What's happening in France?

Looking at May Day footage I saw cops getting hit with molotovs in Paris. As an American, seeing cops being beaten back in the modern day is really alien to me.

Is that the way of life there? Or is this something new? I was glued to the TV during the Maidan revolution.. Protests like what I saw on video in France turned into flaming automobile trebuchets at the police.

Knowing how good the French are with siege weaponry...

I can't trust accepted narratives of the day to day during the election. What's happening? I know antifaschiste are being violent, but are the FN supporters reciprocating in kind?

Re: What's happening in France?

The French way of expressing your opinion is by marching. There were marches before the day of the election against FN, and the left-wingers marched yesterday as a sort of warning to Macron that they wouldn't let him lead the sort of marketer's policy he seems to be going for. The last time there was a real huge protest against some government's reform, it was last year against the Loi travail, when people occupied Place de la République here in Paris for several months during the summer of 2016. The Loi travail was an ultra-liberal work reform that, as it was written, made syndicates fear for the stability of employment and wages.
Macron basically represents the same kind of ultra-liberal approach to law making.
A lot of people feel here that they only had the choice between the lesser of two evils. As they say here, between plague and cholera.

btw, French media doesn't report any massive rioting. There were some encounters with the police, but that's just how it usually is.
