    Paris is burning

    Cost of living in the EU is rising for years, wages are frozen or going down, traditional parties are lost in the mediocrity and new extremist parties are benefiting from the situation. They blame migration or refugees so they get votes and can apply the supremacist agenda. People are angry and show in a different way depending on the country. Sometimes, as it's happening now in France, it's on the street. Other times anger is expresses in elections: Brexit, Catalonia, LePen, Austria and Hungary... Austerity measures lead to this.
  2. oh dear, more delusion, lack of knowledge and everything in between. I can only copy and paste a bit of the article. It says also that migrans should come from certain countries with low risk. I wonder which one are those countries, who's going to do the jobs that britons don't want to do, and how this will affect people from the UK who want to settle in another country too. Sajid Javid bids to slash EU immigration by 80% The home secretary plans to cut numbers to between 10,000 and 25,000 a year, with the highly skilled at the front Javid: plans ‘new conversation’ on immigrationBEN CAWTHRA/LNP Immigration from the European Union will be slashed by up to 80% under plans to seize control of Britain’s borders that will be outlined by Sajid Javid. The home secretary will shortly publish plans to end freedom of movement and preferential access for EU migrants after December 2020 that will see net immigration from Europe cut to as little as 10,000 a year. Latest figures, published two weeks ago, showed that net immigration from the EU was 74,000 in the 12 months to June, the lowest figure for six years. But the government’s immigration white paper says this figure will be slashed to between 10,000 and 25,000 long-term migrants each year by 2025. Javid will distance himself from Theresa May’s “hostile environment” towards migrants, pledging… https://www.thetimes.co.uk/edition/news/javid-bids-to-slash-eu-immigration-by-80-qs3q288t3

    ^ An article written thousand of kilometres away and showing they have zero idea. It is not about the taxes on environment on oil. It's about wages frozen for years and years while the cost of living is rising. Good point, though, to focus on environmentalist and rich people because when it comes to the EU, some meassures to protect environment are very nice and good in rich countries but impossible to reach in poor ones. Example? Reducing coal and wood as heating. A family in Denmark can afford the cost of changing the system at home and the bills of gas, but in other places it is simply unaffordable.
  4. It is always a negative light upon certain minorities. I recall when I was a kid that gays were always portraited as ridiculous, hysterical and coward, for example, which really affected self-steem in millions of gays for years. Nowadays, if young gays feel more free to express themselves is because they have grown up with positive messages from films or tv programs (at least in some countries). When it comes to other religions, Muslims have been ridiculised for decades. As much as I adore Indiana Jones movies, you only have to watch them to see all Egiptians or from other countires screaming like chickens when a pistol was in sight, running ridiculously, being laughable while being killed. Nowadays, even though most Muslim people are living quietly and contributing to European economy, the acts from a minority is making some people hating all of them, without distinction. Being said that, today we have in my city the news that Mohamed Karzai, 29 year-old Moroccan, who was at home yesterday evening and heard some woman asking for help. He run to the street and as he saw it was happening on a nearby building, the man climbed and was able to save the woman, whose Spanish and Christian husband was trying to kill with a cord. Normally, when something bad happens, the religion is commented on the news. This time, nobody is commenting that he's Muslim. Weird, isn't it?

    Yes, but imo the fight should be that rich people and especially international firms pay more. And that wages are higher after a decade of austerity. All money, well administered, pays for social care, hospitals, schools... If riches pay less after Macrons laws and middle classes too, social covertures will be more scarce.

    About the demonstrations it worries me that people are not asking for higher wages but for lower taxes. If Europe is a success in social protection is thanks to the taxes. The problem is firms trying to be more competitive by lowering wages. It worries me because far right parties always promise lower taxes because they aim for cuts in social protection.

    The thing is that the demonstrations in Paris have nothing to do with the Paris agreement and nobody was saying We Want Trump. This is like when he said he had spoken with Finland's minister about the fires or when he spoke of an attack in Stockholm. Pure LIES.

    Many countries have new left parties like Podemos in Spain. Sadly they get lost in absurdities or get real with the stablish ment and realise the elites have it all under control (Tsipras' party in Greece for example).

    Sadly things are changing for the worst. All anger is fuelling far right movements. Look at Trump and the rest.

    How come there isn't a Grammy thread?

    It's been YEARS since we cared. Doesn't Beyonce have like two thousand Grammy and real artists have only a very few? Absurd.

    I'm SHOCKED! This was in my FAcebook timeline and I thought it was some video from a guerilla from some forsaken country! If Macron thinks this will help calm the country down, then he's more delusional than I thought!
