France Endures Street Fury Amid Persistence of President Macron


France Continues to be Plagued by Social Unrest as Macron Stands Firm

The streets of France continue to be inflamed by social anger following the approval of the controversial reform of the parliamentary vote without a vote, as well as the rejection of two motions of censure. Despite diverse economic sectors becoming paralyzed and potentially fuel shortages in the near future, the president, Emmanuel Macron, has not been deterred. Following a tense confrontation between demonstrators and police in Paris, the president called in the heaviest members of his government and his parliamentary group, and leaked the message that neither the government nor elections or a referendum will be called for, as demanded by the opposition.

Unions and opposition forces are eager to maintain their struggle, both institutionally and on the social front, with appeals being filed before the Constitutional Council and the intention to force the government to call for a referendum, which requires 4.5 million signatures. Regardless, the president persists in his stance, and will reveal his strategy to diffuse this political crisis in interviews granted to the two primary television networks in the country.

France’s social unrest serves as an example of the enormous power at stake, and the tensions that come with pursuing or envisioning major systemic changes. The resistance against the proposed reforms in France echoes protests that have been occurring in other countries, with working people expressing frustration and a rising desire for change. The divide between government leaders and working people only seems to be growing more and more apparent, and it remains to be seen how this conflict will play out on the streets and in the halls of power across the globe.
