You’re doing great France 🇫🇷 get those greedy bastards to raise taxes on the ultra rich


nivekdrol

right?, if only we weren't so divided in the USA


PrimaryFun7995

The division was manufactured unfortunately


YouTraining3671

Agree with you 100%. Divide them and have them fight each other so the 1% can keep stealing money from the poors.


PrimaryFun7995

Anyone coming by, go watch a bugs life. It'll speak to you. Hoppers a dipass


firemage22

Just look at mlkjr the powers that be where just fine with black people joining the normal economy, but once King started to work with labor he was taken out, as where the Kennedy brothers and the fishy circumstances around Ruther's death * spelling corrections


2ndhandBS

We were close once in 2011 during occupy wall street. But suddenly the media started to report about HBQT rights and racism. Funny thing was that we had a lot of gays and immigrants in our assemblys. And by the time they shut our camp down few gave a shit anymore.


LeAccountss

Americans started doing this. Then we United for WW2. We never started again because segregation and benefits for whites caused a massive rift in economic status. Then the next large generation ended up in Vietnam. The next one in Iraq.


Bitter_Ad7226

And then next one coming shortly WW3


Fuzzy-Perception5677

Fair but then lets change that narrative. Start saying usa can do it and just maybe we will. Teachers have started, railworkers tried and will do it again. More and more are striking and thats the first step. Unions are starting and even ppl not in unions are supporting them. We may not have the best organization but that doesnt mean we all dont share a common thing to unite us.


fgwr4453

Blockade the airport. France is the most popular country for tourists. I doubt tourists are having fun now, but there are still some villages that are probably nice to visit and are not on strike. You make it even more painful and watch the pensions return to normal. Don’t stop there though. Keep it up until resignation, I would not trust a leader that went around the legislative body to enact something this against the people.


boomzgoesthedynamite

I was in Paris and got back Tuesday. Honestly didn’t notice even one protest. They’re confined to an area that my Uber driver pointed out. The garbage wasn’t even noticeable to us New Yorkers. We hit traffic a couple of times but it didn’t alter our trip in anyway. So while I support the message, I think reddit and the media are severely overestimating the impact the protests are having.


HerrDrFaust

There are regulations around protests and we can’t just set the entirety of Paris on fire :P The protests are having a big impact, a whole lot of services are interrupted because of them (Uber drivers are not obviously, but public transportation is a real mess rn). Thankfully we don’t need to entirely destroy the country to have an impact haha, the associations and syndicates organizing the protests know how to hurt the economy and the government


boomzgoesthedynamite

I took the metro everywhere. I’m just saying it doesn’t affect tourists at all.


Rowing_Lawyer

I think that says more about New York than about France.


boomzgoesthedynamite

Um sure but my point was it doesn’t affect tourists really in any way.


xboxwirelessmic

It was enough for King and Mrs fatfingers to cancel their trip lol.


Superpigmen

Most of the airports and trains stations in Paris were blocked so \- You either ar elying, badly at that. \- Was lucky enough to get your flight not canceled but had to embark by foot as people driving the busses to get to the planes were striking.


boomzgoesthedynamite

No, they weren’t. We took the metro everywhere. My flight wasn’t even delayed. We took an Uber to Orly and got there in 24 minutes. You’re making this up because?


Rusma99

You’re right tbh. I’m Parisian and the protests aren’t that impactful on the everyday life except for the trash tho?? I don’t understand how you don’t notice them


boomzgoesthedynamite

Of course I noticed. It just wasn’t very impactful.


Bitter_Ad7226

I love the French countryside


Gluomme

Work is done to stop fuel supply. It is estimated that shit would feel dire at the airport in two days, but workers are coerced by force by the police to go back to work in the refineries, using a legal loophole. We'll see how this turns out, refinery workers are supported by the rest of the protesters after all.


Le_Sadie

God I wish my country would react half this passionately to the bs the government pulls. We're a bunch of complacent, apathetic twats.


AlphaMetroid

You Canadian too? Or is this just really common


Le_Sadie

No, I'm Canadian :/


AlphaMetroid

Dw, one of these days we'll actually stand up for ourselves. And when that day comes, the gov will probably be caught with their Dong in their Han


ArnieismyDMname

Poor Han


Le_Sadie

Google Revolution Party Canada


Square_Sink7318

I figured america like me lol


Le_Sadie

Americans actively work against their own best interests. Canadians just let someone else make the decisions for them.


Square_Sink7318

I don't know about the Canadian part but u r right about Americans so I will take your word for it. Both suck


DoctorYouShould

Imagine Macron saying that they are subjugation the people in the name of the same people. Oh wait


CompetitiveDurian189

GOOD KEEP FUCKING GOING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Foreverme133

France is fucking savage 💞💞💞


YawaruSan

Whoooooo boy, things are really heating up over there. Say, that’s a nice United States of America you got there, be a shame if something untoward were to occur due to a growing sense of discontentment among the popular masses that manufactured consent via corporate media was no longer able to misdirect or distract. Yep! Mighty shame, bigly shame.


RevolutionaryTell668

Seems like the safer play to shore up retirement funding would have been to tax the rich


Putrid_Ad_2256

Although the rich would probably end your political career.


[deleted]

Why are the rich determining your political career?


Putrid_Ad_2256

Because they can pour money into your political rivals, investigate you, soil your name. Why do you think Putin has so many puppets around the world ready to do his bidding?


[deleted]

Do you think if Putin was...deposed, that this shit would end or at least subside? We have too few rich people dictating the lives of so many.


Putrid_Ad_2256

I think if all money going into politicians was accounted for, every last penny, then we could see where these people's alliances were. It should be absolutely illegal for a person in service of the public to hide their finances. And what if the people dictated their own lives and had dominion over their own lives until the exercising of their rights infringed on someone else's rights?


Infamous_Smile_386

Keep going, France!


Siafu_Soul

Remember when Macron said that French citizens don't have the right to self defense? Wonder how he feels about that now.

Macron: Because of the fiscal situation, cuts will be necessary. Angry mob: Funny, we were thinking the same thing. Macron: So you agree we should raise the retirement age? Angry mob: Not those kind of cuts. You need a trim.


PepperUsual

He wants a tax cut for the rich and therefore social expenditure will also have to be cut so that the budget remains balanced. This is literally the issue. Public officials are the first to say that the pensions system is under no sustainability threath.


Putrid_Ad_2256

This is what happens when politicians sell the people out. Now if the moronic maga would realize that they are being lied to by the same clowns that want to fleece the commoners in France, there could really be a grassroots upswell and these crooks would see the ground shake. Instead, they believe the deception and diversion.


chippythecold

Im not a religious person, but God bless the fucking French!!! - AN INSPIRED aMERICAN


stonedraider88

Well he macaroon can control it, by simply repealing a law he wrote without any vote or parliamentary approval.


this_fuck1ng_guy

I’d really like to move to France now


sunnylagirl

Yep. US should follow suit when they try and do the same here.


Spicy_mch4ggis

We didn't start the fire\~


DarthSchu

The French people reelected this man. They knew how horrible he was.....


mymeatpuppets

>They knew how horrible he was..... They knew how even more horrible the alternative was...


DarthSchu

Well we will never know that but Macron has been absolutely horrible. They have reaped what they sowed.


Jerry_Williams69

His rival was a literal Fascist. They had to choose the bread for a shit sandwich.


DarthSchu

Looks like that got the fascist shit sandwich to me


dessipants

Spread over to the US. We need some of that rage!


cmd_iii

It is illogical to give people the option to burn it all down and start over when their country was literally founded that way.


Jaxxs90

We should try this in Canada.


Only-Reach-3938

The question is how it will end. For me, Macron is finished. The alternative is the far right. This is what the beginning of the end of the European Union looks like.


PepperUsual

We might very well be watching the suicide of French democracy. How stable can a political system be when neoliberal politicians bent on waging war against the poor need the votes of the Left in order to get elected and keep the Far-Right at bay? The riot cop is the symbol of the Macron Era...


alanius4

Well, clearly people arent liking macrons rule. Lepen is prob laughing real hard right now


Furry_Lou

I'm not so sure she and the far right had passed most of the debate time to watch and said nothing of the center or insult the far left for creating violence so not the best move. Also her great position before was most of because young people weren't really invest in the elections which is changing right now most of them becoming more actives with the strike and strikers are mostly left and far left. But again i can't predict the futur --"


[deleted]

Why does it have to be far right? Why are these the only options presented? Is no one else allowed to run?


GregTaylor922

We can't do business with a lot of France because they demand 90 minute lunches 4 day work weeks, and 3 month summer vacations. No wonder they are in a state.


ImportantReaction260

The fact you are spineless, unable to stand u for yourself, have no self-respect, enjoy being a submissive obedient masochistic because of some kind of Stockholm syndrome and so on is definitely not the flex you think it is buddy !! You're way too brainwashed and indoctrinated for your own good.


HerrDrFaust

Not sure what you’re on, in France it’s 30 days (not 3 months) of PTO and 5 days work weeks.


Jerry_Williams69

So their lives would be better if they worked more? Also, you are embellishing quite a bit.


logancw2

Yes burn down a city because people trust their government to provide a retirement plan instead of working dor it yourself. This is what happens when you wnat daddy government to take care of you. People are so blind.


InstructionLeading64

These people did work for their retirement you fucking twat.


Square_Sink7318

A retirement plan is something you work and put money in from your paycheck that you earned. If u r lucky your employer will add more. At the very least you have to give the company 20 years or more for a pension..... You kinda can't see yourself. I must have missed a lot....


Feardemon3

Go people of France! Burn it all down!


pngue

Ffs the solution in France, Canada and the US is tax the rich but they just.won’t.fucking.doit!


HerrDrFaust

We already tax the rich a whole lot, there are other solutions aside from what they’re doing with the retirements though.


TintoDeVerano

We don't. Billionaires pay very little in tax due to a number of exemptions. https://lvsl.fr/taxation-des-milliardaires-ces-5-arguments-faux-quon-ne-veut-plus-entendre/

They either fight this now or work 2 more years! Easiest choice ever!✊✊✊✊


WeaselJCD

The french lead by example and we should all follow them! They are fighting for all of us and showing us how it is done and giving us a gameplan to follow when our time comes! Good luck! I wish you all the best and may your efforts succeed!


Internal-Upstairs-55

Macron and his 1 % buddies are holed up in a corner they created for others.


PlaygroundBully

Is there any looting going on over there?


Shattered_Disk4

Fuck’em, keep going


RAOMD_Lover

So are the cops exempt from the retirement age increase?? To put it kindly, besides the personality differences to where many cops enjoy this kind of work, why are they not striking? Don't they have just as much to loose?


Redtoolbox1

This is what happens when a law is forced upon the masses that they don’t want and only benefits the rich. The same thing will occur in America if they force retirement age to 70


nephilimpride

is it weird I love this? I know it's not moral or right to be out there burning buses or cars but fuck me I love seeing shit like this to remind us that we shouldn't be bending over for those .1% in power.


greengengar

UNIONS! FOR EVERYONE WONDERING WHY AMERICANS DON'T DO THIS, WE DON'T HAVE UNIONS LIKE FRANCE.


sovcody

Vive La France.

I wonder how long it will take the police to realise its going to affect them too........
