Nothing about this in Australian news, ever, even on YouTube.
We need a lot more uploads so we know what's going on in Europe. Your news is being suppressed worldwide by the American media.

Congratulations France! This is what people power looks like. The only thing other countries can achieve together is to complain in unison. The chance of ending your working life in poverty is ever increasing.

Vive la France!
