Chaos on streets of Paris as "yellow vests" protests turn violent
The French president, Emmanuel Macron, will hold an emergency meeting of senior ministers on Sunday after central Paris saw its worst unrest in a decade on Saturday.

Thousands of masked protesters fought running battles with police, set fire to cars, banks and houses and burned makeshift barricades on the edges of demonstrations against fuel tax rises.

Many commentators and members of the public were particularly shocked that the protesters painted graffiti on the famous Arc de Triomphe.

That scrawled message, which translates as "The Yellow Vests Will Triumph" can be seen at the start of this clip.

‘Taxes, Taxes And Taxes’: Paris Suffers Worst Riot In A Decade As Anti-Macron Protests Roil France
11:57 AM 12/02/2018 | Video
Chris White | Energy Reporter


France weathered its worst riots in more than a decade Saturday as “yellow jacket” protesters continue turning parts of Paris upside down over concerns related to high gas taxes and the high cost of living.
French riot police closed popular tourist areas and fired tear gas as they tried to quell the chaos in the streets. At least 110 people were injured while protesters associated with the grassroots-driven demonstrations clashed with authorities and vandalized the Arc de Triomphe.
Much of the anguish stems from citizens’ disdain for French President Emmanuel Macron’s high gas taxes and overall war on fossil fuels. The beleaguered president denounced the violence in a statement crafted during the G-20 summit in Argentina.
WATCH:


″(Violence) has nothing to do with the peaceful expression of a legitimate anger” and “no cause justifies” attacks on police, Macron said Saturday night in Buenos Aires. The violence contrasted with protests from elsewhere in the country where “yellow jacket” demonstrators peacefully protested and erected road blockades.
Paris police said at least 110 people, including 20 police officers, were injured in the violent protests, which originated Saturday morning near the Arc de Triomphe and continued into the night.
Protesters meanwhile continue to air their grievances. “It’s difficult to reach the end of the month. People work and pay a lot of taxes and we are fed up,” Rabah Mendez, a protester who came from the French suburbs to protest in Paris, told The Associated Press.

“Our purchasing power is severely diminishing every day. And then: taxes, taxes and taxes,” Paris resident Hedwige Lebrun told reporters. “The state is asking us to tighten our belts, but they, on the contrary, live totally above all standards with our money.”
Macron enacted sky-high gas taxes to tackle what he believes could doom humanity within the next decade: global warming. But many French citizens see them as an example of the French president’s inability to understand the plight of the country’s working class.
The price of gas rose in January by 7.6 cents per liter in France and the price of diesel by 3.84 cents. To put that into perspective, 3.8 liters of fuel is equivalent to about 1 gallon of gasoline in the U.S. Europe is on the warpath against gas-powered vehicles. (RELATED: Denmark Wants To Ban Gas-Powered Cars, Even Hybrids)
Denmark’s government presented a plan in October to ding all such vehicles by 2035. The plan is to curb vehicle pollution and combat climate change. Macron, for his part, issued a freeze on any new oil and gas leases in 2017 and intends to ban all oil and gas drilling by 2040.

Macron Blinks – French Prime Minister to Announce Suspension of “Fuel Tax”…
Posted on December 4, 2018 by sundance
Breaking overnight the French government is attempting to stem the growing civil unrest by announcing they will suspend the plan to implement the upcoming fuel tax. However, the Yellow Vest protests have grown to personify much more than a new fuel tax.
The protests have morphed into a much larger anger about the influence of a disconnected elite political class, personified by President Emmanuel Macron, over the lives of the ordinary French citizen. The fuel tax was the last straw, the underlying issues remain.

(Via Associated Press) PARIS airplane — French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe is to announce a suspension of fuel tax hikes, a major U-turn in an effort to appease a protest movement that has radicalized, French media reported Tuesday.
Both Le Monde newspaper and France Info radio said the planned increase, which has provoked riots, will be suspended for several months. Philippe is also expected to announce other measures aimed at easing tensions, just three weeks after claiming that the government would not change course and remained determined to help wean French consumers off polluting fossils fuels.

Philippe will make an announcement later Tuesday to legislators from President Emmanuel Macron’s party. There was no immediate comment from his office Tuesday morning.

French protesters continue to riot despite tax delay, refusing to 'settle for crumbs'

French protesters, continuing their offensive despite the government’s announcement on Tuesday that it would delay increases in energy taxes, are insisting they won’t “settle for crumbs.”
Prime Minister Edouard Philippe announced a six-month delay in the fuel tax increase, which had been set to begin in January, and a freeze on electricity and natural gas prices until May.



The announcement comes just weeks after the country’s most violent riots in decades began on Nov. 17 in response to the government’s attempt to wean consumers off fossil fuels by elevating taxes.

"No tax is worth putting the nation's unity in danger," Philippe said in a televised address.
But the protesters show no sign of letting up, and officials expect more demonstrations this weekend.

Victory: Macron Permanently Cancels Planned Fuel Tax Hike After Yellow Vest Protests


NICOLAS TUCAT/AFP/Getty Images
5 Dec 2018536


French President Emmanuel Macron has given in to the initial demands of the Gilets Jaunes (Yellow Vest) movement and permanently cancelled the proposed increase tax on fuel after a negative reaction to a six-month deferment.
The Elysée Palace confirmed that the fuel tax hike slated for January, which sparked the Yellow Vest movement, would be cancelled entirely on late Wednesday following a massively negative reaction to Prime Minister Édouard Philippe’s proposal to simply defer the tax for another six months, franceinfo reports.
Clarifying, the palace told franceinfo the increase is not “suspended or deferred,” but “cancelled.”
The Elysée also confirmed the announcement to network France 24.
On Tuesday, representatives of the Yellow Vest movement said the temporary freeze on the tax proposed by the French prime minister was simply not enough. Benjamin Cauchy, a major figure in the movement said, “We will not be put to sleep by a moratorium, the issues are much wider than that,” and added, “the French do not want crumbs, they want the breadstick in full.”
Whether or not the cancellation of the fuel tax will end the protests is unclear as members of the movement have already called for a “fourth act” to take place on Saturday.


Eric Drouet, another spokesman in the movement, said before the announcement from President Macron, “A tax freeze does not change the living conditions in the immediate future.”
“It’s unfortunate but it’s the only way to show that a large part or even the majority of yellow vests do not agree with the measures announced, and it will continue until there is real change,” he added.
The movement has also begun to cite other issues of protest on top of the fuel tax, including the UN migration pact set to be signed in Marrakesh this month. The Yellow Vests have spoken about “replacement” and “chaos” if the pact is signed by the French government with many opposing the agreement.
The concerns echo statements from French writer Renaud Camus, author of the “Great Replacement” theory, who spoke to Breitbart London about the protests and said, “The problem is that the protesters themselves are so far too close to the picture, too much inside it, to realise that their fight is part of the general struggle against global replacementism, Davocracy.”

France's Macron scraps fuel tax rise amid fears of more protests, violence

By Samuel Chamberlain | Fox News


Riots force President Macron to reverse course on gas tax
The French government performed an embarrassing U-turn after violent protests against a new carbon tax forced it to back down; Benjamin Hall reports.
French President Emmanuel Macron has canceled a planned fuel tax increase after three weeks of nationwide protests that left four people dead and sparked the worst anti-government riot in Paris since 2005.
An official with the Elysee Palace told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the president decided to get rid of the tax, while Prime Minister Edouard Philippe confirmed to lawmakers that "the tax is now abandoned" in the 2019 budget. A day earlier, Philippe announced that the tax increase would be suspended for six months.

But despite the government's concession, protest leaders have said demonstrations are likely to continue with trade unions and farmers joining the fray against Macron's increasingly unpopular policies.
Jacline Mouraud, a self-proclaimed spokesperson for the so-called "yellow vest" protesters, told The Associated Press that Macron's move "is on the right path but in my opinion it will not fundamentally change the movement." She urged protesters to seize on the French government's weakness to push other demands such as a rise in the minimum wage. More protests are planned for Saturday in Paris.
On Wednesday, France's largest farmers' union said it will launch anti-government protests next week after trucking unions called for a rolling strike. A joint statement from the CGT and the FO trucking unions called for action Sunday night to protest a cut in overtime rates. France's transportation minister agreed to meet with truckers' representatives on Thursday.


Gas tax hike to be suspended in France amid violent riots
French prime minister expected to announce a suspension of fuel tax hikes that provoked a protest movement.
The FNSEA farmers' union said it would fight to help French farmers earn a better income but would not officially be joining forces with the "yellow vests" — protesters wearing the high-visibility vests that French motorists are required to keep in their cars.
French police have cleared most of the fuel depots that protesters had blocked earlier in the week, but fuel shortages continued to hit parts of France on Wednesday, with hundreds of gas stations affected. Demonstrators were also blocking toll booths, letting drivers pass without paying, to press demands that ranged from higher incomes and pensions to the dissolution of the National Assembly, France's parliament.
Macron's popularity has slumped to a new low since the first demonstrations took place on Nov. 17. The former investment banker, who has pushed pro-business economic reforms to make France more globally competitive, is accused of being the "president of the rich" and of being estranged from the working classes.


'Yellow Jacket' riot engulfs Paris
Paris riots being called the worst in a decade; Trace Gallagher reports.
At Tolbiac University in downtown Paris, students took over a school building and classes were canceled.
"We need taxes, but they are not properly redistributed," protester Thomas Tricottet told BFM television. "We obviously need to fight against this."
The high school students' FIDL union called for a "massive and general mobilization" on Thursday and urged France's education minister to step down.
One student was injured during protests at a high school in Saint-Jean-de-Braye in north-central France. BFM said he was shot in the head with a rubber bullet but authorities did not confirm that. Julien Guiller, a spokesman for the regional school administration, told The Associated Press the student was expected to survive.
Since returning from the G-20 summit in Argentina over the weekend, Macron's actions have done little to reassure protesters that he is listening to their concerns.

He has refrained from speaking publicly about the protests and has largely remained in his palace residence. On Tuesday night, the young leader was booed and jeered as he traveled to a regional government headquarters that was torched by protesters last weekend.
Four people have been killed in the unrest since mid-November. One activist said Wednesday that he fears more deaths if Saturday's "yellow vest" demonstration in Paris goes ahead, and urged Macron to speak out and bring calm to the nation.
"If not there will be chaos," said Christophe Chalencon, a 52-year-old blacksmith from southern France.
He told the AP that the French public needs Macron to "admit he made a mistake, with simple words ... that touch the guts and heart of the French."
The Associated Press contributed to this report.

After the paramedics, came Les Pompiers.
The other day French paramedics blocked roads with their vehicles, today Les Pompier faced off against the French police forces, and offered a stirring rendition of La Marseillaise.

Macron swore never to give in, he gave in, his days are now surely numbered, and if he goes it will be a huge blow to the crumbling EU.

How soon before the cops relent & join the protests ?

‘Great Violence’ in Paris Anticipated as Police Staff Join Macron Protests


7 Dec 2018717

The French government expects the Gilets Jaunes (Yellow Vest) protests in Paris this weekend could be more violent than ever, despite President Emmanuel Macron buckling on fuel tax hikes.
The Élysée Palace, seat of President Emmanuel Macron, announced to French media they are expecting “great violence” on Saturday as Yellow Vest protestors have announced “Act IV” of their nearly four-week-long protest against the Macron regime that was initially sparked by a rise in fuel taxes, franceinfo reports.
According to the Élysée, they expect “a hard core of several thousand people” to arrive in Paris on Saturday with the intent to “break and kill.”

The government is taking the situation so seriously that they have ordered a general mobilisation of every police officer nationwide for Saturday including doubling the number of officers in Paris.
Rumours had also circulated on social media of the possibility that Macron has ordered the French military to be present in Paris on Saturday with some posting images and videos of what appear to be armoured personnel carriers being pre-deployed. The planned presence of armoured vehicles, a first since 2005, was later confirmed by the government.
The security for the public transit systems in the French capital will also be totally mobilised with the Paris public transport company RATP already planning to divert or cancel dozens of buses and other forms of public transit going to the Champs-Élysées, the Opera, and several other areas of the city.


On top of the regular police forces and Gendarmes, around 500 officers of the Directorate for Combating Irregular Immigration (SDLII) will be called upon and the Department of Local Security in Greater Paris (DSPAP) has also said their entire staff will be available to help.
The U.S. embassy in France has also put out a demonstration alert for Saturday’s protests saying, “Demonstrations may become violent, resulting in damage to property, including overturning vehicles and setting them on fire. Police responses may include water cannons and/or tear gas.”


The embassy recommended that Americans and others should avoid the protest areas, “shelter in place if in the areas affected,” and notify family for their safety.
While police have been called on to help quell the expected violence in the French capital, many are showing signs of sympathy to the Yellow Vests and their demands.
The Police Union Vigi Ministère de l’Intérieur has not only expressed support for the Yellow Vest movement but has called on members to go on an indefinite strike starting on Saturday, and join the Yellow Vests.

“It is time to organise legally and to be in solidarity with them, for the benefit of all,” the union said and added, “We know that we will have wounded and we fear to have dead among us.”
The strike will not affect active-duty officers, who are not allowed to strike by law but will impact support and administrative staff.
“Without the technical assistance and cooks, the companies of CRS [riot police] can be immobilised. Without the administrative assistants, services can be closed. Without the state workers, the maintenance of buildings and vehicles can no longer be done,” the union said.

While last weekend saw intense amounts of violence within Paris, vandalism has continued in the last several days, including in the department of Puy-de-Dôme where 95 per cent of all the motorway speed cameras have now been destroyed.
Vandalism and destruction have also been directed at tax collection offices across the country in recent weeks.
On Tuesday night, a tax office in the commune of Riom in central France was firebombed and only a day before a treasury office in Saint-Andiol, located near Avignon, was also firebombed.


Over the last three weeks, other tax offices have also been targetted, including the office in Limoges where a tractor was rammed into the front of the building to block the entrance and in the city of Cahors were Yellow Vests blocked entrance into the tax building and wrote “stop the racket” and “Merry Christmas and Good Taxes” on the walls.
With 67 per cent of the French believing that taxes are “too excessive,” tax collectors say they are now becoming fearful for their safety. In Poitiers last week, 200 tax collector staff were forced to flee the Yellow Vest protestors with one remarking, “The crowd screamed ‘fascists! collaborators!’ What is the next step? The guillotine? The scaffold?”
The tax officials are not the only ones fearing for their safety according to a source close to the presidency who said that all non-essential ministerial staff have been told to stay home on Saturday. “Everyone is scared. Fear for the stability of the institutions, for the continuity of the State, for the French, for our lives, for France,” the source said.
President Macron has already been confronted in public by Yellow Vest members while visiting the commune of Puy-en-Velay earlier this week. When the French leader attempted to greet the Yellow Vests he was met with shouts of “Démission!” or “Resign!” and was chased by Yellow Vests as his convoy attempted to leave the area.

While the original goal of the protests, to end a hike on fuel taxes, was met by Macron earlier this week, the Yellow Vest movement has burgeoned into what some have deemed as a true populist movement.
Breitbart London spoke to French author Renaud Camus and he claimed that the protests were borne of a much deeper problem in France.
“The problem is that the protesters themselves are so far too close to the picture, too much inside it, to realise that their fight is part of the general struggle against global replacementism, Davocracy,” Camus said, referring to the globalist elites who meet at the World Economic Forum every year in Davos, Switzerland.
He also noted that the protestors were “exemplified by the fact that practically all protesters belong to the indigenous, colonised, invaded, conquered people, the ‘natural’ French people.”
In the face of the past violence and expectation of more this weekend, 72 per cent of French still remain supporters of the Yellow Vest movement.

French government appeals for calm as it braces for more 'gilets jaunes' protests
The French government is appealing for calm as they brace for more protests this weekend after weeks of violence.

The Eiffel Tower and other landmarks will be shut down in Paris and nearly 90,000 police are being deployed in cities across France.

What began as demonstrations against fuel tax rises, have become an anti-government movement that threatens the presidency of Emmanuel Macron.

French Prime Minister Eduaord Phillipe said he understood why some people were frustrated but he also warned those protesting simply for the sake of violence.

"We have information as well as the experience of last Saturday — a great number of individuals are coming to Paris not to protest peacefully but to confront, to attack the forces of law, to attack a certain number of symbols and that is very shocking.

"I have heard this in the last few days and in the last few weeks, it is true that this is about the expression of anger, that is understood, but also what I find striking is when you see someone who says that one should march to Elysee we understand very well what is meant by that," he told France’s national broadcaster.

Support, however, for the continuing movement is seemingly high.

Student protesters in cities across France who have been complaining over education reforms for several weeks have now declared support for the 'gilets jaunes' (yellow vests).

A video surfaced overnight of police forcing students to sit on their knees with their hands behind their head — something which has caused outrage across the nation.

700 students placed under arrest in France
700 junior high school students for one day (18.12.06), 140 in Mantes la Jolie quartier of Val Fourré, a no-go zone, where this has been filmed.

The students were having a Technology course outside for security reasons. They burned diverse materials, like cars, prior to debate on the subject: "Is flammability a physical or chemical property?". Unfortunately it seems some policemen didn't understand what was going on and reacted over aggressively.

The French government reacted to these intolerable images immediately and president Macron promised that the entry level in the police will be raised to avoid any further miscomprehension and that everything should be fine and back to normal in France from now on.
