so can I ask you why you're here with the GLA John I actually came here to protest against our unfair tax system and against generally speaking the corruption of the country and also because it's it's women to get together with a lot of people who are angry at the same moment for similar reasons and this is a good way to reunite against what's wrong with this country today and can you tell me what exactly is wrong with the country what's going on with these taxes what's the big deal well it's gonna be a long list this tax is a one drop or as you will say in English it's the straw which breaks the camel's back this is really the last reform of long lasting recall because France is actually the EU country with the highest tax rates and many people cannot live with it some people can get along with it but still the harsh way and the problem is they don't tax people who have a higher revenue and they don't tax people who hope for you to God how do you feel McCrone is responding to these protests badly mostly he's quite well he's actually very harrigan staying in his position on the other hand you cannot really blame him from for not abandoning all he wanted to do which was basically taxing the poor taxing the middle class and letting the highest revenue still evade taxes so he said this over in his presidential campaign he said this was what he was going to do and people still voted for him do you think those people are gonna start turning their backs on him now some people actually did yes for example the elderly people retired many of them actually voted for me for him and now they are turning their back to him because they can with it anymore they also have lower revenues now because they wanted to lower the revenues for 40 retired people and on the other hand they still taxed some other people so how do you think the votes gonna swing in the may european union elections I will say the foulness denies going up and maybe some other parties on the right wing and more most specifically parties outside the system I still don't know if there are new parties forming right now if some people have new ideas maybe they are going to emerge like the 5-stars movement in Italy we don't know yet but surely many people return and balladeer back to Macomb because there was a big movement behind him thanks to big media coverage thanks to quite a high level of propaganda during the election and it was still in favor of him for the Parliament election but right now it's really going down he's the most unpopular president ever in the Fifth Republic and so it's going against him I think one thing I think a lot of people are wondering is what's with the Yellow Jackets this is mandatory to have a yellow jacket in your car is a security jacket and so this is mandatory and movement was based on the tax system on the G's Diesel especially for the drivers so it was at first the drivers protest and I saw a big protest from people who drive from the countryside to the cities and so on and it's worth quite a lot because it's actually quite easy to recognize people on the street it's a big uniting sign and it wasn't any more cost for the people because they already had it in their cars make sense can you tell me how the media has been responding to this because I've met many people today really honest decent people just genuinely concerned about their own family's futures how are the media portraying them it depends some media portrayed him as ultra-right far-right or ultra mega super nova rights or something but some other media like the little independent media tend to want to interview like normal people and portray normal people but most of the time there the press is actually very afraid of the protesters because many of them got mugged and still today as well even Russia today which isn't mainstream media or nothing the Ivan quite the the opposition the Russian controlled opposition so they were they were mugged today during the protest yes who do you think it is is doing the mugging because I've I've noticed a lot of shops burnt about a cars turned upside down but I also noticed some graffiti at the side of them who do you think's doing it according to the graffiti this is clearly anarchist during the burnings at the cars on the shops for the media it really depends because I would say even normal people are really fed up with the media so I mean you can see in here right-wing slogans left-wing slogans during the demos also a political slogans like Mukunda mission which really is a political because everyone is shouting it with the same voice with the same tone together but otherwise there are clear signs that you see the anarchists doing lots of looting there are so people from the suburbs profiting from looting especially when stock actually I saw today the the the thieve markets the theft markets where they just sell stolen goods is that where they're going maybe yeah if the guys doesn't have the need for that then you're just gonna say to this thieves market here okay so do you think Mac Ron's gonna listen do you think any of this chaos anything that's happening on the streets do you think he's ever going to stop and think may we actually change what I'm doing I doubt it somehow but I would say the protest got really angry today it got quite mad quite violent and so they they have to react in some way or another for now the reactions were really bad from the Interior Minister and he really showed in a very good way in a quite perfect way which is really close to the perfect are the perfect painting of how incompetent he is so it's actually when you listen to him talking on television he has no idea what he's talking about he's just bullshitting something and I mean he got the place without having any qualifications and he's showing it every day every time he opens his mouth so what would it take for you to stop protesting him for everyone else to stop protesting what do you want to happen I would say quite a lot but the taxi system is a quite a thing which got to the people on the street first hand the corruption is what made people stay as well because of the frauds about the carbon tax about the environment low generally speaking and so I would say many people want the hypocrisy to end about environment and taxing so basically texting a right way and also stopping the offending of big corporations because big corporations are taxed offended in France many big corporations get money from the state subsidies and they don't need it it was said that we are giving them money so that they employ people there was no guarantee they would do it and I didn't do it so basically basically basically [Laughter] this corruption system to to stop and also many other things like for example uncontrolled mass immigration which is also funded by the tax system many things about for example modern arts being funded by the local institutions which is also a big waste of money and generally speaking the waste of money to highly pay the politicians with which is at the same time gets a dirty money from outside of the politics so it's actually quite a lot a lot needs to happen well let's hope Makram lessons Cheers if you'd like to help us cover the most expenses for this fact-finding mission to Fran's please go to breadcrumbs calm and you'll find all our reports there as well you
