That's how deep your point of view gets on the topic huh?

Crazy lefties huh? Nothing to do with the OBVIOUS social injustice of the ruling class and austerity huh?

Sheesh


Come to France and see for yourself.

Those smashing stuff up over here right now are from the extreme left and extreme right.

I wear my yellow vest with pride even with these dick heads pulling up paving stones to try and destroy what the REAL people who endure ongoing rising taxes are going through.

I don’t want a stupid argument with someone who doesn’t even live here so as I said earlier... come to Paris...

The extremist lefty Antifa black hoodies are making it difficult right now for us... as are the small minority of extreme right wingers.

Have to go as riot police are charging right now.

The French aren't as stupid as the average American


The average American is a total moron. At least the French have the sense to see that something is wrong in their society


Uhhh, are those EU flags they're waving? Seems counter intuitive....

I don't think I need to live there to understand the motivations of the protesters , I don't condone those who cause damage but understand why they do it.
It's not like the people of France are the only ones suffering the pain of the EU sanctioned Austerity program implemented by those who it doesn't effect , those who don't have to watch every penny that goes out.

Trying to find somewhere not to get squashed at the moment.

Eyes and nose burning because of the bloody CS gas.

We just left the Arc de triumph about 20 mins ago where the ultra lefties and righties are causing havoc.

Blummin mayhem right now.

You will not be alone.

Good luck with your protests Lagomorphe.
I admire the french spirit and how they stand together when it comes to the working man. Take care of yourself and stay safe, as the police and CRS do not mess around when it comes to protesters. I agree with your comments concerning the hoodies from the left and right. Its the same here in the UK ``When`` the people try to protest, its always messed up by these gangs of hoodies from the right and left. I guess its organised that way by the state which we have here. Plus we have the floride in the water here, whilst being programmed at the same time by the tell lie vision. Macron is doing to the french what the Tories have done here. Austerity, except the French are standing together and fighting back.
Stay safe mon ami et en avant viva la revolution.

Thanks for the heads up Irish, Ilu and Tarzan.

Got home ok last night (I live 2 and a half hours away from Paris).

Clothes and car stank to high heaven of CS gas.

Paris is a mess this morning and sadly I think that next Saturday is going to be worse.

I am sure there are many reasons people are protesting there

But I heard the impetus was a gas tax

It does seem worth mentioning that as usual, the poor people are the ones that have to pay for the elites to feel good about themselves being environmentalists

Makes you wonder how well increased gas taxes would do in other countries like the us

Emmanuel Macron is today holding a security meeting with government officials to consider imposing a State of Emergency in Paris.

Government spokesman Benjamin Griveaux told Europe 1 radio that a state-of-emergency declaration was a possible option. "We have to think about the measures that can be taken so that these incidents don't happen again," he said.


On Saturday, Mr Macron said the protests "had absolutely nothing to do with a peaceful demonstration of a legitimate unhappiness or discontent." He said those responsible did not want change, but instead intended to "wreak chaos".

This is a mixture of "Workers" and various "parties" also this has the fascists and nationalists who are in the middle of it as well, I know most of the reporting is "anarchists rioting" but there is a big and growing number of Nationalists who think this is the fight against "Globalism" and fascists also mixed with everyone else

Battles in the middle of Paris. People in yellow vests throwing Molotov cocktails .... ?
Sounds like a perfect excuse for Macron to declare martial law. Maybe he got the idea from Poroshenko ....
