seems there is some confusion i'll share an update, hope it will help.
Actually the french movement is a melting pot of many different groups that at some point choose to march side by side in order to shake the political
structure hence to have results, we are having a hard time with the unification of this mouvement by the way.
this movement started quite some time (years) ago, got silent and started again with the strenght you most likely know, just to make it clear 80% of
the french population actually support this movement.
to give a bit of context :
you may work you're ass off and you're not having a descent living, while the gouv spend mindelssly our hard given income, for exemple Macron is
actually giving 20 bilions per year thanks to the CIE, we the people get nothing from this, that money just go to some big corporations. with 20
billions you could clearly do some intersting stuf...
the unemployement rate is exploding, that clearly doesn't help.
Most of our minister have resigned since the election of Macron saying the direction given was an absurdity and they refused to keep participating /
supporting this politics.
rape is now not conidered as a crime anymore, no matter your age you have to prove your were not concentent, i insist, no matter your age. more over
the education system is now forcing our child to learn ( and parents cannot make their child skip this, it is mandatory ) , to learn what sexuality
is, there is a big depravation in the scholar system, and most child psychiatrist made a petition sayng we were opening the door that will lead the
future generation to be sexually amoral.
Those 2 things together have clearly putted a lot of tension socialy speaking, once again french people said no to this... yet this is now part of the
the people asked for monsento and roundup to be banned, it was audited between midnight and 4th Am, no one were present except the 84 scumbag that
voted for, so we have to keep it....
The people asked to remove the palm oil or reduce it, the governement did otherwise
taxes are comming on every thing to a point were we cannot be confident about any possible future, we ask for a taxes cut and our "smic" (minimum
salary ) to be augmented so we could relaunch our economy by having a financial activity it is as simple as that.
our president do not want to listen, escaping his role as a president and hiding behinf the EU so we joined together to force our voice to him / to
them, that lead to the actual movement of the yellow jacket. movement that is now spreading to belgium and luxembourg and more.
At this point other revendications have added themselves
teacher that do not agree with what they are forced to teach and the number of student in class that no longer allow a proper teaching, students who
want a reform regarding school exams, liberals (medical staffing for instance) that are working with worse and worse condition, even cops are starting
to join in, and so on...
We now include in the many revendication the right to have our own financial system and this is now becomming a major request, to leave the EU and it
will most likely (i hope so) extent to the ONU and OTAN but that part is still not sure.
We wand our republic to change and adapt to a participative model to ensure that we the people will be listen to. this is a more and more pushing
if that were to happen some wishes for interpol to interfere in order to cut the debt that were builded between bankers and / or politics. but thats
at the moment a minority. (though they are more and more present on social media )
French gov were for the sensorship on internet - the so call "fake news" while we are for the freedom of speech and the freedom to access any given
information. ( FOIA )
so you see we are quite a vast movement yet we are not showing a strong unity as little by little people join and add their stuff. globally the above
summ thing up. we are now trying to stabilize this so we can keep pushing more and more, at this point it's nearly do or die as we will not back
We are not against immigration nor muslim however immigration shouldn't be done at the detriment of our economy / country, the marrakesh treaty was
signed without the concent of the population in a time of national crysis where our elite no longer represent us, so it added oil to the fire if i may
also if we are to speak about immigration the EU is weak in that aspect we have seen that already. that's why germany and italy are more and more
aggressive on that part of their politics, we (French) want to accept people only if we are able to. how can i help someone if i'm not able to help
myself in the first place ?
In term of religion the french movement bypass religion and politics as we have setted our differences apart, we are all siding out there to right the
So no this is not about muslim nor about any other religion this is about the people making their voice and maybe, maybe changing their democracie.
Once again i hope so.
Obviously it is the french people not a specific group nor an external one, so no it's not made or oriented by any religious group, it really is the
This is not a revolution as we want to sort it out peacefully but it might very well escalade quickly if things keep going the way they are.
Thanks for reading, hope that cleared things up, i wish you good night.
