MAP: Protests Gripping Europe Over Past Month

  • RT Published on Dec 14, 2018
    Past month has been really rough on the EU, as protests, both violent and non-violent, have consumed some of the largest countries in the bloc. We’ve compiled the list of all the demonstrations which have taken place in Europe during the November-December period:

    • France
    The Yellow Vest demonstrations began on November 17th and have since swept their way throughout France, resulting in violent clashes with police, with more than 1,000 people being arrested nationwide. The protests are motivated by rising fuel taxes and the high cost of living. More than 125,000 people have taken part in ‘Act IV’ of the demonstrations on December 8. Protesters call for the reduction of fuel prices, the raising of the minimum wage, and the resignation of Emmanuel Macron as president.

    • England
    Two rival marches clashed in London on December 9. Thousands of people have taken part in the “Brexit Betrayal” march, led by the far-right activist Tommy Robinson. The movement was opposed by anti-racist groups, which claim to have gathered some 15,000 people in counter-demonstrations. Mounted riot police and officers in riot gear were deployed to keep the rival demonstrators apart.

    • Hungary
    Nearly 5,000 Hungarians rallied in Budapest on December 8 against a proposed labor legislation dubbed “slave law.” Some of the protestors wore yellow vests, expressing solidarity with demonstrators in France over discontent with the government.

    • Belgium
    More than 400 people were detained by the Belgian police during the copycat yellow vest protests in Brussels on Saturday, December 8. This is the second violent demonstration in the capital in the past 8 days. A crowd of more than a 1,000 people faced riot police, which used tear gas and water cannons to subdue the masses. The movement demands the removal of Belgium’s center-right coalition government.

    • Greece
    Angry protests broke out in Athens on December 6, the 10th anniversary of the police shooting of 15-year-old Alexis Grigoropoulos. Police said that around 1,700 people were protesting peacefully, until masked youths started attacking police with rocks and Molotov cocktails. Law enforcement responded with stun grenades and tear gas. More than 100 people were detained. • Norway Thousands of Norwegians joined together all over the country to express their opposition to the suggestion, by Prime Minister Erna Solberg, to toughen abortion laws. The demonstration took place across 14 cities across the country on November 17.

    • Czech Republic
    On Saturday, November 17 tens of thousands of people took to the streets of Prague to demand the resignation of the Czech Republic’s billionaire prime minister Andrej Babis, who is accused of defrauding the EU by nearly €2m. The protest comes on the 29th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution, which ended the communist regime in former Czechoslovakia.

    • Italy
    In light of Turin–Lyon high-speed railway construction going through, tens of thousands gathered in Turin on December 8 to protest against the project, claiming that it is a waste of public funds and is damaging to the environment. The organizers of the demonstrations claimed that the rally was attended by some 70,000 people, however these numbers haven’t been confirmed by police.

    • Spain
    Catalan independence activists, calling themselves “Committees to Defend the Republic” blocked a highway in Tarragona for 15 hours on Saturday, December 8, preventing the flow of traffic. In Barcelona, 250 people blocked traffic on the main avenue. The Spanish government threatened to send in national police, if regional authorities couldn’t prevent such protests.

French Yellow Vest Protests Spread Through Europe To Belgium And The Netherlands

  • French Yellow Vest Protests Spread Through Europe To Belgium And The Netherlands
    by Robert Wheeler, https://www.theorganicprepper.com/
    Editor’s Note: When I watch the Yellow Vest protests in France, and now in other parts of Europe, I can’t help but wonder if this is where we, too, are headed here in the United States. Between widespread political divisiveness and an economy that is truly suffering – despite what you see on the news – people here are also fed up. Is it only a matter of time before people in the US take to the streets by the hundreds of thousands and say, “Enough?” It’s truly essential to watch what’s going on in Europe to get a glimpse at our potential future – and to prepare for it. ~ Daisy

    As protests continue to rage in France, discontent is festering elsewhere in Europe at the same time. What began as a routine protest deep in Paris has swelled to over a hundred thousand people and approximately five locations throughout the country. Anger over yet another eco-fascist “gas tax” seems to have been the straw that finally broke the camel’s back.

    This, of course, was combined with other problems too: constant foreign military adventures, falling wages, rising costs of living, rising costs of healthcare, privatization of essential services, cultural disruption as a result of heavy migration, and growing unemployment as a result of Free Trade globalist policies.

    France is now facing the possibility of martial law or greater unrest and violence.

    It’s not just France dealing with Yellow Vest protests.
    And the discontent being seen in France is also being felt elsewhere in Europe – most notably Belgium and the Netherlands. Although receiving much less media attention, the “yellow vests” have taken to the street in Belgium over many of the same concerns as their counterparts in France.

    But while the French version of the protests was set off by the proposed increase of fuel taxes and ballooned into a movement addressing greater issues, there was no straw to place on the camel’s back in Belgium. There were no new fuel taxes announced or any other new policy that was receiving coverage in the media or causing discontent with Belgians at the time. The Belgian government is increasing the cost of fuel but the policy is not a new one. Belgians already pay the highest state taxes for fuel in Europe.

    Interestingly enough, it seems that the “final straw” for Belgian was imported from France.

The End of France as We Know It?

  • The End of France as We Know It?
    by TOM LUONGO, https://tomluongo.wordpress.com/
    When an event grabs headlines like the protests in France have I temper my reactions to it.  I didn’t give the Yellow Vest protests much thought at first wanting to see where they would lead.

    Protests like this and even bigger ones like Catalonian independence are invariably betrayed by the European political establishment.  They become an excuse to move towards tighter control — more cops, more surveillance, crackdowns on free speech, etc.

    So, sometimes it’s hard to separate the manufactured reality show from the spontaneous uprising of human frustration.

    But after the past two weekends of violent protests, after the French government backed down on the new diesel tax which was the inciting incident of this story, it’s safe to say this is real and there is real fear brewing among the political elite of Europe.

    As Rev. Steve Turley points out in this video, the media across Europe and the U.S. are scared of where this leads.

    A return of national sovereignty across Europe is no longer coming.  I think it’s here.  This can no longer be stage-managed as a relief valve of the massive discontent at neoliberal policies rammed down Europeans’ throats as it has in the past.

MACRON SHOCK: French President Faces NO CONFIDENCE Vote TOMORROW – France in Chaos

The guillotine carried the name of ‘En Marche!’ – the party of under-fire President Emmanuel Macron.

  • MACRON SHOCK: French President Faces NO CONFIDENCE Vote TOMORROW – France in Chaos
    by REBECCA PERRING, https://www.express.co.uk/
    EMMANUEL Macron’s government faces a vote of no confidence in parliament on Thursday amid nationwide anger at the French president which has seen riots across the country.

    Mr Macron’s leadership is hanging by a thread after the Yellow Vest protests posed the most formidable challenge yet to his presidency. The disorder, which erupted on November 17, were focused on denouncing a squeeze on household spending brought about by Mr Macron’s taxes on diesel, which he said were necessary to combat climate change and protect the environment. But Mr Macron was forced to climbdown from his fuel tax increases, which were part of his effort to combat climate change, wanting to persuade French drivers to exchange diesel-fuelled cars for less polluting models.

    However, they have since evolved into a bigger, general anti-Macron uprising, with many criticising the president for pursuing policies they claim favour the richest members of French society.

Europe Has A New Problem: Macron’s “Populism” To Blow Out French Budget Deficit Far Beyond Italy’s

  • Europe Has A New Problem: Macron’s “Populism” To Blow Out French Budget Deficit Far Beyond Italy’s
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    As if Brussels didn’t have its hands full already with Italy and the UK, the European Union will soon be forced to rationalize why one of its favorite core members is allowed to pursue populist measures to blow out its budget deficit to ease domestic unrest while another is threatened with fines potentially amounting to billions of euros.

    When blaming Russia failed to quell the widespread anger elicited by his policies, French President Emmanuel Macron tried to appease the increasingly violent “yellow vests” protesters who have sacked his capital city by offering massive tax cuts that could blow the French budget out beyond the 3% budget threshold outlined in the bloc’s fiscal rules.

    Given the concessions recently offered by Italy’s populists, Macron’s couldn’t have picked a worse time to challenge the bloc’s fiscal conventions. As Bloomberg pointed out, these rules will almost certainly set the Continent’s second largest economy on a collision course with Brussels. To be clear, Macron’s offered cuts come with a price tag of about €11 billion according to Les Echos, and will leave the country with a budget gap of 3.5% of GDP in 2019, with one government official said the deficit may be higher than 3.6%.

France on COLLISION COURSE with EU: Macron Shameless Pay-Off to Rioters BREAKS EU Rules

Macron said he wanted to rule like a Roman god ‘Jupiter’, above the political fray.

  • France on COLLISION COURSE with EU: Macron Shameless Pay-Off to Rioters BREAKS EU Rules
    by CARLY READ, https://www.express.co.uk/
    EMMANUEL Macron was today shamelessly BUYING his way out of trouble caving in to rioters after weeks of blood and chaos on the streets of France, with a host of policy U-turns and a multi-billion euro package of ‘presidency-saving’ measures.

    But the massive hand out goes DIRECTLY against EU rules and his own insistence on national spending and fiscal prudence – and is set to see France joining Italy in defiance of it’s own EU spending laws. Macron had even dished out numerous lectures to Italy warning them to come to heel over EU spending rules or face the consequences. Now the hapless president looks set to join Italy deliberately falling foul of EU rules. The French President has been aggressively spearheading an EU-wide drive to slash the bloc’s eye-watering 145billion euro debt. But last night he offered his troubled nation astonishing concessions that will see him not only add to Brussels’ fiscal budget but also dangerously inflate Paris’ own budget to over 100 percent of gross domestic product (GDP).

The Growing War Between Globalism and Nationalism Is Being Fought On the Streets of Paris

  • The Growing War Between Globalism and Nationalism Is Being Fought On the Streets of Paris
    by Dave Hodges, https://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/
    As we all know, President Trump ordered the American military to the border to oppose the dangerous and unlawful entry of unknown migrants into the United States. We know that a certain percentage of would-be border crashers are from such terrorist groups as MS-13, ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood. All three groups have indiscriminately murdered people from the West without provocation. All three groups have professed a desire to destroy the American government all people who reside in the country. We know that they use innocent women and children migrants to shield these cowardly thugs from the lawful retaliation of the Border Patrol and the American military.

    Stand Down Orders From the UN to President Trump to Open the Borders
    The UN Refugee Agency, has previously issued an order demanding that President Trump accept the caravans of refugees, In a previous interview with Voice of America, a representative from the UN Refugee Agency stated:

    Our position globally is that the individuals who are fleeing persecution and violence need to be given access to territory and protection including refugee status
    and determination procedure. And, if the people who are fleeing persecution and violence enter Mexico, they need to be provided access to the Mexican asylum system andthose entering the United States need to be provided access to the American asylum system

    Subsequently, 45 UN workers were placed on the ground with the group of Central Americans as the United Nations assisted foreigners in their violations of the American immigration laws. This was an egregious violation of US sovereignty by the UN.

Armoured Vehicles Bearing EU Flag STORM Paris in Sign European Army ALREADY Created

  • Armoured Vehicles Bearing EU Flag STORM Paris in Sign European Army ALREADY Created
    by Rachel O’Donoghue, https://www.dailystar.co.uk/
    ARMOURED vehicles bearing the European Union flag have stormed into Paris as protesters bring the city to a standstill.

    Riots have been raging across the city for the last few weeks as anger about the high cost of living and increased fuel taxes threaten to topple Emmanuel Macron’s Government. Shocking scenes today saw riot cops confronting the so-called Gilet Jaunes – after the high-vis yellow vests they have worn.

    But one particular video has caused a stir after it was posted on social media. It shows heavily armoured vehicles driving into the city as small fires – lit by furious protesters – rage around them. But rather than bearing the French Tricolore flag, the vehicles bore the distinct starred EU flag, which critics have said is a sign an EU Army is drawing closer to existence.

    Furious Twitter users have also said it is a sign the bloc, which the UK voted to leave in 2016, is prepared to crush any dissent in any of its member states. One person commented: “The Euro flag disturbs me on vehicles”. Another wrote: “With the European Union flag on!!!” And one outraged person shared a picture of President Macron alongside a quote attributed to him: “We need more Europe”.
