They protested for a whole year with little to no effect, then covid. The good intentions were there, but we all know protests will never get us anywhere. Some tried to press some rotschild buildings and news org, they were quickly removed and not mediatized much.

Protests don't work because the elected officials who rule over us no longer care what we want.

Their demands were met by the government. It's a testament to all the other times governments gave back power, because of people holding signs.

I wonder if the French will now require or motorists to carry orange safety vests in their cars instead of yellow.

Probably like the ongoing protests in Hong Kong, it’s just not sexy anymore
