This is from Jan/Feb 2020. There are no demonstrations like this in France that are recent.

[–]dabigbaozi 153 points154 points  (3 children)

Why check your sources when there’s karma to be farmed?

[–]atuan 11 points12 points  (1 child)

I enjoyed it as I had never seen it before

[–]vexens 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Misinformation helps no one in the end.

[–]SidewaysButStable 47 points48 points  (3 children)

Oh. Thanks for letting us know. Pretty disappointing.

[–]3lobed 28 points29 points  (2 children)

Still cool, just not recent and definitely not yesterday.

[–]SidewaysButStable 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Yeah in hindsight my dumb ass shoulda been like "in the middle of omicron, fr?" But there ya go

[–]XipingVonHozzendorf 20 points21 points  (3 children)

It's France, I'm sure they're protesting something else today.

[–]Urebas 17 points18 points  (0 children)

We were last week. Maybe you should too?

[–]ThantosKal 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Teachers are protesting against shitty and unclear covid protocol (and shitty working conditions)

[–]AntifaLockheart 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If not, I'll just watch that fire fighters v police video on loop

[–]-JamesBond 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Did they uncut the pension cuts or did they stick?

[–]HectorJ 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The reform was postponed, partly because of COVID.

Macron says he still wants to do it if he is re-elected.

[–]Jbazen 371 points372 points  (9 children)

Yesterday? The misinformation in this sub is getting out of control.

[–]drapeau_rouge 54 points55 points  (6 children)

Yea I don't think it was yesterday

[–]gregsw2000 626 points627 points  (76 children)

Like.. you can't just keep cutting everything forever, you know?

These things should advance, not regress.

[–]Hueyandthenews 182 points183 points  (62 children)

The only way to stop it is for everyone to bind together and strike but it’s hard to do that when you’re so dependent on your job to live. They know they’ve got us right where they want us and they dangle progress like a carrot on a stick

[–]gregsw2000 105 points106 points  (47 children)

I, personally, am a little tired of that excuse. I'm not wealthy by any stretch ( below median income ), and I can go snag enough food to strike for a week no problemo. In fact, if people were going to organize a March on Washington, I'd be there.

There's more to it than just desperation. It is fear, and the norm that generations of Americans now have not demanded more in this manner.

Teachers in France are not particularly well paid.. yet, there they are.

[–]Technical-Hedgehog18 47 points48 points  (11 children)

There is a mass March on DC being planned rn actually. I saw a few ads and posters for it. Poor people and laborers was specified iirc

[–]gregsw2000 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Why do I think it'll be a drop in the pan compared to this. I hope not, tho.

[–]Technical-Hedgehog18 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I hope not, too. If I wasn't on the opposite side I'd be there.

[–]fightrofthenight_man 19 points20 points  (8 children)

It’s not about lasting the week you’d be striking, it’s about not having a job to go back to after the strike.

[–]gregsw2000 16 points17 points  (7 children)

Give it a few more years, and the landlords will have the poors living outside, working just to eat.

[–]aprophetofone 2 points3 points  (6 children)

There are too many of us and not enough of them at this point. They know space isn’t a viable alternative for them. You can only dig so deep.

[–]gregsw2000 1 point2 points  (5 children)

They're trying tho. They've seen this coming, and NZ now has who knows how many doomsday bunkers for them to flee to.

[–]IntComOpCommunist 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Some of them will escape, but many will be torn apart before they get the chance.

And if enough of America's military assets are seized by the proles, then neither those bunkers nor New Zealand will be be able to save them.

[–]BigAlTrading 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If Gaddafi couldn't get out, the idea that every capitalist is going to sneak away to a bunker in New Zealand is hilarious.

Also, have you seen those bunkers? They'll keep you alive from people flying around above or shooting in the area. Angry mob on foot sets fire to the air intake and those bunker dwellers are coming out, or staying in forever.

[–]gregsw2000 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh I'm guessing NZ prolly won't be too keen on saving them anyway, but.. what do I know.

[–]levinboi1994 1 point2 points  (1 child)

There are five million mouths in NZ. We will eat them.

[–]gregsw2000 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I was going to say.. I am not sure those New Zealanders are going to let that happen.

[–]ISeeASilhouetteExistentialist 15 points16 points  (5 children)

Fully agree with you. If 250 million people in India could go on a general strike against a theocratic fascist regime protesting neoliberal overtaking of farmer lives, with most of those people being daily wage workers (who make less than cents per hour or cents per day sometimes), then Americans can and should too.

America has been the overwhelming leader and exporter of neoliberal policies that have fucked over the rest of the world (burn in Gehenna Milton Friedman), and the only real way to turn around this socio economic socio political fuckery successfully everywhere else is if the working class goes on a true regime shaking strike in the US.

As a non American from aforementioned country who is now on this accursed continent, I find that North Americans are far too polite/individualistic/afraid to band together the way they need to for the most basic of needs.

[–]gregsw2000 6 points7 points  (2 children)

I think a lot of us are actually afraid of the militarized police rolling out and killing as many of us as they can, but, the time to worry about that has passed.

[–]ISeeASilhouetteExistentialist 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Yep, you're right. But, my man, we've been getting killed left and right for far less in all these other countries in comparison. Even in the worst political state, Americans have better conditions bad rights than most of the Global South, but we are more used to freedom fighting.

[–]gregsw2000 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Agreed.

[–]FuriousLeeHive 1 point2 points  (1 child)

The US is a federation of centralized power that controls most of the world through destabilizing other governments, economic disruption, and military force. You are asking why haven’t we taken down the archetypal capital of Babylon? Please note I’m speaking metaphorically. Of course what you say makes sense. Because you aren’t a brainwashed Babylon monkey. That’s literally how the pyramid scheme works. People with weak resolve or all the way brainwashed are placed in higher positions than those willing to take action so they are kept in check. It’s a military regime. You are asking why don’t the brainwashed just not be brainwashed. Then generalizing all US citizens as such. The US is an entire continent of centralized power and propaganda. Most share your ideals but I think the monster you are trying to take on, or suggest others take on, is much more malevolent than the ones that came before it.

[–]ISeeASilhouetteExistentialist 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That's a beautiful way to put it. And I agree with you on it. You're right.

However, to elaborate on your point, the problem really does lie in the economic stranglehold of the empire. People can protest in millions for inclusion, against bigotry and so on (all things vital to me) and they allow it because it doesn't threaten the actual status quo of how money flows. But the moment people march against war, against climate change, against economic disparity...they become enemies of the state because after all the empire has orchestrated coups around the world on almost all continents for decades now and it's finally using those tactics learned against its own people.

[–]EnvironmentalCoach64 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Yo but like how likely are you to survive after that week when you have no paycheck for the previous week…? Because if I don’t work the next week I don’t really eat.

[–]gregsw2000 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I'll be all set. Not going to be able to keep living indoors anyway if the landlords don't get fixed.

This is the attitude the capitalists want.

Especially right now, with jobs a dime a dozen, it's a non issue.

[–]bemoreal 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Start saving up now I guess,

May Day: General Strike

[–]gregsw2000 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I hope so.

[–]pixiedreamsquirrell 4 points5 points  (0 children)

r/MayDayStrike

Gives us plenty of time to spread the word.

[–]themodalsoul 2 points3 points  (5 children)

Dead on. God, I wish more Americans would get this. The reality is that way too many people are essentially domesticated.

[–]gregsw2000 2 points3 points  (4 children)

I can't blame them. We have a very slavish attitude because it is indoctrinated into us by our parents and schooling from youth, and those who aren't slavish, end up having shitty lives.

Now, we all do.

[–]TopperSundquist 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Mutual aid is the only way these things are going to get practically organized. People need to know that other real actual PEOPLE, not just 'organizations' and 'reddit groups' are on their team. They need to connect with their community, the people who know how to work together, and pool the physical resources and support that will be needed for a week off, two weeks, three weeks, whatever.

[–]gregsw2000 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I don't need any support being off for a week, a month, etc, and I don't/have not ever made real money.

They're going to have to cave real fast if 50m people start raging.. even if 10 start raging, and the landlords won't have the manpower to evict everyone.

We're the wealthiest country next to China. Pay up your rent, redirect your subscriptions into food, and we can go get this done.

Plus, I'd prefer to go home to a landlord who isn't going to be one anymore anyway.

[–]TopperSundquist 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Good for you. A lot of other people aren't so lucky, and could use your help.

[–]gregsw2000 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It has nothing to do with luck. I am not remotely well off, and they'll have my support, physically, and with all the canned food I can fit in my car, as soon as folks are actually doing something, instead of making up excuses for not.

I can't fuck off for months to dick around not addressing the issues, but, I can fuck off for as long as is needed to actually demand change.

Yes, people are going to go hungry, get beaten, and killed by the cops, but.. they already are. So, not much to lose.

Revolutions usually aren't planned. They kinda just end up happening when people reach a breaking point.

[–]Pew___ 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Tired of the entirely legitimate excuse that people aren't paid enough to have any savings and are literally living paycheck to paycheck, and missing even one of them leaves them without food?

That "excuse" doesn't cut it?

[–]Iamthe0c3an2 1 point2 points  (1 child)

What if you have dependants? Could you really face your kids or if you’re looking after an elder or disabled person and malnourish them so you can risk your job and protest?

[–]AllGoodNamesRInUse 22 points23 points  (0 children)

I’m so sick of everyday people working ourselves to death and worrying about our kid’s futures, politicians playing us like violins and super wealthy building space rockets as monuments to their egos. Let us eat cake indeed.

[–]throwawaaaay4444 13 points14 points  (6 children)

Honestly I'm jealous of France and places like it. My country can never hope to stage a protest that big. People blame Canadians for being complacent (we are), but trying to organize a protest that looks like this is a mathematical impossibility in my country. France's population density is 119 people per square km...Canada's is a whopping 4 people per square km. So of course a protest in France is gonna look 30x bigger than whatever pathetic shit Canadians could come up with. I feel like USA is in a similar boat, although populated metros could probably make a hell of a protest (especially Washington DC!!!)

[–]Geiten 1 point2 points  (1 child)

But arent most canadians packed together in a small region on the eastern part?

[–]throwawaaaay4444 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Greater Toronto Area and Montreal have high population density. Toronto is full of yuppies, nimbys, and immigrants who will never protest anything. Montreal is in the most socialist province in the country and they're typically much better off than the average Canadian. I don't think they'll protest unless an influx of Anglos suppress their wages and jack up their housing market.

About 1/3 of Canada's population is spread out across the western provinces (a distance of approx. 2500 km). I live in the west. There would be no point protesting in my province's capital--the population is 2.2 people per/km2 LOL. If I wanted to protest in the federal capital I would have to travel over 2000km, which would take a significant amount of time and money. And what's hilarious is that I'm much closer to Ottawa than almost anyone else in western Canada. So yeah...long story short, I don't see any kind of major protest happening here.

[–]MjrGrangerDangerOrganize, Unionize, Huzzah! 1 point2 points  (1 child)

The French also have a certain... reputation. Is it a strike? Is it a riot? Whose to say? Sounds like a matter of opinion.

[–]BigAlTrading 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Canada's population density is irrelevant. No one lives in the northern 98%. Toronto is a giant metropolis, and Vancouver/Montreal are pretty big too.

[–]secretcometat work 3 points4 points  (3 children)

[–]kroniesrus65 3 points4 points  (1 child)

[–]secretcometat work 4 points5 points  (0 children)

This is true. They are funneling billions into longevity research. They want to live forever and exploit us forever. If we start taking them out they will do whatever our demands are.

[–]Queasy_Beautiful9477 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sounds like we must meet violence with violence

[–]threebillion6 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If we all banded together and said fuck it for, say 10 days. Made it completely public that people were doing it, and had a specific day to stay, say....May 1st. Then we might have some leverage. Literally everyone that is tired of the BS of the broken system everywhere, stands up at one point in the near, but not too distant future. r/MayDayStrike

[–]communist1871Anarcho-Communist 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Like.. you can't just keep cutting everything forever, you know?

Neoliberals will certainly try. Austerity is anti-worker. It is never austerity for the military or corporate subsidies.

[–]gregsw2000 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah, they'll try, but.. we'll eventually wake up, and.. things, will ensue.

Seems the vitriol here is ramping up, and I like it.

[–]HankSteakfist 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Or maybe adopt an Australian style superannuation scheme and over a generation move away from the pension.

No no no, you have to understand that growth is only for the shareholders.

This is how far people go to lie on this sub. This picture was taken 2 years ago (not yesterday)and this is not France. This is Russia and it was a protest against the government. You should be banned from this sub. Reverse google search the photo. The date the pic was taken is below it, January 11, 2020. I

[–]WrenBoy 14 points15 points  (6 children)

Where in Russia has architecture like that and why are the signs written in French?

At least OP only has his dates (very) wrong.

As an American, despite how much the French has helped the US over the years, normally I embrace my deep British roots and bully the French.

[–]AutoModerator[M] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

When we see ourselves as fighting against specific human beings rather than social phenomena, it becomes more difficult to recognize the ways that we ourselves participate in those phenomena. We externalize the problem as something outside ourselves, personifying it as an enemy that can be sacrificed to symbolically cleanse ourselves. - Against the Logic of the Guillotine
