Cancel debts accrued through usurious rates of interest
Politics
Constitutional amendments to protect the people’s interests, including binding referenda
The barring of lobby groups and vested interests from political decision-making

Clampdown on tax evasion by the ultra-rich
The immediate cessation of privatization, and the re-nationalization of public goods like motorways, airports, rail, etc
Remove all ideology from the ministry of education, ending all destructive education techniques

Guarantee citizens’ liberty by including in the constitution a complete prohibition on state interference in their decisions concerning education, health and family matters

Scrupulously respect international law and the treaties we have signed

  1. I don’t like violence in the streets and the willful destruction of property. But I agree with the demands of the Yellow Vest Manifesto. What these protesters ask for, why cannot government take that into consideration in the first place. Why are demands like this only being noticed when such protests occur? Shouldn’t governments be there for all the people, including the very disadvantaged?

  2. The problem is that elections have been corrupted by a huge avalanche of money from billionaires and corporations. Macron was backed up and funded by a billionaire and huge corporations. He ‘owes’ them and souled out.

  3. A Green Road Daily News: What you say about Macron sounds about right. Maybe some rich people do have a bit of a social conscience. But I imagine the majority of the rich just want to look after their own interests. Most likely a lot of them are scared to do anything that disadvantages their own kind in some way. Because then they will be ‘outed’ . . .
