  1. The French people are inspiration. Inflation is hurting the poor and working class. All while the rich are eating the spoils. Im happy to see the French people protesting. People are fed up.


  3. Can't see him lasting much longer.

  7. Notre président est un traître

  8. Government don’t listen to the people what’s the point? Revolution……..

  9. Thank you French President Macron because of this you wont be re-elected again, and will enlarge the other political parties next election.🎉

  10. Wow, this is so biased, for once i really know what they're talking about and i realise how rigged this information is. Makes me think i maybe had a wrong opinion on Trump and his fake news

  11. neolibs always want the poor to pay more, let the rich pay instead of buying their 20th mansion and 5th yacht



  13. That's because it's rigged

  14. I absolutely despise Macron and the network of international bankers.

  15. I give creepy joe a vote of no confidence!

  16. i thought the thumbnail was of Gavin Newsom without hairgel for a sec

  17. We should be more like the French when it comes to protesting 👏👏👏

  18. How dare they not let them retire at 62?!? 😂

  19. Don't give up to the tyranny

  20. They really don't know how lucky they are. We are taxed to death in the U.S. too, and we must wait for retirement too. Our social security benefit age is increasing as people live longer and less workers are paying into to the system. Sometimes a leader must make the tough decisions for the good of the country. They have the lowest retirement age of the industrialized world. If not enough people pay in to the system, then the pensions are going to be reduced. It's better to delay retirement by two years then to risk losing receiving the full benefit. The French people have a lot or perks. French doctors don't pay for medical school. The government controls how much doctors and hospitals can charge and the patient gets reimbursed about 70%. They have universal health care that it actually works. That being said, it's a real tough issue. I do believe some concessions need to be made for those with physically demanding jobs, chronic illness, and those living on the poverty line.

  21. Wish people in the US were this up in arms about Biden, he is way worse and destroying not only the country but the world due to our tentacles everywhere in the world…

  22. The gates of Hades have opened…
