I don't suppose there is any legal way to prevent people from withdrawing their own money, but you can bet your bottom dollar that the French
authorities will be keeping an eye on this, as will the banks, and that if there is the slightest sign of it happening on Decmber 7th, the banks will
shut up shop, with the assistance of the french riot police, and remain closed until it gets sorted out.
Fair play to the French - they're not shy in taking to the streets when they're not happy. Unfortunately it always seems to end with a rumble with the
police, which reflects badly on the protest.
They are on the right track, though - work together as "the people", and take the goverment and the banks on - head on.
It's about time the banks were taught a lesson. Worldwide, they were bailed out to the tune of billions by us, the people, and yet now despite posting
profits again (after receiving our money), they still have the purse strings tightly closed when it comes to lending, either for mortgages or for
business loans. They should be forced to realise who saved their skins last year, and repay the favor accordingly.
