Liste des 42 revendications des gilets jaunes

I have some serious doubts that this list of demands that purports to represent what the Yellow Vests want is much more than an attempt to redirect some of the nationalist revolutionary spirit that presently pervades France. Where is the demand for Macron’s resignation, for starters?

  1. Zero homeless: URGENT.
  2. More progressive income tax (more slices).
  3. Minimum monthly income set at 1300 euros net.
  4. Favor the small villages and town centers. Stop the construction of large commercial areas around major cities that kill the small businesses and give free parking in city centers.
  5. Large Housing Isolation Plan. Save the environment by saving households.
  6. Force the LARGE CORPORATIONS (McDonalds, Google, Amazon, Carrefour) to pay MORE taxes and that the small corporations pay less.
  7. Same social security system for everyone (including artisans and autoentrepreneurs). End of the RSI.
  8. The pension system must remain in solidarity and therefore socialized. (No point of retirement).
  9. End of the tax hike on fuel.
  10. No monthly retirement payment below 1,200 euros.
  11. Any elected representative will be entitled to the median salary. His transport costs will be monitored and reimbursed if they are justified. Right to the restaurant ticket and the holiday voucher.
  12. The wages of all French people as well as pensions and allowances must be indexed to inflation.
  13. Protect French industry and prohibit corporate relocations. Protecting our industry is protecting our know-how and our jobs.
  14. End of detached work. It is abnormal that a person who works on French territory does not benefit from the same salary and the same rights. Anyone who is authorized to work on French territory must be on a par with a French citizen and his employer must contribute at the same level as a French employer.
  15. For job security: further limit the number of fixed-term contracts for large companies. We want more CDI.
  16. End of the CICE. Use this money for the launch of a French hydrogen car industry (which is truly ecological, unlike the electric car.)
  17. End of the austerity policy. We will stop repaying the interest on the debt that is declared illegitimate and will repay the legitimate debt without taking the money from the poor and the poorest, but by reclaiming the $80 billion in annual tax evasion.
  18. That the causes of forced migration are addressed.
  19. That asylum seekers be treated well. We owe them housing, security, food and education for the minors. Work with the UN to have host camps open in many countries around the world, pending the outcome of the asylum application.
  20. That the unsuccessful asylum seekers be returned to their country of origin.
  21. That a real integration policy is implemented. Living in France means becoming French. This means a French language course, History of France course and civic education course with certification at the end of the course.
  22. Maximum salary set at 15,000 euros.
  23. That jobs are created for the unemployed.
  24. Increase of disabled allowances.
  25. Limitation of rents. Moderate rent housing, especially for students and low-income workers.
  26. Prohibition to sell property belonging to France (airport dam …)
  27. Substantial means granted to the justice system, the police, the gendarmerie and the army. That law enforcement overtime be paid or recovered.
  28. All the money earned by highway tolls will be used to maintain highways and roads in France and road safety.
  29. As the price of gas and electricity has increased since privatization, we want them to become public again and prices fall significantly.
  30. Immediate closure of small lines, post offices, schools and maternity wards.
  31. Let’s bring wellness to our seniors. Prohibition of making money on the elderly. The gray gold is finished. The era of gray well-being begins.
  32. Maximum 25 students per class from kindergarten to 12th grade.
  33. Substantial means brought to psychiatry.
  34. The People’s Referendum must enter the Constitution. Creating a readable and effective site, supervised by an independent control body where people can make a proposal for a law. If this bill obtains 700,000 signatures then this bill will have to be discussed, completed, amended by the National Assembly which will have the obligation, (one year to the day after obtaining the 700,000 signatures) to submit it. to the vote of all the French.
  35. Back to a 7-year term for the President of the Republic. (The election of deputies two years after the election of the President of the Republic made it possible to send a positive or negative signal to the President of the Republic concerning his policy, so it helped to make the voice of the people heard.)
  36. Retirement at age 60 and for all those who have worked in a trade using the body right to retirement at 55 years.
  37. A child of 6 years not keeping alone, continuation of the PAJEMPLOI help system until the child is 10 years old.
  38. Promote the transport of goods by rail.
  39. No withholding tax.
  40. End of presidential allowances for life.
  41. Prohibit paying merchants a tax when their customers use the credit card. -Taxe on marine fuel oil and kerosene.

The protests will continue

Until the Macron resigns:

Macron’s concessions to the Yellow Vests has failed to appease protesters and opposition politicians, such as Jean-Luc Mélenchon, who called for “citizen’s revolution” to continue until a fair distribution of wealth is achieved. Immediately after French President Macron declared a “social and economic state of emergency” in response to large-scale protests by members of the Yellow Vest movement, promising a range of concessions to address their grievances, left-wing opposition politician Mélenchon called on the grassroots campaign to continue their revolution next Saturday.

It is informative that the professional Left appears to be trying to make itself the public face of the Yellow Vest movement. This is the same thing that the professional Conservative Movement successfully did to the Tea Party, leaping to the head of the parade in order to divert it and dissipate its momentum. They are seeking to make it an economic protest rather than a nationalist one.

Macron makes an offer

I tend to doubt this attempt to buy off the left-wing of the Yellow Vests will work, since it falls well short of him resigning:

French president Emmanuel Macron tonight announced a range of dramatic Socialist-style financial concessions to struggling workers so as to end an ‘economic and social state of emergency’.

In a TV address lasting 12 minutes, he said a month of rioting and blockades justified a €100 (£90) increase in the minimum wage, taking it to €1498 (£1360).

This will not ‘cost anything to the employer’, said Mr Macron, and will be accompanied by all taxes and other charges on overtimes being scrapped.

There were also be an end-of-year bonus that employers can pay without being charged by the government, while taxes on those earning less than €2000 (£1800) will also end on January 1.

Mr Macron also ruled out any return of the Solidarity Wealth Tax, saying that he wanted to stop rich entrepreneurs ‘moving abroad’, so preventing ‘job creation’.

The extraordinarily generous package of measures represents a massive U-turn by Mr Macron who originally said he would not yield to rioting as he tried to liberalise the sluggish France economy.

He’s showing weakness. This is not the time to declare victory and go home, it’s the time to press harder. Notice that he’s appealing to the union leaders; the leaders are always the weak point.

The real story in France

It will probably not surprise anyone here to know that the globomedia is completely misrepresenting the Yellow Vest protests in Paris. This is a post by an American living in Paris about what is really going on with the gilets jaunes.

It’s important to note that the majority of protestors are middle aged, these are not college or university students, who make up the usual French protests. This is a grassroots protest. It’s been reported anywhere from 50-80{f58ffdc504f80bac68191b5fd37702d6450abd7e1b4a7df1cf9b5dab55667e79} of the French support the gilets jaunes. This is NOT just about taxes.

The protests began over the new taxes imposed by Macron’s government on fuel. The taxes are viewed as punishing those who use cars and those who can’t afford to buy newer ones. The French already pay heavy taxes on fuel, along with high tolls on highways. Every car in France is required to have 2 high visibility vests (gilets jaunes). The protestors began wearing those vests while protesting.

Along with this, the cost of living is incredibly high while salaries are painfully low, especially in larger cities like Paris. The myth of government-ordered 35 hour work weeks isn’t the reality for most salaried French people. Taxes eat huge chunks of their money and the French are fed up with making the same amount in their salaries as those who don’t work at all and rely on government assistance.

Parts of France are also filled with unassimilated migrants. These migrants get government assistance as well. A large part of the French are sick of paying for migrants when French people are suffering as well. There are areas that have stopped being culturally French and cities the French avoid for holidays because of the migrant problem.

In addition to this, retired people have been lodging their dissatisfaction with their retirement pensions (one woman in a video circulating around French Facebook confronts Macron about having to live off of 500€ a month) and Macron’s reactions have been condescending across the board. He currently has about a 26{f58ffdc504f80bac68191b5fd37702d6450abd7e1b4a7df1cf9b5dab55667e79} approval rating.

All of this started bubbling up a few weeks ago as the protests began with the gilets jaunes in November. The protests last weekend got violent. Statues at the Arc De Triomphe were broken; the Arc was defaced. In Marseille, an 80 year old woman was killed as she was closing her shutters. The police threw a tear gas canister at her window. While outside of larger cities, many police officers and firefighters are taking off their helmets and/or standing in solidarity with the gilets jaunes. There have been reports that they have also refused to shake Macron’s hand and have turned their backs to government officials while serving in official capacities.

On Monday (December 2), there was a protest by the ambulances in Paris. They stood at Concorde with lights flashing and sirens sounding. Truck drivers have also showed their solidarity. They have also driven through Paris with lights flashing to show their dissatisfaction. Roads have been closed down by gilets jaunes and they are blocking access of oil in both ports and at stations. As of posting, over 650 stations are on a list of facing shortages or out of fuel. During yesterday’s news cycle, many truck drivers were seen disrupting broadcasts by honking in solidarity with the gilets jaunes.

On Tuesday (December 3), the French government spoke about their plans for “appeasement” of the gilets jaunes. Their offer was to postpone the start date of 3 taxes (related to fuel). This offer has been scoffed at by the gilets jaunes, who have called it “crumbs” as the taxes haven’t even been implemented yet and the offer does nothing to address the issues regarding cost of living.

Along with this, the French have begun demanding that Macron refuse to sign the UN Migration Act on December 10. This has begun appearing across the Facebook groups and events but has not been widely reported in the French media as far as I can tell.

This has culminated in everything from demands Macron step down to the creation of the 6th Republic. There are protests planned for Saturday across France. The protestors are calling the Paris protests ACT 4. They are quoting from the French National Anthem (“Aux Armes Citoyens”) and planning to protest at Bastille. The medical community is also participating in the protests on Saturday.

TLDR: This is bigger than taxes. These aren’t your usual French protests.

UN backs Soros

The UN and the EU are desperately trying to get nationalist Hungary to back down and accept foreign invasion before more countries are inspired to defend themselves against the globalist evil:

Hungary’s Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto has accused the UN human rights watchdog of “spreading lies” about his country, saying that immigration was not a “fundamental human right.”
The official took aim at the “independent experts” with the UN Human Rights Council, stating they “should not be independent from the truth.”

“Recently, unfortunately, some UN officials started to spread lies against and about my country,” Szijjarto told the UN body’s meeting on Wednesday.

Such officials would like to “force on us impossible things,” namely allowing illegal migrants into the country, Szijjarto stated. “They say that migration is a fundamental human right, which is a lie,” he stressed.

The harsh statement of the foreign minister came as a response to criticism against Hungarian anti-immigration policies. Last week, the UN rights body blasted the so-called ‘Stop Soros’ law, adopted by the country’s government back in July. The UN paper said Hungary “attacks against civil society, migrants, refugees and asylum seekers” with the law, adding that it’s against the international human rights law and poses a threat to the “values” of the whole European Union.

It added that it targets the critical “civil society” and fuels “hostility, xenophobia and … discrimination against migrants, asylum seekers, refugees and all those trying to provide them support.”

The ‘Stop Soros’ law has imposed restrictions on foreign NGOs, which work with migrants, obliging them to seek licenses from the government. It also criminalized aiding migrants, namely “providing financial or property benefit” to them or simply informing them about the asylum-seeking procedures. Those who do so could now face 12 months in jail.

Hungary is nationalist because Hungary understands the long-term costs of being invaded much better than most nations do. The Hungarian leadership is doing what the Right far too often fails to do, which is go on the offensive against its enemies. If all you do is play defense, you will lose. It’s guaranteed. Every party of the Right, from Myanmar to the USA, would be well advised to start aggressively pushing for laws banning the principles, funding, activities, and organizations of the Left.

So-called “freedom of speech” was always a trap. As others have noted, they simply define your speech as violence even as they define their violence as speech.

Doubling down on globalism

Emmanuel Macron has gone the not-British, not-German, and not-Swedish “nations of immigrants” one better and is openly denying the existence of the French and Danish people.

France has a “deep and complex identity, which has always been thought of as universalism”, the former investment banker said, before stating he believes he has succeeded in provoking “cultural change” in the native since his election last year.

“People are changing their minds, they are much more open to risk,” he told the event, which was broadcast on Danish television.

“You will see France transformed by its people.”

Asked by a Danish student about the future of national identities in Europe, Macron said that “the ‘true Dane’ does not exist — he is a European”.

“Even your language is not just Danish — it is European. The same is true for the French”, he added.

To say that these people are unfit for national leadership doesn’t even begin to describe their despicable treachery. They are literally seeking to eliminate their own nations.

30 percent+

The immigrant youth in Sweden seem determined to prove the accuracy of my prediction about the electoral performance of the Sweden Democrats in the 2018 election:

Masked youth torched dozens of cars overnight in Sweden and threw rocks at police, prompting an angry response from the prime minister, who on Tuesday spoke of an “extremely organized” night of vandalism.

Police spokesman Hans Lippens said Tuesday that initial reports indicate that about 80 cars were set ablaze overnight, chiefly in Sweden’s second largest city, Goteborg, and nearby Trollhattan, an industrial city.

Fires were also reported on a smaller scale in Malmo, Sweden’s third largest city.

In Trollhattan, northeast of Goteborg, where at least six cars were burned, rocks were also thrown at police and roads were blocked. Goteborg is 400 kilometers (250 miles) southwest of Stockholm.

Lippens added that because the fires started within a short period of time, “we cannot exclude that there is a connection between the blazes.”

Photos posted by Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet showed black-clad men torching cars on a parking lot outside a Goteborg suburb. Sweden’s news agency TT said witnesses had seen “masked youngsters” running away. No arrests have been made.

Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven lashed out at the perpetrators, asking them “what the heck are you doing?” In an interview on Swedish radio, he said he was “really getting mad” and that “the society must react in a tough manner.” He said the fires seemed to be “extremely organized.”

The Viking clan chieftains of yore must be turning over in their graves at the feeble cowardice of their descendants. It is becoming increasingly obvious to the historically-aware observer that there are now three, and only three, choices facing the nations of the West:

  1. Continued adulteration, degradation, and collapse.
  2. Deus vult and mass deportations.
  3. Caedite eos.

Forza Italia

Under the guidance of Santo Matteo, Italy is cleansing itself, street by street, quarter by quarter:

Police in Rome on Thursday cleared nearly 400 people, including dozens of children, from a shanty camp inhabited for years by members of the minority Roma community, despite a European Union court ruling halting demolition. Residents stood outside the camp with mattresses and other belongings piled alongside vehicles, some protesting against the move with chants of “Racists!”

Some residents complained that police used force during the eviction. Police commander Antonio Di Maggio denied the claims.

Mayor Virginia Raggi wrote on Facebook that the shantytown, established in a former campground called Camping River on Rome’s northern periphery, was closed for hygiene reasons. Parts of the camp had been without electricity and running water. She said that the move was meant to provide greater protection to the Roma, especially minors, some of whom do not attend school.

“It is unacceptable to continue to finance places like this that create ghettos, and above all, where the living conditions don’t protect the rights of children, women and men,” Raggi wrote in a Facebook post.

The European Court of Human Rights on Tuesday asked Italian authorities to suspend action until Friday and outline plans to rehouse the community, following an appeal by three camp residents. But city officials said that they had long been working to relocate residents, and had delayed the planned closing by more than a year.

Raggi noted that some who were not Italian citizens had returned to their native Romania in recent months. While many members of Italy’s sizeable Roma community, also known as Gypsies, are of Italian nationality, many living in the camp were from Romania, Kosovo, Bosnia and Serbia.

But wait, there’s more:

Condannato per violenza sessuale su una minorenne, che in seguito a quegli abusi si ammazzò, un uomo di 45 anni è stato ucciso ieri sera a Frasso Telesino, un centro del Beneventano, dove era tornato da un paio di giorni grazie a un breve permesso ottenuto dopo nove anni di detenzione. L’assassino ha raggiunto Giuseppe Matarazzo fin dentro casa, per poi allontanarsi senza essere notato da nessuno, almeno stando alle prime indagini avviate dai carabinieri. Che per ora non si sbilanciano sul movente, ma certo Matarazzo difficilmente può avere avuto il tempo di farsi qualche nemico nelle poche ore di libertà di cui ha goduto in questi giorni, quindi è più che probabile che l’omicida avesse con lui un conto aperto da molti anni, e vista la colpa di cui si macchiò, non si può escludere che chi ha deciso di ucciderlo abbia ritenuto che l’uomo meritava una condanna superiore a quella inflittagli in corte d’assise e poi in appello. 

Translation: a priest in Napoli who was jailed for molesting a 15-year-old girl, who later killed herself, was let out of prison for two days after serving 9 years of his 11-year sentence. At the end of the two days, he was found shot to death in his home. His death was not believed to be a suicide.

Peaceful multicultural societies don’t exist

Even the Dutch have figured this out:

Peaceful multicultural societies don’t exist and the EU won’t be able to force “equal” migrant distribution on Eastern Europe, where people of color are beaten to a pulp, the Dutch FM said according to a leaked video.

The explosive comments were delivered by Dutch Foreign Minister Stef Blok during a private meeting attended by some 80 people working for the Netherlands’ international organizations. Footage of Blok speaking to the audience via video link was leaked to the current affairs program Zembla on Wednesday, and the inflammatory remarks promptly spread through the Dutch media.

“I have asked my ministry this and I will pose the question here as well,” Blok can be heard saying in the video. “Give me an example of a multi-ethnic or a multi-cultural society, in which the original population still lives, and where there is a peaceful cohabitation. I don’t know one.”

The minister went further and said it might be all fun and games to go to a “Turkish bakery on Sunday” if you live in a well-off part of a city, but a “number of side effects” promptly become tangible if one lives in a migrant-packed neighborhood. You very quickly reach the limits of what a society can take,” Blok stated.

One of the event goers gave Suriname as an example of a peaceful multicultural society. Bok, however, brushed off the claim, branding the former Dutch colony “a failed state.”

“And that is largely to do with the ethnic divisions,” Blok said.

It’s going to be an interesting contest between which ideology was more objectively insane and which was the most harmful between a) communism, b) feminism, and c) multiculturalism. At this point, I’d say it’s a two-horse race between (b) and (c). Even 70 years of murderous communism left most nations more or less intact.

Better late than too late

The European nations are finally getting around to shielding their soft southern underbelly, fortunately before the coming African overpopulation crisis gets completely out of hand:

Europe will shut its southern doors to migrants under plans to be discussed by Germany, Austria and Italy next week, it has emerged. Germany’s hardline Interior Minister Horst Seehofer said talks would take place between the three nations on how to close the Mediterranean route into the EU. His announcement comes after a meeting with Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz and amid plans being considered by Germany’s government for new immigration measures at their shared border.

It’s a good first step. The second step will be to launch Salvini’s quarter-by-quarter repatriations. Preferably on a continent-wide scale.
