    (24 Nov 2018) France deployed thousands of police on Saturday to try to contain nationwide protests and road blockades by drivers angry over rising fuel taxes and Emmanuel Macron's presidency.
    Tensions have been mounting around the grassroots movement that drew more than a quarter-million people a week ago to protests across France, from Provence to Normandy and in between.
    In Paris, near the capital's Arc de Triomphe, protesters in yellow vests gathered early Saturday for a march toward the Elysee Palace.
    Paris alone deployed some 3,000 security forces, notably around tourist-frequented areas like the Champs-Elysees, after an unauthorised attempt last week to march on the presidential palace.
    During the past week, two people have been killed and hundreds injured, posing big challenges to Macron.
    Authorities are struggling because the movement has no clear leader and has attracted a motley group of people with broadly varying demands.
    The protesters call themselves the "yellow jackets" for the neon security vests that drivers are required to keep in their vehicles.
    Macron has defended the fuel taxes as necessary to reduce France's dependence on fossil fuels, but promised to lay out new plans Tuesday to make the "energy transition" easier.

This has everything to do with demonrat Libtard views they love taxes and poverty for the poor I swear they get off on it I think! They claim to be for poor masses but vote on the socialists policy that put these taxes in place I truly think until we exile and outlaw these liberal socialists views we will be battling these issues! Time for a serious wake up call for all these countries#liberalismisasickness!

+Achinth Murali Oh, excuse me, "Replacement Migration." Yes, it is happening. Half of London's population isn't British. Americans of European decent are projected to be a minority by 2050. German is projected to be a muslim turkish nation within a century. "Will not let it happen.." Actually more than half of the population of most Western countries are asking for it to happen because they are brainwashed by cultural marxism.

John Johnson also. Stop being a victim. You can make Europe great. Most migrants don’t even want Europe. They just want a safe place with a good economy. Many Syrians actually went BACK to Syria. We should help them return.

John Johnson 1. It’s not called that. 2. Replacement isn’t happening, and even if it is the country’s people will NOT allow it.

God's Roadmap to the End
God's Roadmap to the End

It is clear that the "Yellow Vest" protests in France that are scheduled for "ACT 3" this weekend has been planned for quite some time and is clearly on the cards as part of the Illuminati's plans for bringing in the New World Order. The Hermit Card on the Economist Magazine with title: The World in 2017, clearly depicts the demonstrations in "yellow vests" and associates December 1st -2nd 2018 with it in the celestial alignment shown on the card. The "Tax Reform" card in the Illuminati Card Game also points to all of this starting in France - being associated with a Guillotine. Here is an article with a video that will provide more information: http://beforeitsnews.com/v3/protests-demonstrations/2018/2458037.html

AT $1.47 per euro, is that per gallon or liter, because if its per gallon, try paying $1.60 AU per liter which is over 6.50 Per gallon ? so basically conversion is that if i had 1 euro dollar its would be the same as paying for a liter of petrol there, lol :) or 2.30 Austrian for 1 euro dollar conversion, which is to say i would be paying around 2.40 per liter of 95 RON fuel also i have herd that the fuel in europe is real bad, in the sense its not as good as some other countries like the US and others as well, like australia, meaning its cleaner and more powerful especially the 98 RON and E85 fuels. :) Go franch you show them in australia when the fuel was reaching close to 1.00 per liter the government stepped in and you would no guess what happened, all the Processing plants said we will just move overseas to other countries to process the oil, the government gave up,because the tax on the fuel is 50% so basically the government gets close to 1/2 the cost of each and every liter of fuel used around australia which would be in the 100's of billions each year and there's only about 20 million cars in australia a lot more than some other countries but there's only 30 million people who live in australia as well?

Here in Belgium current price is 1.35 but they are planning to pull it up to 1.6 per liter. If you fill a 30L gas tank (which is a small one) it 'll cost you about 50e.. This is insane !!!! The only good thing we have going is that we live in a tiny country. If you would project this on U.S or France where distances between A & B are quite bigger.. you can imagine the incredible cost ... But it's not the only thing; Working people are absolutely sick & tired of rich elitists and the strangle hold they have on politics. Politicians are payed very high wages and receive many bonusses just to keep their mouth shut and keep working for the benifit of the elite. People want to have a normal life, not live beyond their means. They are tired of having to struggle to make ends meet eventhough they are hard working. I hope the protest will grow massive and make a difference.
