Well they have become the mos successful protesters of modern times in my eye.

Macron has caved in and given , without being asked, thefollowing.

An end to the planned fuel tax rises

7% increase in minimum wage i.e. 100 euros a month more

Planned  tax  increase on low income pensioners dropped

Overtime no longer taxed

Employers to be encouraged to give atax free end of year bonus


Plus some other things like listening to the Provinces!

He is not going to tax the rich more though!

Think what would have been achieved if theyhad rioted, protested more. ;D
Germany will smack his bottie because he won't be able to balance the books now.

I see that they are still protesting.

One action has been to take out 60% of Frances speed cameras.

As per usual where there is a chance to create chaos, Russian active measures are stirring things up. >:( >:( >:( Where I'm being very vocal on Twitter at the moment over #Brexit I'm also getting a lot of Russian Bots following me on there. :(

Sod all to do with Russia. People are just fed up with the globalists (May, Macron and Merkel) ignoring them. They have seen how Trump is draining the US swamp and would like to see the same in Europe. So would I.  :y

Like I stated where chaos can be created RU active measures are there from Ukraine since 2014 to the US elections & illegitimate election of Trump who special council Robert Mueller III is steadily uncovering, to many personal RU troll attacks I've suffered from actively supporting Ukraine against their invasion by Russia, which I'm old enough, ugly enough & know how to use psyops to see off, so don't bother trying to teach me to suck eggs. >:( >:( >:(

Oh, please. Do you think that millions of Americans had their brains rewired by the Russkies to vote for Trump? No. It was the start of the world rejecting globalism and the Deep State. There was no collusion, though your Russophobia seems to make you unable to accept that.

 

Again you are not the brightest bulb in the box of lighthouse floodlights. You clearly have no idea how the US voting system & electoral collage works. Government Intelligence services are called this where they employ the brightest & the best. I've got a grudging & great respect for Russian intelligence services of the GRU, FSB & SVR where they are the best in the world.

You don't need to millions of votes as the special investigator Robert Mueller is uncovering, you do this...

https://www.palmerreport.com/analysis/mueller-vote-rigging-scheme-nailed/15236/

It took swinging & gerrymandering of 80,000 votes. Where mobster Trump has been a Soviet/Russian asset since at least 1984 the time was right to leverage this asset where they squeezed him to stand as President. This is classic mafia tactics. 1. Exploit weakness (bankruptcy/give loans). 2. Own. 3. Squeeze :( The good news is that after this major corruption clearout of Western democracy will be much stronger & better for it. :y :y :y

BTW about 90% of Christopher Steele's raw intelligence report has now been verified & two Russians implicated as sources have died in unexplained circumstances. :-X :-X :-X

Well it's all still going on and 12,000 took to the streets across France today in what the French media have dubbed Act XIII. 

Apparently a photographer had his hand blown off by a 'desencclement grenade' which I think is a rubber pellet grenade!  :o  and also a group of Gilets Jaunes in Nice were prevented from crossing the border into Italy by Gendarmes. So much for free movement!  :-X  :D

Here's a report of events of the day from Le Monde as the UK MSM don't seem that interested.  ::)

Just imagine what it would be like if France were going through a "Frexit" process similar to ours.  :o

They probably will at some point and all hell will break loose, as Frexit will be involuntary when the Euro collapses.  ::)

I hope we are well out of it by then!  :-\

The BBC has a piece on it on their website today

I wonder how they calculate how many protesters.? When we drove up through France trying to find hotels off the beaten track you would see 5 or 6 yellow jackets on obscure junctions or roundabouts. Maybe they have officials that drive around counting them!
