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.
As discontent with Macron continues to boil over, it’s possible that the demonstrators will accept nothing other than his full removal from office.
Italian Populist Youth Group Praises Trump for His Peace Efforts
The Lega Nord is one of Europe’s strongest populist parties.
The Lega Giovani, the youth branch of Salvini’s Lega party, announced its support in nominating President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Due to Trump’s efforts in brokering peace deals between Gulf Arab states and Israel, one Norwegian lawmaker Christian Tybring-Gjedde nominated the president for the Nobel Peace prize.
In a statement, Luca Toccalini, a member of the Italian Parliament and Chairman of Lega Giovani, declared that the “globalist left is losing its mind, scared by the outcome of the upcoming American elections, and this latest news decisively increased their worries.”
Toccalini added that Lega Giovani “strongly” supports the “nomination of President Donald Trump, a just reward for the continued dedication of his administration for lasting peace with a bilateral and multi polar approach.”
The populist Italian member of Parliament noted how Trump’s Middle East agenda has contrasted with Obama’s:
After a decade of turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa, sponsored by a globalist agenda and President Obama’s dreams of revolution, the last 4 years have seen great improvement for the stability in our neighbourhood which has also helped Europe.
Wishing four more years of peace and greatness, as Lega Giavani we strongly support Donald J. Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Matteo Salvini and Lega have led the way in putting populism on the map throughout Europe. Salvini broke the mold by implementing pro-gun reforms in 2018 and 2019. What seems like a concept that is only confined to the U.S., now the right to bear arms is starting to enter the conversation in Europe. Political organizations like Lega have undoubtedly changed political discourse in Italian politics and Europe, for that matter.
Youth organizations such as Lega Giovani will play a substantial role in spreading Lega’s message and educating younger generations of Italians and preparing them to be the new populist vanguard of an ever-changing European polity.
