President Emmanuel Macron has been forced to climb down on a few issues and has even made a couple of concessions to the Gilets Jaunes, but here’s the thing: They won’t back down.
There’s no way that the people will simply call an end to these protests, just because Macron said he might reduce one tax or two.
The people are angry. They have been forced to work for low wages, and while the poor are being taxed, the rich are getting tax cuts.
From my reporting over in Paris, I learned that the people simply won’t stop protesting until the President is gone.
