Article by Marina Klinova on the website of Nezavisimaya Gazeta



December 2, 2018 on the website of "Nezavisimaya Gazeta" published an article by the Leading Researcher of the Center for European Studies, Doctor of Science (Economics) M.V. Klinova "Yellow vests – black swans to Macron. The French President pays the bills of his predecessors".

Emerged in France three weeks ago as peaceful protests against the tax policy of the Government and the President of France, the "Yellow Vests" movement turned violent and morphed into a mass pogroms in the center of Paris…

Unlike actions organized by Trade Unions or Political Parties, the “Yellow Vest” movement is organised on social media. As expected, the social media movement was reborn: the main role was played by ultra-radicals," professional demonstrators", the so-called casseurs, who organize street riots. They have different goals than those originally put forward on the Internet…

Here are already appeals for the Resignation of the President and the Dissolution of Parliament. This is especially undesirable for the ruling establishment shortly before the elections to the European Parliament in May 2019. It will be difficult for the President to "stay above the fray". The French leaders need to do something to reduce the tension in the part of society. Now the split between "two Frances" – capital city, more prosperous, and depressive provincial – does not decrease. Nevertheless, the President and the Prime Minister want to keep the same economic cap.
