The French Revolution began in 1789 with the convocation of the Estates-General in May. The first year of the Revolution witnessed members of the Third Estate proclaiming the Tennis Court Oath in June, the assault on the Bastille in July, the passage of the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen in August, and an epic march on Versailles that forced the royal court back to Paris in October. The next few years were dominated by tensions between various liberal assemblies and a conservative monarchy intent on thwarting major reforms. A republic was proclaimed in September 1792 and King Louis XVI was executed the next year.

One must sacrifice to get what one wants.
It's a two-way street and we forget we have to work to accomplish a goal even as a country, society, town...whatever.
I'm pulling my money by the way
I also read that they suggest putting your money in your local banks which could work maybe.... but, and I'm not sure, don't all the big banks own the little banks in some way by now?edit on 21-11-2010 by SlyFox_79 because: (no reason given)

this is what the bankers rely on is your fear of change,change is what we need,but not obama hype type,more like cantonas logical thinking ,it is very hard to fool this brave french man,(and thats coming from an evertonian)he is prepared as rich man to stand next to his fellow human beings and use his power as a personality and do/say something for the good,

Yes Cantona is great. I support Man Utd.
I talked with my father in law today and he told me it was a great idea but they will put a cash limit.
We need more time to think about how to do this properly. December is too soon, nothing is going to happen that will change anything.
Thats what I think anyway.
lol I dont have a bank account, I killed that machine for me its not there in my life.
But I will go with my family or friends and support them.

When I say about the crimes, yes we have to sacrifice, of cos.
But, you wont be saying the same if someone broke into your house, beat up your mother or father or anyone in your family and then, takes all your money.
