Right, there are always a few morons in the crowd of decent people, and the media of course focus on these, even though they aren't there for the cause. Anyway France has high taxes, you can only squeeze the middle class to a certain degree, and France introduced a wealth tax for rich people driving many out of the country with their monies.. Good luck in fixing that.

Since it looks like you only know a quarter of the reality, i gotta tell you something Those who came to destroy things have been a problem for years here, they are just some random groups of young retarded hood guys tryna be ballsy, wee call them "casseurs" ("breakers" litteraly) and most of them don't even support the movement, they just come to fuck it up. Yellow vests are pacifists

Oh we do, in fact we know very well, Denmark is full of unions causing annoying strikes, we often have strikes, most I don't agree with but they usually get their way. But I agree that Danish guy here is oblivious. High tax + high inflation is a toxic combination.

Worst part is you should have seen this coming from a guy like Macron, all these virtues politicians are full of it.. it's not just in France, they are all over the world now and it's a little bit frightening to be honest as they don't plan for any aftermath of their agendas.

Well he wasn't elected by the majority of people, because the amount of votes for Le Pen (the other candidate at that time) combined with the "blank" votes (when you say idk who I'm voting for, I'm not sure if this is correct English) were superior to the amount of votes for Macron Honestly at first during the first months, it "looked" promising, he seemed to be somewhat honest (ik that politicians aren't) and relatively decent He lost all credibility after the massive strikes coming from "SNCF" (the national train company), lost even more credibility after the Benalla affair, and now raises taxes He basically does everything that people don't want Ps: Sorry for my bad englando

no u should only act peacefully, u just have to act more radical in a peaceful way if anything, like cutting major roads for example, not just some roads. if u act violently u gonna summon putin "strong man" figure upon yourself, dont be stupid. Djodjoo, there're peaceful revolutions, have u ever heard about velvet revolution? for example in armenia literally a year ago, ofc there will be some retards and some people getting hurt, but u gotta act as peacefully as possible to get to the best outcome, read "198 methods of nonviolent action" by gene sharp. ofc your government will skew the reports to make it seem more violent than in actually is, that's the point that im making, they will try to solidify power by saying look at this dumb ass violent people, we gotta make sure they dont burn cars or destroy property and u gonna slide into a shithole that every authoritarian country is, mine included ofc.

I'm American actually. Trump is shit. He's done nothing for the country except embarrass it on an international level and tear it apart on a national level. The economy and unemployment were rising long before Trump. Obama had to fix it after the Republicans destroyed it. Trump's policies have done almost nothing other than help the wealthier get wealthy(gee who would have thought?) He changes his opinions of major issues daily based off of the reaction he gets from his redneck supporters who haven't realized we aren't living in 1985 anymore. He lies constantly. Literally daily to the American people. Also have you seen the stock markets over the past two months? And did you know that the only president to have a more significant impact on the stock markets is Obama after fixing the dead Republican economy he inherited? Do you have any investments in the stock market? I highly doubt it even though you talk about how that makes him great. Like all of his delusional supporters. You know, the one's who think spending billions/trillions of dollars while forcing taxation on the American people and pushing the country further into debt to build a concrete wall along Mexico is a brilliant idea.

1. Nice fake flag. 2. Trump is a good president you're just an emotional wreck 3. He has done nothing but DEFEND our country in the form of trade deals and things like Nafta, United Nations, and China. He has even basically made North Korea stop producing Nuclear weapons. 4. Obama didn't "Fix" unemployment or the economy. The only reason it was good was that of the housing market crash right before he took office in 2008. 5. Why should wealthy people pay more in taxes? They're educated wealthy people worked hard for their money rather than depend on taxpayer dollars that their money is going toward. 6. Yeah isn't here there to support the ideas of the people that voted on him? WOW ITS ALMOST LIKE THAT'S WHAT HE WAS VOTED THERE TO DO 7. He doesn't lie the American people don't have the same information he does 8. Yeah the stock market does down after every single trade deal ever that has ever been signed like its just how it goes. The Stock market is up like 300 points for the year so... 9. Just repeated yourself, running out of bullshit ideas I see! 10. I don't have investments in the stock market because I am 16 :D 11. I'd rather be called a deplorable by your queen Hillary Benghazi Clinton, not a delusional supporter ):. 12. The border wall would only cost about 20 billion dollars and that money could easily be taken out of stupid government agencies such as planned parenthood funding. 13. We spent 3.8 Billion dollars in 2016 on a border patrol agency. The wall is an investment that would pay for its self is less than a decade! Everything you've said has been backed by basically thoughts and feelings alone, if you'd like to make a real argument with statistics I'd love to debate you on that as well!

The network that has been outed for literally fabricating lies daily to it's viewers. The network that Republican congressman and representatives have come out publicly shit talking for months now? "Provides no facts or evidence to support your claims and I debunk what you say and then, sure enough, your feelings get hurt" You're describing the way our President behaves every single day.. Won't matter in the end, will be fun watching him go to jail for the rest of his life once his term is over. The plea deal he will have to make to save his ass will be monumental.

I watch CBS and Fox News I try to get my dose in a relatively moderate media. Idk where you are finding "Republican congressman and representatives come out publically talking shit for months now about fox news. Idk where you are getting that information from. You started to talk about policies and I told you how he made them better (Provided evidence) and yet you still haven't provided any factual information to this discussion... Go to jail? That's funny, Liberals and Democrats have been saying that for like 3 years now and not one lick of corruption has come under Trump, just the people around him. "Failed Presidency doesn't make any sense considering as I have stated the lowest unemployment rate ever and stock markets are at an all-time high because of the trade deals President Trump has made. I mean dude Idk how you are continuing to try and debate me, but its not really a debate considering you still haven't provided me with a lick of proof to back anything up that you've said, even me looking up some of your claims which I've found nowhere

Not a Socialist retard. 16 year old calls himself conservative republican states facts from Fox news, lmfao. "I watch CBS and Fox News I try to get my dose in a relatively moderate media." Not if you're watching Fox you don't. "“The stock market is at an all-time high,” he boasted. “Think of that – over 50 percent since my election. Fifty percent. People – the 401(k)s – and they have 401(k)s, and they were dying with them for years. Now they’re so happy.” Yesterday, as the major U.S. indexes dropped sharply for the second straight day, the president fielded a reporter’s question on this, and was content to keep bragging. Q: Mr. President, you have talked a little bit about the markets. The markets are down again, today. How long do you think this correction, which you said was coming anyway, is expected to last? TRUMP: Well, we’re still up 40 percent for the period of time. So, I mean, the markets are way up over what they were. Part of the problem is that the president is throwing around bogus numbers that he appears to have simply made up. As CNBC’s John Harwood noted late yesterday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average is up 26% from Trump’s first day in office through yesterday’s close. That’s obviously not close to the gains the president has pointed to, and it’s also short of the 38% increase we saw over a comparable period in Barack Obama’s presidency. Making matters slightly worse, the bulk of those gains came last year. Looking exclusively at 2018, the DJIA is only up about 1% after factoring in this week’s losses. And just to twist the knife a bit, it’s worth emphasizing that Trump’s own actions – his trade war with China, his aggressive public criticisms of the Federal Reserve – have likely contributed to the latest market losses." When Obama left office the unemployment rate was at 4.9% It is currently 4% a .9% difference. Nothing to boast so incredulously about. Stop taking credit for obama's administration. Also: "Obama had the unique disadvantage of taking office in the midst of the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. More than 4 million jobs were lost in his first year in office, on top of the 4 million lost in George W. Bush’s final year." Hey kid go tell your Fox lies on reddit. I know you don't understand these things yet since you literally do not live in the real world yet, but you will one day.

Trump does a lot of good in my opinion but the guy seems bat crazy and not trustworthy. He eg. says one thing at meetings and the afterwards tweets about the opposite. Regarding immigration though I think the US needs Trump. If the demographic of any country changes too fast then there is going to be cultural clashes, decreased trust between citizens and all sorts of problems. I doesn't matter who you are and in the US this is all too evident as well as in Europe. Someone shared this video where illegal immigrants express that they have the right to be in the US and that they'll take over soon, because they outbreed everyone else. Crazy stuff. youtube.com/watch?v=lJaAfBOya6Q

Just because all of the major news networks in the US is extremely biased, doesn't mean that it's the same in the rest of the world. I also find it incredibly absurd that it's mostly Americans who solely get their information off of FOX News who have that opinion. If you want neutral news on Trump and base your own standpoint (which most Americans are completely incapable of) then use Reuters. If you want a nuanced view that slightly favors European viewpoints in some aspects, BBC. I find that if you need to get your political standpoint from a biased source like FOX News or CNN, because you don't know enough about politics to make your own standpoints, then you shouldn't be talking about politics in the first place. Americans treat politics as if it's some war between two sides instead of forming their own opinions and viewpoints... it's the entire reason why your outdated political system is becoming increasingly shit and misinformation is becoming increasingly accepted.. as long as it favors your agenda.

Every newspaper is colored by the opinion of the editor in chief, the culture of the paper and hired staff. None of those you mention are neutral. BBC for instance has censored many news articles when reporting on a situation didn't fit their world view. Best thing is to read as much as possible from all camps and have a strong critical sense about all of the medias.

Yes, newspaper. Reuters is a news agency, not a paper. That is the big distinction here as Reuters mostly sell their stories to newspapers rather than needing to alter the story and headlines to cater to a certain demographic. Furthermore, I never said that the BBC was neutral. It's quite important to keep the distinction in mind. Of course there's no purity in this world, but the closest you get to raw news is Reuters and AP.

but we still live in one of the best country and ppl manage to find excuses frenches we dont joke even if one small piece of liberty is taken
2018-12-02 17:13
Maybe they wanna keep it as good country and are tired of the constant cuts from the poor. Too bad our politicians are idiots.
2018-12-02 17:14
yeah xd but we are idiots to keep electing them everytime
2018-12-02 17:27
But here they cut to poor and middle class to give it to the super wealthy class. The oil taxe was just the drop too much.

That's the marxist mentality that got you in the shit you are in right now. Every tax is bad, even if the ''super rich'' get taxed the whole economy will be affected, especially the poor since they are the weak link of the chain. Let's just hope france doesn't think that the thing that got them where they are now (government intervention) is the solution to their problems, if they remove macron and go further to the left it will be catasthropic.
2018-12-04 08:17
That's quitte the opposite of a marxist mentality in fact. France is the world champion (literally number one, before USA, before other country in the world) in term of dividend retribution today. And when the country was way more in a left redistribution of the wealth, people were way more happy, there was way less employment, etc.. This are facts, I could gave you the exact numbers but I'm quite lazy right now. Meanwhile what you say is based on ideology and don't stand on any real exemple. Note that I don't support their protest, because I'm quitte happy to live on the benefit given by my shares. Yet, I'm objective enough to be able to explain and understand their claim and to see facts as they are.

France is the EU's left test ground, every shitty idea they try on france first. Look how even a very rich country could get fucked by retarded economic policies. Unemployment is high for decades, people literally want to kill each other and redistribution of wealth is synonym for killing economic growth. If those are facts and you have the exact number, prove it. Prove that france was more left wing before and that it was better then. Marxism is an ideology, correctly analyzing the economic situation with reason is the exact opposite of that.
2018-12-04 08:40
Again, your post is based on a shady idea you have about EU and France, still 0 facts in your post. Left economical politics in France were all made BEFORE the EU constitution. Today, Portugal is way more left than France, and so is Spain, Sweden, etc... On some subject even Germany is more left than France today. On societal scale, Denmark, Sweden, Portugal, are more left than France. You want number? Fine: in 1980 the bottom 20% of the population was sharing 4.3% of the total income after taxes, while the top 20% was sharing 43.7%. In 2005, it is only 3.4% vs 50.4%. On the same date 5% of unemployed people in 1980 for 9.5% in 2005. Since 2007 crysis it accelerated widely, so I could give more recent and way worst numbers, but since I don't want to bias these facts with an already made excuse such as "you can't compare before and after the crysis" I won't.
2018-12-04 09:10
Its not even about poor class. Its about 75% of population. But you get this when you have to support all people who dont want to work. Bro i live near paris and i have to pay 600 euro rent for a 25 square meter apartement. I know a guy who lives near me in 3 room apartement and pay 65 euro rent because he dont work and have 3 kids. GG la France.

because they voted for a leftist government and a leftist president and now are angry that leftists are fucking up their country just as they usually do and then they (leftists) blame everything on far-right movements which are non-existant and dont have to do anything with whats going on there right now lol
2018-12-03 22:53
you got it wrong. macron is in fact right wing, always has been. the leftist media did a tremendous job with their propaganda presenting macron as if he was left leaning that's why people often get it wrong. economy wise le pen is probably more left wing than macron is. that's why it eventually erupted and it was kinda to be expected. not that france had much choice, in a sense it was an impossible election. no good candidates.
2018-12-04 04:41
Le Pen is not more left wing than Macron is on an economy and social scale. Her program for the election was as you said, but because her number 2 was. It allowed her to build a base of real leftist, such as former communists etc. Allowing her to get 25% of the voters. Before she and her party was pure right, and now that this number two is gone she is coming back to it. She is not the rightest of her party, she is a bit less than her father and her niece, but still. For instance, this very week, she said the same as Macron about not increasing the minimum wage, she said the same about taxes on high incomes, she said the same about medical care, etc...
2018-12-04 07:40
they are both populist imo. le pen doesn't really care about anything other than immigration and nationalism while macron probably doesn't care about anything other than being president. i might be wrong of course but that's the impression i got.

Yeah but still, police isn't for/against new tax law, they just have to keep the streets calm etc I eman if you really need to be violent - do this to politics. BTW what's your views on this situation? Sorry for English Im literally dying
2018-12-02 19:01
I agree with you about how dumb it is to fight against the police just to do so, break monuments, etc.. First you have to understand it is a minority of these protesting people who are doing so. Most of them are anarchist/naive people thinking they can make a new violent Revolution, etc.. Second you have to understand that this violence always serve the governement : protesters are showed as dumb, violent, irresponsible and so their claims become. That's why, at least in France, and we have policemen confirming it, the government (not just this one, but also the previous ones) always order tactics to start/aggravate this violence. Exemple : Close the street in from of them so they are stuck. The unaware backline of the protest keep going forward. At the front they are smash. They panics trying to escape, so they start to get past the police blocking them. If they don't panic fast enough throw a few teargas grenades to make them suffocate, between this and the fear to be trampled on you can be 100% that the panicing crowd will try to escape no matter what, including this little police lane in front of them. Voilà! Protesters are violent against the Police.

I would go to their tombs and thank them personally, but they are spinning so fast I’m afraid I’ll get hurt!
2018-12-04 07:43
1. Ofc everyone speak about it but they're the only ones that have the balls to confront their gov. And no thats not what they'll get, tell me, do you even know what they want and what they are fighting against? Also you're generalizing saying thatthey're breaking things. Dont be such an ignorant. 2. You should thank them instead of mocking them, dont forget that they've completely made you.

They say it's all about gasoline on international media but they are so wrong. It is mainly because they keep taxing everywhere without a real reason. Like the progressive tax on gas... They are claiming it is for ecology yet they voted against the use of some pesticides which are really toxic for humans and nature. And they voted against due to some lobby. And it's always in that fashion, the middle class has to pay for everything while the rich are getting away with more rights or free stuff
2018-12-02 17:40
I dont care about french things normally, just last 10 minutes I google some stuff about it. Are they finally getting rid of the globalists before its too late for france

2018-12-02 17:52
Taxes are too high for middle class, the tax on fuel was supposed to go toward ecology but none of it will go to it, public service is slowly getting dismantled because of no founding for years (they'll then come and say "look, its not working !" and privatize it), rich people are getting richer (the fastest growing in Europe) while putting their money in tax havens, Macron is telling people to get a fucking job and work hard to buy themselves a suit while theres a lot of unemployement and some people can hardly make ends meet, etc... The whole system is fucked, our states are getting weaker and weaker while private companies gain power everywhere on the planet. Competition between states makes it so that companies pay less and less taxes while the missing money is taken toward middle class whos getting poorer.
2018-12-02 18:02
thats not only in france, everywhere is middle class most fucked
2018-12-03 22:35
I know dude, I just had to vent. Every year 80 billion euros is robbed by companies and put in tax havens in France. Macron never adressed the problem. Apple, Amazon, and many other pay 0 taxes in France. They take money from poor students, tell people to work harder, privatize highways wich made a lot of money for the state and now that its privatized its getting more and more expensive. They never go after people that fuck us because they are fucking afraid of them, cause they can go from country to country and just tell us to gtfo. I'm pissed that they give us just enough to enjoy life and shut up. They are on a thin line, giving us just the bare minimum. Just at my work, they make 14ke out of every employee, we barely see any of it. They then sell the company for 40Me. Thats our work, our sweat but this system makes so that if you are in charge you make millions and others eat the crumbs.
2018-12-03 23:54
So the question is, why don't people of other country do the same? It's in french culture to raise and protest : they did it for the french Revolution (which is our national day) But also it worked many time in our history: they got the 40h of work that way, they got the sunday day of that way, they got the saturday day off that way, they got the paid vacations that way, etc..
2018-12-04 08:05
Macron is a servant of white collar criminals (bankers) who make millions out of nothing. Still he points the finger to working class and unemployed to find a job.

It's hilarious when leftists see their country go to shit due to government intervention and they still find a way to blame it on capitalism. Your taxes are going up for no reason, your social democracy is collapsing, it's not capitalism's fault, but the lack of it, since your government is getting bigger and bigger, the people evading tax are heroes, the problem are the communist scum lobbying the industry with the help of the government with some bullshit excuse like ''ecology''. Government intervention is the reason france is like this, the answer is not more government, but less.

But why did you elect macron in the first place?
2018-12-04 08:02
Because voters don't know what they vote for. They don't take time to educate themselves about what they vote for. And when they discover it, they cry and protest.

Which macron policies are benefiting you? Do you really think more government intervention would be better for french people? Only powerful corporations with political power benefits from a leftist government, they finance the political campaigns and in turn the government lets them lobby the industry with government regulation, creating monopolies. In practice you have working people financing burocrats and politicians who only cares about their pockets, with the majority of the population blinded with political propaganda that says lies about climate change, equality, etc.
2018-12-04 09:19
His flat tax on financial income, the end of the wealth tax, the end of the exit tax (my wife is from Switzerland), etc.. With these policies, my taxes are cut by half (53% less exactly). In France corporations can't finance political power it's illegal, as simple as that. And even if it is not perfect, the state is imitating the maximum cost of a campaign, the maximum donation and is refunding party for their expense if they reach 5% or more. Ofc there is other way to influence our government, but not this one. Again you talk about thing you don't know. In practice, in France, monopolies are not for private companies, if there is a monopoly, it becomes an nationalized company. Since I was a "burocrat" and now a "financial" I can assure you that the left candidate we have in France would be a pain in the ass to influence.

So you benefit from tax cuts, that's great, don't you think less taxes overrall would be better for everyone, instead of shitty government assistencialism? Are you saying huge corporations respect the law? In countries like france where the government is big, corruption is certain. I don't talk about things that I don't know, you are very naive for thinking that these kinds of things happen inside the law. It doesn't matter if it's private or national, monopolies are shitty because they only exist with government intervention, it's not by the market's demand, so you have an overpriced, low quality product. Since the left demands more power through political means, corruption runs in their veins, regardless of what they appear on the outside. The same economic freedom that you are enjoying through tax cuts, imo it's what france needs right now. The people are protesting against tax raises if I'm not mistaken, I hope this movement doesn't get stolen by some leftist political party to push for the very same thing that is being your downfall; socialist policies.
2018-12-04 09:50
First I never said there is no way to corrupt french representative. Quite the opposite when I said 'other way to influence'. Anyhow that's not the point. About your sentence on nationalized monopoly. Again here in France, we had the electrical company who was a monopoly not so long ago. Guess what : there were less problem with lower price. It is not always the case, we have the opposite exemple with internet price (sort of). So with your ideology your are straightforward, meanwhile facts are less black and white. Same about left and power. I was about to say our let is not your left but somehow about power and corruption you seems to have totally forgot Goulart. About their protest, there is a part of tax cuts yes, but because they are too poor to pay them. That's why they ask for tax cuts or wage raise or both and more taxes for the wealthiest. Because the problem is not about taxes for them, but equity. People like me earn more and more (Macron or not) and with Macron we pay even less taxes meanwhile they earn the same, are more concerned by their future such as will more probably lose their job/pension and pay more and more taxes. Anyway you seems to be absolutely fantasized by Hayek so I'm not here to convince you otherwise, I'm just saying : - Macron is absolutely not a leftist - french system is far different than yours - you should get facts about something before commenting it thru your ideological bias. - personal interest and general interest is not the same

The price of baguettes is getting higher but the pay for making baguettes isnt. Mainly macrons environmentalism adding carbon taxes and people cant afford shit is a leading cause to these riots. First macron says: "I aint negotiating with no broke ass mamas" Then macron says: " ok we can negotiate", but then later he says: "I was gonna negotiate but then you said you gon kill me so we will destroy this rebellion by force maybe dont threaten me next time peasants" All public figures get death threats, its just an excuse to ignore the revolters.

a bunch of arabs , blacks and weak whites complaining and crying about prices when they're earning really good already making at least 40k / year and still crying fuck off expected from smelly frenchies tho edit: btw i really hope they'll have a civil war , that's what they deserve
2018-12-04 09:18
Most of these protesters earn closer to 15/20k than 40k. It can be already a lot for many countries but in France, the poverty threshold is at 12k (or close). So after taxes, a lot of these poor foxes are barely above what we officially call poor.

I live in Italy, they say that the protests keep going (and are destructive in Paris) and they say it's because of the new tax on fuel, but they don't see the bigger picture I think. I mean a small tax on fuel is just a pretext to the whole thing. I am very keen on knowing what is the bigger picture according to you. Are the protesters blaming only Macron's administration? What do you think is going to happen and why do you think he'll soon resign?

2018-12-04 14:36
Ofcourse they do. But France is known for that kind of Protests. And Personally i think that Protesting-Spirit in France is very good for a Society. Would be healthy for germany aswell but people here are sheep or to lazy to go out on the streets for basicly anything. All we have is May 1st where the left burns some cars every year out of boredom and general discomfort. Or some Alt-Right Marches on Mondays with their Grandparents walking down the streets with their Flags and Umbrellas when its raining thinking them walking down a street talking and shouting some nonsense will change something.
2018-12-04 14:48
Funny how May 1st is labeled as "Fête du travail" (Labour celebration) and its meaning now is the total opposite of what it should be aka "Fête des travailleurs" (Workers celebration) (in France at least).
2018-12-04 16:46
true its the same here in Germany its called "Tag der Arbeit" (Day of Labour)
2018-12-04 16:47
its called İşçi Bayramı in Turkey. Which translates to worker's holiday
2018-12-04 17:42
Good that it didnt lost its meaning. In France it was named like that during the collaboration in 1941 by (far) right leader Maréchal Pétain whos slogan was "Work, Family, Country" lol...

But violent protests like this should not happen. If people got up and protested peacefully for a long period it would be better. Germany is pretty fine so nobody is protesting, the Situation especially digitalization, education, rail and train networks and workers rights is not good enough, far from good enough for a country like Germany. but everything is stable enough that nobody protest.
2018-12-04 17:39

Germany Benjir_V1 
The problem too is that stability should maybe not be the biggest possible goal. Our politicians sell guns to countries like saudi arabia because money is money. Our politicians don't acknowledge or try to improve the EU a lot even though Germany benefits from the EU the most. Digitalization was delayed, the leap away from coal was delayed, everything gets delayed because of stability. And stability we got, but at what cost? The next problem is: There are not a lot of parties that you could actually vote for. AfD is just a populist right-wing party, fear-mongering and relating everything to migration but in the core their agenda is basically comparable with the agenda of any other central party. (FPD, CDU) FDP is just a party for people who have a high income, they say things like "the 4 million people without work are just too lazy to work" and are also pretty populist. CDU is the most center party with catholic values incorporated into their center politics, they always stood and stand for stability (Thats what we got at least...) SPD once was a labor party but now its basically the CDU without religion and an ounce more left, no perspective and is going down the drain currently. Bündnis 90 Die Grünen is our former Ecology Party, they are moving more into the center and are on the rise right now. Because there are no controversies surrounding they are an easy choice to vote on, also because they havent EVER governed our country. Die Linke is just an left-wing party. Not as extreme left-wing as the AfD is right wing (we got the smaller MLPD "marx-leninist party" for left hardliners) but also pretty controversial and well, not really votable aswell to be honest.
2018-12-04 17:57
It should be Peacful right. But History has shown that Peacful Protest is almost Impossible. Either it has no effect in terms of there will be noone listening. Or it will be - depending on the Topic - forcefully dissolved. And at some point when it is impossible only a violent revolution accomplishes change.

India with Gandhi? The black civil rights movement? It is an idealist view for sure to think one should protest without violence but I think that that is the only way. Especially in our globalist world this should be a perfect thing. Protest peacefully and if they forcefully dissolve it get sanctioned. This sadly only would work in first world countries. No one seems to care about protests in Oil countries or third world countries. In syria the government used grenades and gas against the peaceful protesters but no one really cared so they also used weapons later which just made everything worse, but getting slaughtered by your own government and not resisting? Thats a hard thing to do
2018-12-04 22:45
Gandhi and the Civil Rights Movement worked because the other Side was willing to change. Also in the Quit-India-Movement of Ghandi there where Arsons, Sabotages and Plots against governmental institutions.. and while Gandhi might have been one reason for indias independance the more impactful reason was the ongoing riots between muslims and hindus in india.. which the British Government couldnt handle.

2018-12-04 17:36
I would be happy if a baguette can explain me something. When the riots first started the media said that it was backed up by the right wing. But the 42 demands made by the protesters are closer to left than it is to the right. Can someone explain this thank you
2018-12-04 17:41
It started in the (far) right sphere yes, but it spread way beyond that. And when I say far right, its not necessary the xenophobic part but just rural people that kind of got let down by liberalism and are just siding with the far right wich is the only thing they can relate to. Far right in france has a socialist economy policy since 5 - 10 years (it was the most liberal economic party before), racking up voters that the left / far left stopped considering 20 - 30 years ago with mass immigration and the growing middle and educated class. You could say they are kind of national socialists now (no pun intended -_-)
2018-12-04 17:55
and did the PS do anything about this?
2018-12-04 17:55
The PS is dead in France since the last election. Francois Hollande (PS) got elected in 2010 on a very socialist basis, saying things like "I'll settle hash finance" because he was losing voters to far left Mélenchon (France Insoumise / Partie de Gauche). He said that just to get some more far left voters. It worked but he never applied anything like it except a 75% tax that was just bullshit. He didnt even present himself in 2015. PS : last presidential election in France was : 20% Macron / Center - liberal socialism 20% Republicans 20% Far right / Marine Le Pen 20% / Far left / Mélenchon And some other 20% with communists, Socialist Party and some others.

Quite accurate, but many leftist were cheering to macaron (who didn't go to the election with the Patti Socialist but his own Parti) because he was close to Francois Hollande ideas and should be electable instead of the other leftist (many of Hamon electors and some from others) and only melenchon did a good campaign on the leftist side but he hasn't been able to get the vote of many of the potential leftist voters.

Not only, many of these people are in these Riots for many differents reasons. Mainly for the cost of the life, the elevation of the price of the gasoil price. Macron is modifying a lot a taxes, a lot of them incresing for some simple sings that are in the everyday life of mid-class and poor-class (for exemple: soda, tobacco, gasoil) and in the same time decrease taxes that touch richs and big companies. Don't forget that France is a country that obtain in the past a lot of social mesure by making Riots.

2018-12-05 17:57
I know that for some people, a car is a necessity, especially for those who live in the country side. Most of the people live in big cities that have good public transportation and the only reason they have car is their ego; they need it as status element and also because they are just simple lazy. If you don't realize we use a lot more than we actually need and this will lead to extinct of this planet. I think it's good that some people act towards better and cleanier world. Taxes should be rly high on gas, meat, cigarettes, alcohol etc.

Wtf I do realise that we need to consume way less but the people of the countryside and not from big cities are a big part of these Gilet Jaunes so they need car and gasoil to work, ofc there are taxes and this is normal but some taxes aren't equal and increasing again the tax of the gasoil made the people of all generation going in the street for many different motivation too.
2018-12-05 19:06
In France, about 22% of the people live in country side. The price of gas in France will raise a whipping 6.6 cents per liter!! And people are saying they can't afford it? 6.6 euros per 100 liters!!! What else is it about? “It’s often said taxes on diesel and petrol have never been higher than today,” said William Todts, the executive director of Transport & Environment, a non-governmental organisation. “The reality is that, in real terms, fuel taxes are about as high now as they were 20 years ago.”
2018-12-05 19:40
You really think the other 78% of the territory has great transport infrastructure ? More and more train lines are being closed outside of cities "Make an effort for climate change, share car and use metro" That's just a non sense, how do you bring your kids to school, go to work, do shopping ect ...you can't do EVERYTHING with transports, except in large cities. Some people just can't do without a car, so saying "lmao these plebs can't even share cars and use bikes" is just plain stupid. They expect people to use car less and less, without any alternative Some countries like the UK managed to freeze the cost during more than 10 years, France never did. So yeah ofc you think "lulmao it's just 6.6 cents" by the movement isn't about petrol, it's a global thing. This gas cost is added to tons of stuff that increased (gas, electricity each year ect, new taxes for companies and people..) This + no pragmatism from the government, they don't do much

They are not lying It's indeed a global hatred towards Macron, but the initial motivation was against gas prices

Not a word about this in Swedish media. Nothing. Like its not even happening or something. Total denial. Some dude or dudette just shed some tiny light but nothing else. Its more like an "oh they are not happy" than "its the beginning of a new revolution" Fuck the media. Any type of left or right media. Fuck them all to hell...

how funny ahah .... the movement grew in France thanks to facebook and twitter (which is ironic) But media are just LUL, trying to discredit the movement by saying it's all made of facists ect ... that people don't want to make efforts "for the climate change". It's just plain studity, and it's 24/7 on TV

Alright, it seems there are a few missconceptions of the whole situation around here : 1) Who are the people doing these riots ? It's a "bunch" of people the call themselves "Gilets Jaunes" (meaning "Yellow jackets", the ones that people wear like on construction sites for examples). They are usually people that have money struggles. Macron makes many laws in favour of the richer people, which already made this category of people pretty mad. What made the whole thing "Blast" was the increased price on Diesel (not sure how you say that in english). 2) What are they "fighting" for ? They want the state, the government to hear them, to realise there's people having though lives around the block, so do something to HELP instead of ignoring them and screwing them up even more. 3) Why did the whole thing go bongos ? This wave of gilets jaunes was initially a pacific movement, showing their anger especially by blocking roads (Just sitting there, not letting car pass, making a whole mess) and marching in the streets. However there's always these idiots called "Casseurs" (Meaning "Breakers"), and as the name implies, they come in just to wreck havoc, flip cars, rob shops etc... These people are NOT to be considered as gilets jaunes and are just a bunch of idiotic kids fooling around. Because of this mess, police forces (CRS) had to join in the rumble, upon seeing the whole situation was going wrong. This is what the police didn't do right : Using flashballs (wtf bro those are not even legal in any other country in Europe), "gaz lacrymogène" (gas that when it pops, makes in insane amount of noise and spills out gas that insanely aches your eyes, throat...). Many people then got mad, so started figthing the CRS, especially through removing bricks from the floor and throwing it at them. This is how the whole situation turned into some sort of brawl between citizens and police forces. 4) What's this whole thing with kids at school ? Meanwhile, in various schools around France, students are protesting against the new BAC (which is basically your A levels that you need to go into a university etc...), blocking schools and burning rubbish bins. When police forces came in, they threw stones at them, trying to send them off. But of course CRS ain't no joking around. Because of that, 2 extreme cases of injured students by flashballs were reported : there's actually a video on YT where you see the kid god shot in the right cheek, and it's absolutely demolished. Kid is going to spend his whole life mutilated. A girl as well got shot in the teeth, losing more than half of them. So yeah, this is the current state of France. It has many consequences such as shops and schools shutting down, in order to protect themselves and the students. The government however seems not to have reacted much though, despite all the ruckus. It's also the n°1 thing that all radio and TV channels talk about right now. By the way : Macron is not going down... This is not how things work in France. Don't start saying that Le Pen president would be a good thing either Please tell me if I've said something wrong, I'll be glad to correct it.
