Hmmm. Maybe this isn't about a gas tax after all.

Most likely about out of control taxes, open borders, and a huge ***** for a president. France has been swirling the drain for years. They've made it too hard for normal people to survive, and they've had enough. As Margaret Thatcher said, "Socialism is great until you run out of other people's money". Most of the world needs a complete reset, including here.

The governments in most countries in Europe need an enema.

these protests will be short lived.

for most of the protestors, this is more work/effort they've done than whatever real job they have. they'll get tired and quit, go back to their cushy job and call it a day.

Act VIII:


https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-...under-arrested

Quote:
More violence has erupted across France just days after French authorities arrested a key organizer of the Gilets Jaunes (Yellow Vest) movement.

After the protests began peacefully, Paris police deployed teargas and batons as protesters began to riot during the so-called 'Act VIII" Day of Rage, while marches were underway in several other cities across France and London. Protesters in Paris hurled objects at riot police manning bridge barricades over the Seine river, while garbage bins were torched along the upscale Boulevard Saint Germain.

Multiple videos at link. This isn't going away.
