Macron to announce response to ’yellow vests’ after months of protests

Following months of ’yellow vest’ protests, French President Emmanuel Macron will announce a package of measures that could include lower taxes and the abolition of France’s elite Ecole Nationale d’Administration. Macron was initially scheduled to announce the policy measures last Monday but was forced to postpone after a fire tore through the Notre-Dame de Paris cathedral.

I thought his response was having the shit kicked out of them? I wonder if he is rethinking brutal tyrannic oppression in favour of something more ethical.

What a shame France has boxed itself into a corner. Macron can't loosen their ridiculous labor laws without protests; he can't raise taxes to pay for new benefits they are demanding; he can't touch the gas tax to combat climate change as demanded by the public. And Marine Le Pen couldn't get any reforms done either. They have no alternative.
