Macron crisis

There have been four weeks of riots featuring 'the yellow jacket' protestors , and they're calling for a Frexit . Several groups have converged on Brussels and are calling the resignation of the Belgian PM as well as Macron .

The riots and protests have been continuing across France, seeing several hundred schoolchildren arrested as well being treated as insurrectionists with video of them on their knees being guarded .

Today , police are firing tear gas to control Paris much of which is locked down - shops are shut , while protestors are targeting EU buildings and Macron in particular .

There's plenty of video available here's a livestream . We'd expect Macron is getting the message . No need for that here btw thanks

I have zero sympathy for those protests. They're violent and stupid. They protest because the world is changing and they can't adapt. I have no car, because of the environment. Owning a car will be a thing of the past soon and all their attacks on the police, shops and monuments won't stop that.
If life is too expensive move out of Paris. Stop buying so much garbage and use public transport. But oh no that's Macron who is to blame. They elected him into office. It's not like he was advertising anything different than what he does...
Violent dumb #s level 30.

Seems to me the police are doing their best to make sure there is trouble , the protest started off peaceful but from what I've seen been turned violent by the actions of the controllers , arresting people on suspicion and using tear gas as crowed control method is doomed to create a response.

Macron is deaf to the message because the message is that he should go , rich boy done bad for the people of France , once again the Elite fail.




No need for that here btw thanks

There's a need for that anywhere a government stops listening to the people.

Maybe try a less emotional response . They appear to be wishing for a Frexit , that they've had enough of the EU as well while Macron represents it . Are you going to blame the French for being the French next ? There wouln't be any point in that if really this was all stirred up by the Russians would there . Its not out of the question . Take a more historical approach

Macron is Louis the 16th Reincarnated, He comes across as a rich spoiled asshole. If Macron fights the People, Macron will lose.

The protestors should move to a cheaper place, get new jobs etc etc.

If they could, they bloody would have, wouldn't they?


The rulers are just carrying on taxing people for being alive.
Tax cars and say "Well don't use a car then." Trouble is, there is no alternative for many people. Public transport either won't get them to work nor allow them to do their grocery shopping once a week...You ever tried carrying a week's worth of stuff from the shop, getting on a bus and walking home? I have, it was all but intolerable and I am physically much more able than the average person.


Things like this will keep happening until there is a real change in how we are governed.

Absolutely! The plebs have no business having cars, private transportation and the freedom it gives is only deserved by the rich and powerful.
The rest of us can walk.

I think people who are not in France seem to overlook the idea that it could be them in that situation.

If Americans all of a sudden had to pay $20 for a gallon of gas, just as an example, and protested for better...would they be called protesters or enemies of the state??

Thats what I find scary when looking at France...this could happen anywhere and the media could just brand the voters as the enemy.

This could happen anywhere....think about it?

Why do these common people think they should be able to live in rural areas and drive? That should only be reserved for the elite in society as the people need to sacrifice for climate change tax scams.

www.nbcnews.com...



The first signs of social unrest emerged in late October, shortly after the announcement of a new tax on diesel fuel. The tax is part of President Emmanuel Macron’s big plan to tackle climate change. For French people living in rural and peripheral areas of the country, people who depend on their car to live and work, this tax was the last straw in a series of fiscal policies seen as unjust and favoring the upper classes. In response, fed-up citizens organized blockades on roads, roundabouts and highway tolls around the country.

They want a more equal political and fiscal system, including the reintroduction of the tax on the mega-rich (from 0.5 percent to 1.5 percent, starting from incomes worth more than €800,000), which Macron abolished after his election. Crucially, they want Macron, also known as the “president of the rich,” gone.

Indignation about the government’s response shot up even further after the arrest of 153 teenagers at a high school in Mantes-La-Jolie, near Paris, on December 6. The youth were forced to kneel down, hands on their heads, in a humiliating posture, as police officers filmed and commented, “What a well-behaved class.” They were also detained without a lawyer, which is illegal for minors in France. The scene has since been reenacted by high school protesters around the country.

Something similar probably would have happened here if we (USA) had stayed in and adhered to the Paris accord.

The ancient world would cringe if they saw and wonder why no one had swords to defend themselves.

Praise the second amendment!

Bet there's a fair few Frenchies wishing they had voted for LePen rather than Macron now.

There's a thought that ought to wake people up.
