Macron brings together his cabinet crisis after the riots of the ‘yellow vests’

Emmanuel Macron seeking without success a way out of the worst crisis of his presidency. The debauchery violent in the demonstrations of the yellow vests —the movement without leaders or program that was born against the tax on diesel and now calls for the resignation of Macron— it increases the confusion in the French Government. The prime minister, Édouard Philippe, yesterday received the order to meet with the leaders of the parties and to the representatives of the protest. After an emergency meeting, there were no significant announcements in the field of the security or the social.

What to do? This is the question now in the Elysee Palace, within walking distance of the stages of the riots, the most serious in years. Macron, elected in may 2017, not saw coming an outbreak which primarily is directed against you, and that takes years brewing among the working classes that have progressively seen laminate your purchasing power. Neither has been able to give with the formula that you clear reply . In the immediate, you must address an issue of public order. The priority is to prevent new riots in the next call. In social networks already circulating one for the next Saturday.


Keys for understanding why the protest of the ‘yellow vests’ harms to Macron Macron seeks to disable, without yielding, the protests of the ‘yellow vests’

Macron convened a crisis cabinet which was attended by the prime minister, Édouard Philippe, the minister of the Interior, Christophe Castaner, and the minister of the Ecological Transition, François de Rugy. After the riots of Saturday, Castaner does not rule out, in a television interview, the reintroduction of the so-called state of emergency, or state of exception. France established the state of emergency following the terrorist attacks of 2015. Abolished in 2017, when it adopted a law that became permanent some of its elements. The state of emergency to restrict freedom to people who may represent a threat to Mavibet security.

The presence of Rugy in the meeting was not casual. The revolt of the yellow vests —the pledge mandatory in cars and has become the emblem of the movement— is, in its origin, a revolt against the taxes on the polluting fuels to discourage their use. But today the list of demands goes beyond that. Includes feasible measures —like the moratorium on the increase of the rate to the oil— until the abolition of the V Republic.

412 people were arrested, according to police, that figure in 133 people wounded in Paris

The response of Macron has been minimalist. The French Government has offered aid to cover the energy bill or the purchase of cars that emit less. Also has promised that will take into account the oscillations of the price of a barrel of oil at the time of raising rates. And has convened three months of meetings across the territory to discuss these issues. The helping hand has served for little. The president, who has made a principle of government not to backtrack on their election program, it does not yield on the essential: the rise of the scheduled rate the diesel for the 1 of January.

When you ask Philippe to receive at Matignon, the seat of the prime minister, political leaders and the representatives of the yellow vests, sends a message of openness. The whole question is about what to talk and with whom. There are No representatives of the movement with a mandate to speak on behalf of all. Or a claim clear. A principle would be, perhaps, the moratorium on the increase of the fuel in January.

In the newspaper Le Journal du dimanche, a group of yellow vests that identify themselves as "constructive" proposes institutional reforms. To quote the introduction of the proportional system in the elections —instead of the system of two spins, which discriminates against small parties or anti-establishment— and a more frequent use of referendums. Also condemn the violence.

The ideas of these yellow vests more moderates have been overwhelmed by political professionals. Laurent Wauquiez, president of The Republicans, the great party of the traditional right, calls for a referendum on the eco-program and fiscal Macron. Jean-Luc Mélenchon, leader of the populist left, celebrates the “revolt of citizens,” this weekend in Paris, and François Ruffin, figure emerging from his party, The France Insumisa, proclaimed: “Macron must leave immediately.” Marine Le Pen, head of the Rassemblement National, heir to the party of the extreme right, Front National, calls for the dissolution of the National Assembly. The opposition has smelled blood.
