    My friend in Italy says, as far as he can tell, the original protest was organic. People were pissed off about what the new price of gas was going to be after all of Macron's globalist taxes were in place. He says, however, it was not long before other groups started showing up too, trying to convert this one into their own campaign. He says now the Marxists and Antifa are in there burning ****.

    This seems to be how these things evolve. Ukraine and Syria are other examples where a core of protesters gets taken over by extremists (or even terrorists) and the momentum builds.

    But another observation is that for better or worse, when elections - the democratic process, - doesn't bring about change, it takes massive public participation and usually violence to make change.

    The Macron jock-sniffers from earlier this year seem to have grown quiet
