Support for Huge General Strike Building in France!

President Emmanuel Macron’s forced march of far-right economic reforms may produce France’s largest general strike since 1995.

"Despite widespread public opposition Macron is forcing through an unprecedented, universal, one-size-fits-all pension system, which includes a back-door raising of the retirement age by two years to 64.

This week teachers’ unions said they will join public transport workers, truckers, airlines, postal workers, civil servants and others in a coordinated strike on December 5th.

Many workers, including public transport, have already committed to an unlimited strike. If workers choose to strike for only one day, then few see how Macron could be prevented from enacting the pension rollback as his party has a large majority in Parliament."

How are these reforms 'far right', especially when everything Macron has done - and is doing - is far left?

Macron is a fraud. Everything I've looked at explains Macron labels himself a centrist. He made campaign promises to the left but reneged on many of his claims. The authentic labor/left view him as right-wing (big business, lowered taxes for the wealthy, tightened immigration, conservative support, etc.). I guess the label can depend on your own place in the political spectrum.

Anyways always positive to see communities mobilizing. The general strike in 1995 was the largest social movement in France since 1968. This could be big.

Also credit to the Yellow Vests. This week commemorates 1 year of active protest for economic justice.

Macron is a globalist, which is left wing ideology. That is what the yellow vests are protesting.

It's laughable to claim the right is for lowered taxes for the wealthy when it's the left who are actively taxing everyone to death and working towards total global government power and control. Leftist elites are the rich in the ivory tower, and they continually support and shield their own... working class be damned. They claim to know what's best for tax paying citizens and force their agendas as they see fit. Globalism IS left wing.

Yellow vests transported to a camp. .Because they whistled President Macron during the July 14 parade (French Revolutionary Day).
Share!!!
I've been very sick so have missed this but that looks like a concentration camp a lá FEMA camps thats been discussed and showed on youtube since 2008.

Take a look:

Are they slowly starting to bring us there? These camps and the RFID chip as under ID 2020 go hand in hand since the ones that resfuses the chips are said to be taken there. Its obvious Macron-protesters wont let themselves be chipped so this seems about right.

Same thing in Sweden, they raised the retirement age here aswell despite protests. Its bc of the extreme migration our old now have to keep working to pay taxes for welfare the migrants can live off. NICE! really..reeaallly nice... :mad:

Untrue. Globalism is an economic policy of the liberal right. It is diametrically opposed to labor unions and worker initiatives. Thankfully we can look to history to verify the reality:

"Right-wing exponents of antiglobalism do not argue in favour of an alternative globalization but suggest nationalism and particularism as cures for the problems caused by the dominant form of globalization.

Far more important in number of activists and public attention than right-wing antiglobalism has been left-wing antiglobalism. It came to public attention through protests—such as those at the gathering of the World Trade Organization (WTO) in Seattle in November–December 1999, at the gatherings of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank in Washington in April 2000 and in Prague in September 2000, and at the G8 (Group of Eight) countries’ gathering in Genoa in July 2001—and by annually organizing the World Social Forum in Porto Alegre as a counterevent to the meetings of the World Economic Forum. Supporters of left-wing antiglobalism argue that the capitalist logic underlying globalization results in asymmetrical power relations (both domestically and worldwide) and in the treatment of every aspect of life—including health, education, and culture—as a commodity."

Calls Grow for Mass December 5th Protests Against French Pension Cuts

"There is growing support for strike action on December 5 against President Emmanuel Macron’s pension cuts and austerity measures. Initially, five unions in Paris mass transit had called for a strike on December 5 to postpone calls for further action, after a widely-followed September 16 strike and wildcat strikes in the National Railways (SNCF). Now, fearing growing social anger among broad layers of workers, the unions are reluctantly calling for broader strikes. There are signs that the mobilization could be large and could paralyze the French economy."

Claiming 'Globalism is right wing' doesn't make it true. The real agenda of globalism is to consolidate power and control the world at large by an elite few, and enslave everyone else: an eventual one world government. It's accomplished through open borders [flood countries with 3rd world 'diversity', which destroys local culture and eventually nationalism], support illegal invaders and welfare abusers over tax paying citizens [removes prosperity from those who work for it and equalizes poverty], pushing pro-PC and anti-free speech culture [punish independent thinkers], expansion of 'free stuff' socialist/communist programs [brings the populace into total government bondage], manipulation of radical environmentalism to further enslave and bring everyone into line [green new deal], replace God with government... and the list goes on and on.

Those are all ideologies and practices of the left, not the right, and it's happening right now. Sorry to see you are so out of touch [or in denial] with current events.
