Yellow Vests Movement, Marching Revolution

Yellow Vests Movement : La Revolution en Marche

This is the moment to be proud as French people. Proud for your resistance, proud for your strength and courage in facing tyranny and oppression who try to take your liberté and egalité away. Proud for your relentless fight for egalité, liberté and fraternité. Traverse la rue, prends ton pays! My phrase which means “Cross the Street and Take Your Country Back!”, as my support to the Yellow Vests and French people, also my support to the students’ protests all over France and Mantes la Jolie.
As the Yellow Vests movement spilled to other European countries such as Belgium, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, etc France has became a leader in fighting for human rights, freedom and equality. One thing for sure is that France remembers and learned from its history. If this Yellow Vests Movement inspires other movements all over the world for freedom and equality, France can become once again the world’s leader in terms of Revolution in history. Vive la Révolution!

It is perfectly hypocritical to call the French gas tax an “ecotax” since the returns from a genuine ecotax would be invested to develop clean energies – such as tidal power plants. Rather, the benefits are earmarked to balance the budget, that is, to serve the government debt. The Macronian gas tax is just another austerity measure – along with cutting back public services.
