The people want an end to all taxes related to the climate change swindle.

Let us live and enjoy our lives and we'll stop protesting.

Quit try to control and tax every aspect of our lives under the auspices of some vague climate change crap.

The people want an end to all taxes related to the climate change swindle.

I put here the same thing I posted yesterday :

For those who think the french people changed its mind on climate change, here are some demands of the Gilets Jaunes movement :

GRAND PLAN D'ISOLATION DES LOGEMENTS. (FAIRE DE L'ÉCOLOGIE EN FAISANT FAIRE DES ÉCONOMIE AUX MÉNAGES).

Big housing insulation plan (doing ecology while allowing household to save money)

FIN DU CICE. UTILISATION DE CET ARGENT POUR LE LANCEMENT D'UNE INDUSTRIE FRANÇAISE DE LA VOITURE À HYDROGÈNE 

End the CICE (companies tax break). Use this money to create a French hydrogen car enterprise.

FAVORISER LE TRANSPORT DE MARCHANDISES PAR LA VOIE FERRÉE.

Favor cargo transportation by rail.

And according to polls, 93% of the population believes in climate change, 76% believe it's a worrisome problem, 59% think the problem is underestimated.

The French people is rejecting this tax because it's unfair to the poorest, not because it's related to climate change.

FAVORISER LE TRANSPORT DE MARCHANDISES PAR LA VOIE FERRÉE.

I'm not sure the truckers - who have been largely present with the so-called "gilets" from the 17th some using their trucks as roadblocks - will be liking that too much.
