Thursday’s day of action throughout France in defence of jobs, the purchasing power of wages and social services, called by the eight major trade union federations, brought an estimated 2.5 million workers and youth onto the streets of some 200 cities and towns. Some small towns reported the largest demonstrations in many years. Workers went on strike in great numbers, as did high school and university students. Opinion polls indicate that up to three quarters of the French population support or sympathise with the strike.
Hearing this broke my heart, and i teared a little bit, im not sure if it was the tear gas, or it was the words of an oppression nation. these were the words of the people screaming out for help, when none arrived, there were the words of a very brave woman, one i regret not meeting, and shaking her hand to say thanks.

The thing is though is that it's really easy for everybody to just say that we need to stop it. But how? I ask. You can't just say you're going to stop something as huge as this and then wait for something to happen.
I suggest everyone get in touch with their inner self. The people we are against have no connection to the spiritual universe. That is why they are the enemies. They are completely disparaging towards common people because of their own inner evils. The truth is that people on a good path will have the upper hand in the end, only if we search deep inside and embrace our full capacity as conscious beings.
When wolves roamed the arctic and great planes for years they were forced to adapt to the conditions and predators threatening them. Because of doing this, they developed abilities that made them the supreme species in their entire environment. Right now we are being threatened by massive forces that call for one very serious development on our part. We need to survive. And adaptations came into fruition because of species' need to survive. What will we need to change about ourselves? We will need to advance our consciousness to the next level, so we can leave our evil, slimy leaders in the dust.

Before you get a couple hundred stars for that post, let me remind you that protests go on in this country all the time without any violence at all by the police.
The Tea party protests for example. You never hear about police action at those now do you? That is because Tea party protesters don't go around smashing windows and setting dumpsters on fire.
So it makes me wonder if it's overbearing police or is it people trying to start a riot and getting just what they asked for?
