Another Saturday, Another Day Of Protests In France

France 24: Fires, tear gas as French Yellow Vests stage first Saturday protest since Notre-Dame blaze

French Yellow Vest protesters set fires Saturday along a march through Paris to drive home their message to a government they believe is ignoring the poor: rebuilding the fire-ravaged Notre Dame Cathedral isn't the only problem France needs to solve.

* The Paris police headquarters said authorities detained 227 people carried out more than 20,500 spot checks.

* Police fired tear gas and stun grenades amid tensions at a march of several thousand people from France's Finance Ministry toward the Place de la République plaza in eastern Paris.

* The violence contrasted sharply with the peaceful atmosphere at another march through Paris, where demonstrators mourned the Notre-Dame blaze while also keeping up the pressure on President Emmanuel Macron, who is expected to unveil new policies aimed at appeasing the Yellow Vests in a speech on Thursday.

I was wondering if the Notre Dame fire would bump up Macon in the polls and maybe end the demonstraitons or lessen them.

I have my answer.

The empty suit is dooomed. Trump might have beleived his presidency was over, when the deep state manufactured the Russian collusion story out of thin air. In reality is Macron is effed, because he is a socilaist, who made a fake party to fool enough voters to get elected to a 6 year term. New party same old socialist recipe.

Have you any idea what the yellow jacket protests all about?
what is going on there is going on in many places, not the protests but the reason for them

The problem is lack of jobs and the high cost of living.

In some places it is due to socialist polcitians and in other place it is due to Islamicists politicians.

In the US the socialists dn the Islamicists have a home in the Democrat party and want to double whammy the U.S. They want high energy costs and thus high cost of living, high unemployment so they have people begging and voting for them in perpetuity and women barefoot, in the kitchen, and preggers.

And do not claim the socilaist and Ismalicists are not in the Democrat Party.
