Violence on the streets of Paris as protesters rage against Macron for fifth day

This week the French President faced a mass revolt of 100 party members after they criticised his “broken promises and trust”.

Following this, furious protesters took to the streets yesterday afternoon in an anti-Macron rally for the fifth consecutive day.

Anti-Macron protesters confronted dozens of police while marching on the Elysee Palace in Paris, with a number of banks and businesses vandalised.

    Yawn, this is so typical France. I have no respect for the mama’s boy president, but one never see this kind of “protest” against the colonisation of their country by Muslims. Now propose that an employer can fire an incompetent employee or propose some reasonable control of the unions and this happens. Where is the righteous anger against the selling out of their sovereignty to the EU or the colonisation of their country? As usual, no where to be seen.

      My thoughts exactly. When I saw the headline, I was so hopeful that we might be seeing some serious French pushback against the E-U or the colonization process. But no, just more union whining, apparently supported by segments of the President’s own party, against some badly needed economic reforms. This is truly fiddling while the country burns.
