Are the protests spreading to Europe?

I am well aware that there have been protests in europe for the last 3 years.

But i haven't seen a protest changing objectives in as little as 12 hours and in a whole country.

I'm sorry but, Have you been off the planet for the last few years? Protests have been going on in parts of Europe for the last 3 years. Europeans are nothing like Americans. If you take their stuff away they'll burn down the neighborhood. We just sit around and whine.


The gap between the super rich and everyone else is a worthy thing to address.

Which really doesn't have anything in common with people trying to spend more than they have without any game plan.

But there have been protests aimed at taking down European leaders.-Italy witnessed this as well. The protesting has yet to stop in Europe. That's the point, so I'm not sure how you can say "they are spreading to Europe" when they have always been there. The Europeans have a pretty rich history of taking it to the streets.

Aye, I do agree with you on this point. Another issue I think that keeps the U.S. from emulating Europe with regards to protesting is the religious atmosphere in the U.S. Europeans are less apt to be religious. American's are more likely to be churchgoers. While this wouldn't seem to be a factor for a lot of people, I think religious people are less apt to rock the boat so to speak. There is also the whole "government ordained by God" bit. If you believe Jesus is coming back you aren't likely to worry too much about protesting either.
