    Watching French TV, 15K + yellow vests rioting and looting in Paris right now.

    I guess Mr Macron is now out of flavour.

    18th week, they never stopped, just not much on MSM. Macron pulling some very dirty tricks.
    I'd only believe every other word from BBC

    We have French TV channel here at home, which is showing live coverage. Beeb link if for illustration purposes, only, Mark.

    While it is good to protest, the rioting and looting doesn't do their cause any good. However, like many protests taking place around the world, the radical element are usually the ones who kick off, the violence and needless destruction of other people's property and businesses.

    A French friend asked me why I think the looters are hardly arrested, while protesting Gilets Juane are. Interesting question. Along with leaked video of undercover police kicking off violence, and there has also been evidence of the police firing Flash Ball at peoples heads. Add that to Macrons smear campaign and I'm suspicious of what I'm told.

    I also have no doubt some of the protestors are there just to cause trouble too. One things for sure, it's a proper mess.

    French authorities probably learned these infiltration tactics from our police during 80's the miners strike.

    Could well be, but I reckon the French autorities must have learned a few tactics back in 68.

    My fav slogan of the 68 unrest. " It is forbidden to forbid"
