Hey dear friends,
As you know, I'm French, I just want to talk what's happen in France since almost 2 months, since Macron decided to increase fuel taxes, electricity, gas... It was canceled by Edouard Phillippe, Prime Minister, but it's not sufficient and it's bluring, why ?
Because, normally France is a democracy, we noticed some referendums, all law, is the people, by the people, we haven't it since 2005, the European constitution, but I'll notice this later.
Yellow protesters want "RIC" (Référendum d’initiative citoyenne) to have like 500.000 endorsements then to send it to national assembly to analyze this by deputies, it take alot times, but could works, maybe...
In France we lost 1 factory per day they relocated in others members EU countries, 800 jobs are lost per day since 1992, we approved the article 63 of European Treaties about to relocate without the authorization of the French government, but only by the European Parliament, we can't change european treaties, because article 48 said : "Unanimity for changes any treaty" EU have 28, soon 27 members of EU, it's like they live in a big building and someone ask to have a new color wall, someone want a new stairs, and someone again want a new door entrance, yes it's like that, but who decides ? European Commission.
Back to 2005, France voted "NO" for European constitution, but Nicolas Sarkozy applied this in 2008 like we voted "YES"... And now, the situation is very catastrophic, but some people want a referendum to reclaim the FREXIT (I not shame to say I voted for a guy that we want Frexit, last presidential in 2017, but censored by medias cause of that) more French talk about that, and yes, it could be happen, with next european election, because article 50, is not to have unanimity to reclaim a Frexit, Brexit, Italexit... So wait and see for may 2019.
