Cet article présente les résultats d'une étude sur les territoires dont sont originaires les "gilets jaunes". Dès le premier samedi de mobilisation le 17 novembre 2018, ce mouvement se démarque par son caractère local et sa couverture nationale. A partir de données inédites de la mobilisation sur Facebook, nous montrons une forte corrélation entre mobilisation online (sur Facebook) et o ine (blocages des ronds-points). Nous réalisons alors une cartographie ne et contrastée de la contestation. L'étude économétrique met en évidence le rôle de la mobilité pour expliquer les origines du mouvement, au travers notamment du passage des routes à 80km/h et des distances domicile-travail.
