Because they practice all the time. Just ask Naib, as he seems to get stuck in France because of protests/strikes when he has the misfortune of having to cross the channel.

Muso is not wrong, on both accounts. Striking is like a pasttime for the French and you know its srs when tyres are being burnt.
This one is just boiling over with the frustration of Macron. They wanted change (like all of Europe) but chickened out when there was LaPenn THEN they are surprised when they get more of the same since they voted in a Rothschild product, a Globalist, a Federalist. Macron has been screwing up on the domestic front all over the place... The EU elections in May 2019 are going to be very very interesting and depending on how badly PM-May screws the UK over I will either be watching it while sipping a cup of tea or Ill be screwed over

Although the SJWs around here are mostly commie/anarchists.

Just remember THIS is what they voted for. They had an alternative, one that liked France.
They chose a Rothschild clerk and are surprised when he looks after the rich and talks globalist/federalist rather than looking out for the French (but he won't stop arms sales to Saudi nor will he accept "migrants" while talking down on those that won't)

May next year should be interesting

It seems Macron has blinked, and they can save the planet some other day.

I really don’t understand why they don’t embrace and celebrate their opportunity to lead in the saving of the planet. They should supplicate themselves and give all that they have, and will ever make, to their superiors. I mean, the accord was named after their city ...

So much for setting examples.

I don't think him putting off these taxes for 6 months will actually stop this now, the French are on a roll now.

he has blinked some more
6month freeze of fuel -> permanent freeze on rise -> Wealth tax
https://www.reuters.com/article/us-france-protests-tax/france-dangles-wealth-tax-review-as-yellow-vest-anger-persists-idUSKBN1O40PQ



he is shitting himself and thus his stance of changing France is broken, his pledge to his "paris climate deal" cannot be met, his pledge to the EU budge deficit won't be met (will be interesting to see if the council finally fine France for this constant practice, especially in light of what they have done to Greece & italy) and finally his drive for a federal EU is dead as Germany would only back it if France reformed

meanwhile a pledge for more protests this saturday and the students and paramedics are getting in on the act

France just hasn't been the same since they degraded their gene pool during la Terreure.

It was triggered by fuel tax increase, but what Parisians really want? The diesel tax was dropped, but it seems like riots are almost turning into revolution? Anyone there who can tell what's going on? Media coverage falls short.

I think this 'parade' will sink in about 6 month timeframe...sadly.
That said, The french has a social mind construct. If that is performed, they will hurt you. Quite badly so. Kind of a anti-matter in the chaos of socialism.
You got to love them.

And this happened yesterday - https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-12-07/viral-video-french-students-lined-execution-style-sparks-outrage-protesters-want
Tomorrow is going to be interesting... Macron has caved in three times in the last few days, completely destroying his image as a globalist looking to reform France, completely destroying hopes of reforming EU as this was only going to happen with Germany's backing AND was dependant on France reforming its labour market.
