Regime Change in France? Fierce Demonstrations Continue Against Macron

Published

on

French authorities announced that Parisian landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre Museum would be closed in preparation for mass protests against the Emmanuel Macron regime this weekend. Authorities are concerned that the latest round of ‘yellow jacket’ protests could reach previously unseen intensity, as discontent with Macron’s government appears unlikely to fade away.

Forced to take action in response to the protests some have called the most intense in recent decades of French history, Macron announced that the climate-alarmist carbon tax that initially spurred the mass protests would be cancelled on Wednesday. A day earlier he had tried to distract from anger over the measure by merely postponing its implementation for six months, a strategy that was quickly revised to its total cancellation.

However, the revision of the policy doesn’t seem to have had an effect in diffusing the protests, which appear slated to continue with renewed force this weekend. The focus of the demonstrators has expanded beyond the carbon tax, now taking a broader aim at Macron’s policies for damaging the life prospects of the middle and working class while enriching the wealthiest elements of French society. While Macron has cut taxes for the liberal elite of French elite, he’s enacted a series of policies that increase taxes and the cost of living for a majority of the French people.

The Yellow Jacket, or gilet jaunes movement seems to draw from the supporters of former French nationalist candidate Marine Le Pen as well as from leftist political movements, such as those who supported socialist Jean-Luc Melenchon. France has consistently struggled with high unemployment rates in addition to high rates of taxation in recent years.

Japan: Number of October Suicides Exceeded All COVID-19 Deaths Throughout 2020

The cure should not be worse than the problem itself.

on

Japan has seen more of its people die in one month from suicide than from total COVID-19 deaths in 2020.

Japan’s National Police Agency reported that 2,153 people committed suicide in the month of October, while fewer than 2,000 people have died from COVID-19 all year.

While it is true that Japan has historically had high rates of suicide compared to other nations, suicides had generally decreased throughout 2020.

Despite the high number of suicides in October, the Japanese have avoided implementing draconian lockdowns and restrictions for the most part, though they have been seeing record high numbers of cases in the month of November. Thus it should be interesting to see what their suicide numbers for this month look like.
