French Farmers Upset...dump Manure on Government buildings.

Recommended Posts

French farmers dump hundreds of tonnes of manure on the streets and spray city building with slurry in day of protest.

 

Revolting French farmers dumped hundreds of tonnes of manure and rotten vegetables on the streets as well as spraying a council water treatment office with slurry in a major day of protest.

Members of the French Farmers Union (FNSEA) and the Young Farmers Union (YA) held demonstrations over worsening food prices as well as increases in the cost of fertiliser. 

Farmers complain that sanctions with Russia over the ongoing Ukrainian crisis has led to collapse in the price of cereal, milk and grain.

Not so rosy in Paris ...at least one media source reporting the truth. Water cannons and tear gas the scene of the day on the Arc De Triumph.

“ The French are sick of Macron and his fuel tax increases in the name of global warming. 

They’re being forced to pay more for diesel, a fuel that was once heavily encouraged by the French government!

Macron’s green agenda is killing the French economy. 

Many of the protesters are saying that Macron is a president for the elites and that he doesn’t understand the lives of regular people who are struggling to get by. 

But the international media is glossing over this fact. They love Macron, they love the theory of manmade global warming and they can’t stand the idea of people, especially the French, protesting for small government.”

And yet, all of this is but a fraction of what would be required should those that love it actually want to hit their own targets. The magnitude of the effort required when compared to the feebleness of the effort being applied is what truly staggers me. I am now absolutely convinced that those who want it won't want it once they get it got. People in Ontario can't even stick to the 90 kph speed limit... when I see them doing that, perhaps I will take their lamentations and "call to action" seriously. Surely that is even easier than light bulbs.

I can't help but wonder how the farmers would feel about disgruntled crop dusters spraying their pastures with roundup.

As long as the Sunshine, Diversity and Fairy dust politicians are in power around the world, common sense solutions will never be implemented.  Their present agenda of taxing people to death, making life increasingly miserable while they are alive, will eventually blow up in their faces...literally. The push back is just starting. The momentum is evident..in Canada it will start in the west and move eastwards.....tick tock...tick tock

People want it, they will vote for it, but doing it is a different thing entirely. Look at Weight Watcher enrolments in January ,people sign up in droves and drop out in droves.

January 2 is always a crazy day at the gym with new members in new workout togs; it lasts until the first week of February then everyone is gone. Next up is the influx in May when people want to get ready for the beach; that lasts about two weeks. After that, it’s the influx of mothers in September who’s kids have just started school for the first time; a few of them last about a month and are gone. For some reason, October brings out the newly separated and recently divorced who are looking at getting back into the dating scene again… that only lasts a couple of weeks …. then we start the cycle again and it repeats itself year after year.

OK, you are likely wondering if there is a point in there somewhere, right? The point is that I’m now ready to call it. The Paris Accord is finished and there will be no consensus on lowering emissions other than the feel good stuff (that doesn’t matter) like light bulbs and such… commitment to the cause has left the gym and their Lululemon gym togs are on Kijij; offered for sale as a “worn once” item. It’s All over and people in Ontario will continue driving 120 in the 90 zone.

What Hitler failed to do with soldiers....destroy Paris....Trudeau’s buddy Leftist Snowflake Macron is achieving through taxation....... Like Canadians, the French are waking up and starting to realize their huge failure at the ballot box last year.

Jaydee, I think you will find that most of the violent protesters are the same ones who were violent in other countries and do not represent the average citizen.

The French economy has been badly hit due to three weeks of 'gilets jaunes' (yellow vests) protests, said French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire on Monday.

 

Le Maire said that sector revenues, particularly retailers, hotel chains, high-street stores, and restaurants, have been hit by between 15 and 50%.

 

The 'gilets jaunes' movement started on November 17 on social media as a response to hikes in fuel prices and has since become a wider protest of social inequalities.

Riot police had a tough time controlling protesters on Saturday who wrought havoc in Paris' fanciest neighbourhoods, setting cars on fire, looting shops and cafes in some of the worst riots the capital has seen since the 1968 student protests.

However, the 'gilets jaunes' have no defined leadership or an official group, which has made it harder for the government to engage with them.

So who are the 'gilets jaunes' and what do they want? Euronews gives you answers to some of the pressing questions about the rising anti-government movement.

How was this group born?

Discontent was triggered by the government’s measures to keep increasing a direct tax on diesel, a fuel commonly used by motorists in France, as well as the carbon tax. Protesters see these as disproportionately affecting those who use their cars to get to and from their jobs every day.

To add to this, French President Emmanuel Macron suppressed a tax on wealth, which only applied to people who possessed taxable net assets of more than €1,3 million. Macron's economic reforms are seen as favouring the wealthy.

Who are they?

The 'gilets jaunes' are a very heterogeneous group whose supporters span across age, job, and geographical region and comprise unemployed youth, retired people with very low pensions, and people who earn the minimum wage.

There are also far-right and far-left militants who've joined the protests. But some protesters have sought to distance themselves from these radical and violent fringe elements of the movement.

The movement has also become politicised by leaders such as the Front National's Marine Le Pen or the leftist Jean-Luc Melenchon — who've expressed public support for the group.

A French interior ministry spokesperson told Euronews by text message there were 136,000 protesters nationwide from which 10,000 were in Paris on Saturday.

A recent poll by Harris Interactive for French media RTL and M6 found that 72% of French people support the 'gilets jaunes'.

But 85% of people who participated in the poll were against the use of violence.

The media's reporting the  'yellow vest' riots have spread from France and are now occurring in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.

Apparently, everything's on the table, not just gas taxes.

It's also kind of interesting to see that both the Left & Right have enjoined in these protests.

Maybe even more significant is the fact the French police are in many cases taking off their helmets and siding with the protesters.

Is another French Revolution in progress?

Out politicians are willfully ignoring the wishes of the taxpaying portion of the population, which leaves civil disobedience / riots as the only vehicle available to get the peoples message through to their minders.
