Back on Dec. 1, The Loftus Party published a post on the “Riots in Paris as French Dissatisfaction with Macron Continues,” which featured on-the-ground reporting and imagery from Martina Markota of The Rebel. The Rebel has posted additional videos of its exclusive reporting from France. Here they are along with some brief observations about them.
The three videos are from Dec. 3 - Dec. 5, so they are a bit old in terms of social media life. Also, two of the videos are fairly long: one is over 13 minutes (see the video at top) and the other is over nine minutes. But don’t let the age or length of the videos keep you from watching them. They go by pretty quickly and offer information on what is happening in France that you just won’t find from legacy journalists.
The top video features on-the-scene coverage of the actual riots, including when things get a bit dramatic for Buckby and Markota, starting around the 9:25 mark.
The second video provides an in-depth interview with a French man, who provides one perspective on why the French have taken to the streets.
And the third video provides a glimpse of how out-of-control immigration is changing the nature of Paris and the rest of France.
The French are not happy with President Macron, and while some of that anger arises from the rising price of fuel due to taxes, there are other reasons as well. But that’s something you might not know if you’re still getting your news from legacy sources.
