paris - After three 'black Saturdays' and blockades throughout the country, Emmanuel Macron finally speaks. The measures that the president is going to announce must calm the Yellow Hesjes. Their dissatisfaction arose about the increase of an ecotax on fuel, but is now about expensive life and too high taxes in general.
The 'Gilets Jaunes' have a whole list of requirements, with an increase in the minimum wage. The president does not want to do that, and he also probably discourages the reintroduction of a tax on large assets. Because the demands of the Yellow Hesjes and the possibilities and ideas of the president are miles apart, the question is whether the activists are satisfied with the purchasing power measures that the head of state will announce.
