In France, ongoing major protests against the current government. The police beat the record of fire tårgaspatroner and the latest demonstration gathered over 100 000 people. But it was not until Pamela Anderson spoke out about the riots that I started to get curious. Maybe it is political fatigue that makes it necessary with a former Playboy model and actress that I will go running. Or is her analysis of the sharpest so far.

”I hate violence... but what are all these people's violence and burning cars, compared with the French and the global elite's structural violence?”. She tweeted. She went on to explain that the violence comes from the tension between the elite and the poor, ”between the Macrons policies and the 99 percent that are tired of inequality, not only in France, but throughout the world”.

Macron favours the rich elite

But what she and the French against the president of Macros? From a Swedish perspective, he is the stable and välkammade politician. For many frenchmen, however, he is the man who benefits the rich elite. When he met members of trade unions of workers in the t-shirt he cried that ”the best way to be able to afford a costume to work!”. Easy to say, when he has grown up in a läkarfamilj which afforded fine private schools. He has been described as both precocious and intelligent, yet he's hard to see what's happening in the country he governs. Or he doesn't.

Protests against him comes from the ”Yellow vests”. It really is about ordinary people who had enough. It started with opposition to higher fuel taxes, but the requirements also raise the minimum wage, higher pensions, an end to the reduction of the police stations and kindergartens, and a reintroduction of the wealth tax.

the Conflict bubbling under the surface

Yellow vests do not call themselves right or left, something they have in common with Macros. But it is precisely the conflict between the right and left bubbling during the protests. Classic left-wing politics to be good at to distribute the assets fairly, taxing the rich, eliminating differences and building a society for all. However, when the left fails, it left a void. A void that can be filled by right-wing, or of the movements that the Macrons lot A Marché that pretend to be ”in the middle” of the policy.

But it is not the ”center” to undermine labour laws, and lowering taxes for the rich, privatisation of infrastructure and raising the retirement age - it is right-wing politics. And it is a reminder even the Swedish social democrats should cut out and put up when they are negotiating with the Centre party and the Liberals. Otherwise, waiting difficult years, something the French, Pamela Anderson and the working class have already figured out.
