including local Cana leader Christian Lapauze who said they were not consulted about any demands and the representatives had no legitimacy.[4][6] On 27 November 2018, she was one of six yellow vests activists to participate in a LCI program called "The Great Explanation" (French: La Grande explication).[11]

In late November, a photograph of Charrette-Labadie circulated that confused her with a friend of Emmanuel Macron. A conspiracy theory misidentified her, suggesting that Macron, through a female friend, had infiltrated the highest levels of the yellow vest movement.[5]

Charrette-Labadie announced she was retiring from the movement at a national level on 28 November 2018 at a press conference in Brives, saying, "I was tired of it, I was tired and I did not want to fight for people who do not deserve it."[1][3] By the time she made the announcement, five of the original eight spokespeople had also resigned.[3] On 29 November 2018, she was invited by France's Prime Minister's office to participate in a meeting with other spokespeople at Matignon.[3] She also participated in a meeting at the Ministry of Ecological Transition with other representatives. The group emerged disappointed.[12]

Since the start of the movement and 7 December 2018, Charrette-Labadie appeared on BFMTV, France 2 or TF1 a total of nine times.  This tied her for third with Laëtitia Dewalle amongst women acting as media spokespeople, and fourteenth overall.[13]

Charrette-Labadie continued to participate in the movement at the local level after withdrawing from the national movement.[1][14]

Political beliefs and activism[edit]

While Charrette-Labadie self-identifies as being a bit to the left, she has stated that she does not belong to any political party.[11][10][15] Her involvement with the yellow vest movement was her first instance in political demonstrations.[8]

Background[edit]

Charrette-Labadie is from Corrèze, New-Aquitaine.[16][7] In 2018, she was working as a waitress.[1][17][16] Charrette-Labadie was spending almost €200 a month on fuel just to go to work.[10][16] She would stay at work between shifts on the same day in order to avoid the extra fuel expense of returning home.[8] By the end of 2018, Charrette-Labadie was unemployed.[18]
