French authorities will deploy at least 8,000 riot police and gendarmes in Paris on Saturday, and 89,000 forces across the country according to the Prime Minister, as the Elysee prepares for "act four" of the Yellow Vest movement's violent protests against the Macron government.
French intelligence services have reported to the Elysee Palace - the official residence of President Macron, in light of "calls to kill" and "carry arms to attack" government officials, parliamentarians and police, according to Le Figaro. "They are putschists. We are in a coup attempt," said Le Figaro's sources.
Macron's administration has struggled to calm the protesters - initially delaying a planned fuel tax hike by six months, and then floating a tax increase for the wealthy. Thus far, none of it has worked.

Yellow Vest protesters recently told Russian state-owned RT that the government has lost touch with its people, and that they have to "put humane attitude first, and not the money." Another protester said that they "would prefer to be at work, than to find [themselves] on the streets shouting, hoping for nothing."

My brothers girlfriend lives in Paris a block and a half from the Bataclan.
I'm sure she is out protesting. Rich family,own a castle and several wineries but she is on the dole.
Only works when she needs money as an actress and writes medical articles.
In the early 2000's we had an argument......
She thinks the rich should be taxed at 90% of their wealth.

I told her anyone with a decent job or money would all move the fuck out of France.

In some way I see their successes as empowering. There's always a murmur of "it'll never work, we'll all just go to jail" among "revolutionaries." But, those murmurs may quiet if they see that the citizenry can enact changes through less than civil disobedience.

Wouldn't it be something if governments started to fear "we the people" again?

Looks like some of the gendarmes are sympathetic (towards the end of the video MV linked)

:thumbsup2:

It'd be even nicer if over half the voters who actually vote didn't prefer Controlists.

How can I help you, and/or make you smile, today?

The problem with being on social media, is that you know too many people that you don't know. (And yes, you can quote me on that. LOL)

I'm upset no one is quoting me any more in their sig lines. I need to say something stupid/crazy again. Let me get another drink so that I can work on that. ~golddigger14s

Fuel tax abandoned over riots.
Over 700 arrests so far, police driving in armored cars.
Fires all over Paris.
Geez
Just saw the news, thousands of those fuckers in the streets.

It’s a bit more than just fuel taxes. It’s a pile on effect of Paris-specific legislation and French government regulations.

Not a good thing, and the people are speaking.
