🇫🇷 Macron's Yellow Vests

:fr: Macron's Yellow Vests


If demonstrations on this scale had been taking place in the UK for the last 3 months do you think it would be news across the EU?


Maybe? At the start I’d say, theres demo’s every Saturday in London as our freedom of protest is probably the highest in Europe, what scale though, they started off with a bang but not so much now, my in laws are not too arsed now I think and they were when it started.


Why are they at the weekends?


Baz, that started out quite lucid but ended indecipherable…



Sorry mush, its Saturday, wait till later when I’m smashed…


Oh fuck,

Best I get drinking then - tends to help with translation



Maybe they’re all at right wing rallies during the week?
I wonder if we would be getting hourly updates from the BBC if Putin was suppressing dissent in the way that Macron is?


What are you on about?
Putin suppressed the pension protest.


My point is he’s not gassing them every weekend. On the 8th dec alone in france there were 1400 arrests and hundreds of injuries. How many dead so far? Still, probably no big deal.




All the while being bezzies with Saddam Hussein who won leader of the year award 1987…


And now Merkel’s yellow vests:



Are you against globalisation and the EU?


Pretty much.


Seems there’s a new kid on the block.

“an apolitical citizens’ movement”


Don’t show that to Goat, he’ll have a fit, his knights in shining yellow vests can do no wrong…


They look good don’t they. T shirts printed, professionally made banners. We’ll organised and funded it appears. Wonder who by.
If you’re still struggling to work out what the French are unhappy about, this might help.
