Group C Week 2 - Yellow Jackets, the government and elections in general.

Post by Admin on Mon Jan 14, 2019 12:55 pm

A more serious topic this week.

I want you to discuss the yellow Jackets (gilets jaune) and the governments actions over the last few weeks. Do you think that demonstrating is a good way to make a point? I also want you to give your views on elections in France (and the world). Will you vote at the next election? Will you research the views of politicians? What do you think of Politicians? How can the system be improved? And anything else you want to say. Make an effort.

The yellow jackets is an important events for France and the French. This mobilisation on the road is really bad for the politicians and the system the they drive.
I think that they manifest for a good idea but not in the right way.
My views for the election particularly in France I think that the mandate is too long because the politicians have the time to make mistake and repair them and there image at the end of the mandate is good when their actions are not really good for the country.
The job of politician is really particular because they must act in the interest of all the population and this is really hard to satisfy everybody and it's normal, but however it's not normal that we discover all the time that they have not been honest with the people.

The Yellows jackets movment started physically on november the 17th; but people was talking about a protestation movement on the middle of october. This movement is a protest movement with strike and demonstration (french cliché). This protest movement started with this announcement of the increase in fuel taxes, on the the 1st half on november, people put their yellow jackets (mandatory in a french car) on the dashboard of their cars in protest sign of fuel taxes. The 17.11, more about 280k people demonstrate all around the France and mainely on roundabouts. And since this day, each saturday, their is demonstration.
After a few saturday, medias understood that yellows jackets don't demonstrate just for the fuel increase, their is more, unfortunately, more and more people can't finish the month with money,their is more and more poor people, and the reform did for 15 years does not go in the direction of the poor people, so the reason is not the fuel increase,this increase is juste the match that fired the powder.

The yellow jackets

Post by Charlotte Sauvaget on Wed Jan 16, 2019 9:41 am

the yellow jackets are people I respect, each individual and free of his choices and everyone has the right to make it heard. But I do not agree with the fact that it blocks the roads because to go to work it is very enervant and I am oas of acceord with the deterioration that it is made incommensible.

Hello John,
The yellow jackets are a good silk deed, but they don’t do it right. The first goal was interesting. But this took on too much scope, the population revolts for other subjects than for the first subject. Breakers have also taken the yellow jackets as cover to destroy France, both in its iconic symbols such as the "Champs Elysées" and the cars or shops of people who have asked nothing. This is just unacceptable and intolerable.
Now, on the issue of politicians, it’s quite complex to judge. Everyone has their own thoughts on this, but in my opinion not many people can govern France. Politicians make a lot of mistakes, they cannot meet all the French criteria.

Have a good week

Yellow jackets is stupid for me, we need to pay at one moment the debt of the gouvernement. Peoples complains to don't find jobs ... But I work since I'm 14 years old without any diplomas ... Peoples complains for the augmentation of ecological transition... But if nobody pay for that, how will do it ? I can speak to this shit for long time but is not realy positiv. So for me yellow jacket are big ball of shit.

Hello John,
The yellow jackets it's an important topic today in France because this mouvement mobilizes a lot of people on the road in France and moves a little the politicians and the system. For me this mouvement it's normal. The French citizens are tired of too much and can't be heard, so I agree with this movement, but I don't agree with the violence it engenders. Such a movement that mobilizes so many people and also for a long time could not happen in a calm atmosphere and the government reacted alone when the violence appeared. 2 weeks ago I went to Bordeaux and I met the young student of 20 years who lost his hand during the demonstrations, I was very shocked and terrifying. I would go to the next election only if I agrre with a politician and I made inquiries about it because politics is very difficult for me.
