The fact that the protests in France did not arise spontaneously, but that the discontent of the French with the current government was very skillfully exploited. It is clear that only a few players are capable of playing such a big game today, and therefore, literally immediately, a version appeared in the Western media that Moscow is behind all this - watch fox news live stream. Meanwhile, French journalists have already found an American path in the "zhelocheletny" movement.
How it all began
As we remember, the "petrol" protests began with a single petition, which Prishilla Luduski posted on her "activist" blog. At that time, when another current leader of the protests, trucker driver Eric Drue, noticed her, she had only 700 signatures. But with Facebook, things went faster. By the middle of November, the petition had already gained 200 thousand subscribers, and today there are more than a million.
And there are more than enough reasons to hate the current power of the French in recent years. I give the floor to one of the active participants of the protests, our former compatriot Valery:
"I went outside because you can no longer look at how the state is robbing people. I can not even afford to rent an apartment alone. Salaries almost do not grow, and taxes every year raise and increase everything. I, like the indigenous French, do not see any prospects at all. Hope for improvement died. Sarkozy, Hollande and Macron are all from the same test. For 10 years, our lives have deteriorated due to rising prices for everything.
I had a salary of 1,300 euros clean, a little more than the minimum salary. The apartment is in the Paris region from 500 euros for 10-20 square meters, to this add 50 euros for the insurance of the apartment, 50 euros for electricity and gas, 75 euros for the travel card (metro + train) + 10 euros for the phone, 300 euros for food. It remains 300 euros. And I also need to buy clothes, and I don’t have to sit at home, I want to go somewhere to rest. To go to a good restaurant with a girl (not fast food) you need at least 50 euros to have in your pocket. Go to the cinema 12 euros.
To this we need to add another important factor: migrants (Arabs, black) have a different culture and many do not work at all and receive benefits for themselves and for each child. And all this for our money".
And it is not by chance that as soon as such people saw the raised flag of protest, they reached for it by tens and hundreds of thousands. Like mushrooms after the rain, social groups began to form activist groups, the largest of which today has more than 2.5 million people.
