Default France

Lettuce discus the apparent color revolution. The reversal of the gas tax didn't appease the masses, now this is apparently circulating the populace:

"This is a message for the population: It is the calm before the storm!!! Make provisions: fuel, food, medicines!!! We are going to block everything starting from the 10th of December. We will only stop once what we are asking is implemented. We have had enough of being taken for fools. We want to live, and not just survive. Come with us on the 10th of December. No school, no government services open for business. We will block all entries and exits to airports, supermarkets, offices etc.. We are alerting the population. Come with us on the blockades or stay at home. We yellow jackets are non violent, but we will not be satisfied with pretty words. We want acts!"

inb4 GK and "let the plebiscite eat yellow cake"

Yep the situation is a mess. But where did this message come from exactly? Can you cite a source please?

I know you don't want to hear this, but it's more Putin fingerprints.

Did you see some of the demonstrators are wearing #QANON gear?

personally, I think you are vastly overestimating the capabilities of Putin/Russia.

I haven't seen the qanon stuff, but I haven't been paying a ton of attention. is the qanon stuff related to russia? (wouldn't surprise me if Russia was behind the qanon stuff tbh)

if is actually far more nuanced than this. FB has a hammer /nail problem. Everything is "socialism!" Even when he doesn't understand what socialism is.

Gotta admit, with all the attempts to destabilize western democracies lately I'm a little suspicious of the motives here.

Not sure I know enough about the situation to form any kind of serious opinion though.

And you are vastly underrating them--this stuff isn't hard to do if you decide to spend some money on it.

Putin hates the US, UK, NATO and the EU--so anything he can do to put a thumb in the eye of pro-EU leaders, he will do it.

This is aimed at drumming up discontent in France with the hope of changing their gov't (Putin favors Le ***** and the NF) and eventually a #FREXIT.

Have you not seen how many Russia connections are being unearthed in the #BREXIT vote? Or do you not believe that either?

Nah, you're right.

In any country with strategic importance to Putin and his new Axis of Douchebags, you'll find this **** happening.

US, UK, Spain, now France.

I went to Lyon in 2004. Not even Paris. But apparently Lyon is the culinary capital of the country, and the food was out-of-this-world.

Boiled pigeon soup
Filet mignon topped with seared foie gras
Chicken that tasted like lobster
on and on

Wood go back!

I finally made it last summer. I loved it overall but damn its expensive. We got an Air BnB for $250 a night in the heart of where you want to be and it was basically 100sq ft with a second story bed where the ceiling was 4ft tall. The bathroom was so small I could barley fit in the shower like 1.5x1.5 no joke.

A lot dirtier than i thoght itd be bit overall loved it and we are planning to go back soonish. Ireland was cooler though
