The White Working Class Are Rising Up To Revolt In Europe. The yellow vests protests began after the French government imposed a tax on gas and diesel.

This meant that once again the urban areas would continue unscathed following government action on climate change and be immune to the economic ramifications of a globalized economy.

Now entering week three, it is expected to continue as French president Emmanuel Macron refuses to negotiate.
