It's really sad what's happening there. Life is just getting too expensive for a lot of people :(

yeah, for sure. on the other hand, the mobilization to address the problems is incredible. The same type of process is happening in rural US, rural UK, all over Western society. But you don't see the same mobilization toward broadly revolutionary activity to change it, instead there is just a lot of apathy and reactionary tendencies. Not to say that gilet jaunes are free from criticism as a movement, but it is very inspiring to see rural people rising up in this way against capital & the state
