FRENCH REVOLUTION: Protests Rock France And Demand Frexit As French People Back The ‘Yellow Vests’
The Gilets Jaunes or Yellow Vests have taken to the streets of Paris once again. Despite President Macron announcing a moratorium on the fuel tax increases which acted as the spark that ignited the flame, they continue to demand his resignation.
8,000 officers and 12 armoured vehicles were sent into Paris to meet the protestors who are raising a variety of issues such as the need for higher wages, lower taxes, easier university requirements, better pension provision, etc. Some are carrying banners demanding France leave the EU.
The protests are about as popular as Macron is unpopular with 66% of French people backing the protests and a whopping 80% saying that Macron’s concessions are “insufficient”.
Macron has been hailed as the ‘saviour’ of the crumbling EU and has expended considerable effort in a bid to rally support for it amoung the French people. He unleashed: “an army of volunteers, including his ministers, to knock on hundreds of thousands of doors around France and 26 other countries, asking them what they want from the EU.” Now it looks unlikely he will be able to save himself as he faces a no confidence motion in the French Parliament on Monday.
