French Revolution courtesy of Russia TV news. The truck drivers, taxi drivers, all sorts are violently protesting Macron’s huge ‘global warming’ tax. They are now fighting at the Arc de Triumph in the center of Paris. This is an open, real revolt. This is not students buggering about, these are working men who are against the wall. They face poverty and bankruptcy if this global warming tax is imposed on them. This is a fight to the death!
Here is a screenshot via Russian news, the battle has reached the Arc de Triomphe and the government shoots tear gas at the workers who are strong, very male and very, very angry. I know from experience that when too much tear gas is used and the government has been tear gassing workers now for nearly a month, you get used to it!
I used to say, ‘Thanks for clearing my nostrils!’ to the police back in the 1960’s. Here is a creative barricade about five blocks from the Arc:
It is now raining. Note the ‘global warming’ here: cold and wet. Right now, more and more tear gas is hitting the men, they are waving French revolutionary flags from the Napoleonic era. HAHAHA. I notice the illegal aliens are making themselves scarce.
Rain wrecks tear gas. The wind is blowing very hard suddenly as the storm intensifies. I see in one side street, lots of big rigs parked to block traffic. The big difference between student revolts and worker revolts is obvious: workers are hardened by a hard life, they also enjoy ‘manly’ sports and for fun, will get drunk, go to a game and pick a fight in that order.
Paris is now burning.
A car is on fire.
There is now loud singing in the distance as the workers revive their actions as the storm passes. The police resume using water tankers to hit the workers with water streams and thus, push them back from the Arc.
Workers are throwing the gas canisters back onto the military. The military with shields seem quite reluctant to move in, swinging. They know that if this revolt succeeds, they are cooked. So they want to be as little violent as possible.
Macron and his goons are pretending this is something that will go away if only force is used. People cease fighting in the streets and end up fighting all over the place, all the time. The people being affected by this fuel tax are many and very pissed off.
All this brutality is in the name of ‘saving the planet from warm weather’ which is insanity especially since the need to keep loyalty means following taxes on energy.
