On May 1, France saw another round of nationwide protests, with violence escalating in Paris and other cities. Protesters declared “the beginning of a new French revolution.”
Immediately after the start of the protests, violent clashes between the black bloc protesters and law enforcement officers began in the French capital. The police used tear gas. The radicals threw firecrackers, paint balls and bottles at the guards, they also smashed the windows of banks and other enterprises.
According to the French Interior Ministry, 291 people have been detained and at least 108 police officers have been injured.
The day before, French police were allowed to use drones equipped with cameras to monitor the crowd at protests. Human rights organizations have filed a complaint against this decision, saying that the use of drones in this way violates fundamental rights.
President Macron is trying to turn the page in a fierce debate over his pension reform plan. Macron insists that the proposed changes are necessary to reform the system, while some of the government’s own experts expressed the opinion that the pension system is in relatively good condition and is likely to return to a balanced budget without reforms.
Public anger over the proposed changes was compounded after the government used Article 49.3 – known as the “nuclear option” – to push the reform through parliament without a vote in March.
On April 14, the Constitutional Council of France approved a key article of the draft law on pension reform, which assumes the increase of the retirement age in the country from 62 to 64 years by 2030. On the same day, Macron signed the law, the document was published in the official journal.
While May 1 is celebrated worldwide as a labor rights holiday, this year’s rallies in France marked a broader disillusionment of citizens with the authorities. The growing violence of the protesters may lead to uncontrolled escalation.

Fake and gay. Remind me what happened the last time in France after things burned and rocks and bottles were thrown . Oh that’s right, nothing. About as relevant as Macron being egged, only less likely to influence anything.
You’re probably right, but it would only take one serious incident to change things now that the protests have reached this level. And there are likely many people who are currently working to create this incident…
It will be interesting to witness the EU disintegrate and to then emulate the chaos that NATO members have inflicted on weaker nations that have assets that the elite of the NATO countries covet.
It is not so good for now to disintegrated, maybe some reforms and changes, because radical disintegration will lead to mass war and chaos. NATO just exploited the situations. There were many civil wars there, in places like Syria or Afghanistan, long before NATO existed.
Unfortunately you fail to understand that the same people who created those “civil wars “ in the countries you mentioned are the same people who created n a f o which now IS the armed wing of we f
Who are these “same people”? British? Jews? Americans? Spanish?
Meanwhile , in the US , Americans sit with their heads buried up their fat asses , oblivious .
Revolution is their DNA, waiting for another Martin Luther type, to nail demands on the
door of macronni. Italy and Germany are set to pop off. Mean time new Europeans
headed that way in a convoy of sorosism boats.
The guillotine might just be dusted off and brought out much to the dismay of Macron and Associates.
gangs should organize in groups of like say 100 strong and have multiple of these groups go after the NAZI REGIME COPS and target a section at a time and attack all at once and beat the living shit out of those NAZI COPS. =Z=
So you support gangs? Gangs are worse than the cops. Far worse.
Cope are gangs that protect the rich politicians that act like mafia
Whats the difference dummy?
These “anarchists” are funded by Soros mr dummy.
for every 10 you gather 1 will be a fed. 2 3 or just yourself will have to do for now
Liberte ou la mort
jewish bankers rule france macron is literally ex goldman and sachs
they should throw water balloons with gasoline on the police and then light them up with a torch
Those pensions were negotiated, no one should be able to change and agreement on a whim.
Both sides are actually funded by lobbies of the elite.
How come the criminals with badges everywhere always serve and protect the tyrants instead of the citizens?
When you support turmoil and riots in other countries… you should wait for it to come around…
The filth French call “police” are rubberized vertical pork thugs that are long overdue for deep grilling. This is what a real revolution looks like and its coming to the rest of the angloZionaZi empire of shit. Vive le France and to hell with these vicious rubber scumbags. Z
Warming up, for the real conflict… When the true riots start, that’ll be the end of EU.
Unlike the so called Arab Spring which was orchestrated by hostile outside forces, the marches in France appear to be purely organic and not carried out by paid agents like the ones in Venezuela and other countries. These marchers have a clearly articulated position and are fighting to maintain their rights and freedoms that their government is trampling under foot.
How do you know that they are not paid?
This is normal in france. If it does not end in the next days then it might have something to do with the fact that macron was talking about an independent european foreign policy towards china and not blindly following us orders. Something that shocked the eu and especially german polititians. How dare he…
Kedy sa začne zo streľbou ako tomu bolo na Majdane v Kyjeve? Inak tu tí policajti sú dosť agresívni. Tí v Kyjeve stáli a držali líniu. Tak, že nie je to celkom ono. Ale začína to byť dobré, len tak ďalej. Za práva a slobodu treba vždy zviesť boj. Tú vám nik nedá zadarmo.
The same show every year. This ´´black bloc´´ is a regime product. There are many regimes in this world. They are there for riot pictures at the push of a button.
Western leaders have come to see their people as farm animals however this attitude is often forced into correction by its victims.
Majú tam pekne veselo. Myslím, že teraz by bol vhodný Majdan v Paríži. Nech si to tí politici na západe užijú. Aby vedeli čo spôsobili v Kyjeve keď podporili Banderovských fašistov.
All the West needs revolution. The Western governments become dictatorships and police states.
Two choices in 2022 presidential election : 1) Less immigration expenses to keep pension wages : Le Pen. 2) Less pension wage expenses to spend more money in immigration : Macron. French people did choose Macron by 58.55%.
when they have macron naked in chains dragging him down the champs lysees, call me LOL
The Jewish extreme left, (Trotskyists), leading riots against Macron and doing the job for the Anglo-Saxons.
