Europe has gone from one madness to the next. The great renewable heist is one of the biggest and it starts to shred peoples lives. They understand. They know now that renewable is a big fat business where some manage to claw huge money out of the many. They know that live becomes unbearably expensive with all this crap. The fuel tax was the drop that made the barrel overspil. Macron could not have known that. Too many times he and his predecessors shoved down this expensive marketing hype until one day, the average masses could not bear it anymore. It will happen in other countries as well. This is what happens if you present them with “its the earth or them – they will eventually chose themselves”.
Protesters have scaled the Arc de Triomphe in central Paris, as clashes with riot police continued during a third weekend of “yellow vest” rallies. Police fired tear gas, stun grenades and water cannon on the Champs-Elysées, while masked protesters hurled projectiles and set buildings on fire.
