Macron’s dilemma

Khaleej Times - - FRONT PAGE -

Em­manuel Macron is faced with a dilemma. If he stays the course, many more will join the ‘Yellow Vests’ protests, likely re­sult­ing in more vi­o­lence, while bow­ing down could re­sult in an es­ca­la­tion of de­mands. The French gov­ern­ment should re­alise that the protests are not just about gas but about peo­ple’s fi­nan­cial woes, and reach out to the work­ing poor liv­ing out­side the wealthy ar­eas of Paris. Or else, the un­rest is likely to spread.
