#NuitDebout Protests Are Part of a Global Movement Challenging a Broken Economic System

Sam Cossar-Gilbert

Not surprising that the French goverment wants to protect the French by clamping down on civil liberties. Shades of the 1840s are happening.

For example the wealth of the richest 782 people could power half the world with 100% renewable energy.

Those kind of statements boggle the mind. Revolution anyone? Liberté, égalité, fraternité!
